Let's see here. According to this site, there are 309 calories in one Nathan's hot dog, and 20.1 grams of fat. It's not clear if that includes the bun, but let's assume it does. For 68 hot dogs, that's a whopping 21,012 calories and 1,366 grams of fat!

Here's Joey in action:

I would say that nutrition information includes the bun.

The information from the official site makes the 68 dogs and buns a bit better of a meal than what you posted.

Interesting to see that there are bottles of mustard and ketchup as if they are going to pause to season the dogs before they eat them!

They could have done some on the first set before the 10 minutes started, but that would be extra calories and wasted space in your stomach.
