He is a social media star, YouTuber and a hair stylist, who is known for having worked with many celebrities, such as the pop singer Vanessa Hudgens, the model Heather Marks and the actress Shay Mitchell.

Childhood and education

Brad was raised in Franklin alongside his younger brother Eric, by their father who was a hairdresser and the owner of his own salon, and their mother who taught history at a local high school.

Brad became interested in modelling at a very early age, and because he was always kind of girlish, he was bullied at both elementary and high school. He found comfort in listening to music, being a member of the school’s drama club, and practicing his hair styling skills on wigs which his father bought for him. He matriculated in 2012, and decided not to pursue a college degree but to work on his career.

Career as a social media star and a hair stylist

Brad launched his Instagram account in 2013, and immediately started uploading pictures of his works – there are currently over 1.5 million people following him, while he has uploaded around 120 pictures onto the account.

Most of the pictures have his face in focus, as Brad believes he is very attractive and has beautiful eyes and hair. Brad is also using his Instagram account to promote his shampoo, XMondoHair.

He is also very active on YouTube, launching his channel on 28 April 2015, and there are currently over 6.1 million people subscribed to the channel, while Brad has gathered over 850 million views of all his videos combined. He uploads a variety of videos, including tests of cheap drugstore shampoos, reactions to do-it-yourself hair dyeing and giving tips and advice – two of his most popular videos are “HAIRDRESSER REACTS TO JOJO SIWA RUINING HER HAIR FOR 11 MINUTES STRAIGHT”, which has been seen over 20 million times since 6 October 2018 and “Hairdresser Reacts To Americas Next Top Model Makeovers S.24” which has also been seen around 20 million times since 28 January 2018.

Brad is also active on Facebook, and has gathered nearly three million followers on the network, while he’s also been active on Twitter since May 2017, on which there are currently around 160,000 people following him. He is lately devoting a lot of his spare time to his TikTok account, onto which he mostly uploads funny videos related to hair – there are over 6.2 million people following him, and he has gathered over 167 million likes. TikTok is currently one of the most popular social media networks on the internet, used for uploading short videos which are in most cases funny, but can also be scary, educational or motivational.

Brad is also selling his merchandise on the internet, including shirts, hoodies and other products.

Love life and boyfriend

Brad has known he is gay since a very early age, but kept it hidden throughout elementary school, and not long after enrolling at a high school, he started seeing a girl and began telling everyone that he’s bisexual – only a couple of his closest friends knew that he was actually gay. After he tried to flirt with the boy he liked and told him that he was actually gay, the boy told everyone in the school about it, and this somewhat destroyed Brad, although most of his friends actually accepted him for what he is. Not long after that, Brad came out to his parents who already knew he was gay and were entirely okay with everything.

Brad hasn’t talked about any boys or men he might have dated, but it’s believed that he is currently seeing a man as several of his fans claim to have seen the two spending time together and kissing at a gay club in Los Angeles, but as Brad hasn’t commented on these rumors, he is single as of October 2020, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.

Hobbies and other interests

Brad spends a lot of his free time at the gym, as he has several training sessions each week and is also following a strict diet – he doesn’t eat anything that has sugar in it (except fruits which have natural sugar), doesn’t eat fast food and rarely drinks alcohol.

Brad is a lover of animals, with dogs being his favorites, and he has a pet dog which can occasionally be seen featured in the pictures he uploads onto his Instagram account.

Brad is also keen on watching movies, and a few of his favorite actors are Neil Patrick Harris, Luke Macfarlane and Mitchell Anderson – a few of his favorite movies are “Brokeback Mountain”, “Call Me By Your Name” and “Moonlight”.

Age and height

Brad is 25 years old. He has brown hair which he has dyed numerous colors, his eyes are brown as well, and he is 5ft 11ins (1.8m) tall while he weighs around 155lbs (71kgs). As of October 2020, his net worth has been estimated at over $2 million.

Twin brothers – who is Eric Mondo?

Eric Mondo is not Brad’s twin brother as many people believe – he was born on 17 April 1992 in the US, his zodiac sing is Aries and he holds American nationality. He is a model, Instagram star and a YouTuber, who has collaborated with his brother on many occasions.

Eric grew up being interested in hair styling just as his brother, and is today perhaps best known for his Instagram account onto which he has gathered over 100,000 followers, and has uploaded around 160 pictures.

Who is Emily Feld?

