This guy definitely lives to eat.
Furious Pete (real name Peter Czerwinski) is a Canadian competitive eater who has achieved/broken multiple world records for competitive eating and posts videos of him eating on YouTube. His primary YouTube channel has reached 955 million views since he joined on August 2006.

Due to his ongoing battle with testicular cancer that required he have both his testicles surgically removed, Furious Pete has put his competitive eating on hiatus since January 2019 and shifted attention to simply showing tours of restaurants and unique combinations or sizes of food or his ongoing battles against his testicular cancer.

Furious Pete provides examples of:

  • And a Diet Coke: In the "Whataburger" taste test, he orders multiple burgers plus fries and still asks for Diet Coke.
  • Balloon Belly: He'll show it off to the viewer at times.
  • Big Eater: Thanks to his muscular build and slow metabolism.
  • Christmas Episode: For Christmas 2017, he took on the Santa Challenge to eat 100 cookies with 60 ounces of milk.
