foodbeast.com – The Catch in Anaheim, California is home to one of the most daunting food challenges out there: The OMG Burger Challenge. For the past 9 years, someone comes in about every two weeks to try and take down this ten-pound burger in an hour. Only one has ever succeeded, but record-holding competitive eater Raina Huang looked to change that with her recent attempt.
That’s because the OMG Burger is a beastly foe, packing a host of ingredients into its heft. It’s got a 5-pound beef patty, 3 whole onions, 4 tomatoes, 5 large pickles, plenty of cheese and dressing, and a heap of lettuce. Oh, and that’s all crammed into a 12-inch bun that’s seemingly more foam pillow than it is bread.
While you don’t have to finish them, there’s also a pickle and mini slider on top to garnish the burger alongside a MASSIVE moat of fries (also optional). Combined, everything weighed just over 16 pounds.
In terms of what’s at stake, not finishing the burger sets you back a solid $80. But winning gets you immortalized in the restaurant’s “OMG Champions” wall of fame and a $500 cash prize, so the reward is well worth the risk here.
The rules are pretty strict, though. Apart from the one-hour time limit, you’re not allowed any bathroom breaks, and the burger can’t be dipped in water or anything else to make it easier. There’s also a waiver that Raina had to sign before attempting the OMG.
Just looking at this makes my stomach hurt…the price also makes my stomach hurt….I can literally taste the diabetes and heart disease, with all that being said…who wants to see one of the JG members take on this behemoth??
