At first glance, there's nothing too extraordinary about Don Gorske's appearance.
In fact, even if you saw him in the act of maintaining his international Guinness World Record, you probably wouldn't even know it.
But looks can be deceiving.
Think anyone thought twice when they saw Dr. Jekyll strolling down the street?
No. The truth was veiled until the secret ingredient was consumed.
For Jekyll, it was a scientifically-derived potion which did the trick. For Gorske, it was consuming 30,000 Big Macs.
Consuming. 30 Thousand. Big Macs.
Some time around 2004, he got wind that some people might not believe his tales of gluttonous grandeur.
So he decided to start keeping the receipts.
Of every single Big Mac he ever bought.
Gorske, who has cleverly been nicknamed "The Big Mac Man," first entered the record books back in 2016. It was then that he ate his 28,788th Big Mac:
But it was only recently that the Big Mac Man crossed the threshold into true beast status, when he at his 30,000th McDonald signature sandwich.
Crunching the Numbers
- 30,000 Big Macs AKA:
- 60,000 all beef patties
- A whole lotta special sauce
- 60,000 slices of American cheese
- 90,000 slices of sesame seed buns
- 60,000 pickles
- Probably around 3,000 onions
- Over a 1,000 heads of lettuce
When it comes to his health, Gorske isn't worried:
“At my last medical check-up I had low cholesterol and my blood pressure was perfect.”
Could it be that Morgan Spurlock of "Supersize Me" fame was just "hamming" it up for audiences?
It could be. But we're pretty sure we don't wanna challenge that one!
Gorske sat down with Fox News to talk about the triumph, taking a moment to elaborate on his health and McDiet:
"...it's not all I eat, but it's most of what I eat. The only other thing that I eat every [other] day as far as food goes is Parfaits."
Check out Gorske's interview with Fox News below:
The Fox News team has received some flack for cutting off Gorske's response to their questions while he was mid-sentence.
Even the guy who has eaten the most Big Macs in history can't get a break!
