Independence teaches us to be strong and find a way on our own.
Well, a person, who has proved the statement right is American television star Gus Smyrnios. Gus is famously known to be the cast member in the MTV reality series Floribama Shore. He also has a massive fanbase on his Instagram account.
But before establishing himself as a celebrity, Gus struggled alone to be successful. He was homeless at the age of seventeen and was forced to fend himself.
Gus Smyrnios's Bio: Journey From Being Alone To Star
Born in 1995 in Tallahassee, Gus celebrates his birthday every 20th March and lives at the age of 23.
The Florida native was raised by a blue-collar family; his dad was a state trooper and painted houses. Gus grew up painting with his father. Not only that, but he also laid floors, did roofing, and worked on a farm for about three years.
However, at the age of 17, Gus was homeless. He had to couch surf at friends' houses and stay away from his family that included his sisters and brother.
Initially, Gus never wanted to get into modeling or acting. However, when he was at the age of 19, he used to talk with a girl, who was into modeling. One day, Gus went with the girl in her set, and her agent got impressed by his looks. He immediately signed Gus to his agency.
After that, Gus signed with around eight different agencies in Florida within two weeks. Then, a major book publishing company landed in his profile, and his career kicked off from there.
As a model, Gus featured on the cover of several romance novels and modeled for several commercial brands.
He also became a book cover model for ‘Luc’ by Jennifer L. Armentrout; the book probably will be released in 2018. Apart from this, he featured in several books, and also for Armani fragrance.
Gus debuted as an actor from the 2017 MTV series Floribama Shore. After appearing on the series, he started getting massive recognition in the media.
Being a model and TV personality, Gus must have pocketed a healthy amount of money from his profession. However, his salary and net worth are still confined to the media.

Dating or Single?
A graduate from the Tallahassee Community College, Gus probably has a lot of girls going crazy over his dashing looks and height.
However, no one seems to have impressed the star to date as his dating status appears to be vacant. He has not been spotted or linked with any women that can be given his girlfriend tag.
He has also not shed any hints on his dating affair via his social media posts. So, it looks like Gus is probably single.
Nevertheless, in Season 1 of American reality series, Floribama Shore in 2017, Gus tried to date one of his roommates, Nilsa Prowant. He even asked her out on a date, but, Nilsa denied his offer.
She was interested in her other roommate, Jeremiah. Nilsa even slapped Gus in his face for coming close to her. After that, Gus got over Nilsa and had since moved on, hooking up with other girls.
However, in Season 2 that is running in 2018, things have gone unexpectedly. Gus and Nilsa are both single again, and it appears as Nilsa is trying to hook up with Gus as she kissed Gus surprisingly in a cab.

When it comes to Gus and Nilsa’s social media pages, there have been no hints that the two are in a relationship. It might be because they want to keep their affair under the wraps or not to spoil the season’s plotline.
Well, it seems that the only way to know about their dating status is to wait for some time and see what the new episodes welcome.
