Who is Alix Traeger?
Alix Traeger is an famous American chef and YouTube star, who achieved world fame through the BuzzFeed Tasty channel, and later her own YouTube channel, uploading videos in which she showcases her cooking talents, but also details from her daily life.
Age, Early Life, Parents, and Education
Alix Traeger was born on 20 April 1993 under the Taurus zodiac sign, in Santa Clara, California USA. She hasn’t talked about her parents, never sharing their names, but has stated that she’s quite close with her family, including her sister Janna Traeger.
From an early age, Alix was interested in food preparation, and desired to become a successful chef. After she completed local high school in her hometown, Alix moved to Los Angele, where she enrolled at Loyola Marymount University, from which in 2015 she obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Health and Human Sciences, stating that it was the closest she could get to food studies.
After graduation, Alix started a food blog, sharing her knowledge and interest in food, and started traveling, writing about her numerous travels and cuisines she encountered, before she finally settled in Stockholm, Sweden.
She started looking for a job in the food industry, and eventually began working part-time as a Food Stylist. As she said, it wasn’t an extravagantly paid job, but it marked her actual start in a career in food. She loved the job, and after a while as her knowledge developed, in July 2016 she was recruited by BuzzFeed to join their food channel Tasty. Alix began making videos for the channel, showcasing her cooking skills and in the process gaining a large fan base. She was loved by all thanks to her funny personality, but also her success as a chef.
Rise to Prominence
Gradually, Alix was becoming more popular as a chef, working hard for the BuzzFeed community, showcasing how to prepare various meals – her video “How To Cook Desserts If You’re Single”, became one of the most popular videos on the channel. She continued with videos such as “I Made a Romantic Dinner In 15 Minutes”, then “Ultimate Pantry Cookies At Home With Alix”, among numerous others that she made for Tasty, before she left the channel in 2019, even making the video in which she explained her reasons why she left BuzzFeed.
Alix launched her YouTube channel back in 2016, but didn’t upload anything until August 2018, when she posted the video “Welcome to My Channel + Tour of BuzzFeed Tasty”, which now has almost 600,000 views. She continued with videos, including sharing her story on how she got the job at BuzzFeed Tasty, and many others. She celebrated her Silver Button from YouTube with her fan,s with the video “Eating My Silver Play Button Ft. Rie & Worth It”.
The Covid-19 pandemic affected her negatively, especially quarantine time as she struggled mentally, talking in a video about her decision to leave Tasty and move back home.
She has since continued her career as a YouTuber, converting recipes into food, and acquiring more fans. She currently has more than 335,000 subscribers on her official YouTube channel, and her videos have been viewed more than 12 million times; some of her most popular include “A Day In My Life with Rie McClenny a BuzzFeed Tasty”, which has just under two million views, then “I Tried To Make TikTok’s Viral Whipped Coffee”, with more than 670,000 views and many others that have only added to her popularity.
Personal Life, Dating, Boyfriend, Single? Weight Loss
When it comes to her personal life, Alix has often talked about her ups and downs, and in the video “Why I’m Single” has explained her decision to stay single for now. She is focused on her growing career, but also on herself as a person. She’s talked about her experience as a single girl in her mid- 20s, and questions from family and friends ‘when are you going to find someone’, and many other questions that consider her single status. Nevertheless, she feels happy with things as they currently are.
Being a foodie, Alix has always been a bit chubbier, and would often put herself on a diet, but never reach the goal she’d set. Nevertheless, she talked about it in one of her videos, saying that she just wants to enjoy herself and life on the whole. She spoke about the yo-yo effect, and states that she doesn’t have a weight scale at home and doesn’t know how she much weighs, just that she feels good.
