U.S. man takes big bite at record: 30k Big Macs

08 May 2018

Don Gorske ate his first Big Mac in 1972 at a McDonald's in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin and returned there on Friday to eat his 30,000 Big Mac, breaking his own world record.

Somewhat miraculously, Gorske says his cholesterol and blood pressure are normal despite having eaten at least one of the 540-calorie fast food burgers nearly every day for the past four decades. He showed off his record books and how he keeps track of thousands of receipts, sandwich wrappers and containers. At Don's last checkup both his cholesterol and blood pressure were just fine.

For those who ever played the McDonald's Monopoly game, you might be distressed to hear Gorske has kept about 6,000 boxes from Big Macs, many of them in pristine condition.

Over the years, he's preserved and categorised everything related to his Big Mac obsession but in June 1990, a tornado blew the eaves off his house and 7,000 Styrofoam cartons were damaged.

WBAY-TV reports that 64-year-old Don Gorske of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin recorded the milestone at a local McDonald's on Friday (Saturday NZT).

Gorske, tall and lanky, has a meticulous memory and a penchant for details. It was 140. In 2006 he crossed the finish line of the San Diego marathon carrying his 21,387th Big Mac. He also appeared in the movie Supersize Me.

But it's an absurd number of Big Macs. The first day missed was the hardest, Gorske said, and that was in 1982, when he drove in a snowstorm to get his sandwich, and the restaurant was closed.

He says that he eats two a day. That day was April 27, 1988. Gorske said he plans on keeping his routine going for another 14 years to get to 40,000 Big Macs eaten.

"Maybe I'll be eating it when I catch myself on the news", he said and smiled.
