Food lover James had to devour the $60 (£34) burger, which weighs 5kg, in under 30 minutes to complete the challenge.

James demolished the monster burger in just 25 minutes and 37 seconds – which made him the first to beat the clock and earn a place on the 'Legends Board' at the pub.
Talking about the triumph on it's Facebook, The Kitchener Hotel wrote: "Our Khartoum Hotel Burger Challenge has attracted an absolutely amazing amount of interest not only locally but nationally and globally since we launched it onto market.
"Challengers, and there have been 55, have come from a very wide area to take it on with varying results.
"We have said from day one that it is a challenge and there to be beaten and that out there is Super Burger Muncher/Destroyer that will do just that."
James has earned himself a tasty $650 (£363) in prize money for completing the challenge.
The overall prize money for the eventual winner had slowly been going up every time someone failed the challenge, meaning James earned himself a tasty $650 (£363) in prize money for his victory.
