by Greg Pollowitz

Joey Chestnut is a double winner today.

The seven-time hot dog-eating champion successfully proposed to his girlfriend on stage at prior to the Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest, and half an hour later, he was crowned the champion again this year.

He didn’t break his record though. Chestnut devoured 61 hot dogs in 10 minutes, eight hot dogs short of his previous record, 69.

Matt Stonie lost to Joey Chestnut by five hot dogs. . .
