Bella Poarch's rise to stardom

Born February 8th, 1997, Poarch moved to the United States of America with her family at age 13 from the Philippines. After enlisting in the Navy and completing tours for her country, her claim to fame after military service was a lip-sync video posted on TikTok to the viral song “M to the B” by British artist Millie B.


Her content was initially criticized as 'low-effort,' but the TikTok star's numbers and high profile collabs do not lie. In 2020, Bella Poarch was spotted alongside Tyga lip-syncing some songs, which sparked off the rumor mill.

In another testament to her popularity, the TikTok star reportedly grabbed the interest of two large Esports organizations - 100Thieves and FaZe Clan. Both parties apparently showed interest in signing the internet personality as a content creator under their respective banners.

Speaking about how TikTok saved her life, Poarch realized that she had PTSD and discussed the love and support she received from fans after going viral.
