Alex Meyers is an American YouTuber born on 17 May 1988, in Sioux City, Iowa. He’s known for his animated videos and reviews of series and movies.

Early Life

First Steps

Not much is known about Alex Meyers’ early life, including his family and educational background. It’s only known that he used to be a chubby kid, though he lost weight during his early teen years.

In 2006 he moved to Japan after saving money from his job in a call-center. He supposedly has been working in the tech field since then, though it’s unknown if he pursued a higher education in Japan.

His YouTube subscribers have been curious about his life in Japan, and what his experiences are living there. In one of his videos he affirmed there’s nothing out of the ordinary about his life in the foreign country: ‘It’s hard for me to really quantify what would be ‘weird’ or different for you, because I’m so used to it at this point, that whenever I go back to the US I’m like ‘this place is weird’.’

Although he has grown used to the Japanese lifestyle during the several years he has been living in the Asian country, Meyers admits there are various things about the place he sometimes finds strange. He affirms Japanese people treat him ‘like a walking free English lesson’ by talking in the foreign language when they see him in public places: ‘Whenever I see this happens, I’m always really confused as to how they imagine this scenario going’.

Career

Tech Job

Since 2012 Alex Meyers has been working in a pharmaceutical business based in Tokyo. He is part of the information technology (IT) department of said enterprise, and although he admits his job nowadays involves working on internal tech support, his beginnings in the company weren’t peaceful, as his job consisted of answering ‘phone calls from troubled clients.

Beginnings on YouTube

In 2015 Alex Meyers started his self-named YouTube channel.

The first video he uploaded in July that year was entitled “The History of GFW Radio”, and was dedicated to the legendary “Games For Windows”, which was one of the first podcasts of the internet created to help PC gamers. Meyers’ second and third videos were a continuation of this topic, and the video-saga ultimately led him to gain his first 100 subscribers.

For the following two years Alex Meyers’s videos were on a variety of topics such as movies, series, games, anime, music and even politics. At the time he was still trying to find his niche content and the key format, which would set his videos apart from other YouTubers.

Concentrating in such a wide variety of themes and not deciding his trademark format soon enough wasn’t proving to be positive for his channel, though. His audience was growing, but not as fast as he would have liked: ‘Nothing worked you know, nobody really cared that much about what I did.’

As his channel was far from becoming big and famous, Meyers focused on learning animation as a way to improve his professional portfolio. His first animated-cartoon video was uploaded several months later, when he couldn’t find a way to criticize the second season of the series “Riverdale” with a serious format: ‘I can’t make a serious motion graphic video essay about something and just talk about how dumb it is,’ said Meyers in a video in commemoration of his third anniversary on YouTube, also adding that he assumed people would hate the video as the animation was ‘crappy’.

Meyers couldn’t have imagined things were going to turn out differently for him. After several hours of sharing the video, he woke up with hundreds of notifications from people who loved it: ‘Everyone was watching my video. I got tons of emails . Everyone was like ‘this is funny,’ ‘this is hilarious,’ ‘do another one’.’

The positive reception his video-critique to “Riverdale” generated was followed by a sudden growth in the number of his subscribers. This new audience also supported the content Meyers uploaded next, which greatly helped him to maintain his focus in only one niche.

Growth on YouTube

Alex’s YouTube channel has been growing exponentially since 2018, thanks to his first animated video. He passed from having approximately 2,000 subscribers in 2017, to gain almost 500,000 subscribers in less than a year.

Since then Alex has been focused on giving his audience deep but entertaining series’ and movies’ reviews. However, this doesn’t mean he wants to change the way these productions are made, quite the contrary, as he told Medium: ‘I think a lot of people think my videos/commentaries are trying to ‘fix’ these movies, but I think they should exist just exactly as they are.’

The work Alex does nowadays on YouTube is well appreciated by his fans and casual audience. However, his biggest reward when it comes to his own content is to be able to create with total freedom: ‘I have a style, format, and an audience to consider, but for the most part I can just make cartoons about whatever I want, or video essays, or live streams.’ He refers to his life as a YouTuber as his ‘dream job’.

