Down goes Chestnut. Long live the "Megatoad."

For the first time in nearly a decade, the world's hot dog king is someone not named Joey Chestnut.

Matthew "Megatoad" Stonie devoured 62 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes at Nathan's International Hot Dog Eating Contest in New York on Saturday, beating longtime champion Chestnut's tally of 60 and winning his first Mustard yellow belt.

At 5-foot-8 and 130 pounds, Stonie beat his own record of 56 from last year's contest. A smiling Stonie told the crowd it was surreal to win on the sport's biggest stage.
