Source - Instagram


Jakob Kasimir Hellrigl, known popularly as Candy Ken, is an Austrian rapper, model, TikTok star, VSCO personality, and artist with an estimated net worth anywhere between $2-$3 million as reported by a number of different sources.


Hellrigl first rose to prominence and garnered widespread attention thanks to his Candy Ken persona that combines a masculine appearance with attributes from feminine pop culture. His persona and his love for showing off his riches in a blatant manner, coupled with his lavish lifestyle have made him famous/infamous on TikTok depending on how you view it. Currently, his @candykane69 TikTok handle has over 16 million followers. There is no denying that Jakob is one of the most influential and famous personalities on the popular video-sharing platform as of July 2022.


This TikTok star and internet celebrity initially started as a rapper in 2014 when he was 22 years old. Without any major record label in Austria backing him, Jakob’s music blew up on social media which helped him earn quite a lot of attention from the general public. What helped him most was the unique gender-bending alter ego he created for himself. Under the moniker of Candy Ken, Jakob was able to achieve his dream of separating himself from your average rapper of the time, who built their identities around being tough guys and thugs.


Jakob was a high school student when he first thought about creating Candy Kane as his alter ego. As reported by Out and MTV Germany, Jakob was heavily influenced by Hello Kitty, Japanese Kawaii culture, and Barbie dolls for creating his Candy Kane persona


His first EP, Welcome to Candy Land, was released in 2014 which was followed by his second and third EPs, namely Candy Ken Paradise and Daddy 69, which were released in 2015. Jakob followed up the release of his third EP by supplementing it with his debut album, which was released in June 2016 and featured over 12 songs.


During the time he was dropping his second and third EP, Jakob caught the eye of a certain Nicola Formichetta, a world-renowned stylist and the creative designer for Diesel. Thanks to the unique juxtaposition of his Candy Ken character, Jakob was able to earn a call-up as a model for Diesel and subsequently walked for the Italian fashion giants in their Pride Week fashion show in New York City as reported by KATBLUT Magazine.


He received a lot of positive feedback from the people involved and earned himself another appearance, this time for Roberto Piqueras’ Berlin alternative fashion show in November 2016. Since he became a professional model in 2015, Jakob has appeared in a number of popular publications and magazines such as the Korean edition of Dazed magazine, VMAN magazine, Vogue Taiwan, and Paper Magazine.


Thanks to his career as a successful rapper and model, Jakob was also featured in an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2018 where he participated in Guess Who’s High, a staple game in the popular American talk show.


As of July 2022, Jakob has over 565 million likes on his TikTok account and has released two studio albums and six EPs.


Apart from his TikTok, modeling, and music career, Jakob is also a YouTuber having registered his channel on October 20, 2014. The channel initially was his own which was renamed and rebranded as The Unicorn Family, including Jakob and his then-girlfriend and present wife, JoStasy, and their son Rodeo.
