‘Everyone’s saying my arteries are going to clog up. Don’t worry about it! She’ll be right. My hearts been through a fair bit. In the last 10 years, I’ve been training for this,’ he said.
A regular Zinger Box costs $11.45, meaning that Mr Murphy will have spent more than $1,145 on fried chicken meals by the end of the challenge.

In his videos, Mr Murphy frequently licks his Zinger Burger and Wicked Wings before eating them.
He also ‘stitches’ and ‘duets’ his videos with other TikTokers, which are different ways of connecting different videos to create a new one.
On Day 44 of the challenge, he stitched his video with another TikToker who was showing how to make a homemade Zinger Burgers – but Mr Murphy did not approve.
‘No f***ing fake s**t here, mate! It you want to pretend to make a Zinger Burger, just get one, yeah?’ he said in the video, before eating his own.
While Mr Murphy mainly likes to joke around, he also raises awareness about mental health and encourages his 7,000 followers to check on mates.

After followers offered to pay for his Zinger Boxes, Mr Murphy said they should donate money to the Black Dog Institute, which is the only medical research institute in Australia dedicated to researching mental health.
‘I don’t want people sending me money for food when there’s people out there that need money for food more than I do,’ he said.
‘My good mate Dools has a Black Dog Institute page set up for his mullet he’s growing. If you donate to there, take a screenshot, send me a private message with what ever you want.
‘F***ing shove a drumstick up your a**e, whatever your f***ing request is, we’ll go through it. If it’s appropriate, I’ll do it. If not, f**k it, you donated to a good cause.’
