Competitive Eater Devours 50 KFC Wings in Under 50 Minutes

A competitive eater from New Zealand chowed down on two buckets filled with 50 KFC wings in total in a challenge that took just under 50 minutes to complete.

Auckland-based competitive eater and model Nela Zisser can often be found making her way through outrageous food challenges.

This time out Zisser said she suffered a case of the “meat sweats” as she made her way through the massive challenge. After wrapping up in a final time of 46 minutes and 13 seconds, Zisser said she was “pretty proud” of her effort.

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. Credit: Nela Zisser via Storyful

NELA ZISSER: Hey, guys. It's Nela here. Today, I've got a really epic challenge here in front of me. I've got 50 KFC wicked wings. Now, this is so much food. It is 8,500 calories, which is absolutely insane. Each wicked wing has 170 calories in it, and it also has 10 grams of protein per wicked wing. So there's a total of 500 grams of protein in this meal right in front of me here.

And yeah, I'm basically just going to be eating it as quickly as I can. I've got my trusty little timer right here, which I'll probably just chuck-- I'll chuck up here somewhere and adjust it so you guys can see it. Beautiful.

All right, so I've got my timer there in front of me, I've got some of my tasty Coca-Cola vanilla, no sugar. So I'm going to be drinking that with it. And yeah, let's get into it. I hope you guys enjoy the challenge. All right, let's get started. I'm going to grab my first piece of chicken, and three, two, one, go. OK.

Mmh, Oh my God! That is so good. That's so, so good. Take a piece. Oh man, this is so good. I'm going to make sure I'm cleaning the bones real good.

Oh my God! It's still hot as well. I love KFC when it's still hot. It's just so much better. This is so good, Oh my God! I just remembered, I should be keeping a tally. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven. OK. seven-- seven down. Number eight.

Number nine. Number 10. And these are like hefty ass wicked wings. Like just have a look at that. These are some bad boy wicked ones. There's just so much meat.

Lost count again. That's OK. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11, 11. Oh, so, so good. And it's so tasty.

I don't want to waste any of the crumb. It's time to get the coke now. Little bit of drink. Whoo! [BURP] pardon me. That is some-- that is some sharp coke. Whoo! Very refreshing though.

Oh my God! Look at this mammoth. Oh my God! He is huge. Some KFC's just like go all out and they do massive ass wicked wings. Other ones just do these tiny little piddly things that just have nothing on them. And this is madness. There so much meat. It's so good.

Oh, excuse me. I probably lost count how many I have done. And it's finally because I counted them beforehand, so I know there's 50. Once we get to a low number then I'll know how many I have done. Whoo! So filling.

Nine minutes. Typically I put my time over there, but the buckets were too big, so they were blocking it. So I had to put it in front.

My hands are getting to greasy. It isn't natural. [BURP] Oh man! Well, this is just so tasty. I don't think I've had KFC for like, since I did my last KFC video actually. It was a little while ago. And it was like the $100 KFC challenge or something. I'll leave a link down below so you guys can go check that out, if you haven't already.

Whoo! Ha, getting sweaty. Oh, I mean, the meat to it. Oh my God! Whoo! OK. Oh my God, it's so much. It's so much. It's so rich. But it's so, so good.

Oh man! Whoo! Some of these are just so huge. It's just amazing. Oh, it's a bone.

Whoo! Need another drink. Oh man. If you're a true fan and have made it this far in the video without skipping to the end, comment down below. Leave a word. Comment down. Interesting word. Comment vanilla for my Coca-Cola vanilla low sugar down below if you've made it this far into the video and haven't jumped to the end of it.

Speaking of vanilla coke. Coca-Cola should really sponsor me, I reckon. I'm such a-- I'm such an obsessed customer. Coca-Cola if you're watching this, please sponsor me. Oh my God! Whoo! There is so much. [BURP] Oh, pardon me.

No, KFC didn't sponsor this video. I paid for all this. But I'm now on KFC's PR list. So they've been sending me like-- they sent me like a Christmas sweater a while back to promote, which I did because it was like for charity. It was really cool. And then they also recently sent me their new burger.

But they sent it in the middle of the day. So at work. So I had to put my-- my mom was home. So I got her to like grab it and just put it in the fridge. It was so good. It was like the Zinger crunch thing. Had like-- had corn chips in there. And jalapeños, which was fucking good. So good. So I had to eat it after I got home from work, but it was very nice.

So yes, I'm on the PR list now, which is exciting. I get sent cute little gifts and stuff. So yeah. But actually it wasn't too expensive. Typically something like this in New Zealand would cost like over $100 if you're going to get 30 wicked wings.

But I found that on their catering part of the website, you can actually get all those much cheaper, and I only paid $66 for all of these wicked wings, which is so cheap in New Zealand. Because I think you typically pay like, I think it's $37 for a 20 pack. Like it is nuts. So expensive. Yeah. Very happy about that.

Whoo! So many more wicked wings to finish. So good. Whoo! Oh my God. [BURP] Pardon me. Oh, a [INAUDIBLE] right here. What are on time limit? 20 minutes.

I'll do a head count soon. My hands are just insane. Oh my God. So greasy. OK, we've got one, two, three, four, five, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, I think. That means I've eaten 30.

[BURP] Oh! Whoo! OK. That's not a perfect count, though. I may have gotten that off by like one or so. [BURP] Oh! [BURP] Oh! [BURP] Oh, pardon me. I'm like very full of gas. Made some room though, so that's good.

