Newcastle student challenges Man vs Food after finishing 24oz burger

A student from Newcastle University has shot to internet fame after it was revealed she was the first female to complete a gigantic eating challenge in a city centre restaurant.

Kate Ovens

Kate Ovens, a business management student from Newcastle University, took on the challenge at the Stateside Diner together with 3 of her friends although she was the only one to complete it within the allocated time.

The challenge involved eating a huge 24oz burger including onion rings, chips and a milkshake within 20 minutes.

She told the Lad Bible,

I love food and have always wanted to do a challenge. I do work out and eat healthily the rest of the time but I just have a huge appetite for some unknown reason.

I would love to do more of these challenges. I feel like there aren’t many girls who do these kinds of things and I’d love to show that we can do them as well as the big guys. If there were any TV opportunities, I wouldn’t say no!

Her achievement has gone down particularly well with fans of the Lad Bible Facebook page…

Kate has her eyes on more competitions and says that next on her list is the infamous ‘Mega Breakfast Challenge’ at the Woodbridge Cafe in Guildford (see video below).

When her recent achievement was compared to the many challenges completed by Adam Richman (from TV’s Man v Food), she told the Lad Bible,

I wouldn’t be too cocky to say he (Adam Richman) has competition, however, I would love to meet him and do a challenge with him possibly.

Perhaps ‘Woman v Food’ is on the cards.

Sounds like a good show to us…
