Woman bests ‘Big Texan’ 72 oz. steak challenge TWICE in 20 minutes
AMARILLO, Tex. — The rules: complete a mammoth meal consisting of a shrimp cocktail, baked potato, salad, roll, butter and a 72 oz. steak in one hour. Lose, pay $72 for the meal; win, get commemorated in The Big Texan’s Hall of Fame.
But for Nebraska woman Molly Schuyler, a place in the record books wasn’t enough and one meal wasn’t enough either. Schuyler complete her first ‘Big Texan’ challenge in four minutes and fifty-eight seconds, a new record for the restaurant.
When it came time for seconds, it took her an exhausting nine minutes and fifty-nine seconds. According to KAMR, that’s more than nine pounds of food ingested in less time than it takes to watch a sitcom. The Big Texan’s pitmaster told KAMR that she’s established a new standard.
“She done set the bar for everybody. If you can’t eat two then you’ve done nothing, you know what I’m saying,” Tony Love told KAMR.
Schuyler actually says in the YouTube’s video description that having the steak butterflied was a disadvantage, so that won’t happen the next time when she tries to best THREE challenges in less than an hour.
