Ten-time champion Joey "Jaws" Chestnut successfully defended his title in the Nathan's Famous July Fourth Hot Dog Eating contest in NY.
In addition to bragging rights - and, probably, one heck of a bellyache - Chestnut also won $10,000 as well as the renowned 2018 Nathan's Mustard Belt. Not only did Chestnut win, but he beat his own record while simultaneously setting a new world record.

Chestnut was a favorite in sports betting circles to win another mustard belt, as bookmakers told ESPN more than $1 million was bet on the annual eating contest across the offshore sportsbook industry.
