Cherish “5 Pounds” Brown: The MMA Fighter and Food Challenger That Packs a Punch

It's been an exciting past few weeks for Cherish Brown, a food challenger and mother from Ohio. Cherish has attained almost 200 subscribers on her YouTube channel after launching it in 2021. Cherish goes by the nickname "5 Pounds," which comes from her participation in MMA (Mixed Martial Arts). Cherish is an amateur MMA fighter and Jiu-Jitsu competitor.

Cherish takes on various types of food challenges and eating contests. For example, she will take on anything from the world's hottest chip to six pounds of Halloween candy.

Don't believe me?

Check out her unbelievable food attempts below!



Cherish most recently went on a three-day, seven-state eating tour and brought along some of her closest friends and fellow competitive eaters. She also stopped in Memphis, TN, to take on the famous Kookamonga team burger challenge at Kooky Canuck.



Cherish excitingly updated her fans and friends on Instagram with how she felt the tour went and the fun she had.

"My weekend consisted of:

•7 states in 3 days

•8 competitive eaters

•2 food challenges

•1 5-mile race

•6 donuts

•Mini golf, the arcade, and bowling

•Bass Pro Shops at the Pyramid

•And my first real life capybara at the Memphis Zoo!

Life is fun, friends are great, and traveling is amazing. I never want to stop having these adventures. 🙃"


Cherish "Five Pounds" Brown is a food challenger to watch. With her tenacity, consistency, and talent for eating, I predict that Cherish will go a long way in competitive eating.
