James is eleven years old and weighs 182 pounds. A good natured red head, he dreams of being a professional wrestler. His favorite food is fryburgers--hamburger with fries on top. The ingredients for a perfect popcorn? His mom says two sticks of butter in an average batch of popcorn.
James joins the cast of Shaq's Big Challenge, a reality TV series which aims to promote healthier options for the American youth. He joins five other kids who are to be transformed into healthier individuals who know how to choose healthier food and lifestyle options. Shaquille O'Neal, together with his team of professional nutritionists and trainers, are to guide these young kids through the gradual change to better health options.
