The star prefers to keep his private life secret. Allegedly, his mom is a housewife and his dad is a businessman.
Ben joined TikTok when it was still known as musical.ly. In his profile description, he characterizes himself as "Noah Centineo's ugly cousin". Noah is a well-known American actor. These two guys indeed look alike — and that made Ben famous on the platform.

His first videos were very different from what he does today. They seemed to be a bit too basic. Now, Ben's content can be characterized as "comedy skit in the style of surrealism".
Today, Ben has considerable audience on his social media channels:
