If you thought you've eaten a lot this holiday season, wait until you hear how much food one competitive eater recently took down in a 20-minute span.

Jamie McDonald, a 36-year-old nicknamed "The Bear," set out to conquer Denny's new Hobbit-inspired menu. That's an astounding 11 dishes, including the likes of the "Ring Burger," "Gandolf's Gobble Melt" and much more.

McDonald timed himself on an iPad, which he placed above his left shoulder. This menu certainly is not meant to be eaten in one sitting, and definitely not in 20 minutes. But no matter, as McDonald took it all down in less time than it takes to watch a rerun of Seinfeld.

The Daily Mail calculated that, in total, the meal added up to 8,610 calories, 426 grams of fat, 775 carbs and 2,530 milligrams of cholesterol.

Yikes.

After that monster of a meal, McDonald might want to try out a new workout regimen or even consider fasting.

The Coaches Trophy isn't the only thing riding on the upcoming game between Notre Dame and Alabama.

There are some ribs and chocolate on the line as well.

The mayors of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and South Bend, Indiana, where the universities are located, have placed a bet on the game.

If Alabama wins, Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox will make a donation to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of St. Joseph County and send a slab of Dreamland ribs to South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

If Notre Dame wins, Buttigieg will make a donation to Tuscaloosa's Storm Recovery Fund and send Maddox a box of South Bend Chocolate Co. chocolates.

"Alabama and Notre Dame have a storied tradition in football," Maddox said in a statement. "Tuscaloosa and South Bend are alike in their love for their respective teams, and the people of our cities are lifted when our teams do well. A BCS championship game appearance puts our cities in a national spotlight and showcases the resiliency and strength of our communities."

Maddox has already won his city a donation on a wager this year, as Auburn Mayor Bill Ham wrote a check to the Storm Recovery Fund after Alabama defeated the Tigers in the Iron Bowl.
