Jaclyn Noel Frank (née Glenn) (born March 25, 1988), is a commentator who discusses topics such as religion, atheism, animal rights, politics, sexuality, and many other issues in a serious yet comical fashion. She is known for being an atheist and skeptic.
Jaclyn Glenn was born in 1988 to Alida Bostick Glenn and Steve Hornbeak. She grew up as a Catholic, and a very devout one at that. She began to question the faith because of the way it treated divorce, specifically her mother, who was barred from receiving communion. Nevertheless, she stuck with it even until her first YouTube videos, where her opinions greatly differentiated from her current views. She is and has been a liberal even while she was Catholic. She became a vegetarian in 2010 and is rumored to currently be a pescatarian (however recent videos on her vlog channel she is seen eating meat). She started her YouTube channel in 2011. Her first videos were mainly about why she adopted the vegetarian diet and reasons why others should as well. She made a video in 2012 where she told her fans that she was an agnostic, and she is now an atheist.
She graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in biomedical sciences. She then went to medical school to become a primary care physician, but dropped out when her YouTube career started to gain success and she found herself unhappy working as a doctor. She was briefly married to a high school teacher (2010-2013) whom she divorced due to him cheating and being unsupportive of her YouTube videos.
After moving to LA in 2013 she dated DaveDays on and off for a total of 2 years (2013-2015), and Toby Turner for under a year (2015).
