Suspiciously Good Videos Of Hannah Lee Duggan Sewing

In these very last days of my life, living in Dickinson, I had become resigned to the fact that I would likely experience nothing but the Jack-O’-Lantern women of North Dakota for the remainder of the time that I have left.  Hideous, menacing, monsters.

I am trying to withdraw from, ignore, and pay no attention to the ugliness that actually surrounds me, and create my own imaginary World, probably like people who are incarcerated for life in prison, with no hope of ever getting out.  The same as living in Dickinson, North Dakota.

On the internet, sometimes I look at the website Chaturbate.com, which shows hundreds of live nude cam models.  I look at the screenshot of what each model is doing, and I pick the one that seems interesting or attractive.  Some of the most interesting models, they don’t undress at all, they are entertaining enough to be good company, one of them is named “Nura” a.k.a. 8a8y’s  https://chaturbate.com/8a8y/ .

But Nura is not always on, and she never takes all of her clothes off.  For me, the model which takes her clothes off, and shows what she looks like all over, without fake acting or being difficult, is JennyCutey  https://chaturbate.com/jennycutey/ .  JennyCutey never complains or acts difficult, she has a very easy-going pleasant disposition.

But sometimes neither Nura nor JennyCutey is on, so what now?  Most of the other Chaturbate models have chosen to put on some kind of act, rather than be themselves, and their poor, unconvincing acting, comes across as phony, fake, and irritating.

Instead, I have started watching Hannah Lee Duggan sewing videos.  The reason why, is that Hannah is attractive, she has a likable disposition, she shows intelligence, creativity, and ingenuity, the clothes that she makes turn out well, and she models these clothes:

I enjoy watching Hannah so much, the steps that she takes to make her own clothes, and her clothes turn out so well with her modelling them, that I can easily watch the entire twenty minute sewing video.

The first time that I had watched a Hannah Lee Duggan sewing video, I thought that she was possibly an introverted hillbilly nut-case, with the denim overalls that she was wearing, her large eyeglasses, and the fact that she was making clothes out of curtains that she had bought at a thrift store.  I read or saw that she lived in Minnesota, and I thought, that figures.

I would have been much happier if I had continued to believe that she was an introverted, nutty, country mouse, that way in my mind I would have had a chance of tricking her, taking advantage of her, or seducing her, but no such luck.

Here is a short biography that she gives of herself https://www.hannahleeduggan.com/about-me

“I’m currently living in a van.

If you couldn’t tell by that, I’m a bit of a nomad. To get a feel for who I am and how I got here this is a spark-notes, wild ride of a time that has been my life up to now;

When I turned 18 in 2012, I hopped on a cruise ship working as a stewardess, where I got to sail around the New England Islands, the Hudson River, and the Florida Coast. 95 hour work weeks, dead tired all the time, and probably have back aches that will last the rest of my life from this, but met some great people and learned a lot about working hard and still somehow finding the time to enjoy where you are.

I then moved to Oakland, CA (for literally no reason, other than I had a friend that had space for a roommate on the fold out couch.) Worked a bit, played a bit. Made a day trip to Los Angeles and decided to move there after six months of living in Northern California.

Lived in downtown LA (two blocks from Skid Row, (3/10 only recommend if you’re looking for character growth or are as broke as I was) where I picked up modeling jobs and did background acting (catch me in Grey’s Anatomy S12:E4 for about a millisecond). Managed to find the time – and money?? to get to Europe and travel around for a month (but apparently not enough for a diff apartment). Started in Paris, met a friend in a small town 20 miles outside of Rome, hitchhiked with some Canadian guys up through Venice, and got dropped in Zurich – which is increDIBLY expensive by the way – then slept on a friend’s dorm room floor for a week in England before returning to Paris, coming down with a 103F fever, and heading back to LA with $6 in my bank account.

When I could no longer afford LA (who can?) I moved home and enrolled at the University of Minnesota, going in and out every other semester, traveling, working and paying off debts in between classes. Still, to this day my academic advisor doesn’t know what to do with me.

