July 24, 2006
Barely 15, YouTuber Alexis Ryan has become quite the sensation. She has British-French-Irish ancestry but was born in the United States to popular YouTubers Vincent and Samantha Ryan, better known as FGTeeV Duddy and FGTeeV Mum. She has three younger brothers: Mike, Shawn, and Chase. Popular YouTuber Minecraft Ethan (Ethan McKinnon) is her cousin. She is also well known as Skylander Girl, a nickname she has since outgrown. Ryan is now more popular as just Alexis Ryan or the abbreviated name, Lexi.
Her first brush with fame came when she was barely a year old. In 2006, her parents launched their YouTube Channel FUNnel Vision, and posted their first video of Ryan as an infant in 2007, which became very popular. It was, however, only in 2010 that she was formally introduced on the channel, in a video that also featured her father, her two aunts, and her younger brother. Over the years, as Ryan grew older, her family added new family gaming channels to YouTube — The Skylander Boy and Girl, FGTeeV, and DohMuchFun — and she featured in all of them. It was in 2011 that she came to the public’s attention with the viral video ‘If the Kids Were in Charge,’ in which she and her brother exchanged roles with their parents. She went on to perform with her family on other entertaining videos covering food, travel, games, and reviews. She has also appeared on other YouTube channels and series, including Twiplet World and Dingle Hopperz.
While her YouTube channels with her family have garnered her much popularity, she has also branched out to become a TikTok star in her own right. She can be found lip-syncing to songs on TikTok and has endorsed several brands. Fans are also in awe of her fashion sense and she has launched a clothing label called Lexoxo. As more time progresses, fans will be eagerly waiting for new moves from this popular teen social media star.
Called FUNnel Vision, the channel is in the works barely a few months after Ryan is born.
At a little over one year of age, she features in the very first video on her parents’ YouTube channel.
In a video titled ‘Raise Your Glass Music Video,’ Ryan is formally introduced on the family channel alongside other family members.
After her appearance with her family in a comedy video — ‘If the Kids Were in Charge’ — she becomes immensely popular.
Featuring a line of casual clothing, Ryan launches the apparel label Lexoxo.
