So apparently its a huge thing in South Korea to watch people eat large amounts of food on live cams

The most popular eater is named 'The Diva' and she eats a lot at one 3 hour sitting.

You can chat with her while she eats and send her "balloons" aka money. Eaters can make $9000.00 a month eating.

Some are sponsored by restaurants.

Heres an article about it

Many viewers are female dieters living vicariously thru the eaters...
May eaters cook and eat in their bedrooms. lol


Here are some screen shots (the top one is the Diva - Coca Cola Ill bet sent her all that coke behind her)


Heres The Divas webpage

Huh.  Well, that's kinda weird.



I honestly expected to see a larger woman on that site.  How can she eat like that and not get huge?

Maybe she has another site for people who like to watch bulimics?  Sorry that's terrible but was my first thought.

seems sort of like a fetish thing, hence the attractive women
