We can safely say that Jacob is going to be the next big name amongst the young YouTube vloggers.

He also posts a number of DIY videos on his vlog which are particularly funny. Jacob started his YouTube blog in the middle of the year 2013 and in the next 3 and half years he has successfully added a considerable number of subscribers to his channel. The huge number of views on his latest YouTube videos clearly shows how the popularity of this vlogger has sky rocketed in the last few years.

The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
Jacob Cruikshank was a normal school going kid before he started his YouTube channel in Mid-2013 when he was just 12 years old. Starting a career this early, even before hitting his teen, certainly changed his life. The normal kid and the younger brother of the popular teenage director, actor and YouTube star, Lucas Cruikshank, was now going to be something more and with his hard work he has actually been able to enjoy popularity across the world.
Jacob was always impressed by his elder brother, Lucas, and he was the person who guided him on the right direction from a very young age. Lucas certainly has a good contribution to what Jacob has achieved today. For Jacob, it is just the beginning. He has started his career only few years back hence the scope of growth is exponential for him.
Jacob has never made his future plans clear but just like any normal American teenagers he seems to be confused about what he would like to do next. He has also not revealed if he wants to turn to a director and actor in future, just like his brother Lucas.

In the beginning of 2017, the-then 15 year old Jacob declared himself openly as “gay”. He revealed his sexuality to his family and Snapchat followers, which certainly created some controversy. Afterwards, Lucas, his elder brother, who is also a gay, came up with a video “my brother’s gay too?” which confirmed that what Jacob had said to his followers was nothing less than serious.
However, according to some critics, 15 years is too early to actually realize one’s true sexuality, even if the person is a celebrity and it might be nothing more than a good publicity stunt to increase his followers and fan base. On the other hand, Lucas has made it clear in his video that in the family everyone was already aware that Jacob is a gay.
Jacob Cruikshank was born on 11th of March, 2001 in Nebraska, USA, to Dave and Molly Cruikshank. He has a happy family of 10 members, including his parents, 5 sisters and two brothers, Lucas and Ethan. His mother is an obstetrics nurse and his father is an executive engineer. Jacob’s parents are sincere and serious about how their kids spend their money and they keep an overall track of the lifestyle of their children. Just like his brother Lucas, for Jacob as well, his family works as the main support behind his success. His siblings are very supportive of him and Jacob always looks up to them. His family has also happily accepted the fact that he is a gay.
