Matt Stonie beats Joey Chestnut to win Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest

Published On July 6, 2015 | By Morgan Ryan | Entertainment News

The annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest went down in Coney Island, New York on July 4th . . . and there was a HUGE UPSET.

31-year-old Joey Chestnut has won the contest eight years in a row . . . it’s been almost a DECADE since anyone else walked out of there as the champion.  UNTIL NOW.

A 23-year-old guy named Matt Stonie won by eating 62 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes . . . while Joey “only” ate 60.  Matt came in second last year . . . he ate 56 to Joey’s 61.

Joey still holds the world record, which he set in 2013 when he ate 69.

Matt’s prize for winning . . . besides eternal glory . . . is $20,000.  Weirdly enough, both Joey and Matt are from San Jose, California.
