Who is Tineke Younger?
American chef, social media and TV personality, and YouTuber Tineke Younger, was born under the zodiac sign Virgo on 2 September 2001 in Frederick, Maryland USA. She’s perhaps known best for having recently competed in the reality show “Next Level Chef”, which starred Richard Blais, Nyesha Arrington and Gordon Ramsay, and follows a group of aspiring chefs competing to become the best; the show’s been nominated for two awards.
Unlike what many people on the internet seem to believe, Tineke isn’t related to famous British celebrity chef, TV presenter and restaurateur Gordon James Ramsay.
Education and early life
Tineke was raised in Frederick alongside her two younger brothers, by their parents about whom Tineke avoids speaking in public as they prefer to be left out of media; her mother’s believed to be a housewife and her father a successful businessman, but this is yet to be addressed by Tineke. She’s quite close to her brothers and occasionally features them in her internet content; they are today both interested in sports and are attending the same high school.
Tineke studied at a local high school in Frederick and was perhaps mostly into sports during her time there; she competed in high jump and long jump, and also occasionally played lacrosse with her friends. Tineke was also passionate about arts, appearing in various school plays as a member of the school’s drama club, dancing as a cheerleader and singing.
