Joey Chestnut eats 92 tacos to win World Taco Eating Championship

Think you could eat close to 100 tacos in eight minutes?

Joey Chestnut devoured 92 tacos in just eight minutes to win the World Taco Eating Championship in Fresno, California.

His name should sound familiar since he's the same guy who always wins the annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest on July 4th in Coney Island.

The West Coast event brought out the top competitive eaters in the world, but they were no match for Joey "Jaws" Chestnut.

One girl gave it her all, but Chestnut kept chowing down to earn the $2,000 prize and title, according to local station FOX26.

The hundreds of tacos looked good before the competition, but lost their luster during. Keep in mind it was over 100 degrees outside that day and the tacos had a kick to them.

The heat from the sun made Chestnut sweat and the heat from the tacos proved to be a bit of a curveball because everyone seasons them differently.

Chestnut says, with hot dogs, he can practice with the same meat and build a tolerance.

But that's not the case with tacos.

He says next year he'll have a better idea of what they're going to taste like.

Practice makes perfect!

Now, who's hungry?
