SINGAPORE - Have you ever been so hungry you could eat a horse? For rising YouTube star Zermatt Neo, the idiom is probably not as far fetched as it is for most people.
The young man, who has taken part in many eating competitions, recently took up a challenge to devour a gigantic plate of chicken rice that weighed a whopping 4 kg.
Photos of him eating and holding the plate of chicken rice were posted on the Food League Singapore Facebook page and have been shared over 4,300 times in two days.
But if you thought having an appetite for 10 plates of chicken rice was shocking, wait till you see what other types of food Zermatt has eaten in one sitting.
Videos on his YouTube page show him wolfing down massive portions of various food items such as 150 sticks of satay, 100 gyozas, 55 bowls of noodles and 50 chicken wings. And the most astonishing thing is that he completes most of these challenges within a 10- to 15-minute timeframe.
In one video, he even takes on what he calls an 'upsized version of the KFC mega bundle meal'. In this 10,316-calorie meal, he ate a total of 20 pieces of fried chicken, 8 cups of whipped potato, 12 egg tarts, 24 chicken nuggets and a large soda.
Despite all this eating, the competitive eater has managed to keep fit and appears to have a slim and toned physique.
This seems to also be the case for famous Japanese competitive eater Yuka Kinoshita. The slim food lover shot to fame after posting YouTube videos of herself eating large amounts of food.
She has amassed a following of close to 860,000 subscribers on YouTube, and her videos often reach 100,000 views in less than a day.
Some of her most notable challenges include a 5 kg bowl of curry rice, 100 slices of bread, 39 doughnuts and a 11,376-calorie KFC meal.
