Joey Chestnut had 52, but the last two or three minutes he REALLY struggled to keep up with Kobayashi... he appeared to throw up in his mouth a little bit on a couple occasions.
I'm sure you really wanted to know.
Can't believe Joey got that close.
For reference, I just saw that great PBS special on hot dogs. It first aired in 1998, and noted that that year's champion set a world record with 19 hot dogs.
Proof that we are still evolving.