Between semesters (and sometimes mid-semester) I traveled to Hawaii, road tripped from New York to LA, spent two weeks in Costa Rica, danced around Colombia, and last minute tripped to Ireland and London. Most of these trips were spent in hostels/alone/with barely any money.

Summer of 2017 I was sent to Hong Kong on a three month modeling contract. I knew no-one, lived in a flat the size of a bread box, and sweat my butt off in the humidity. The first week I spent alone and miserable, missing home like crazy. By the end of the second week I’d met a million new people, been to clubs until 7am, spent the day on a yacht and found some gorgeous waterfall hikes. By the end of the three months I didn’t want to leave, I’d met so many good friends, and had so many incredible experiences. Hong Kong felt like home.

By January 3rd, 2018 I was on my way back to Hong Kong, this time with my sister in tow. We spent about a week there, getting into all sorts of mischief, before heading to Sri Lanka for a little under a month, and then to Egypt, where we met some really lovely people and went diving in the Red Sea.

Got back from the trip itching to leave again, this time with no ties to Minnesota, where it’s so easy to fall into a comfort zone with family and friends and familiar places.

April 26, 2018, after hours and days scrolling Craigslist, I drove an hour out of the cities, to Litchfield, MN to buy my 2001 Ford Econoline Van. I sold most of my things, and put the rest in storage, meanwhile working and sweating and cursing at this van as I hacked my way through gutting it, insulating it, putting walls up, and trying to figure out how to get electric working.

So here I am now, living in a van, and answering everyone’s questions about where I go to the bathroom or take a shower, you know, the normal questions.”

I am less happy knowing the truth about who she actually is.  But I still do not think that I have the complete picture.  Because of what I have seen in some of her other YouTube videos that she makes, I am suspicious, there is something else going on that I don’t know.  I will try to find out.

Update 12/14/20:  A couple of women left comments to this article, “Teresa” and “Emma”, expressing some of the same suspicions that I had, that there was more going on with Hannah than she was letting on.

Myself, I was questioning how Hannah could afford the very upscale loft apartment that she was living in, travel the country in her van, make videos every day of what she was doing, and not have a regular job.  I was marveling at her apartment, it had its own private very large 3rd floor outdoor deck overlooking a lake.

Then, when Hannah announced in October/November of 2020 that she had bought a 15 acre property with two houses on it, I couldn’t understand how she was able to do this, for a couple of reasons.  One, she doesn’t have a regular job, would a bank really give her a mortgage loan?  Two, the two houses on the property were unfinished, they didn’t have an indoor toilet, and they only had wood-stove heating, would a bank give a mortgage loan on this, they always require a home inspection beforehand?

I wanted to learn more about Hannah, what was her background, especially because the two women commentors got me thinking about it.  Today, I unfortunately found out.

One thing that I truly hate, is single young women YouTubers making videos about traveling the World, building a home, or buying and fixing up a home, all on their own, with no regular job.  This makes all of the viewers who work 40 hours per week or more at a job that is tiring, difficult, dangerous, or unpleasant, feel like they are a failure, because not only do they work all week, they don’t ever get to travel, or buy a home.

Today, I found out that the very upscale loft apartment that Hannah had been living in, it was on the upper floor of a very large, very nice home, owned by her mother and stepfather.  I thought that Hannah was struggling and hustling to pay the rent on this loft apartment, but it’s different if your mother and stepfather own the house, and live there.  The county property tax records show that her mother and stepfather are the owners.

Also, the first information that I found about Hannah’s 15 acres and two homes, it showed that Hannah’s mother’s name was attached to this property since January of 2019, over 1-1/2 years before Hannah purchased it.  The up-to-date property tax records for this county show that Hannah and her mother are currently recorded as co-owners of this property.

