While Wurst continued her activity with Twitter, she realized that Vine was not sustainable, especially after the announcement of upload disabling. She created her own self-titled YouTube channel, on which she started posting weekly videos. Some of the content she worked on included comedy clips, lifestyle videos and pranks, among other subjects. She also did challenges, and one of her most popular videos was a pepper challenge which earned millions of views. While she began earning significant amounts of money on the website, she also created an Instagram account which could do short form videos similar to Vine, and on which she also posted many personal pictures.Thanks to her consistently increasing popularity, numerous high profile companies started to approach her with offers of sponsored posts and endorsements. She attracted nearly two million followers, and according to various sources, companies pay higher amounts depending on the number of followers one has. She also continues to collaborate with other content creators, particularly with Stewart whom she mentions is the inspiration for her to try and pursue a similar career.
For her personal life, it is known that Lizzy is in a relationship with fellow YouTube and social media personality Lance Stewart. Unlike her, he had his start through YouTube, and has gained a significant following there as well. The two do some couple videos, that often have fun or controversial content, as well as doing a lot of vlogs together, plus several activities and travelling to various locations around the world.
A few years back, she mentioned that she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and had to undergo several procedures for treatment. The disease caused her to be very insecure about her breasts, and according to her, her breasts reduced in size due to the cancer. She then underwent plastic surgery to increase the size of her bust.
There are rumors that Lizzy and her mother aren’t on good terms, with sources suggesting that her mother was trying to use her daughter’s popularity to create publicity on her own channel. She declined, and as a result her mother asked her to leave the family home, since when she has been living with Lance Stewart. She didn’t actually post anything about her problems with her mother, but it was Stewart who posted a video of her crying which gained significant attention.
