Mr Gordon was selected for his ‘absolute confidence in his ability’ and ‘readiness to put his insatiable appetite to the test’.

Although he is thrilled with the job offer, it will be no easy task. 

Commencing in his hometown of Sydney, Mr Gordon will begin on Monday at Cantina Mexican where he will tackle a burrito weighing in at more than a kilogram.

He will be expected to devour the meat, salad and jalapeno filled burrito in a Mexican food stand off before heading to Melbourne the following day and taking on the daunting burger task at Misty’s Diner.

‘I’m definitely the best person for it – I watch Man vs Food religiously and take to the gym more than the average bloke to make sure I can eat insane amounts of food in one sitting,’ he said. 

‘Eating food is what I’m good at – simple as that! I’ve tackled many colossal dinner plates but but I may have bitten off more than I can chew with this challenge. I’m particularly worried about the 36 slices of pizza, that’ll be tough.’
