They’ve also started their own channels on the social media platform, attracting millions of subscribers.

Some of her viewers get annoyed with the detail she provides while telling the story of her medical examinations and manipulations, but some people like her honesty and ask for more videos. Among Bonnie’s most popular videos there is one she has posted in terms of Jimmy Kimmel’s challenge “Hey Jimmy Kimmel I Told My Kid I Ate All Their Halloween Candy”. Bonnie’s video about telling her sons, Cody and Lincoln, that she ate all their Halloween candies went viral, as many other videos posted for that challenge, and she soon attracted more than a million subscribers to her channel. As of 2020, her most popular video is entitled “MERMAID CAVE”. which has over 48 million views.
In 2018 Bonnie created “Griffiths Family Recipes” cookbook, gathering 130 recipes they use on a daily basis.
The book was compiled with the help of all other members of the family, including Bonnie’s parents, Chad and Jennifer, who shared their recipe of bottled tomatoes (which in fact they grew in their backyard garden). The book was launched in a limited edition with a hardcover, and later with a soft cover. Bonnie encouraged her subscribers to share their videos on YouTube showing them trying the recipes from the book. She also filmed the video “Making of the Griffiths Family Cookbook”, which is posted on her parents’ channel.
Apparel line “Bollie Brand”
As Bonnie struggled a lot with gaining and then losing weight many times, she felt very uncomfortable when she couldn’t find the clothes that would make her look and feel well. In 2019 Bonnie launched her own clothes line “Bollie Brand”, which also includes Plus Sizes (up to XXXL).
Bonnie was granted a live TV segment on FOX 13 program “The Place”, in which she shared the details of her upcoming collection. Her sister Ellie Mecham is the co-creator of the line.
Personal life, husband Joel Hoellein
Bonnie met Joel Hoellein in high school, and they dated for several years before they eventually married. The couple has four children Olivia, Lincoln, Cody and Boston, all of whom feature frequently in her YouTube videos. Joel helps his wife a lot with managing her social media accounts, and providing massive support when Bonnie needs to undergo surgery. Joel was born on 31 January 1986, in Utah.
Hobbies, favorite things and interesting facts
Just as all other members of her big family, Bonnie is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, so she is a Mormon.
Bonnie has struggled with her rosacea since her teenage years; she uses various make-up tips to cover the redness of her face, but admits that being nervous makes it worse, so she tries to worry less and not to overthink the situations she can’t change or influence. Bonnie had her tonsils out in 2017. When Bonnie’s daughter, Olivia, was a little baby she had to get tubes put in her eyes for her tear ducts as they were not functioning correctly which cost a lot, and as Joel was still in college they were broken.
Their eldest son Cody was only one year old, but they took him with them to visit Olivia in hospital – Olivia got her tubes out, and woke up in hysteria, but soon calmed down and could be taken home.
