Matt Stonie, the 2015 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Champion and Peeps Eating World Record holder, has nearly 12 million subscribers follow his competitive eating videos and challenges on YouTube. Over the last few years, Stonie posted astonishing videos of himself eating ridiculous amounts of food like spicy buffalo chicken wings, French fries, ice cream sundaes, In-N-Out Burger, chicken curry, 125 cupcakes, and 100 waffles.
Stonie, 28, already had a fervent following on YouTube before he upset Joey Chestnut 62-60, at the 2015 Nathan’s Hot Dog Contest in Coney Island, Brooklyn. After his Nathan’s victory, Stonie’s YouTube channel blew up.
Stonie, also known as “Megatoad”, grew up in San Jose, California. He first made a name for himself as the high school kid who crushed the “all you can eat” option at Olive Garden. He posted his exploits to YouTube and quickly developed a following.

“Matt has been someone I’ve had my eye on for a while as he’s been consistently doing crazy numbers for years,” said manager Nick Brotman. “After getting to know him it was a great match.

With Stonie out of this year’s Nathan’s event, we compiled several of our favorite Matt Stonie eating videos.

In Stonie’s most recent video, he inhaled 10 cans of fruit cocktail or 1.2 gallons worth in under five minutes.
Ten pounds of nachos? No problemo. Stonie wanted to support his home team, the San Francisco 49ers, in Super Bowl 54 with a special eating challenge video. Stonie went super big for a Super Bowl Nachos Challenge (10,000 calories), that also included chicken wings, bacon, and potato skins.
How fast can you eat an Eggo Waffle? How about ten? Or an even 100? Stonie passed the 100 Eggo Waffle Challenge on multiple occasions. During his first successful run in 2013, he ate 100 waffle in 36 minutes. In 2019, Stonie smashed his old record by 21 minutes.

Who doesn’t love engaging in eating prop bets with your friends? Stonie saw that former Colts punter Pat McAfee attempted to win $3,500 in a McDonald’s 50,000 calories eating challenge. Stonie obliterated the challenge in under nine minutes after he devoured four Double Quarter Pounders with cheese, two large fries, 30 nuggets, and four diet cokes.
Who doesn’t love cupcakes? How about 125 cupcakes? Stonie vacuumed up 12,000 calories worth of cupcakes with sprinkles included. He had so many cupcakes, he could not fit all 125 within the camera frame.
Two years ago, Stonie’s followers were treated with “Matt Stonie vs Massive Slice of Pizza”, which recently passed 38 million views. He cut out a traditional NYC slice out of a 28-inch pizza. It took less than nine minutes before the giant slice vanished.
