Beat world eating champ to win Ye Olde Oak hotdogs for life

Ye Olde Oak has launched a competition to win a lifetime supply of hotdogs.

But first, you must beat the world hotdog eating champion Joey Chestnut.

The ‘Phoney Island’ contest pits hopefuls against the 12-year reigning number one who can put away 75 hotdogs – with buns – in 10 minutes.

Those selected to challenge the American competitive eating supremo will do so via Zoom on October 26 when National Sausage Week begins.

All the hotdogs and buns will be supplied by Ye Olde Oak, of Sowerby Bridge, Halifax, who will referee the contest alongside an independent third party.

You’re advised to have to hand a supply of water or other drink. Condiments are permitted as long as they’re cooled beforehand.

Messy eating can result in a yellow card and vomiting equals disqualification.

If after 10 minutes there’s a draw the leading competitors must neck five hotdogs in the quickest time to win a supply of Ye Olde Oak hotdogs for life.

Bryn Scadeng, Head of Marketing and Innovation at Ye Olde Oak, said: “The US has always dominated the world of competitive hot dog eating and we’re simply not okay with that.

“We believe the champion of the world is here in the UK, so prepare to be stuffed silly with sausages in this new competition. Good luck to all entrants, we believe in you!”
