Not too long ago, we hosted an In-N-Out 50×50 challenge in the hallowed grounds of Foodbeast HQ. Competitive eaters such as Nader Reda and Raina Huang each attempted to best the burger, with Raina completing the challenge in less than 40 minutes.
Now, another combatant has thrown her hat into the ring.
Famed competitive eater Molly Schuyler has stepped up to take on not just the In-N-Out 50×50, but requested we make it a 100×100 challenge.
The $154.84 bill yielded a monolith of meat, taking nearly half an hour for the restaurant to build and nearly half a dozen boxes to transport it back to Foodbeast HQ.
While Schuyler was apprehensive whether she could defeat such a comically large burger, she dove into it once the clock started and didn’t stop until that last piece of lettuce and bun was tucked away in her stomach.
Check out exactly how it went down on our Twitch Channel, or the YouTube embed above.
You can also catch Molly at our upcoming food and music festival Nood Beach this Sunday, September 1st. Tickets are still on sale at Nood-Beach.com, or you can catch her try to tackle a 20-pound bowl of ramen live on Twitch.
There was a summer where I ate about 30 pieces of shrimp over the course of a barbecue. While 12-year-old Pete was pretty proud of this accomplishment, 30 shrimp become dwarfed when compared to a legendary professional eater such as Molly Schuyler.
In a recent live stream event held at the San Pedro Fish Market Grille in Rolling Hills, CA, Schuyler managed to devour more than 600 shrimp in a single sitting.
The feat was broadcast live on Twitch in honor of National Shrimp Day last week. Schuyler was given an hour to see exactly how many shrimp she could handle from the viral seafood restaurant chain.
With about a minute to spare, she was able to knock out exactly 642 pieces of shrimp as she cleared two platters filled to the brim. We won’t know for sure how many more she would have bested in that final minute had there been more shrimp on the table, but her entry in the shrimp-eating book of records is a legendary one.
Schuyler, a seasoned professional, is no stranger to vast quantities of food. In another recent live stream, she crushed 360 chicken nuggets from Burger King in a single session — the equivalent of 11.5 pounds, dipping sauce not included.
With National Shrimp Day coming on May 10th, top-ranked female competitive eater Molly Schuyler is raising the stakes high on her latest challenge.
Fresh off of a 360-nugget eating feat on the Foodbeast Challenger League, Schuyler is going to attempt to eat at least 500 shrimp from San Pedro Fish Market. The viral seafood emporium regularly hosts a similar eating challenge, and the current world record there stands at 7 pounds, which Joey Chestnut downed in 2018.
If Schuyler makes it to 500 shrimp, she’ll easily blow by that record. Schuyler will be eating large shrimp, which total somewhere between 31-37 total per pound. At most, she’ll need to eat 260 shrimp to beat Chestnut’s record. Though it should be mentioned that Chestnut set his record in about 7 minutes and Schuyler won’t really be timed for hers. Perhaps she’ll attempt to surpass him in those first few minutes and take her time afterwards.
San Pedro’s isn’t the only shrimp challenge out there with a world record, as Chestnut has also eaten 18 pounds of shrimp cocktail in an astonishing 8 minutes. Although there’s no cocktail sauce here, if Schuyler takes out an astounding 667 shrimp, she can blow by that mark too.
Considering that those 350 nuggets were light work, seeing Schuyler go for either of these records should be a spectacle to be behold.
You can tune in to Foodbeast’s Twitch channel on May 10th at 3:00 PM PST to witness Schuyler’s record-breaking attempt. San Pedro will also be giving away a few of their world famous shrimp trays to Foodbeast Twitch followers. To win, all you have to do is enter in the embed above by following Foodbeast on Twitch.
How many chicken nuggets could you crush in one sitting? For me, that number stands at 40 nuggets in a single go. (We don’t talk about that night.)
