Who is Ellie Zeiler?
Ellie is a social media influencer and TikTok star, who rose to prominence after her fellow internet celebrity, Charlie D’Amelio stated that they have a resemblance. However, Ellie Zeiler is more than Charlie’s lookalike – stay with us to learn all about this young internet sensation, and we’ll tell you the naked truth about her life, her rise to fame, and what she’s up to.
Early life, family, and education
Born Ellie Jane Zeiler under the zodiac sign of Pisces on 6 March 2004, in San Diego, California USA, she holds American nationality and comes from a family of Caucasian descent. Ellie was raised by her parents, Sarah and Rick, alongside her twin brothers Ben and William.
As a teenager, Ellie had an interest in sports, and played basketball competitively for six years, although she didn’t dream of a basketball career, as her goal was to become a filmmaker.
Ellie attended Del Norte High School, and matriculated in 2022. She plans to study film at New York University.
Rise to fame
Ellie was bored during the Covid-19 pandemic quarantine, so launched her TikTok account and began posting videos featuring her lip-syncing and dancing. Almost immediately, people began commenting how Ellie and Charlie D’Amelio look the same – a fun fact is that Ellie didn’t know who Charlie was, and how popular she was on TikTok, since Ellie’s mother set up parental controls. When Ellie figured out how to get around these setups, she became a literal internet sensation.
Although she rose to fame thanks to her resemblance to Charlie, let’s be real – she needed more than her look to build a successful social media presence. Her TikTok and Instagram posts featuring her dancing and her mini-vlogs brought her international fame.
