Also, she doesn’t mind going to the gym for her cardio session. In the gym, she likes to get on the treadmill or elliptical machine and also performs a series of bodyweight exercises such as burpees and crunches.
She complements her workout regime by eating a healthy diet.

Tana Mongeau Facts
Tana Mongeau had a rough childhood as her household was constantly engulfed in domestic fights.
When she was in 2nd grade, she was stalked by someone. Although she managed to get him jailed, she is not sure whether he has given up stalking her or not.
In December 2016, she started a feud with fellow YouTube star Ian Carter about his use of the n-word. The feud escalated when he went to her meet and greet event in January 2017 and yelled the same word upon meeting her on the stage, which led to her storming off, and he was thrown out by the security.
Tana started drinking when she was studying in the 8th grade. Also, she started smoking weed by the time she reached the age of 14.
In August 2017, a parent of one of the teens attending her show at Freehold in New Jersey called the police after getting offended by the overtly vulgar and sexual language used by Tana in the show.
Tana started her YouTube journey in April 2015 and her first video to receive more than a million views was Kicked out of Walmart.
In 2016, Tana had a septoplasty, a procedure to correct a deviated septum.
She was not invited to the VidCon 2018 event as a featured creator. Because of this, Tana created her own event called TanaCon in Anaheim, California. But, this didn’t go well and the event was called-off within 6 hours of starting.
To share uncensored content, Tana started her OnlyFans account in May 2020.
In October 2020, Tana lost her YouTube verification badge after she offered her OnlyFans followers nude pictures if they proved that they voted for Joe Biden in the presidential election. At that time, Tana had around 5.5 million subscribers on YouTube.
For Halloween 2020, Tana had dressed up as Paris Hilton by wearing a silver mini-dress.
She is known for her “storytime” videos and similar comedy videos.
Tana Mongeau was born on June 24, 1998, to Rick and Rebecca Mongeau in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she was raised.

On January 24, 2017, Mongeau posted a video titled “The N Word” which has received over 7 million views. In the video, Mongeau describes an encounter where a person on her tour (later revealed to be YouTuber iDubbbz) told her “say nigger”, in response to a tweet posted by Mongeau to iDubbbz, telling him to kill himself for his comedic use of “nigger” in his YouTube videos.
iDubbbz in turn made a video outlining her hypocrisy, pointing out examples where she had previously and publicly used the word hatefully. On February 17, 2017, Mongeau posted a video titled “An apology” in response to the iDubbbz drama which has received over 3 million views.

Mongeau announced on May 26, 2018, that she would be hosting her own convention, titled TanaCon, at the same time and in the same city as VidCon 2018, from June 22–23.
Mongeau intended TanaCon to be an alternative to VidCon after the VidCon 2017 organizers failed to give Mongeau the rights at the convention of a “featured creator”. TanaCon took place in Anaheim, California, at the Anaheim Marriott Suites, on June 22, 2018, and was cancelled the same day. Over 80 creators were set to hold panels at the event including Bella Thorne, Shane Dawson, Casey Neistat, Miranda Sings, Ricky Dillon, Elijah Daniel, Jenn McAllister, Gabbie Hanna, Trevi Moran, Lisa Schwartz and Jack Baran.
Despite Mongeau’s claims that 20,000 people tried to attend the convention, 4,000 to 5,000 people attended at most and the Marriott was not capable of holding even that many people.
Those who attended or lined up to attend complained of lack of food and water and standing for hours in the sun.
It was reported that many people were sunburned and that some people passed out because of the heat.
The event had received much attention and criticism. The Verge said that fans were comparing it to Fyre Festival, and attendees were yelling “refund” after the event.
Dawson said that agreeing to appear at TanaCon was the “worst decision he ever made”.
Mongeau later apologized and said that refunds would be issued.
Dawson later released a 3-part documentary style series of YouTube videos that shared Mongeau and other people involved in the convention’s perspectives on the event.
TanaCon was organized in collaboration with Michael Weist.

Mongeau’s fourth solo single, “FaceTime”, was released on May 18, 2019, alongside its music video.
In May 2019, VidCon said that Mongeau would be a “Featured Creator” at the convention. VidCon co-founder Hank Green had said in 2018 that he had “100% screwed up” in not inviting Mongeau to VidCon 2017 as a “Featured Creator”.
