Omaha food challenge upstart Molly Schuyler struck again last night, conquering the massive "pig wings" challenge at Starsky's in downtown Omaha in a mere 38 minutes, tying the record for the fastest time with her main competition in local eating contests, professional eater Randy Santel of Overland Park, Kan.
It's the fourth challenge she's won since August.
"It was brutal," she said. "I almost couldn't push through. I do not ever want to do this challenge again, so help me God."
The Pig Wings Challenge consists of five pounds of pig wings, which are like chicken wings, made from pork, and three pounds of corn nuggets, which are filled with a creamed-corn like substance. The challenge was featured on an episode of the Travel Channel's "Man vs. Food Nation." The challenger in the episode did not win the challenge.
Schuyler was the first woman to conquer this challenge, along with a number of other local food challenges.
In August, Schuyler became the first woman to take down the Stellanator, the well-known food challenge at Stella's Bar and Grill, in a mere 15 minutes. A few weeks later, she took down Sinful Burger's “Goliath” Challenge: five pounds of food that includes a giant burger and a pound of fries.
The 32-year-old Schuyler took Santel's record in the Goliath Challenge, finishing in 17 minutes and three seconds. Santel still holds the record for the fastest Stellanator. He finished the challenge in 7 minutes, 26 seconds.
She also took down the five-pound Big Axe Calzone at Old River Pizza Company in Council Bluffs.
She finished in 11 minutes and 23 seconds, stealing the record from Santel.
Sinful Burger owner Jim Nearing is setting up a Goliath face-off between Schuyler and Santel, with proceeds going to charity.
