Early Life

Chelcie Lynn was born on August 9, 1987, in the USA. As of June 2024, she is 36 years old.

In The HoneyDew Podcast with Ryan Sickler, Chelcie narrated her story of growing up, which wasn't rosy. When she was born, her parents were still young and messed up, mostly high on drugs.

She had to start caring for her younger sisters at a very young age. Sometimes, she had to beg their neighbors for food. They went to live with their grandmother after their mom was arrested for drugs.

Chelcie grew up in poverty, but the story has changed today.


Chelcie Lynn is described as an extraordinary internet personality. She started building a fan base in 2014 when her sketches featuring her alter ego, Trailer Trash Tammy, went viral.

Greg Melton, a young college football player from a school two hours from Chelcie's, popped up in her suggestions. She sent him a friend request, and he accepted it. His first message to Chelcie was a pick-up line—a pretty cheesy one, by Greg's admission: "I like your eyes."
