Joey Chestnut wins 10th title with record 72 hot dogs

Joey "Jaws" Chestnut is won the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest for the 10th time on Tuesday, woofing down a record 72 dogs in 10 minutes.

The new high-mark beats his previous best of 70 dogs back in 2016. Second place went to Carmen Cincotti, who ate 62 dogs.

Chestnut wasn't the only repeat winner. Miki Sudo won the women's division for the fourth time by inhaling 41 dogs in 10 minutes.

If you think this sounds incredibly unhealthy, it was. ESPN business reporter Darren Rovell estimated on Twitter that Chestnut consumed about 20,000 calories with more than 2,000 milligrams of cholesterol. (.Mic)
