This is the teenage food queen who says she may never find a boyfriend because she eats 50 buns per meal and no one can afford her.

Insatiable Wang Wenwen, 18, is now trending online after videos showing her devouring 5 kilogrammes (11 lbs) of food in one sitting were seen more than five million times.

The native of Xianyang City, in north-western China’s Shaanxi Province, stands at 1.8 metres (5 feet 11 inches) tall and weighs just 46 kilogrammes (101 lbs or 7.2 stone) despite her insatiable appetite.

In her videos, she is seen wearing her colourful striped top while calmly noshing away at steamed buns and sipping soya milk placed in front of her.

Recently, Ms Wang shocked staff at the Daqin Longwang steamed bun restaurant when she won an eating contest by finishing 50 buns and six cups of soya milk in 48.5 minutes.

Zhao Zhihui, the restaurant’s owner, described her ability as a “superpower”.

However, Ms Wang has suggested that her special talent brings problems of its own.

She said: “What I hear the most is that I won’t be able to find a boyfriend, which is true.

“Anyone who sees me thinks: ‘Oh no. Who can afford to feed you?’”

Members of the public, who have dubbed Ms Wang the ‘Food Queen’, have also raised concerns about her health.

The teenage food lover said: “My family members take me to annual health check-ups.

“I also went for a full-body check-up before I started my job recently.

“Everything is normal. I just have a gigantic stomach.

“My monthly salary isn’t enough to feed myself.

“I used to eat at a cafeteria, but the owner started recognising me and forbade from going again!”

Ms Wang says her next goal is to take part in a national steamed bun eating contest, where she hopes to be recognised as China’s foremost bun eater.
