MEGAN BASHAM, HOST: Some people have unusual skills.
Take Joey “Jaws” Chestnut, for example. He is the undisputed champion in his particular sport. He’s prevailed eleven times over the competition.
Now some people will debate whether his field of competition is really a sport.
At a weigh-in last week ahead of the big July 4th contest in New York, an emcee made clear Joey’s status.
SOUND: The number one ranked eater in the world, the 11-time Nathan’s Famous champion of the world, 74 hot dogs and buns … Joey Chestnut!
Yes, Joey Chestnut ate 71 wieners and buns to secure his 12th Nathan’s Famous title. And he did it in 10 minutes. For that, he earns $10,000!
MARY REICHARD, HOST: Not baaaaaad.
