Is Steven Lim Engaged To His Girlfriend or Is He Gay?

Steven Lim can be best described as an individual who deploys his array of talents for the entertainment of a wider audience. He is a YouTube personality, TV producer, presenter, and actor. He is perhaps most popular for his comedy skits and vlogs, which he shares with his over 230,000 YouTube subscribers. Amazingly, Lim’s fame goes beyond YouTube as he has also garnered massive followership on other social media platforms.

The multi-talented star is also known for his work with the internet media company BuzzFeed, Inc. He joined the company in 2015 and is best known for creating and co-starring in the hit show, Worth It. Details about his personal life, particularly his relationships are something that is frequently searched for by his fans. We would bring you information on that, but before then, let’s meet the YouTube personality below.

Who is Steven Lim?

Steven Lim was born on November 12, 1990. Although he was born in Ohio, the United States, his parents are originally from Malaysia. According to Lim, his mother is from the city of Malacca, while his father is from a town called Port Dickson (PD). He equally has Chinese roots and American nationality.

Lim completed his college education at Ohio State University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering in 2012.  After graduation, he remained in Ohio, where he worked as an engineer for the multinational company, Procter & Gamble. He served in that role for about one year, but eventually, he dabbled into showbiz after relocating to Los Angeles in 2013.

Why Is He Famous?

Steven Lim’s journey to fame began after his arrival in Los Angeles, where he originally began his showbiz career as a YouTuber. Through his career, he caught the attention of major media companies after several of his videos went viral on the internet. As a result, Lim was recruited by the digital media company BuzzFeed, Inc. There, he started working as a junior video producer in April 2015. Interestingly, he was promoted to the position of executive producer in May 2017.

Since he joined BuzzFeed, he has come to be known for his work on the web series, Worth It. The show has been a hit since it premiered in 2016, and Lim doubles as the producer and co-host. The show features Lim and his co-presenter Andrew Ilnyckyj as they visit different food outlets around to world, to try different foods at drastically varying price points.

The YouTube star and actor also contributed to the launching of a spin-off series, Worth It: Lifestyle in January 2017. Unlike the original show, which is centered only on different kinds of food, this spin-off version features the co-hosts trying out different experiences and lifestyle items. Steven Lim’s eponymous YouTube channel was created back in 2008, but it remained relatively dormant until January 2013, when he decided to make a full-time career out of it. It is quite obvious that this multi-talented star has his hands full and that his career is going pretty well. One can also safely assume that Lim has earned a great amount of income through these numerous lucrative ventures.

Is He Gay?

When it comes to his personal life, Steven Lim has not made any recent mentions regarding his current relationship status. Some have started speculating that his silence has something to do with his sexuality. But in the real sense, there have been no significant indications to affirm the above speculations. It could be that Lim and his partner have chosen to keep their relationship away from the public eye.

Moreover, people can easily confuse him with the Growing Up star, Steven David Lim, who came out as gay sometime in 2019. Notably, David Lim is the first Singaporean actor to come out as gay. As for our subject of discussion, Stephen Lim, he has been in a relationship with a lady named Ying Lin and this gives us reason to believe that he is not gay. While we’re on that, did you know that the pair has been in a long-distance relationship?

If you’re quite regular on social media, you must have come across Steven Lim’s girlfriend several times. Back in 2016, Lim introduced his girlfriend, Ying Lin, who is a Korean native to his audience. According to him, they met through a mutual friend in his home state of Ohio. He also shared an article on BuzzFeed, where he described the highs and lows of their long-distance relationship.

However, it’s not clear if Steven Lim and Ying have taken their romance to the next level by getting engaged. The YouTube star has not made such pronouncements, and there is no other evidence to support this. There were rumors in 2018 that the duo may have parted ways, but these were also not confirmed. The only romantic involvement which he has made public is with Ying, and fans are indeed positive about them taking their relationship to another level.
