Who Is Blake Gray?

The influencer, 22, originally rose to fame via Instagram prior to the days of TikTok, when Blake was around 15 years old. “I remember I grew like 200 followers in a day, and I felt pretty cool about myself,” Blake told MOOD Magazine. “I was like, ‘Oh, this is dope having followers. This is nice. Like, let me see if I can get some more followers. And I started posting videos, and I had a viral video and it kind of led me to leave school and focus on homeschool and then I started traveling.”

From there, he moved from Texas to a content house in Los Angeles with four fellow influencers, which he described the experience as, “Just working out every morning and then make a bunch of content in the afternoon.”

Blake then began to make videos for, an older version of TikTok at the time, until the app shut down in 2018. When TikTok made its (re)introduction, Blake was one of the first stars to gain traction on the app, making lifestyle and dance videos.

Prior to his rise to fame, Blake also tried his hand at acting in 2016 and acted in a short film called Of Ice Cream and Punching Bags.
