Miguel eats the Thurmanator Burger

On Monday evening I got a call from my friend Miguel in Columbus. He was in the middle of a challenge he saw on the TV show Man vs. Food. The challenge: finish the Thurmanator Burger.

The Thurmanator is 1 1/2 lbs of beef, a 1/2 pound of ham and bacon, and all other toppings. It is required that you eat the fries as well.

Miguel and 5 coworkers set about the competition, and most did not finish. Miguel finished his burger and fries in a record 13 minutes. The next closest competitor came in at 56 minutes.

I don't know why I felt compelled to share this, but I did. And I feel disgusted.

lol! Holy cow, I have to show this to Gary. Every few years he and his friends have a "Monster Burger" challenge. Usually a 3-5 lb burger with lots of fixings. I thought that was huge and disgusting, but it pales in comparison to this!

OMG! My husband loves that show and ever since he saw that episode with the Thurminator, he has wanted to get up there and try his hand at the challenge. It is totally gross to think about though. Kinda makes me not want to eat for a while! :)
