What Makes Jessi Smiles So Special
While growing up, Jessi Smiles was interested in a number of things and wanted to be a ballerina or a basketball player among other things. However, she could never stick to one thing for a long period of time. According to her father, she is hot-headed, but generous, and loves to give much more than she receives. Once ridiculed for her crazy blend of humor, she is now best known for her goofy videos on Vine and YouTube. In the "Storytime" videos, she often shares with her fans hilarious stories about herself, sometimes embarrassing things she might have done while drunk. A large section of her videos contains details about her private life, including her romantic relationships and sexual exploits, sometimes making her family members uncomfortable. However, realizing her difficult journey to where she is now, they have supported her in her pursuits and often appear on her videos. A misfit in school, she gained fame quick on Vine, but attracted a lot of hatred after she had an ugly break-up with Curtis Lepore, following a short but public romance. The way people started to judge her made her so desperate that she left Vine and became a YouTuber, sharing her "insane stories" to a new fan base. She is now determined to bring positive change in the lives of her fans and urges her fans to do the same.

However, her relationship with Viner Curtis Lepore has been the center of controversy for a long period of time.
