Competitive eater and Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest champion Joey Chestnut put the hot dogs down and decided to tackle the Big Mac world record.
Yesterday, on what he called his “cheat day,” Joey put away 32 Big Macs in 38 minutes. We’re talking 15.36 pounds and 18,016 calories worth of food people.
“I remember being a little kid and they would sell two Big Macs for $4 and me and my grandpa would get four of them. I’d end up eating three. And this is bringing me back to being a kid. Me and my grandpa would go back to the same McDonald’s every time. And it’s crazy, when I drive by that McDonald’s I still kinda just think about it. I think about all the times I was there with my grandpa and it’s weird the way that food takes you back and helps you remember things. With Big Macs, I definitely remember my grandpa.”
