Could Jordan Davis compete with the great Joey Chestnut?
Georgia football fans are celebrating the 4th of July, including watching Joey Chestnut in the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest, but could Jordan Davis compete with him?
Today may be America’s birthday, but a burning question is whether former Georgia football great Jordan Davis could beat defending champion Joey Chestnut in a hot dog eating contest .
One of the country’s permanent traditions for this holiday is the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest, where Chestnut has demolished its competitors for 14 of the past 15 years.
He’s on the hunt for another title this year, which has raised the question of whether someone like Davis could rival or even dethrone him?
While some people who watch the contest religiously know Davis would likely lose because there’s a lot of training that goes into the competitive diet — maybe Davis could do it.
Could Georgia football stud Jordan Davis compete with Joey Chestnut?
Although our Twitter poll didn’t get that many votes, the small consensus is that Davis couldn’t compete with Chestnut. It’s not very reassuring to see Dawg fans giving Davis so little credit, but you have to give it to Chestnut. He is a stallion in his own right. At the same time, however, we are huge Davis fans here and would support him no matter what.
Georgia football players don’t train to eat competitively, but someone as tall as Davis knows how to eat. Maybe the competition shouldn’t be a timed hot dog event, but one of who could eat the most food in a single setting.
If that was the game, I think Davis could beat Chestnut, but this guy eats for a living.
The smart answer to this random but burning question is that Chestnut would blow Davis out of the water. However, it’s fun to argue because someone like Davis is two to three times the size of Chestnut, so there should be a silver lining for the big man.
Chestnut is working on an eating contest with Tom Brady, so why not Davis? The former Georgia soccer player might shock the world, but eating 76 hot dogs in a short time doesn’t sound like much fun. However, who are we to say it’s not – people all over America love it and look forward to it every year.
Do you think Davis could compete with Chestnut if the two sat down for an eating contest? How many hot dogs would Davis eat before typing? We think Davis could eat about 30-40 hot dogs if he trained for it.
