Charles Trippy was born on September 2, 1984 in a town named Sarasota in the District of Florida in United States.
He was raised by his father Charles and his mother Marlene but he also has one younger sister Melissa with whom he has spent his childhood and with whom he is still very close.
His parents and grandparents are of German, Italian and American ancestry.
Since he was just a little boy he adored all sports, especially baseball, and he often practiced it at home forcing his dad to join him.
This continued in school where he was involved in a lot of activities and sports events which led to gaining a great athletic body.
He was also very good as a musician because his father played an instrument in the Gregg Allman Band. His father Charles played percussion and he did it very well.
Charles and his family moved a lot, due to his father’s obligations with the band and Charles often came to his dad’s shows and decided to learn how to play the guitar. He went to a music school and learned it professionally.
He was a student at Lakewood Ranch High School after which he decided to continue his schooling at the University of South Florida where he graduated in an interesting subject – Communications.
He knew how powerful social media platforms are, so he started posting on his blog in 2006 and he continued to do it every day, documenting his everyday living and events in his life.
He is a host of “Internet Killed Television” series which runs online and has high ratings.
For the first 5 years of the show his co-host was Alli Speed who was his wife at that moment and today he holds the same show with his current wife, interestingly also called Alli.
In 2011 he and his good friends decided to start a band called “We the Kings” and they play music of pop rock and alternative genre.
Charles Trippy was signed into the Book of Guinness World Records because of the fact that his daily vloggs were made without missing even a day since he started uploading them on YouTube.
Another very long video that he uploaded on YouTube was an hour and a half long video of him and his wife who talked about vlogging and their careers in vlogging and it was called “Vlogumentary”.
A shocking news was discovered to Charles in 2012 and that was that he has a brain tumor. This caused him a lot of sleepless nights and mild depression.
Although the tumor was benign, he got really scared and he immediately went under surgery which was very successful.
One year later the tumor has returned and Charles took chemotherapy trying to keep a positive attitude.
Charles is a very optimistic and positive person and it seems that his constant vlogging and interracting with his fans helps him keep stability and balance no matter his sickness.
He got married to Allison Speed in 2011 but three years later they have split up and divorced. He anmounced their split on his channel in a video named “We need to talk”.
Charles wasn’t solo for a very long time: he soon found a new girlfriend named Allie Wesenberg who became famous because of him.
