Who is Tayler Holder?
Tayler Holder was born in Alvarado, Texas USA, on 19 August 1997 – his zodiac sign is Leo, and he holds American nationality. He’s a social media star, a model and an aspiring actor, perhaps known best for being one of the former members of the influencer collective The Hype House.
Early life and education
Tayler was born to Monte and Wendy Holder, and has a brother named Trever, who is also a TikToker. Tayler spent his early childhood in rural Texas, before moving to Houston with his family at the age of ten.
He was a very active child, and participated in several extra-curricular activities. When he was only three years old, he started competing in motocross, and later played basketball for his high school’s team.
He also showed interest in music from an early age; he has been playing the guitar since the age of ten, and is a self-taught drummer, saxophonist and pianist as well.
Tayler attended the Carnegie Vanguard High School, from which he matriculated in 2016. He then moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. He also enrolled at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, graduating in 2020.
Rise to fame
Since moving to Los Angeles, Tayler has put more and more effort into his social media content. He quickly grew a large fanbase, particularly on TikTok, and became recognized for his laid back personality and good looks. It didn’t take long for him to get noticed by fellow influencers, and he soon started collaborating with the likes of Bryce Hall and Tony Lopez.
Tayler’s frequent collaborations with the members of The Hype House earned him honorary membership of the collective, before he formally joined them in May 2020. However, he left the house only four months later, citing his dissatisfaction with living conditions. ‘We were living in the guest house side, and the AC would go out every other day, and the WiFi wouldn’t reach there so I couldn’t even work’, Tayler explained in a YouTube video he made following his departure, while reiterating that he is still on good terms with everyone from The Hype House.
In October 2020, Tayler took to Twitter to announce that he had bought a house in Los Angeles, and that he would be starting his own content creator collective from there, which he named Triller Compound, which although it hasn’t reached the level of success of The Hype House, boasts several famous members, including Bryce Hall, Kelianne Stankus and Charly Jordan.
As of December 2021, Tayler is one of the most popular people on TikTok, with his account numbering more than 20 million subscribers, and over 1.1 billion likes. His popularity has translated into other social media platforms, and helped Tayler venture into music, acting and modeling.
Tayler made his foray into music in February 2021, with the release of his debut single “100 Rounds”. The young influencer has revealed that it has been his dream to make music since his teenage years, and that he is proud to finally have a chance to put out a song of his own. His debut may not have been what most people expected, featuring a slow and mellow beat, with intimate lyrics, but has become a hit nonetheless, while the music video featured the pop star Jason Derulo.
In May the same year, Tayler signed with ONErpm and released his follow-up single, entitled “I’ll Be Alright”. Much like “100 Rounds”, “I’ll Be Alright” was also co-written and co-produced by the R&B musician Glenn Travis, and featured a smooth beat with stripped-down guitar instrumentation.
Before he started releasing music, Tayler gained traction on TikTok and YouTube for posting guitar covers of songs, such as Tata McCrae’s “You Broke Me First”, which has amassed over five million likes on TikTok. In December 2020, he collaborated with Kelianne Stankus and Nate Wyatt on the song “Feels Like Christmas”, which was released exclusively on YouTube.
TV and movie appearances
Tayler made his acting debut in 2018, when he started playing the character Luke in the two seasons-long romantic drama series “Dirt”, which also starred Lilia Buckingham and Kalani Hilliker. In the same year, we saw Tayler guest star in an episode of the teenage drama “Total Eclipse”, as well as appearing in two episodes of the talk show “Brat Chat”.
Since then, he’s made appearances in several TV game and reality shows, such as “AwesomenessTV”, “VS Couple Ships” and “House of Creators”.
Tayler is very popular on Instagram, with his account numbering more than 6.5 million followers. On there, he often poses with his friends and family, but also isn’t afraid to show off his toned body in shirtless photos.
He launched his YouTube channel in January 2016, uploading his first video entitled “YOGA CHALLENGE” in April that year, since when Tayler’s channel has reached almost two million subscribers and over 140 million views. His most popular video is “Dating My Best Friend For 24 HOURS”, featuring Kelianne Stankus, viewed over 5.7 million times.
Tayler boasts over 1.6 million followers on Twitter, mainly using his presence on the platform to interact with his fans, and share his random funny thoughts with the public.
Love life and girlfriend
As a social media sensation, Tayler doesn’t hide a lot from his fans, so most of his recent relationships have been quite public.
In 2019, he was followed by rumors speculating that he might be in a relationship with the Team 10 member, Kaylyn Slevin – he confirmed that they were dating in spring 2019, but their relationship didn’t last long after that point, as they broke up in August the same year. Although their relationship was relatively short, the two separated on friendly terms, according to Tyler, and have been spotted hanging out after their break-up.
Tayler then started spending more time with the TikTok star and fellow Hype House member at the time, Dixie D’Amelio. This sparked rumors about them possibly dating, but neither of them confirmed it, and Dixie soon started dating her “Attaway General” co-star, Griffin Johnson.
Tayler has also often been connected with another former Hype House resident, Kelianne Stankus. The two have reportedly been sharing a very close bond for several years now, and have even kissed on camera, however, it appears that they haven’t been romantically involved.
Beginning in 2020, Tayler was followed by rumors about dating the model and social media star, Sommer Ray. They were frequently seen spending time together, and would often tag each other in their social media posts. Although the two initially didn’t publicly speak about their relationship status, in June the same year, Bryce Hall ‘broke the news’ during a TikTok livestream.
One month later, however, Tayler was spotted spending time with the TikTok star Charly Jordan, which indicated that he and Sommer had broken up. She later came on the “Mom’s Basement” podcast, revealing that Tayler was trying to get back with her while dating Charly, which he later denied, calling his past relationship with Sommer ‘extremely toxic’.
Tayler and Charly broke up in March 2021, and although a lot of their fans speculated that they have reconciled, it appears that their relationship is done for good.
Tayler currently appears to be single, hasn’t been married or engaged, and doesn’t have children.
