Man Eats 30000th Big Mac, Setting New World Record

The Big Mac-aholic has also kept close tabs on his own stats over the years, estimating that it took him just 356 days to eat his first 1000 Big Macs - which clocks in at more than two per day.

His accomplishment had been realized by Guinness World Records in 2016 when he had been tallied in at 28,788 major Macs.

Don Gorske from Fon Du Lac, Wisconsin, broke the world record for "Most Big Macs consumed" on Friday when he ate his 30,000th one. "I microwave them, I like them like that", Gorske said.

Gorske thought he had a Big Mac saved in the freezer, but was mistaken.

Don Gorske has a headful of Big Mac trivia and details about his 46-year habit thanks to his OCD and a great memory. That includes a 1982 day in which a snowstorm shut down the restaurant, as well as the day his mom died in 1998. He's eaten at least one nearly every day, since May 17, 1972.


There have only been eight days that have not included a Big Mac with the most recent being November 23, 2011.

His cholesterol is low, his blood pressure is healthy and he weighs less now than he did five years ago when he ate his 25,000th Big Mac.

He says he never made that mistake again.

Now age 64, Goerske is a retired prison guard, and he's as into Big Macs as ever.
