2008 Hot Dog Eating Contest

The 2008 hot dog eating contest went into overtime (the "dog-off") this year, with Joey Chesnut of the U.S. coming in with the win. In all he ate 64 hot dogs, 59 of which came in just 10 minutes.

Is anyone else disturbed by this? Besides the fact that it's just plain disgusting, there have to be some serious health risks involved in stuffing your face with that many hot dogs.

As a side note - one of the contestants was a Men's Health model.

I watched some of the footage of the guys obviously choking back the food from coming up. That was kinda gross.

Yep, it's dangerous if you're not naturally talented.

Camilla, I could be wrong but I think they were trying to get the food quicker down the throat. The movement looks like they are puking but isn't. Then again, I could be wrong.
