As the co-founder and leader of YouTube prank group NELK, Kyle Forgeard is a content creator and online personality who’s been steadily rising since 2015. He is incorporated with the brand Full Send Entertainment. As of 2022, Forgeard has a net worth of $1.5 million.
Kyle is a Canadian born and raised in Mississauga, Ontario. His birthday is July 12, 1994. He has a sister named Chantal, and their parents are Rick and Gayle.
He went to Our Lady of Mount Carmel Secondary School and graduated there. After that, he went to Ryerson University for higher education. He studied filmmaking. During this time, he created NELK with his twin friends, Marko and Niko Martinovic.
The aspiring creator shared a video of himself serenading ladies in the university lecture halls while still a student. He eventually dropped out to focus solely on his YouTube pursuits.
NELK was formed in 2010. From the start, they were all about pranks and vlogs. They’re centered on collegiate culture in North America. They make videos of the group’s party lifestyle and their classic stunts.
The channel’s growth was slow at first. It wasn’t until five years after its creation that they gained real traction. Forgeard became popular after sharing a video in which he pranks cops by claiming they have coke in his vehicle.
After this, they continued doing what they set out from the beginning but now with a bigger following. Now, NELK has 7.25 million people subscribed to its content.
The Nelk boys are also known for popularizing the colloquial phrase “Full Send,” which also became the name of their entertainment brand. Forgeard gave the definition of the slang, which essentially means, whatever activity you perform, give it your best.
Forgeard and his buddies are the owners of the Full Send clothing line. It became a hit when they launched limited-edition Supreme-style drops. They also own the Happy Dad hard seltzer company.
As one of the main faces of NELK and Full Send Entertainment, Kyle regularly co-hosts the Full Send Podcast. Every session has a special guest. Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and other notable individuals have been invited to appear on the show.
Kyle and his colleagues make about $100,000 each month from their YouTube work that receives around seven million views every week. However, their channel doesn’t have a good relationship with YouTube, which has demonetized several of their videos.
Fortunately, Forgeard and his team have built a successful direct-to-consumer enterprise. This has been enough for Forgeard to be included in the Forbes 30 under 30, a list of bright young minds making an impact on the economy.
Still, this doesn’t make Kyle the richest Nelk boy. That would be Stephen Deleonardis, better known online as SteveWillDoIt, who has a separate booming YouTube channel.
The YouTuber maintains a high level of privacy in his personal life. Rumors say that Forgeard is single at the moment. Another rumor about him is having veneers after a podcast with Mike Tyson. But this was never confirmed.
