Gibi ASMR is an American social media star, singer, actress, and pianist, best known for her YouTube channel of the same name, which has amassed more than 2.5 million subscribers and more than 610 million views. She created it on June 18, 2016, after she found that ASMR done by others helped her feel “blissfully relaxed” and she wanted to support the community and try it out herself. Over time, her channel expanded to include cosplay and roleplay and her original characters such as Lydia, Daisy, Lorelei Mermaid, Mistletole “Missy” The Elf. All of those characters had their own unique vocals, clothing style, food preference, habits and personality, and a carefully planned backstory that at some point includes Gibi’s audience. In addition, she has also cosplayed or impersonated well-known female characters from movies, games, and TV shows.
Gibi ASMR also has a secondary YouTube channel dedicated to gaming and non-ASMR activities such as life updates, behind-the-scenes vlogs, and anything else that isn’t fitting for the main one. She has played video games such as Fortnite Battle Royale, Life is Strange, Detroit: Become Human, The Sims 4, Undertale, Outlast, Kingdom Hearts, and others. She also uploads shorter versions of her live streams from Twitch there, hosts an annual ‘Gibi Cup’ where her audience competes in the video game Overwatch. Gibi also streams anything regarding her passion for singing and playing the piano, and fulfills her audience’s requests. Gibi has also amassed a large fanbase online with more than 300k followers on Instagram and more than 100k followers on Twitter.

Boyfriend / Spouse
Gibi ASMR has dated –
- Ben (2013-Present) – In 2013, she began dating Ben, who was also a student of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, United States. She was in her late freshman year, while he was a junior. When she 1st saw him, he reminded her of Jason Sudeikis, an actor that she loved. Just like Jason, Ben fit the type of guys she likes – “friendly but manly” which meant he had a friendly, innocent face, but a manly, tall, athletic appearance. However, she was very nervous to approach him, and watched him from afar, thinking about how he’s fun but intimidating. Luckily, her friend organized a group dinner at a Naf Naf restaurant and apparently told him that Gibi had a huge crush on him because he wanted to sit closer to her. Unfortunately, as she never tried that type of food before, she didn’t realize she was allergic to sesame inside and had to sprint out to buy anti-allergy medicine, Benadryl. He was concerned with her when she came back, and they quickly bonded over a mutual passion for the Call of Duty video game. Additionally, the 1st thing Ben ever noticed about Gibi, as he later admitted, was her skeleton t-shirt and her skills in beer pong. However, they didn’t end up together immediately because Gibi had a high school boyfriend who went off to college. When she told Ben that she couldn’t date him, he just got up and left. This made her contemplate, and she knew she had to work hard to correct that mistake. She broke up with her boyfriend because she realized Ben was a “gem of a person” and she had to get very persistent in winning him back. They didn’t see each other the whole summer but texted constantly, and when they finally saw each other, he was with other girls, so Gibi had to sit him down, and give him facts on why they were meant to be together, and they finally began dating. Ben also graduated college 2 years earlier than her, in 2015, so she had to drive to the city and visit him often. Finally, during one of her visits, in August 2018, Ben took her to the roof of his house, and his roommates were all suddenly gone. He asked her to marry him while they were both in pajamas/sweatpants, and Gibi genuinely thought he was kidding before she accepted. One detail she couldn’t forget was that the ring box had a light that shone when opened, which impressed her greatly. He later told her that she “ruined” his initial plan, because she had a problem with polycystic ovaries, and had to get an emergency surgery after a cyst burst and created internal bleeding. Luckily, he saved the deposit and rebooked what he had in mind, but was too nervous and didn’t propose. While he was sitting in the car, he realized he couldn’t wake up tomorrow having not proposed, and spontaneously made plans to go with the balcony scenario. Ben also became her manager because she was studying for the Master’s degree in business, and she would already use his name to sign her business e-mails to sound more serious for quite a while. One day, she just thought she’d ask him to accept, as it was his dream job anyway. They also began living together and began fostering an old dog together named Luigi who was 10 years old, partially blind and fully deaf. Gibi also had her bridal shower on June 22, 2019.
