Joey Chestnut wins 2014 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest: Twitter reacts


Joey Chestnut continues to prove every Fourth of July that he’s one of the greatest American athletes in history by continually winning the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. On Friday, he proved it again by winning his eighth straight event and holding off a fiery Matt Stonie in the process. And yes, eating an ungodly amount of hot dogs does prove that you’re a great American.

Every year we’re mesmerized by how many hot dogs this man can eat in a less than 15-minute span, and on Friday, it was on full display again as Chestnut ate.

Afterward, as is the case every year, the twitter world got their Independence Day holiday kicked off by marveling at just how impressive Chestnut’s most recent feat actually was.
