Jenna Marbles’ Bio
Jenna Nicole Mourey was born on the 15th of September 1986 in Rochester, New York. She comes from a family of four consisting of her dad, a chemist, her mom, Deborah and elder brother, Devine. Her parents are now divorced. Unlike some other social media stars, Marbles is highly educated. She graduated from Brighton High School in 2004. She, thereafter, moved to Boston where she studied at Suffolk University (obtaining a B.Sc. in Psychology) and Boston University (obtaining an M.Ed. in Sports Psychology and Counselling). Upon graduating from college, Jenna Marbles worked for StooLaLa, the female version of Barstolsports, a satirical sports and pop culture blog. She found it hard paying her rent and took a bunch of side jobs (bartending, go-go dancing and working at a tanning salon) in order to make ends meet. In 2010, she decided to create a YouTube channel. Instead of her real surname, she picked the surname Marbles so that her outrageous posts (for instance, Prank Calling In Sick From Your Fake Job) would not jeopardize her mom’s chances of getting a job. The pseudonym Marbles was gotten from her beloved Chihuahua, Mr Marbles. The first video she posted on the channel was in February 2010 – titled Charles Franklin Marbles is a Sad Sad Man. It received many views and spurred her to continue.
Jenna Marbles got her major breakthrough a few months later when she posted a video – How To Trick People Into Thinking You Are Good Looking. In the video, she runs a steady commentary as she uses makeup to transform herself into an alluring lady. The video went viral (notching 5.5 million views in its first week) and got her the attention of the mainstream media. Since then, Marbles has continued uploading videos. As of December 2018, she has uploaded 430 videos which have been viewed a combined 2.9 billion times. She shoots her videos by herself and topics cover How To’s (How To Avoid Talking To People You Don’t Want To Talk To), gender dynamics (How Men and Women Get Ready in the Morning) and makeup videos (Drunk Makeup Tutorial). Since making it big on YouTube, Marbles has expanded her horizons. She started a brand of dog toys which she named Kermie Worm & Mr Marbles. The brand is named after her beloved dogs – Mr Marbles, Kermit and Peach. She also hosts a weekly music countdown on SiriusXM. Jenna Marbles is also an actress and has featured in (mostly web-based) series and movies such as Epic Rap Battles of History, The Annoying Orange, Ridiculousness, Natural Born Prankster, HeyUSA and Smosh: The Movie. The New York native has also received some awards such as the 2014 viral superstar of the year at the Young Hollywood Awards.
With the millions of subscribers she has and the billions of views she has garnered, there is no doubt that Jenna Marbles is raking in big bucks. It is estimated that Marbles earns between $7.5K to $120.3K in a month and $90.2K to $1.4M a year. Her net worth is currently put at $8 Million. Despite her increased fortune, Marble still remains humble. In addition, she remains true to her fans and turns down paid adverts on her channel.
