His online exposure has led him to numerous other opportunities, including collaborating with other popular online personalities. As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Online Beginnings
While there is very little information about Luke, it is known that he grew up with an older sister. At a young age, he developed a strong interest for film, and wanted to know more about how movies are made. He’s watched a lot of films since he was a child, and also a lot of specials on how movies are made, including behind the scenes videos.
He decided that he wanted to make films of his own, and to pursue a career that involved directing films. Eventually he was given his first video camera and started recording, using himself as the main subject. Later on, he started gaining the help of friends and family members, leading him to create videos on a variety of topics. In 2011, he became very interested in the possibility of sharing content online especially with the rise of the website YouTube. The video-sharing website is owned by Google, allowing users to view, upload, share, rate, comment on and subscribe to other users. Since its rise to fame many user- and corporate-made videos have made it onto the website, making it the top go-to platform for video content.
Korns created his YouTube channel UncleKornicob in 2011, but later changed its name to Luke Korns so that viewers would associate the channel with him. He intended the channel as a continuous documentary of his life, as he used the platform to share his ideas, thoughts, and some adventures as well. He began uploading videos regularly each week, initially just random videos before focusing his content on comedy.
As his channel grew, he began to expand his content to show challenges and vlog content. Some of his challenges would become his most famous videos, including trying to live on $2 a day, and going vegan for a week. His videos in which he tries to speak Spanish have also become highly popular, due to his large Spanish-speaking fan base. He also revealed through YouTube that he has a twin brother, and his older sister has also appeared in several of his videos. With these videos earning him fame and increasing his net worth significantly, he has decided to post more of these types of content regularly, so he often posts videos of himself in Spanish, and also of him attempting weekly challenges for his followers. Most of his popular videos have gained millions of views, while he now has around two million subscribers to his channel.
One of the reasons for Luke’s popularity on the website is due to his looks, charm, and his wit which is often seen and heard in his videos. He mentioned that he does a lot of stupid things through YouTube, and became a breakthrough star of the platform thanks to his rapid increase in popularity. The fame eventually led him to gain a nomination for a Shorty Award for Breakout YouTuber.
Despite all of his attention towards YouTube and his weekly videos, he has also continued to pursue his passion in film work. In 2016, he collaborated with fellow YouTuber Alexis G. Zall in her project called “Zall Good”, which featured an interview with him along with other activities. The following year he worked on the film entitled “Perception” in collaboration with fellow YouTuber Michael J. Murphy, which is about a drug that allows a person to relive their memories.

However, people have not heard about him and his girlfriend for some time, with many stating that they broke up some time ago. Some say that he is still focused on working on his YouTube content, and so hasn’t talked about any relationships in recent videos. Similar to other popular YouTube personalities, he is highly active online through other social media websites. He has an account on Instagram on which he posts a lot of photos of himself travelling to various locations, often taken by a professional photographer. He also has a Twitter account on which he mainly posts some of his daily thoughts.
