Several years ago, he moved to Los Angeles to put himself in a better position to pursue his dreams of being in the entertainment industry.

2. He Worked As A Waiter

With Zach’s apparent love for food, it’s not too shocking that he used to be a waiter. It’s unclear which restaurant Zach worked in, but he likely had this job when he first moved to L.A. It’s pretty common for people in the area to hold down odd jobs while they pursue other interests. One thing’s for sure though, a job involving food seems to be a requirement for Choi.

3. Most Of His Fans Have Never Heard His Voice

There are lots of ASMR and Mukbang YouTubers out there, but what makes Zach Choi so unique is that he never uses his voice. Literally, never. All of his videos are silent with the exception of the allegedly soothing sound of his chewing. He even remains silent while doing videos with other YouTubers. In his early days, talking –more like whispering– was a part of his routine but many believe that he stopped due to insecurities about his voice. However, diehard Choi followers were able to uncover some older YouTube videos where Zach can be heard talking in his regular voice.

The problems began when Stephanie, Nikocado, and Zach were filmng together for a collaboration video. During the video, Nikocado asked Stephanie to share information on another YouTuber. The request clearly made Stephanie uncomfortable and things quickly took a turn. Stephanie accused Nikocado of being “manipulative“. She also expressed that he made her feel unsafe. Although the moment didn’t have anything to do with Choi, viewers were looking for him to speak out on either side.  Choi eventually released a series of tweets sharing his feelings on the situation.
