Why does Joey Chestnut sweat so much?

I’ve watched a bunch of competitive eaters but the way this dude sweats is more concerning to me than how much he is eating. What the fuck is making him sweat like that? I know he says “meat sweats” but I’ve not seen that with other competitive eaters.

Might just be a sweaty guy. Then again, I’ve never tried eating 70 hotdogs at once. I’d imagine that does some interesting stuff to your body.

A few years back he ate some thing like 12 pounds of asparagus. Can you imagine what his pee smelled like?

That’s terrible. I’d rather eat the hotdogs. Probably pissing sulfur for months.
