After Netflix’s ‘The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals’ dropped on the platform, Megan Batoon’s popularity rose. Now, she is known for her charming personality, besides her reputation as a talented content creator. Besides having more than one million followers on YouTube, she is also a choreographer, having previously featured in movies and TV shows like ‘Step Up Revolution’ and ‘World of Dance.’
From teaching dance to reviewing vacation rentals, this multi-talented YouTuber cum television host has wowed audiences worldwide. Known to some as the “Millennial Martha Stewart,” her strongest quality is her resourcefulness that allows her limitless creative freedom despite shooting videos inside the four walls of her house. Megan is very expressive when it comes to her work and art, but beyond the lens of entertainment, fans don’t know much about where she comes from. If you’re a fan wondering about the same, we’ve got you covered!

She attended a graphic design school when she was younger, but her interests always revolved around content creation and dance. Megan is quite attached to her Filipino roots and loves ethnic food there especially, chicken Adobo, Pancit, and Lumpia. She always makes sure her Filipino fan base feels heard and acknowledged by her.

Rumor had it that Megan’s roommate Tony, during the filming of ‘The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals,’ was romantically involved with her. But that possibility was later thrown out the window. In addition, she has also allegedly been linked with Filipino actor John Lloyd Cruz and Andrew Siwicki, another content creator.
