Nela Zisser is a previous winner of Miss Earth New Zealand, and she has a penchant for competitive eating that smashes stereotypes of what it is to be a model.
Despite her deceptive slender frame Nela can eat with the best of them, and she has destroyed a host of previous challenges, including eating ten scorpions, devouring a five pound burrito in under five minutes, and practically inhaling a 8226 calorie cheesecake in less than half an hour.
At 23-years-old, five foot seven inches, and a reported 110 pounds it has to be said taking on 100 burgers is a lofty ambition.
Nela sets the bar high in the video:
I’m not going to have a break, I’m going to try to get through them all.”
The previous record of 62 was set by Yuka Kinoshita of Japan, who used hamburgers and chicken burgers in her attempt.
Watch Yuka go.
For her bid to steal Yuka’s crown, Nela goes with chicken burgers and cheeseburgers as she tries to defeat palate fatigue.
Gutting. Oh well, there is always next year.
Mind you, Nela did have hers with cheese. Maybe the added ingredients took their toll?
