About Alexa Rivera

Only 18 years of age, and Alexa "Lexi" Rivera launched to online fame via Vine with her brother Brent. Together, the siblings have migrated to YouTube to massive success, with Lexi finding herself unique success with a romantic twist. Bringing pro skateboarder Ben Azelart into the family vlogging fold, Lexi infuses her challenges, pranks and sibling adventures with will-they-won’t-they romantic undercurrents with "boyfriend" Ben. From fake marriage, fake honeymoon, and pregnancy teasers to ongoing adventures with her "crush," Lexi enjoys playing with her 2M+ subscribers audience as much as they enjoy tuning in for the unfolding chapters, evidenced by her 268M video views.
