Joey Chestnut, Takeru Kobayashi Facing Off in Hot Dog Eating Contest on Netflix



YouTube, @ESPN Throwback.

Legendary competitive eaters Joey Chestnut and Takeru Kobayashi will face off in a hot dog eating contest on Netflix.

The contest, dubbed “Chestnut vs. Kobayashi: Unfinished Beef,” will air on the streaming giant on Labor Day.

The announcement of this contest comes a day after Chestnut was banned from competing in Coney Island’s Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest after he signed an endorsement deal with Impossible Foods, a vegan hot dog brand.

Chestnut has won the Nathan’s contest 16 times, while Kobayashi has won the contest six times.
