From Seventeen

With close to six million followers on TikTok, Quinton Griggs has captured the app’s attention with his reserved yet quiet personality and weightless hair. He gained TikTok fame almost overnight with his first viral video. Since then, he’s continuously gained followers and secured a massive fan base with his positive attitude. Here’s everything you need to know about Quinton Griggs.

He’s a Virgo

He’s 16 and his birthday is on September 8, 2003.

He found out about TikTok when he was in a “dark place”

In a Q&A video, Quinton says he started making TikToks toward the end of summer 2019 after he tore his ACL while running track. “At that time, honestly, I was in a pretty dark place,” he said. “I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t want to go out and do anything because all I knew was sports back then.” Then, he said friend told him about the TikTok and they started making videos together.

He danced on a truck in his first viral TikTok

In that same Q&A video, Quinton says that his first viral TikTok was of him dancing on his truck when he didn’t know the sprinklers would be on. His phone got wet but the video now has close to 900k views.

He’s a Sway Boy

Former Sway Boy Josh Richards initiated Quinton into the Sway House by throwing a cake into his face while they were in Texas in May 2020. Quinton didn’t look too happy about it at first. The cake got in his eye and he asked if it got in his hair. But Quinton ate some of it after, so it all worked out in the end. Now, he’s moving into the Sway Gaming house with Griffin.

His hair is the best part of his TikToks

The way it weightlessly defies gravity is mesmerizing.

And he looks completely different with long hair.

He was called a “distraction” in class

When he started getting big on TikTok, it became disruptive at school. “People were like, taking videos of me in the hallway and stuff like that,” Quinton told Tom Ward. Now, he takes his classes online.

He’s inspired by Jaden Hossler

Quinton went from admiring a Sway Boy to becoming one himself. In his Q&A video, he talks about how the former Sway House member inspired him. He said, “I’ve always looked up to Jaden so it was kind of crazy,” when he mentioned that he and Jaden grew up pretty close to each other.

People tell him that he looks like Jaden too

He admitted people think they look alike in the Jaden section of his Q&A, but you be the judge.

He’s faced backlash on TikTok and Twitter

Quinton posted a photo of himself in a Trump 2020 hat in May 2020.

In response, people called him out on Twitter and he received some backlash.

While Quinton didn’t address the comments directly, he liked a comment that defended him. It said, “Just because someone supports Trump doesn’t mean they don’t believe black lives matter.”

He’s dating Cynthia Parker

The two make adorable TikToks together, and in his interview with Tom Ward in July 2020, he revealed that he and Cynthia are a couple.

He has a few tattoos

It looks like he has a cross outline on his ribs and a few tattoos on his forearm.

His merch is stellar

It has a futuristic vibe and even the website’s background looks like outer space.
