About Ari Fitz

Rising to fame with her role on The Real World: Ex-plosion in 2014, Arielle Scott took her experience in the spotlight and started using it to promote her interests in fashion and androgyny. She headed to YouTube, now going by Ari Fitz, to post videos that touch on her life, gender, and sexuality to tutorials on “How To Grind (Like, Really.)” and “The Lapdance Challenge.” She posts every day on her channel, and once a week she takes to her TOMBOYISH channel to post fashion lookbooks and style guides geared towards “young individuals looking for a new, ambiguous, androgynous, or simply unconventional approach to fashion.” Her #MISFITZ fans love it, giving her 13M views across the two channels.
