Meet Markell

With more than 8.4 million followers on TikTok, Markell Williams is a force to be reckoned with. He hails from the small town of Brunswick, Georgia, where he was a competitive cheerleader (and many-time national champion), and those skills are apparent in the eye-catching dance videos that put him on the map. With the combination of his slick moves and incredible sense of humor, he quickly gained his legions of avid fans—us included!

That eventually led him to Los Angeles to join the House of Creators alongside influencers including Tayler Holder, Kelianne Stankus, Nate Wyatt, Chase Matton and the Mian Twins, and the rest is history. Today, he's known for his hilarious videos, flawless dancing and his affinity for cars. He himself owns a 2021 Model 3 Tesla, but he's also been known to buy cars for friends and family, making for some very sweet and emotional videos. We adore him, and we couldn't think of a better host for That's My Ride.

It's all about getting to know these celebs and their histories, and the insights the car you choose can reveal about who you are as a person.

In addition to Markell's House of Creators housemate Chase Mattson, the series also features episodes starring Cam Casey, the Pitman Sisters, Pierre Amuary Crespau, Nick Champa, Nia Sioux and Lexi Jayde.
