Big Texan Steak Challenge Record Smashed

- AMARILLO --  The Big Texan's record for the 72 ounce steak challenge is smashed tonight.

    Professional eating competitor Molly Schuyler, of Bellevue, Nebraska, downed the 72 ounce steak dinner in just under five minutes.

    After finishing the first dinner in record time, 4:48, she scarfed-down a second one in under ten minutes, 9:59.

    That's more than 9lbs of food ingested in a little less than 15 minutes.

    Big Texan pit master Tony Love says he's never seen anything like it.  "She done set the bar high for everybody so there's not a male that comes in the door that laughs yeah that's a challenge to all the males you know what I'm saying?  If you can't eat two then youve done nothing you know what i'm saying?"

    The 34-year old mother says she could've taken-down a third steak dinner and may do so in a future competition.

    Schuyler has competed in many eating competitions, setting records for eating contests that include pizza, hamburgers, burritos and other food items.
