Some might say there’s nothing more ‘Murican than when Joey Chestnut reclaimed the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest crown by downing a record 70 hot dogs in just 10 minutes – on the Fourth of July, no less. Meanwhile, Japan’s Yuka Kinoshita would probably just giggle politely.
Though the California-born Chestnut might be America’s current hot dog eating darling, over the past two year, Kinoshita has become a Japanese celebrity by proving that excessive eating doesn’t have to just be an American pastime. On a nearly daily basis, the petite YouTuber who has earned the nickname of “gluttonous beautiful woman” (okay, maybe Americans are still better at nicknames) has continued to gulp down ridiculous amounts of all sorts of foods – including US staples like hamburgers and, in one recent video, Chicken McNuggets.
