She’s also had several controversies surrounding her career, which is common for many YouTube personalities. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Starting a Career on YouTube – Early Life
Tana was born into a problematic household, with constant fighting happening around her. Her childhood was rough, and while she was in 2nd grade, she had an encounter with a stalker who she subsequently had sent to jail. Growing up in Las Vegas, she was exposed to a lot of partying, drugs and alcohol. In 2015, she decided to create her own YouTube channel which started to grow quickly in popularity. She created unique story-time videos, which became popular due to the content of the stories as well as her personality. Hers became one of the fastest growing YouTube channels, managing to accumulate over two million subscribers in just her first year.
As her channel grew, she started to reach out to other YouTube personalities, and has collaborated with other popular names, including Jonah Green, Channon Rose, Ricky Dillon and Polina Beregova. She then decided to expand her range by making vlogs, varying entertainment content, and she has also released music on her channel. Her videos gained a lot of traffic due to her making content that focuses on some taboo stories, too. She also reduced the number of story-time videos, and only updates fans with the stories shortly after she experiences them.
Mongeau has had several controversies during her career – in 2016 she released a video aimed at another YouTuber, iDubbbzTV for his frequent use of the word “nigger” in his videos. She continues addressing the issue in other videos and live streams. iDubbbz then decided to go to her live show in San Francisco and purchased a VIP ticket for a meet and greet. He then posed with her and said the words “Say nigger!” which caused an outrage from both Mongeau and her fans.

In 2017, iDubbbzTV then furthered the feud by releasing a “Content Cop” series video on Tana. The series is made to show how certain YouTube personalities are hypocrites when it comes to their own claims and content. In the video, he attempted to portray Tana as a hypocrite by releasing past clips of her saying the word, too – set-up by himself. He then defended himself by saying that he only uses the words in comedy context, and doesn’t actually put any real intent to it. He then went on to discuss how society decides specific derogatory terms, and ranks them according to their supposed offensiveness.
Mongeau is known to have been in a relationship with another social media personality, Sommer Hollingsworth who is best known for his modelling work and Instagram photos. They were in a relationship from 2015 but eventually broke up some time in 2017. Later in 2017, actress Bella Thorne posted pictures of her and Mongeau together kissing at a festival. Prior to the photos, Thorne already confessed that she was a bisexual.
The relationship continued as the two began collaborating for YouTube work, with Tana even releasing a music video which showcased her and Bella in a raunchy scene. The two have continued to post photos of each other on social media, and Tana later posted that she started dating Bella. According to her, meeting Thorne was a way that she started questioning her own sexuality.
