My take is that the doritos dude would have, ultimately, similar muscle but significantly more fat.
Im going with WAY less muscle.
The fact is that cheap snack foods have almost no protein, no protein gets you no muscle.
Now a guy who is eating double cheese burgers VS a guy who eats grilled chicken breasts will be a better example of nearly same muscle content with bodyfat being the big difference.
Diet isn't everything, but it is HUGE.
In this (bodybuilding) lifestyle only an idiot would not consider making healthy eating choices. People always over think it only to give up because they came to the conclusion its to hard, when its amazingly simple.
I live like a damn caveman: if it doesn't bleed or grow on a tree, Im not going to eat it.
