FOND DU LAC - McDonald's Big Macs are beloved by millions, but no one enjoys the iconic burger more than Don Gorske. 

Gorske REALLY likes Big Macs.  He's been eating them daily for over 40 years.

"I look forward to them every day," Gorske told me.  "My first was May 31st, 1972."

Gorske recently concsumed his 27,000th Big Mac. 

"(Eating the burgers) calms me down," he said.  "When I get hyper my wife says, 'why don't you eat a Big Mac?'"

Don gave me a tour of his home and showed off his Big Mac Wall of Fame:



Gorske's hamburger habit has made him famous (making appearances on national talk shows and even movies).

Gorske won't eat any other burger.  I asked him if he'd eat a Whopper and he said no. 

Only Big Macs.  Today, tomorrow, and forever.

"My wife jokes that once she has to put them in a blender, it's over," Gorske laughed.
