‘Competitive eater’ Joey Chestnut downs hot dogs in Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Joey Chestnut is considered the best in the world when it comes to competitive eating.

The eating champion is in Charlotte this weekend to visit Coca-Cola Speed Street.

Chestnut stopped by WBTV on Saturday to share details about the July 4th International Hot Dog Eating Contest.

He’s known for his eating-records involving hot dogs, so WBTV decided to challenge him on air. Check it out in the video above.
