Not every well-known personality keeps their love life transparent to the media. It's even less apparent of those celebs who are rising stars in the world of fame. As they climb up the ladder, more and more details of their personal life are revealed.
Matt Stonie has made a career as a competitive eater and as a youtube star. He is smashing it as far as his professional life is concerned. But can the same be said about his personal life? What is he doing currently? Is he in a relationship? How many girlfriends has he had? Let's find out.
What is Matt Stonie Up To? Is He Dating Someone?
Matt Stonie is reportedly single. He seems a pretty private person who does not reveal much about his dating life. Moreover, since he is a rising star who has not gained enormous stardom yet, it is understandable that the details of his personal life are not as obvious to the public.
Currently 26-year-old, Matt appears fully engrossed in his career at the moment. He could be secretly dating a lucky lady but it's never been reported in any of the media outlets.
Matt is often asked about his girlfriend by his fans on the comments section of his videos. During the Q/A session on one of his Youtube videos, he responded by claiming to be 'single and lonely'.
It remains to be seen when this competitive eater spills the beans regarding his dating endeavors.
Meanwhile, Matt Stonie claims to work really hard to stay in shape. Stonie told GQ that he makes sure to take care of himself to ensure he stays healthy despite how much food he eats. He said:
"It really just comes down to diet and watching what you're eating after a contest."
"But I'm definitely in the gym five times a week doing cardio or weights. I've made this my full-time job, and I spend a lot of time taking care of myself. It's hard, it's not like we have superhuman metabolisms."
Stonie's talents do not end at eating a crazy amount of food. He is pretty passionate about music. In fact, he is fond of playing guitar and has done so for most of his life.
Answering to fans on Reddit, Matt claimed he truly enjoys performing for people. The professional eater added, if his competitive eating days are behind him, he would love to pursue as a career as a professional musician.
