At the 2022 event, Chestnut was not able to set a new world record, but he was still able to put on an impressive show.
On the way to his 15th title, he was able to consume 63 hot dogs and buns.
However, the title did not come without a fight.
According to Fox News, the champ was interrupted by protesters about halfway through the 10-minute event.
Chestnut reportedly grabbed a man around the neck and helped pull him to the ground before returning to his position.
“Joey was on a record pace. We should have witnessed history,” one audience member told the media outlet.
“That guy totally messed with [Joey’s] momentum.”
A man was arrested shortly after the altercation, Fox News notes.
