She wrote and directed a web miniseries.

Co-starring Benedict Cua, Kristel starred in, wrote, and directed an online series called "Luv Express," which is inspired by one of her earlier YouTube videos called "U-Belt UV." The video, starring Benedict and Kristel, is a short skit about two students sharing kilig moments during a ride in a UV Express.

The video and their chemistry together received a positive response from the audience that they decided to create a spin-off from it. All 12 episodes of the "Luv Express" are now up on the One Click TV YouTube channel in case you want to check it out! The series finale just dropped on January 15, 2021 so it's not yet too late to catch up.   

Fans love her friendship with "Big Boss."

You might have seen a certain "Big Boss" several times on Kristel's YouTube and social media channels. Big Boss, aka Yohan Kim, is actually the CEO of Korean skincare brand Face Republic and they met in 2018 when Kristel, among other influencers, got invited to a trip to South Korea to promote and check out the brand.


Fans loved their chemistry so much and have asked for more content from the two. In 2020, they shared a highly requested song cover of a Crash Landing On You OST. They're also supportive of each other's careers, with Yohan attending Kristel's movie premieres and Kristel promoting and supporting Yohan's business endeavors.

She has two YouTube channels.

In case you didn't know, Kristel actually has two separate YouTube channels. One is her official channel "Kristel Fulgar" where she posts her song covers and other music-related videos. The other is the channel "KrisTells Vlogs" where she posts her travel escapades and other personal, unfiltered ganap in life. She has 1.24 million subscribers in her first channel and almost 2 million subscribers in her second!

She was able to buy her second car using her YT earnings.

Speaking of her flourishing YouTube career, Kristel was able to invest her YouTube earnings into building her new house. Aside from that, she was also able to buy her second car, which she shared on social media. Kristel also showed her gratitude towards every subscriber she's had on her channels for being part of the reason she received so many blessings in life. "Bawat subscriber ko at bawat nanonood ng mga videos ko ay part ng success ng career ko. Maraming maraming salamat sa inyo. Isa kayo sa mga nagpapatatag sa akin," Kristel shares.
