Everything You Wanted to Know About TikTok Sensation Ryan Shakes

Ryan Shakes has been in the content creation game for more than half of his life, with nearly 7 million TikTok followers proving that his bold creativity and constant innovation are what keeps him at the top of his game.

The Florida native actually started on YouTube when he was just 9 years old, but when TikTok came out six years ago, he jumped on the opportunity, and it wasn't long before he became one of its defining influencers. He's been on TikTok for as long as it's been a thing, practically growing up on the app, not just providing some of the funniest and more creative takes on TikTok's biggest trends, but also being a tastemaker himself. He's also an entrepreneur, with his own ShakeyFam merch and signature ShakeyPods ear pods. We've been following Ryan for years, now, and here's everything we learned about him as our latest Man Crush Monday.
