Famous YouTuber Thomas Sanders' fame took off after his impression of Family Guy's Stevie Griffin went viral. Since then, his skits, videos, and songs have lured millions of viewers and subscribers to his channel.
Sanders carries his acting and music aspirations along with his superhit career as an internet celebrity, which by the way is uplifted by his bold confrontations in favor of LGBT groups.
Thomas Sanders was born on April 24, 1989, in Gainesville, Florida, and grew up with his brothers Patrick, Shea, and Christian in Irish Catholic heritage.
Sanders used to appear in school plays and sing in several choruses during middle school, showing his interest in the area from a young age.
Sanders first appeared on Vine as ‘Foster_Dawg’ and later rebranded himself as ‘Thomas Sanders’ after a huge success, gaining 1 million followers on Vine, credit to his Stevie Griffin impression that went viral.
His popular series ‘Musicals in Real Life’, ‘Misleading Compliments’ and ‘Narrating People’s Life’ and many other videos managed to lure 8.3 million followers on Vine. However, after Twitter announced the closing down of Vine he switched his full attention to YouTube where he was already making some videos earlier. He won the Favorite Vine Celebrity Contest in 2014.
Involvement in social Media
On Youtube, Sanders is most popular for his personas “Dad” and “Disney Prince” and has 2,713,550 subscribers on his channel “Thomas Sanders” as of July 2018.
The end of vine propelled Sanders to be a full-time YouTuber and occasional Instagram. Despite the obvious degradation in the number of followers in the transition, the Viner is confident to catch up, as it has not degraded his popularity.
This 8-million-view video should sum up what he does for a living.
Sanders is a star off the internet too, performing in various local musical theaters. He has played various on-stage roles as a theater actor and also dreams of reaching the silver screen someday. His channel also features several videos in collaboration with famous YouTubers like Lilly Singh, King Bach and Grace Helbig and a couple of duet songs where he collaborates with Dodie Clark.
Sanders won the Streamy Awards for the Viner of the Year in 2016 and later in 2017, he was chosen as the best Youtube Comedian in Shorty Awards, shortly after going full-on to Youtube. As of July 2018, he has 2.7 million subscribers on his youtube channel and 2.1 million followers on Instagram.
Sanders's net worth is estimated to be $3 million. The internet celebrity had already amassed millions of fans and followers before Twitter decided to shut down the then-popular social network Vine. On switching to YouTube, he expanded his followers on the channel to millions over a short period.
There was a debate among his fans regarding his sexuality after he’d been allegedly tagged as gay. The internet had gone crazy over the debate, with some claiming him to be bisexual following his opinion where he said both genders are great, while some believed he was straight.
In a 2017 video by Thomas Sanders where he and some of his LGBT friends celebrated pride month, he opened up, clearing the doubts about his sexuality stating that he is gay and explaining why people would think he is bisexual, which he is not.
Here's the video.
Sanders is possibly single in the present day.
Sanders weighs 180 lbs and has an average build with body measurements 39-20-14 all in inches (chest-waist-biceps). He stands 5ft 10 inches tall.
