And the 20-year-old, didn’t stop there, finishing off another five of the three-inch Yorkshire puddings to ensure nothing went to waste.

Kyle, who appeared in n Channel 4 show Battle of the Super Eaters: 3000 Calories a Minute, on Thursday, June 13, travelled to Darlington to take part in the challenge held at The Buck Inn.


Kyle Gibson has completed a new challenge.

Kyle, who works as a chef at the Wild Boar Wetherspoon in Houghton, said his effort saw him take first place, with the second place contestant managing 12 Yorkshire puddings.

He said: “The contest was great and I really enjoyed taking part in it.

“I found it hard to get into a rhythm at the start as they are weird to eat but after the first minute I got into it.

“I plan on doing loads more contests in the future.”

But Kyle is no stranger to warming up ahead of a challenge, with the super eater known to ‘train’ his stomach by having a large meal 16 to 24 hours before.

Kyle said: “Before the challenge my sponsor said; ‘lets go through the McDonald’s drive-thru and order 30 cheese burgers and some chips for a photo’.

“I didn’t want to waste any, so I thought I would do a challenge there and then to eat as much as I could in two minutes.

“I managed to eat five cheese burgers and gave the rest of them to the staff.”
