Jake Joseph Paul is an American actor and YouTube personality, he became popular on Vine. Paul first came into prominence for playing the role of Dirk on the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark.
Nine months after Greg and Pamela Paul (now Pamela Stepnick due to remarriage) got married, their second son, Jake Paul, was born. Jake has claimed to possess Austrian-Jewish, English, German-Jewish, Hungarian-Jewish, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh ancestry.
Jake said in his “Draw My Life” video that he got his nice and caring side from his mother and his manly, hardworking side from his father.
His mother, a nurse, and father, a real estate agent, former military man, “instilled a great work ethic and competitive spirit from the time he can remember”, Jake said.
He lived in a house with a large front and backyard and with his family would go to the woods, play sports, and “ride four-wheelers”.
Growing up, Jake, along with his older brother, Logan Paul, loved playing football. By the time he was ten, he started playing the sport at his local school’s league, scoring 33% of the touchdowns in the game. Jake has stated that growing up, he and his brother always wanted to be the best at something. Therefore, they trained with their father to improve their football skills.

Filmed by their mother, who Jake says was their number one fan and his father, the head coach of their Peewee team, the Paul brothers also spent time filming each other doing random stuff which transitioned into skits and scripted content.
Another one of the Paul brothers’ hobbies was watching Smosh, who Jake says was their favorite YouTube channel which inspired them to create a YouTube channel called “Zoosh” which is still up online after it being created in YouTube’s early years.
On the channel, they would upload the same type of videos in their free time which although Jake finds bad now, though they were funny back then, so as did their friends which made them continue for a while, in the process, trying to gain a following.
Around this time, after fighting for a period, Jake’s parents divorced. Jake and his brother were shaken by the event but eventually learned that breakups and heartbreaks are a part of their life. Additionally, he benefited from “two Christmases”.
Then middle school for Jake started. There, he was a “class clown”, causing trouble, making jokes, and as he says, “couldn’t sit still”. Jake says it’s because he didn’t like school which he also states he still doesn’t.
