Alan Stokes (b. Nov 23, 1996) is an aspiring actor, YouTube content creator, TikTok star, and Instagram influencer notable for the collaborative YouTube channel, Stokes Twins which he runs with his identical twins, Alex Stokes. Born from a Chinese mother and an American father, Alan is popular for his comedy skits, pranks, challenges, and vlogs.
Stokes Twins may be renowned for being a member of AMP World but it's evident from their YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok, they already shot into prominence even before the AMP squad was formed. AMP World is a digital content studio co-founded by popular YouTuber, Brent Rivera which manages other YouTube content creators like Lexi Rivera, Ben Azelart, Pierson Wodzynski, Lexi Hensler, Jeremy Hutchins, Andrew Davila, and Dom Brack.
Alan and his brother grew up in China in the care of their grandfather till the age of eight before they moved to the United States with their parents. The recent departure of their grandfather due to heart congestion last year took a great toll on the twins that they even lost interest to make videos for a few months.

With over 16.9 million subscribers on their collaborative YouTube channel, Stokes Twins, the brothers make an average of $33,890 per post at the time of writing. Not to forget their videos are also sponsored by many popular brands which further help them to garner more wealth.
Stokes Twins launched their YouTube channel, alanalan9635 (later renamed as Stokes Twins) on April 12, 2008, at the age of eight. Initially, they used to post random videos and comedy skits. However, after getting lots of hate and negative comments they decided to take a break for more than six years.
Prior to being members of the AMP squad, Alan and Alex were also the collaborative channel Sunset Park along with other four members like Ethan Bradberry, Coby Persin, Moe Bradberry, Moe Adams, and Andrew Davila. The channel with 110K subscribers and 96 posts, has vlogs on the lives of 7 best friends and their adventures in Los Angeles.
When you have a huge fan following on YouTube, of course, you will expand your fan base in TikTok as well which is one of the most popular social media platforms amongst youngsters. From their TikTok page, Stokes Twins(@stokestwins) which has over 31.1 million followers, they earn around $24,800 per sponsored post.
Alan may have a joint TikTok and YouTube account with his brother, but in the case of Instagram, he has a separate personal account where he shares a glimpse of his personal life. With 5.9 million followers and posting 457+ times on his official Instagram page, Alan Stokes (@imalanstokes), the 6'1" actor earns an average of around $16,000 per post from sponsorships and endorsements.
His income is not only limited to social media, as he gets a fair share from his merchandise Double Trouble Shop which sells high-quality hoodies, sweatpants, t-shirts, and so on. His acting career is not so impressive as he only managed to get roles in only two series like 'Brobot' and 'Afterschooled'.
Meanwhile, if you have been following the AMP World then you surely are aware of the cold war going on in the group. From Dom Brack cheating on his girlfriend, Sofie Dossi to Lexi Hensler officially leaving the AMP World to start her solo career, and influencer-singer Liv Swearingen joining the group, there has always been drama in the squad.
And what tops the list in the drama is that Stokes Twins and Caleb Burton have been publicly showing their hatred towards the AMP squad, more especially Brent. They dished their former friends for copying their video ideas, and doing fake challenges and also revealed that Brent and his friends give fake money as a reward in their video.
While it's still unknownst to the fans why Stokes Twins left the group, it is clear that they have no intention of joining the group again as they did in the past. While some fans showed their full support to the Stokes Twins for showing the true color of the AMP squad, others were not so happy and even commented that they shouldn't drag their problems to the internet for the sake of their friendship of many years.
