What happened to Vitaly Zdorovetski?
Vitaly Zdorovetskiy (also known as VitalyzdTv) is a Russian-American content creator who mainly makes prank videos. His YouTube grind over the years has earned him a net worth of $7 million. His stunts got him in trouble with the law on multiple occasions, so fans are asking what happened to him.
On March 8, 1992, Zdorovetskiy was born in Murmansk, Russia. Elena Vulitsky, a former model, had to raise him as a single mother. He spent part of his childhood in Odessa, Ukraine, but later moved to Boca Raton, Florida.
Park Vista Community High School was his alma mater. Vitaly tried to become a professional skateboarder at a young age but was forced to give up due to injuries. He got his first job at age 15, working as a garbage collector.
His second job was as a sign maker dressed by Uncle Sam. After that, he became a waiter at a restaurant in Miami. In 2011, Zdorovetskiy took part in a pornographic scene for an adult entertainment company shortly after turning 18.
After realizing he wasn’t for X-rated videos, he experimented with less intimidating films. He started making joke videos. His first viral YouTube video was a prank in which he dressed up as a zombie and surprised random people in Miami in 2012.
Over time, his pranks became more and more extreme. Natural Born Pranksters, a film Zdorovetskiy starred in, was officially purchased the international distribution rights by Lionsgate in November 2015.
As of this writing, his YouTube channel has 10 million subscribers, even after going on hiatus for a year due to a skydiving accident. He broke his neck and back, but didn’t need surgery and is now back to posting content regularly.
Vitaly Zdorovetskiy is known to have an attention-seeking attitude. This may be the reason for his success on YouTube, but it is also the cause of his many arrests. He was first arrested in 2014 for trespassing on the pitch at the 2014 FIFA World Cup final.
After mounting the Hollywood sign in 2016, he was arrested again. That same year, in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, he was arrested for streaks. He was jailed again for storming the field in Game 5 of MLB’s 2017 World Series.
After climbing the pyramids of Giza in January 2020, he was incarcerated for five days in an Egyptian prison. His last, and probably worst, custody was for violently attacking a jogger in Miami Beach in April 2020. After posting $7,500 bail, he was released.
After all the trouble, Vitaly is back online. He even has an upcoming boxing match against fellow prankster Kristen Hanby. He promises a knockout from the first minute of his boxing debut, which will air on March 5, 2022.
Aside from his future content plans, there are no other updates on his personal life. Although Kinsey Wolanski, an influencer, was in a relationship with him. They used to collaborate on video projects, but they are no longer together.
