  • (alarm bell ringing)

  • Welcome back.

  • Of course we wish we could all spend hours

  • in the kitchen slaving away over a paleo,

  • gluten-free, FODMAP-friendly, vegan dish,

  • but sometimes you only have five minutes to find dinner.

  • You're caught between a rock and a hard place.

  • That rock is Burger King,

  • and the hard place is McDonald's.

  • Hmmm.

  • Today we're gonna help you make the best

  • five-minute dinner choice by determining

  • which is unhealthier, the Big Mac or the Whopper.

  • It's time for Fast Food Faceoff,

  • Whopper Verses Big Mac Edition.

  • OK, right here we have a Big Mac and a Whopper,

  • and essentially what we're gonna be doing is

  • tasting these, and then making our individual determinations

  • as to which one has more calories, more fat,

  • and more sodium, and then by whichever majority

  • we have chosen, which one is the most unhealthy

  • according to our opinion.

  • Let's do this.

  • First off, let's talk about calories.

  • Now, listen.

  • This ain't the pretty commercial burger.

  • This is just what you get when you just go

  • to Burger King and say, "Whopper."

  • At least the one close to us.

  • That's what you get.

  • Oh, and just a note, when you say, "Whopper,"

  • you do not get cheese.

  • Right.

  • It's just Whopper.

  • Which is quite a disappointment.

  • If you forget to say, "Whopper with cheese."

  • But it also influences things.

  • It does, it's less calories.

  • I mean, that's pretty clear.

  • Because when you say, "Big Mac," it does have cheese.

  • It comes with two cheeses.

  • Two cheeses?

  • - [Link] Two slices of cheese.

  • - [Rhett] No, it doesn't.

  • What?

  • The top doesn't have cheese, man.

  • You've been missing out.

  • You misunderstanding a Big Mac all these years,

  • unless they've made a mistake.

  • No, they be givin' me extra cheese.

  • (laughing)

  • Alright, now I'm just thinking, right off the bat,

  • that a Whopper's bigger, more calories.

  • But a Big Mac's taller.

  • Who cares?

  • Which one's more volume?

  • Tallness has nothin' to do with calories, Rhett.

  • Only bigness.

  • I can eat more calories, and I'm tall.

  • Got a hangy-out pickle, there.

  • Now, I've got a sticker with my face on it

  • that represents what I'm voting for

  • as the unhealthiest.

  • Excuse me for talking with my mouth full,

  • but we ain't got time to chew. (chuckles)

  • Here.

  • I'm just going to swallow this whole.

  • Let me get a bite of that Whopper.

  • (hard swallowing)

  • This will be my side of the Whopper.

  • My side of the whopper.

  • My favorite book growing up was My Side of the Mountain.

  • So, I am saying that the Whopper

  • has more calories based on bigness alone,

  • and I'm giving you the advantage of going second.

  • Link, I usually don't trust you, but you're right.

  • - [Link] Let's move on to fat.

  • - [Rhett] There's a lot of mayonnaise on this.

  • I love a Big Mac.

  • I'm not gonna hate on the Whopper,

  • but when cheese is missing, I'm forlorn.

  • Hold on!

  • Hold on!

  • You compromised--

  • Listen, the whole point was to pick a side.

  • You just went on the same side.

  • Now I've got the either side, too.

  • I forgot.

  • No more Big Mac for you.

  • Now, I don't want the advantage

  • of you going second the second time,

  • so go ahead and vote.

  • What do you think has more fat?

  • And I think the secret, to me, as you vote,

  • is they like to put a lot of mayonnaise on a Whopper.

  • I just said that, and that's why I'm voting Whopper.

  • Oh, you said that?

  • Yeah.

  • Oh, dang it.

  • Changing my answer.

  • Big Mac has more fat.

  • Two words: special sauce.

  • Mmm-hmm.

  • Now, let's move on to sodium.

  • I am having a good time with you.

  • We should just hang out and eat burgers more often.

  • Yeah, man.

  • You don't have to hold my hand.

  • I'm not holding your hand.

  • I'm giving you a celebratory grip, man.

  • But it was kind of weird.

  • (laughing)

  • It's like, that's not how I want to celebrate with you.

  • I mean, a fist bump--

  • I didn't even get a bite out of it, man.

  • Mmm.

  • The charbroiled nature of the Whopper tries

  • to fool you into thinking that there's no salt in it,

  • because charbroil cancels out sodium.

  • I taste more salt in the Big Mac.

  • Don't be fooled by the charbroil, Rhett.

  • It's got a tanginess to it.

  • Boy, they're both good, though.

  • Oh, they're both so good.

  • I should eat more of this.

  • That's what I've learned today,

  • that I should just have more of both of these,

  • (Link laughing)

  • because I'm happy right now.

  • Alright, so, in summery, you are saying

  • that the Whopper is overall more unhealthy.

  • Well, so are you. (laughs)

  • And so am I.

  • Alright, so let's reveal, category by category.

  • First, calories.

  • Which one is more unhealthy?

  • (timpani ringing)

  • Wow. The Whopper.

  • The Whopper.

  • We were right.

  • OK, so we're both correct. (claps)

  • Now, fat.

  • (timpani ringing)

  • Eh, wow. Oh, the Whopper.

  • By a whopping margin.

  • You're taking the lead.

  • And sodium?

  • And sodium?

  • Whoa!

  • It's caught neck and neck.

  • It is more unhealthy in every way.

  • Twenty grams.

  • So, Rhett, I want to congratulate you.

  • I want to congratulate you, Link.

  • Let's have a burger.

  • I want you to have both of 'em.

  • You earned it.

  • And, click through to find out how you can turn

  • your pants into a spa.

  • You love to say it, and now your coffee will, too,

  • with this Boiled for Safety mug,

  • available at mythical.store.
