Devouring tons of food for bragging rights may not seem worth it to some people, but there are others who live for the challenge! Restaurants that conduct these challenges offer winners rewards like cash, prizes, or the chance to have their name and photo up on the wall of fame, making the challenge all the more exciting.
Here’s a look at 10 of the most insane food challenges. Do you think you have it in you to win one of these?
8th Wonder Challenge
Weighing a whopping 105 points, the 8th Wonder burger, which is sold at Clinton Station Diner in Clinton, N.J., is enormous. It’s 11.5 inches tall and 28 inches wide in diameter. The challenge requires a maximum of 10 people to demolish the gigantic burger in under 60 minutes (which means each person will have to eat around 10.5 pounds of food in an hour). Successful teams are given a cash prize of $5,000. However, no one has ever won this challenge, which means the odds of winning are stacked against those who enter.
