Eating is essential to all living creatures, and that includes us humans.. Life is simple: you buy food to eat. Sometimes, you are willing to spend too much on food, especially when it is tasty.
But how would you feel if it were the other way around? What if you get paid for eating food? Now that would be something most of us would dream of. Not only is your stomach full, but your pockets as well!
Bethany Gaskin is living that dream. She is earning millions from Youtube as a mukbang star eating giant crab legs.
“On her two YouTube channels, Bloveslife and BlovesASMR Eating Her Way, Mrs. Gaskin chats up her audience while eating king crab legs, mussels, lobster tails, hard-boiled eggs and roasted red potatoes. The videos, produced in her Cincinnati home, have made her a millionaire, she said. But getting into the business wasn’t about money; mukbang was more of a calling than a vocation.”
