A reality tv star who made $50,000 a week from selling farts has been hospitalized for trying to fart too much but, she’s now decided to spill the beans on her business secrets.
And it will blow you away (pun intended).
Scroll on to find out…
Stephanie Matto is a reality tv personality, who made her debut to social media fame when she participated on the show 90 Day Fiancé.
But recently, Matto has been known on social media for an entirely different reason…
Matto has been making money in a very interesting way…
By selling something you wouldn’t think would clear the shelves as well as it is doing.
And, let’s just say, it will never run out of stock…
So, assuming people like her product, and customer service, she’ll always have a business from her sales. What’s her product line? You might ask…
Selling her own farts in a jar. Yep, you read that right. She sells her flatulence for money.
In an interview with Buzzfeed, the tv personality admitted that over the years, she’s had some pretty wacky requests.
“Over the years, I’ve gotten a few messages from men and women wanting to buy my worn bras, panties, hair, bathwater, etc. I thought farts were super niche, but also something fun, quirky, and different! It’s almost like a novelty item!” she admitted.
Matto is very open about her business on social media as she tells her followers that she likes to: “Get things rolling with some beans, a protein muffin, sometimes even a yoghurt, less sugar is better, some hard boiled eggs, and today I decided to make myself a protein shake with some yoghurt added to it.”
“Ugh, I was feeling it for sure,” she continued on before saying that she’s “very smart” and loves to read while waiting for her farts to brew.
She loves to add flower petals to her fart jars once she’s let rip, and gives her customers a personalized note, too.
And in another video, she answered questions people had about her new business adventure.
“The 1st question I get asked a lot is ‘how long do the farts last,’ and the smell is most prominent for the 1st 2 days, but as I like to say 1 whiff makes memories that last a lifetime,” she said.
And in telling followers why people actually spend their money on her farts in a jar, she says it’s because she has a “really good personality”…
And because she’s “hot.”
However, although Matto’s business may be booming with customers, her success may be over…
She was recently hospitalized for trying to fart too much…
Matto has announced that she will be retiring from selling farts after she was hospitalized for doing it too much, LADbible reports.
Matto ended up in the emergency room after experiencing shooting pains in her chest.
The outlet reports that doctors performed blood tests and an electrocardiogram on Matto to find out the cause of her pains.
And as a result, she was later told that the symptoms were caused by excess gas as a result of her diet of beans, eggs and banana protein shakes.
Matto spoke with Jam Press where she explained she thought she was in her “final moments.”
“I thought I was having a stroke and that these were my final moments. I was overdoing it,” she said.
She told the outlet that she could “tell that something was not right” when she was lay down and “could feel a pressure in my stomach moving upward.”
“It was quite hard to breathe and every time I tried to breathe in I’d feel a pinching sensation around my heart,” she said. “And that, of course, made my anxiety escalate.”
She called her friend to ask if they could drive her “to the hospital because I thought I was experiencing a heart attack.”
Once there, Matto told doctors about her diets and then it was “made clear that what I was experiencing wasn’t a stroke or heart attack but very intense gas pains.”
“I was advised to change my diet and to take a gas suppressant medication, which has effectively ended my business,” she added.
And now, in an interview with TV host Steph McGovern on her Channel 4 show Steph’s Packed Lunch, Matto has shared her secrets on creating a successful business.
But people still can’t take her seriously.
“I had a YouTube channel for about eight years and a lot of my fans that were into me were asking for strange items, articles of clothing,” Matto said in the interview, as per the Daily Star.
At 1 point, the influencer said she had sad news to share, with Mcgovern asking if she’d “lost the ability to fart.”
Giggling, the influencer continued on to say that after such a massive amount of orders, she had consumed too much protein in trying to fulfill her customer’s needs, and ended up in the emergency room.
But, she did say that before the little farting disaster, she did have it down to a “pretty good science.”
“I bought these fabric flower petals and I fart directly on them because the fabric really captures the scent better,” she said.
And some clients would even request changes to her diet so as to provide them with aromas they would love.
We’ve got to say, there are some pretty strange people out there…
And in a Youtube video, she even shared customer reviews.
“Here’s 1 of the first reviews I’ve gotten, this 1 is from a client from mine that has been a client for many years,” she began on her channel.
“B said ‘I just got my order gorgeous and I just have to say wow, first of all, you’re beauty and business savviness is something to be admired. When I saw you were selling your precious gasses, I knew I couldn’t pass it up, but now, as I hold a jar in my hands, it is without a doubt the most precious possession of mine. I will cherish it, thank you for this opportunity to purchase this piece of you,” the reviewer said.
It’s a shame they won’t be getting anymore farts out of her for a while.
