Darren Fizz is an English YouTube star, family vlogger, and social media personality. He has gained popularity for being the patriarch of the YouTube channel, ‘Family Fizz’, on which he, his wife, and their children post adventure vlogs, experiments, challenges, and various other types of content. The Fizz family have travelled all over the world and made videos of their journey, sharing them with their 1.9 million subscribers on a regular basis. Darren and his partner in crime, the matriarch of the family, Georgie, was active on social media as vegan-lifestyle-related content creators before they switched to family vlogging. In fact, the original name of their channel was ‘VeganFitnessCom’. It was created in June 2014, and the oldest video on it was uploaded in December 2016. The channel has grown since then and currently boasts over hundreds of millions of total views. Their fame on YouTube has found its way to other social media platforms as well. The family sells its merchandise through its own website, treasureothers.com.
Rise to Fame
In 2012, Darren Fizz saw a documentary named ‘Earthlings’. Narrated by Joaquin Phoenix, the film revolves around humanity’s over-dependence on other animals as pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and for scientific research. It drastically affected him, and he has been a vegan since then. Georgie, his then-girlfriend and current wife, and their children also adopted the vegan lifestyle.
Before they made the transition to family and travel vlogging, Darren and Georgie used to put out content related to bodybuilding and healthy vegan lifestyle. Over the years, they have set up several other YouTube ventures, including ‘Vegan Fitness TV’ and ‘Vegan Family TV’. When they created their main channel on June 24, 2014, it was known as VeganFitnessCom. They changed it to Family Fizz before they started vlogging. Their first video, titled ‘VEGAN KID'S FIRST BURGER KING’, was posted on December 1, 2016. It shows the family getting ready for its relocation from Brighton, UK to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, a city in the Canary Islands, Spain. On April 4, 2017, in a video titled ‘PACKiNG UP TO MOVE COUNTRY’, the family announced that they were moving back to Brighton. In the ensuing years, they have been to China, Norway, and the US. They presently reside in Dubai, UAE.
What sets the Fizz family apart from many other family vloggers on YouTube is the versatility of their content. Family vlogs can get quite dull and repetitious, as most of the videos are filmed in and around the house of the vloggers. Darren and his family, on the other hand, are constantly on the move. This has allowed them the chance to film at new locations, meet new people, and try out new things, earning them a substantial viewership in the process.

Family & Personal Life
Darren Fizz was born on December 5, 1983, in England. Little else is known about his family and upbringing. In a video titled ‘THE TRUTH ABOUT OUR FAMILY’, posted on August 5, 2018, Darren spoke briefly about his family, basically stating that they were not part of his life any more.
Darren and Georgie are raising three daughters together, Mia, Sienna, and Karma. Georgie is presently pregnant with their fourth child. Prior to meeting Darren, she was in a relationship with another person and became pregnant at the age of 16. Mia was born on December 4, 2004. At some point after this, Darren and Georgie became acquainted and started dating. In the absence of Mia’s father, Darren has served as a paternal figure in her life.
Sienna, Georgie and Darren’s first child together, was born on September 16, 2011. They welcomed Karma into the world on July 10, 2018. The couple announced that they were expecting their fourth child in a video titled ‘FINDING OUT WE'RE PREGNANT!’, which was uploaded on June 11, 2019.
Both Darren and Georgie were apparently drug-users, but after Sienna’s birth, they decided to bring about changes in their lives. They are currently teetotallers and two of the most vocal advocates of veganism on the platform.
Due to their extensive travel, the family leads virtually a nomadic life. As of 2019, they have not permanently settled down yet. This has garnered the Fizz family some criticism. Many of their regular viewers feel that this lifestyle is not healthy for the children, as the constant moving from one place to another has bereft them of the stability of a home. They have expressed their doubts about their education as well. However, Darren and Georgie have pointed out that the girls are homeschooled and argued that they are receiving a much better education by actually experiencing the world than they ever could have if they were cooped up in a classroom.
After being together for almost a decade, the couple exchanged wedding vows in March 2019 in a ceremony held in the Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA.
