It sounds like a dream doesn’t it?
Get paid to eat delicious food. You’ll just need to do it in front of a camera.
In Kinoshita Yuka’s case, the lifestyle is even more dreamy because she doesn’t put on a single bit of weight.
We’re not sure what’s so entertaining about watching other people eat copious amounts of food on camera, but these women have caught on quick.
Kinoshita has a following of three million people, amassing 1.3 billion views on her channel, while Trisha has over three million subscribers.
So before you run off to get a camera and 99 chicken nuggets from McDonald’s, consider what makes these videos so successful.
It’s easy to see why Kinoshita is so popular.
The mind boggles when you consider that she regularly eats over 10,000 calories for each of her videos. Some of these include eating 62 (out of 100) hamburgers, 3kg of instant noodles, and ten double cheese burgers, ten teriyaki burgers, and ten pies, consisting of 13,552 calories in total.
As is common with anything to do with women’s bodies, people like to weigh in on Kinoshita’s dietary habits, commenting on her health and regularly asking how much she weighs.
But Kinoshita, from Japan, has confirmed she is in perfect health, taking medical exams every year. She says she weighs ’40 something KG’ (which is just over six stone).
Please don’t try eating the same amounts of food unless you have the same condition as Kinoshita. Kinoshita is lucky enough to have a stomach that can expand 66 times more than the average person, meaning she can eat bucket loads of food without feeling full.
At least in Trisha’s case, we know she just likes eating semi regular portions of food for her Eat With Me show.
The American internet personality often films herself eating from popular fast food eateries while talking to viewers.
Like Kinoshita, she takes part in mukbang; online videos in which presenters eat large quantities of food.
The singer and actress gets almost a million views on such videos, with loads commenting on how pretty she looks, and/or worrying about her health.
Considering that YouTube also pays people with more than 10,000 followers, the two must be raking in all the cash.
Mukbang videos seem all the rage on YouTube but if you take a quick scroll, you’ll see that majority of videos are of women eating.
Is it telling that there is a huge market for watching women do something as banal as eating?
Watching girls binge eat could be a fetish for some.
It certainly has gained popularity in South Korea where young women are paid thousands of pounds if multiple viewers tune in to watch them gorge.
Another reason why the videos are so popular may be because they help people feel like they’re not alone, especially when they’re eating.

Just watching someone else eat while you do the same can make it feel like you have company – and the fact that YouTubers often film themselves in their bedrooms or sitting rooms, makes us feel like we’re invited to their private spaces. That adds an extra layer of intimacy.
Ultimately though, it feeds (literally) into the culture of seeing women and women’s bodies and lives as a spectacle.
Even though these women are doing it by choice, they know there is a profitable market for it. And that’s just another way that women’s bodies are a means to an end for male satisfaction.
