After high school, Thompson started building his own real estate business before exploring social media. When he did, he came across Kipkay’s YouTube channel, where he found some useful videos. Thompson was inspired by Kipkay’s channel and wanted to do something similar.

Controversies

Grant Thompson was charged by the local police department for possessing explosives on two different occasions. Someone had filed a complaint through ‘Facebook Messenger,’ which had stated that Thompson was exploding an ice bomb.

When confronted by the cops, Thompson explained that he is a YouTuber, and posts science experiments on his channel.

Thompson was not happy with the complaint as he claimed that the explosion was controlled. He expressed his disappointment on his social media pages by saying that the complaint had made him look like an irresponsible YouTuber, who goes about exploding things.

On another occasion, he was once again charged for causing an explosion. The explosion was so strong that firefighters from the nearby station heard it. Thompson told the cops that his friend from Ontario, Canada, had brought a bag of explosive powder, which he thought was extracted from deconstructed firework. After a series of controlled explosions, Thompson and his friend Timothy Burgess ignited a large pile of the explosive powder. The explosion caused minor injuries to his friend, who too, was charged for possessing explosives.

Personal Life

Grant Thompson resides in South Jordan, Utah, US. He is married and enjoys spending time with his three kids. His family is very important to Thompson as he often says that family is more important than his career.

He loves to experiment, which is his core personality. Not surprisingly, he had tried his hands at many jobs before becoming a YouTube star. He has piloted aircrafts and has auditioned for reality TV shows as well.

Thompson is often persistent with his experiments. For one of his videos titled ‘Fight Club Soap,’ he had to shoot for over a period of four to five months. Despite facing many challenges while shooting the video, he managed to complete it, which tells a thing or two about his amazing will power.
