Juliana Grace Annie LeBlanc, or as we know her, Annie LeBlanc is an American YouTube celebrity. She is also a singer, actress, and former gymnast. In December 2018, she earned praise from Business Insider. The newspaper called her one of the most famous teens in the world.
She is an internet personality since four years old. In the beginning, her parents filmed her and uploaded the videos online. But she then took over. Here is a look at her career from her humble beginning to one of the most famous teenagers.
Career Ups and Downs
Born in 2015, she is just 15 years old. Her parents are Billy and Katie. At the time of her birth, her father served at Fort Gordon, Georgia. She has two siblings, a younger sister, and an older brother. Her brother Caleb died in 2015 from a heart condition.
She started gymnastics when she was just two years old. Her mother took her to class. And in the beginning, she did it for fun. Annie was really determined to make it as a gymnast. And she continued training until she reached Level 9 Gymnast. For comparison, that is the same rank as Simone Biles, an Olympic gold medalist when she was Annie’s age.
Her parents uploaded her gymnastics routines to YouTube for family members to watch. But fans quickly noticed her talent. Her parents say their intentions were never to get famous. But that happened. LeBlanc never turned pro, so she didn’t participate in any big event like the Olympics.
Starting as a celebrity thanks to gymnastics videos, Annie posted tutorials and meets. Her channel Acroanna started in 2008. At the time, she was three years old. She changed the channel’s name to Annie LeBlanc in 2017. Now, the channel contains gymnastics and music videos.
She has a daily vlog on YouTube. The young teenage star used her YouTube fame and popularity to open a TikTok account. This helped her reach more people thanks to her music. And in April 2018, she won the Shorty Award for Muser of the Year.
In 2017, there were speculations she dates fellow social media star, Hayden Summerall. Fans dubbed them “Hannie”. The two collaborated on a YouTube cover of Little do You Know. The video went viral instantly.
The faux relationship got them another gig. Brat media founder Rob Fishman learned of the phenomenon and cast them into an upcoming show. Of course, the faux relationship got written into the storyline.
Their cover of the Little Do You Know song debuted at Number 48 on the Emerging Artists Billboard Chart. She then had another cover, this time of the song Fly by Maddie & Tae. The cover peaked at Number 34 on the Billboard Country chart songs.
In early 2018, she released two more pop-country compilations. She even had an album iTunes, Lollipop. And then she went on a tour.
Annie is so charismatic, she can appear in everything. The young girl is living proof that you can act, dance, perform gymnastics, and sing at the same time. In August 2017, Brat released a new YouTube series. Titled Chicken Girls, the show featured LeBlanc and Summerall’s relationship. It put the focus on the daily lives of a group of friends and dancers at a faux high school.
The debut episode amassed more than 10 million YouTube views after release. The second season had constant viewership between 2 and 4 million per episode.
In December 2018, Business Insider called her one of the most famous teens in the world. The same month, she starred in the movie Holiday Spectacular. She appeared in a couple of more Brat movies and TV shows.
In November 2019, after nine years, she stopped making family vlogs. She explains that the family needed to focus on other projects.
In February 2020, Nickelodeon cast her in the buddy comedy series Side Hustle. But due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the channel offered her and Jayden Bartels a virtually-produced talk show. Titled Group Chat, the show premiered on May 23.
Awards and Nominations
Annie is not just one of the most famous teenage stars, she is also one of the most successful. So far, she has earned a couple of awards and nominations. She won three awards and has two more nominations.
She won her first award in 2018. The Shorty Awards gave her the Muser of the Year award. In 2019, she won a Teen Choice Award for Choice Music Web Star. And then in 2020, she won the Kids Choice Awards for Favorite Female Social Web Star.
So, we are now at the main question. How much is Annie LeBlanc’s fortune? All those successes, do they translate in money? Well, as of August 2020, Annie LeBlanc’s assets are estimated at over $3 million.
Famous for her gymnastics videos, she didn’t make money directly from gymnastics. But the views generated by her routines and tutorials quickly earned her a solid income. Annie started making a living at the age of just six. Her channel began with gymnastics, but she quickly added other content. She considered herself a full-time vlogger for seven years.
In November 2019, she stopped producing daily vlogs. But by that time, she earned enough money. Her videos in July 2019 generated an average of 1 million views. So, she made about $100,000 per month.
She also played a role in the success of Chicken Girls. The web series was the first big hit for the digital media company Brat. The series resulted in several subsequent movies. Some estimate she earned up to $5,000 per episode of the web series.
As true entrepreneurship, Annie makes a profit from different sources. She diversified her income through merchandising. You can buy her standard YouTube merch like T-shirts, socks, and sweatshirts. But she also sells jewelry with her own line Annie LeBling.
YouTubers who sell merchandise earn up to ten times more compared to regular YouTubers. So, we can expect Annie to earn even more millions in the upcoming years.
