Chestnut has been working with Silver Spring Foods in Eau Claire on sauces that bear his name.

He appeared live on WEAU 13 News at Noon with Courtney Everett, talking about how he got into competition eating, how he trains, and the new sauces.

In December, Chestnut won the St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail Eating Championship in Indianapolis, making it five in a row.

Chestnut has won the famous Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest ten times and in 2017, he ate an event-record 72 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes to win. He holds a number of eating records, and is called the "greatest eater in history" by Major League Eating.
