Phobias? Revealing he is scared of “everything”, Jack adds: “I am going to find out what phobias I have whilst doing this show and what I am most scared of.”
Is Jack Maynard single? Yes!
He says: “There are going to be people going ‘Who is this kid?’ but on YouTube I am very much myself and I will bring that personality to the camp. I do feel lucky to be in this position and of course, I think everyone will hit the wall at some point but you do have to remember what an amazing show you are on.”
Biography: Brighton-born Jack Maynard started on the YouTube scene back in 2015 and since then has risen to social media stardom.
He might not quite be at PewDiePie levels but with 1.2 million subscribers and over 100 million total views on his channel, he’s still racked up quite the following. He posts new videos every week which mainly revolve around vlogs, challenges and comedy sketches.
He is also younger brother to singer Conor Maynard, who stormed onto the scene in 2012 with a UK number one album. However, now Jack is stepping out of his brother’s shadow, having gone from personal trainer to internet superstar.
The two Maynard brothers do, however, team up to work on various parody videos and songs in a band named GOAT. Their video Grenade (above) has had 9.2 million views on YouTube and their second, First Car (below) is also racking up the viewer numbers.
Jack is a rising YouTube star, but will his online viewers follow him to ITV? The star was the first to touch down in Australia before filming, and is now ready to share jungle duties with the likes of boxer Amir Khan and Boris Johnson’s Dad Stanley. Wonder if any of them are subscribers?
