Tyler Schrage as a Person
Tyler Schrage revealed in an interview that he had been bullied a lot throughout high school and middle school. He was thin and weighed just about 130 pounds. He also wore pink and bracelets, which made other boys call him a “faggot.”
When he initially began posting content on social media, he spoke a lot about body positivity but himself found his suggestions difficult to follow. He was demotivated when he saw other people post pictures flaunting their physique.
Thus, one fine day, he stripped down to his underwear, took pictures of himself, and posted them on social media. To his surprise, he did not get a lot of negative comments on his profile.
He lost a lot of friends when he started getting serious about his life and goals. When he left for Los Angeles, his friends distanced themselves from him, thinking he was being a snob for showcasing that he was “being too good for Festus.”
Since Tyler himself has seen celebrities treating their fans badly, he has resolved never to do the same. Once, while giving an interview to a journalist in an In-N-Out outlet, Tyler clicked selfies with his fans enthusiastically.
He once said that he wants to date Jennifer Aniston someday and that he admires her as an actor.
Tyler Schrage has not revealed his sexual orientation yet, despite there being speculations that he is gay. Tyler has confessed that he gets a lot of attention from both girls and boys. He, however, once said his sexuality is none of anyone’s business. He has also stated that he is single but not a virgin.
