With people taking to YouTube to record themselves or friends taking on a food challenge.

The trend became popular in 2008 when 'Man V. Food' an American food reality series began.

Originally hosted by food enthusiast Adam Richman, the program explored the food offerings of different American cities.

Where they then took on a pre-existing eating challenge at a local restaurant.

And only sometimes came out on top.

The likes of BeardMeatsFood and Randy Santel have paved the way for food challenges.

And there's another YouTuber who has got involved with the challenges.

Joey Chestnut- one of the world's competitive eaters.

Joey, who holds 44 eating contest records, posts videos of challenges to his YouTube account.

His YouTube account states, "I am the best competitive eater in the world".

The most recent video on his channel sees Joey undertaking 32 McDonalds Big Macs in just 38 minutes.

A potential world record.

The 32 burgers he consumed in that time equaled to 15.36lbs of burger.

And the 32 burgers had a total amount of 18,016 calories.

A total that is over a man's recommended weekly calorie intake, which is 17,000.

Unbelievable isn't it.

In the description, Joey wrote an explanation saying, "Since being a kid, I've dreamt about eating as many Big Macs as I could. As the ultimate cheat day event, I ordered 32 Big Mac sandwiches from Uber Eats and recorded the experience."

"According to McDonald’s, the Big Mac features 2 100 percent pure beef patties and Big Mac sauce sandwiched between a sesame seed bun. It’s topped off with pickles, crisp lettuce, onions and American cheese for a 100 percent beef burger with a taste like no other".

He continued writing, "I remember being a little kid and they would sell two Big Macs for $4 and me and my grandpa would get four of them. I’d end up eating three."

"And this is bringing me back to being a kid. Me and my grandpa would go back to the same McDonald’s every time. And it’s crazy, when I drive by that McDonald’s I still kinda just think about it."

"I think about all the times I was there with my grandpa and it’s weird the way that food takes you back and helps you remember things. With Big Macs, I definitely remember my grandpa."

"I ate 32 Big Mac® in 38 minutes, 15 seconds. The meal is equivalent to 15.36 pounds and 18,016 calories".

In the description, Joey also explained how it was possible for him.

He added, "I’m still amazed at how good the Big Macs tasted. It’s so much easier to eat a food that you’re familiar with and your body just already knows".

As he finished in 38 minutes, some people are claiming it to be a world record, although it has not been confirmed yet. If it was a record it would not be Joey's first, as he currently holds a record for eating 74 hot dogs in 10 minutes.

So do you think you'll be giving this challenge a go?
