Prior to his meteoric rise to popularity on Floribama Shore, Gus Smyrnios had humble beginnings. Coming from a blue-collar background, he used to lay floors, roofs and even worked for two or three years on a farm. He was forced to leave his home at the age of 17, relying alone on friends to survive.
He tagged along with his then-girlfriend one day and was recognized by her agency. The gentleman signed him and assisted Gus in obtaining novel covers. He quickly rose to prominence as a real personality and was also a contestant on MTV’s The Challenge.
How Old Is Gus?
Gus was born in Tallahassee, Florida on 2 March 1995. According to his birthday, the 24-year-old is a Pisces.
The reality personality has a brother named Seth and two sisters named Hannah and Leah. Gus’ parents eventually divorced, and in 2015, his father married a woman named Audrey. The Floribama Shore star, for his part, was overjoyed that his grandpa had found love again as he celebrated his grandfather’s second marriage on Instagram.
Gus has come a long way since his days working on farms and living on the streets. His net worth has increased in recent years as he earns a salary of $50,529 every year. His Instagram following exceeds 300,000, which enables him to earn money through brand deals.
Gay Rumours and Relationships
Gus has been the subject of LGBT speculations among fans as a well-known reality star. While people continue to speculate about his sexual orientation, he laughs it off. On 1 July 2018, he tweeted that folks at the airport assumed he was gay due to his hanging earring and immaculate brows.
Along with his post, Gus’ relationship status clarifies his sexual orientation. The reality star – who stands at 5 feet 11 inches (1.8 m) – is currently dating his Floribama Shore co-star, Nilsa Prowant. Reality stars and partners continue to display their affection on Instagram via lovey-dovey photos.
Gus, on the other hand, made his connection with his blonde girlfriend public over Easter 2019. He was previously linked to Teen Mom 2 star Briana DeJesus.
The speculation began with the pair’s meeting in New York City while filming MTV’s Total Request Live. Fans couldn’t stop themselves from shipping the couple. Their expectations were raised when Briana shared a photo of them together on Instagram, to which Gus replied with a heart emoji exchange. However, the rumors gradually went down when events did not escalate further.
