Joey Chestnut; His Legend Grows But His Waistline Don't!

A little less than a year ago we wrote a short piece and posted a video about competitive eater Joey Chestnut, who today won Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest on this July 4th in New York's Coney Island. Joey won for the fourth consecutive year with 54 hot dogs in ten minutes.

His win was not without a WWE style moment when past champion Takeru Kobayashi, who didn't compete this year, tried to storm the stage after Chestnut's win. After a struggle with security and police Kobayashi was arrested and charged with resiting arrest, trespass, and "obstructing governmental administration".

Earlier on CBS Sunday Morning Bill Geist hosted the following segment on the greatest competitive eater of our time, Joey "Jaws" Chestnut.....but he won't take part in any mayonnaise eating contests.
