Joey Chestnut Just Won His Eighth Straight Hot Dog Eating Contest! But not before proposing to his girlfriend.

How do you celebrate your engagement AFTER you've eaten a year's worth of greasy, processed meat?  Someone now has the answer to that question.

JOEY CHESTNUT is the best competitive eater in the world. He's won the annual July 4th Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest in New York for the past seven straight years.

Before this year's contest, he had a twist, he proposed to his girlfriend, Neslie Ricasa, right there on the stage.  She said yes!!!

Then Joey pounded down 61 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes to win for the eighth straight year.  Neslie is ALSO a competitive eater, but she only got down 10 hot dogs.

HEY WAIT A SECOND! Is it just me or is there something wrong when the groom-to-be is better at stuffing meat down his throat than the prospective bride? And anyone else notice the name of Joey's love interest sounds suspiciously close that of a cookie and candy company? I think HE thinks he's pledging his lifelong loyalty to a Baby Ruth.
