Darren Rovell Takes on the Fifth Third Burger

We've written a couple of times about the massive Fifth Third Burger that will be offered at West Michigan Whitecaps games this season, a slab of ballpark food that's already becoming le-gen... wait for it... dary. (And please take notice that the particular ingredients have changed. The incarnation that's now being promoted actually seems less disgusting. Maybe someone stepped in and said, "Whoa! Do you want to kill somebody? Take the Spam off that thing!")

But now, we have actual video evidence of someone eating the thing. Well, at least he took a bite or two of the burger. (Maybe we'll have to wait for Adam Richman to truly take this monstrosity on for "Man vs. Food.") I figured at least one or two people tried it, for quality control purposes or whatever, but this man was told he's the very first. (I was hoping it would be Take 75 North's Matt Wallace.)

Ladies and gentleman, CNBC's Darren Rovell.

If Rovell was trying to impress Erin Burnett, I think he may have failed. Or maybe she digs that sort of thing. It was kind of hard to tell, though she didn't seem as revolted as one might expect. I'm also surprised Jim Cramer didn't try to tear into that thing himself. Maybe he did, after Rovell was done talking about it.

You can see more at Rovell's blog.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I might be ready to become a vegetarian. (Or watch Padma Lakshmi eat a big burger instead.)