Competitive eater Molly Schuyler, though, just blew everyone else’s personal records out of the water. During a Twitch livestream of the Foodbeast Challenger League, the world’s top-ranked female eater cruised her way through 360 Burger King nuggets in a single sitting. That’s 11.5 pounds of fried chicken, or 15,300 calories, for those counting.
For context, the previous mark using the same chain’s nuggets we could find was set by Darron Eats on YouTube, who ate 300 in roughly 50 minutes. Schuyler ate 60 more than he did, finishing in 1 hour, 14 minutes, and 33 seconds.
Schuyler was honestly unfazed by the amount of nuggets, and probably could have eaten a lot more. The tougher obstacle was the texture of the nuggets, which got hard fast once they went cold. A combination of dunking them in water and drowning them in ketchup helped her grind through all 360 nuggets. Had they all stayed warm, it’s anybody’s guess as to how many more she could have taken down.
This wasn’t the only eating feat set on the Twitch livestream. During it, competitive eater “Killer” Dan Kennedy muscled his way through a whopping 54 Winchell’s Donuts, while Naader “FreakEating” Reda downed 100 Mother’s Cookies with a gallon of milk.
Molly Schuyler is quickly becoming one of the most interesting competitive eaters, in the past crushing 72 ounces of Texas steak, 7 pound burritos, and even 26 Big Macs in one sitting.
While all those are impressive, she went off the rails in celebration of her 50,000 YouTube subscribers. To celebrate, she tried to consume over 50,000 calories, and decided the easiest way to do that was with canola oil, as Schuyler admitted she “always wanted to see how bad it was.”
That curiosity lead to Schuyler chugging two whole gallons of cooking oil, which equaled 66,560 total calories.
As she prepped her 11 giant cups full of oil, you couldn’t help but think about how unhealthy this was. Schuyler said she did not consult a physician before trying this, but does get physicals every 3-6 months, and gets blood work done if something feels wrong.
“I also advise NOBODY to do that,” Schuyler said. “It was disgusting… I was about to hurl.”
She got through every ounce, though, in just 1 minute and 6 seconds.
As of this writing, Molly is sitting on 54,000 subscribers, and we can only imagine what she’ll do when she hits 100,000.
You assumedly eat like everyone else. You do, say, three full meals a day, maybe five smaller snack-meals, and your stomach appreciates your considerate attitude of moderation. But not everyone is like us, peacefully dining at a leisurely pace, savoring flavor profiles and offering conversation. Instead, there are those out in the world who eat like gods and goddesses, consuming calories at a baffling rate.
They’re competitive eaters and each of them apparently have a stomach akin to a seemingly bottomless stash of space to fill with food. They see those insane gimmicky food challenges at restaurants as training exercises, while people like us scoff at the sign and ask our fellow diners who could ever possibly do that. Well, the people on this list can.
Competitive eaters scarf down your summer quota of hot dogs in just minutes and we can’t stop being blown away by their abilities. Let us celebrate those who could vanquish a buffet if they so desired. Here a few competitive eaters that chow down on more food than we could ever dream of doing!
Pete “Furious Pete” Czerwinski has beaten an eating disorder as well as cancer (twice), so he comes with quite the rep. He’s also gained millions of YouTube subscribers that have watched him consume large amounts of, well, anything. He’s on video downing absurd amounts of whatever, from four sticks of butter to seven pounds of pulled pork.
Among her plentiful and very impressive competitive eating victories, Miki Sudo has most notably placed 1st in the women’s category of Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017— downing 41 hot dogs the last time. The fact that her accomplishments are a laundry list of eating conquests should cement her place on this list. In one of Sudo’s own YouTube clips, we see her put down an 8 lb burger challenge with casual finesse.
Crazy Legs Conti
Crazy Legs Conti has done everything from eat his way out of a “popcorn sarcophagus” to winning the Big Easy Eat-Off with 168 oysters on the half shell to 3.5 pounds of sourdough pancakes and six pieces of bacon for the Hibernation Cup. There’s even a documentary about the guy, Crazy Legs Conti: Zen and the Art of Competitive Eating. Until you see that, though, check out this video about the food machine from Great Big Story.
