She may have a tiny frame, but she has a big appetite.

Meet competitive eater Molly Schuyler. Raised in Minnesota, this 120-pound mom of four recently discovered that she has a knack for putting away mountains of food.

“(It’s) an unexplained phenomenon; I was just born that way. I started doing this about a year ago, and I guess it’s like a stupid human trick,” she said in an interview with KPTV-TV.

Schuyler, who also works as a waitress, traveled all the way to Portland, Ore., Thursday to showcase her skills at the Mad Greek Deli.

The deli has a simple challenge (if you have a big stomach): Down an enormous 12-pound sandwich, a pound of fries, and a large soda in one hour and win a cash prize.

For Schuyler, it was a cinch.

“With five minutes left on the clock, she took her final bite and finished off the 12-pound sandwich. It took her 54 minutes, and she became the fastest – and only – woman to eat the giant sandwich,” KPTV-TV reported, adding that the competitive eater walked away with the $650 prize for her efforts.

Fifty-four minutes. Again, Schuyler’s not entirely sure where she gets her talent.

“We did that so much as kids, we kind of battled it out,” she said, recalling in a recent interview going to buffets with her siblings and seeing who could down the most food. “We’ve always ate big.”

But perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that Schuyler can beat the Mad Greek Deli challenge. After all, this is the same woman who can down nine-pounds of cottage cheese in less than two minutes.
