Jorge Garay is a Spanish social media star and dancer, best known for his TikTok account under the name “jeyjeygardi” which has amassed more than 3 million fans and more than 85 million hearts. In the early days, he made short comedy skits, danced, and lip-synced to his favorite songs, and filmed himself doing simple, boring things such as combing his hair and zooming on it from various angles, which seemed to attract a lot of unwarranted attention. For example, one video that depicted him drinking a glass of water has garnered more than 70k hearts. Furthermore, Jorge’s weird obsession with bananas that seemed to have a deeper meaning, and his uncanny resemblance to an American actor Evan Peters attracted an even bigger fanbase to his social media accounts.
Because he rarely spoke, which is not unusual for the type of platform, many of his fans wondered if he could even speak English. After he started dating a fellow social media star and TikToker Benji Krol in 2018, the two began doing a lot of lip-syncing duets using songs of their choice, and Benji started helping him improve his English speaking and written skills. Jorge Garay has also amassed a large fanbase online with more than 1 million followers on Instagram, where he started posting in 2018, and more than 400k followers on Twitter, which he joined in April 2019.
