Nick Austin may have only joined TikTok in November, but he's already one of the platform's biggest stars. The 19-year-old quickly rose to the top of the Hype House stats with his carefree and collaborative vids, and he now boasts over 5.4 million followers. Social media fame definitely comes naturally for the California native, and Nick is a total pro when it comes to steering clear of the TikTok house drama. It's no wonder why everyone's obsessed with this laid back Cali kid. Here's everything you know about Nick Austin.
TikTok fame wasn't his original plan
In his Famous Birthday's Q&A, Nick said he grew up wanting to be an actor but changed course once social media came into the picture. He said, "Now, social media is better than [acting] because you can be yourself and do what an actor does."
He got his nose pierced for a TikTok
Last year, Nick posted a challenge where the loser had to get their nose pierced. In the vid, Nick lines up with a few other guys from the house, and you can guess what happens next.
He once made a fan faint
In the Famous Birthdays Q&A, Nick said he once made eye contact with a fan, and that's all it took for her to fall to the floor. He didn't even get the chance to say anything!
His first kiss was super adorable
In his first YouTube video, Avani does Nick's makeup and the two chat about Nick's first kiss. Apparently, the big moment happened at his parents' wedding when Nick was just two years old. He was the ring boy, and another little kid was the flower girl. After he handed off the rings, he says the little girl kissed him. Cue the "Awws!"
He keeps his personal life, personal
Plenty of TikTok stars live out their lives on the internet—just look at Zoe LaVerne's PDA with boo Cody Orlove or James and Jack Wright hilarious family videos—but Nick's approach to social media is totally different. Other than a quick mention of his single status in a YouTube Q&A, Nick keeps his dating and family life fairly private.
He's got the cutest merch
The signature brown teddy bear on all of Nick's merch is crazy cute. TikTok teddy bears are totally a thing RN, and we are here for it.
He's scared of flying
Nick is really scared of heights and flying. He told Famous Birthdays, "I'm not going on a plane, ever," and when Avani asked him why he's so scared of flying in that Q&A video, he revealed that he had never been on a plane before. Luckily for Nick, he didn't have to travel far from his family's California home to make it to the Hype House.
Looks like his TikTok fam might be helping him get over his fears because he looks airborne in this post.
