Molly Schulyer may look petite at 5-foot-7 and 125 pounds, but don’t be fooled — this mother of four is an absolute eating machine.
Schuyler, who became a viral sensation when she obliterated a 72-ounce steak in a matter of minutes, has now smashed the previous world record for chicken wing eating. At Wing Bowl 22 this weekend, Molly Schuyler downed an incredible 363 wings in a matter of 30 minutes.
The previous chicken wing eating record had been held by Takeru Kobayashi, he of hot dog eating fame, with 337 wings at the same event in 2012.
Molly Schuyler wasn’t the only one to top Kobayashi’s record at the event. Chicago native Patrick Bertoletti also ate 356 wings, keeping Molly on her heels during the competition.
The Nebraska native Schuyler rose to fame earlier this year when she destroyed a meal at Portland’s Sayler’s Old Country Kitchen, eating an entire 72 ounce steak in 2 minutes and 44 seconds. A video of the endeavor uploaded to YouTube showed Schuyler pecking apart at the steak, holding it in her hands like a corn on the cob as she tore off chunks with her teeth.
The previous record for eating a steak at the restaurant, which owners said belonged to a “body building huge man,” was 6 minutes and 48 seconds.
To make Friday’s accomplishment even more incredible, Molly Schuyler had to eat nine pounds of cottage cheese in less than two minutes (actually 114 seconds) to qualify for the chicken wing eating contest. Her world record in the chicken wing event will earn her the competition’s top prize, $22,000.
