    Sonya Thomas hold the chicken mcnugget record at MSG with 80 in 5 min in 2004 competing in NY Liberty halftime show with Tim Janus and Brian Seiken . All three would have easily broken his pathetic record . One hand behind the back means nothing

    In order to get a Guinness Record in eating you have to have a hand behind your back.

    you gotta be a total fuckin moron or the furniture in your head was arranged in the wrong places for you to eat lighbulbs . Either that or YT is paying you mucho $$ to attempt a retard brain stunt like that. Do you have any idea how dangerous that is? First off you have to hope and pray your teeth are able to grind up the glass into sandlike particles which will hopefully and I say hopefully with a capital H that it bypasses the gastric tract .

    jackass: They may have made LA Beast a lot in the past, but YouTube has significantly reduced the AdSense payments for small content creators to about 5 to 10% of what they were making. Some large creators too, since about the beginning of April, when the advertiser boycott began. Some creators have withheld or reduced their content, not wanting to give it away for free (e.g., Carmen Cincotti-where is the MLE corn video? and Darron Breeden-where is the South Side 6 video?). Other newbies are angry, since now they will have to go through a lengthy process and give away free content in order to even get monetized (it used to you could get monetized before you began). Many creators have dropped out of YouTube since they no longer can make a career of it. In the meantime, others keep on releasing premium content despite the lack of significant payment (e.g., Randy Santel, Nathan Figueroa, Ramsey Hilton, Killer Kennedy with the Carbo Cutie, Matt Stonie). They may partially supported by patreon and maybe gawk box, as well as few other sources. The advertisers and revenue may be gradually coming back to YouTube, but the full effect has not returned. It may never be the same, now that the big guys have taken over with YouTube Red and other shows from the broadcast networks and cable.

    Content creators will also have to be more careful. No more vomit shots like in the Pat Bertoletti, Dave Goldstein (the one with the 18 lb. burger: puke in and outside of the trash can and water spilled all over Marcos’s tray), Kevin Ross, Molly Schulyer, or LA Beast have had in their videos. Do it and your video will not be monetized. Many of Molly’s videos will not be monetized (if they ever were) because they are too gross, especially the pizza and burrito ones and the Fat Sal’s one. Though I am a competitive eater too, they gross me out big time. Likewise for some of Naader Reda’s and Wayne Algenio’s videos. Even some of Randy Santel’s videos are a little gross (he used to be a neat eater but becomes sloppy when time is running short and he has to use hands more).

    Here are some of the guidelines published by YouTube:


    “Content that is considered inappropriate for advertising
    Content that is considered “not advertiser-friendly” includes, but is not limited to:

    Sexually suggestive content, including partial nudity and sexual humor
    Violence, including display of serious injury and events related to violent extremism
    Inappropriate language, including harassment, profanity and vulgar language
    Promotion of drugs and regulated substances, including selling, use and abuse of such items
    Controversial or sensitive subjects and events, including subjects related to war, political conflicts, natural disasters and tragedies, even if graphic imagery is not shown
    If any of the above describes any portion of your video, then the video may not be approved for monetization. If monetization is approved, your video may not be eligible for all available ad formats. YouTube reserves the right to not monetize a video, as well as suspend monetization features on channels that repeatedly submit videos violating our policies.”

    Also, anything that is considered “sensational” may not be monetized. I can’t find where I read this though, but it is true. The advertises now have a checkbox option.

    11:21: That LA Beast video you linked too would not be monetized now most likely, since it is age restricted. Hence, there would no motivation to him to make that video, unless he wanted to use it as a stunt to grow his fan base, like when he ate a cactus at Wing Bowl.

    Also, didn’t Tiny Tim Rauscheder once eat chicken wing bones, or was that someone else? But he was just trying to be funny though during a contest. That is almost as bad as the light bulb. I think hyenas have been known to eat bone too. The cactus stunt is the next worse.

    i doubt most of the names you mentioned create YT videos for profit. Besides , their videos are lucky to accrue 700 or less hits. Furious Pete and Beast are probably the only names that made money off YT considering their videos average around the 500 thousand mark and beyond As far as earning money from YT i had a YT channel my videos were monetized i never saw one red cent . I am still uncertain as to how the system works. DoesYT write you a check in conjunction with how many hits your videos get? Every 100 thousand hits earn you $100 or am i wrong?

