The most Big Macs consumed was achieved by Donald Gorske (USA), who ate his 28,788th Big Mac in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA, on 24 August 2016.
Don Gorske, 64, has been one of the world's most dedicated Big Mac fans since he first tried the burger 46 years ago.
At the price of $3.57 each, Gorske would have spend an estimated $80,000 on the fast food hamburgers in the last 46 years.
Somewhat miraculously, Gorske says his cholesterol and blood pressure are normal despite having eaten at least one of the 540-calorie fast food burgers nearly every day for the past four decades.
Don Gorske has eaten a Big Mac almost every day since May 1972.
The Associated Press contributed to the record.
Gorske estimates that it took him 365 days to consume the first 1,000 Big Macs. He has an impressive collection of receipts, burger wrappers, and containers. He said a math teacher calculated he'd eaten 161.6 gallons of McDonald's special sauce. On the day that McDonald's founder Ray Kroc died in 1984, Don ate Big Mac number 5,978. "He has been an extremely loyal customer at my Military Road McDonald's for more than 45 years and I am excited to celebrate him and his new record".
He spoke to the press before his historic meal and reminisced about the time he first crossed the McDonald's threshold for a Big Mac.
After he was honoured, he did exactly what you'd expect - he bought another Big Mac to eat when he got home.
He said his cholesterol and blood pressure are normal and he weighs five pounds less than he did in 2011 when he ate his 25,000 Big Mac. But not before buying a second Big Mac. It wouldn't be the first time.
