How Did Alissa Gain Online Popularity – Early Career?
Alissa started to become well-known online when she began posting short six second videos on the social media app entitled “Vine”, quickly gained followers and so enjoying a lot of exposure until the app closed down in 2017, by which time she had already amassed 600,000 of them. She continued to expand her reach by posting content on other websites, specifically on Facebook and Instagram which helped open more opportunities for her.
She then decided to move to Los Angeles, to join the company “Team 10” created by fellow YouTuber Jake Paul. The company was made up of five other members including Alex Lange, Lucas and Marcus Dobre, AJ Mitchell, and Neels Visser.

She was hired to do consistent modelling work too, for popular brands such as Converse.
Controversy with Team 10 – Leaving the Group
Alissa didn’t stay long with Team 10 as Jake Paul eventually kicked her out, locking her outside and throwing her stuff down the stairs. The feud escalated on Twitter on which Jake accused her of cheating during their relationship, while she accused him of manipulating her. According to Alissa, they were never more than an on and off couple anyway. Jake used this to his advantage by bringing other girls over and asking her to leave the house, all the while leading her to thinking that he loved her, as she was apparently head over heels in love with him.
Eventually, the problem took a turn for the worse as she decided to treat Jake the way he treated her by getting close to someone close to him, who according to Jake was his brother and another fellow YouTuber Logan Paul. Eventually, the feud was settled when Jake created a video admitting the mistakes he had made throughout their relationship.

They decided to party in Cleveland, and by the end of the night, they were confronted by five guys who decided to pick a fight with Banks. She tried to stop the fight, but became involved and when she started filming the incident, three other people (including two girls) started beating her up. They would later release the details of the incident on YouTube.
