If you create on Roblox, you're no doubt familiar with YouTuber Flamingo, aka Albert Spencer Aretz. With more than 12 million subscribers to his channel, Albert, formerly known as Albert's Stuff, posts on the streaming platform almost daily with comedy videos and Roblox content. But where is he making all that content? Read on to learn more about the man behind the account, like where Flamingo lives and who he's currently dating.
Where does YouTube's Flamingo live?
Considering how prevalent flamingos are in the Sunshine State, it should come as no surprise that the Flamingo of YouTube is also from Florida. Bradenton, to be exact, though he was born in New Jersey. Most of Albert's tight-knit family lives in Florida, too, including his dad, Ron, and his four siblings. Albert has three sisters: Mary, Daria, and Alexandria. He also has a brother, Stephen, who works as a master welder.
Albert dated Twitch streamer FoxxKirsten on and off for years — they actually first met when they were both teenagers. Though they were together well into Albert's rise to YouTube stardom, it seems they called it quits officially in March 2021. The exact reason for their split currently isn't clear, though fans have commented on theory videos mourning their relationship. Since then, Albert has not been publicly linked to anyone.
While Albert was with FoxxKirsten, the pair had a dog Bedrock, who is named after the Minecraft game, if that tells you at all about Kirsten and Albert's level of devotion to gaming. Currently, Bedrock lives with Kirsten, if the pup's Instagram account is any indication, though Albert still has plenty of pets of his own.
Currently, Albert reportedly has three cats: Leo and Kimmy, who he adopted from his sister in 2018, and Simon, who lives in his family's home. Though he may not have a canine friend at the moment, it's clear he has some furry friends to still keep him company.
Who did Flamingo date before Kirsten?
Before dating Kirsten, the 22-year-old YouTuber was in a long-term relationship with fellow YouTuber Lana of LanasStuff. They were together since high school but decided mutually and amicably to part ways in late 2018 after three years together. Both YouTubers seem to have moved on and are happy in their new relationships.
How much money does Flamingo make from his channel?
It's difficult to nail down exactly what Albert's net worth is, but with over 12 million subscribers and more than 10 billion views, it's safe to say he makes a really comfortable living with his Roblox videos. Based on the estimate that a YouTuber makes at least $3 for every thousand views, the Flamingo YouTube channel could be raking in as much as $5.3 million a year — though it could be more, depending on sponsorships and brand deals across platforms.
Since Albert also makes merch for his fans (known as the Flim Flam), he clearly has multiple streams of revenue at the moment. He's still incredibly active on YouTube as well, posting a new video almost every day.
