Whether you were following Lele Pons from the start of her Vine career, heard about her thanks to the Amanda Cerny drama or have somehow landed on this page and have no clue how you ended up here, ; there’s probably some essential Lele Pons info that you’re going to want to know. But don’t worry, we’re about to fill you in – you know, just in case you end up on a Vine version of Mastermind one day.
Lele’s real name is Elenora Pons and she was born in Venezuela in 1996.
Lele’s family then moved from Venezuela to Miama in the United States when she was five years old.
Lele started using Vine when she was just 15 and uploaded her first video on 23rd April 2013.

In an interview with Teen Vogue, she revealed she was bullied pretty badly in high school.
“I went to high school and I started getting bullied because I was very weird. I mean, freshman year I went to school in a pirate suit—I just didn’t care. I’m not like the cool girls—I’m the other girl. The one that’s basically a nerd, but proud of that.”
Lele was the first person ever to reach one billion loops on Vine.
The fact she did this at just 18 years old will probably make you feel like you’ve achieved nothing in your short life (You have. Just not that).
Like most social media stars, Lele has released a book… And of course it instantly became a New York Times best-seller.
Surviving High School is described as a “charming debut novel about the ups and downs of high school that’s as laugh-out-loud addictive as her popular videos.”
Finally, Lele is also getting a whole lot of attention offline.
As well as appealing in one of Blink 182’s music videos, she also walked the catwalk for D&G alongside Marcus Butler and Jim Chapman.
