Hayes, 16, is a major internet sensation just like his brother, with 14 million followers across Facebook, Vine and Instagram. He’ll soon star in his very own web comedy Top Grier, where he’ll run his family’s 19-acre farm in Mooresville, North Carolina. The 12 episodes of the 30 minute show will be featured on the app Go90.
He made his major TV debut on the 21st season of Dancing With The Stars in 2015, where he was the youngest contestant to ever compete on the show. He was partnered with Emma Slater and finished in a respectable eighth place.
