What’s more of an American celebration than overeating? Overeating hot dogs. For sport. On friggin’ TV. The world’s best-known competitive snack-down, Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, is back at Coney Island for its 44th year. Thousands gather to watch as the most talented gluttons prove just how many of America’s finest delicacy they can swallow (and keep down) in 10 minutes. In an upset, last year Matt Stonie stole the championship from famed competitor Joey Chestnut by consuming 62 hot dogs. Will Stonie keep his title or will Chestnut return to his former record-setting 69-dog glory days of 2013?