Emily Feld was born on 17 April 2003, on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, and is a social media personality as well as a model, best known from initially gaining fame through the website Instagram. She is a professional signed with Que Models, and has hundreds of thousands of followers online.

The Net Worth of Emily Feld

As of early-2020, Emily Feld’s net worth is estimated to be over $150,000, earned through a successful career in modeling. She’s gained high valued contracts with her work, as well as online sponsorships. Her posts on Instagram coupled with her professional endeavors have had a big effect on building her wealth.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B8SzytVAi1I/

Early Life and Career Beginnings

Emily grew up in the Gold Coast Hinterland as the youngest offour siblings, with two older brothers and an older sister. At a young age, she didn’t envision herself as someone who could become a model, but at 16 years of age, she made her first foray into the field unknowingly, when she created an account on Instagram.

The website. which is now one of the most popular social media platforms in the world, is owned by Facebook. It is a more photo and video media-focused platform, with users having the option to share these types of content with the public.

Instagram has been known for creating numerous online personalities, who would go on to have success in fields such as modeling and photography. It is also the home of many celebrities, who enjoy posting about their life without getting too personal or too involved with netizens. Her first post was in 2016, when she posted a photo coupled with an inspirational quote she created.

Rise to Fame

Over the next few months, she started to gain a bit of attention thanks to her attractive looks. She possessed the symmetry required to be a professional model, and showcased that she was willing to do what it takes to also attain the body of a model.

She took boxing classes and went to the gym to help tone her body, and eventually professional photographers started taking notice, and began collaborating with her. As she posted some of the photos taken during these projects, her following grew exponentially, making her one of the youngest Instagram models from Australia.

She often collaborated with Michael Murchie, a well-known photographer based in Australia who also works as a model scout. Some of the models he’s worked with over the years include Mel Oldenburg and Shelby Hamilton.

He became defined by his skill in black and white photography, portraits, and an artistic depiction of the female body. Her consistent work with Michael led Emily to be introduced to the Que Models agency, known for representing numerous photo and catwalk models with nearly two decades of experience. They have models from all around the world, with agencies in LA, Japan, New York, Paris, Asia, and many others.

Recent Projects

Aside from Instagram, Emily has expanded her reach to other platforms, and began promoting her YouTube channel in 2019.

The video-sharing website is one of the most popular websites internationally, with a huge source of videos ranging across news, vlogs, trailers, and many more. She began posting compilations of her photos and a few videos online, showcasing a bit of her work as well as her training. However, she does not post on it often, nor does she have a regular schedule of uploads, due to her busy schedule as a model.

2019 in particular, saw her work for various magazine photoshoots, and appear on the catwalk in shows across Australia. She’s also traveled to a few locations in Asia; her favorite destination so far is Fiji as she enjoyed the beaches there.

Her Instagram, on the other hand, continues to get regular uploads, often featuring her wearing a bikini or other beachwear while hanging out on the beaches of Australia. She rarely posts other photos, save for a few selfies, showcasing the development of her body, and on rare occasions wearing streetwear while out and about.

Personal Life and Interests

Feld is single and likely to remain that way as she hasn’t shown any interest in dating at the moment. She is still busy with her developing career, and still young with hopefully many years ahead of her. She has expressed a desire to travel more, wanting to visit Europe in particular so that she could witness the Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights as it is more commonly called.

She has also a self-proclaimed nerd, with a love for comic book characters and films, Marvel in particular. She loves watching moves and browsing Netflix during her free time. She confesses to being an indecisive person when it comes to the most mundane decisions.

Due to the sheer volume of work as a model, she doesn’t talk about a lot of the specifics of her job. It is implied through her videos that most of her work is centered in Australia, though she’ll likely consider doing more international projects once she comes of age.

Her zodiac sign is Aries, though descriptions of the sign don’t necessarily fit her personality. While she loves her work as a model, she is an introvert and prefers doing photo shoots where there are very few people on location. She dislikes large crowds, though has learned to manage them as required in her profession. In 2019, she’s done more than just swimwear, as she’s modeled bridal wear and has even done a few avant-garde shows.

Ava Rose – TikTok @avarxseee star with over 1.4M followers

Published

on

Who is Ava Rose?

Ava Rose was born on 11 October 2003, in Canada, and is a social media personality, best known for gaining a huge amount of fame on the platform TikTok. She mainly posts short-form videos including lip-sync videos and short videos akin to the now-defunct platform Vine. Since joining TikTok in early 2019, she has become one of the most recognised personalities on the site.

