MILWAUKEE, Wisc. (WFLA/CNN) — When Molly Schuyler sat down to eat Monday night at Ward’s House of Prime in Milwaukee, nobody imagined what they were about to witness.
Schuyler travels the country as a competitive eater. She put away 22.5 pounds of prime beef at the restaurant, downing one slab of meat after another.
Schuyler said she was feeling “very sluggish and tired” after her marathon of munching.
A WISN-TV reporter asked her why she chose to be a competitive eater.
“Why not?” she said. “I’m always looking for something new and maybe something absolutely delicious I haven’t had for a long time or something that could challenge me because I can eat well over 20 pounds.”
The restaurant invited Schuyler to take the challenge. Owner Brian Ward said she nearly doubled the previous record.
Schuyler also recently broke a hamburger-eating challenge record. Click here to watch her take on a 7-decker cheeseburger, fries, and a drink.
