The Meteoric Rise To Stardom

Tanner Braungardt started his YouTube channel by mostly posting videos displaying his considerable gymnastic talents on a trampoline. Backflips seemed to be his specialty. He then moved on to various challenges where he posted videos of crazy acts based upon the requests of his viewers. The rising YouTuber seems to be a sucker for drama, drama, and more drama! His video featuring him jumping into a bathtub full of Coca-Cola while his friends emptied packets of Mentos into it earned a record 22 million views!

As of now, he has also started uploading personal vlogs detailing his musings and life almost daily. The vlogs have accrued massive viewership and have certainly added more to Tanner’s popularity. Despite being young, he already owns a fine collection of supercars which includes the Audi R8, Dodge Challenger, and Lamborghini Huracan.

What Makes Tanner So Special

Tanner has gathered quite a huge fan following in the short time he has been active on social media and there are several reasons behind it. First is his prankster avatar which sort of portrays him as this very cute imp who will engage your attention instantly. Second is his tall, lean (yet fairly muscular), and roguishly adorable looks that teenage girls seem to find irresistible. They regularly flock outside his house in Augusta, sometimes by the carload, just to catch a glimpse of Tanner. The final reason for Tanner’s immense popularity is the attention he showers back on his fans. He takes all their suggestions into account and plans his content based on that. All in all, it’s a really appealing combination that Tanner’s fans just can’t get enough of!

Beyond Fame

Though Tanner’s videos of doing insane jumps and backflips seem beyond cool to the teenagers, their parents definitely don’t share the same levels of adoration. As a teenager, Tanner has had to face his share of bullying at school. That was especially after he posted his first couple of videos. His peers at school called it lame and mocked him constantly. It did bother him a lot at that time, but he has since long grown up and accepted the fact that people will criticize you no matter what, and the wisest thing will be to not pay heed to them.

Behind The Curtains

Tanner Braungardt hails from the town of Augusta in Kansas and has two siblings, brother Tristan, and sister Taylor, both of who feature in Tanner’s vlogs regularly. His parents, Kim and Jamie Braungardt, divorced when he was four years old and the Braungardt kids came to live with their mom. Mom Kim is extremely supportive of Tanner’s dreams and aspirations. Tanner attended Augusta High School. He started dating Paris Anderson, a fellow resident of Augusta, Kansas. He even invited her to some of his videos. Tanner even did a video featuring the hate comments she received on her Instagram account and said that it still bothers him when viewers target people close to him. However, the couple decided to part ways in 2017.

According to Tanner, he started doing flips because was bored of other sports. He earlier used to play basketball and baseball, along with some wrestling, but that didn’t keep him entertained for long. He started “jumping on the trampoline” when he was 6 and by the time he reached the age of 7, he had mastered front flips. In one of his early Q&A videos, Tanner expressed his utter displeasure at the thought of working behind a desk. He also mentioned how making it big on Youtube would be like a dream come true. Well, that dream certainly did come true.
