Matt attended Evergreen Valley High School, and after matriculating went to Mission College. He made his Major League Eating debut in 2011, taking part in the Stockton Deep Fried Asparagus Championship. He became the youngest member of the organization, and would gain his first win as a contestant in a lobster roll eating contest. Soon, he started to use the name “Megatoad”, based on Toad from the video game “Super Mari Bros”. As he started gaining prominence in competitive eating, his net worth also started increasing significantly.

In 2012, Stonie created a YouTube channel, and uploaded his first video which depicted him drinking a gallon of Gatorade in 37 seconds. Since then, he’s released more videos of himself eating and drinking, garnering the attention of various celebrities, and an increasingly wider audience, gaining more than three million subscribers, as well as being featured in videos on other websites. One of his most popular videos shows him consuming 25 McDonald’s Big Mac hamburgers in 22 minutes, which became an unofficial world record. His most viewed video has garnered over 19 million views, and his popularity on YouTube has significantly boosted his net worth. In 2015, Stonie would defeat Joey Chestnut – who had held the title for eight years – by eating 62 hotdogs compared to Joey’s 60. However, he would only hold the championship for one year, losing to Chestnut the following year 53-70. He tried again in 2017 but only came in third place.

Matt holds numerous world records for the amount of certain foods eaten, or time taken to consume the food; he’s actually set more than 20 different records. Some of his records include 32.5 Indian Tacos in eight minutes, 182 slices of Bacon in five minutes, and 113 Pancakes in eight minutes. In 2017, he set another world record of 255 Peeps in five minutes. Interestingly, Matt is also studying nutrition, and aims to be a dietitian in the future. He’s been featured by high profile publications, with “Rolling Stone” calling him the future of competitive eating. He’s also been featured in an article by “GQ”, detailing his diet and preparation for competitions.

For his personal life, nothing is known about Stonie’s romantic relationships, if any. Despite his gargantuan eating competitions, he weighs just 57kgs, less than 130 pounds. He’s very active on social media, having more than 51,000 followers on Twitter, and over 109,000 followers on Instagram. His social media pages are updated on a regular basis.
