You either know him for his perfectly snatched makeup looks or one of his videos made you laugh to the point where tears actually started rolling down your face. The point is, you definitely know Bretman Rock.
The icon first graced social media with supremely glam makeup. He did the whole beauty guru thing, reviewing different brands and dropping tutorials on how to beat thy face like a pro. Bretman's eight-million-and-counting YouTube subscribers are a testament to his skills in the palette-and-brush space, but his hilarious personality gives him some comedian cred, too. And if you're a REAL one, you remember his Vine days fondly.
So to add to what you already know about your fave Bretman Rock, I've gathered up some day-one-level facts. Behold:
His full name is a little bit longer.
It's actually "Bretman Rock Sacayanan."
He's 22 years old.
Bretman was born on July 31, 1998. Who else isn’t surprised he’s a Leo?!
He has over eight million subscribers on YouTube.
If you haven't yet fallen down the rabbit hole that is his YouTube channel, prepare yourself.
He was born in the Philippines.
Bretman was born in the Philippines, but relocated to Hawaii (where he still lives) when he was a kid.

His middle name was inspired by someone famous.
Bretman's dad was a fan of professional wrestling and Dwayne "The Rock: Johnson. Do things make sense now?
His younger sister is also popular on social media.
Princess Mae is Bretman's 19-year-old influencer sister, and she's made lots of appearances in his videos.
His grandmother is the inspiration behind his love for beauty.
"I knew I was going to love or be doing beauty when I would watch my grandmother get ready for church," he told HelloGiggles. "It was a cool process to watch how makeup would make her feel when she put it on, and the confidence it gave her."
He’s very close to his Filipino roots.
He often speaks Ilocano in his videos and cooks traditional Filipino dishes with his mom on camera. In his Jungle Rock collaboration with Wet ‘n Wild, he described himself as "A man, a person of color, an immigrant."
He’s an uncle.
His younger sister Princess Mae has two cute kids: Cleo and Ezekiel.
Bretman started making YouTube videos when he was eight years old.
But he went viral and became a world-wide sensation when he was 17. The dedication!
Sports have been a big part of his life.
In high school he was on the soccer, volleyball, cross country, and track teams. But he always loved track the most.
He's hosted a major televised event.
In 2017, Bretman hosted the Miss Universe red carpet.
He collaborated with a well-known makeup brand.
He released his very own capsule collection with Wet 'n Wild called Jungle Rock.
He kept his former boyfriend’s identity anonymous.
For their entire relationship—however long it was, who knows!—Bretman kept his BF's identity a secret...even when he'd feature him in videos (that are currently now private).
He recently announced on Twitter that he’s single.
I mean...that's one way to do it! (Also to spare you the Spotify search, the song is "Single Again" by Big Sean.)
Shay Mitchell is a friend of his.
Personally, I LIVE for this friendship, y'all!!! They filmed this ASMR/mukbang/makeup tutorial video back in 2019 and it's a bit ~ chaotic ~, but it's also the best thing ever.
He had some dramz with his neighbor.
A couple months ago, Bretman found out that his neighbor installed cameras that were directly facing Bretman's room. So, in response to that, he posed (fabulously) nude in front of the camera and posted a video about it. An icon, truly.
One of his closest friends is Nikita Dragun.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a better duo?!? They did have some business drama last year. They were supposed to work on a makeup collab together, but it didn't work out on Bretman's end. At first, Nikita took it personally, but admitted that it was a business decision and didn't reflect the status of their personal friendship. Aw.
