Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest 2022: Who Won the Hot Dog Eating Contest?
Chestnut took home the mustard-colored belt for the 15th time in his career and finished 15th in the last 16. He drove to the win by eating 63 hot dogs. Geoffrey Esper took second place with 47.5.
Fun fact, Chestnut now has more championships in a single event as tennis star Rafael Nadal, who won 14 French Open titles.
As previously mentioned, in 2015, Chestnut missed an opportunity to win nine consecutive Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contests. While eating 60 hot dogs, Stonie beat him by two at 62 to end the commotion.
Chestnut has been winning the competition since that loss, and it doesn’t look like he’ll lose again any time soon. 15 championships is nice and all, but will it be really exciting if he aims for 20. We believe it.
