Chris launched his career on the internet on 30 July 2008 by creating his channel “ChrisFix”, which today numbers close to 7.2 million subscribers, and over one billion views of all his videos combined. Chris uploads videos with the goal of helping his fans fix their cars by themselves, as he provides step-by-step tutorials for various car problems.

Love life and relationships
Chris is quite secretive when it comes to his love life, and hasn’t shared any details concerning his past and present affairs with the public, however, there are rumors circulating the internet that the popular YouTuber might be taken.
Chris occasionally features a girl in his pictures and videos on Instagram, and she’s believed to be his girlfriend whom he met while attending college. Many people believe that the girl is actually his wife, but no proof has been provided to support these claims. Mostly because he hasn’t talked about his love life, there are also those who believe Chris to be gay.
As he hasn’t commented on any of these rumors, Chris might be single as of December 2020, he hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Chris likes to travel, and has been on road trips through a couple of US states, and pictures taken during his travels can be found uploaded onto his Instagram account. While travelling, he is mostly focused on visiting natural locations, abandoned cabins in the woods or high up in the mountains, and he occasionally camps.
He is normally physically very active anyway, as he has four to five training sessions at the gym each week, thus his muscular body – he is also said to be taking martial arts lessons.
He is a lover of animals, and has a pet dog which can also be seen in some of his Instagram pictures and videos.
In his spare time which is mostly late at night, Chris enjoys watching movies – his favorite actors are Vin Diesel, the late Paul Walker and Al Pacino, while a couple of his favorite movies are the franchise “Fast and Furious”, the trilogy “The Godfather”, and “Scarface”.
Age, face and net worth
Chris’ age is 24. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, his height is 5ft 6ins (1.67m) and he weighs around 135lbs (62kgs) – Chris doesn’t show his face in his pictures and videos, but there are still pictures of him uploaded elsewhere on the internet. He has promised his fans he would be revealing his face after reaching 10 million subscribers; he must be getting close with his combined followers!
As of December 2020, his net worth has been estimated at over $2.5 million.
