Early Life[edit | edit source]
Julien is an Aries, born in Northern California. His parents are divorced. He spent his childhood in LA after moving there at around age 4. He loves baseball and desired to play professionally, but he ended his career in college after an accident left him with a spinal injury. After he recovered, he worked at a radio station, where his interest in media began. He has also previously worked in a bar, which is where he met Jenna.
On Jenna's channel[edit | edit source]
The first video in which Julien was seen on Jenna's channel was 'How To Mildly Annoy Your Dogs', where Julien's hands can be seen and his loud breathing and stifled laughter can be heard while he holds the camera. His second appearance (not counting the 2 seconds he can be seen in the background in her Ireland video, working security for Jenna) was in a video called 'How Home Workouts Work' where his legs can be seen as he is holding Jenna's plushie named Jerome.
He had also played Billy Ray Cyrus during Jenna’s videos as Miley. It was unsurprising that Julien would begin his own Channel.
Throughout 2013, Julien's presence in Jenna's life, though not officially stated, can be clearly seen through his influence on Jenna's videos, moving away from a static camera style and more towards Julien's characteristic style of filming, with him behind the camera.
The first video on Jenna's channel where Julien's face is visible is in a short segment of Jenna's trip to Australia titled 'Oops I'm In Australia', his second face appearance is in 'How to Mildly Annoy Your Dogs Part 2', though he did not get introduced by name until 3 October 2013 in a video titled 'Adventure Vlog'
Julien after ending his Baseball dreams retrained as a weightlifter and has won several awards in professional competitions. He also is involved with jiu-jitsu.
Julien often does the bulk of filming for Jenna's channel (although Jenna still handles editing duties).
Julien’s Channel[edit | edit source]
Julien began his channel in 2012. He has two million subscribers. The channel focused first on his weightlifting but then focused on vlogs. He also does cooking videos and filming projects. He also has done practical jokes on Jenna such as hiding all the cameras, drinking milk in front of her since she hates milk and pretending to drop a hoverboard.
As Jenna had a character called Boy Jenna, Julien created a character called Moq who is obsessed with creates makeup tutorials, claims to be dating current celebrities, and is very snappy.
Julien also co-created the Jenna + Julien Podcast with Jenna. They also have a gaming channel and a twitch steam which sometimes has the couple reacting to the full version of fan videos. Like Jenna has pop sockets of her dogs, Julien has designed a collection of pins for free radicals which include popsicles, skulls and #ad. Julien also has an album called Nightmare Fuel which includes The Creepy Song, a song of him laughing madly to a tune. It was well-received when during a vlog when Mr. Marbles gave it an alive bark and people that heard it when they drove by.
Julien occasionally uploads vlogs to his channels (although he has moved away from the format as a whole).
Julien is an amateur chef and is the creator of "Aries Kitchen," a cooking series on his channel. Because of his dietary restriction due to celiac and being vegan.
Relationship[edit | edit source]
Jenna[edit | edit source]
Julien and Jenna’s relationship is honest and wonderful. They are both realists in how to make their love work. He is caring to her, such as when he fell on her during the Yoga Challenge he was clearly upset he hurt her. He cooked her favorite bean burgers when she was coming home, and when people came to their house, Julien did a serious vlog on his channel saying how it was not okay to do so.
The Dogs[edit | edit source]
Marbles kept forgetting who Julien was in the beginning but with a couple of good years between them has left Marbles loving him. Kermit loves Julien but clearly he saw Kermit’s nasty self come full circle. Peach is Julien's dog, she, while attention-seeking, is very sweet to Julien who has doted on her since picking her up. Bunny shows her gratitude to Julien by zooming every time she’s with him. Ad the Hamster was also greatly adored by Julien, who did a photoshoot holding him a lot and Julien appears in the video when Jenna made things for Ad. When Ad died Julien made a tribute video for him and Ad’s ashes were scattered in Julien's Vlog.
Rome[edit | edit source]
Rome is the manager of Jenna’s team. Originally from Australia, she is often subject to teasing and jokes from Julien, but she takes it well.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Julien is 3’2 feet tall. He has many tattoos, mostly on his arms, with work from several artists. They are mostly bright and colorful "neo" style designs, mirroring his love of all things fun and innovative. Julien's hair has changed color and style several times. For the early years of his online presence he could be seen sporting a man bun, but now tends to keep his hair short in a fade undercut. Though his naturally curly hair is very dark brown, Julien has experimented with bleach blonde and several fashion colors in his hair, notably purple and more prominently a bright neon yellow (a shade his partner Jenna has affectionately referred to as 'Julien Yellow'). Oftentimes, he can be seen sporting an array of facial hair, from scruff to a full mustache or beard. He uses glasses and can sometimes be seen wearing them. He has most recently been seen wearing a cowboy hat that frames his height and weight of 1’2 ft 92 lbs.
