Who is Anthony Padilla?

Daniel Anthony Padilla was born on 16 September 1987, in Sacramento, California USA, and is a YouTube personality, best known through the YouTube channel Smosh, which he established with his childhood friend Ian Hecox, but which he’s since left to run his own self-titled YouTube channel.

The Net Worth of Anthony Padilla

How rich is Anthony Padilla? As of mid-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $8 million, earned through success on YouTube. He’s been involved with the video-sharing website since 2005, and as he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also increase.

Early Life and YouTube Beginnings

Anthony grew up with two brothers; when he was two years old, his parents divorced. He later attended Del Campo High School located in Fair Oaks, California, and during this time, became friends with future YouTube collaborator Ian Hecox. After matriculating, the duo attended American River College, but dropped out after two years to pursue a career on YouTube. They started their website Smosh in 2002 before deciding to post content as a part of YouTube three years later.

Shortly after joining YouTube, Smosh would become one of the most popular channels on the website; the name “Smosh” came from a misunderstanding of a friend explaining a mosh pit as a smosh pit.  The duo produced numerous comedic videos together, including lip sync videos, and the success of their “Pokemon Theme Music Video” led them to be featured in numerous high profile publications. They soon started to diversify their content, making short skits and online video series’, including “That Damn Neighbor” and “Food Battle”.

YouTube Success and Departure

Smosh would become one of the most subscribed channels on YouTube, and the demand for their videos led to further expansion, so they started doing vlog videos as well as playthroughs of video games. They had a series showcasing them eating food in and from various places, and answering questions from fans. In 2012, the two started three new YouTube channels, including ElSmosh, Shut Up! Cartoons, and Smosh Games. To cope with the increasing demand of content, they hired numerous other hosts to help them create content and manage their channels, but their video game-themed music videos still remained the strongest among all of their content.

Two years later they released a mobile app which gave access to their online content. They started collaborating with other companies, and even launched a web sitcom which features Smosh cast members as part of a team to help keep a pizza place going. In 2017, Padilla announced that he would be leaving the company to pursue independent video ventures, as he was experiencing a lack in creative freedom with the company. However, his friend Hecox announced that he would remain with the company. and see it through to the next phase.


Anthony later posted a video on his own YouTube channel, explaining that he left as he felt that the company handling Smosh were putting his creative decisions through a filter. After his departure, Smosh dropped significantly down the rankings of most subscribed channels, and their viewership also started to drop dramatically. It took many months before the channel was able to regain views and subscribers. Some people have urged him to go back to Smosh, but Padilla is intent on growing his own YouTube channel, which has now reached 2.6 million subscribers. He also mentioned that he is still close friends with Hecox, though the lack of collaborations between the both of them has left many speculating on the actual state of their friendship.

Personal Life

For his personal life, it is known that Padilla was engaged to fellow YouTuber Kalel Cullen, and they were in a relationship from 2010 to 2014. According to the both of them, their separation was decided mutually, and they have remained friends despite not appearing in each other’s videos. Padilla later stated that he felt that the relationship was manipulative throughout those four years. In 2015, he started a relationship with another social media personality – Miel Bredouw – who is known for earning popularity through Vine, and her Instagram account mielmonster. They officially announced their relationship in 2017, but it’s generally private, although they still infrequently post videos together.

Anthony’s had several health issues, including suffering panic attacks when he was younger, which he was convinced was hereditary. However, he stated later that he was cured, thanks to adopting healthier eating habits. Also when he was younger, he was diagnosed with Henoch-Schonlein Purpura, which left him stuck at home for four months. This was the time he learned how to code and better use the internet. The disease has remained dormant since being treated.
