Who is Ashtyn Sommer?
Ashtyn Sommer Joslyn was born on 24 June 1994, in Burnsville, Minnesota, USA, and is a YouTube personality, best known for being a part of the couple channel Ashtyn&Jon which she manages alongside her boyfriend Jon McNamee. They have over 200,000 subscribers on their channel which uploads around a couple of videos per week.
The Wealth of Ashtyn Sommer
As of mid-2020, Ashtyn Sommer’s net worth is estimated to be over $500,000, earned through a successful career online. Aside from her earnings on YouTube, she also earns income through an Only Fans channel which she sells videos and pictures to monthly subscribers.
She also earns through opportunities from other online social media platforms.
Early Life and Online Beginnings
Ashtyn first met Jon during high school as they both attended the same school. At the time, they were still in different relationships but remained friends throughout. They started dating near senior year when they discovered that both of them were single. Following the end of their high school education, the couple decided to create a YouTube channel as a hobby. They also sought it out as a potential means to earn income as it has become a successful avenue for many people.
YouTube is an online video sharing platform and one of the most popular websites on the internet. It allows users to upload videos to share with the public. They can then potentially earn income through Google’s advertising revenue provided that they meet all the requirements. Like many couple YouTube channels, they uploaded videos together. Ashtyn&Jon started more as a reaction channel where they’ll watch other popular videos and then react to these videos. Reaction videos have become a niche on YouTube and are very popular as many find it compelling to see how others react on a similar video.
Rise to Prominence
The couple decided to upload videos every other day and while they don’t necessarily adhere to the schedule, their consistent uploads eventually built a steady following. As their channel grew in popularity they attracted the ire of several viewers who felt that this rising trend of reaction channels has been diminishing other channels on YouTube. Reaction content creators essentially don’t create any original content aside from their reactions so it takes lesser effort so they can upload regularly. Critics of reaction channels argue that these channels are getting views that are meant for the original video which put in a lot of time and effort to make.
With the criticism ramping up, the couple decided to change gears and began doing other types of videos. They set up their main channel as a video blog (vlog) type of channel where they showcased some of their day to day activities and occasionally, some travel videos. To support some of their reaction channel supporters, they created a second channel on which they almost exclusively upload those types of videos.
In recent months, Ashtyn&Jon began making videos that are in with the trend among many other YouTubers.
They often do prank videos which often involve them pranking one another. The pranks sometimes go extreme and some of the viewers wonder if they are making legitimate content or if it’s mostly fabricated. They also do challenge videos, question and answer videos, and storytime videos which often involve them talking about their past like how they met. These videos are usually made depending on the demand of their subscribers. Some of the most popular videos often involve them doing public displays of affection or have clickbaity titles. A lot of people also enjoy Ashtyn doing fashion hauls and trying out bikinis or other form-fitting clothes for videos.
They also streamed some of their reaction videos, first on Twitch before later moving to Streamlabs. However, they’ve taken a break from reactions temporarily. They also set up a Patreon account so that some of their followers can donate directly to support them. Patreon has become a popular platform for YouTube content creators to earn extra income due to the ever-changing policies of the website which has led to lesser earnings for some.
Only Fans and Patreon
Aside from their couple’s channel, Sommer has been gaining a lot of attention thanks to her attractive qualities.
She isn’t shy to show off her body and post sensual photos as needed. Her Instagram account is filled with these photos and to take advantage of this, she created an Only Fans account. The website allows content creators to put a monthly subscription service to exclusive content. Paying subscribers can get access to photos and videos that aren’t available to the public. This has been very popular among content creators that aren’t afraid to show more.
Only Fans has been noted to be a site that’s very popular among sex workers and those willing to send nude photos. Those who aren’t comfortable with posting that type of content can post sexy photos akin to glamour models.
The website has been a way for content creators to earn directly from their fanbase and at times, it allows users to have exclusive access to their favorite creators.
Aside from their couple’s Patreon, she also established a solo Patreon account that functions the same as Only Fans. This type of work has led to a lot of people questioning the status of her relationship with Jon but it seems that everything she has posted has been made with his consent as well.
While Ashtyn and Jon have been together since high school, they haven’t married and show no sign of marrying anytime soon. They had a child sometime after graduation and they try their best to keep her uninvolved with their online work. She posts a few photos of their daughter on social media from time to time.
