Join us today at 3:30pm PT/ 6:30pm ET on Instagram live, Black Girl Nerds host Ryanne Bennett interviews Metelus.
Born Greg Metelus in Haiti, he always knew he wanted to be in the entertainment industry but held jobs as a nanny and a server at Applebees. The pandemic hit and it forced him to take a hard look at where he was. It was in the depths of the pandemic that his social media amassed hundreds of thousands (now millions) of likes and followers. He came out of the pandemic with an entirely new career, one now that focused solely on his personality.
He caught so much attention that he was cast in the upcoming HBO Max reality show FBOY Island.
The core of this story is a true, self-made career. A real look at what someone can do if they take those chances! His ultimate goal is to become someone more influential for his people back home in Haiti.
As always, you can catch the conversation live or the replay on BGN’s Instagram page @blackgirlnerds.
