Jack Dail Wiki Bio
Jack Brendyn Dail was born in Sterling, Illinois USA, on 11 November 1998 – his zodiac sign is Scorpio, and he holds American nationality. He’s a former social media star, who first gained popularity through the now defunct video sharing platform Vine.
Early life, family and education
Jack grew in a small town in Wisconsin, alongside his older brother Mason and younger sister Kelsey. His mother is said to be a high school teacher, but not a lot more is known about the influencer’s parents, as he respects their privacy and doesn’t share details about his early life on social media.
In 2017, Jack matriculated from Edgerton High School with excellent grades. During his time in high school, Jack was quite popular among his peers, who knew him from Vine and Instagram, and was a member of his school’s football team.
Jack is currently working on attaining a Master’s degree in economics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Jack launched his Vine account in November 2013, and soon started posting short comedy videos, in which he makes fun of common social media tropes. He quickly gained a large following on there, and by early 2015, his account had reached more than a million followers.
He also often collaborated with other content creators, such as Grayson and Ethan Dolan, and Aaron Doh.
However, this newfound popularity apparently had a negative effect on Jack, who announced that he would be taking a break from social media in September 2015, saying that he needed time-off to focus on school and his hobbies. ‘In the past couple of weeks, a lot of signs have come up in my life which have led me back to school – and doing things I have always loved doing growing up. Unfortunately, none of those things included social media!’ Jack revealed in a YouTube video he posted to his channel before his hiatus.
After a while, Jack returned to posting new content onto his social media profiles, albeit somewhat less frequently. By the time Vine officially closed down in January 2017, Jack’s account numbered more than 1.8 million followers, but he’s since been active on social media sites such as Instagram, Twitter, as well as on YouTube. At the height of his popularity, Jack’s Instagram account was followed by more than 800,000 people, while his Twitter numbered over 600,000 followers and around 4,000 tweets. On YouTube, his channel counted almost 400,000 subscribers, and some of his most popular videos included “MYSTERY BOX CHALLENGE WITH THE DOLAN TWINS”, and “The Friendzone w/ Dolan Twins & Aaron Carpenter”.
The Dolan twins controversy
It’s a known fact that Jack often collaborated with the social media stars Grayson and Ethan Dolan, both on Vine and on YouTube. Although they appeared as friends in real life too, their relationship took a turn for the worse in September 2016. Around that time, the twins were promoting the release of their debut album “Tunesdays”; Jack soon took to Twitter to point out the fact that their album actually consisted of songs by other artists, and lashed out at one of their fans who defended the Dolans, but later deleted the tweets.
A few months later, Jack tried to reconnect with Grayson and Ethan, who invited him to visit them in Los Angeles, California. According to Jack, they told him that he wasn’t allowed to talk about visiting them, and refused to film a YouTube video with him, claiming that he wants to use them to gain more social media followers. They then apparently invited him to sign a two-year contract, with a clause obliging him to pay them 20% of his YouTube earnings, in exchange for collaborations. Jack signed it, but the contract ended up lasting only a month, before they mutually agreed to end it.
Jack talked about the ordeal in a series of Instagram livestreams from early 2017, while also claiming that the twins lied about being virgins, and avoiding alcohol. Following this controversy, he was harassed by some of the Dolans’ fans, whom he referred to as ‘a group of mentally ill HIV infected idiots’.
Where is Jack now?
Jack isn’t active on social media anymore, and is instead focused on his career and education. In the past he has been vocal about wanting to live a normal life, away from publicity, and talked about negative effects of social media. This, coupled with his fallout with the Dolan twins, contributed to his decision to completely quit social media in 2020.
Jack deleted all of his profiles, except for a personal Facebook account, which he uses to communicate with his friends and family.
He currently works as a Property Manager at a real estate firm based in Madison, Wisconsin, while working on his degree.
Does Jack have a girlfriend?
Since he has been away from the public eye, not a lot is known about Jack’s current personal life. Jack’s love life has been a topic of speculation since his rise to popularity on Vine, but he’s never publicly talked about being in a relationship with someone. In 2017, it was rumored that he was dating an alleged Trump supporter, Corina Kopf, with whom he posed for two Instagram pictures.
Many of his fans weren’t happy about her political affiliation, while in response Jack made it clear that he doesn’t care about politics.
Jack currently appears to be single, hasn’t been married or engaged, and doesn’t have children.
