Here’s 5 fast facts about Jake Sellers!
He really stans his fans...
The most special moment that i’ve had as an influencer so far is meeting my supporters. It makes me feel so special and loved when they come up to me asking for a photo and a hug. If I had the chance to meet all my supporters in one room, I totally would.
…but one took it a little bit too far.
The strangest moment i’ve had so far was having a supporter on the ground crying when she met me. She was speechless and I didn’t know what to do because I didn’t want to just leave her there.
A teacher woke him up once in a particularly suss way.
The most embarrassing moment I’ve had IRL was having my teacher show my videos during class. Not going to lie, I was asleep and she decided to wake me up by playing some of my videos, but it was still embarrassing.
He ain’t tall.
Something people would be surprised to know about me is that i’m short. Since people can’t really tell the height of somebody through a video, once they find out they are pretty shocked to know.
Vegetarianism is not likely in his future.
One food that I REFUSE to eat would be anything with vegetables. I’ve grown up not eating vegetables and now when I see them they just make me uncomfortable.

Here’s 5 fast facts about Sean-Ryan Petersen!
He says voice acting is more challenging than it appears.
If I had to choose one challenging part of voice over to make people aware of, it would be having tons of available voices. Being a voice-over actor requires you to fill many different roles from a dragon to a gnome and having voices for those creatures and anything in between. This will separate you from everyone else. Not only do you need to have those voices but you also need to be able to maintain them with some degree of skill. No voice is perfect and that is something I work at every day.
He wants Ryan Reynolds to play him in a movie.
Ryan Reynolds. Do I look like Ryan Reynolds, well not exactly, but I do love him and I vibe with his sense of humor. Of course, I would only really need his amazing voice as I would like to have the movie animated instead of live-action. Also the narrator would be Morgan Freeman hands down with plenty of 4th wall breaks with myself playing the occasional side character. 😀
Disney and Japanese animation top his list.
Animation is what inspired me to be a voice actor so I have a long list of movies and shows. Three of my favorites were Pokemon, Digimon, and the original Yu-Gi-Oh tv show. As for films I actually enjoyed some lesser but, in my book, amazing Disney animated films such as “Atlantis” and “Treasure Planet.” For the past couple of years though I have been watching a lot of anime/Japanese animation which is really good. “Kimetsu no Yaiba” or “Demon Slayer” is my favorite summer anime.
He’s got a cool pro-tip for aspiring actors you might not have thought of.
I am an avid DnD player or Dungeons and Dragons. My friends have recently gotten me into DnD and since then I am actively participating in several campaigns playing vastly different characters. Voice Actor Pro Tip: playing DnD and creating characters is a great way to develop fantasy creatures, monsters, and many different races (dwarves, elves, goblins) voices. ; )
He loves crunchy fried potatoes.
Not exactly the proudest to admit that but I love french fries. Whether it be waffle fries from Chick-Fil-A or fresh McDonald fries I can eat them at anytime. If I had to choose a food that would be considered an actual meal, then I love finding and eating ramen. Ramen can be prepared and customized so many different ways that I find myself enjoying new flavors every time I walk into a new ramen bar.
Sage Mayer has appeared on Netflix, DreamWorks TV, Discovery Family, Universal Kids, Youtube, and Amazon. You’ve probably seen him recently in DSW stores, online and in mailers as the spokesperson for BeStrong, youth empowerment organization and in all “Back to School” advertisements. He has been a huge supporter of BeStrong for more than three years.
His new web series Chi-nanigans premiered August 3rd on YouTube. He plays half of the tween twins Foster and Marie Blake. They are completely opposite from each other so there is a lot of push and pull between them, It’s a comedy about kids and growing up. The series was filmed in Chicago.
Here’s 5 fast facts about Sage Mayer!
He was nominated for a Young Artist Award this year.
The most special moment was being nominated for an award by the Young Artists Academy this year. It was so much fun attending the show and meeting some kids that I have seen on some of my favorite shows and I made so many new friends.
He’s never been star struck — but he will be if he meets one particular person.
I have to say no, but I don’t know what I’d do if I met Tom Holland and I plan to one day because I am still working for that Miles Morales live-action role.
He got caught passing a love note by his teacher.
I got in trouble in school because I was trying to get this girl to notice me in class and there were two other boys trying to do the same thing. Then I decided to pass her a note trying to get a jump on the competition. My teacher snagged the noted and was not happy. So embarrassing.
He’s got an unusual way to unwind.
I love baking shows. They are so relaxing.
There is one very normal food which everybody likes — except him. You do you, Sage.
BANANAS! I do not even like the smell of them and they are all over the house because they’re my dad’s favorite.
Jaafar Jackson is the nephew of pop-music legend Michael Jackson and the son of Jermaine Jackson. Funnily enough, although music has always been in Jaafar’s genes, he originally preferred to play one particular sport rather than follow in his family’s footsteps (read below to find out what it is).
All that changed when his father took him into the studio at age 13, at which point he caught the music bug in a big way.
With a new album called Famous coming out soon, Jaafar recently gave the world a taste of his talents with his debut “Got Me Singing,” which already has over 3 million views (you can watch it and the bottom of this post). Set in a real Brazilian Favela, the Jackson swag is immediately apparent –this kid has got it in his blood and it shows!
Here’s 5 fast facts about Jaafar Jackson.
He’s got fond memories of his uncle Michael.
There’s a few memories I cherish , one of them is when I was at Neverland and we played hide and go seek. I’ll never forget those memories.
He’s a family man.
The best thing I’d say is having the amount of family members I have. I have so many cousins and siblings that growing up I never was bored or had to try and make friends.
His dad has given him some great advice — and he actually listens!
My dad has always said to be the best you can be in whatever you put your mind to, to practice and strive for greatness and to always stay true to who you are. His advice means a lot to me.
When younger, he was tryna be Tiger Woods instead of a “Jackson!”
Growing up I was only into playing golf, I had no interest in wanting to become an artist or even thought I could ever be one.
If he was stuck on a deserted island for 5 years, he would most want to bring _____________?
I would have to bring either a notepad or a speaker so I can play music.

