Is Brad Mondo a Twin? The Truth about His Twin Brother
All YouTubers seem to be embroiled in controversies at some point in their career. Brad Mondo, a popular YouTuber for posting funny hair-style reaction videos and go-to hair guru, was berated by fans over a twin drama with his brother Eric Mondo.
If you’ve watched most of Brad’s video, you might have noticed that his popular videos are titled 'I gave my Twin a Major Hair Makeover,' 'I tried Squirt Gun Hair Color With My Twin!' and so on.
These videos were really popular. Why? Because people love twin content. But is Brad Mondo a twin?
YouTube is filled with twins; Dolan Twins, Dobre Twins, Niki & Gabi, Merrell Twins, Brooklyn & Bailey, and the list goes on. Mondo and Eric looked so identical that viewers believed they were twins, which boosted his views and subscribers.
It even started a Reddit thread. Fans discussed at lengths about whether they were identical or fraternal twins and how height differences were common amongst twins.
Twins or Brothers?
Fans became more curious about their personal life, and after some digging, they found out that their birth date and height are not the same.
Upon learning the truth, fans were upset at being lied to. In the same Reddit thread, some fans wrote that they clearly remembered Mondo explaining in a video that they were brothers, and the twin’s thing was a joke because people kept commenting that they looked identical.
YouTubers like Mondo know that it takes a lot to get views, and hence his “twin videos” were accused of having exaggerated titles known as click baits to hook potential viewers.
Although the brothers have not commented on it, Mondo uploaded a video on April 2 with his brother, and this time, he avoided using the word twin and opted for the title 'Drunk Get Ready With Me Ft. Eric Mondo.'
Mondo’s Illustrious Career
Mondo and Eric were raised by a hairdresser father. He owned a salon in which Mondo spent most of his time. He loved having total creative freedom and thus joined YouTube.
He initially posted reaction videos on the platform but gradually diversified his content and started giving hair care tips and showing his hairdressing skills to remain relevant.
Mondo set the record straight that washing hair in cold water would result in healthier, shinier hair and advised against using hot water.
I’m known as a hairdresser who reacts to hair fails. I love doing those videos and I think they’re super entertaining, but I’m more than that.
Soon he caught the attention of celebrities and worked with Shay Mitchell, Vanessa Hudgens, and Heather Marks. Today Mondo has over 7 million subscribers on YouTube and is the founder and CEO of XMONDO Hair.
