Ryan Welch literally bit off more than he could chew on Tuesday night when he attempted the Safe House's new Mission Impossible OOMG Challenge. The challenge required him to consume 15 cheeseburgers, one pound of cheese curds and 60 ounces of amber lager beer in one hour.
Welch polished off almost 14 of the patties, about half of the curds and a third of the beer before he vomited and withdrew from the contest after 45 minutes of continuous consuming.
"I'm OK!" Welch said immediately after the challenge. "I just need to breathe and eat some lettuce."
The Mission Impossible OOMG Challenge is offered every Tuesday at the Safe House. The cost is $50, but the meal is free if devoured within 60 minutes. According to the Safe House staff, the "mission" has been accomplished at the Chicago-based Safe House, but is yet to happen in Milwaukee after three attempts.