WTF, is Hannah trying to make other people feel bad, because they can’t do the things that she does, because they can’t afford to, and can’t understand how she does it?  Is one of the reasons why Hannah could afford to go traveling in her van and elsewhere, was because she was living in her mother’s house?  Was Hannah able to buy her 15 acre property  because her mother already owned it, or became co-owners with Hannah because both their names are listed as owners?

  1. The video and photo (instagram) productions and the website design look rather too slick for a penniless wanderer. And who holds the camera when she is doing body gyrations on the beach and elsewhere? Probably her affluent boy friend. They probably both live in an expensive apartment and this is a sideline for amusement.

    1. Teresa,

      Wow, I am surprised that anyone else would know what I was talking about. I liked Hannah more when I thought that she was some silly, goofy girl who made clothes from bed sheets and curtains that she got from thrift stores.

      When I read her “About Me” biography where she talked about travelling throughout Europe and South America with “no money”, that always sets off red flags for me. The young people in Dickinson, ND would know better than to travel to Bismarck, ND one hundred miles to the east with “no money”, it wouldn’t turn out well, people would be angry with them, and it wouldn’t be pleasant for them.

      Now that I think about it, she wrote that between semesters going to school in Minnesota, and sometimes even mid-semester, she would travel to Europe or Hawaii. This doesn’t make any sense at all. Even when I went to a very affluent small college in Virginia, that wasn’t that difficult academically, the millionaire kids weren’t going to Europe or Hawaii mid-semester.

      In her most recent video that shows what she does when she gets up in the morning, after a few minutes of seeing the inside of her apartment, I was wondering what kind of apartment this was. At first I thought that it was a small, attic loft apartment in an old farm house. When I saw more about how the kitchen, bathroom, living room, and bedroom were laid out, just the lay-out, I could tell that this was a very expensive renovation. Then when you start looking at the flooring, windows, and walls, this was a no-expense-spared renovation.

      Then, when Hannah showed that this apartment had it’s own 30 ft x 30 ft third-floor outdoor deck with bar seating, with an unobstructed view of a large lake, this has got to be about a $600K -$1 million downtown property in a tourist/resort area.

      To put this into perspective, I have met many husbands and wives who started out from very poor humble beginnings, where they both worked very hard for twenty years before they became millionaires when they were in their late forties, continued to grow their wealth, and built new homes, vacation homes, and restored old homes. These millionaires, their college student children, and their adult children, never did live in an apartment like this one Hannah was living in, and she is supposed to be poor.

      1. You’re welcome. I would guess the biography is invented, like a draft for a novel in a creative writing course. I liked the cruise ship bit especially, aren’t they like rabbit colonies?

        Many people dream of becoming successful novelists and making the NY Times bestseller lists, or famous film producers. Channels like hers are a substitute. She might have gone to acting school.

        If you haven’t come across the guy below, I can recommend him as having a whole website dedicated to deconstruction of media narratives. It might help you to pass the time educationally. He is also an excellent painter and you can check out his work there:

      2. Teresa,

        At first I thought that your suggestion that Hannah’s biography might be fictitious, was unlikely. I thought that she probably does have wealthy parents that subsidize everything that she does, her apartment, her travel, her van, her van build, her van repair, her van insurance, her health insurance, etc. But maybe she really is poor, and she made up most of her travel adventure stories.

        On the one hand, I could see her being paid to model, but then again, maybe not. In a way she acts like she is from Minnesota, but other times not at all. I don’t know what is going on exactly.

    2. My 2 cents. I am a 73 year old woman who has rheumatoid arthritis which limits my ability to be as physically active as I once was.
      I love watching Hannah. She is obviously very intelligent, beautiful and able to do anything she sets her mind to. I have no idea how she bankrolls all that she does. Clearly she’s modeled; she’s an artist; she sings beautifully and is extremely clever at figuring things out. So, however she’s put together the parts of her life to share with us is extremely welcome to me. Perhaps for a few minutes I forget my limitations and live vicariously through Hannah and become immersed in whatever she’s showing us of her life.
      So who cares, really? If she wrote a book we’d read it because, let’s face it, she’s an extremely interesting character.
      Thank you Hannah, I’m so glad I came across your channel!

