Woman eats record 32 burgers
Competitive eater Molly Schuyler finished 32 burgers within 10 minutes in the 10th Annual Z Burger Eating Championship, breaking the 27-burger record she set last year and taking the champion title for the fifth time.
The event took place at the Tenleytown location of the local chain and is one of the biggest burger-eating competitions and a must-attend race for professional eaters nationwide. Men and women were entered in the contest to see who could eat the most burgers in 10 minutes.
The audience was shocked by how much food Schuyler, a 40-year-old from Plumas Lake, Calif., could consume. But she said it’s her job to win.
Among the 16 contestants, 10 were first-timers. While most of the newcomers try to empty their stomachs for the competition by not eating anything beforehand, the veterans do not worry so much.
“Me and two other competitors went out, and we got 30 McMuffins and three dozen Dunkin Donuts,” said Schuyler, describing her breakfast.
Schuyler has won the La Costena Jalap-eno Eating Contest, and took second place in the Gringo Bandito Taco Eating Contest and second place in a pizza eating contest before turning to burgers.
