Who is Ava Rose?
Ava Rose was born on 11 October 2003, in Canada, and is a social media personality, best known for gaining a huge amount of fame on the platform TikTok. She mainly posts short-form videos including lip-sync videos and short videos akin to the now-defunct platform Vine. Since joining TikTok in early 2019, she has become one of the most recognised personalities on the site.
The Net Worth of Ava Rose
As of early-2020, Ava Rose’s net worth is estimated to be over $100,000, earned through a short but successful career online. Her popularity has led her to numerous opportunities, including modeling projects and partnerships.
Early Life and Online Career
Ava Rose grew up in Canada – her life was mostly quiet and out of the spotlight during her childhood. At the age of 15, she began using the app TikTok, creating her own account and posting videos. She quickly grew to popularity thanks to her attractive looks and entertaining videos. She often did lip-sync videos and others showcasing her love for dancing. At times she put in a bit more effort, but the general appeal of her channel was her looks coupled with her consistent uploads that attracted the majority of the site’s audience, who are mostly teenagers.
By the end of 2019, the number of her followers had grown to 1.2 million, and just a few months later reached over 1.5 million. This fame has also translated to other websites such as Instagram, on which she often posted similar content, though the difference is that it is mostly photographs of herself. Her popularity has led her to work with several professional photographers.
A History of TikTok
TikTok is a short-form video website on which users can post videos displaying their talents, comedic shorts, or lip-sync videos.
TikTok’s owner – ByteDance – is based in Beijing, China, and has been present in the Chinese market for some time under the name Douyin. However, due to strict Chinese censorship laws, a separate app was created for the international audience. Since its creation, it has become one of the most downloaded websites, particularly in Asia and the US. It is available in 150 markets, and is ranked as the 7th most downloaded app of the decade from 2010 to 2019.
The US version of TikTok originated from another popular service called Musical.ly, which is also a service that was developed in China, though found popularity in the western world.
Like TikTok, musical.ly allowed users to create lip-syncing videos. At the peak of its popularity, it had over 90 million registered users, and was hosting a few social media stars called Musers. However, the site was acquired by ByteDance in 2017, leading to the transition. Many of the former Musical.ly stars, unsure of the transition, went to other established platforms such as YouTube and Instagram.
The TikTok Audience
There was another popular short-form video platform called Vine, known for its comedic clips and lip-syncing.
The service was owned by Twitter during its peak, and was the most popular and relatively unrivaled in terms of the sheer size of popularity. It began to integrate well into the modern culture at the time, creating a phenomenon. However, the app abruptly ceased operations after it was acquired by Twitter, leading to its eventual closure. Many popular Vine users, unlike those from Musical.ly, saw TikTok as the next best venture, and began posting videos there. This led to an exodus of former Vine followers who now went to the new land of TikTok following their preferred content creators.
To date, studies have shown that the majority of the users of the site are under 30 years old; one of the reasons for its impact is due to the influence it has over younger audiences. Its popularity was even noticed by corporations, who started using the platform to gain the younger demographics’ attention. Sub-cultures also started springing up from within the site, as apart from the usual comedy or music videos, there are now TikTok accounts solely dedicated to pets, film, art, and many more.

She has yet to reach the pinnacle of TikTok, as premiere users have upwards of 20 million followers. While she’s had a few modeling gigs, it has not yet translated to her actually gaining enough of the job to label herself as a professional model. She is not yet signed to an agency, and for now prefers to just post multiple times a day on TikTok. While this is the case presently, many of the top stars of the platform have gone on to find success in their respective careers, with some gaining acting work and collaborations with major companies.
While Ava doesn’t talk a lot about her life outside of the platform, it is believed that she is single. Though she has expressed her interest in romance through some videos, she has not been seen with any potential partner, only shooting videos with her siblings. At 16 she is also still young, so likely not focused on finding a serious romance. She is also likely completing her education, above anything else.
