Who is Westen Champlin?
Westen Champlin was born in Winfield, Kansas USA on 23 July 1998 – his zodiac sign is Leo, and he holds American nationality. He’s a YouTuber and a social media star, who’s perhaps known best for his eponymous YouTube channel, which he launched on 17 March 2010, which is today subscribed to by more than 1.5 million people, and numbers over 120 million views of all his videos combined. Westen is mostly focused on videos related to cars, which often feature him buying cheap vehicles and restoring them to ‘their former glory’.
Westen uploaded his first video on 8 February 2019, entitled “$1,000 AUCTION BUY for Ford F350 7.3L Powerstroke 4X4”, which has since been viewed close to a million times.
Early life and education
Westen was raised on a farm in Winfield, by his parents about whom nothing’s known, as he respects their privacy, but it’s widely believed that his father’s a mailman, and that his mother works at a local grocery store. Westen hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, however, a brother has been mentioned in an article published by walls.com.
He grew up being interested in cars, and kept visiting a local car mechanic until he let Westen stand close to him and watch what he was doing. He spent little time at home during his four years of high school, as he enjoyed being outdoors with his friends, as well as spending time with the local mechanic. It was Westen’s best friend who joked about him launching a YouTube channel, and uploading videos related to cars onto it; what initially started out as a joke, turned into a career for Westen.
Upon matriculating in 2016, he didn’t enroll at college, but instead focused on his career on the internet.
Most popular YouTube videos
Westen’s mostly popular for his knowledge of cars, as well for his sense of humor; he’s driven all kinds of cars, from old-timers to some of the newest muscle cars, and many of these can be seen featured in his videos. We are going to mention three of Westen’s most popular YouTube videos, which have helped him amass many subscribers.
His #1 video “I Bought a Humvee and Tried Driving it 1452 Miles Home”, has been watched over 1.7 million times just since 1 September 2021, and features Westen while he’s explaining that he loves military vehicles, and is showing off the used Humvee which he’s purchased.
His second most popular video – “First Race with 1300HP Hellcat Jet with Twin Turbos” – has been watched over 1.5 million times since 21 August 2021, and features Westen racing a Dodge Hellcat – which as the title suggests, has 1,300 horse power and twin turbos – at Roadkill Nights.
His third most popular video “We Built a 1300HP Hellcat Jet with Twin Turbos” has also been watched over 1.5 million times, and was uploaded only 10 days before his second most watched video; it features Westen and his friends as they’re building the Dodge Hellcat which they later raced.
Westen’s an Instagram star too, as he has amassed close to 450,000 followers on the network, and has uploaded almost 200 pictures, the majority of which have been taken during his everyday life.

Love life and relationships
Westen hasn’t spoken of any girls (or boys) whom he’s perhaps been with, which is why there are rumors circulating the internet concerning both his love life and his sexual orientation.
Many people believe that he hasn’t spoken about his love life because he’s gay, and that he still hasn’t gathered the courage to come out of the closet. There are also those who claim that he’s keeping this a secret because of how it might affect his career on the internet, however, Westen hasn’t commented on these rumors, nor has any evidence been provided to support this.
Some believe that he’s today in a relationship with an American non-celebrity woman, but that she prefers to stay away from the media’s attention; they were apparently spotted spending time together by a Westen’s fan, but this rumor hasn’t been confirmed either.
As of September 2021, Westen seems to be single, hasn’t married, and doesn’t have children.
