One look at Katina and you might think there’s no way she can eat thousands and thousands of calories in a short period of time, but you’d be wrong. The 31-year-old YouTube and TikTok creator has made a living out of eating thanks to her competitive nature and big appetite. She started in the world of competitive eating in 2019 after competing in a local bodybuilding show. She then began visiting Spokane, Washington area restaurants for their food challenges. After winning these food challenges without difficulty, Katina was ready to tackle more. She began taking on eating stunts and spicy food challenges on her YouTube channel, and touring the country to find the best food challenges to compete in.
