How Fast Can A Human Eat A Head Of Lettuce?

Speed-eating might possibly be the most bizarre sport you can think of, yet people around the world are constantly vying to set a world record. As hard as it is to grasp how people come up with these concepts, you have to admit they're pretty impressive nonetheless. Just this year, A U.K.-based competitor, Leah Shutkever, landed her spot in the Guinness World Record book for consuming 19 chicken nuggets in one minute, according to Times Now. Even though the number seems remarkable to the average eater, Shutkever was actually disappointed that she didn't down more. Either way, she currently holds 27 world records, which is something to be proud of.

According to the Guinness World Records, another professional eater was named in 2018 for smashing 86.35 ounces of mayonnaise in under three minutes. Altogether, the ounces equaled around three jars. And if you think you've heard everything at this point, another completive food athlete once set a notable record for quickly eating a head of lettuce.

The Canadian has landed 9 world records

In March of 2021, Canadian native Mike Jack set the Guinness World Record for the fastest head of lettuce consumed. The contest took place in London, Ontario, in which the vegan participant managed to scarf down a lettuce head in one minute and 31.053 seconds.

Per The Peter Borough Examiner, Jack has now racked up a total of nine world records, one of which includes the most ghost peppers eaten in two minutes. His accomplishments have landed him a half-page feature in the 2022 edition of Guinness World Records, a publication in which he's appeared three times. He frequently competes in pepper-based contests, which is something he enjoys inviting another friend to attempt along with him. "I usually invite a guest to join me. It's fun to watch them burn up," he said. For fans of speed eating, this man seems like someone to keep an eye on as he continues setting records worldwide.
