National Cheeseburger Day is just around the corner, and boy, have we got a colossal way to celebrate (as if you needed an excuse to chow down on some cheeseburgers). Jake’s Wayback Burgers, the burger chain that focuses on bringing the unassuming, old-fashioned burger back, will be serving their “Triple Triple Burger”: a giant two-pound, nine-beef-patty cheeseburger, from now until National Cheeseburger Day on September 18. The person who’s able to finish this burger the fastest will be able to win $3,330 in honor of the “Triple Triple,” and will be crowned winner of the Triple Triple Challenge.
So, not only do you have to be able to eat the whole burger, but you need to plough through it pretty quickly. Think you have what it takes? Order the Triple Triple at your local Wayback Burgers, and have a friend film your attempt, then upload to YouTube, and you might win.
Just to get your heart pumping (and your arteries clogging), let us remind you that last year’s winner finished their burger in under 30 seconds.
