YouTube competitive eater conquers Butcher Shop's burger challenge

LONGVIEW -- An American competitive eater recently became the first person to complete The Butcher Shop’s Betcha Cain’t Burger Challenge, which features about 8 pounds of food from the 38-year-old Longview burger joint.

Bob Shoudt, known as “Notorious B.O.B.,” recently completed the Butcher Shop challenge and posted a video Tuesday of the feat to his YouTube page. He was the first person to complete the challenge, which Butcher Shop launched about eight months ago, according to General Manager Lamar Richardson.

“We’ve had probably at least eight people attempt it, especially when it first got going,” Richardson said. “But nobody’s been able to conquer it until now.”

The Betcha Cain’t Burger Challenge dares individuals to eat a burger made with a 5-pound ground beef patty, topped with a half-pound of melted shredded cheddar cheese on a giant sourdough bun with 2 pounds of fries served on the side. Patrons have 30 minutes to complete the challenge. Those who complete the challenge don’t have to pay for the meal, and they receive a Butcher Shop gift card and T-shirt.

1. That's disgusting!

First of all, who needs to eat that much food in 30 minutes?

Next, it's a totally unhealthy mix of foods.

The human body isn't designed to process that kind of gluttony.

In a country with so much hunger, how is the morally responsible?

I get it, it's an advertising campaign directed at certain men who find this amusing. This is fun? Meh. Texas.

Five pounds of ground meat could make 20-25 hamburgers. Gross.

The article doesn't give the cost of the "meal" (other than free, if you you finish it in time). A related website prices the plate at $54.95 and the joint's Facebook page has their menu listing a "normal" cheeseburger at $7.95 with a side of fries for $2.25.

There are similar "food challenges" even at higher-end restaurants. A steakhouse chain named for a famous football coach has an offer that if you eat an entire 48-ounce steak, they'll put a brass plaque with your name on it on the wall of the restaurant. There's apparently a fellow who has 11 plaques throughout the place.

Food is beautiful and necessary. This kind of behavior is revolting to me. But, to each their own.

3. The local constable's office had a taco eating contest at their July 4th picnic

The constable fainted while watching it

It's a pretty gross fund raiser.
