A New Zealand-based competitive eater chewed 50 hard-boiled eggs in just over 35 minutes, according to footage shared on YouTube on Jan.
Auckland-based Nela Zisser can often be found tackling extreme food challenges.
This particular feat will be familiar to anyone who’s watched the Paul Newman classic Cool Hand Luke, when the legendary actor played a prison inmate who won a claim that he could eat 50 boiled eggs in an hour.
However, Zisser has some gravy and Coca-Cola Zero Sugar Vanilla to help her tackle the protein-packed challenge, and she finishes it in an impressive 35 minutes 34 seconds.
During the challenge, she describes success as “tormenting” and adds that the challenge involved reinforces the idea that competitive eating is an “extreme sport.”
Zisser’s YouTube account talks about her cooking skills, such as gulping down 10 Burger King Whoppers in 17 minutes, eating a 1-pound burrito in just under 100 seconds, and consuming a 2.2-pound jar of Nutella in under four minutes. Credits: Nela Zisser via Storyful
NELLY: Hey guys. Nelly is here today. I have an epic challenge ahead of me. I’ll take 50 boiled eggs. Now, these eggs are size 8 each and I think 80 calories per egg. So that’s a total of 4,000 calories plus 300 grams of protein, which is a lot of protein.
I also have some sauces and ingredients to dip them in. To keep things a little interesting, here’s some truffle mayonnaise because I don’t want to get flavor fatigue because there are too many eggs. Also here is some vinegar, some salt and some pepper, and also some balsamic glaze.
So I’m going to use this to dip the eggs in so they don’t get a little gross. I feel like eating 50 boiled eggs, like it’s going to be gross at some point. So yes, my timer is there. I’ll do this as quickly as I can, and my trusty Coca-Cola Zero Sugar Vanilla is right here. So yes, I’m very excited. So let’s move on to the challenge.
Well, then I’m going to tie my hair back because I don’t want to get my hair covered in eggs or sauces. OK. Before we even start. Wow. Are you ready for this? All right, cheers guys. And 3, 2, 1 and go. Mmm. Some salt.
Oh, these are intense. Oh my God. I can feel the 300 grams of protein in all this. So busy.
Excuse me. Put some black pepper on it. Some salt. Mmm. This is good. Try some of the immersion here. Oh yes, that’s good. Bring this here. Try swimwear. Oh, the yolk is too thick. Oh my God. I love the truffle mayonnaise. Mmm. 10 out of 10, truffle mayonnaise.
[LAUGHTER] Oopsy-daisy. I can move on to other eggs. That would be too peppery. Try balsamic vinegar. Oh my god, this is so sweet. I think my favorite was either vinegar or truffle mayonnaise. But there’s something pretty cool about just a salt and pepper egg. I’m already 3 minutes. This is much harder than I thought. Oh my God.
I’m so glad I got other things to dip in. Because otherwise I would definitely have taste fatigue by now.
There are too many sirens living in the city.
Oh my God. Oh my God. I’m already very full. This is crazy because I don’t feel like I ate that much. I should have counted them as I ate them. Oh my God. My stomach is already full like crazy. woo.
It really is like jelly. I think some were overcooked than others. Typically, I’m not a big fan of hard-boiled eggs. I prefer hard-boiled eggs, but hard-boiled eggs are definitely easier to eat. It is very difficult to hard boil. Oh my God. There is something small on the membrane. The real challenge was to peel them all off.
Oh man. This challenge is much harder than it looks, my friend. Much more difficult. I’ve seen other people do it before. How hard can eggs be? It seems pretty difficult. Oh man. All right, now 10 minutes. 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.
I just passed about half of them. I think I counted 25. Oh my God. How is this so difficult? I try not to drink too much Coke to keep myself full. I feel so full already. Oh my God. Finding too many dice pieces. Mmm. Oh man.
Excuse me. Oh, there’s dice on this one. It’s very hard to peel. I will just eat.
This is madness. Comment below and tell me about the most poached eggs or any type of egg you’ve ever eaten. Also, if you want me to make 50 scrambled eggs, I think it could be a fun challenge. I bet it would taste better. I love scrambled eggs.
I think boiled would be a little gross. Even 50 boiled eggs. I would probably eventually get tired of them. It’s not that I’m tired of them, but I think that scrambled eggs would definitely be the most delicious. We’ve already done the 50 scrambled egg challenge. If you haven’t seen this before, check it out. I’ll check the link below the description. This was a good challenge. I remember it tasted so good in the beginning. This was really good with chives or something. Very good.
Then finally, it was like I was never going to eat eggs again. But here we are. I am eating more eggs. It has a hall membrane on it. Oh my God. Do we understand? Do we understand? Yes, we get it. It’s clear. Egg yolk. It’s like glued. This is crazy. All right, we’re just going to eat it.
