In some shocking news, it has emerged that an American woman who is aiming to become the world's fattest woman has already started profiting from her challenge - by earning 90,000 dollars a year from fans who pay to watch her eat online.
Donna Simpson, 44, who already holds the dubious honour of being the world's fattest woman to give birth, makes money from people hungry to watch her eat more than 15,000 calories a day, reports the Daily Mail.

Her website charged people around 20 dollars for 30 days for viewing her tucking huge meals, and the profits are used to fund her huge food shopping bill, which is estimated to cost her around 500 pounds a week.
The New Jersey mother ploughs through burgers, chips, meatloaf, pizza, cake and fizzy drinks.
But Donna, who struggles to walk and suffers high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes, refuses to give up her incredibly dangerous eating habits, ignoring all doctors' warnings.
The 5ft 2in mother, who now requires a mobility scooter to go shopping, wears XXXXXXXL dresses and tries to move as little as possible to prevent her from burning any precious calories.
