Candy Godiva is an American YouTuber, social media personality, and adult web model who has a net worth of $150,000. Her digital avatar is “Hungry Fatchick,” and videos are centered around mukbanging and vlogging.

Her online celebrity has garnered a lot of positive and negative attention, which has been a propelling element to success in the YouTube community.

As a young child, she often relocated, moving from Tennessee to Maryland to Louisiana, eventually settling in South Louisiana, where her grandmother and grandfather would raise her.

She has mentioned that she has a half-sister but was never given the opportunity to get to know her very well.

Once she was of legal age, she relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada.

Shortly after moving, she met her ex-husband, who was fresh out of prison, and they quickly married two weeks later, albeit the relationship didn’t last.

Together they have two children, a girl and a boy, who their paternal grandmother raises.

Hungry Fatchick

Candy officially activated her YouTube page on December 6, 2010.

She created the channel titling it “Hungry Fatchick,” and immediately went live with her first on-camera eating video.

Her first video was titled “Hungry Fatchick Visits a Sonic Drive-In,” which currently has over 240,000 views.

While she experienced immediate success, she didn’t begin to upload videos until 2017 regularly.

While it would be safe to assume such videos would garner a vast amount of negative attention; fortunately, the negative attention was mild. In fact, she quickly developed a large, and growing, fan base.

Candy began uploading her wildly popular mukbang videos as a side-hobby to her already successful career as an adult web model.

She decided to start uploading mukbang videos shortly after she learned about its popularity in South Korea.

The term ‘Mukbang‘ is a portmanteau of the Korean words for “eating” and “show/broadcast.”

Youtubers in South Korea started the trend in 2011 and began uploading videos of themselves eating large amounts of food, consisting entirely of eating and not talking. It is meant to entertain viewers with a fixation on this type of unique content.

It has since gained traction across the globe, and Americans like Candy quickly jumped on board this lucrative train.

The Road To Fame

Candy’s popularity snowballed due to her openness to try a variety of new foods coupled with her ability to consume excessive amounts of calories in each meal.

The irony of her decision to do mukbang videos as a career is that she’s struggled with overeating, body image, and depression throughout her entire life.

Her first memories of the catalyst that manifested her unhealthy relationship with food were from her childhood when her parents would reward her good behavior with treats and large amounts of food.

I think that was the start of my becoming fat, the first stage of my starvation and the loss of my metabolism, of my good metabolism because from being starved to being force-fed practically. It was like, ‘here, have a cookie, eat some pie, and have a piece of cake. Here, that’ll make you feel better.’ By the time I was in first and second grade, I was a balloon.”

Additionally, she often adds random inserts into her videos regarding her feelings that indicate she still battles with many of her childhood-rooted mental health issues.

I have so much grief, so when I say I’m happy, I can be happy, but I carry so much sadness. I mean, unbelievable amounts of sadness.”

Despite all her struggles in life, she was always determined to become something.

She honed in on her YouTube channel and successfully became one of Youtube’s more popular American mukbanger’s.

At the time of writing, the most popular video she uploaded was on October 16, 2017, titled ‘Jollibee Mukbang Eating Show.’ The video has garnered over 2.5 million views.

Following this, she’s had a few additional videos that exceeded over 1 million views, including ‘Italian Fest Mukbang With Candy,’ ‘Simple Italian Sub with Recipe Mukbang No Makeup,’ ‘Massive Italian Feast Mukbang.’

Additionally, some of her more personal vlog-style videos do comparatively well as she’s built a loyal fanbase, and many of her spectators are eager to get to know her on a more personal level.

In a few of her videos, she talks in-depth about her upbringing and struggles, directly related to her current life and ongoing struggles.

While the mukbang space has proven to be lucrative due to the high demand of its viewers, Candy is very candid about her reasoning for pursuing it.


Godiva weighs about 450 lb (204 kilograms).


Candy is 5 ft 1 in (154 cm) tall.

“Mukbang” doesn’t mean “eat”. It is a portmanteau of “eat” (meok-da) and broadcast (bang-song). So a better way to say it in English is “eating show” or “eating stream” or even “eatcast” (like podcast).
