Fifth Third Burger Featured On National TV Again!
The ever popular Fifth Third Burger from the West Michigan Whitecaps will be featured on the January 22 episode of the Food Network show "Unwrapped". The show is hosted by Marc Summers and shows how all sorts of different foods are made.
The episode featuring the enormous burger is dedicated to "Game Day Goodies" and will air at 9 p.m. It was filmed this past fall during the Rockford vs. Muskegon football game. The footage includes showing how the burger is made and some people attempting the challenge of eating the whole thing during the span of one game.
The Fifth Third Burger made its debut at the beginning of the Whitecaps' 2009 season. Since then, 3,253 burgers have been served and 761 people have attempted the challenge. Only 483 people have finished the challenge, earning them a spot on the wall in the challenge area and a commemorative t-shirt.
