Teenager demolishes a monster TEN-PATTY burger (with cheese) in 20 minutes

Diners and restaurant staff watch on in amazement as a teenager finishes a ten-patty burger in just twenty minutes – before washing it all down with fries and pop.  

Ethan Mueller, 17, ate the gargantuan meal at a Whataburger in Allen, Collin County, Texas last week.

He had told friends he was going to beat the record of seven patties, and spent just $21 on the challenge – which also included five slices of cheese.

In video filmed by Blake Reynolds, 18, from nearby Farmersville, a receipt of Mueller’s order is also shown, revealing the ‘plain’ and ‘dry’ mammoth order.

The footage then cuts to Mueller seated in a t-shirt and shorts chomping away on the burger, as the crowd around him begins to whip up support. 

He’s halfway through as the video cuts to fellow diners looking on in amazement, who then begin chanting ‘Ethan’ in support of his efforts.

Reynolds, who videoed the burger challenge, told USA today that keeping the burger down was a challenge. Mueller ‘threw up a few times’ after eating the burger, he said. 

Whataburger was unable to confirm whether Mueller had indeed set a record with the burger – but a spokeswoman said: ‘This may be the first time we captured someone from the cheering crew wiping sweat off the hero’s brow.’ 

Thousands have commented on the video, commending Mueller for his efforts. 

Ethan Trace said: ‘So this is what it’s like to hear people chanting my name. Sweet.’ 

While another fellow Ethan said: ‘Only someone names Ethan would do this.’ 

Some even thought they could do better. One said: ‘If you left me alone with that thing it’d be gone way too quick.’
