While many YouTubers are trying to extend their careers beyond the vlogs that made them famous originally, few are genuinely successful in doing so. After uploading parody videos for top movies, including, notably, The Hunger Games in 2012, Joey Graceffa initially rose to viral fame.
Since then, he has extended his career into acting, reality TV, and blogging, all while continuing through lifestyle vlogs to update his subscribers.
Joey has continued to dazzle his fans with nearly 10 million subscribers and a successful murder mystery premium series “Escape the Night,” and to keep them wondering what he’s going to do next.
In the summer of 2020, Joey surprised his fans when he shared a big update on his long-term relationship with Daniel Preda.

Is Joey Graceffa Married?
The two-time alum of The Amazing Race is not married, and he revealed his surprising split with his beau of six years back in July of 2020.
In his 2015 debut novel, In Real Life: My Journey to a Pixelated Planet, the Internet star announced that he was in a relationship with Daniel Preda, shortly after Joey came out as gay.
Actually, in 2014, the pair had started dating, and Daniel was soon a regular on Joey’s YouTube platform. Although the two initially introduced themselves as friends on Joey’s channel, fans speculated that they were romantically involved in the comments section.
In a 2016 vlog, entitled “Our Love Story,” Joey and Daniel announced they were dating.
Both are from the greater Boston area, and they chose independently to move to Los Angeles for employment opportunities (Daniel also works as a model). They bonded over their similar experiences, and on Twitter, they originally connected.
Joey and Daniel started dating after meeting for coffee to discuss business. Although some fans were hoping the two would get engaged, Daniel and Joey announced that in a vlog posted in July 2020, they had broken up.
Why Did Joey Graceffa And Daniel Preda Break Up?
The two noted in the heartbreaking video that three months ago, they had already ended their relationship, and that there was still no drama involved in their breakup.
But, because of the coronavirus pandemic lockdowns, they managed to live together after their relationship ended. The two were also persuaded by the quarantine to calm down and understand that they needed to part ways.
“We both know that this is what needs to be done, and that this is what we both need to do to be happy, because I don’t think either of us have been happy for a while,” Joey said through tears in “We Broke Up.”
Despite several months of post-split living together, Daniel moved out on the day the vlog was filmed. The video and the breakup were real, although many fans hoped that it was a joke.

Joey Graceffa, Is He Single? He Just Made A Major Life Change.
Joey did a Q&A a couple of months after the breakup vlog went online, and he discussed whether or not he had started dating again.
He responded to one Q&A, “I’m not on any dating apps, I’m not going to be for a while. It’s just something I’m not interested in, honestly. I’d rather meet someone organically right now. Who knows in the future?”
At the moment, the YouTuber is definitely single, and he made another surprising change recently.
Joey announced in early December 2020 that he was going to live in England for an extended period of time for work. Many who miss Joey and Daniel’s relationship would be delighted to hear that before he moved in, Daniel had a friend decorate Joey’s London apartment.
