As he told Rolling Stone, Meghan Trainor was his first celebrity follower. They quickly went from strangers to followers to making joint videos together. And Meghan isn't the first A-lister to buddy up with Chris. High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale, The Sex Lives of College Girls star Reneé Rapp, singer Sabrina Carpenter, and actor Joshua Bassett have also created videos with him.

In addition to hanging out with some pretty cool people, Chris also had the opportunity to co-host the Oscars' Red Carpet Experience in partnership with the Academy for their 94th awards ceremony.

Chris was raised in the Washington metropolitan area and currently resides in Los Angeles. Prior to reaching TikTok stardom, Chris worked at Equinox as a certified group fitness trainer. Today, he still enjoys going to the gym but has prioritized his content-creating career.
