San Jose resident and competitive eater extraordinaire Joey Chestnut claimed victory again Wednesday at the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest in NY, downing 74 franks in 10 minutes for a new world record.

The renowned competitive eater from San Jose, California, takes home the coveted Mustard Belt and surpassed the previous mark of 72 dogs and buns he downed past year.

Winner Miki Sudo (C) competes in the women's annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4, 2018 in the Coney Island neighborhood of the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

Joey Chestnut walked away as the victor of this year's "Nathan's Famous July Fourth Hot Dog Eating Contest". (Nathan's was also once the world's largest hot dog stand, with each dog costing 20 cents a pop.) In ten minutes, the world's top competitive eaters get to try to consume as many hot dogs as possible. "And then once I feel like the food has moved and digested, I'll have one good day of protein, whether it's fish or turkey, maybe chicken". "Joey said, "look at my plates" and Carmen said 'look at my plates.' We counted the plates that they had eaten and it was 64 and 74".

This is Chestnut's 11th overall Nathan's title. Held annually each year, today's contest was the 102nd since the eating event was inaugurated. He bested last year's record of 72 hot dogs. The rule remains the same and simple - eat as many hot dogs and buns as you can in 10 minutes to be declared the victor. The prize money, as in years past, is $10,000 for the first place victor.

Ten-time victor Joey "Jaws" Chestnut will confront 20 other men during the men's competition later Wednesday for the coveted Mustard Belt. The winners in 2017 were Joey Chestnut and Miki Sudo. The 35-year-old Baton Rouge native won a spot in the contest after qualifying in Houston by eating 39 hot dogs. Sudo has won the last four.

Apparently thousands of people turned out for this year's competition in over 90 degree heat, wearing hot dog-inspired fashions and cheering on the competitors.
