Molly Schuyler has almost single-handedly shattered the competitive-eating glass ceiling. She's devoured steaks in three minutes, taken out Joey Chestnut, and generally done a lot to convince the world that gross feats of consumption aren't just for boys. This weekend, she accomplished a new personal best when she annihilated three 72oz steaks in only 20 minutes.
As Time explains, Schuyler actually beat The Big Texan's eating challenge thrice over this Sunday. The restaurant offers a free meal to anyone who can eat one of their 72oz steaks, a baked potato, a salad, and a shrimp cocktail in less than an hour. Schuyler had set their most recent record in 2014 when she finished the spread in four minutes and 58 seconds, but she blew past her old time on round one, when she cleaned her plate in four minutes and 18 seconds. Not content to stop there, she ordered another steak meal, and then another, completing all three in 20 minutes flat. She received this sweet novelty check for her troubles, along with our undying admiration and fear. See her in action via the Ustream below:
Kristin Hunt is a Food/Drink staff writer for Thrillist, and could maybe eat one of those steaks in 20 minutes. Follow her to slow-eating competitions at @kristin_hunt.
