  • After Joey Chestnut was disqualified from this year’s Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating contest due to his partnership with a rival veggie hot dog, he has a new place to eat!
  • Netflix just announced a hot dog-eating competition with rival champions Joey Chestnut and Takeru Kobayashi in an event titled Chestnut vs Kobayashi: Unfinished Beef. 
  • “I know that fans have waited a long time for another chapter of our rivalry, and I can’t wait for our massive showdown live on Netflix! It’s time to give the people what they want!” Chestnut said in the press release.
  • Kobayashi had recently revealed that he was retiring from competitive eating over health concerns.
  • “Retiring for me will only happen after I take him down one last time,” said Kobayashi. “This rivalry has been brewing for a long time. Competing against Joey live on Netflix means fans all over the world can watch me knock him out.”
  • No matter who wins on September 2, it’s a clear win for competitive eating fans and Netflix!
