Could You Conquer This 72oz Steak Challenge Located in Amarillo, Texas?
Food challenges are just something to bear witness to sometimes. We've all seen one on TV, or in person. For example, a restaurant known as Mugshots does an insane challenge like this.
At one point in my life, I saw three people do that challenge in one week. I didn't want to look at a burger for maybe a week but I digress.
In Amarillo, Texas, the Big Texan Steak Ranch has a challenge that absolutely puts the Mugshots to shame. It's described here, and just looking at it makes me feel full.
A 72oz steak, baked potato, shrimp cocktail, salad, and a roll. You've got one hour to finish it all, or you pay $72 and have possibly an upset stomach to go home with.
How could anyone do this without...getting sick?
It's a thought that some may have had the second this contest was mentioned. And yet, there is indeed a video of someone taking it on. Meet Katina Eats Kilos.
This isn't the first food rodeo, so let's go step by step here as she possibly completes this massive undertaking.
First let's look at the eatery itself
Well it's very yellow, that's for sure. Wait can we get close up on the cow?
Well he certainly is big isn't he?
Enough of the outside, let's get a look at the interior:
Very Texan, the only way it could be perfect is if workers wore cowboy hats right?
Ok, here we go everyone, it's time to see the food and our contestant
Ok looking at this now is making my stomach a little bit upset. That's a lot of food. And Katina's only got an hour to finish it. There's a timer for us to watch along too, so we'll check on how she's doing every minutes.
How are things looking at 5 minutes?
Not trying to be rude here, but it doesn't look like at this point she's even made a dent in the steak. It's 72 oz though, and she's got an hour, so I could absolutely be misjudging how much she's eaten at this point.
10 minute check!
Alright! Looks like she's making a dent in this steak! Looks like my eyes were deceiving me.
15 minutes have passed now!
I think that steak is almost 75% gone. Wow, and 45 minutes to go too. Things are looking up for sure.
20 minutes elapsed!
Ok looks like we're cutting up the last main part of the steak. but eating most the 72oz monster in about 20 minutes is an impressive feat in itself.
25 minutes into the challenge
That steak looks so close to being completely eaten. Yet she hasn't touched the other items. Still have 35 minutes, so we're ok if she slows down a little bit.
30 minutes! Halfway point!
The salad and the steak have been mixed. Smart move to save time. And that steak is all but gone. I don't know about everybody's thoughts, but I think she's going to finish this thing!
35 minutes into the contest!
Steak is gone, salad is gone. Just the baked potato and roll, and she'll have defeated this challenge with a ton of spare time!
40 minutes have passed
SHE'S SO CLOSE! She can finish this!!!
35 seconds later...
VICTORY! She beat that challenge with 20 minutes to spare. Wow! What does she get for winning???
To the victor the spoils!
Free food, a shirt, a cup, and a certificate. Pretty good all round I think. If you want to see the whole challenge in semi-real time, it's right here for your viewing pleasure.
