Earlier this year, American professional eater & bodybuilder Randy Santel visited the Czech Republic to help promote food challenges & competitive eating within the country. 

Over the span of two days, he took part in four food challenges, which he has posted to his YouTube channel this week.

At Plzeň’s Pivnifest, he won a $1000 pizza eating contest by wolfing down a 60cm pie in just over 8 minutes:

Think that’s a big pizza? At Plzeň’s Pizza-Doma, Randy and two others took on a 1-meter diameter, 7 kilogram “extreme hot” pie.

The 2000 CZK monster came free after they finished it in under half an hour:

In Prague at the burger joint Bejzment, Randy made short work of the Big Zee burger, a 1.7kg behemoth that consists of a kilo of beef and a boatload of toppings. 

Think you can match Santel’s feat? Bejzment’s Big Zee costs 599 CZK, but it’s free if you can finish it in under an hour. 

The Big Zee might seem daunting, but it was a mere snack for Santel.

Later that same day, he set his sights on a 1-kilo ghost pepper hot dog (more of a burger) from Hadog in Prague: 

Finishing the meal with 10 seconds to spare on the 5-minute time limit, the ghost pepper dog seemed to give the professional eater his toughest challenge on the Czech trip.
