Tendermaid eating challenge shattered; California woman eats 13 more burgers than the original record

After consuming 30 burgers, 80 ounces of water, a bag of chips, a malt and thousands of calories, Molly Schuyler sat nonchalantly inside of Tendermaid Thursday afternoon.

Schuyler of California surpassed the Tendermaid challenge record by 13 burgers in 26 minutes, though she claimed to still have more room to eat.

“I should’ve kept eating more,” she said.

Owners Sara and Gary White were not expecting the challenge to be broken by so much — and by someone so relaxed.

“It’s mind-blowing,” Sara said. “She was so casual and laid-back.”

Three minutes into the challenge, however, they knew they had a new record holder in the building. Schuyler chowed down nine burgers in three minutes.

“I’m absolutely amazed,” Gary said.

Schuyler is no stranger to food eating competitions. She has competed more than 300 times in both small and large scale challenges and is currently the number one ranked female independent competitive eater in the world, according to her official Facebook page. She has also appeared on TV shows like “Tosh.0” and “To Tell the Truth.”

While some may think she’d eat a little lighter after topping the Tendermaid challenge, Schuyler planned to take on another eating competition in Nebraska on Friday.

“I’m doing another challenge tomorrow,” she said with a grin on Thursday.
