Poker Pro Fails to Eat $1,000 worth of McDonald’s Food in 36 Hours, Loses Prop Bet

Tags: McDonalds, Mike Noori, prop bet.
Posted on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 by "T".

Poker pro Mike Noori accepted the prop bet offered by WPT Tour Director Matt Savage, to eat McDonald's food worth $1,000 in 36 hours. The prize if he accomplishes it - $200,000!

The bet garnered the attention of the poker community after Matt Savage stipulated the conditions of the bet, which included at least $200 to be spent on salads, at least $300 should be spent on hot food items wherein $50 has to be burgers, and what's worse; drinks aren't included in the total.

Whichever way you look at it, even considering the fact that Noori's game plan involved spending $500 on apple bags, he is going to put himself in an eating spree containing 66,000 calories that has to be squeezed in just one day and a half!

In the world of fast food restaurants, imagine trying to eat over $10 worth of McDonald's food in just one sitting, and truth is, it's not easy to do. Furthermore, fast food is quite affordable, so $10 can buy you a lot of food.

If you were one of those who thought that this is a highly impossible feat to accomplish, then it turns out you're right. Noori miserably failed as he tried to consume the monstrous amount of fastfood items. Actually, he didn't even get really close to the goal.

Noori documented his eating escapade on his Twitter account https://twitter.com/McHamburgler1k, eating a plethora of various McDonald's food that we love (or hate) to eat. On May 19, he even got into the spirit of the challenge by donning a Hamburglar costume, ordered several items like chicken breasts, McNuggets, bacon strips, parfaits, McFlurrys, apple slices, and even tubs of guacamole, and said, "3 hours in, $138 worth of food ordered, about $60 consumed. Going to play golf!"

Despite his best efforts, with just a final total of $95 of food eaten, Noori was truly struggling, and it was quite obvious he had extremely low chances of winning the prop bet. When he was just going for a second round of his orders, he dropped a hint that it's going to fail, "I don't really have much of an appetite."
It was the start of day 2, yet his first tweet for that day said it all:

Two hours later, he finally decided to throw in the towel:

Noori got odds of just 5:1 - really, no chance of getting this in the bag.

However, the bright side is that it appears the bet had somehow transformed into a charity drive, raising $14,000 in the process (to be given to the needy in Vietnam on Christmas), so even if Noori performed poorly on the bet, maybe most of us would let him off the hook this time.

dam, wish 10$ here got whatever mass load of mcdonalds this author gets. its expensive - and if I had the money to burn Id easily spend over 20$ on a meal at mikky d's
 DaCapo715/23/2017 10:12:07 AM GMT
This bad was funny and dangerous for his health, because so many fast food and drinks in 36 hours was really crazy. But some guys do everything for money and normally he have no chance to win this bet. But ist was a good promotion for the Mc reastaurants Blink
 dule-vu5/23/2017 11:55:10 AM GMT
so as we see,he wasnt even close to his goal and he stopped after few hours!dont know what was he thinking when he wanted to do this!but now he see that this wasnt normal bet!but this is america and its not strange for me!
 Calmplay5/23/2017 12:18:50 PM GMT
That was silly, waste of his money I wonder too why the hell he thought he was going to do this...

 Davydave5/23/2017 1:40:06 PM GMT
What an epic failure.
 shokaku5/23/2017 2:49:51 PM GMT
Obelix could do it.
 TheMachineQC5/23/2017 3:01:06 PM GMT
With 1000$ in a mcdonalds you're the richest guy in the place. But still if the guy was smart he could have just bought the most expensive items over and over and a lot of coca cola or something. It's all overpriced and watered down too, perfect for this kind of challenge! lol

Anyways I wouldn't try this kinda challenge as it will probably result in a cancer or worse, liquid pooping. Not worth it Blink
 Mober5/23/2017 8:17:19 PM GMT
It was looking closer to a fail, especially after the specification in what to it.
It wouldnt be a surprise if he had tested it before to see it can happen
and then propose the bet Smile
I hope he liked mcdonalds.
Looked like a promotion too Smile

What? He gave up? Really? What a disappointment.
I think I can do better. I can easily eat 5 or 6 McDonald's Sausage McMuffins (with or without egg, depending on my mood) and 2 or 3 pieces of Hash Browns in just 20 minutes. And these are just appetizers!
 doubletop7775/24/2017 7:55:35 AM GMT
I always thought that this would be a very difficult bet to win but, lets be honest, it was a pretty poor attempt. He couldnt even eat $100 of food which is very achievable in my opinion
 Mysik865/24/2017 9:07:27 AM GMT
$1000 worth food in 36 hours? It's impossible. I know, that pro players like hazard, but why you agree to impossible bet?
It would be same hard, if he spent half of this money on fast-food in 3 days.

Thumbs Up

for once I want to give you a upvote

so what were his expenses on a lost bet, besides a $100 or so spent on gourmet food? i wonder if he would go for such a bet if he had to pay 200K from his pocket if he lost... now it just turned into a great pr campaign that probably was planned in advance.
 Gerimantas5/24/2017 4:44:14 PM GMT
Yes this was what many people here and probably in his friends too think at first, no chance to eat this many food in so short time amount. $1000 in McDonald's, this is crazy, ithink food is maybe mot cheapest there, but i get more than i need for kess than 10 euros, so 1000 euros or dollars is mo chance
 Tony_MON7ANA5/25/2017 7:10:23 AM GMT
McDonald's food can be tastier and more enjoyable.
An estranged friend of mine, who used to work at McDonald's restaurant in the US, once told me some secrets. I am not supposed to disclose all the tricks, but I can give you a list of keywords here: steamed bun, no salt, fresh, round egg, patty, without the toy, receipt, and a big smile.
Bon appétit!
 dule-vu5/25/2017 1:36:12 PM GMT
maybe this was only some marketing thing from McDonalds or this player,who know!he knewt from start this is something that he cant do it and he finished only after few hours!who know who and what is behind this!
 Tony_MON7ANA5/27/2017 8:49:59 AM GMT
I used to eat and drink as if there were no tomorrow. Big ass steak, a whole cantaloupe, and a pitcher of beer for breakfast or lunch. And I would occasionally hit the all-you-can-eat dinner (champagne brunch on Sundays) buffet with unlimited soft drinks, coffee, tea, beer, cocktails, wine, etc. But not anymore. I am getting old.
 Odysseus1015/27/2017 6:21:25 PM GMT
He should have gone somewhere that mcdonald's food is very expensive, or a place where the exchange rate to the US would have assisted him. Apparently McDonald's restaurants in Norway are most expensive on average in the world.

And with the self serve kiosk, you can add a ton of extra items, to get a burger up to $100?


 Gerimantas5/27/2017 7:33:53 PM GMT
Yes still can't understand how to eat $1000 worth of McDonald's food un 36 hours, u tried to think about thus like what would I need to eat if I take thus bet and no chance really no chance, I think maximum food i can eat in such period is $200. So I would lose too

would be able to accept him losing the bet if he actually ate mc donalds for 36hours, but he gave up so early!
 dule-vu5/29/2017 9:52:09 AM GMT
I know that in last year of two McDonalds have promotion that hamburger and cheesburger cost only 1 e in every country,so imagine to eat so much of this kind of burgers,100 for 100 e!and you wouldnt even be close to 1000 $,but for sure youw will be dead Big Smile
 Mober5/30/2017 6:24:20 PM GMT
With so much money in stake, he could have done a little research,
check to see in which country mcdonalds was most expensive to eat, travel there
and eat less at the end. Smile
There was no restriction on the country for the bet.
