Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest took place today. Takeru “Tsunami” Kobayashi apparently wasn’t too happy with the outcome. Joey “Jaws” Chestnut, ate 54 hot dogs in ten minutes. and, Kobayashi stormed the stage. Kobayahsi arrested afterwards for his actions. Apparently jealous is huge in food eating contests.
This was the 95th annual contest held but the first year to see Kobayashi arrested. The horrible part is that Kobayashi wasn’t even competing. He is under contract with Major League Eating. Kobayashi won this particular contest for six consecutive years.
As for what was really going on, Kobayashi arrested after basically showing just what a spoil sport he was. Chestnut won the contest from him in 2007 and wasn’t amused with the antics at all. Chestnut didn’t help matters by issuing a statement regarding Kobayashi. Chestnut basically said if Kobayashi were a real man, he’d be on the stage eating, and competing.
