He has openly talked about how his friends and others body-shamed him which used to hamper his confidence. However, even after facing all these, he has not let these comments affect his personality and learned to appreciate his body.

Alex and Alan Stokes Plead Guilty for Two Fake Robberies Made for Just Videos

Stokes Twins are known for their pranks and comedy videos. However, they once got into a serious problem and were even sentenced to jail due to their prank. The twins were charged with a felony count of false imprisonment affected by violence, menace, fraud, or swatting with the fake robbery prank video.

In the video, the pair pretended to be robbers dressed in all black, wearing ski makes and carrying duffle bags full of cash before getting into the uber. The Uber driver who was unaware of the plan refused them which was seen by bystanders, one of whom complained to the police.

The cops then issued a warning to the Stokes and let them go, but they repeated the stunt four hours later at the University of California and were arrested again. Initially, they were charged with a felony count of false imprisonment meaning they had to serve five years in prison.

However, in exchange for their guilty plea, the judge sentenced the twins to 160 hours of community service, one-year probation, and was ordered to pay restitution. The judge also warned them to stop making videos that mimic criminal behavior.

The Stokes Twins Were Once Homeless and Even Worked 100 Hours a Week

Like everyone else, the Stokes Twins had their own share of struggles before they became renowned. After finishing high school, Alan and Alex Stokes decided to take a huge risk and move to Los Angeles. However, their life did not go as planned as they became homeless; sleeping in a car and showering in a gym.

They sometimes lived in Ben Azelart and their friend's house as they could not afford a house at that time. In order to pay bills, they even worked more than 100 hours a week but never missed uploading videos on their YouTube channel.

Even after going through so many miseries and struggles, not once did they show their sorrow and instead always made people laugh with their pranks and comedy skits. What's more, their YouTube channel was even demonetized for a year and a half until July 2021 due to pleading for fake robbery.

The doctor also revealed that if he had waited any longer to find the operation, he could have developed an infection that could have taken his life. After the surgery, Alex took a break for a few months from YouTube which made some people assume that he died during the surgery.

Who Is Alex Stokes's Girlfriend?

Due to his cheerful personality and good looks, one might not believe Alex Stokes to be single. But he himself has claimed many times that he is single and desperately searching for his soulmate. The social media influencer once jokingly said that his crushes are all attracted to his twin more than him.

While fans love to pair him with Lexi Rivera or Lexi Hensler, Alex has never talked about his feelings for these beauties. Besides, the 6'1" is known for keeping his personal life very secretive, unlike his twin. So fans might have to wait if he ever shares about his love life.
