Tanner Fox is a young YouTube star who has caught the attention of the internet since 2011. He is a stunt performer and vlogger who is skilled at making relatable and fun content for his ever-growing audience. A man who joyfully admits the internet raised him, Tanner’s willingness to share his life with millions of viewers has been the underlying source of his fame.
For the YouTuber, recording a video is his favourite form of expression. His passion for the creative style began at a young age, and Tanner Fox’s family helped him nurture it, resulting in the internet star we know today.
Tanner Fox’s Family Encouraged His Creativity from a Young Age
How many children can say they got expelled at the age of 11? How many of those had parents who supported them regardless, including the reason for the expulsion? Not many, that is for sure. But this rare backing and encouragement are what made Tanner Fox a YouTube star.
He was born on December 22, 1999, in San Diego, California and he was just nine years old when his father, Bill, separated from his mother, Ronda. His mom, who is now a realtor became a single mother, raising Tanner and his sister, Lindsay, who is one year older than him.
Growing up, Fox loved playing with video cameras. Before their separation, he begged his parents to buy one for him. He eventually sold some of his personal belongings to acquire his first one, a Canon T3i. He wanted a camera to record his life and share on the internet, which at the time, was an emerging tool.
Despite the initial reluctance at getting him a camera, his family allowed him to express his love for shooting videos. But not everyone shared their philosophy for a free rein. At the age of eleven, he was kicked out of a private Catholic school, Sacred Heart School, for filming in class.
But rather than receive punishment and criticism from his family, they opted for homeschooling, allowing him to get an education without the strict rules of traditional schools. This decision has since proved influential. It allowed Tanner Fox to build his online presence at an early age, in a time when most creators are still learning to do so.
His Family Have Followed in His Footsteps
His creativity and passion for online video publishing have also proven infectious, with his mother and sister joining in on the fun. Both sister and mother have appeared in his YouTube videos and created their own thing.
His sister, Lindsay, has a YouTube channel with over 350 thousand subscribers. Her Instagram account has a similar level of following. His mother, Ronda, also has an Instagram account, where she documents her life in videos and photos. It has than 86 thousand followers. The family used to a family dog named Kirby, who also made into the family’s videos and pictures. Unfortunately, it died in July 2018.
Stunts and Relatable Content Made Tanner Fox Famous
His YouTube success now allows him to afford luxurious purchases like a Lamborghini and a Nissan GT-R. Regardless, Tanner Fox’s rise to fame is grounded on one idea – being relatable. Whatever the content of his video might be, he represents young people having fun or those aspiring to.
He created his channel, Tanner Fox, as MTFilms on September 3, 2011, and published his first video six days after. Fox now has more than 1,200 published videos with over 10.3 million subscribers and 2 billion views. On Instagram, he has more than 4.4 million followers. A man who grew up scooter riding, he started by uploading videos of himself performing various stunts.
Over the years, he has routinely performed stunts on hoverboards and skateboards, attracting fans all over the globe. His scooter and skateboard stunts have attracted brand sponsorship from companies like Lucky Scooters, Root Industries, and the Grind Shop.
Other parts of his channel are content forms like vlogging and challenges and pranks. Filming aspects of his daily life, including joyrides with his friends, hangouts with his friends have also contributed to Tanner Fox’s rise to fame. For many, watching the YouTuber interact with his friends and the fun they have is like watching a clip of their lives or one they wish they had. It is both enjoyable and inspiring.
Beyond his content, Tanner’s relationship with his fans has also kept him at the top for years. He has an unwavering love and devotion to them, one that never fails to express in each video. This humility and openness to interaction have resulted in relationships with other YouTube stars like Casey Neistat and Jake Paul. It has also made him a lot of money.
The YouTuber Has a $6 Million Net Worth
Across all major social media platforms, Tanner Fox has more than 12 million followers combined. This level of following and influence has made him one of the highest earners on the internet for brand sponsorships and ad income. It has helped him to a $6 million net worth, one he has spent on luxury cars and a mansion he shares with other YouTubers.
His dominant platform, YouTube, earns him between $116 and $1.9k a day from an average of 463k daily viewers. In a month, that figures can rise to $55.7k and up to $667.8 k a year. Aside from ad revenue, he also makes money from third party sponsorship from brands and companies, some of which we have mentioned earlier.
Aside from ads, Tanner also makes a lot of money from merchandise. He has a store, tfoxbrand, where he sells self-branded clothing and accessories. The success of his YouTube has enabled him to achieve feats like buying his dream car, a Nissan GT-R worth $100k at the age of 16, and added others like a Lamborghini and a Ferrari to his collection.
He was in a Relationship with Avalon Nadfalusi, a Model
In late September 2019, Tanner Fox introduced his millions of fans to his girlfriend, Avalon Nadfalusi. She is an Australian model who self-proclaims as an Aussie baby. In the introductory video, Tanner and Avalon shared that they had been dating for months.
Despite going public with their relationship, Avalon has kept their relationship hush-hush, particularly on her Instagram page. It is presumed to be a necessary compromise for her budding modelling career. She is, however, a regular fixture on Tanner’s.
The Australian bikini model, born on June 15, 2000, is represented by Neon Model Management. She is also a fitness model, with the fitness brand, Fit with Avalon. Since she began her career, she has worked with Babyboo, a major Australian clothing brand, and Bali Body, an Australian skincare and cosmetics company.
However, in May 2020, Tanner posted a video confirming that the couple broke up. The couple reportedly drifted apart over the international travel restrictions because of the 2020 pandemic.
But despite her fame and status, she is not the most famous one to date Tanner so far.
