Where are they Now: Former YouTube Couple Mark Miller & Ethan Hethcote

Shawn Laib READ TIME: 4 MIN.

When it comes to gay trailblazers during the social media age, not many couples made a statement like Ethan Hethcote and Mark Miller. The handsome, thoughtful couple were at the top of the LGBTQ+ totem pole on YouTube in the 2010s. Their videos influenced social media stars of today, but that doesn't mean Miller and Hethcote have given up on sharing their lives.

Despite being broken up for quite a few years, the duo pivoted to new mediums to stay relevant. Hethcote has especially found success modeling on OnlyFans, while Miller still makes YouTube videos. Let's look at how these sexy studs are doing in 2024!

Miller and Hethcote talk about their relationship in this classic video from nearly a decade ago. Fans from back in the day all the way to the present commented below the interview how vital Miller and Hethcote's representation was to them in a time before mainstream queer media of the 2020s. One person commended Miller for not taking the video down just because he and Hethcote are no longer together.

This shows Miller understands the vitality of their story within the community. Many LGBTQ+ folks today don't realize how much progress has been made in such a short amount of time. Miller and Hethcote were an ultra-famous gay couple on YouTube at a time when gay influencers were still in the minority. With almost one million views on the video, the ex-couple should be proud of the effect they've had on the community.

Miller takes up some of his social media presence today by showing his adorable dog to the millions of fans on Instagram. His dog had a knee procedure (ACL surgery) during the summer of 2023. While human athletes commonly undergo this operation, Miller's pup shows that our pets often have to endure the same struggles. It's beautiful to see Miller's protective spirit and shining smile in these pictures!

Hethcote has gone more of the route of OnlyFans and modeling since breaking up with Miller. In this steamy preview video, Hethcote and new beau, Stevie Miller, take playing with basket balls a little more literally than expected! Unlike many content creators who do modeling, Hethcote rewards his followers with well thought out scenes and interesting scenarios instead of basic, bland photos or selfies.
