  • (intense electronic beat)

  • - Hi everyone.

  • It's Kate here from Kate food challenges.

  • I am absolutely terrified because this is humongous.

  • (rock music)

  • - I found her videos by Googling hot British girl

  • swallows tons of meat.

  • That's Kate, and she puts the gorge in gorgeous.

  • As a competitive eater,

  • she takes on some of the Internet's

  • most disgusting food challenges

  • with the charm of Mary Poppins

  • and the metabolism of a meth addict.

  • The real prize for completing most food challenges

  • is early onset colon cancer.

  • America's favorite food challenge is Thanksgiving,

  • and the rules are simple.

  • Gamble on football,

  • never mentioned native American genocide

  • and shove three types of pie in your pie hole.

  • It's the one day of the year we get together

  • with people we've hated our entire lives

  • to experience what it feels like

  • to work in the Boston market.

  • Gluttony is how we remind all the starving countries

  • that we don't give a shit about them.

  • But if Kate wants to have her cake and eat it too,

  • in one sitting, I'll fly her across the pond to Hollywood

  • where women are discouraged from ever eating

  • in this week's cewebrity profile.

  • (funky beat)

  • (catchy jingle)

  • Welcome.

  • I'm your server, Dan-iel.

  • is this your first time dining with us?

  • - Yeah.

  • - Well everything on our menu is a food challenge.

  • Can I start you with an appetizer?

  • Maybe our Holy Moly?

  • That's a shitload of guacamole?

  • - Yeah, sounds easy.

  • - We'll see.

  • - Oh my God.

  • What's in this?

  • - The secret to our guacamole

  • is that it's 100% Wasabi.

  • - Can I get a drink please?

  • - I can get you a drink,

  • but it does void the appetizer challenge.

  • Your name is Kate Ovens.

  • Is that a stage name?

  • - No, that's my real name.

  • Isn't that weird how that works out all the time?

  • - I know, to be fair,

  • I didn't expect any of this to happen, so--

  • - Just to be a competitive eater,

  • and your last name is Ovens, what a coincidence.

  • How did you get into competitive eating?

  • - I used to actually be kind of chubby growing up

  • and I used to be able to eat quite a lot.

  • And then I decided when I was about 16,

  • that I was going to lose all of the weight.

  • But as I lost the weight, I didn't really lose my appetite.

  • I was just always hungry.

  • So found a challenge that was near me up in Newcastle

  • and I was the only person to ever finish it, so--

  • - You say chubby?

  • - Chubby not fat.

  • - You weren't fat? - No.

  • I was sort of solid, I guess, but--

  • - Do you have any photos that you'd like to share of you

  • when you were chubby?

  • - I do have one.

  • I actually got rid of all of them.

  • I just hated the way I looked.

  • - It's who you were!

  • - I'm annoyed.

  • I wish I had all the chubby photos to be like,

  • this is who I used to be!

  • - That's clearly the appeal here,

  • is that you're an attractive woman

  • that does such a unladylike.

  • - Yeah. - Have you ever thrown up.

  • - Once.

  • - After eating?

  • - That was in October last year.

  • and that was right at the beginning.

  • And I'm never doing that again.

  • What was the competition?

  • It was a challenge called the trashcan challenge

  • and it was a giant dustbin lid

  • and it's got chicken wings, a burger.

  • Bolgonese, two portions of chips, onion rings, ribs,

  • just everything pretty much.

  • - Is it worse because it's over in the UK

  • and the food, there is so awful?

  • - I only go to the good places now.

  • They all contact me.

  • I can actually have pick and choose of where I go.

  • - How big was that burrito that you took down?

  • - Pretty big and you had to get it done in 10 minutes,

  • which was interesting.

  • - Did you ever cheat?

  • - No, no, no, no.

  • Well, the thing is I lose about 50% of my challenges.

  • There are so many competitive eaters

  • who are so much better than me.

  • - But they're ugly.

  • - No, they're not.

  • No, they're really not.

  • They're all sort of everyone's--

  • - Sure. - In their own way.

  • So. - I understand.

  • What was that one video?

  • I think it was the burger one,

  • but I think it also having to take down a milkshake

  • at the end.

  • - Yeah, no,

  • that was the 28 ounce burger at a place called Jam Jar

  • in Newcastle.

  • That was one of my best ones actually.

  • To me, that's a dream.

  • That probably sounds absolutely disgusting but,

  • - Yeah, no, it is.

  • - It was delicious.

  • And, I've managed to finish that in under 10 minutes, so--

  • - Hopefully you make it on our wall of fame.

  • - Hopefully.

  • - Only five people have ever made it.

