About Jessi Smiles

“Hey guys!” is the very personable intro Jessi Smiles begins all her videos with, before launching into often embarrassing, sometimes ridiculous, and always hilarious stories about her life bouncing between Miami and LA. Whether it’s candid stories about terrible online dating experiences or “My Thoughts” videos, with occasional drinking mixed in so her 600K+ subscribers can hear how she really feels, Jessi is always willing to divulge the dirt to keep her fans entertained. After her meteoric rise to fame on Vine, she took to YouTube this year to describe “WHY I GAVE UP 3.6 MILLION FOLLOWERS AND QUIT VINE.” We’re just happy that she continues to let us laugh along with her inner thoughts and experiences.
