How do people luck into jobs like this? There’s a 14-year-old kid in South Korea who goes by the name B.J. PATOO, and he makes up to $1,500 a night just by eating at his computer.
There’s a phenomenon over there called “mukbang”, which literally translates as, “eating broadcast”. (It’s pronounced “muck-bong.”)
It’s pretty simple: You just sit in front of your webcam and chat with people . . . while eating large quantities of food, sometimes very LOUDLY.
Patoo is one of the most popular mukbangers . . . if that’s a word . . . which is why he makes so much. It all comes from fans, who “gift” him things called “Star Balloons” that cost about ten cents each. And most of his fans are teenagers.
A lot of them say they watch because it’s entertaining, which is weird . . .
Other people say it helps them satisfy their cravings without actually eating . . . which is probably weirder, because when was the last time you turned on the Food Network, and then DIDN’T want to eat everything in your fridge?
Anyway, “Business Insider” says the mukbang kid made about 250 GRAND in 2013 . . . which really makes you wonder why you paid so much for that college diploma.

If you’re one of those people who are OUTRAGED that they’re remaking “Ghostbusters” with women, then I have even WORSE news for you. Because the star of the upcoming “Road House” remake is . . . UFC women’s champ RONDA ROUSEY.
It’s one thing to turn Aykroyd, Murray, Ramis, and Ernie Hudson into chicks . . . but Swayze? SWAYZE???
Although let’s look at this a little more closely: Swayze was prettier than Ronda on his worst day, and on his best day he was nowhere near the fighter she is.
So if we’re being honest, “Road House” is FINALLY getting the true, real-life ass-kicker it deserves in the lead role.
Plus, Ronda reached out to Patrick’s widow Lisa Niemi, and got her approval. She Tweeted, quote, “It is a great honor to play a part in celebrating the life of a man that inspired so many.
“I couldn’t be more grateful to have this opportunity to pay respect to the beloved Patrick Swayze. I promise to work incessantly to make sure this project is a tribute his family and fans can be proud of.”
Ariana Grande has confirmed speculation that she’s recording a duet with Justin Bieber. On Friday, Biebshinted that he and the 20-year-old Ariana have been working together when he used Twitter and Instagram to congratulate her on her number one hit “Problem” and then added the hashtag, “#arianabieberduet” with a picture of them in a recording studio.
Then later that day Ariana confirmed the news. “I’m excited about it,” she told Ryan Seacrest. “Justin wrote it and brought the idea to me and I was really excited to hear it and I’m excited to work with him. I’ve wanted to work with him for a while.” She added, “I know it’s something our fans have been begging for for years now.”
