Alex Ernst Bio

(YouTube Star)

Birthday: July 17, 1996 (Cancer)

Born In: Belle Plaine, Minnesota, United States

For the popular young YouTuber Alex Ernst, life seems to be a constant celebration! He lives in Los Angeles, the city of dreams, and has a bunch of friends with whom he gets into some of the craziest shenanigans ever recorded and posted on any social media platform. Alex is the roommate of fellow YouTuber and Viner David Dobrik, and makes regular appearances on David’s immensely popular vlogs. Alongside Jason Nash, Scotty Sire, Zane Hijazi, Toddy Smith, and a few others, the duos views the world through their lenses, and are so dedicated to their art that they would go to unimaginable lengths to get that perfect shot, to record that perfect moment of comedic nirvana. As is often the case, they all end up recording the same event, and it is fascinating to see what happened through different perspectives. It is important to note here that unlike everyone else in the group, Alex doesn’t have an active vlog on YouTube at present. But with his inherent charisma, and brash, sardonic attitude, he has won over millions of hearts.

The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
Alex set up his YouTube account back in 2009. In the following years he became a contributor to the collaborative channel ‘OurPizzaGang’, taking up the Tuesday slot. He started making short 6-second videos for Vine in 2013. Although ’OurPizzaGang’ stopped posting content in 2014, Alex shot to fame as a Viner. At the height of its popularity, his account had more than a million followers, and even now, it still sports 934K followers. His Twitter and Instagram accounts are updated daily, and have 366K and 763K followers respectively. More than 282K people follow him on Facebook! After moving to Los Angeles, Alex soon became a part of David Dobrik’s daily vlog. One of the running themes there is Alex’s love life, or rather, lack of it. He portrays a somewhat angrier version of himself who walk around their house without a shirt almost all the time, making frustrated expressions. Following his YouTube popularity, Alex made an appearance on Jason Nash’s directorial venture ‘FML’.

What Makes Alex So Special
Alex has a sandpaper-dry sense of humour. He can come off as aggressive, crass, and a little rude to someone chancing upon David’s channel on an evening stroll through YouTube. Actually these exactly are the traits that make him the perfect foil for David, who is, in contrast, mellow and easy-going. But those who have followed Alex’s journey across Vine, ‘OurPizzaGang’, and now on David’s vlog, know the sense of loyalty he reserves for his friends, and how he can be serious and subdued given proper circumstances. Plus, this young man’s comic timing is nothing short of prodigal! The way he carries himself, the way he talks, and delivers his lines in various skits leave the fans wanting more. He is a natural entertainer who can enthral his audience with absolute ease. Alex is also a talented voice actor with so much potential. He has done impressions of Breaking Bad’s Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, Family Guy’s Peter Griffin, Stewie Griffin, Scooby Doo’s Morgan Freeman, South Park’s Eric Cartman and Jimmy Valmer to name a few. One hidden talent of his came to the fore when Alex made an appearance on the ‘The Gabbie Show’ and sang the parody version of ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ with the host Gabbie Hanna.
Behind the Curtains
Born on July 17, 1996, in Belle Plaine, a city in Scott Country, Minnesota, USA, Alex is the youngest child of Rex Ernst and Anita Schiltz. He has a sister, Emma, and a brother, John. In the early years of his life, his parents got divorced. He graduated from ‘Belle Plaine Senior High School’ in 2014. At some point in future Alex does wish to attend college. The skills he has garnered through years on social media and making entertaining content will likely play a significant role in whatever path he decides to take. But right now, he is enjoying all the attention he is getting from his fans. Alex has a pet white rabbit named Bailey who has her own Twitter and Instagram accounts! This fluffy five inches of cuteness is actually the real star of David’s vlogs, far outshining the human gang with her adorable little self. But don’t tell them that!
