Who is Colby Brock? Wiki Bio
Colby Brock was born in Stanley, Kansas USA, on 2 January 1997 – his zodiac sign is Capricorn and he holds American nationality. He is a YouTuber, social media star, and a video blogger best known through his old Vine account.
Early life and education
Colby was raised in Stanley by his parents who are both working in the field of law – he has an older brother named Gage Brock and a younger sister whose name is unknown. He is very close to his paternal grandparents named Robert A. and Pat Brock, and he spent a lot of his time with them while growing up.
He attended an elementary school in Stanley where he first became interested in acting, and then enrolled at Blue Valley High School in Stilwell, Kansas where he was physically very active playing football and soccer while also working on his way up on the internet. After matriculation, Colby was already well known thanks to his Vine account, and he therefore decided not to pursue a college degree.
He launched his career in 2014 with his friend Sam Golbach, when they created an account together on the Vine platform, and used it to post their funny videos.
The Vine platform was very popular before it was shut down on 17 January 2017, as it served for people to upload their short comic videos which were around six seconds long. Colby and Sam had nearly two million followers by the time the platform was removed from the internet. On 28 October 2014, the two launched their YouTube channel, which now counts nearly four million subscribers and over 420 million views combined of all their videos. They have also launched The Meta Life Project with the help of the non-profit suicide prevention organization called The Jed Foundation, aimed at helping those struggling with depression and anxiety.
On 6 November 2016, Colby launched his solo career by creating his eponymous channel which today counts over two million subscribers and close to 200 million views combined of all his videos. He is mostly focused on uploading videos of his everyday life, pranks and challenges, while some of his most popular videos are “Overnight BY MYSELF in Haunted House (scary)” (viewed over 1.2 million times), and “Secretly Staying OVERNIGHT in Best Friend’s Apartment” (viewed over 1.5 million times). Colby is also very active on Instagram, on which he has over 1.6 million followers.
Although not an actor, Colby was invited to appear in an episode of the “Fill in the [Prank]” TV series in 2017. He has also launched his own merchandise which he calls Fanjoy, which can be purchased on the internet. Madison, Colby’s biggest fan of the internet, wrote the “Adopted” fan-fiction book which follows the story of Casey, who was given to an orphanage at the age of 10, and who is adopted by Colby Brock at the age of 15.
Love life and relationships
Due to the pictures Colby uploads onto his Instagram account and the fact that he doesn’t talk about his girlfriend(s), the popular YouTuber is rumored to be gay.
Many people also believe that Colby is in a relationship with his best friend Sam Golbach, mostly because the two seem to be very close to one another in the videos they upload onto YouTube, and are living together.
In 2018 Colby uploaded a picture featuring him hugging a mysterious brunette onto his Instagram account, and the rumors began spreading the internet almost instantly about the two being in a relationship. While Colby has not commented on his relationship status, it is believed that the two are still together to this day, counting over a year and several months of dating.
Colby was in a relationship with a girl while attending 14th grade, and the two dated for a year before splitting.
Hobbies and other interests
