Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest: The top 10 record-holders for most eaten (all by Joey Chestnut)

Joey Chestnut is coming back to defend his crown at the 2022 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.

Well, it’s the crown that he’s had for the past six years — he was last defeated in 2015, when Matt Stonie beat him 62 to 60. But it’ll be interesting to see if Chestnut breaks his own record from last year of 76 dogs, which broke HIS own record of 75.

And if you’re here, you might be wondering: What are the records that Chestnut has set and broken over the years that he’s won? Fun fact: The top 10 of all time all belongs to him. Only if you expanded it to 11 would Stonie show up.

Let’s run through it:
