Florida Man Goes Viral On Tik Tok For Helping Others
If you own a home, you know how expensive it can be when it comes to home improvements. We all wish to never see the day our air conditioner stops working because most of us have been there before or know someone who has. It burns a hole in your pocket. If only there was a cheap way to learn how to fix things in your house. Well now there is with JMg8tor. This Florida man recently went viral for their videos teaching his viewers home repair hacks.
Believe it or not, g8tor’s rise to stardom wasn’t even planned. Quite honestly, it wasn’t even his idea. The Tallahassee based repair man actually got his start when his son had the idea to put him on Tik Tok. G8tor never thought the video would get much traction, but after 20 million views in two days he started to get behind the idea. 2 years later, gator has gained close to 3 million followers and over 40 million likes from his DIY repair hacks.
When looking at the comments on the video, G8tor told Dexerto “The whole comment section was just like, ‘Can you show me how to do another tape measure hack?’ ‘How do you use a drill?’ ‘Can you fix a toilet, do you fix a door?’ And I was like, this is crazy,”.
G8tor’s success even gained him a sponsorship with WD-40 after the brand saw an effect from his videos. Though he still works his day job repairing his rental properties, G8tor continues continues uploading repair hacks to help others.
