Joey Chestnut is going for a record 16th belt at Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest on the Fourth of July. He's managed to put away some cash, too.
Joey Chestnut has won Nathan's Hot Dog July 4th hot dog eating contest 15 times.
He made $500k in 2022 and His net worth is $4M.
I guess with anything, if there's sponsors, you can make alot of $.
and he could make more... LOTS more... if he did a competitive eating youtube channel.
Matt Stonie, the last man to beat Chestnut at Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest in 2015, now focuses on his lucrative YouTube Channel. He has more than 16 million subscribers and is widely believed to have made several million dollars for his food-eating exploits.
Chestnut said he has dabbled with his own YouTube channel, but it lacks what he loves most about competitive eating.
