Ross Smith is an American TikTok star, social media celebrity, and former professional football player. Smith is widely recognized for his comedic videos that have earned a massive following across all social media platforms. Most of Smith’s videos feature his grandmother, Pauline Kane, often referred to as Granny Smith and Cocaine Fro. The duo has earned a massive following on all social media platforms, though their TikTok account has the highest following, with over 22.5 million followers as of July 2022.
Prior to becoming a social media superstar, Smith has always been an extremely talented athlete since his childhood. During his high school days, Smith was the captain of the Olentangy Orange High School. He was an influential figure in the team and he led his team after their abysmal first season to securing a berth in the playoffs in their second year of existence as a school. Apart from football, Smith also represented his school as a sprinter and lacrosse player as well.
Following this successful season, Smith was drafted by the Dayton Flyers, the football team of the University of Dayton in Ohio in 2012, where he was a starter for three years.
Around this time, Smith also signed up on Instagram in late 2012 and on now-defunct Vine in early 2013. Smith was signed by the Potsdam Royals, an American football team based in Potsdam, Germany that plays in the German Football League in 2015, where he played for a couple of months.
He uploaded a lot of videos on Vine and earned over 250,000 followers by the time it shut down.
Following the closure of Vine, Smith registered his YouTube account on July 11, 2014, under the name Ross Smith. The channel currently features outrageous and offbeat pranks which often feature Pauline, random models, and himself playing pranks and scaring people in public spaces among many other things. His comedic videos have earned him a massive following on YouTube where he currently has over 2.64 million subscribers and his content has been viewed over 893,247,281 times.
