Christmas is a time to spend with family, a time for gift-giving, and for many, a time to indulge a little. The holiday feast is often prepared with so many favorites, it’s hard to choose.
A far tougher challenge would be to order one of everything from the menu of your favorite restaurant. That’s exactly what Jamie McDonald did as he sat down to all 11 items on Denny’s Hobbit-themed menu. McDonald, a 36-year-old competitive eater, nicknamed “The Bear” polished off all eleven dishes, a whopping 8610 calories, in just under 20 minutes.
Dishes included the Shire Sausage Skillet, Frodo’s Pot Roast, Gandalf’s Gobble Melt and Dwarves’ Turkey & Dressing Dinner.
McDonald gained attention in October by winning the first Annual Ghost Pepper Burrito Eating Contest in Toronto by consuming burritos laced with the second hottest pepper in the world known as the Ghost Pepper.
