Daym is quite secretive when it comes to his childhood, and hasn’t shared any details concerning any siblings and parents but it is believed that both his parents are businesspeople and relatively rich.
Daym grew up eating a lot of fast food as his mother often had no time to prepare lunch – the family would instead order fast food, which was in most cases pizza. Daym attended a local high school at which he was somewhat sporting as he played football and soccer, but never made it to play for the school’s first teams – he hasn’t talked about his further education, but it’s believed that he holds a Business degree which he obtained in 1999.

Daym launched his YouTube channel on 21 May 2010, which is today subscribed to by around 1.35 million people, and numbers over 250 million views of all his videos combined. Most of his videos feature Daym reviewing takeaway fast food, and he does it in a fun way as he believes ‘it’s all about having fun and sharing in some laughs around here’. His two most popular videos today are “Five Guys Burgers and Fries Review” – watched over 10.6 million times since 26 April 2012 – and “FatBurger XXXL 5 GUYS Burger KILLER”, viewed around 5.6 million times since 4 October 2016.

It was in January 2016 that Daym uploaded a video onto his YouTube channel entitled “GOODBYE FAST FOOD REVIEWS”, stating that fast food worsened his health and that he was planning to stop uploading videos, however, he changed his mind two months later and returned to YouTube and to making videos.
