Chaos broke out at the annual July Fourth hot dog eating contest at New York's Coney Island when six-time champion Takeru Kobayashi tried to jump on stage shortly after the winner was announced. Kobayashi did not compete in this year's event because he had refused to sign a contract with the speed-eating body Major League Eating.
I met Kobayashi when he was in town in May for the CP Biggest Eater Competition 2010. He's a nice man. He lost the wonton shrimp eating contest to Joey Chestnut but as always, he's very popular with the crowd. You can watch the Kobayashi vs Chestnut shrimp eating contest video I filmed for Klik.TV here.
