In the most grotesque live competition I've ever seen, Joey Chestnut set a world record and earned his third-consecutive Mustard Belt by eating 68 franks and buns in 10 minutes at this year's Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island, NY.

Chestnut steadily kept his lead over his archrival, Takeru Kobayashi, the 2001-2006 world champion, who finished with a 64 dog-count. The two men tied at 59 wieners last year until Chestnut won a dramatic five hot-dog eat-off.
