“Hungry Haydo” first started his public persona early November 2011, when he began posting videos of his eating prowess on Youtube and blogging about his adventures on his Facebook page. After working his way through significant volumes of fast food restaurant menu items, he gained notoriety by eating a 400g jar of Vegemite in 4 minutes 10 seconds.
Realising his talent was unique in Australia, his efforts soon focused on raising money for his chosen charity, “The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia”. Since launching his fundraising drive, he has raised over $23,000 for the charity through various competitive eating events around the country.
As Haydo’s appetite continues to grow, so do the number of events that he competes in. Rarely beaten, he is recognised as one of Australia’s top competitive eaters.
