Who Will Win Nathans Hot Dog Eating Contest 2010?

Kobayashi won’t be competing this year so who is the front-runner to take down Joey Chestnut?  Let’s see Patrick “Deep Dish” Bertoletti win this!

OK the update is that Joey Chestnut keeps the Mustard Belt for yet another year.  It wasn’t even close.  He downed 54 dogs in 10minutes.

    I love Nathan’s hot dogs! They are so meaty though, I can never eat more than two at a time, and that’s pushing it!

    That last picture is…. frankly…. kinda scary.

    I’m not sure what the policy on outside links is, but if you’re wondering what Kobayashi was up to today, “getting arrested at the event” is apparently the answer!

    • Nathan says:

      Kind of a waste for him to show up and not participate but, if you look at the other angle, he deflected most of the attention from Joey’s win to himself. In that, it was basically a middle finger to the competition saying that the competition is nothing without him in it.

      • J.B. says:

        He did and it was masterful.
        Joey Chestnut is a douche, can’t stand the guy.

          Yep, Chestnut is a total douche, and MLE/IFOCE are f***tards too. They tried to make Kobayashi sign an agreement that basically said ‘you cannot make money this year’ before they would let him compete. Lame.

    Did anyone see the ‘King of the Hill’ episode “The Fat and the Furious” about competitive eating.

  5. Cassaendra says:

    Aye, that last picture is a bit frightening.

    I can’t believe that hot dog eating contests are serious business that people are barred from participating because they don’t sign a league contract. While it is a tidy sum, it sure takes the fun out of a competition.

  6. why wasn’t Kobayashi allowed to compete??

    • ratbuddy says:

      Like I mention in my response above, it’s because MLE/IFOCE wanted him to sign a contract with an exclusivity clause. He wouldn’t have been able to participate in any competitive eating events other than those sponsored by MLE/IFOCE. That’s how he makes his living, and there are many events which aren’t MLE/IFOCE sanctioned, so he would have been shooting himself in the foot if he signed the overly restrictive contract. I think MLE/IFOCE shot their own foot by trying to get him to sign.

      They should have let him eat.

  7. The fact that he has an exclusive contract for pro eating is both awesome and kind of pathetic at the same time…. man I want in
