Listing Types : Eating Competitions
Challenge Type : Capacity Challenge / Speed Challenge
Location : National
Prizes on offer : There will be three prizes for each of the two categories. A professional category (all ranked eaters) and an Amateur category (all others). 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners from each category will receive 60%, 30% and 10% of the remaining prize pool (after costs e.g. patches, Paypal fees, etc.). Those eaters who eat 20 hamburgers in one sitting will win a exclusive rare embroidered patch.
Rules (if applicable) : Eaters are to eat 20 burgers as quickly as possible. Eaters must have a visible timer in the video at all times showing the time pass. Burgers must not be customised or modified (i.e. no removing pickles, etc.) The first burger may be unwrapped before the timer starts. All other burgers must be wrapped at the start of the competition, and burgers must be unwrapped individually only after the previous burger has been eaten or placed completely into the mouth. Dunking in water or any other beverage is permitted. Chipmunking at the end of the 60 minutes is permitted. Only whole burgers eaten or in the mouth at the end of the 60 minutes will be counted. All burgers in the mouth at the end of the 60 minutes must be swallowed (can be after the timer has elapsed but must be filmed) to be counted towards the eaters total. An open mouth after the last burger has been eaten must be shown in the video for that burger to count towards the final total. The time taken to eat the 20 hamburgers will be determined only once an open mouth is shown to the camera.
How to enter (if applicable) : Follow the "How to Enter" instructions on this page.
The Price : $20

Thanks to all that competed in this year’s $1 McBurger Eating Competition! 20 Hamburgers is harder than it sounds, so a huge thanks to all that entered. We’ve listened to your feedback and next competition we’ll be making some changes to the format so stay tuned!

Our Pro’s had it tough, with Vince coming out with his video on day 1 of the competition setting the bar very high indeed. Only Sven submitted his video, able to beat his time in a very close competition.

In the Amateur category, un-ranked eater Mick “The Machine” Stonier set an unbelievable time which proved unbeatable in his division. Newcomer Daniel “The Tassie Tornado” Rumble set a great time at 39:22, with the last few proving tough. Although we had much chatter in the comments, Michael and Daniel were the only two entrants able to complete the 20 burgers in the 1hr timeframe, showing just how hard this competition is. An honorable mention for Yuan Yeap, who while he didn’t finish 20, was 3rd best tapping out at 18. We’ll be sending him a patch anyway for putting in such a fantastic effort.

NOTE: This competition is not endorsed, sponsored or supported by McDonalds

McDonalds has just announced they’re selling their world renowned Hamburger for just $1 each for a limited time. We figured why not take full advantage of it again! Welcome to the 2nd Annual $1 McBurger Eating Competition!

This year we’d like to see how quickly you can eat 20 of these $1 hamburgers.

Amateur and Pro Categories, each with 1st, 2nd and 3rd cash prizes!

Your $20 entry fee will contribute towards Amateur and Pro prize pools, with winners taking:

1st place – 60% of prize pool
2nd place – 30% of prize pool
3rd place – 10% of prize pool

*NEW* Exclusive Embroidered Logo for those that finish 20 hamburgers in one sitting!

That’s right folks! If you power on and finish them all in less than an hour, we’ll send you a rare, exclusive embroidered patch. If you can eat 20 burgers in one sitting, you deserve to be recognised as a Competitive Eater! This is for both the Amateur and Pro categories. Maximum time allowed is 1 hour.

Please note: You don’t need to finish 20 in 60 to enter the competition. It may be that at the end of 60 minutes you may have finished enough to get a 3rd, 2nd, or even 1st prize! So even if you don’t finish 20 in 60 minutes, make sure you enter because you could still win!

This is a national competition. We’ve listed the McDonalds Swanson Street store, but you can do it in any McDonalds restaurant anywhere in Australia. All you need to do is film your effort from start to finish, then upload your video online and let us know about it.

There are a number of ways you can submit your video:

  1. Post your video (Facebook Live or an upload) on your Facebook wall and tag our Facebook page in your post (@CompEating)
  2. Post your video to Youtube, Vimeo, or any other video hosting service and link to our web site (
  3. Direct Facebook message us your video

You MUST have a timer, clock, smart phone or device that displays a timer in the shot for the entirety of the video. The first 30 seconds of the video must be shown at normal speed. The rest of the video can be edited and sped up to a maximum of 16x, slowing down to normal speed in the last 30 seconds. You can submit an edited video for your entry, however you must retain the original, unedited video for us to review should that be required. Anyone who enters and cannot supply that original video when requested will be disqualified from the competition. This includes those going over the 20 minutes attempting to get their embroidered patch.

Entries will be accepted up to 5pm Friday 30 November, or when the offer ends, whichever is soonest. So don’t delay, we don’t know how long these $1 burgers are going to last!
