Molly Schuyler Eats 72oz Steak In Less Than 3 Minutes (VIDEO)

She might weigh only 120 pounds, but all of that is pure eating machine.

Molly Schuyler, a competitive eater and mother of four from Nebraska, may have set a world record last Friday when she absolutely devoured a 72 oz. steak in less than 3 minutes.

According to Gawker, the previous Guinness World Record for consuming a 72 oz. steak was 6 minutes and 48 seconds.

Schuyler, who also downed a 12-pound sandwich during her recent tour of the Pacific Northwest, told KPTV that she's only been into professional competitive eating for the past year, but she does have fond memories of "battling it out" with her siblings at the buffet when they were kids.


"[It's] an unexplained phenomenon; I was just born that way," Schuyler told the station. "I guess it's like a stupid human trick."

She's also got a thing for mushrooms, as HuffPost's Joe Satran learned the hard way.
