Trevor Bell is a social media sensation - his popularity is growing at rapid rates and it’s no wonder that people are connecting with his authentic story and relatable challenges. However, Trevor wasn't always the viral sensation and fitness model we see working with brands like Nike, Adidas, and Coca-Cola today. In 2016, during Trevor’s final semester at Columbia University, he made the decision to continue his football career in the NFL despite multiple job offers following his graduation.
Trevor knew this was a risky decision, sharing, “I was against all odds: undersized, without exposure, and with a mediocre collegiate career. In the end, these obstacles didn’t matter to me because I believed in myself, and knew I was exceptionally athletic.” Despite his optimism, Trevor did not make the cut at the JETS tryouts and did not receive callbacks during the draft.
NOW WHAT? Trevor quickly found himself with an Ivy League degree, debt, heartbreak and no job prospects. Fast-forwarding a few months into the New York initiation process, he found himself working 75+ hours a week at jobs he was not passionate about, but grateful to have.
In need of change, Trevor began betting on himself, sharing his successes and failures on social media alongside his inspiring content and fitness routines. Despite the discouragement and name-calling from peers, prior teammates, friends and even family, he stuck with it. His positive mindset has been a magnet to an audience of fans that are excited to support him on his journey to the top.
Now, we see the results of persistence, dedication, and talent paying off in waves as Trevor continues to pursue his passion in fitness, modeling and acting. His verified TikTok platform exploded with millions of followers and his Instagram following is aggressively engaged. Trevor has appeared in international ads for Nike, Adidas, Shea Moisture, Coca-Cola, and more and he's currently in production for a new Netflix film about the popular world of Cosplay. His eyes are on some pretty big goals and from the history of his story so far, they are only a few more steps away from his reality.
