There’s no harm in playing a little practical joke, and ‘PrankvsPrank’ stars, Jesse and his GF Jeana taught us best. Unfortunately, all good jokes and relationships come to an end, but let’s get to know the comedic pair.
Jesse Wellens, 33, and Jeana Smith, 33, are the brains behind the hilarious YouTube channel, PrankvsPrank. Since they began in 2007, the couple took our breath away, as they tormented each in a series of practical jokes. And they left us speechless again, when they announced they were splitting on May 18. This might be the end of their BF vs. GF rodeo, but here’s five things to know about the two.
1. The couple are taking a break miles away from each other.
Jesse and Jeana announced their split in a 10-minute video on their YouTube channel. In addition to revealing that they had a lot of issues in their relationship off-camera, they also reveals plans of moving. “Long story short, Jeana and I are going to take a break,” Jesse admitted in the video called A New Chapter on May 18. “From vlogging, from each other. I’m going to move to New York City. Jeana’s going to stay here.”
2. Jesse and Jeana had been dating for over 10 years.
Whoa! That’s crazy. Jesse and Jeana had been together way before they started the channel. The couple had been dating since December 2005, which was two years before they started filming PrankvsPrank in 2007. The couple decided to call it quits on May 18 of 2016. So if we’re doing the math right, the couple had spent a whopping 11 years together!
3. Jesse released a chart-topping song called “Cookie Dance”
Jesse has an alter ego he likes to call Chip Chocolate. And in 2013, Chip Chocolate released a rap song on iTunes called “Cookie Dance,” that reached No. 68 on the U.K. Singles Chart. It was also No.1 in Sweden!
4. Jeana admitted to thinking about marriage with Jesse before the split.
In a live chat on the couple’s YouTube channel, Jeana openly talked about her relationship. When Jesse was out of the room, Jeana said that her first impression of him wasn’t great. But after the couple started dating, she revealed that she had thought about marriage. She even told users on the live chat that she would marry him if he proposed.
5. Jeana and Jesse also have a YouTube channel called BFvsGF
Jesse and Jeana also have another channel, BFvsGF, which focuses on their daily lives, rather than pranks. They often post videos of them walking around Philadelphia or visiting New York City. And Jesse introduced all of their users to his alter ego, Chip Chocolate. The shows brought in over 2.5 billion video views.
