Nicholas Perry, better known as Nikocado Avocado, is an American YouTube star, food blogger, and social media personality. He has garnered fame for posting mukbang videos on his incredibly popular YouTube channel. Despite creating his channel in May 2014, he did not post anything on it until February 2016. Initially, he was a vegan YouTuber and posted content that revolved around vegan food and lifestyle. In September, he spoke candidly to his audience about his experience with the vegan community on YouTube and revealed that he did not wish to be a vegan YouTuber any more. He subsequently began posting vegan mukbang content. He later quit veganism altogether and started making mukbang videos with dairy, meat, eggs, and seafood. In the past couple of years, Nikocado has gained a significant amount of weight because of his lifestyle. However, he has simultaneously become one of the most popular as well as controversial mukbang content creators on the platform. He has over a million followers on the main channel and hundreds of millions of views in total. Nikocado has been criticised for swearing and cursing in his videos as well as for over-sharing and over-dramatizing details of his personal life.
Rise to Fame
Nikocado Avocado has been appearing on his secondary channel for a longer period than his primary channel. The secondary channel, which is now known as ‘Nikocado Avocado 2,’ was created by Orlin Home on July 7, 2012, under the username OmaDesalasOrlin. His first video, ‘Best Mango Farm Florida’, was posted on May 4, 2013. Nikocado made his first appearance on the channel on August 7, 2017, in a video titled ‘Nikocado Plays Violin’. These days, the couple exclusively uses the channel to put out mukbang content and has garnered several hundred thousand subscribers and tens of millions of views in total on it.
Nikocado set up his main account on May 27, 2014, and started posting vegan food and lifestyle-related content on it in February 2016. However, he seems to have deleted all the videos he had posted prior to September 2016. The oldest video on the channel, ‘Why I'm No Longer a Vegan Youtuber’, was posted on 1 September. In it, he denounces the vegan community altogether, dubbing its members as “imbalanced, hostile, militant, and mentally unstable”. He also spoke about the vegan community on YouTube and stated that he did not want to be associated with them any longer.
He subsequently started uploading vegan mukbang videos. On December 31, 2016, he posted a video titled ‘I Don't Want to be Vegan Anymore’, in which an emotional Nikocado once more spoke about his issues with the vegan community and veganism. In January 2017, he began putting out non-vegan mukbang videos. Since then, Nikocado has put on some weight due to binge-eating unhealthy food, something that has been the subject of several of his videos. However, it is the same eating habits which have inspired morbid fascination among his viewers and helped him grow his channel exponentially in the past few years. These days, he receives hundreds of thousands of views on each of his videos.
The oldest photograph on his Instagram handle was posted on December 20, 2016. It is a picture of his cat. Since then, he has accumulated over two hundred thousand followers on it. On Twitter, he has tens of thousands of followers.

In April 2017, Nikocado appeared in a video titled ‘Why We Broke Up’ with Home and their pet parrot Mr Noodles. In it, he revealed that he had extramarital affairs with 12 different men during his world travel in 2016, and when he returned, he had chlamydia and passed it on to Home. They were already having relationship issues when Nikocado had left Colombia for his trip, deciding to take a break from each other. After Home found out what had happened, they broke up.
