In one of the most romantic developments to ever occur at a competitive food-eating event, American hot dog eating champion Joey Chestnut proposed to his girlfriend onstage at the 2014 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.

Chestnut bent the knee at an unexpected but highly appropriate time, asking the young lady for her hand in front of a packed Fourth of July crowd at Coney Island.

She said yes.
