Chinese people might be known for their petite size (hey, still 1cm taller than the Japanese!), but their appetites often know no physical boundaries. Just last week, this young firefighter became an online sensation after his peers posted pictures of him gulping down a giant bowl of instant noodles. However, he might have found a challenger to his throne.
Mi Zijun, a young woman from Chongqing, has become quite the online celebrity on Meipai, with over 500,000 subscribers. Mi’s followers tune in to watch to her eat large quantities of food in a single sitting. Despite her enormous appetite, she is a relatively skinny person and was even a Taobao model.
Recently in a rice-eating competition in Hangzhou, she ate a little more than 4 kg of plain white rice. Watch her gobble it all down here:
Other things she’s devoured include: 12 cups of instant noodles:
8 portions of pig brains, 2 portions of fried rice and 2 fish:
Or 108 spring rolls:
If desserts are more your thing, what about 52 pieces of cake?
Let’s just hope she stays away from bananas.
