Rhett & The LeRoys
The family’s channel was set up by the mother of the family, Shanna LeRoy, on June 30, 2010. However, they only started posting videos there on January 15, 2016. In their first video, appropriately titled ‘MEET THE LEROYS!’, the family introduced themselves to their prospective audience. About three and a half minutes into the video, Rhett made his first appearance on YouTube.
Although Kesley is by far the most popular among the siblings, Rhett has acquired a lot of fans as well. With his exuberant and energetic personality, he has won over the hearts of his followers. The LeRoys are one of the most well-known family vloggers on the platform, with over a million subscribers and more than three hundred million total views.
In one of the most popular videos on the channel, posted on October 4, 2017, Rhett pretends that he is sick to avoid going to school. The video has accumulated over three million views to date.
The family also runs a channel named ‘Hangin With The LeRoys’, on which they predominantly post challenge videos. Created on August 2, 20007, the channel has garnered nearly 70 thousand subscribers and about two million total views to date.
Rhett set up his channel on August 15, 2018, and uploaded the first video on it three days later. Titled ‘WHAT’S IN MY BACKPACK | RHETT LEROY’, it has acquired nearly 70 thousand views. On this channel, Rhett posts videos on all things that interest him, from sports to school accessories to challenges to Q&A sessions. Currently, he has over 50 thousand subscribers and more than three hundred thousand total views on the channel.

Presence on Instagram
Rhett LeRoy posted his oldest photo on Instagram, taken with several members of his family during a skiing expedition, on January 6, 2019. On April 14, 2019, he posted a picture of himself, and wrote this popular line in the caption, “Be who you are and say how you feel cause those that mind don’t matter and those that matter don’t mind.” However, he made a very common mistake and attributed it to children’s author Dr. Seuss, when it was originally said by either Sir Mark Young, then governor of Hong Kong, or Bernard Baruch, a prominent American financier.
His enthusiasm towards sports has earned him the moniker “Rhett the Jet”.
Rhett and his family are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
He is a close friend of Shae Bennett, who is part of the family vlogging channel known as The Ohana Adventure.
