Poll: How many hot dogs can you eat in 10 minutes? (121 votes)

One and done 10%
Two hot dog minimum 29%
Somewhere between 3 and 5 37%
6 to 9 9%
A hot dog a minute for 10 minutes 6%
Seriously, more than 10 2%
I'm Joey Chestnut 2%
70 5%

So there was this hot dog eating contest yesterday, one of the most American of American events to happen on Independence Day. Men and women of several ages show up and take gluttony to a whole new level, but one man has out-gluttoned them all with his stomach which I assume contains a black hole.

So... how many hot dogs can you eat in a 10 minute period? Serious and non-serious answers are preferred.

'Murica.

3 or 5 at the max. I don't need to end up having a heart attack.

I'm full after two. Anything else would risk making me sick.

I can't deal with more than three. And not just in 10 minutes but total.

Whenever I eat hot dogs, two's enough. Though I could do three, maybe four before I started regretting it.

How can someone seriously eat so many hot dogs? There's no way that there's enough room in their stomach to cram that much food inside. Well, apparently there is, since people do it, but I don't have any idea how they could possibly do that.

Anyway, I voted 3-5. I'm pretty confident that if I were trying, I could down a hot dog every two minutes, though I would be so full I'd feel sick after that.

Not many because hot dogs are disgusting. Gimmie a couple brats and then it's fun time.

If I had to, between 3-5. I normally am fine with 1 or 2.

i can deep throat a whole hot dog so they can slide down quite easy.

Just one. If I'm eating a hot dog, it's at a BBQ where there's other good stuff to eat along with it.

I have done 11 in 10 minutes once.
Oddly enough, I didn't have a heart attack, take that backseat medical-wannabes!

So around 10 on a good day, I guess

One or two. I'm healthy and I don't plan on having problems with my cholesterol.

#12 Posted by Sticky_Pennies (2019 posts) -

Enough of them.

#13 Posted by BeachThunder (11932 posts) -

Less than one.

#14 Posted by Oscar__Explosion (2298 posts) -

3 if there's not much on it (like just ketchup or something) otherwise I'm done after 2.

#15 Posted by CornBREDX (5277 posts) -

with bun, I'd be full at 3.

#16 Posted by TooWalrus (13197 posts) -

I mean, I feel like I could eat like 10 if I had to... but I try not to be an animal.

I bet I could get to five, but then I would probably start to feel ill.

Man, I wish that there would be someone who could really challenge Chestnut. I mean, having him dominate every year is getting boring.

Probably one, maybe two. I'm no contestant I'm a person who eats food for necessity

In some weird way, I was rooting for the Juggalo on the left in the picture above.

You mean Tim "Eater X" Janus? I was kinda rooting for him too. According to the announcer, when he was young, Eater X had an arm bitten off by a Bengal Tiger. Then it grew back.

No love for Kobayashi?

But for serious. Zero. Fuck hot dogs.

Turning gluttony into a sport is revolting.

Exactly. Bratwurst fo' life.

#24 Posted by Veektarius (4828 posts) -

3 in ten minutes, but I doubt I ever would rush myself that much. If I'm in a hurry to eat, one will probably do.

#25 Posted by SeanFoster (868 posts) -

I'd never eat more than 2.

#26 Posted by Nekroskop (2786 posts) -

Disgusting topic. Children in Detroit are starving.

Hot dogs with buns, or just the hot dog itself? I'd be able to do a ton of hot dogs on their own. The bun would complicate things, but I could possibly get it down to more than one a minute if I put my mind to it.

I've come to enjoy a hotdog or two, but no more than that. I'm not silly.

I could really go for a chili dog now, thanks.
