JonTron Wiki Biography

Jonathan Aryan Jafari was born in Rancho Palos Verdes, California USA, on 24 March 1990, so under the zodiac sign of Aries and holding American nationality – better known by his nickname JonTron, he is popular for his “JonTronShow” YouTube channel.

Who is JonTron’s girlfriend?

JonTron’s girlfriend was Nicole Rodriguez, but the two have recently broken up. Nicole is an animator who lives in New York and is better known by her nickname Shnikkles. It doesn’t seem that the two are going to get back together, and JonTron is currently more focused on his YouTube career and not on pursuing love, although because of a picture JonTron uploaded on his Instagram account in May 2019, he is rumored to be dating a woman named Mary.

Early life and education

JonTron is quite secretive when it comes to his early life and his background story. He grew up with his mother who is originally from Hungary, and his father who is of Persian descent – he never talks about any siblings and is therefore rumored to be an only child.

He enrolled at the Palo Verdes Peninsula High School in 2004, and after matriculation in 2008, he decided to focus on his YouTube career and not chase a college degree.


The rise of JonTron on the Internet

JonTron’s career was launched the moment he created his account on the Newgrounds social media platform – he went for the name “BirdmanXZ6”, and uploaded a couple of animated videos about human-like onions throughout three years. In 2006, he launched his first YouTube channel with the same name, and it is still open even though the popular YouTuber is not using it – it counts over 3,200 subscribers nevertheless.

His career began for real when he created his “JonTronShow” YouTube channel on 31 August 2010 – at the very start, he was focused on uploading gameplays of numerous video games, and featured his parrot Jacques in many of them. He has reviewed almost all the games from the “Hercules”, “Barbie”, and “Conan the Barbarian” franchises, always adding a bit of comedy to his videos just to make them more fun for his fans. After a while, he begun uploading skits and reviewing movies but not as often as his game reviews. The most popular video on his channel is entitled “Waterproofing My Life With FLEX TAPE”, which has been viewed by over 41 million times (plus one as I have just checked it out). The channel currently counts nearly 5.4 million subscribers, and over 760 million views of all his JonTron’s videos combined.

The progress of the “JonTronShow”

JonTron created two sub-channels entitled “JonTronStarcraft” and “JonTronLoL” in 2011 – the first one featured videos of him playing the popular strategy game “Starcraft”, while the other had him playing the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) game “League of Legends”. The YouTuber thought that the channels were going to become popular thanks to his main channel, but he was wrong, and he soon stopped uploading new videos.

In the spring of 2015, JonTron created the web series entitled “JonTron’s StarCade” which features his gameplays of video games based on “Star Wars” movies, produced by a subsidiary studio of The Walt Disney Company and counting nine episodes, finishing at the end of 2015.

Controversies and politics

JonTron often talks about politics, once stating that he voted for Barack Obama, and that he was on Bernie Sanders’ side during the 2016 contests.

Rumors about JonTron being a racist started after he quoted Steve King on Twitter, saying that ‘we can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies’. To stand in defense of what he said, JonTron appeared in a live Twitch stream of Destiny, during which he talked for nearly one and a half hour about the matter. He explained how white people don’t want to be a minority in their country, but that doesn’t make them racists – he also talked about a statistic which says that wealthy black people break the law more often than poor white people. After the stream finished, many viewers criticized his point of view, especially the part about poor white and rich black people.

JonTron’s YouTube channel suffered a loss of subscribers due to his political views, while some of his partners refused to continue making videos with him. He was seemingly kicked out of the “NormalBoots” channel of which he was the founder with a couple of friends, however, it was later confirmed that it didn’t happen because of his political views, but he was rather planning to quit for months before he finally did it.

Other likes and interests

Besides his passion towards playing games, JonTron also loves to sing, but has never pursued a career in music. He is a big animal lover, and has a green-cheeked conure parrot named Jacques – he is one of his four pets and has his personal (quite long and descriptive) fandom wiki page.

Is he engaged?

JonTron currently appears to be single, and is therefore not engaged. He is quite secretive when it comes to his love life and hasn’t shared anything about his past or present affairs with the public (except for his relationship with Nicole Rodriguez). He’s never married and doesn’t have any kids, however, a recent picture of him with a woman named Mary started rumors of the two being romantically involved.

Awards and nominations

JonTron was honored as one of the “7 Awesome YouTube Gamers You Should Watch” by the CraveOnline male lifestyle website. Even “Time” magazine stated that JonTron was one of the most searched meme’s on Google, while WatchMojo video producer put JonTron amongst the top 10 YouTube video game reviewers.

Appearance and net worth

JonTron is currently 29 years old. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, is 5ft 10ins (1.78m) tall and weighs around 176lbs (80kgs). According to authoritative sources, his current net worth is estimated to be over $1 million, and is slowly rising thanks to his YouTube channel.

Social media presence

JonTron is quite active on other social media platforms besides YouTube – he launched his Twitter account in October 2010 and has so far gathered over 3.4 million followers, and tweeted more than 7,500 times. His Instagram account is followed by over half a million people, while he has uploaded nearly 50 pictures – he runs a Facebook page as well, which is followed by over 300,000 fans.
