Although controversial YouTuber Logan Paul is known for the multiple scandals that have cropped up throughout his career, that isn’t stopping him from making new moves in the space – one of which could be a joint project with a major celebrity.

Professional basketball player and former Kardashian spouse Lamar Odom appeared on an episode of Logan Paul’s ‘imPaulsive’ podcast in early May, where the two discussed a potential YouTube channel for the sports star.

While Odom initially expressed a desire to get back into reality TV following his marriage to Khloe Kardashian and his role in their ‘Khloe & Lamar’ show, he appeared to entertain Paul’s suggestion – a suggestion that was brought up a second time during an interview with YouTube celebrity news outlet Hollywood Life a month later.

The hostess asked Odom if he would be interested in such a venture with Logan Paul as per their initial discussion, to which the pro had an optimistic response, calling the potential venture a “good idea.”

“Yeah, I mean if Logan Paul, if they walked me down that aisle,” Odom replied. “I would try to marry it, maybe. It’s a good idea. And they’re the number one influencers in the world so, if they wanted to team up with me and show me how that works in that world, I would think about it.”

Although no further details have yet been released about this possible joining of forces, it wouldn’t be the first time Paul has considered changing up his YouTube career in a major way.

The YouTube star announced in a Tweet on May 28 that he hopes to pursue a career in full time fighting, following a year of attempting to infiltrate the UFC – to no avail.

Paul’s massively popular boxing match against rival YouTuber KSI in August 2018 set off a chain reaction of events, with fighting pros and commentators worldwide weighing in on the possibility of Paul’s stint in the sport.

Despite UFC president Dana White vehemently denying Paul a chance in the octagon, it looks like the YouTuber isn’t giving up hope, just yet – nor a chance at making it big with a big-time celeb, for that matter.

Mukbang YouTuber devastated as cheese fondue attempt ends in disaster

A mukbang YouTuber called Tasty Hoon is going hugely viral after his attempt at putting cheese in a fondue machine went hilariously wrong, leaving him and his viewers bewildered.

In recent years, the mukbang format has garnered insane popularity, spreading to just about every corner of the internet. The video style originated in Korea, the word mukbang (먹방) being a portmanteau of the Korean words for eat, and broadcast.

It involves the host of the video or stream eating an enormous amount of food on camera, often with a high-quality microphone to capture the raw eating sounds (a big part of the fun for some,) while interacting with their audience.

While the eating show format has spread globally, Korea is often revered as having the best mukbangs of them all, the ambitious amounts of food and varying cuisines proving to be hugely entertaining for the droves of people who love that style of content.

Tasty Hoon has tried several delicious looking foods in his short time on YouTube.

Tasty Hoon is one such YouTuber who wanted to give the mouthwatering content a go, making his attempt at a cheese fondue machine paired with fried chicken. But the results weren’t quite as dreamy as he perhaps expected.

After pouring the delicious-looking melted cheese into the bottom of the fondue machine everything was looking to be going to plan, but the second he hit the on-button, it seemed to be struggling a bit with the rather thick cheese.

Things quickly took a turn for the worse when the center of the machine start to actually lift off from the device altogether, and globs of cheese started to spin around at frightening speeds. As parts of the machine started to fall off, the cheese did not stop spinning, until eventually every bit of the previously delicious looking stuff had been flung across the room.

As Hoon finally turned the machine off, it wasn’t quite clear whether he was on the brink of laughter or tears – though understandably it was most likely both.

But not one to be beaten by a haywire fondue machine, he picked bits of the once airborne cheese off the table and began to eat it alongside his chicken. Just not in the way that he’d originally intended.

The clip went crazy on Twitter, with one tweet sharing the food disaster garnering a whopping 370,000 likes and 114,000 retweets.

In the comments, Hoon thanked everyone for enjoying the video and remarked that he was surprised to wake up and find he’d become a star overnight.

He also hinted that he’d give the cheese fountain another try soon, so no doubt people are anticipating what could be an equally hilarious sequel.
