  • Man Eats 30000th Big Mac, Setting New World Record

He's just eaten his 30,000th Big Mac at the same McDonald's where he got his first ultra-beefy burger in 1972.

On Friday, a man from Fond du Lac, in Wisconsin, downed his 30,000 Big Mac, smashing the previous world record.

Gorske holds the Guinness World Record for most Big Macs consumed, a title he was awarded in 2016 and isn't likely to be broken anytime soon.

Don Gorske, star of 2005 film 'Don Gorske: Mac Daddy', reached his historic milestone on Friday at the same branch in which he tried his first Big Mac in 1972.

Gorske says he's eaten so many because he just loves hamburgers.

So why eat 30,000 Big Macs?

When McDonald's debuted the Grand Mac and Big Mac Jr. sandwiches past year, Gorske handed out bottles of Big Mac sauce to the lucky first customers at a McDonald's restaurant in Wauwatosa.


Gorske showed off his decades of receipts, sandwich wrappers and containers. The first non-Big Mac day was during a snowstorm, when he arrived at his local McDonald's restaurant to find it closed.

Tall and lanky, with a graying ponytail and friendly demeanor, Gorske has obsessive compulsive disorder and a meticulous memory, which lends to his Big Mac habit and his penchant for details.

He suffers from obsessive compulsive disorder and has kept nearly every receipt for every Big Mac he's purchased.

He even has the day when McDonald's switched to shredded lettuce marked down: February 10, 1999. He said that the first time he missed eating a Big Mac was in 1982.

In case you're wondering, Gorske says his cholesterol and blood pressure are normal and he weighs five pounds less than he did when he ate his 25,000th Big Mac in 2011.

If he continues at the pace he's been eating, Don predicts that he'll eat his 40,000th Big Mac in 2032, when he'll be 78.

Despite eating two Big Macs daily, Gorske appears healthy.
