Who is Julianna Grace LeBlanc?
YouTube has something or the other for everyone today. Uploading a video on YouTube, getting a huge number of likes for it and then being a part of it permanently is the new trend adopted by many. Now the video that they want to upload totally depends on them; there are a few who upload videos of their daily life adventures. And then there are other sets of people who are YouTube celebs and all that they do is posting videos of them playing video games. But all of these started only on YouTube and today they are famous.
Juliana Grace LeBlanc, who is better known by the name Annie Grace, is a rising star on YouTube. For those who still don’t know, let us enlighten you that she is the part of the YouTube family channel: Bratayley. Annie is the eldest daughter of the Bratayley family. The channel at present has more than three million subscribers. The channel has all their family members featured in it. Being so busy with their videos, the children are homeschooled. Annie is an aspiring gymnast and that’s what all her videos are about.
The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
Annie is the part of the famous YouTube family channel ‘The Bratayleys’. They today amuse nearly three million subscribers. ‘The Bratayleys’ have two other channels titled, ‘OMMyGoshTv’ and ‘truthplusdare’. Annie’s first original channel was ‘Acroanna.’ This channel was started on 21 October 2008 .In this channel she mainly uploads the videos of her going to gymnastic meets and even tutorials. This channel today has almost one million subscribers and more than a billion likes.
‘OMMyGoshTv’ was actually started by Annie and her sister Hayley. Later their elder brother Logan, who is no more now, joined them. This channel comes up with a theme every week. The theme will be hidden in the video and the members of the channel will chose a random person to guess the theme. If the person is able to guess the theme right they provide them a shutout. ‘OMMyGoshTv’ today enjoys more than 100,000 subscribers;
‘truthplusdare’ is the other channel where again the sisters took the initiative to start it. Logan was a part of this channel too. As the name suggests, this channel is all about truth and dare. Interestingly, truthplusdare today has dedicated each day of the week to different individuals. Sundays are now meant for Bethany G, another popular YouTuber who Annie collaborates with. Similarly the other week days are given to others, wherein each one of them uploads both a truth and dare video on the day, respective to them. So we can conclude that they are the team behind this channel, though it is run by ‘The Bratayleys’. Here each individual will have to answer a truth and then will have to do a dare. For better understanding, suppose Bethany says the truth that she loves dance, she will have to accept a dare that includes dance in it. This game is not unknown to us, as most of us have played the game already. But it is the dare that makes this game interesting as you never know what the dare would be.
