Jason Derulo just hit a major milestone on TikTok, so he wanted to celebrate in a major way.
To mark hitting 22 million followers on the music-driven social media platform, the music star decided he'd attempt to eat 22 burgers in two hours — and then filmed it to show his fans how much he loves them. "I ate 22 burgers for 22 Million on tiktok 😳🤮," he captioned his TikTok video when he posted it on Instagram on June 10.
However, the eating contest didn't go exactly how Jason hoped: He got sick from eating so much and ultimately fell just two burgers short of his goal.
He began his post with a clip of himself thanking everyone. "Thank ya'll so much for 22 million," Jason says. "This time instead of making a milly mil, I'm gonna eat a milly mil." He then tells his friend, "Ordered 22 burgers right now — I'm gonna eat it within two hours." He then shows himself taking delivery of the burgers, which are dressed with lettuce and tomato, then stacks them up on a table before declaring, "Let's get started!"
A time-lapse video shows him eating the burgers, squeezing ketchup on them and telling his dog he's not going to share. "Nine down. I need a little break man, I'm starting to feel crazy," he says. Then 20 minutes later, Jason declares, "We're back from the break. Got 13 left to go, we can do it!" but soon after stops, mumbles, "I think I'm gonna throw up" and runs to the bathroom as the camera follows him and a friend shouts, "get some water!"
After recovering from vomiting, Jason admits, "I don't know if I can do this," but his friend tells him, "You cannot give up with three left!" Jason then quips, "I built another stomach" before chowing down again, only to stop two burgers short of his goal after feeling nauseous again.
"I know I only ate 20 burgers. It's 22 million followers," Jason tells the camera before deciding, "If 2 million of ya'll unfollow me, I'll understand."
