Here's Joey Chestnut Eating 61 Hot Dogs in a Single GIF
Joey Chestnut proposed to his girlfriend on stage and then ate 61 hot dogs to win Nathan's Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island for the eighth time in a row on Friday. Sonya Thomas couldn't win for a fourth time in a row as she lost in the women's competition to Las Vegas's Miki Sudo, who ate 34 hot dogs. Photos by Nate "Igor" Smith for the Village Voice.
