Chris is an eleven year old boy who weighs 206 pounds. He is a prankster who just can't resist his mom's Cuban cooking. He can't even control his portions. Chris wants to be a professional Yankee one day, and has already succeeded in being the butt of jokes among other kids due to his weight.
Chris joins five other kids in Shaq's Big Challenge, a show whose mission is to promote healthier lifestyle choices for the American youth. Shaquille O'Neal hosts the show, and is joined by his team of professional nutritionalists and trainers who will help the kids in their gradual change towards a healthier lifestyle.
