When thinking about a fast food burger joint, what do you think of? One of the top spots that usually comes to mind is Burger King. Like hello, burger is literally in the name! The Whopper is the Burger King staple. The fast food spot even categorizes it as “America’s Favorite Burger” based on a nationwide survey of 4,014 adults 18 or older from last May. It’s also on our list of the 23 best fast food burgers. Just in case you don’t know what a Whopper is, it’s a flame-grilled beef patty topped with tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, pickles, and white onions on a toasted sesame seed bun. If this doesn’t sound like your vibe, what about creating your own Whopper? No seriously, you can. Burger King’s Million Dollar Whopper Contest is back. and the burger joint wants you to think of the next Whopper. You can even get a million dollars for it.

How to enter Burger King’s Million Dollar Whopper Contest

Starting today (February 5) until March 17, burger aficionados can submit their ideas to the contest, including which ingredients they feel should top the patty. Burger King has even revamped its Instagram for this contest, with six posts with some images of “not not AI-generated” burgers. 

The reward? One million dollars (!!!) and seeing your idea come to life across all U.S. Burger King menus.

To enter, visit the Million Dollar Whopper contest on Burger King’s website or the burger chain app to submit your Whopper creation idea. On the website, click “Create Your Whopper Entry,” where contestants have to follow a series of prompts and add up to eight toppings to their entry. After submitting, contestants will see an A.I. preview of their creation and add a personalized A.I.-generated jingle which can be downloaded and shared across social media platforms.

Three creations will be selected and those finalists will be brought to Burger King headquarters in Miami to bring their Whoppers to life (and probably to make sure the Whopper even tastes good). The three burgers will then be offered for a limited time for diners to vote for their favorite Million Dollar Whopper idea.

And like all contests, the finalist with the most votes wins!

Burger King also notes that with the first entry, contestants will earn a free whopper with a dollar purchase. This will apply to participating U.S. Burger King locations and redeemable in the BK App.   

What were past Burger King’s Million Dollar Whopper winners?

Some past Whoppers include:

The Ghost Pepper Whopper’s toppings were melty spicy queso, crispy jalapeños, bacon, and ghost pepper cheese on a toasted orange bun topped with black sesame seeds.

The Angry Whopper is topped with thick-cut bacon, American cheese, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, angry onion petals, jalapeños, creamy mayonnaise, and spicy angry sauce.

The Candied Bacon Whopper features sweet bacon jam, lettuce, tomato, crispy onions, garlic aioli, and candied bacon toppings.

But if that doesn’t spark any inspiration, Burger King does have over 200,000 Whopper combinations. I’m not saying to test all of them, but maybe some for science purposes.
