Who is Sam Hurley?
Sam Hurley is an American social media influencer who has huge following short-form video-sharing platform TikTok. He has uploaded over 400 comedic videos on his TikTok handle @samhurley, which have earned him over 21 million hearts. He also posts videos on YouTube, but is not very active on that outlet. He has an account on cameo.com, through which people can ask him to deliver a message to their loved ones by recording a video for a price. However, he has a reputation for not sticking to the script. Along with a bunch of other popular social media influencers, he is scheduled to visit more than a dozen cities across America as part of the 'Boys of Summer Tour 2019' between July and August 2019.
Rise to Stardom
After being inspired from the journey of popular influencers like Casey Neistat and Jay Alvarrez, Sam Hurley also decided to follow a similar path. He has been active on various social media platforms since 2015. He became a user of the popular app musical.ly even before it merged with TikTok. At that time, he was not very active on the short-form video app and had only about 2000 fans. Following the app’s merger with TikTok, he returned to the platform on October 12, 2018. It was actually after Jay Alvarrez asked his fans to join the app that Sam decided to revive his account. He liked what other people were posting on the platform and soon published a funny TikTok video himself. To his surprise, his followers count increased by thousands within a short span of time.
While his TikTok fame has grown exponentially since October 2018, he also has a sizable following on Instagram. He published his first Instagram post on July 16, 2016, in which he can be seen posing for a selfie with comedian Chris D'Elia. His YouTube channel, which was originally created in May 2015, has only a handful of videos that he started uploading in the summer of 2016. He loves surfing, diving and cliff-jumping, and his early vlogs on YouTube mostly cover these hobbies. He has recently resumed uploading videos on the platform, which includes a Q&A video in February 2019.
