“The dogs were cooked really well today. I think they cooked them ten minutes ago. That helped a lot," he clarified.

The explanation sent Twitter into a firestorm of debate -- trying to decide whether the actual cooking style of the dogs actually helps them go down easier. "They looked boiled to me," one fan pointed out.

"Good lord almighty, Joey Chestnut has obtained a new world record of 75 hot dogs. Joey says they were cooked really well. Actually reports that he hit a wall at one point and just pushed forward," another person tweeted.

The contest was a bit different this year, considering we are in the middle of a worldwide pandemic. It was held inside of Nathan's storage room, instead of on the beach, with no crowd in attendance.

The judges wore masks and practiced social distancing while the contestants were handed hot dogs by an assistant who was wearing latex gloves.

Plus, Miki Sudo also shattered her hot dog eating record, pounding 48 1/2 hot dogs, breaking her previous Coney Island even record of 41.

“To everybody watching at home, I wish you could be here,” she told cameras after the victory.

So, bottom line, it's the way they are COOKED which makes a huge difference?! Who knew!