To date, Alex Meyers’ channel has accumulated over 300 million views, and he now has over two million subscribers. Regardless of his fame, he has remained humble and receptive to criticism.

Podcast

In August 2020 Alex Meyers started his own podcast – “Doin’ The Devil’s Tango” – which is centered on giving relationship advice to his subscribers, who send him emails telling their personal stories.

Although his podcast episodes – which have been uploaded on its own YouTube channel – haven’t been as widely watched as his other content, it has been well received by part of his loyal audience, interested in these types of topics.

Personal Life

Marriage & Divorce

Alex Meyers introduced his girlfriend – of name unknown – on his YouTube channel in early 2016. At the time he pointed out they had been dating for several months.

The girl – who was apparently Japanese and spoke English fluently – appeared in various videos on his channel. However, when Alex changed his content to focus on series and movies’ reviews, she didn’t appear anymore. The couple married in early 2018 though, as Alex announced on Twitter in June that year, after a fan asked him why he was wearing a ring on his fourth finger: ‘We got married back in January, but had the rings custom made so it took a while.’

Unfortunately, Alex and his now-former wife divorced in early 2020 for unknown reasons. Alex announced the separation during a video livestream on his channel.

Current Relationship

Several months after the divorce, Alex tweeted that he had a new girlfriend, and in November 2020, his fans finally met the girl when he posted a pic of them together.

Net Worth

Alex Meyers has an estimated net worth of $800,000, which is the result of his career as an IT tech worker, and from the income he has gained through his YouTube videos.

Physical Appearance

Alex Meyers is a man of white ethnicity who has dark-brown hair and blue eyes. His height and current weight are unknown.

Face Reveal

As Meyers’ most watched videos are animations, people new to his content assume he doesn’t reveal his face to his audience. This assumption is however false, as he has been open about showing his face in his videos since his early years on YouTube.

Interesting Facts

He and his ex-wife used to own a dog named Charlie. However, after the divorce she left with the dog.

He affirms he wasn’t considered physically attractive in his teens.

“Sharkboy & Lavagirl” is a movie he says he doesn’t want to watch again after making a review of it.

When asked what he would do if he was YouTube’s chief executive officer, he said he would change the way the platform deals with copyright issues, as he deems the current process as ‘unfair’.

He thinks having moved to Japan so young helped him to improve as a person: ‘I never had that ‘crazy early 20s’ time that most people had, but I feel like it made me a much better person in the long run.’

Started with TheLegit.org in April 2023. Previously, Executive Editor at Echoes Media. Holds a Journalism degree from New York University.

Naked Truth of Paris Dylan Roxanne – Catfish, Biography

Published

on

Who is Paris Roxanne?

Paris Dunn was born on 21 February 1994, in Riverside, California, USA, and is a social media personality, but best known for rising to fame in 2011 after becoming involved in a catfishing scandal that nearly destroyed the career of then NBA-player Chris Andersen. The scheme turned out to be an international investigation to find the culprit.

The Net Worth of Paris Roxanne

As of early-2020, Paris Roxanne’s net worth is estimated to be over $1 million, earned through success in her various endeavors. She later found further fame through social media, which opened opportunities for her to work as a model.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B9w61e7hT_q/

She also probably benefits from the success of her current partner, singer Don McLean, who has a net worth estimated to be over $50 million.

Early Life and Chris Andersen

Paris grew up in Southern California and lived a life relatively out of the spotlight. At a young age she aspired to become a model, and set up various online accounts showcasing her attractive qualities especially her looks. She gained a small following online but things changed when she was suddenly contacted by National Basketball Association (NBA) player, Chris Anderson.

Chris Andersen, also known as the Birdman, found fame playing in the NBA for teams such as the Denver Nuggets, at the time the two met online. Andersen was noted for his career resurgence, rising from issues with drugs to finding himself a part of several high profile teams including the Miami Heat with which he would win a championship. Other teams he played with include the Memphis Grizzlies and the New Orleans Hornets. After retiring from the NBA, he found more work as a player in The Big 3 League.

