There was a summer where I ate about 30 pieces of shrimp over the course of a barbecue. While 12-year-old Pete was pretty proud of this accomplishment, 30 shrimp become dwarfed when compared to a legendary professional eater such as Molly Schuyler.
In a recent live stream event held at the San Pedro Fish Market Grille in Rolling Hills, CA, Schuyler managed to devour more than 600 shrimp in a single sitting.
The feat was broadcast live on Twitch in honor of National Shrimp Day last week. Schuyler was given an hour to see exactly how many shrimp she could handle from the viral seafood restaurant chain.
With about a minute to spare, she was able to knock out exactly 642 pieces of shrimp as she cleared two platters filled to the brim. We won't know for sure how many more she would have bested in that final minute had there been more shrimp on the table, but her entry in the shrimp-eating book of records is a legendary one.
Schuyler, a seasoned professional, is no stranger to vast quantities of food. In another recent live stream, she crushed 360 chicken nuggets from Burger King in a single session — the equivalent of 11.5 pounds, dipping sauce not included.