The Net Worth of Ava Rose

As of early-2020, Ava Rose’s net worth is estimated to be over $100,000, earned through a short but successful career online. Her popularity has led her to numerous opportunities, including modeling projects and partnerships.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B7_u8vbJ3Kp/

Early Life and Online Career

Ava Rose grew up in Canada – her life was mostly quiet and out of the spotlight during her childhood. At the age of 15, she began using the app TikTok, creating her own account and  posting videos. She quickly grew to popularity thanks to her attractive looks and entertaining videos. She often did lip-sync videos and others showcasing her love for dancing. At times she put in a bit more effort, but the general appeal of her channel was her looks coupled with her consistent uploads that attracted the majority of the site’s audience, who are mostly teenagers.

By the end of 2019, the number of her followers had grown to 1.2 million, and just a few months later reached over 1.5 million. This fame has also translated to other websites such as Instagram, on which she often posted similar content, though the difference is that it is mostly photographs of herself. Her popularity has led her to work with several professional photographers.

A History of TikTok

TikTok is a short-form video website on which users can post videos displaying their talents, comedic shorts, or lip-sync videos.

TikTok’s owner – ByteDance – is based in Beijing, China, and has been present in the Chinese market for some time under the name Douyin. However, due to strict Chinese censorship laws, a separate app was created for the international audience. Since its creation, it has become one of the most downloaded websites, particularly in Asia and the US. It is available in 150 markets, and is ranked as the 7th most downloaded app of the decade from 2010 to 2019.

The US version of TikTok originated from another popular service called Musical.ly, which is also a service that was developed in China, though found popularity in the western world.

Like TikTok, musical.ly allowed users to create lip-syncing videos. At the peak of its popularity, it had over 90 million registered users, and was hosting a few social media stars called Musers. However, the site was acquired by ByteDance in 2017, leading to the transition. Many of the former Musical.ly stars, unsure of the transition, went to other established platforms such as YouTube and Instagram.

The TikTok Audience

There was another popular short-form video platform called Vine, known for its comedic clips and lip-syncing.

The service was owned by Twitter during its peak, and was the most popular and relatively unrivaled in terms of the sheer size of popularity. It began to integrate well into the modern culture at the time, creating a phenomenon. However, the app abruptly ceased operations after it was acquired by Twitter, leading to its eventual closure. Many popular Vine users, unlike those from Musical.ly, saw TikTok as the next best venture, and began posting videos there. This led to an exodus of former Vine followers who now went to the new land of TikTok following their preferred content creators.

To date, studies have shown that the majority of the users of the site are under 30 years old; one of the reasons for its impact is due to the influence it has over younger audiences. Its popularity was even noticed by corporations, who started using the platform to gain the younger demographics’ attention. Sub-cultures also started springing up from within the site, as apart from the usual comedy or music videos, there are now TikTok accounts solely dedicated to pets, film, art, and many more.

Ava Rose Now and the Future

Ava Rose seems content to be in the position as one of the rising stars of the platform.

https://twitter.com/Avaxxrose/status/1222624193050624001

She has yet to reach the pinnacle of TikTok, as premiere users have upwards of 20 million followers. While she’s had a few modeling gigs, it has not yet translated to her actually gaining enough of the job to label herself as a professional model. She is not yet signed to an agency, and for now prefers to just post multiple times a day on TikTok. While this is the case presently, many of the top stars of the platform have gone on to find success in their respective careers, with some gaining acting work and collaborations with major companies.

While Ava doesn’t talk a lot about her life outside of the platform, it is believed that she is single. Though she has expressed her interest in romance through some videos, she has not been seen with any potential partner, only shooting videos with her siblings. At 16 she is also still young, so likely not focused on finding a serious romance. She is also likely completing her education, above anything else.

All About Colleen Ballinger’s Ex-Husband – Joshua David Evans

Published

on

Who is Joshua David Evans?

Joshua David Evans was born on 5 April 1984, in Macon, Georgia, USA, and is a YouTube personality, best known for his JoshuaDTV, which serves as a vlog channel. He posts videos on challenges, social issues, music, and many others. He rose to fame in the early 2010s, following his relationship and marriage to internet sensation Colleen Ballinger. The fallout from that marriage proved to be controversial, though his popularity remained.

The Riches of Joshua David Evans

As of early-2020, Joshua David Evans has a net worth estimated to be over $500,000, earned largely through a successful career on YouTube.

