Think you’re the ultimate burger fan? Think again.

New Zealand native Nela Zisser successfully ate 20 McDonald’s cheeseburgers in a little over 16 minutes—and there’s video proof.

The competitive eater uploaded the video as part of a challenge with fellow competitive eater Erik Lamkin, but Lamkin—coming in at 18 minutes and 20 seconds—didn’t stand a chance.

“That was a lot more food than I expected,” says an out of breath Zisser after finishing off the cheeseburgers.

The model and former pageant winner also goes through five glasses of water (to both drink and dip the burgers in to soften the bread) by the end of the clip.

“As [the burgers] got colder it became a lot more difficult,” she writes on YouTube. “My final time for all 20 cheeseburgers was 16:11 which isn’t bad but I think I could have done better!”

Zisser has been uploading videos of her competitive eating for over a year with challenges including eating over 8,000 calories of cheesecake, 5 lbs. of frozen yogurt and 50 mozzarella cheese sticks.

And if her video leaves you begging for more, fans can expect a new video from the star on her channel on Monday.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

There are a lot of hungry kids right here in our country who would have welcomed a burger tonight, but instead are going to sleep hungry.
