Alright, I wasn't, either.
Winning the competition for the sixth year in a row was Japan's Takeru Kobayashi. Not only did he win, but he broke the world's record (which he himself had previously set), eating 53 3/4 HDBs (hot dogs and buns—there's an acronym for everything) in the 12-minute limit.
So, next time your significant other glares at you for scarfing down a package of Oreos (not that I'd ever do such a thing), tell him or her that you're in training.
Only after winning his sixth hot dog-eating contest did his mother finally forgive him for dropping out of school to become a competitive eater.
