Matt Stonie signs with Night Media

Business Insider reports that Matt Stonie has signed with Night Media for exclusive representation and will be managed by Nick Brotman. Other Night Media social media personalities are Mr. Beast and neekolul, famed for her “OK Boomer” video. Brotman intends to pivot his client away from YouTube:

“Matt has been someone I’ve had my eye on for a while as he’s been consistently doing crazy numbers for years,” Brotman told Business Insider. “After getting to know him it was a great match. He’s interested in branching out from just creating YouTube content, which aligns with our philosophy of creating larger businesses around our clients’ influence.”

We will see how this deal affects Matt’s relationship with Major League Eating. Expulsion from the top 50 has been the traditional indication that a signee has fallen afoul of the MLE contract. Matt currently remains ranked at #3.

Ringer.com on NFL offensive linemen diets

Ringer.com has an article about diets NFL linemen eat to gain weight for football.

Bartch is a big guy, 6-foot-6 with a flowing mane of auburn-colored locks, but by his admission he was “never a tubby kid” growing up. Packing on that much weight to pursue his dream job was an arduous process; his days were full of rigorous workouts and endless eating sessions, so Bartch devised a hack. The summer after his sophomore year, he streamlined his breakfast. Instead of eating a giant meal with a host of individual items, Bartch combined them into a smoothie consisting of seven scrambled eggs, a tub of cottage cheese, grits, peanut butter, a banana, and Gatorade. He drank that four days a week, and it helped him grow from 250 pounds to 276 by the time school started again. The way he saw it, it was just a way to cut down on all that chewing. When this year’s combine rolled around, it had been years since he’d consumed the shake, and he hadn’t thought much about it.