A bit of hair on my face. Oh my God! Whoo! Oh my God! I reckon I can do this. I can totally do this. I've got one, two, three, four, five, six. Six left in this bucket. Make it eight. So I put in this bucket. Eight in that bucket. And there's one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. So we've got 16 left plus this one. Which I've already made disappear. So we've got 16 left.

Whoo! [BURP] Beautiful. timer turned off. Hopefully I caught that really quickly. And I just got a bunch of grease on my camera pushing recording. So that's going to be fun to clean off. Whoo!

Oh my God. that's so dumb. I [INAUDIBLE] a bit of cartilage in my mouth, [INAUDIBLE] spit it out and then I'm like, Oh, I'm taking a drink. And then like try to do the same thing. Oh man, just coke on me. Luckily it should probably come out. This shirt has had lots of stains on it before and it's fine.

Oh man! Whoo! Oh man, give me like-- meat sweats gives you like reduced mental capacity. Oh! OK. I'm getting hair on my face. I know people keep telling me to put my hair up, blah, blah, put your hair up, it'll be easier.

The thing is when I put my hair up, people also make fun of me. And say, Oh, you look funny putting your hair up. You know? It doesn't really bother me too much having it down. Only really when it goes in my mouth. That bothers with me. Yeah.

I mean, if it was like a [? speed run, ?] I'd definitely put my hair back. But for something like this where a few seconds isn't really going to change much, no point. Whoo!

How we doing time-wise? 27 minutes. Oh, OK. I'm like trying to save like the bigger, some of the big boys left, trying to save them for like last. And eat like the smaller ones. It's like a huge-- this is a wing, but it's like huge.

They're crazy. They're like honestly bigger than some of the actual drums that I've gotten at KFC. The actual drumsticks. This is actually like heavier. I'm not complaining though because, you know, I'm getting more for the money.

For anyone actually wondering which KFC gave me these fucking massive thick wings, [INAUDIBLE]. Actually like my [INAUDIBLE] is pretty good. They do forget a lot of things. Like and everything, like forgetting the gravy. Like if I ask for gravy, don't forget it. They forgot my coleslaw a few times. But definitely the best chicken that I've been to, in Auckland anyway.

Whoo! OK, so we've got one, two, three, four, five. And we've got one, two, three, four, five. We've got 10 left. Oh my God. That means that I've had 400 grams of protein. [BURP] Ooh! [BURP] According to my boyfriend who goes to the gym, I should be having about 100. I mean, Like 100 a day or something. Like he averages like 200, but he's like don't [INAUDIBLE]

So, yeah, 400 grams of protein so far. About to make it 500. I'm sure he calculated the fact that the fat would be funny. I even wonder how much fat I've eaten today to be honest. At least protein I can pretend that it's healthy.

I was just like the average though, the average [INAUDIBLE] these big boys are like way more. Whoo! OK. Oh, I've eaten-- I've got one small one, or two small ones left. I've got one small one left. I've got two small ones left. [INAUDIBLE] big, but not the massive drumsticky ones. Oh,

We can do this. Oh my God! Whoo! Oh my God! OK. For this one, I've got six left. This is the seventh one.

Oh my God! OK. I've just got these big ass ones looking at me. He's not too big. [INAUDIBLE] wear a loose dress. Whoo! Mind over matter.

Oh my God! I'm getting so tired. I'm going to do it though. I still have to bake cookies after this because I've got two more days left with my placement on general medicine. And I'm going to make some cookies for the wards. Like for all the nurses and the health care assistants and stuff, and the doctors. Ooh! [BURP] Ooh! Pardon me.

And I'm going to make then later on tonight. I'm going to do my famous triple truffle cookies. White chocolate, milk chocolate, and either dark chocolate or caramel, which is like caramel chocolate.

Whoo! Oh my God. I'm seriously going to need to lie down for some, at least an hour. [INAUDIBLE] I don't know what time it is because my watch started [INAUDIBLE] Take a little look see. It's 3:30. And we're on 36 minutes.

Oh my God! Whoo! Oh my God! OK. I've got three more left after this one. Perks of living in the city. All these sireny noises. I reckon that sounds like a fire. Who knows. Couldn't see it.

Oh my God! So close. Oh, bit of bone. I figured. Yeah. Oh my God! [INAUDIBLE] Ooh, Little bone.

Oh my God! [BURP] And like I have to spray this table down. You guys can't really take too much because I've got the timer in front of it, but it's just like a pile of bones in front of me. I'll show you guys at the end, after I wash my hands.

Oh, it's never ending. Got two more. Yeah. Oh my God! OK. Two left. (CHANTING) We can do this. We can do this. We can do this. We can do this.

Oh, well, mind over matter. Oh my God! So close. [INAUDIBLE] just like too big. You know? KFC is giving me too much quality and quantity.

I think catering is definitely the way to go to order when you order KFC though. In New Zealand anyway. They [INAUDIBLE] really nice. Typically when I get my KFC and by the time bring it home, it's like averagey. You know? When I'm hungry it tastes good though. [INAUDIBLE] I'm not hungry anymore, it's not that great. But this was a really nice.

Oh, we got one more. Last one. Oh my God! Last one. The end is near. [BURP] Oh, pardon me. Oh my God! We are so close. So close team. So close. Oh!

Oh my God! We did it. What was the time? 46 minutes. Oh my God. Oh my God. OK. Whoo! That was absolutely insane. That was so much chicken. 8,500 calories and 500 grams of protein. 50 KFC wicked wings.

Pretty proud of myself that I finished that. There was like a moment there where I had maybe like 10 or so left and I was like, no way am I going to be able to get through these. But I finished it. So I'm very, very proud of that.
