131-pound competitive eater gobbles down food in fast time

A California woman who weighs just over 130lbs has amassed a massive TikTok following because of her stellar eating challenges where she eats mass amounts of food in impressive times. 

Raina Huang, 27, is currently in the midst of a several-week long tour across Utah and Idaho, with plans to finish the series of food challenges in Las Vegas. As of Wednesday, she had already completed more than a dozen. 

The competitive eater made a stop at Lucy's Pizza in Idaho Falls, devouring an 18-inch, four topping pizza and a 40-ounce drink in just 8.03minutes.

'I'm ok,' Huang said to EastIdahoNews.com after she chowed down on the remainder of the food. 'Their pizza is really good. I feel like it was pretty light because their pizza isn't too thick on the crust, so it wasn't too bad.' 

Huang, who has 1.7million followers on her TikTok page Rainaiscrazy, has actually developed a lactose intolerance that is a direct result of the many food challenges she has been a part of over the years. 

'I'm not too bad on the lactose intolerance, so I can definitely take in a good amount before I feel really bad,' she said. 

She is no stranger to large portions, attributing the ability to consume large quantities to her family's background.

'I'm Chinese and in Chinese culture … there's no portion control. My family always wanted to feed the kids and they'd always put everything on my plate,' she explained. 'My family didn't want any leftovers so they'd say 'Raina, eat it!' So they kind of trained me for this.' 

But even with the large portions, Huang is clearly able to manage a small frame. 

'I run a 5K every day,' the competitive eater shared. 'When I'm at home, I definitely balance it out. When I'm on tour doing stuff like this, that will be my meal for the entire day. At home, I eat very healthy — a lot of vegetables, very few carbs and very little meat.'

Another clip shows Huang scarfing - if you can call it that - a 9lb chicken sampler - in just over 45 minutes.

Huang's first eating challenge took place three years ago when she ate a 4lb burrito in six minutes, becoming a huge hit on YouTube. She enjoys noodle challenges the most and shared that she struggles the most with pancake ones.

Huang is joined on her recent food journey by fellow food lover 31-year-old Blaine Koenig of Long Beach, California. Koenig completed his own challenge in Caldwell - eating an 8lb steak - before he made it to Idaho Falls. 

'I run a 5K every day,' the competitive eater shared. 'When I'm at home, I definitely balance it out. When I'm on tour doing stuff like this, that will be my meal for the entire day. At home, I eat very healthy — a lot of vegetables, very few carbs and very little meat'

'It took me 55 minutes,' Koenig said. 'I'm just happy if I finish the challenge. That's my goal. It's never to try and beat a record or anything like that. I feel it big time. I don't usually feel that great. On the drive over here, I was sweating a lot.' 

Huang and Koenig love finding new food challenges to tackle but mostly enjoy the opportunity to see new places. 

'It's definitely about meeting the fans … and exploring because I love to travel,' said Huang. 'The traveling part has been incredible for me I've been bubbled up in California my whole life and when I started to (consider) going on international trips or even within the U.S., I was like "Oh my God, there's so much to do and discover and so many different cultures. I really enjoy experiencing that."'
