Kalel Cullen is one of the many YouTubers who became famous via the video-sharing platform.

So far, she has one official channel which was created in 2013 with almost two million subscribers and growing fast. Though she is a vlogger who aims to put smiles on people’s faces by providing lifestyle tips to spice up the lives of her fans and others alike, unfortunately, she is notorious for starting a channel only to close it abruptly. More interesting details about her are below.
Kalel Cullen (Kristin Smith) – Biography
Kalel Cullen, also known as Kristin Smith was born in Missouri, United States of America, on the 30th of March 1989. She happens to be a highly successful YouTube personality famous for her poignant posts and exceptionally entertaining videos. She has also described herself as an unapologetic cat lady and vegan food connoisseur. She started her first YouTube channel in 2010, a channel titled, “queen beauty,” and it was quite successful. She then decided to create another channel (KalelCullenTV) that would treat different fashion issues such as lifestyle, and general fashion tips which would be equally as entertaining as the first YouTube channel she created; however, this channel wasn’t as successful as she had hoped.
Kalel Cullen later discontinued both channels in other to start other ones she felt she was more passionate about and would be more useful for her career as a vlogger. The follow-up channel called “Cozplai” was thus created in February 2012, she posted tips on how to make cosplay costumes for favorite characters. Only just over 100,000 people subscribed to the channel which was highly disappointing. She would later abandon it after announcing that the channel involved too much work on her part.
More Channels And Co-host
In October 2012, a new channel, “WonderlandWardrobe” was launched. This channel was created to serve as a Vlog, DIY lifestyle, and fashion video. Fortunately for Kalel, this new channel set the pace for her career as a famous social media personality as it proved to be more successful compared to her previous ones as it garnered over 400,000 subscribers. Kallel Cullen soon revealed that she had the intention of pursuing her childhood dreams of writing a book and going into fashion designing and that running these simultaneously with her channel would be time-consuming. After a short while, “WonderlandWardrobe” was also deleted.
A new daily channel titled, WatchUsLiveAndStuff or WULAS, was announced by Kalel Cullen before the end of 2013. This time, it was co-hosted with her boyfriend, Anthony Padilla of Smosh. On the channel, they made posts on daily challenges and it was very successful, garnering around 1.7 million subscribers within a space of a few months. Kalel launched a new channel which she called, kalelpadilla, in the middle of 2014. The channel had advice, humor-related content, and lifestyle tips. She and her partner separated in the same year and made it known to their fans with a video on their vlog titled “Going Our Separate Ways.”
After ending her relationship with Anthony, she began hosting the daily vlog alone as she posted content related to her single life. This cost her channel a loss of around 100, 000 fans. Shortly after, kalelpadilla was deleted as well. Currently, the YouTube star has just one channel named “Kalel,” which was created in 2013 and formerly titled WatchUsLiveAndStuff or WULAS. The channel has over 1.9 million subscribers. Though she is off and on in terms of her posts, whenever she gets the chance to post content, they are usually centered around lifestyle, vegan, beauty, and advice videos.
Family And Personal Life Of The YouTube Star
Kalel Cullen’s career as a vlogger received a major boost after she announced that she was dating handsome fellow vlogger, Anthony Padilla.
