There are only a handful of people who are famous for eating. Eating is not considered much of a sport as it helps in gaining weight rather than losing it. But there are still competitive eaters who eat a ton of food in a really short amount of time. And amongst the most famous competitive eaters in the world is Matt Stonie who holds multiple world records for competitive eating.
He is best known for participating and winning several Major League Eating Events. The 27-year-old has already won several titles as well as awards. The biggest award that he has won till date is the award for second-best MLE eater in the world. He won the award in the year 2015. And since then has worked very hard on improving his eating skills. He is keen to hit the number one spot in eating and he considers that to be his life goal.
His repertoire as an eater is pretty impressive as he holds eight world records for competitive eating. The most impressive achievement that he has held is the one where he ate a five-pound birthday cake in less than five minutes. Many have tried to reach that mark but everyone has failed. Even competitive eaters have had a hard time getting close to that mark.
The 27-year-old has also made a ton of money through eating. It’s been a lot of years since he started eating competitively and his appetite for success only gets closer with each passing day. It is estimated that his net worth is somewhere in the neighborhood of $700,000. He makes most of that money through competitions that he attends and there are a lot of those. He also makes quite a bit of money through television as well as commercials.
