Video: Z-Burger’s Burger-Eating Championship

Nothing says “God Bless America” like stuffing your face with hamburgers. In honor of Independence Day, Z-Burger in DC’s Tenleytown hosted its first-ever Burger Eating Championship. Call it shameless self-promotion or good all-American fun, but this contest was not for the weak of stomach. The challenge: Eat as many burgers as possible in ten minutes. The prize: $1,500 cash and $1,500 worth of Z-Burger food (because the one thing you really want after eating a dozen burgers is 375 more). The contest drew 12 eaters from across the country each hoping to get a taste of ketchup-covered victory.
