Any Truckers want to go for their Gluttony badge?
At Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo, Texas, you sit on a stage and attempt to wolf down a 72-ounce top sirloin, a shrimp cocktail, a salad, a dinner roll and a baked potato — all within an hour. The prize? Your meal is free. It’s harder than it looks, though. In nearly a half century, more than 42,000 people have failed and had to pay for their meals — currently $72 each. (Nearly 8,000 challengers have won.)
