Man who’s nearly drank 2,000 pints in 200 days had to send proof after people raised the same question

Man who’s nearly drank 2,000 pints in 200 days had to send proof after people raised the same question

Jon May has been on an epic pint-drinking mission

A 25-year-old lad has been on the ultimate beer-drinking quest.

Jon May challenged himself to drink 2,000 pints in 200 days and is now on the mega day 199.

With a whopping 1,989 pints already guzzled down, the Guildford man has been documenting his mission on TikTok with thousands of Brits following his trips down to the pub.

We do need to point out that you definitely shouldn't drink this much beer – it’s definitely not recommended by any health professionals out there.

Anyway, Jon originally planned to swig ten pints a day on average but unsurprisingly, had to make a few tweaks.

I mean give me two pints on a good day and you won’t have me doing maths.

He explained yesterday (18 October) that he’s got 16 pints left to drink over the next three days, and is planning to get down nine on his final day, tomorrow.

What a final challenge day at the pub that’s going to be.

But as all great gladiators do, Jon has had his doubters. Those trying to put a downer on his mission. Denying his commitment, his determination, his drive to down 2,000 pints.

One previously commented on his video to say: “Still no proof of these pints.”

And Jon had a salute-worthy response.

With many wanting proof of his pints, he shared a video with the comment attached, casually sipping on what looks like a pint of cider.

Although some claim ‘cider don’t count’, at the end of the day, it’s still a ‘pint’. So surely, that still counts.

Loyal followers of Jon’s pint pilgrimage backed him up: “Don’t worry Jon we believed you.”

Meanwhile, others defend him from haters in the comments as they wrote: “He goes live all the time when out drinking.”

Some even said: “Give this man a knighthood," with another writing: “More phenomenal than that bloke running the length of Africa.”

In an update today, Jon announced he has just 11 pints left today and now plans on saving ten for tomorrow.

He also revealed: “We have a drank a grand total of 361,998 calories, which is an average of 1,828.27 calories every single day.

“And we have spent £7,956 which is £40.18 every day for the 198 days so yeah, we are absolutely smashing it.”

Quite the opposite of a sober October for Jon.

For some health and safety context, the NHS recommends that people drink no more than 14 units per week, which is equivalent to around six pints of four percent lager. It also recommends that those 14 units are spread out evenly over three or more days.
