The phrase “one to watch” is somewhat overused in our world of over exposed media personalities and online fame. But when someone manages to hit 2.5 MILLION subscribers in just four days, you kind of have to admit that they are, in fact, one to watch. And that’s exactly what Erika Costell did.


Who is Erika Costell?

Erika is a 23-year-old model from Bedford, Michigan. Despite having lived in the Team 10 house for quite some time now (she actually started out as a crew member), Erika only launched her channel on 9th July.

Here are some more fun facts about Erika Costell

  • Erika has twelve siblings
  • Erika’s mum is called Angel
  • Erika is a national champion cheerleader
  • Erika had a pet goat as a child, named “Twinklebuddy”
  • She’s still obsessed with goats

“I helped everybody grow and I’ve been the mom of the group and now I’m still involved in the business side but it’s great, everyone’s been so supportive,” she told Hollywood Life.


Erika Costell “married” Jake Paul in Vegas

According to a vlog from Jake Paul, he and Erika are joined in holy matrimony. They married along with fellow Team 10 housemates Chance Sutton and Tessa Brooks.

Okay, so they’re not really married. But the video’s cute.


Erika’s a smart cookie

Erika is bursting with personality and smarts gained from seven years in the modelling industry and studies in business administration at Middle Tennessee State University.


So what can fans expect from Erika’s channel?

Erika’s shared five videos in the month that her channel’s been live. So far, they’ve all been daily life vlogs with a sprinkle of Team 10-style clickbait. This will probably continue until Erika finds herself embroiled in some highly entertaining Team 10 drama. Hell, she might even get booted out like Alissa Violet was when she broke up with Jake Paul.
