The July 4th Hot Dog Eating Contest is an annual tradition.

This year (2017), Joey Chestnut set a new record downing 72 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Wish from Cool 98.7 decided to see how many hot dogs he could eat in 10 minutes.

The hot dogs used were Cloverdale Reds and they were cooked using an indoor George Foreman grill. The competition took place inside Wish's living room at around 2pm on July 4, 2017. The American flag hanging on the wall is actually there year-round and was not put up just for this video… not like that matters.

Take a look at the video above to see how Wish compares to Joey Chestnut. The video is sped up for your convenience. You can see Chestnut's 72 hot dog eating performance below. That video is not sped up.