Apart from his online work, he’s also pursuing a career in music as the lead vocalist of the band Cat’s Pajamas, and a member of the YouTube boy band The Shadows, alongside Julien Solomita and Arnold Telegaarta in the band.

Early Life and Career Beginnings

Joshua David grew up the middle of three children, raised by their parents in Macon; at a young age, he aspired to pursue a career in the music industry. After matriculating from high school, he enrolled at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA), located in New York and Los Angeles, and known for its specialization in the fields of the performing arts.

After completing his education, Joshua then formed the band Cat’s Pajamas, a musical project that never really took off. In 2008, he discovered the website YouTube which at around the time was just starting to gain popularity online. The website is now one of the highest-traffic sites on the internet, which allows users to share videos with the public which can be viewed, rated, commented on, and more. The website allows users to earn advertising revenue through views and interactions with each video. The success of YouTube and the subsequent success of many of its content creators, known as YouTubers, has helped in building today’s internet culture.

Creating Content and Colleen Ballinger

Initially, Evans’ online content focused more on comedic performances, doing comedy sketch performances and various vids for the entertainment of his few followers. As his popularity grew, he started to give updates on his life and showcased it through vlogs. He also used the platform to share his music, posting covers of several popular songs at the time.

What elevated his online status was when he met a more popular YouTube Colleen Ballinger. The couple met in 2009, but it wasn’t until three years later that the two hit it off.

Colleen became popular through the creation of the online character Miranda Sings, which would eventually become a one-woman comedy act as she toured around the world. Miranda is a satire of YouTubers who don’t have singing talent, but post videos online in hopes of making it big in show business. She is depicted as talentless, eccentric and egotistical. The character’s fame grew so much that Ballinger produced a Netflix series called “Haters Back Off”, which continued to build on her reputation in comedy and acting. The show focused on the origins and family life of Miranda.

Relationship and Rise to Fame

After Joshua David and Colleen began dating in 2012, his popularity surged. His viewer count and fan base grew exponentially after the couple made their relationship public. In response to all of this attention, he began posting content daily as a vlogger, due to a lot of his followers being interested in Colleen’s life behind the scenes.

Soon the couple became an example of an apparently ideal couple or a relationship goal, with their photos, blogs, and seemingly happy relationship envied by many of their fans. Joshua’s increasing online fame also led him to become acquainted with other YouTubers, resulting in the creation of The Shadows, and their sole single “Vlog with Me”.

He also used the platform to continue to promote his music. In 2015 the couple announced their engagement, and they married just a few months later in California. Many thought that it was the dream wedding and dream relationship they’d always wanted.

Fallout and Criticisms

After a year of marriage, Evans and Ballinger’s relationship quickly turned for the worst. The two couldn’t maintain their blissful relationship once they were married, and the couple announced that they were getting a divorce. Many of Ballinger’s followers quickly turned on Joshua, and sided with the more popular star. Evans received a lot of flak and negative comments, with some of his strongest haters bullying him online.

He received death threats as well as hurtful comments, and his mental health started spiraling. Under pressure, he released a video on YouTube that was later deleted, though some people still saved the video on their computers. In the video, he was supposedly going to talk about the truth, but it ended up to be ramblings of a very stressed man, lashing out on all of his haters, and blaming other YouTubers whom he says turned their back on him as soon as they broke up. He didn’t mention any names throughout the rant.

His actions didn’t help him either, as to maintain his strong view count, he started to post clickbait videos referencing his ex-wife, as if the two were still collaborating.

He was criticized for using the relationship to gain money, an accusation that rang throughout their relationship, though this time was heard by a much larger crowd.

Moving On

As months passed, Joshua David’s channel transitioned from hateful and desperate, to more accepting of the events that occurred to him. He began talking about his life with his viewers more openly, and expressing how difficult it was to go through a divorce, especially with a relationship that had lasted for some years. Colleen never talked about their relationship after their divorce, and focused on her growing career.

https://twitter.com/JoshuaDtown/status/1191901830235602945

In 2017, he reconnected with childhood friend Pamela Rodriguez, and the following year they became engaged, and married just a few months later. Ballinger, on the other hand, met actor Erik Stocklin while working on the show “Haters Back Off”. The two married after dating for nearly a year, and they have a child together.

Joshua David continues to post content, with many of his followers sympathetic with what he went through over the years. He now collaborates with his wife in many videos. He’s also released his debut extended play (EP) as a solo artist, called “Seasons”.
