EAST LANSING – Derek Metcalf, a senior at Michigan State University, saw a challenge posted on Snapchat last week: eat 100 McChicken sandwiches from McDonald’s in 24-hours.
“I’m a fan of the McChicken,” Metcalf said, “I’ve always loved them.”
He didn’t think he could eat 100. Maybe a professional eater. Not a chemical engineering major. But he decided to give it his best shot.
He started eating at 4:30 a.m. The first four went down easy, Metcalf said.
Metcalf broadcast his efforts via Snapchat during the course of the day.
He knew he was gaining steam when his friends started texting him to say he was the entirety of the MSU Snapchat stories page. The story had more than 5,000 views on Snapchat, said Andrew Seng, a friend of Metcalf’s.
