IIRC he got beaten 2 years ago and didn't compete last year for whatever reason(or maybe this was 3-4 year s ago.)So yes, he can, and has been beaten, even if he has regained the title.

Free hotdogs for a year as a prize? After eating that many in a minute I wouldn't want to see hotdogs for a year.Fun to watch though.

Is there skill at this level or is it mainly genetics and attitude? I can't imagine physically fitting that much food into my body.

Ah, the belt of fat theory of competitive eating.

I never realized how ripped that guy is. Got some massive arms for a Japanese dude.

If you are a fat ass, I guess your stomach cannot accept a lot of food, all the fat will block the expansion of your gut...but if you are skinny then you can expand your stomach, just a guess on my part. Sonya Thomas ate an 11 pound cheesecake, 10% of her bodyweight

How is it possible to fit that much food into a human stomach in such a short amount of time?
Link Posted: 7/3/2012 6:41:07 AM EDT
I can eat 3 hotdogs in 10 minutes then I'm done.

holy shit, look at his arms...steroids anyone?

I love hotdogs.  

I don't give a shit if they are lips and buttholes, I eat them like they are never going to be made again.

Yeah, supposedly he flexes his stomach to help compress the food.  Though I'm betting his biggest help is simply eating lots of food quickly to stretch his stomach during training.

He's the Champ, and world record holder. Takeru is the #1 contender.

Takeru's little PR stunt after he threw a hissy fit because he couldn't compete last year was a farce. He never ate 69 hot dogs, CNBC got the video, he ate 65 hot dogs.

Tekura is not a contender. Tekeru set the bar. 6 straight wins, and when he jumped on the seen he bested the previous year by 2x. He was the best of his era. He is is in the twilight of his career.



Chestnut is now looking at 6 straight wins, and there appears to be no contenders in sight.

Sonya is freaking tiny. Saw her at a mall hot dog eating competition. There was no serious competition for her, just some locals. I walked past her on the way out talking to a guy, pissed that she only ate something like 40.

There is a lot of training and individual technique that goes into this.  They wolf down things like lettuce and grapes to practice stomach expansion.  One guy said he practices by chugging 2 gallon jugs of water at a time.  That's around 16lbs of liquid.    Jaw fatigue is another serious problem.  They do exercises to condition the muscles.

I saw on the news a few years back, where Nathan's hot dogs changed the rules, specifically to exclude this guy. He protested, and was removed from the area. I didnt keep up with the story, so don't know if he got back in the competition?

After 3 it feels like I'm going to shit my pants.  I can't eat hot dogs.
