Dramareport, an online celebrity gossip website, reported that the popular mukbang YouTuber Nikocado Avocado, real name Nicholas Perry, was hospitalised and forced to cease his extreme eating habits or face significant health complications.

Nikocado’s channel, which has over three million subscribers and is based around the concept of “mukbang” – a type ASMR video in which viewers watch someone else eat.

He became one of, if not the most popular mukbang content creators on YouTube due to his loud and eccentric personality as well as his willingness to try any food, regardless of how strange it appeared at first; however, according to a report, this eventually took a toll on his health, prompting doctors to force him to change his lifestyle and ultimately take a break from YouTube.

Since Nikocado Avocado has not released a video in over two months, his whereabouts have been the subject of much speculation. However, as people became concerned about his disappearance, he posted a video on social media explaining that his sudden disappearance was due to multiple dentist visits.

According to an unnamed individual who claims to be acquainted with Nikocado Avocado, a source close to the YouTube celebrity claimed that a doctor informed him that he was severely overweight and needed to take a break from his excessive eating habits or else his next meal might be his last. The doctor reportedly told the YouTube celebrity that he was severely overweight and needed to take a break from his excessive eating habits or else his next meal might be his last.

Nikocado Avocado hasn’t been seen in public since announcing his hiatus from the dental chair, leading many to suspect he’s undergoing treatments for his obesity-related health issues. He has, however, continued to publish pictures on social media demonstrating that he is still alive and well.

Nikocado Avocado to retire?

Nikocado Avocado’s reps have not replied to calls for comment. Nevertheless, if the rumours regarding his forced absence from YouTube are accurate, it would not be the first time a mukbang YouTuber has taken a pause owing to health problems. Trisha Paytas, an additional prominent mukbang YouTuber, said in 2018 that she will be taking a hiatus from the site after being diagnosed with several health concerns, including obesity.

If the claim is to be believed, Nikocado Avocado will need to reconsider his future on YouTube, and as a result, he will need to switch his material away from mukbang and toward something else in order to maintain his commitment to a healthy lifestyle.

Ad revenue and proceeds from OnlyFans have helped the prominent mukbang YouTuber amass about $3 million in net worth, making retirement a distinct possibility for him.