But yes, if you haven’t watched the encrypted video yet, do it. This is a good challenge. At least we’re almost at the bottom layer now. We have 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14. I feel my tempo picking up a bit. Another good thing would be deviled eggs. I absolutely love a good deviled egg.
I’m sorry for this. I’m not even sick I don’t know why you’re running. Maybe it’s the eggs. Very close. I’m tired man. I need candy.
Make it a little more delicious. 19 minutes, 30. Oh my god.
Article. Ah. All these dice are stuck to it. This is madness. You think you get it and it pulls up a bit.
Excuse me. It is breaking.
Very close. This dice is so unfortunate. It destroys the structure of the egg. I just got stuck there. It’s like it’s too tight. Oh, the thing stopped recording. Oh man. Like I said, it breaks the structure of the egg. It gives a disgusting taste. That’s why I have to put up with it. This is not coming out. If you need tips on how to cook eggs without smudging – without the dice sticking to them – please let me know. Ah.
Oh man. This is torture. I wonder what weight it is. I really didn’t solve it. How many grams is an egg? I just don’t want to eat these dice. They’re so disgusting.
I’ve never eaten eggs this hard. Maybe they weren’t very fresh when I got them. Very strange. You can do this. You can do this. For those who think that eating isn’t an extreme sport, I think competitive eating is a purely extreme sport. It requires a lot of mental toughness. Oh man. Article. My guts are just like, ugh. I’ll show you later, but right now it’s terrible.
It’s weird because the ones above were definitely not that bad. The ones below are much worse. This is good. It wasn’t too scary. 5 eggs left God, this is a terrible challenge. This is more difficult than scrambled eggs from memory. I need to watch the video again.
You still have to finish. I won’t let go. It’s too close. I lost some of it. This was a little difficult. It’s going down. These are shit eggs. I usually buy eggs in cardboard boxes. These were things like trays. Maybe that’s why they’re so crap.
I don’t want to lose anything. Oh man. 29 minutes. Ah. Shell. Ah. Still, this was the first piece of shell I bought. Ah. Swallow it. I hate the feeling a shell gives to your teeth. Like nails on a chalkboard. Why is it so stuck? Ah. It’s a little far from there.
I had the weirdest dream last night. I’m watching “Alice and Borderland” on Netflix. If you haven’t seen it, it’s really good. watch it. It’s like a more sinister version of “The Squid Game.” Really good. It’s like a Japanese thriller drama type show where they have to compete in games.
I was in one of the games in my dream. It was very strange. But now I can’t remember what the game is. I just remember waking up and saying wow, that was a weird dream. I have to start writing my dreams. But yes. If you haven’t watched Alice and Borderland, I highly recommend it. One of my favorite series I’ve watched lately.
Wow. A little crust. I get it though.
32 minutes I’m getting very low. My last two babies. last two. What egg did you eat the most in one sitting? They look very small and delicate. And oh yes, that seems easy. But actually, it’s really intense and challenging. Ah. I don’t know if I can eat boiled eggs again after this. I was just so– they made me sick, well and truly. Ah.
Oh my God. OK, last egg. Last eg. Give me some truffle base. Mmm. Oh my God. This also turns me away from truffle mayonnaise, which is weird because I love truffle mayonnaise. OK, last bite. I’d wipe my hands, but they’re covered like egg membranes. Like this. Oh my God.
35 minutes 34 seconds. 50 hard-boiled eggs. Never again. Let alone 50 eggs, do I eat hard-boiled eggs, never come into my life. This was absolutely disgusting. I have to watch that scrambled egg video again because I remember it tasted really good and then I think maybe towards the end I got really sick.
But yes, even in the beginning it was a bit of an ah. I don’t like boiled eggs. Like a poached egg or two? Tasty. Nice little snack. Pair it with some chicken breast, you know? Some broccoli, delicious. But this was new. Ah. Ah. Ah.
But yes, I was eating 300 grams of protein. That’s why I’m going to be huge from now on. I will be big and strong. Yes. I need to wash my hands. But yes, I love you very, very much. Thank you for stopping by and watching the video. I hope you enjoyed the challenge. If you haven’t already, please go check out my links. It will be below the description. So go check it out.
I designed them all myself. It’s in champion clothing so you know it’s top quality and I have it too and it’s lasted a very long time and is very comfortable and comfortable. So yes, go check it out. And yes, I’m going to go wash my hands and take a nap. And then I will never eat boiled eggs again in my life. Yes, I love you very, very much and see you next time. Oh my God.
Oh, this is crazy. My stomach was flat before this. It was completely straight. For example, my stomach has become like this. And now it is. Oh my God. I’m dead.
