The pandemic couldn’t stop a tornado!
Epic eating champ Joey Chestnut, wolfed down a world record 75 dirty water dogs and buns Saturday, capturing the famed ‘W’ on Coney Island for the 13th time.
The 6-foot-1, 230-pound Chestnut, whose face turned beet red as he shoved the dogs in his pie-hole, was gorging at a blistering pace of nearly 10 dogs a minute at one point.
With two minutes left in the blowout, Chestnut, a San Jose, California, resident, had eaten his career 1,000 hot dog, the announcer trumpeted.
The annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest is synonymous with the Fourth of July.
No matter the pandemic, the 104th annual dirty dog devouring went on but not at the fabled Coney Island boardwalk. This year, the contest took place indoors at a Nathan’s storage room.
The judges wore masks and practiced social distancing and the contestants were handed the wieners by assistants clad in Nathan’s masks and latex gloves.
