The First YouTube Video that Stonie uploaded to YouTube is on August 27, 2012. His nickname toad was derived from the video game character “Toad” in Supermario. Well, I preferred calling him by his name Matt Stonie rather than “Megatoad”

That video of him eating those Ultimate Nacho Platter made me drool for a bowl of nachos for a day.The crunchiness of Nacho chips, the greasy oil of the ground beef, those fresh green onions and roma tomatoes, aromatic black beans, firing jalapeno and of course the mouth watering Nacho Cheese.

MATT STONIE ALWAYS COOK FOODS FROM SCRATCH

Matt is fond of cooking foods from ingredients bought from stores and supplied by sponsors. My 2 favourite episodes were in he really cooked the entire menu was the ‘Massive 10,000 Calorie English Breakfast Challenge’ and ‘Massive Italian Feast Challenge

The ‘Massive English Breakfast Challenge’ contains buttered toast bread, scramble eggs, sunny side up eggs, baked crispy bacon, golden hash brown, sausages, fresh tomatoes, fresh mushroom and of course the crispy fried french-fries.The other one is the ‘Massive Italian Feast Challenge’ which contains 6 plates of baked Lasagna, 3 platters of cooked chicken breast with tomato sauce and of course the all time favourite 1 large bowl of Italian Spaghetti.

The two food challenge was entirely started from scratch, except for the Hash brown. In the actual video, Stonie shows the viewers on how he cooked the food before eating, which made him more unique from the other YouTuber.

MATT STONIE HAS A HUGE CHART OF IDEA IN EVERY CHALLENGE

I must say this one shows how Matt Stonie is even more unique compare to the other food challenger in YouTube. His Ideas are really interesting and refreshing to the eye. Example of his unique idea is the Emoji Food Challenge, which is really cute, the Manny Pacquiao’s Diet Challenge (7,000+ Calories) which is really the healthiest one, the Michael Phelps 12,000+ Calories Diet Challengewhich is savage and heavy, the Big Smoke's Order (Food Challenge), which is really cool and really the same as the Grand Theft Auto game itself, and many more.

My Top 3 Fastest Food Challenges of Matt Stonie are The Fastest Happy Meal Ever Eaten, he successfully beat the record of Isaac Harding-Davis which has the time of 18.6 seconds. Stonie dominated it after 3 failed tries and has successfully beat it at the 4 tries with the time of 15.22 seconds. Next one is the 18 inches burritos or what they called ‘Burritozilla’, Stonie ate the whole of it just 1 minute and 51 seconds. The smoothest eater of Burritozilla ever! However, Joey Chestnut beat his record at 1 minute and 40 seconds. The last one in the list is the 12 Krispy Kreme Donuts, which he destroyed the entire box of it under 60 seconds.

HE HAS A COOL BROTHER

Meet his younger brother, Morgan Stonie. I can consider Morgan as the most supportive brother of Stonie. In every video, Morgan serves as Stonie’s cameraman and a cheerleader. You’ll hear him laugh or talks behind the camera in some videos.
