Blessing in disguise right here, folks. But not in the conventional sense that he'll see the light and right his own life through diet and exercise. What I'm saying is, competition is fierce to get on the "Biggest Loser" ranch and there is no better way to push your resume to the head of the pack (in this case, herd) than by having your heart nearly explode in a very public way. And at a restaurant called the Heart Attack Grill, no less. So poetic the show's producers can't possibly deny this unnamed slob a slot. Provided he wants to live, of course. For all we know he intended this 6,000 calorie burger to be his swan song.
According to Fox 5 Vegas:
"He was having the sweats and shaking," said ‘Nurse' Bridgett, who was working at the restaurant when the man in his 40s began experiencing chest pains.
"Doctor" Jon Basso, who opened the infamous restaurant in October, told FOX5 at first he thought it was a joke.
The restaurant is known for not holding back on the food it serves. The menu includes items like Flatliner Fries, and Bypass Burgers. A meal can easily exceed 8,000 calories.
The gentleman who suffered the heart attack was in the middle of eating a Triple Bypass burger when he began experiencing the symptoms.
The staff at the Heart Attack Grill willingly glorifies bad health. If you weigh over 350 pounds, you eat for free. And on Saturday night, Basso saw the other side. "I actually felt horrible for the gentleman because the tourists were taking photos of him as if it were some type of stunt. Even with our own morbid sense of humor, we would never pull a stunt like that," he said.
"It says right on the door, it's hazardous to your health," diner CJ Beeman pointed out.
Some a**hole even took a video of the guy getting carted out of the Las Vegas restaurant. Watch it, if you're into that sort of thing.
