Best known for: being a YouTube personality, singer, actress, professional eater… basically she’s anything and everything

Bio: Trisha is “a mix between Woody Allen and your local hooker”, according to her Twitter bio – although no, we have no idea what that means either.

name someone more iconic than me. I'll wait.

A post shared by Trisha Paytas (@trishapaytas) on


Trisha originally became famous through her YouTube videos – some of which are *very* NSFW. She now has 2.8 million subscribers and tackles a range of subjects from ‘my weekend routine’ to ‘how to eat a banana’, ‘why I’m voting for Mitt Romney’ to ‘making out with my mom’ (sadly, we’re being serious).

Because there’s clearly no hope for humanity and this is actually a career in 2017, Trisha’s most recent videos document her ordering various takeaways and filming herself eating them.

Seriously, it’s a thing. These videos are called ‘mukbangs’, and if you don’t believe us, this vid of Trisha eating Pizza Hut has over two million views. Two. Million. Views:

Our sixth form careers advisor did not tell us this was a viable career. And we so wish they had.

Anyway if that wasn’t enough, Trisha is also a budding pop star. She’s released a bunch of EPs and her latest is called – wait for it – Chicken Fingers and Lipo.

If that’s made you want to listen to it (and frankly, why wouldn’t it?) it’s available on iTunes here. Enjoy?

Trisha’s talents don’t end there, though. She also has acting aspirations and has made brief appearances in Modern Family and 2012 film Wanderlust. Trisha does seem to get rather typecast though as her character names listed on IMDB include ‘Bikini Girl’, ‘Bored Blonde’, ‘Buxom Blonde #2’, ‘Stripper’ and ‘Sex Tape Girl’.

She’s also released a perfume called Trish and her Wikipedia page says she’s a former stripper… and devout Roman Catholic.

Celebrity Big Brother airs at 9pm on Channel 5
