Video: Kobayashi Ate 65 Hot Dogs, Not 69

There’s nothing like competitive eating controversy.

On Monday, Kobayashi demolished 69 hot dogs at a remote location, while Joey Chestnut won his fifth straight Nathan’s International Hot Dog Eating Contest with 62.

Or so we thought.

A new video has surfaced that shows Kobayashi actually ate 65 hot dogs – not 69. Still three more than Chestnut demolished on the 4th of July, but three less than the world record set by the American in 2009.