    A figure that has been announced is you make $1-$5 per 1,000 views. It depends on if the subscriber clicks advertiser links on the videos though. I never see ads though since I use Ad Blocker Plus. Google the subject and you will learn a lot. Matt Stonie, Furious Pete, and LA Beast easily make over $250,000 per year just on YouTube. Randy Santel paid for a 3 month European vacation for him and Mitch Dombrowski from his YT earnings. He admitted it himself here. He makes an estimated $25,000-$50,000 per year from YT. This was all before the advertiser boycott though. YT creators are now turning towards Patreon and Gawk Box to help them. There are other ways to make money like with ads from your own websites. Facebook also now monetizes videos.

    Also check out the the following networks:

    eBay Partner Network
    Amazon Associates Program
    Vibrant Media

    There are also other affiliate networks.

    The following American eaters have definitely made money off YouTube:

    Aaron Wakamatsu (Aaron’s Food Adventures)
    Max Carnage (Big Eaters Club)
    Randy Santel
    Kevin Strahle (LA Beast)
    Furious Pete Czerwinski
    Matt Stonie
    Nathan Figueora
    Strictly Dumpling

    Erik Lamkin does not count.

    Also Yuko Kinoshita from Japan.

    Pete might make closer to $500,000 annually. He has paid for trips to Asia and Europe from his earnings. I have seen plenty of young YouTubers pay for $100,000 cash for new GTR’s and new houses from their YT earnings with only 3 or 4 million subscribers (e.g., Tanner Fox, Faze Rug, FouseyTube, Wolfie Raps, Roman Atwood, Vitaly, etc.). Just search google:

    bought new house site:youtube.com

    Why do you think Matt Stonie cares less and less about his MLE earnings? Because YT pays (or paid) more. If he did, he would compete head-to-head more against Joey and Carmen to win contests.

  14. anonymous said

    May 9, 2017 @ 2:03 am

    Also forgot: I think many of the Max Carnage’s videos will not be monetized since he is just as bad as Molly on a grossness scale unless he changes his act. Great eater and great person but I think advertiser might shy away from it.

    And Damon Wells; I realize he is mostly retired, but if he ever wants to get monetized, his YT user name will have to change from “spraymucus.”

    Adam Moran and CLC might have to trim their beards too. Who wants to see food stuck in their beards while they are eating?

    anonymous 115am you are so full of fuckin shit its beyond belief Where do you come up with these figures $500k a year ? $250 k a year? If that were the case everyone on the face of this planet would start a YT channel. Pete or Kevin have yet to confirm what you falsely speculated. If there is any truth to your theory lets see an actual check made out to either of them by YT . Lets see yearly earnings documented on a spread sheet? What you are basically doing is speculating a bunch of false propaganda that has very little truth attached to it. Few thousand a month ? Maybe thats even pushing it . I highly doubt they bought homes or took lavish vacations all on account of YT . Please stop throwing around widely exaggerated numbers until you can back it up with facts.

    anonymous 1:23 you are an idiot. You must be jealous since you suck at eating. Those numbers are not wildly exaggerated. Read a little. Learn a little. Stop being so sheltered. People don’t get paid by check, dork, they get paid daily electronically. some creators have shown video screenshots of their payments from YouTube. If other top eaters put the time into it, they could be like Pete or Matt Stonie and make a living off YouTube. They choose not to for other reasons, like they already have a job or have other commitments or are not into video.



    Even small YouTubers with a few hundred thousand subscribers make around $300-$400 per video. I know; I’ve watched videos and folow a lot of people.

    anon 1:23 PM: yeah all those sites are wrong and what you say is totally correct. You are a god and all knowing. Why weren’t you here before?

    Stonie makes at least $4,000 per month doing videos, with just one release per week. That’s not unreasonable I have friends with way less subs who release daily and make $200-$500 per vid (when there was no boycott by advertisers). They could affford to buy all kinds of new camera equipment and travel to the US, Mexico, and Asia to make more videos.

    Here are Stonie’s earnings: https://socialblade.com/youtube/user/megatoadstonie

    Randy Santel, who is small-time, makes around $1,000 per month at least on YouTube, and he only releases a few times a week:

    1:23: The reason you can’t make a income on YT is because you have no eating talents and have not worked hard on their content like Randy, Matt, Nate, Max, etc. have. Success doesn’t come over night, but you can start making some money right away, or as soon as YouTube approves you. Well, most intelligent people can; you can’t though.

