Stryker and Klein were joined by legends this morning! On one line the incredible competitive eater, Joey Chesnut and on the other Gloria and Richard Pink of Pink’s Hot Dogs.

Gloria and Richard announced they are honoring Joey Chesnut by naming a brand new hot dog after him!

Richard teased that the hot dog would be topped with jalapenos, grilled onions and so much more. And, as if having a hot dog named after him wasn't enough, Chesnut’s photo will now go up on the Pink's Wall of Fame next to Stryker and Oprah. 

This is great news for Chestnut, as he gears up for the 2020 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest this Saturday, July 4th. No stranger to the contest, he has held the title of reigning champ nine times and holds the record for most hot dogs eaten at 73.