Juggling school and singing has been hard for her.
I am in grade 11, so pushing through these last two years has been difficult while constantly travelling for singing. But, with the support of my parents, I have been able to do it.
Her Netflix game is on point.
I have so many shows that I love! The new season of Brooklyn Nine Nine
just came out on Netflix and I am BINGING. I also love New Girl, The Mindy Project, as well as the iconic and staple show
The one thing which puts her in her happy place is _________.
Jamming out with my friends.
She stans her singing coach.
Sarah McClurg has been my singing coach, friend and mentor for over 7 years now. She’s so awesome and has truly shaped me into the person I am today.
If she could make herself into a brand-new, never-before-heard-of superhero, her power would be ___________.
Invisible flyer, and my name would be ‘Super Sloth.’

His sports coverage hasled him to be featured on ESPN, NBC Sports, and SB Nation.
He also acts a bit, having worked on Netflix’s Stranger Things, FX’s Atlanta, and a short indy film called The Adventures of Penny Patterson.
Here’s 5 fast facts about Tyler!
He once took viewers behinds the scenes of a reporter’s life.
My favorite piece of content I’ve published is a video called “Day in the Life | NBA G-League.” I had a videographer follow me around for the day and we were able to show what it’s like when I’m credentialed at a sporting game/event. I was happy with how much we were able to show from the behind the scenes of my interview with Orlando Magic’s Amile Jefferson to my interactions with media personnel throughout the day.
David Dobrik is his inspiration.
David Dobrik is someone I admire in the digital content space. I’m really impressed with his editing and how fast-pace all his videos are. He is able to fit so much entertaining content in such a small-time window (4:20). You are always wanting more and waiting until he posts again, which is why his fanbase is as strong as it is. He’s on the top of my list to interview one day so hopefully we can make that happen soon!
He totally whiffed it in front of over 100 people and VIPs.
I’m not sure if embarrassing is the right word. However, my first time I ever did a studio presentation at my college, I was awful (Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting at Full Sail University). I was doing highlights for a Celtics-Lakers game and was terrible since I didn’t know what I was doing (trust me I’m much better now!). The crazy part was that it was in front of famed-sportscaster Dan Patrick, my instructors, classmates, a bunch of business executives, and livestreamed online to 100+ people. Definitely a memorable first introduction to performing in a studio.
He enjoys plucking strings.
I play the ukulele! When I moved to Florida a couple years ago, I decided I wanted to pick up a new instrument. The ukulele is the best because of how easily portable it is. I love bringing it wherever I travel.
His least favorite food almost caused us to not run this interview out of shock. HOW COULD YOU NOT LIKE THIS????
I absolutely dislike Sour Cream and Onion Chips! You can ask anyone I went to high school with haha. I’ve always thought they tasted gross and not sure why so many people like them.
Clarissa Camacho is a teen actress, model, and singer.
When she’s not working, she’s raising awareness on multiple social issues. She’s very passionate about making the world a better place, and helping the people around her.
Here’s 5 fast facts about Clarissa!
She really digs showbiz.
Working in the industry in general has been a gift. I absolutely love what I do. Working with actors like myself, and creating content is such a joy. I also absolutely adore making characters, because I get to think outside of the box, and force myself to get as creative as possible. I can’t help but also acknowledge the love and support I receive from my family. They always visit on set, and make personal, amazing memories with me there. I can’t imagine myself ever going into another profession
Her biggest inspiration is America Ferrera.
America Ferrera. I love her as an individual, and equally as an actress. America is fearless and uses her platform for the better good. Since I was a child, I’ve known I wanted to be a performer. I never saw anyone on TV with my dark pigmentation and untamable Latina hair, so I always thought maybe I didn’t belong on tv, or in movies.
Then one day, I passed by her on TV; she was speaking Spanish in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. My 5-year-old self idolized her, I finally had a little more faith in my dreams. The person, the ethnicity, and the community America Fererra represents, is amazing.
