Retired Prison Guard Eats His 30000th Big Mac

Man Eats 30000th Big Mac, Setting New World Record

Don Gorske, 64, has been one of the world's most dedicated Big Mac fans since he first tried the burger 46 years ago.

A Wisconsin man ate his 30,000th Big Mac burger on Friday.

Rause said that Gorske's passion for the Big Mac is exceptional and has been a loyal customer at the Military Road McDonald's for more than four decades.

Gorske also made a promise to his mother who requested that he will not eat Big Mac on the day of her death, so he didn't eat one when she died on April 27, 1988. Gorske says that the only reason that he has achieved this feat is - well - he just really likes burgers. The first time, he drove to McDonald's during a snowstorm and discovered it was closed.

The popular fast-food chain promoted the Big Mac enthusiast's monumental ingestion, held at 3 p.m. under the "golden arches" and attended by McDonald's Fox Valley's franchise owner D.W. Rause.

In October 2017, Gorske set his first world record for the most Big Macs consumed. Before her death, she asked Gorske to skip eating a Big Mac on the day she died, in remembrance of her. He has an impressive collection of receipts, burger wrappers, and containers.

He even has the day when McDonald's switched to shredded lettuce marked down: February 10, 1999.

Don Gorske is tall and thin with a graying ponytail. "At my last medical check-up I had low cholesterol and my blood pressure was flawless". And he doesn't appear to be suffering for his cause: Ellen DeGeneres had his cholesterol checked in 2003 and came up with 140, and he's run a marathon-with Big Mac No. 21,387 in hand. Each Big Mac has about 540 calories and is made up of two beef patties, regular burger ingredients and the distinctive special sauce.
