We all appreciate the weird part of a Guinness World Record, and yes, this newest recorded stunt appears to be topping the list, especially as it involves FOOD. 67-Year-Old Donald Gorske now holds the title for eating more McDonald’s Big Macs than anyone else. The Wisconsin-based isn’t done yet as he continues to break his record every single day.
Just as we already did, you may as well call Donald Gorske “The Lord of Big Macs.”
Guinness World RecordsIn 1999, Gorske had won the title for ‘most Big Mac Burgers eaten in a lifetime.’ Twenty-two years on, his total burger count stands at an enormous 32,3440. Specifically, Gorske started this journey in 1972, where he tasted his first Big Mac and decided right there that he would be eating them for the rest of his life. He was ingesting nine Big Macs a day at his high point but has since averaged to two Big Macs daily.
Gorske's routine involves eating two Big Mac burgers per day, totaling 14 per week.
YouTube/Guinness World Records“I love hamburgers like no other food. I am closing in on 50 years of eating them next year, after eating a Big Mac every single day. This is a McDonald’s Big Mac – it’s the best sandwich in the world! When I like something, I stick with it all the time.” Gorske said in an interview with Guinness World Records.
His fast-food journey began May 17, 1972. During this time, Gorske would eat up to 9 burgers a day.
YouTube/Guinness World RecordsSince deciding to eat Big Macs at age 17, Gorske wasn’t joking about his fast-food lifestyle. He has indeed kept every single container and receipt since that day. He even kept his paperwork in boxes and pouches in order of year while marking a daily calendar to keep everything in check. It turned out, Gorske’s relationships have equally circled his Macs obsession.
It turned out Big Macs played a role in Donald’s relationships! When he was dating his now-wife Mary, she would sometimes bring him a Big Mac as a surprise.
YouTube/Guinness World Records“Don Gorske didn’t tell me about his Big Mac obsession when we first met; I’m not sure it was quite an obsession then; he ate Big Macs every day. Sometimes I would bring him a Big Mac; I didn’t realize it would go on forever.” Gorske’s wife Mary stated.
To stay healthy, Gorske skips out on the french fries and walks about six miles per day.
