Daniell Tanner or as she is better known, Daniell Tannerites, is a YouTube star and social media personality. She makes regular appearances on her family’s popular vlog channel, ‘Tannerites,’ alongside her parents and six siblings. She also has a personal channel under the username ‘Nelly Knows.’ A native of Utah, Daniell is the third oldest among her siblings. Her parents set up the main channel in July 2015 and began sharing content in August that year. In the ensuing years, the channel has grown exponentially and currently boasts of nearly a million subscribers and over 150 million views in total. Its success has led to the creation of several other channels besides ‘Nelly Knows.’ They have set up a second channel for vlogging, ‘Yawi Vlogs.’ Daniell’s older brother Branson has his own self-titled personal channel. On ‘Nelly Knows,’ Daniell has garnered tens of thousands of subscribers and several million views. She is also on Instagram, on which, despite her sporadic uploads, she has over sixty thousand followers.
Rise to Fame
Daniell’s parents created their original channel, ‘Tannerites,’ on July 28, 2015. Their first video, ‘First day of School, last day of Cancer Radiation!! TANNERITES FIRST VIDEO!’, was posted on August 20, 2015. In it, Daniell’s parents talk about several things, from most of their children returning to school to Daniell’s home-schooling. They also candidly speak about Sarah’s cancer treatment. After the birth of their seventh child, her doctors discovered a tumour in her abdomen. Surgery was subsequently performed to remove it. She also underwent 28 radiation sessions.
By posting well-made videos on a regular basis, the family has managed to attract a large group of faithful viewers, who tune in almost every day to know more about Daniell, her six siblings, and their parents. While it is indeed a concern that the children are growing up in front of the camera, it cannot be denied that their YouTube presence is contributing to their family’s finances.
Some of the most popular videos on the main channel are ‘Baldi's Basics at Granny's Homeschool! | Granny Horror Game and Baldi's Basics in REAL LIFE COMBINED’, ‘Don't Open the Wrong MYSTERY Door MEETS Baldi's Basics in Real Life!’, ‘Last to Be Found WINS CUTE BABY BUNNY!! Tannerites Hide and Seek Game!’, and ‘6 Year OLD CUT Her HAIR OFF!!’.
Their vlogging channel, ‘Yawi Vlogs,’ was set up on June 14, 2017. On it, they have several hundred thousand subscribers and tens of millions of views in total. Daniell created her personal channel, Nelly Knows, on March 12, 2018, and put out the first video on the same day. Titled ‘My first video!!! Welcome to my channel!!!’, it shows her promising her fans that she will post on every Friday. Since then, she has uploaded a variety of content on the channel, including vlogs, challenges, and make-up tutorials.
