Woman Devours Three 72-Ounce Steaks In 20 Gut-Busting Minutes
Try to remember the hungriest you’ve ever been. Multiply by about a hundred and you still wouldn’t be able to polish off the amount of food this woman did.
Competitive eater Molly Schuyler made history Sunday when she finished three 72-ounce steaks in 20 minutes at the Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo, Texas. That comes out to 216 ounces — or nearly 13 pounds — of meat.
As if that wasn’t filling enough, Schuyler also finished three baked potatoes, three shrimp cocktails, three salads and three rolls.
Schuyler, a mother of four who clocks in at 120 pounds, ate the first steak in 4 minutes, 18 seconds, besting the restaurant’s record that she herself set last year by a whole 40 seconds.

Schuyler was game for a fourth steak, too, but ultimately put the fork down and decided against it because she had grown sick of the taste.
For her efforts, Schuyler went home with $5,000 for finishing the challenge in under an hour, plus another $1,000 for winning a contest against four other teams with two people apiece.
After her performance at the Big Texas, Schuyler took her act to KISS in Amarillo, where she demolished a nine-and-a-half-pound burrito and proved there may not actually be a bottom to her stomach.