      1. June Fisher,

        To you, Hannah’s videos are probably harmless entertainment. For young people Hannah’s age, Hannah’s YouTube videos could be harmful for several different reasons. If a teenage girl or a girl Hannah’s age took what Hannah is doing in her YouTube videos as real-life truth, they might plan on not having a job or a career and travelling around the U.S. in a van.

        I have been around many real-life people who live in their vehicle, and it is a very hard, stressful, and dangerous life: First of all they are generally poor people to begin with; when they desperately need a job, they can’t get hired because they don’t have an address; they can’t get a P.O. Box because they don’t have an address; they can’t get a Library Card because they don’t have an address; the Police get called on them whenever they try to park at night to sleep; the Police remember their vehicle and scrutinize everything they do; local people recognize their vehicle and scrutinize everything they do; an effort is made to run them out of town; if their vehicle gets towed it’s $200 tow fee plus $40 that day and every subsequent day which they can not afford and lose their vehicle.

        Traveling around the U.S. in a van is only fun if you have a wealthy family member who is always willing to bail you out when you are in trouble. For that matter, traveling to Mexico or overseas for an adventure is only fun if you have a family member who is always available and willing to bail you out if you get into trouble.

        I hope that you see my point. Young people need to realize the difference between what is reality, and what is make-believe. If they have any opportunity to receive higher education, they need to take that opportunity and make the most of it. If a young person isn’t planning on going to college, they need to learn a trade or a skill that is in demand, and become employed as soon as possible. For young people who are not from a wealthy family, they are going to have to take the initiative to work at getting higher education, a trade, or skill, not screw around, or they will always be a poor pay-check-to-pay-check, low-wage worker, and stuck there for the rest of their life.

      2. Hello. Thanks for sharing your opinion. Your 1st remark about reality struck me. It’s such a controversial topic. I see Hannah’s life as very real, more real than almost anyone I know who is not living as a naturalist dealing with the reality of the elements, sustenance and safety. Coming of age in the 60’s many of us were traveling, getting arrested, in danger and some never really evolved into amounting to much materially. Some are suffering financially and have little support other than gov’t assistance now. That happened. I chose another path. As you suggested, I learned a trade; started a small business; furthered my education to the master’s level; changed careers; climbed the corporate ladder attaining a title and six figure income with enviable benefits and retired with a lovely pension. However, while I was doing all of that, I don’t think I was real. My head was full of ambition and drive but I neglected to see who I really was. We all need to follow or be led along our path. We need to pay attention. I missed a lot but I was living in Vermont so being surrounded by that beauty I couldn’t really ignore it. A lot of times, though, I didn’t take it in, feel it, as I could have. Perhaps this is me looking back and wishing I’d done things differently. Don’t most of us? However, while watching more of Hannah’s videos and Q&A’s, it’s obvious she’s not a trust fund kid who just asks for money to support her life. She does have a family whom she loves and I’m sure would do all they could to help if she were in trouble. She mentions her mom and shares her sister from time to time so it’s not like she’s out there all alone unless she really wants to be, which it seems she does. Perhaps her mother did as she is or wanted to and supports her exploration of the world and herself. I do see your point about safety. If I were Hannah living as she is, I’d have a gun:) At 27, she has so much time to put down roots if something speaks to her in that way. As she says, she doesn’t think about doing that, it doesn’t feel right. Who knows what time will bring. Given her artistic nature it’s not unusual for her to be drawn to her lifestyle, it’s within her. I’m sure other not-so-talented and smart kids might try to do what she’s doing. They will fail and hopefully not be hurt terribly by it. We all fail. We all get hurt. Hopefully we all grow and continue to. Again, my 2 cents. June

      4. In reply to Tom,

        Tom, thank you for your comment. I was becoming more and more irritated with Hannah Lee Duggan.

