Candy Godiva, born on September 18, 1972, successfully established a career as a “mukbang.” This is a Korean term that translates as eat in English. She launched her YouTube Channel Hungry Fatchick on December 6, 2010, and she finds fulfillment in this career. She has categorically stated that her channel is an eating channel, not a weight loss channel. Eleven years ago, she posted her first YouTube video, Hungry Fatchick Visits A Sonic Drive-In, which has garnered over 292k views. Her channel has hit 274k subscribers. We are excited to help you celebrate her birthday.

Godiva alleges that her mother had been jealous of her. She states their relationship as ‘toxic and neglected.’ She attributes part of her struggles to these constrained relationships and destructive habits.
