Diply 30 Oct 2018

Tana, Tana, Tana. Hilarious, dramatic, and slightly problematic (like many a YouTuber), Tana Mongeau is a force unto herself. The YouTube and Instagram queen has done it all, from recording storytime videos about being haunted to hosting a widely publicized (and criticized) convention to rival Vidcon.

In between, she's an influencer, purveyor of chaos, and...oh yeah, dating Bella Thorne. Meet Tana.

1. Tana and Bella just celebrated their one year anniversary.

The very NSFW video involves all sorts of questionable shenanigans. You just...you kinda have to see it to believe it. Maybe don't watch it if you're squeamish. Or under 18.

Tana revealed in a widely talked about video that the staff of Vidcon had allegedly treated her very poorly in years prior. So, she decided to make up her own convention to rival Vidcon, held on the same weekend, in the same city.

Tanacon turned out to be something of a PR disaster, with crowds in the thousands trying to pack into a convention unequipped to handle them. Tana canceled the final day of the con amidst a ton of controversy.

She's also worked with Jeffree Star.

Well, I say "worked with." What I mean is that they did a mukbang with James, which involves all of them sitting around and eating as much food as possible while we watch.

I guess she could call up the guys from Ghost Hunters(or even Shane) to help investigate that...puzzling case. You know what, skip the guys and just go straight to Mulder and Scully.
