What is the attraction of food-eating videos?

Recommended Posts

Recently my gf looks on YouTube sometimes videos of people eating food.

Sometimes someone staffs an expensive big lobster into their mouth. Another times it's cheap rice noodles with vegetables. Or maybe someone eating 100 bowls of noodle soup.

The videos don't show how the food is prepared, which might be interesting.

The videos only show people, mostly just one person, eating, eating and eating until they are full. And then they eat some more.

And the eaters are mostly "normal" people. Not a half naked pretty girl which would get that attraction also without food.

 

What's the attraction of those videos? Yesterday I had a look and it seems many of those videos have more than 100,000 people who watched them.

Why?

 

P.S.: I asked her. She didn't even try to explain it to me.

Seems kind of the thing to do nowadays.

I dropped Facebook, but when I had it before most people seemed to post lots of photos of their food.

Not sure why.

We all eat so what is the big deal?

It's called stuffing the pie hole.

 

Surely you must be aware of those hot dog eating contests!

 

From Wikipedia:

The Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest is an annual American hot dog competitive eating competition. ... The defending men's champion is Joey Chestnut, who ate 74 hot dogs in the 2018 contest.

When you have the answer pls let me know, I'll share with my wife who similarly watches,  usually the same person,  eating food. My wife's answer is "I just like to see her eating" which I can't understand.

 

When I reply that I get more enjoyment out of watching videos of people bonking she can't understand that either  😂😂😂

You wife like this one right?

 

 

 

Thai woman like to know about how to make good food. It is interesting. So the other countries is interesting also.

Also have social pressure to be the good cook.

You can, in the same breath, ask why people do anything and post it for the whole world to see, it's like ' look at me, i'm published, and people i don't care for or don't even know can see me now'... the whole social media is one big exercise in public exhibitionizm ..

If people publish it and make money out of it then there is at least a reason.

But why do people watch it?

 

Maybe I should try publishing videos of flowers growing or maybe videos of gold fish in a tank. If millions of people watch that I will have a nice income. But somehow I doubt that millions of people will watch it because I don't think millions of people would be so stupid. But then again, it seems they are so stupid.

Then they should look at videos how to prepare food. There are lots of good videos out there about preparing and cooking the food. But you don't know how it's made if you see a video with someone stuffing herself.

Perhaps Youtube should put a health information tag on the clip  when allowing these videos to be uploaded ?

 

Something like this perhaps  "You too can be as fat as me if you eat like me !!"  😂
