Last year’s winner,  as well as five time winner of Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, Joey Chestnut chowed down two gallons of chili in six minutes! This year is going to be quite a sight if he decides to top last years record!

The professional chili-eating contest is held on the main stage on Sunday and an amateur event will be held on Saturday for eaters from the DC area.



Watch last years contest here!
