Rise to Online Fame
Sadie grew up in a family that lived close to nature. She admitted that she was a cowgirl growing up, embracing that kind of lifestyle. Her family supported her in whatever endeavor she found herself busy in, which eventually led to her interest in YouTube, creating her channel in 2018; at that point, the website has been responsible for the creation of many popular vloggers and content creators. The following year, she uploaded her first video called “I CAN’T BELIEVE SHE DID THIS.”
Unlike other YouTubers, her first video quickly caught on and attracted a lot of views which boosted her popularity. She then started uploading regularly, focusing on content that revolved around her life, producing comedy videos, vlogs, skits, Q&As, among others. Her most popular video series is called “Drive With Us,” in which she invites family and friends on drives. It’s popular because she often gets candid during these videos, asking uncomfortable questions or talking about things teenagers are usually afraid to ask their parents.
Her next most popular series is her vlogs, the most popular is her experience while in Coachella. She also had a beach trip series that often featured her showing off bikinis and hanging out with friends.

Other iconic lines that come from her YouTube content include the middle finger icon, and “What’s up F*ckers” statement shirts. She has numerous pictures on the website modeling her merchandise.
In 2021, Crowell continued her expansion in the online space by starting a podcast called “Was that TMI?” standing for Too Much Information, which is the podcast theme.