She put her bodily fluids on Anne Hathaway once.
The first time I met Anne Hathaway was a HUGE embarrassment, I cried like…. a….lot. Can you blame me? Anne Hathaway is like a goddess. I never get starstruck when I work with celebrities, but I kept hearing I Dreamed a Dream in my head when she talked haha.
Shortly after bawling in her presence, she offered to hug me. I was like gosh darn, I’m getting snot on my idol, on her gorgeous designer dress! However, she assured me that she had the same reaction with Meryl Streep, so she was honored. Anne, if you ever read this…I love you.
She has activism in her blood.
I’m actually a huge activist. My grandfather was a Bracero in the 1940’s “[A Bracero is] a Mexican laborer allowed into the US for a limited time as a seasonal agricultural worker.” – Oxford. Fatherless, my grandfather wanted to provide a better life for his children, “the American Dream” if you will. I’ve always been extremely proud of my roots… I am here, because of my grandfathers hard work, and dedication to a better future. He picked in cotton/fruit/ fields for a long portion of his adolescence. The hot, scorching sun, lack of water, and proper care came with the downfall of constant battles with skin cancer, and overall health. The poor conditions he lived in are recorded at the Smithsonian Museum, where he was also featured in their magazine (about life in the Bracero camps). If you talk to my grandfather about life working the fields, he’ll shed a single tear, but insist he wouldn’t change his life for the world.
Therefore, I have made it a point to fight for others like my grandfather. To speak out for the workers, and immigrants who have no voice. Immigrants believe abuse and racism is the cost of their migration. The racism my grandparents endured, should never be felt by any other human being.
She’s a little scary when talking about Hot Cheetos.
I’m absolutely addicted to Hot Cheetos. It’s not exactly a food, but to my other Cheeto-obsessed friends, y’all know Cheetos can become a meal real quick. My older sister, Victoria introduced me to Hot Cheetos straight out of the womb. When we were kids, we used to eat whole bags daily. Our parents constantly tried to get rid of them, but we always found a way….especially since there was a gas station down the street. After the countless days of stomachaches, and countless gallons of milk I’ve consumed, I’ve definitely lowered my intake of Hot Cheetos. However, I will never stop eating them haha.

In addition to being a video creator and model, she is also a “positivity influencer” who took a stand against cyberbullying and pioneered the “Kindness Matters” movement after receiving massive amounts of hateful comments on one of her videos.
Here’s 5 fast facts about Trinity!
There is one particular video she is most proud of.
My favorite piece of content is the following vid because it’s the one that spearheaded the kindness matters movement.
Her most embarrassing moment turned into a positive — lots of attention thanks to PewDiePie!
Oh! The one pewdiepie annihilated. The meme is actually hilarious. I shot the vid after pulling an all nighter. I got in my car right after finishing my last exam and was slap happy! Here is the original and I’m sure you could find the meme.

Here’s 5 fast facts about Travis!
His show was nominated for a Teen Choice Award.
Honestly being a part of two projects that I’ve been passionate about for the past two years and seeing them both get the recognition they deserve, as well as to be so well received by the fans to be nominated for #TeenChoiceAwards is pretty rewarding in itself.
There is one kindergarten lesson which still holds true for him today.
The golden rule: treat others the way you wish to be treated. I’m a huge believer in energy and I believe that the energy we put out in the world has a unique way of finding its way back to us in a full circle kind of way. So simply putting kindness and positivity in the world is the most efficient way to receive it back and I’d try to exemplify that in my actions and in everything that I do.
He’s the guy you always complain about regarding texting.
For as often as I am on my phone, I suck at texting a response to people. My friends, my costars, and even my family is always getting onto me about how I need to be better at replying to people’s messages.
Be flexible and do what you say if you want to be his pal.
Hypocrisy and people who are unwilling to change are both kinda tied up there in my top 2 pet peeves but they also go hand in hand with each other.
