Woman eats 12-pound sandwich, pound of fries - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

120-pound mom of four devours 12-pound sandwich in eating contest

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

One of the world's top-ranked female competitive eaters came to Portland on Thursday and put her eating skills on display at the Mad Greek Deli on East Burnside.

Molly Schuyler became the third person ever to complete the Mad Greek Deli Challenge, and she's no stranger to the sport of competitive eating. Three weeks ago, she uploaded a video of her downing nine pounds of cottage cheese in less than two minutes.

"(It's) an unexplained phenomenon; I was just born that way. I started doing this about a year ago, and I guess it's like a stupid human trick," Schuyler said.

As a child, Schuyler remembers going all out at the buffet with her siblings.

"We did that so much as kids, we kind of battled it out," she said. "We've always ate big."

On Thursday night at the Mad Greek Deli, Schuyler gulped down one of her biggest meals yet: an enormous 12-pound sandwich, a pound of fries and a large soda.

With five minutes left on the clock, she took her final bite and finished off the 12-pound sandwich. It took her 54 minutes, and she became the fastest - and only - woman to eat the giant sandwich.

Schuyler was given $650 for her efforts.

She said she'll use the money to pay for a trip home to Omaha, NE.
