i find it rather sad that everyone seems to find something wrong with this.
obviously, the two steaks in fifteen minutes is a bit over the top, but, if she can do it, more power to her.
i wasn't aware that there was a contest for it. in most places, it is simply, if you can eat the 72 ounce steak dinner, you get it for free. if you aren't able to, it would be advisable to not try, since it costs a whole bunch. settle for the measly four ounce tidbit instead

the only time that i've actually competed was a pie eating contest ten years ago. it was being the fastest at eating a marie callender cherry pie. i won, by a wide margin. the runner up had only eaten half of his when i was finished.

the ONLY ill that i suffered was the fact that it was three years before i ate another cherry, since i couldn't stay off the stool for three days

she did it properly at least. you always get the most down as soon as possible, so you can pretty much take your time with the rest.

back when i would drink a six pack in ten minutes, never for less than twenty bucks, of course, i'd drink the first four in five minutes. that made the last two in five minutes much easier.

There are lots of contests that involve fruits and vegetables.

And there are those that involve butter, mayonnaise, brains, haggis, kimchi , tiramisu, Maidrites and Spam.

I don't understand why any sane person would eat 53 Taco Bell tacos in 10 minutes

They have no official contest for that 72oz meal, but they do keep the stats for the meal. She has set the record for the fastest time ever to complete the full meal, but she is a competitive eater so a fast time to finish was a given.

She did a second full meal and finished both of them by the 15 minute mark which is a new record for sure. How many completed two meals in under one hour, I do not know.

I would say though if she had that third meal in front of her she would have finished that one off as well before the hour was up.

This is kinda like the belching contests we had when I was in the Army. Loads of fun!

And rather useless to a degree, but fun anyways.

Really? It's profoundly sad that not everyone thinks this is morally just w-r-o-n-g.

For contestants of gluttony to be cheered by the masses in today's world is unbelievable to me. History certainly hasn't taught some very much.

Agreed. I'm put off by poor table manners, let alone stuffing a couple of days worth of food in one's mouth for entertainment purposes. Yuck.
