Like watching Tyson get knocked out for the first time, we could hardly believe our eyes when Kobayashi lost the annual hot-dog-eating competition to up-and-comer Chestnut in 2007. Of course, Chestnut is no flash in the pan like Buster Douglas—the Cali-born competitive eater has won three consecutive Nathan's titles and currently holds the world-record: 68 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes. Pause infinity.

Chestnut currently holds no fewer than 18 world records of competitive eating, including those for hamburgers (103 in eight minutes), chicken wings (8.98 pounds in 12 minutes), and pulled-pork sandwiches (45 in ten minutes).
