Education and early life
Anthpo was raised by his parents in New Brunswick, but because he respects their privacy, not many details have been disclosed about them; it’s believed that his mother’s a high school teacher and his father a welder, but this hasn’t been confirmed by Anthpo. He’s yet to talk about having siblings, and is thus believed to be an only child.
Anthpo studied at Kingsway High School, and was passionate about sports during his time there; he excelled at running track, but was also good at soccer and tennis. Upon matriculating in 2019, Anthpo enrolled at Rutgers University to study marketing, and during his four years there dedicated most of his spare time to creating his YouTube videos together with his friends; he also continued running track and playing various other sports.
Anthpo graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in May 2023, and has since been inactive on YouTube, although many of his fans are hoping to see him on the network again soon.
Most watched YouTube videos
Anthpo’s mostly popular on YouTube for his sense of humor, although a number of girls have claimed to watch him for his attractive looks, and for the fact that he’s a nice person. We’ll be covering Anthpo’s three most viewed YouTube videos, as these have contributed to his overall popularity.
His #1 video “Disturbing Students as Perry the Platypus” has been watched over 15 million times since 31 May 2019; it features Anthpo roaming around his college while wearing his costume of Perry the Platypus from the animated series “Phineas and Ferb”.

His #3 video “every episode of phineas and ferb” has been watched nearly eight million times since 25 May 2020, and features him and his friends re-creating various episodes of the series “Phineas and Ferb” in under two minutes.
Anthpo’s social media accounts are still open even though he hasn’t uploaded any new content in four months; these represented his main source of income, but after he graduated and found a job, Anthpo chose to stop using these networks, as well.
He’s still today followed by close to 200,000 people on Instagram, as his fans are hoping that he’ll return to creating content; Anthpo’s uploaded 69 pictures and videos, most of which feature him spending time with his friends, creating his YouTube videos and taking on internet challenges.

He’s still a TikTok star as over 830,000 people are following him on the network, while all his videos combined number nearly 30 million likes; Anthpo’s final video features him spending time with his friends on his graduation day.
He has a Facebook profile, as well, but seems to be using it only to stay in touch with his real life friends and family members, thus not allowing his fans to interact with him.
Love life and relationships
Anthpo was highly secretive when it came to speaking about his love life while he was still active on the internet, and even though he often joked about having a girlfriend and being in a relationship with his best friend Janice, it’s widely known that they weren’t romantically linked.
Anthpo often featured Janice in his Instagram and YouTube content, and the two truly appeared to be romantically linked, however, in one of his videos, Janice revealed that she was in a relationship with another boy.
There are also some who claim that Anthpo’s perhaps gay, and that this is why the popular former YouTuber didn’t speak about his love life, but this hasn’t been confirmed.
