It is no longer so difficult to guess the age bracket that most social media personalities belong to. What is a little different about Sam Pottorff though is that he started his social media strides long before most of his contemporaries.
Sam used to be part of an online vlogging group known as Our2ndLife in 2012. Other members of the group included Ricky Dillon, Trevor Moran, Kian Lawley, Connor Franta and JC Caylen. The group disbanded in December 2014.
Sam has successfully built a relatively huge following on social media, particularly Instagram and YouTube. He does some of the stuff he loves while being frank and objective when giving his opinions about anything. He has garnered some hatred online too, and which internet celebrity hasn’t? He doesn’t let it get to him.
Sam was born in 1995 in California. He is half Arabic, part Turkish and part Palestinian. Not much is known about his family. However, he has three siblings: a brother and two sisters. Their names are Levi, Mia, and Cloe.
Sam and his brother, Levi, both took advantage of the independent study School Opportunities For Learning in Dana Point, California. His social media following, when you consider Instagram, YouTube and Twitter run well into millions.
Sam Pottorff’s Wife, Height
Sam was once rumored to be gay. A lot of it had to do with the fact that he publicly talked about his love for all things makeup. A subject that conventionally resonated with females – and perhaps metal rock band artists. But Sam Pottorff is neither of these things.
However, he took his first move to dispel the misunderstanding of his sexual orientation when he released a video on YouTube. In the video, he categorically stated that he is not gay nor does he have homosexual tendencies.
The major nail in the coffin of the homosexual rumors came, however, when he got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Rosa Van Iterson. This happened on September 7, 2016. They posted a video announcing the engagement on one of their YouTube channels and it quickly went viral. Many of their followers were shocked but happy for them as they sent in their congratulations.
In March 2017, Sam and Rosa officially tied the knot. It was a small ceremony involving only family and a few friends. They subsequently moved in with Rosa’s mom. Rosa has her own YouTube channel as well named Sam and Rose. Her total social media following also runs into the hundreds of thousands.
Sam does have a dating profile that predates Rosa Van, however. Reports suggest that he once dated Jessica Carbo, who is also a social media figure, Acacia Brinley, and Mackenzie Lopez.
Sam Pottorff stands at a respectable 5 feet 8 inches (1.77m) in height.
Sam Pottorff Tattoo and Quick Facts
One look at Sam and it is immediately obvious that he loves tattoos. His inked out left arm is proof of that. He was even willing to post a video on his YouTube channel dedicated to explaining what each of his tattoos means to him.
Sam’s tattoos aren’t the only thing that shows his adventurous streak. He memorably dyed his hair a vivid violet color for his wedding ceremony. His hair color has covered the entire spectrum of colors on the rainbow. He has experimented with blue, grey, pink, blonde too. However, his natural hair color is brown.
Sam was bullied as a kid in high school. Apparently, this problem couldn’t be solved because he later dropped out of high school and took up the option of homeschooling. It was at this time that he focused on his career.
Sam and Rosa’s story didn’t start the way people have unconsciously come to expect of celebrities of any status level. Theirs was relatively unconventional. They met on the matchmaking site Tinder. As the story goes, Rosa was at a party where she had just installed the app and set up her profile before she came in contact with him.
Sam was 21 years old when he got married. His wife and heartthrob, Rosa Van is three years older than him and they seem more in love than most other couples. This is proof that the couple does not really care about age on the issue of love.
The couple does not boast a house of their own yet like other celebrity couples. They moved out of Rosa’s mom’s and currently live in a rented apartment in Los Angeles.
Sam’s net worth is in dispute. Different sources quote varying estimations, however, they all keep within the bracket of $500,000 to $1 million.
