I love this show, ESPECIALLY now that I'm on my no-fun diet. I was watching this morning and he was at some place in Atlanta that serves a "double bypass burger". A huge beef patty topped with 3 fried eggs, 4 slices of cheese, 6 slices of bacon. THEN to top it off, NO BUN...instead of two slices of bread the top and bottom of the burger is held together with two grilled cheese sandwiches!! Double bypass indeed. That wasn't even his challenge. His challenge was to finish an 11lb pizza. Crazy.

I saw him try to eat a big pizza with a partner and they failed.

Does this guy ever complete the challenges?

I'm also shocked no one out opf 450 attempts has finished it. I mean, people eat 10 pound hamburgers by themselves, but 2 people can't eat an 11 pound pizza?

11bs of greasy, cheesy pizza would be hard to put down. Plus throw in that there is a shit ton of meat on top.

That was the same episode as the double bypass burger, the featured the burger but his challenge was the pizza. It's from 1/7.

Ever eat at Cow Pattie's in Warsaw, MO? Not sure of the weight, but a very big hamburger. I would estimate at about 12-14" in diameter. I was a big boy (5' 7" 225 #) back then and only put away 1/2 of it.

my boss ate the Speck burger at Seabrook in Topeka years ago. 3# of beef, and a cookie sheet of fries.

The irony is the t-shirt he got wouldn't fit.

Yeah but think of the sheer size of the pizza. That's a lot of food. It may be 11 lbs....but it's 11 lbs spread out. The Dagwood sandwich was how much weight....and it really didn't look that big.

stfu troll.


if you paid any attention, you'd know that many of the people completing these feats are not fat, in fact many have been petite women.