The Catfish Scheme

Surprised that a celebrity was contacting her, Roxanne immediately began chatting with Andersen.

They exchanged messages back and forth and she lied about her age, claiming that she was already 21 even though she was only 17 at the time. She was also contacted online by someone claiming to be Andersen’s best friend named Tom Taylor, who urged that the two should meet up. Eventually her conversations with Andersen escalated and the two began exchanging more private content, sending each other nude photos. The two planned to meet up, and Taylor also encouraged her to travel to him so that they could hang out.

The date eventually arrived and the two had sex though there were times that she was confused about some of their conversations.

The basketball player seemed to talk about people and events that she couldn’t recall, but just brushed it off as some eccentricity. Following her return home, she got messages from Taylor and she told him that she was probably not interested in meeting with Andersen anymore as another basketball player was contacting her and she was interested in meeting him.

The Investigation

Taylor began messaging Paris with increasing frustration, desperation and anger, sending her death threats and suddenly came off aggressive. According to him, he had a copy of her nude photos that Andersen shared with him, and that he was going to expose her to the internet. Fearing for her life, she told her mother and the two approached the police with the information they had.

On Andersen’s end, he began getting messages about someone claiming to be Paris’ mother who informed him that she was underage and that they were going to the authorities to report him. The player sent the message to his lawyer who quickly stood up against the extortion. Despite that, Andersen sent her around $3000 in hopes of keeping things quiet. Eventually, with the information Paris had sent to the police, an investigation was underway and a search of the player’s home revealed that he didn’t know anyone named Tom Taylor. Police then traced their phones and discovered that they weren’t talking to one another, but their messages were being filtered through another person living in Canada, the one pretending to be Tom and pretending to be Paris’ mom.

Arrest and Conviction

While Andersen didn’t have any problem with their sexual encounter as she was of legal consent age in Colorado, the photos he had of her might be construed as a form of child pornography. With investigations, things were tense because if judgment were to be put on him, it would mean the end of his NBA career. Police eventually ruled him out as a conspirator or a suspect, but also as a victim in the case.

The police discovered the true culprit in Manitoba, Canada; a woman named Shelly Chartier. She was a social outcast living with a bedridden mother, and only had a computer with internet for her entertainment.

She discovered how to catfish a few years back, pretending to be several personalities online such as a YouTuber, reality star Brody Jenner, and a Playboy Playmate. Because the US law enforcement didn’t have jurisdiction there, she was arrested by Canadian police, and spent a year in prison in Canada.

The following events proved unusual, as she seemed to have become reformed after her stint in prison, regretting her actions of catfishing. She also found a husband from New York who visits her frequently though he cannot stay for long as he isn’t a Canadian citizen. She also can’t visit the US as she would be tried for extortion if she sets foot in the country, leading to a possible 25 years in prison.

Paris Roxanne Today

After a few years away from the spotlight, Roxanne finally fulfilled her dream of becoming a social media personality. The fame she got with her case with Andersen helped her career significantly. Their story was even featured on shows such as “Catfish” and “20/20”. In recent years, she gained attention once more, as she started a relationship with the singer Don McLean. The relationship was noted for their large age gap, with McLean being over 70 years old while she is still in her 20s. Before becoming partners, he was married twice and has two children from his second marriage.

Naked Truth of Instagram Star – Ana Lorde – Who is she?

Published

on

Who is Ana Lorde?

Ana Lorde was born on 15 July 1988, in San Diego, California, USA, and is a social media personality as well as a glamour model, best known for her account on Instagram which has over two million followers. She is a proclaimed ‘world’s biggest boobs’ award winner and also does private adult shows for paying subscribers.

