If you pay any attention at all to the world of Competitive Eating, you may already know the name Molly Schuyler. If not, prepare to be wowed.
The majority of women I’ve ever met tend to take it easy and try not to eat too much in one go. Schuyler, however, is on the complete opposite end of the spectrum. To see her in all her 5’5″, 120 pound glory, you wouldn’t realize the crazy ability that she has to eat and eat and eat… Unless you see her eating, of course.
She holds a number of titles, but I’m going to focus on her most recent victories… Early this year, she destroyed 72-ounce (4.5 pound) steak eating world record, putting one away in 2 minutes 44 seconds at Sayler’s Old Country Kitchen in Portland, Oregon. The previous record was 6:38.

Molly also won Wing Bowl 22 in Philadelphia on Friday, January 31st of this year. Not surprisingly she also set a record with this victory, eating 363 wings in 30 minutes. The previous record was 337. Adding to the challenge was the fact that the Wing Bowl kicked off at 8 AM. I’ve never tried to eat wings that early, but I couldn’t imagine eating that much of anything at such a time.
Following the Wing Bowl, the very next day (Saturday, February 1st), she won the IHOP Pancake Bowl AND the bacon-eating contest at the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival in Des Moines, Iowa. To win the bacon-eating contest, she downed 5 pounds in 3 minutes! She made a weekend of it by completing the Adam Emmenecker Challenge on Sunday, Feb. 2nd at Jethro’s BBQ.

Recently, Molly made history by completing the Big Texan Steak Ranch‘s famous steak dinner challenge. Twice. In 15 minutes.
The Big Texan Steak Ranch has a famous steak dinner challenge that requires you to eat the entire dinner deal in order to get the meal for free.
The dinner deal, which aside from the 72-oz steak, includes a shrimp cocktail, baked potato, salad and a roll, was previously consumed the fastest in 8 minutes and 52 seconds by famed competitive eater Joey Chestnut.
Schuyler hoovered the entire meal in 4 minutes and 58 seconds — but wait, there’s more. Believe it or not, she ate not one, but two of these entire steak dinner deals in less than fifteen minutes!
Just to clarify, that’s two 72-oz steaks, two shrimp cocktails, two baked potatoes, two salads and two dinner rolls in less than 15 minutes. Feel like throwing up yet? Schuyler certainly didn’t. She seemed perfectly at ease plowing through the steak dinners, even commenting to one skeptical onlooker that, “you don’t know me,” as she tossed the last piece of a dinner roll into her mouth, laughing.
“We witnessed history,” the restaurant’s co-owner told the Amarillo Globe-News. “If there’s a zombie apocalypse, I want to stay away from this girl.”
A shocking 45 minutes was still left on the clock for her to be able to finish the first steak dinner, but she seemed to have no problem consuming both in record time, earning both meals for free. Must make for cheap date nights with her husband!
I don’t know whether to be turned on or grossed out… But one thing is for sure, she’s got a gluttonous gift!
