Yes, the Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest winner is an American named Joey Chestnut (they should've called him Joey "Bustagut" ). He defended his title from the former champion Takeru "The Tsunami" Kobayashi of Japan. Nice to know that gluttony is America's now to own!
I watched an MTV True Life documentary on competative food eating and watched Kobayashi-san train. It made me sick watching it. The dude ate something like 11-12 pounds of food to stretch his stomach out in time for the competition. Gross! It made me want to fast just so I could even attempt to eat again.
