This will shock you.
Following the success of his viral YouTube series 'Pengest Munch' in 2016, Elijah Quashie, a.k.a. the ‘Chicken Connoisseur’, is making a big return on Channel 4.
In the new series called 'Peng Life', Quashie hilariously reviews a variety of items that "separates the street from the elite".
He will hit the streets with his twin friends Nelson and Wilson to test out some of the most deluxe experiences money can buy.
However following the success of his original video series, fans on social media were shocked to discover the real age of the famous 'Chicken Connoisseur'.
At a glance, most people would gauge him at around 15 or 16.
However he is actually 25-years-old, with Companies House records listing his birth date as May 1993.
And it's safe to say that people were shocked.

Nothing has shocked me more than learning that The Chicken Connoisseur is actually 25 and not a 15 year old school boy cutting about in chicken shops on his lunch break— georgia fayé (@georgiahanley_) August 8, 2018

Regardless, we'll make sure we keep up to date on Quashie's ongoing quest to find the pengest munch out there.
