Joey Chestnut, winner of Nathan's Mustard Yellow Belt, told the Brooklyn Paper that he is "not even going to try" to chew further into hot-dog legend Kobayashi’s territory "by eating more than 17.7 pounds of pan-seared cow brains in 15 minutes, a record that most people think can never be broken."
“That’s not for me,” he told The Brooklyn Paper. “There are a lot of foods in this sport that I don’t want to eat because it would take the fun out of it for me."
