Crushing his fellow gluttons at the annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Competition on Coney Island, Joey devoured 69 franks, a new personal record.

It's a five-peat for Joey Chesnut.

The competitive eater gobbled away the competition yesterday at Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island yesterday. The San Jose, California native fell six short of the record 68 he swallowed in 2009, but was still proud of his overall effort.

"I came out here to win and did what I had to do," Chestnut told ESPN.

On the female side, Sonya "Black Widow" Thomas ate 40 hot dogs to conquer all.

Watch highlights of these voracious victors above.
