17-pounds of cheeseburger defeats all but one at Man v. Grill

LOGAN— Five locals competed in a downtown burger-eating contest: 45 minutes and 17-and-a- half pounds of cheeseburger later, only one succeeded.

“I’m just here ‘cause you get free money for doing it,” said two-time Man v. Grill victor Bryan McLaughlin. “ I’m low on free shirts.”

Center Street Grill held its eighth Man v. Grill contest Friday night, a burger-eating challenge that is offered every couple of months. With each MVG competition the restaurant awards its qualifying contenders $50 in gift certificates and a reimbursement for their $20 burger.

But with the high reward comes a high standard: participants have 45 minutes each to consume a triple-patty, three-and-a-half pound cheeseburger dressed with mayonnaise, pickles, lettuce and tomatoes—and in the instance their last bite isn’t chewed and swallowed by the end of the allotted time, all bets are off.
