Steven Lim        

Co-founder of Watcher Entertainment & Host/Creator of BuzzFeed Worth It

Steven Lim is an executive producer who joined BuzzFeed Motion Pictures in 2015. He is the creator and host of Worth It, BuzzFeed’s flagship food show that tries three foods at three drastically different price points.

Worth It received a Streamy Award in 2018 for best online food show. The show's popularity has led to it being described by BuzzFeed as a Zagat guide for millennials, and has created extreme upticks in patronage for some restaurants featured on the show.

After the success of Worth It, BuzzFeed launched a spin-off series, Worth It: Lifestyle, which first aired in January 2017 on BuzzFeedBlue, featuring Lim as host and a variety of BuzzFeed employees as co-hosts. The spin-off has the same premise as the original series, except that the hosts try three different experiences and items as opposed to only food.

Additionally, Steven is the producer & director behind Mom vs. Chef, a cooking competition show currently in development with NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment on bringing the web series to broadcast. Prior to working at BuzzFeed, Steven was a chemical engineer who created videos on his personal YouTube channel in his spare time.