The Riches of Ana Lorde

As of early-2020, Ana Lorde’s net worth is estimated to be over $700,000, earned largely through a successful online career. She earns an increasing monthly salary thanks to her online adult work, while she also gains sponsorships and other opportunities thanks to her huge following on Instagram.

Online Beginnings

Ana grew up in California, and at a young age developed a love for adventure. She was raised in a very liberal environment, and eventually developed a desire to pursue a career as a model. Unlike the traditional modeling route most people are accustomed to, she opted to become a glamour model, models who are known for flaunting their body and figure. Many glamour models engage in near-nude or nude photoshoots, often wearing minimal clothing such as bikinis or sleepwear.

One of the reasons for her quick rise to fame is her large breasts, which many of her followers found appealing.

She discovered the website Instagram, and began posting regularly on the site, often displaying her large breasts, though kept on the borderline of what was acceptable on the popular photo-sharing site. Her followers grew significantly in number over the years, and this attracted several companies and publications to her. She then decided to expand her reach further, by creating accounts on other online sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Publication Features

Lorde added more to her growing resume as she was contacted by the publication “Playboy”, which did a feature photo shoot of her for the magazine, one of the most recognized brands in the world.

https://www.instagram.com/p/B-h7RK9pOLx/

The magazine established by Hugh Hefner is one of the major factors of the sexual revolution. Many women who’ve posed for the magazine consider a feature on “Playboy” as one of the peaks of beauty, attractiveness and fame, due to the reputation the magazine has built, featuring some of the most attractive women in the world. She became featured in an international edition of the magazine in Serbia, visiting one of their key mansion locations there.

Ana has also been featured in “FHM” or For Him Magazine, the men’s magazine known for its annual feature of the 100 sexiest women in the world, often including top models, celebrities, athletes, online personalities and many others.

Another magazine she’s been featured in is “Maxim”, which is on par in popularity with the other publications, and is a men’s magazine based in New York City, also known for featuring women who are at the top of their careers. These magazines have a few of the largest and widest circulations around the world.

Adult-Oriented Content

One of the main ways Ana earns her income is through adult-oriented content, which can be accessed through paid monthly subscriptions. She uses the Snapchat app as her primary app due to its features on privacy. The app allows users to post photos and videos for a short period of time before they become unavailable.

It quickly became a popular app due to its implementation of augmented reality. Eventually, the app started offering a new feature called Snapcash, which allows its users to earn income for exclusive content. Since the introduction of this feature, it has become a popular hub for porn stars and adult content creators. With its popularity, it has become one of the biggest parts of the online porn industry, responsible for helping bring back income to sex workers, as they gain money directly as opposed to using porn companies.

To help promote her nude and adult-oriented content on Snapchat, she also used her Twitter account to become a key marketing tool to promote her content, since Twitter doesn’t employ a many restrictions on the type of content people can put out.

Users can promote these types of content, provided that Twitter warns users before they are able to view such uploads.

Recent Endeavors and the Social Media Sex Industry

In recent months, Lorde has been more active in posting online content, and promoting her online shows. This is due to the increased online activity as people are mostly homebound to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Models and other Instagram personalities are also mostly at home, so they have to improvise by making more content while at home, or increasing their activity as seen with many sex workers and adult stars.

Studies have shown that social media has increasingly become a hub for sex workers to migrate to due, due to their ease of access and the popularity these types of websites generate. By complying with the policies of a website such as Instagram, they can advertise their services suggestively, and use the popular platform as a stepping stone to help bring money in. Instagram has also been a concern for others who know of women who have accrued luxurious lifestyles through becoming online prostitutes, serving only the most luxurious and wealthy of men.

Advertisement

These interactions often can’t be tracked due to how some apps promote privacy, and do not store any data about conversations to avoid any breach.

Personal Life

Ana Lorde is single, and doesn’t talk about any past or present romantic endeavors. There are rumors that she may be interested in women due to her promotion of the work of others who have a similar career to hers. She promotes the work of Dakota James a lot, which has led to some rumors that the two are either close friends or something else is going on behind the scenes. This, however, has not been confirmed.
