Hmmm ... If *in fact* you already know you can do it, would it make sense to bet against you?



In my mind most people do nonsensical things with their money.

It would knowing that he hasn't even attempted 100 yet. I would take the hard no on him even coming close to eating 200, and yes I would put money up. Not only is the volume disgusting but the grease and taste are actually the much tougher part of the whole thing.

Practiced steadily for most of July. Then took about four weeks off. I do think the plan outlined originally is the best possible way to have a chance at eating 200 McNuggets. But it does require a large time commitment to eat a full meal at a buffet. One to two hours of eating, then a long time digesting. Changed to just drinking as much water as I can when I come home after being out of the house for 12 to 13 hours. Typically manage about three Liters in three minutes, then a five minute break, then another 1.5 Liters. Today was the first time doing that much without any vomit (just a lot of pee). It's definitely less specific than eating. Like a marathon runner running only one mile a day. But if he runs at close to an all out sprint up hill it could still have benefits.

Not nearly close to what some people are doing on youtube. Shows two gallons in 80 seconds. How does this sort of video only have 139 views?: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=do-LJQ6wBbI

Care is required when consuming large quantities of water in a short period of time. It is possible to "drown" by drinking too much water. Google "Hyponatremia" which is the dilution of the salt in the blood to a dangerously low level.

I think the entire challenge has just changed. I wouldn't know if it makes it easier or harder. McDonalds announced they are now using real chicken in the recipe. All natural.... No added grease.....

What care would you recommend?

"Hypo" generally refers to low, so never thought much of it, but it does make sense that it could throw off electrolytes. Over five Liters the past two tries (in about 10 minutes) and only negative side effects have been vomit and pee. Mind boggling to see how some guys on youtube are able to drink eight to 12 Liters in a small fraction of the time.

Wizard has offered a tentative date of 25 September, which I am close to making a final acceptance on. He has made a small offer on 125. Though it comes with a very likely loss for him, hopefully it will lead to a good video and be an interesting topic for wizardofvegas.

I am probably a better eater than hustler, but am willing to take action on up to 200 McNuggets.
if you want under 100, I'll lay three to one (you would get +300)
under 125, I'll lay two to one. (+200)
under 133, I'll lay three to two (+150)
under 150, I'll give even money (+100)
under 167 I'll take three to two (-150)
under 175, I'll take five to two (-250)
under 200 I'll take eight to one (-800)

Tomg, I know it was asked before I don't recall an answer. Have you done competitive eating in the past?

For the betting. Say I take under 125 and you vomit at 198, do I win or lose? Does a reversal of fortune make all lines a win or is a win for you once you cross the barrier?

I want to bet this so bad but something in my gut says that I would be the sucker.
