Imagine gobbling up more than 11lbs of pie in one sitting; not only did one man do it, but he broke two world records in the process.

Jamie “The Bear” McDonald sat before two giant apple pies at Thunder Valley Casino Resort Monday morning to help kick off their new buffet.

With a glass of tea in hand, McDonald ate 11.25lbs of pie in about ten minutes. The old record of eating apple pie in six minutes was 5lbs 8oz; in six minutes “The Bear” was able to swallow 9lbs 5oz. He also broke a record for most apple pie eaten by one person.

“The sugar really started to get to me in the last 2 minutes,” McDonald told FOX40. He said he took protein powder before eating Monday, and drank about a half-gallon of tea while chomping down on the pie to help cut the sugar.

He estimates it was about 10,000-15,000 calories in the pie he ate, and said he will keep the rest of his day’s calories low. However, he did tell FOX40 he was eyeing up the new buffet for a meal later in the day.

McDonald is now heading to an onion ring eating contest in Ohio.
