American Randy Santel demolished the Kirkton Inn’s Man v Food Challenge – Scotland’s biggest burger, boasting SEVEN six-ounce burgers complete with bacon and cheese.

When you add the chips, onion rings and salad, it adds up to five and a half pounds of punishing protein and all-consuming carbs – and an unbelievable 8,300 calories!

However, that didn’t faze Randy who finished his huge plateful well inside the one hour time limit.

Kirkton Inn owner Drew Ruthven couldn’t believe the ease in which the challenge was finally completed.

He said: “He absolutely demolished it; he is a professional eater and it showed.”