        When Hannah’s sister came over to Hannah’s house with a Land Rover Defender, it was annoying and made me angry for several reasons.

        I only want to have to explain this one time about Land Rover/Range Rover: Most of the people in the U.S. have seen a few 1st generation “Range Rovers” that were produced from 1969-1996, that were sold all over Europe and the U.S. They had a high initial price, very high repair/maintenance costs, and not very good reliability in the U.S. “Range Rover” continued to produce and import this vehicle to the U.S. with model updates up until the present time.

        For the Yuppies, “Land Rover” made a slightly less expensive “Land Rover Discovery” from 1989 to the present, for sale in Europe and the U.S. The “Land Rover Discovery” had a high initial price, high repair/maintenance costs, and not very good reliability.

        Something completely different, is the “Land Rover Defender”. The “Land Rover Defender” had a very, very high initial cost, but very good reliability. The “Land Rover Defender” is probably the only Land Rover/Range Rover with good reliability, but it was very, very expensive. It was for national/state military use, national/state expeditions, or for very wealthy land owners in places like Africa, Australia, or the Middle East.

        Since 1997, the “Land Rover Defender” was not imported into the U.S. Even pre-1997 “Land Rover Defenders” in the U.S. often sell for over $100,000. Please, please click this link to see how much “Land Rover Defenders” cost https://www.dupontregistry.com/autos/results/land–rover/defender (look at all eight pages of vehicles)

        Why am I irritated, annoyed, and angry that Hannah’s younger sister has a “Land Rover Defender” and Hannah says that she is going to get one too? Because, most young people with a job can not afford a pre-1997 vehicle that costs over $100K, but Hannah and her sister who are both young and don’t appear to have jobs can each buy one of these vehicles on a whim. It’s obnoxious.

        If Hannah wanted a four-wheel-drive off-road vehicle for fun and making YouTube videos, and she actually had her YouTube viewers’ interests in mind, for less than $8,000 she could get a reliable, good-condition used Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Ford Bronco, Dodge Ram Wagon, Toyota Landcruiser, Toyota 4Runner, Toyota FJ, Nissan XTerra, Dodge Ram truck 1500/2500, or Ford truck F150/F250.

        I just bought a nice looking 2002 Ford F250 4×4, four-door cab, cold AC, big tires, everything works, good condition, 130K miles for a little over $8K. This truck has a simple 4 speed automatic transmission that does not have any reputation for problems. The worst thing, is that the 5.4 liter V8 engine can spit out a spark plug, which Ford mechanics know how to repair in one hour with a Cal-Van threaded insert kit. That’s usually the worst thing that happens with this make/model/engine truck.

        Hannah would benefit from owning a 4×4 Ford truck, because she could haul lumber, building materials, supplies, and get in-out of her house in the winter because her van is not four-wheel-drive. Just about every car dealer and car mechanic can work on and get parts for a Ford truck.

        The fact that both Hannah and her sister want a Land Rover Defender, is to be obnoxious and ostentatious about having money. Again, go look at this link to see how much “Land Rover Defenders” cost, look at all eight pages of ads https://www.dupontregistry.com/autos/results/land–rover/defender

