The Big Texan -- Amarillo Texas The Challenge: Eat a 72-ounce steak, salad, shrimp cocktail, baked potato, and roll in under an hour.Price: $54 Prize: You get the meal for freeDetails: In the more than 40 years since the challenge began, more than 37,000 people have attempted it, according to the restaurant's Web site. Nearly 6,200 have succeeded, about one of every six. Far more men try than woman, says owner Bobby Lee, but about half the women who do start, finish. "It's not an ego thing with women," says Lee. The oldest to eat the meal was a 69-year-old grandmother and the youngest, an 11-year-old boy. Former major league pitcher Frank Pastore still holds the speed record at under 10 minutes.
