Stonie is a professional competitive eater and has worked with brands like Honey, Dollar Shave Club, Tide, and AT&T.He averages around 60 million views per month on YouTube, according to Night Media. His content revolves around massive food challenges (like eating 203 Chips Ahoy cookies or 10,000 calories of chili cheese fries) where he shows off his ability to consume huge amounts of food quickly.
He has set several world records, like eating 20.08 lbs of pumpkin pie in 8 minutes. He also won the 2015 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.Stonie will be managed by Nick Brotman, who also manages YouTube creators Unspeakable (19 million YouTube subscribers), Mini Ladd (7 million YouTube subscribers), and Twitch streamer and TikTok creator Neekolul.
“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.”