Given that he’s the defending champion of the Tour de Donut bicycle races, in multiple states no less, Yasir Salem should have your attention. He’s the “World’s #1 Speed Eater Ultra-Athlete,” meaning the man can eat 47 ears of corn in 12 minutes as well as compete in marathons and Ironman competitions. To get inside the beastly eater’s mentality and approach, watch this video from Barcroft TV.
Hall “Hoover” Hunt is a member of MENSA and can chow down 23 grilled cheese sandwiches in ten minutes. The dude has a civil engineering background and he comes at competitive eating with an academic mindset. It pays off, clearly. Thankfully, you can scope him out in full glory putting away sweet corn like nobody’s business, thanks to this video from Major League Eating.
In 2016, Molly Schulyer set the record at the annual Hwy 55 World Hamburger Eating Competition. In 2017, she beat her own record by downing seven stacked Hwy 55 burgers, a side of fries, and a 20 oz. drink, all in one minute and 37 seconds. To clarify, this is the #1 Female Independent Competitive Eater in the World that we’re talking about. She holds a staggering number of records across the country and shows no signs of slowing down. YouTuber Derek Farley has a video of Schuyler devouring a meal in a competition like she was a robot programmed for it.
It’s impossible to talk about Takeru Kobayashi without noting that he changed Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest in 2001 — and arguably all of competitive eating. Before that year, the record was 25 hot dogs and a bite or two into the 26th. Then, Kobayashi arrived and the record was suddenly 50. The Oregonian has a video of the dude waging war on two pizzas in two minutes before a PSU football game. Legend status, really.
Carmen Cincotti has an unbelievable résumé. He can eat 49 cheeseburgers in ten minutes, two gallons of chili in six minutes, and 170 peeps in five minutes. He’s currently the #2 competitive eater in the world and his YouTube channel is definitive proof why.
At the 2017 Wing Bowl in Philadelphia, Bob “Notorious B.O.B.” Shoudt went insane — on finger-licking finger foods. Seriously, the man scarfed down 409 chicken wings like a boss. Wilder still, Shoudt is the oldest contestant to win the deal in its 25 years of existence.
The way people speak of Eric “Badlands” Booker,” you’d think he was a one-man burrito hit squad. Although he rages in all kinds of eating competitions, it’s his ability to do things like consume 15 burritos in eight minutes that make people think he’s not mortal. And then doing things like scarfing a five-pound “Burritozilla” at a challenge in San Jose’s Iguanas restaurant only furthers the legend. In fact, YouTuber Cameron McKirdy has a video of it, for skeptics and curious ones alike.
Even though she’s relatively new to the sport, Raina Huang can absolutely dominate. Huang proved as much when she oolly breezed through the In-N-Out 50×50 Challenge, which consists of an In-N-Out burger boasting 50 beef patties. Watch her dominate and set a new world record in Foodbeast’s YouTube video of the momentous occasion. A few weeks before that, she won the Pabst Blue Ribbon Pizza Eating Challenge at Oozefest with 16 slices in 10 minutes. Huang keeps her body fit and ready for food with lots of cardio exercises and a drinking a gallon of water every single day in less than five minutes.
Molly Schuyler is 5 feet 7 inches tall and 120 pounds, but can eat a 72-ounce steak in less than three minutes. Schuyler is a competitive eater and taking a look at her videos, she can eat the hell out of anything, and fast.
She describes herself as just a girl from Nebraska, but you can’t eat crazy amounts of food and stay under the radar for too long. Molly is the very definition of a Foodbeast and puts restaurant challenges to shame. Whether it’s downing a 7-pound burrito, or the “Spiciest burrito in the world,” Molly has documented her food challenge journey throughout the years. Even her humble beginnings where she ate five Milky Ways is pretty impressive, considering it was washed down with a half gallon of egg nog.
These videos are not for the faint of heart. Her ability to devour food like a vacuum cleaner is nothing short of amazing. Watch your back, Joey Chestnut.
