Don Gorske bites into his 18,000th Massive Mac at Fond du lac Excessive Faculty, in Fond du Lac, Wis., Nov. 6, 2001.
Don Gorske has been eating Big Macs for more than 46 years and has set the record for most Big Macs consumed in the Guinness Book of World Records. Gorske says he's driven not by the challenge of reaching new milestones but by his love of hamburgers.
Gorske says he's eaten at least one Big Mac nearly every day since May 17, 1972.

Not only that, but in 2006 he finished the San Diego marathon while holding his 21,387th Big Mac, proving once and for all that he is indestructible.
Gorske thought he had a Big Mac saved in the freezer, but was mistaken. "Eating Big Macs doesn't affect me as far as my health goes".

The Big Mac fan's television appearances include the "Rachel Ray Show", "Jimmie Kimmel", "Lopez Tonight", "I've got a Secret", "Oprah" and "Inside Edition". The first time, he drove to McDonald's during a snowstorm and discovered it was closed. According to his own calculations, there have only been roughly eight days in that time when he didn't eat a Big Mac.
