NEW YORK (AP) -- Will they serve hot dogs at the wedding?

Joey "Jaws" Chestnut took a timeout from the Coney Island hot dog competition on Friday to propose to a fellow competitive eater.

Chestnut got down on bended knee to make it official with longtime girlfriend Neslie Ricasa.

She said yes.

The happy couple hails from San Jose, California.
