With the 4th of July approaching, what better way to celebrate our independence than by eating as much food as humanly possible, because we're America and that's what America does. One of our reigning champions of professional eating, the human garbage disposal, Joey "Jaws" Chestnut competes every 4th of July in the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest and has taken the prized "Mustard Belt" home seven years in a row. Now, if you think that is extraordinary, check out his top seven most impressive eating records that he currently holds.