  • And four of them are Oprah.

  • - Who was the other one.

  • Believe it or not, Pete Rose.

  • - I don't know who that is-- - He's a baseball player.

  • - Okay.

  • - Should be in the hall of fame.

  • But you know, he had a gambling problem.

  • America's pastime.

  • You think you'll never do a Nathan's hot dog eating contest?

  • The thing is, I'm not good enough for it, like--

  • - The thing is, you're not welcome.

  • It's, 4th of July is Independence Day.

  • It's our nations holiday.

  • - You say that, but there's a girl from New Zealand

  • who came this year.

  • - That's, what's so great about our country.

  • We just, open arms unless you're Muslim or Mexican.

  • Then, then we apparently have huge issues.

  • How long do you think you're going to do this?

  • - I'm probably going to say maybe like a couple of years.

  • It's fun now whilst I'm doing it,

  • but it takes a lot of time and effort.

  • What if your metabolism slows down?

  • My metabolism has never really been fast.

  • I have to work really hard.

  • So I'm completely aware of what every,

  • everything that's going to happen in the future.

  • - What's a normal meal for you?

  • - Probably chicken breasts.

  • I've got four different types of vegetables

  • I'll have with it.

  • - Yeah, you're pretty strict.

  • - Yeah.

  • - What kind of workouts are you doing?

  • - I've actually got one of my friends as a personal trainer

  • and he's given me--

  • - I don't like personal trainers.

  • I find them creepy.

  • Is he creepy?

  • - No, no, no.

  • He's the loveliest person ever.

  • No, no, no.

  • I know everyone kind of thinks that PTs are a little bit

  • seedy, but he's one of my best friends.

  • - I'm sure he is.

  • What's it like the next day.

  • And you know what I'm asking about?

  • - Honestly fine.

  • Like absolute, nothing wrong.

  • - When you go on a date,

  • do you have any problem eating in front of a,

  • I would never eat like anything close

  • to any of my challenge sizes at all in front of a date.

  • - No? - No, I've used the most,

  • Emasculator, if I sat here with you doing a food challenge,

  • like on a date and everything,

  • you were getting full on like one burger

  • and I'm there on like number four,

  • you'd think, Oh God, like this is...

  • - It's going to be expensive.

  • Is what I'd be thinking. - Probably.

  • - I don't know if I would be turned off,

  • but I would just be like this, this is gonna cost me

  • in the long haul.

  • You can only stuff your face with one meal

  • for the rest of your life, what is it?

  • - Pizza.

  • That was like a no-brainer.

  • - You ever had Chicago deep dish?

  • No, and I kill myself.

  • I need to have it because everyone--

  • - You don't. - Really?

  • - There's just no need.

  • - Really...

  • - I mean, pizza is so wonderful.

  • And then they said, hey, why don't we take this thing?

  • That's wonderful and make it gross.

  • It's like lasagna.

  • - See I like lasagna. - I like lasagna too,

  • but it's already invented.

  • All right.

  • I've just been talking your ear off.

  • Have you had a chance to decide what you like for an entree?

  • Our specials tonight,

  • we have a 72 ounce slider and a quarter mile long chili dog.

  • - I think I might go with the fettuccine Alfredo.

  • - Okay, that's actually called,

  • fuck, that's going to give me a lot of diarrhea

  • Fettuccine Alfredo.

  • I'll put that right in.

  • Oh, hold on. I'm peeling off the seat.

  • Be Alfredo.

  • Be very Alfredo.

  • Now for this challenge,

  • you have to finish all of it before the video ends.

  • Fresh Parmesan?

  • - Yeah.

  • - Okay say when.

  • I'm not even gonna charge you for the extra Parmesan.

  • Bon Appetit.

  • - This is horrible.

  • No.

  • Oh my God.

  • Someone didn't like their meal.

  • - And where's the bathroom.

  • - We don't have one.

  • It voids the challenge.

  • There is one at the Home Depot across the street.

  • But if you use it, it voids the challenge.

  • - I'm all right?

  • - Oh, gross.

  • Hope you saved room for dessert.

  • - Oh no, I couldn't possibly.

  • - If you didn't save room for dessert,

  • you void the challenge.

  • - Fine.

  • - Geez, I hate my section.

  • Do you like gummy bears?

  • - Yeah, they're fine.

  • - Great.

  • Because it's adult novelty store

  • sent me one ton of expired gummy dicks for free.

  • And I'm going to pass that savings onto you.

  • You have 60 seconds.

  • Or-- - It voids the challenge.

  • - No, I murder the cook!

  • - Eat those dicks lady.

  • I've got a
