Digital media has been on the rise for well over a decade now, and it does not show any signs of slowing down. It has never been easier to access information all over the world more than ever, especially when it comes to viewing digital videos. And for those who are looking to make a name for themselves, these people look to a website called YouTube, where they pretty much do almost just about anything they want to do. Furthermore, people are actually entertained by what these uploaders do no matter how ludicrous their content may be. Then there are those who have managed to acquire fame and amassed a legion of fans or frequent visitors to see what else they can do, or just to see the same antics all over again. These people are called YouTubers.
YouTubers these days have become largely mainstream, and just about everyone is trying to become famous by making videos of themselves on YouTube. But not everyone can rise to stardom, get book deals, go on media tours, become a celebrity, get advertisement deals, and make money from simply posting videos on YouTube. Only those who have a lot of subscribers are entitled to some of those benefits, and only the extremely popular ones are able to get most— if not all—of those sweet deals that is the dream of every aspiring onine video stars. That being said, let’s have a look at some more of the most well-known ones from Asia—or those with Asian descent—who have managed to use YouTube as a platform for success and stardom.
Yuka Kinoshita (pictured below) is a Japanese YouTuber who uploads videos of her eating plenty of food. She eats anywhere between 5,000 to 23,000 calorie meals. She started uploading videos five years after her debut in Japanese eating competitions. Kinoshita eats so much that Japanese people have dubbed her as the “gluttonous beautiful woman”. She has also appeared on Japanese TV where she goes around and looks for restaurants that offer abnormally large portions and eat everything they serve her. As of June 2017, she has more than 3.1 million people subscribing to her mouthwatering videos.
