39 years, 12,250,000 calories and a featured "Super Size Me" role after his first Big Mac attack, Don Gorske bit into his 25,000th McD's burger. Said he of that first, fateful encounter, "It was the best thing I ever ate in my life."

The corporation responded, "We’re honored that Don Gorske continues to be a longtime, loyal customer. We look forward to serving him for many years to come."

"Who could blame him for being such a fan of the Big Mac? Its twoallbeefpattiesspecialsaucelettucecheesepicklesonionsonasesameseedbun are hard to resist!"

    it's a good thing he tried a big mac instead of cocaine back in 74' I love how it ends with " It's the best thing I ever ate" proving that this guy has no credibility as a food critic, hahahaha.

    Do the DNA analysis, Big Mac's "beef patty's" are made with meat mix of roadkill, zoo animals and human meat. Ya'll are a bunch of cannibals!

    Gosh I was one of these people before I discovered how much we are what we eat. One of the reasons why he eats so many of these sandwiches is that there is no nutrition in them, the cells in his body are starved. A healthier diet will be better for everyone.

    Well, looks like Mr Gorske got good genes from his parents which let him eating 1.77........ Burger each day. I don't know if he exercise regularly but he said he never had any cholesterol issue until now.
    If I eat like this, I will be gone. :)
    Anyway, Mr Gorske, another Big mac is waiting for you.

    How do they know he at 25,000? Just because he said so? In that case, I just drank my 2,500,000 can of coke.

    That's just sick & wrong. Like my dad buying those HungryMan frozen dinners that boast 5 lbs of food with 6,000 calories, 3,000 grams of fat, & god knows how many carbs lol. I avoid fast food in general, but if I -do- eat it, I head to Sonic. They're pretty yummy

    I feel sorry for this guy. If the best thing he's eaten in his life at 57 is a Big Mac. Well, then he hasn't really lived, has he?

    How much will it cost taxpayers and health insurers to pay the medical care for this idiot's self-induced clogged arteries and heart disease?

    Also, is this something to really brag about, how many Big Macs one has eaten? In a country where 66% of Americans are obese, 25 million Americans have diabetes. High calorie fast food such as Big Macs have given Americans such a high percentage of diabetes.

    Well, if you are able to draw the line, and manage not to overeat, you can eat almost anything. It could also be a hoax ofc, although I, myself, choose to believe it.

  25. el capitan obviouso

    So let's review the score...Some doofus = 25,000 BigMacs, Me = 0. That's right I still never had a Big Mac or a Whopper in my life. I always get the smallest possible burger with the most bread and toppings to reduce the taste of that nasty psuedo-meat product. Or better yet, don't eat burgers!

    yeah lady, I p33d in the p00l!

    Really CNN? Really???!! Could you get more transparent in your corporate pandering? A news story runs about some people against the Ronald MacDonald clown character and this story just "happens" to pop up? Just how gullible do you think we are? (and how much did they pay you?)

    (39 x 365) + 9.75 (Extra days for Leap Years) = 14,244.75 / 25,000 = 1.75503256.... Big Macs per day. Did he really keep track all of these years? After the first one did he say to himself, "I must have this everyday for the rest of my life"? When he missed a day, did he double up the next? How sure is he that it was his 25,000th burger, and not 25,001, or 24,999? The best part about this article is people wonder why America has obesity problems. Looking at him I'd say he doesn't have that problem somehow, but yea. Hate me or love me, idc, just my first thoughts after reading an article of such rarity.

    Um, he actually LIKES big macs? Was he born without tastebuds? McD's has the worsrt ground beef on the planet.

    May 18, 2011 at 3:31 pm |
    • Mare@Carp

      Actually, he does have something wrong with his sense of taste. That's part of the reason he eats them – because he can remember what they taste like, and enjoy it.

      Read the other articles on the gentleman.

    Just so you know this was cooked up (no pun intended) by the McDonalds corporation to boost sales .He didn't actually eat 25,000 Big Macs.100% effective,sales are through the roof.
