The net worth of Stephanie Soo
As of mid-2020, Stephanie Soo’s net worth is estimated to be over $1.5 million, earned through a successful online career. Her videos are very popular and she has earned significant ad revenue from them. She also has plenty of other opportunities thanks to her online fame.
Early life and online beginnings
While Stephanie was born in South Korea, her family later moved to the US. Details of why they moved are unknown, but she grew up with American culture, while her family still taught her many of their country’s values. This kept her connected to South Korean culture, especially when it came to food. Growing up, she loved to eat and she was the type to eat a lot because she liked to try different cuisines.
Before she got online fame, she hadn’t considered a career on YouTube, but the opportunity eventually became more interesting to her, as YouTube has become a platform that has helped many people to find fame as well as wealth.
This is because Google pays content creators money depending on how much engagement and interactions their videos attract. Many celebrities on YouTube have become rich because they have become celebrities online, with their videos regularly being watched millions of times. She initially thought of starting a video blog (vlog), but when she created her channel, the mukbang phenomenon began.
The term meokbang is a combination of the words meongneun and bangsong, meaning eat broadcast respectively. The craze originated through the streaming platform AfreecaTV in 2009, when several South Korean streamers interacted with their audiences over dinner.
This practice eventually became popular through other streaming platforms as well, mostly with people enjoying seeing other people enjoying food along with the interaction it entails. Other people came for the fascination with the foods other people tried, their reactions and their personalities.
This craze eventually made its way to YouTube, where some streamed while others shot pre-recorded videos. While the latter had very little inactivity, YouTubers often made it work due to the amount of interaction and content they created in it. They often tell stories or have other people with them to help entertain the viewers.
Soo started to make such videos in 2017, and although she was shy at first, she still wanted to try making mukbang videos. She got a lot of attention from people, and although she didn’t have the same openness as now, many viewers enjoyed her personality, while others found her attractive.
Stephanie built a loyal, consistent following thanks to regular uploads and interactions with her fans. She read comments, responded to them, and even listened to her viewers’ suggestions or advice. Her popularity soared even further when she was mentioned by another popular mukbang YouTuber, Veronica Wang. This sparked a friendship between the two and they started collaborating on videos regularly.
This in turn opened the door to more YouTubers and people enjoyed her interaction with other popular names.
Most of the time, however, she does it alone, or prefers to have close friends who are not camera shy. The camera was often done by her romantic partner who is very shy and although he also likes the food, he preferred to be present off camera. As her popularity grew, she felt that her main channel would be focused on mukbang, so she started another channel, a more dedicated video blog (vlog) channel.
She posts videos there that aren’t often seen on her main channel, including updates about her life and some of the activities she does when she’s not eating in front of the camera.
A problem with Nikocado Avocado
Over the years, as Soo’s circle of friends grew, she started collaborating with more popular YouTubers, as well as Wang regularly, but eventually their personalities clashed and she felt more uncomfortable working with her. After agreeing to do a collaborative video, she decided to back off as she was no longer interested in working with Wang. This drew the ire of several of Wang’s friends who were also YouTube personalities. One in particular, Nikocado Avocado, became confrontational and asked why she would fall back on an agreed-upon plan.
She defended herself and her actions, though Nikocado started going too far by posting a video accusing Soo of being unprofessional and trying to show that she had a bad personality. She then responded with a video of her own, revealing that he had started posting falsely presented videos while she was broadcasting the actual conversations, showing that he was trying to manipulate viewers into thinking negatively about her. Threats and verbal attacks began to come her way from Nikocado, and this led to a breakdown. She made another one video show how much she had been pressured and attacked, which gained her many followers. She then got rid of the problem and continues to make mukbang videos with people close to her.
Stephanie has been in a relationship for a long time, although she has failed to mention details about her partner due to his wish to remain private. She refers to him as MisterMangoButt, the partner of her other online nickname MissMangoButt, the name of her vlogging channel. In 2019, she announced that they were engaged and that people became interested in learning more about him. Some discovered that he is Rui Quan, a watch salesman who works for the Harry Winston brand. He was also known as an attractive man. Many people also wonder how the couple managed to stay slim despite eating a lot in their YouTube videos.
