5,000 Calories in 5 Minutes: Model Gobbles Tower of Chicken and Waffles

An Auckland-based competitive eater devoured just over 5,000 calories in under five minutes in the form of a chicken and waffle tower “drenched” in maple syrup.

Competitive eater and model Nela Zisser can often be found making her way through outrageous food challenges around Auckland.

“I didn’t think I’d be able to finish it that quickly,” Zisser notes after finishing the towering breakfast challenge in four minutes and 53 seconds. The challenge took place at local restaurant Electric Chicken, with the total calorie count coming in at 5,501.

Zisser’s YouTube account chronicles such food feats as wolfing down 10 Burger King Whoppers in 17 minutes, devouring a 1-kg burrito in just under 100 seconds, and consuming a 2.2-pound jar of Nutella in under four minutes.
