Perennial Hot Dog Eating Contest champion proves once again that he’s still king as he successfully and amazingly munched a record-breaking 74 hot dogs in just 10 minutes, earning for him in the process a $10,000 prize.

Joey “Jaws” Chestnut is proclaimed again as the champion in the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. This marks the third straight title for the 34-year-old constant contestant.

The fresh win on Wednesday afternoon in Coney Island is also Chestnut’s 11th in the last 12 years. It is also his wonderful way of celebrating the Fourth of July, especially by emerging the winner anew and becoming $10,000 richer by just eating all those hot dogs.

Chestnut has been setting contest records the past three years. In 2016, he became the first contestant to ever hit 70 hot dogs, then upped that to 72 last year, and this year, he has outdone himself yet again with an astonishing 74 franks and buns.

The Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest has become a staple of July 4th in the country, making it an All-American kind of tradition. Chestnut has practically become the face of the competition for more than a decade. Many even have come to recognize him as a “true American hero.”

Chestnut’s only loss in the contest over the past dozen years came at the hands (and mouth) of Matt Stonie in 2015.

Perhaps another very American thing- though not all may find flattering- but the eating contest has also become popular for betting, with Chestnut entering this year's event as a -550 favorite, according to Oddshark. The over/under on hot dogs consumed by the winner was 72.5.
