Paytas’s first choice of occupation was to be a model and an actor. Being born and raised in Riverside, California, they soon shifted to Los Angeles in 2006 with hopes of starting their own career. However, finding it difficult to land any major roles or successful modeling gigs, Paytas started working as a lingerie model and even worked as a stripper and an escort to support themselves as reported by The Telegraph. They were selected as a correspondent on The Greg Behrendt Show and were even featured on Who Wants to Be a Superhero, a reality TV series in 2007.
Following this, they eventually decided to try their luck at YouTube and registered their YouTube channel under the name blndsundoll4mj in 2007.