    May 11, 2017 @ 8:36 am

    I did a search under Social Blade for Brian Seiken’s YT channel:


    The estimate is about $3 a month. Maybe YT considers that too low to pay out, or maybe there are views but the people do not click the advertiser links. It’s hard to say.

  27. BS said

    May 11, 2017 @ 11:38 pm

    More than likely they never clicked the adds I assume. Honestly they can keep their $3 .I like the hits though YT basically put me out of biz. There was a time when I was making $500 a week selling my boxing and music videos on eBay from 1999 – 2004 . Once YT got its feet wet in that department I was done .90% of my catalog can be found on YT Sucks but gotta move on

    La Beast has not had an easy life. As early as 3rd grade he needed constant supervision out of concern he would put something in his mouth that would cause bodily harm . Hes been dumped by whiny bitchy women that cant put up with his wild lifestyle. He’s been sued by the Sheas for eating butter on youtube. He went to the ER more than once after several deadly failed stunts on YT , He nearly severed his toe doing a butter stunt in his mom kitchen, Hes been tackled and beaten up by a 370lb security guard then arrested after stealing a t – shirt in NYC and running around the block with it attempting to drown his sorrows after a busted up relationship . I think he be better off living a simple life like whacking off for a living

    LA Beast is the man just set a new Guinness world record most powdered doughnuts eaten 9 with no liquid and no lip licking . Two females dressed in suit and tie were there to oversee the challenge and present him with a plaque. MLE is looking pretty lame with their record holders I hope George Shea is watching this . He might regret releasing a legend from his organization

    The lip licking prohibition is hilarious. Guinness has a sense of humor. On the video, LA Beast sense his next record attempt will be to chug a bottle of maple syrup in under 10 seconds.

    Also, congrats to Beast and Seiken for doing such a great interview years ago despite the hostility between them.

  38. anonymous said

    May 14, 2017 @ 10:45 am

    I doubt there is any hostility between the both of them . Whatever happened it’s in the past . Seiken initiated the hate because he felt he was being ignored . I think he admired Beasts work and still does. Seiken would probably be more than happy to shake his hand and let bygones be bygones . Not sure if Beast feels the same

  39. anonymous said

    May 14, 2017 @ 3:22 pm

    eating the doughnuts is the easy part but the lip licking is the hard part because its a reflex action that has to be mastered similar to a nervous cough a nervous laugh or accidently spitting while your talking but those reflex actions are much easier to control

    Very good and mature attitude that Seiken has now. I’ve noticed this for the past six months or year(?). I hope it continues.

    I think the toilet seat video was taped prior to the Cheesesteak contest at Dorney Park in 2011? . After the contest Crazy Legs made an announcement that he swore off visiting Eatfeats and BB.com for the rest of his life. Whether he lived by that rule to this day remains to be seen but he bought or baked a carrot cake to commemorate that 1yr anniversary . Cake tasted like feces and semen Yeah it was that bad i think it was done on purpose

    When LA Beast goes about trying to set these records he seeks out bizarre stuff that Bertoletti Chestnut or Stonie wouldnt touch or might have a problem with because its of the requirements that differ from just stuffing you face with food. He realizes he is a pretty lousy eater so he has to resort to some sort of unique gimmick attached to the stunt like not being allowed to lick your lips after consuming 9 doughnuts . No real skill involved but does require practice. Chestnut would probably fall flat on his face licking his lips after doughnut 2

    One guy in the Beast live chat named Nighthawk said he had no friends. Beast gave him advice on joining a bowling or softball league to make friends . LA Beast is a very compassionate caring young man. He also mentioned that since the YT ad boycott he along with Pete and Stonie are making very little money putting out YT videos. Total waste of time in my opinion

  48. anonymous said

    The only stream i would follow is Stonie. His eating videos are inspiring and productive and he never comes off as a media whore . Nothing against Pete but his videos especially the eating videos have never inspired me to follow his exploits even though he keeps himself in good shape. . Hope he makes it through his cancer dilemma but videos depicting his chemo progress are downright depressing and should not be made public on YT. LA Beast is the worst of them all. His resume in the work sector is a minimum wage job working for Pepsi distribution and delivery. He only got the job because his dad worked for Pepsi . Watching someone eat glass, sand or thumbtacks is just plain stupid. He is only 33 yrs old Do something creative with your life. Go to law school become a teacher study medicine. His sister is a neuro surgeon . Why couldn’t he follow in her footsteps? If he had a brother he would probably end up just like him a total failure in life