  2. Hello all. I came across this site today as I was trying to find out where Hannah had bought 15 acres with a less than $400 a month payment. I figured that she must’ve had a decent down payment on it to get the payments so low or the land is in an undesirable location. However, she does state that it is very remote….Anyway, I felt compelled to read through the comments here thinking someone might say where she bought the land….So, here I am.
    In regard to all of your speculations here is what I have to offer….I come from East Texas- and very humble beginnings. My parents were both uneducated and my dad never made more than 30,000 a year before he died in 2014. My mom has filed bankruptcy numerous times I am embarrassed to say and I have NEVER had a rich husband, boyfriend, or anyone else in my life give me money or help me. Yet, I have been able to travel the world, live in an apartment that overlooked the skyscrapers of Dubai, and I now live in one of the best neighborhoods in California.
    I am a school teacher….I took a job in Dubai and they gave me a great apartment, I travelled during breaks and saw so much of the world…I was determined to see more so I saved my money and took 1/2 a year to just travel. Like Hannah, I stayed in hostels and traveled very cheap. I then moved back to the US where I took a job on a farm though a site called HelpX. This farm gave me a place to live for free, fed me and even gave me a little gas money. I lived there for a year and just enjoyed being in nature before my money ran completely out and I had to go back to the stress of working. I am now living in a beautiful neighborhood where the houses all cost more than $500,000 but I am living in an RV in my landlord’s backyard. I think it is illegal but no one has complained so far. I am able to save a lot of money living here and want to buy land with the cash I am saving. That is how I came across Hannah’s story- by looking at videos of people living a more free life.
    So, yes, you can live in a cool apartment and not have rich parents or a lot of money coming in….even when I was in the states I was able to afford an apartment with a great view – I found a place that was renovated and part of a community rejuvenation project. It had wood floors, brick walls and amazing windows (but no porch). Anyway, the point is that it is good to speculate and be careful of everything you read or see posted but people really can come from humble beginnings and do some pretty amazing things on a small income.

    1. Emma,

      Thank you for your comment. In the past, I have made an effort to find the location of the YouTubers “Piper Blush”, “IRL Rosie”, “Prepper Princess”, and “Isabel Paige”. In every case, most commentors were very shrill about me having no right to do this, even though they happened upon my blog post article by trying to find out where these people lived. Lately, even referring to Isabel Paige living in eastern Washington State, never even mentioning the town or street address, causes people fits.

      I have made some attempts to locate Hannah Lee Duggan. I found the town where she was living, the Carnegie Library where she filmed some of her videos on the lawn, the old steel trestle bridge where she made videos, the creek below this bridge where she was walking on the rocks, the wharf where she sat playing chess. It was a nice, quaint, very small tourist town. I thought about it, but I didn’t feel like sharing Hannah’s exact location with readers, because they would hunt her down, chase her, and corner her like an animal.

      When Hannah purchased her rural, remote property, I wanted to try to find where this was. I wondered how she could afford to buy the two primitive homes and this land, how and why would a bank loan her money. Here are some of the questions which I had that made me skeptical:

      1) Banks always require a home inspection by an experienced licensed home inspector, to make sure that the home is up to building code among other things. Even having an outbuilding that is decrepit can cause a loan denial from a bank. Having an out-house instead of an indoor toilet would probably cause a loan denial from a bank. The condition and state of some of the things in the two primitive homes would probably cause a loan denial from a bank. For instance, most banks will not loan money on manufactured homes, even when they are completely functional, because banks consider their value to be depreciating. The same would probably be true for the two unfinished homes without indoor toilets, insulation, electric or gas central heating, only wood-stove heating.
      2) Because Hannah does not have a traditional job, I am skeptical that a bank would give Hannah a mortgage loan. I believe that Hannah’s YouTube video revenue is probably at least $1,500 per month, up to maybe $3,000 per month, but it is dependent on the amount of views that her videos receive, how many videos she makes, if she makes videos at all, and what policies YouTube is going to implement affecting monetization. I can’t believe that her DePop income is more than $20 per day.
      3) From Hannah’s activities, especially the amount of building materials and supplies that she goes through each day, it looks like she averages about $500 each and every week on building materials, hardware, and building supplies, not including her electric utilities, food, gas in her van, insurance on her van, internet, phone bill, travel, other items and expenses, plus home loan payments. To me, it looks like she is personally going through about $4,000 per month, but I don’t see that she has this level of after-tax income, meaning she would have to make about $60,000 per year before income taxes were taken out.

      There are many things that do not add up or make sense. For instance, it is possible for a single young person to buy a home and property in the $130,000 price range, if they have a steady job and their monthly mortgage payment would be less than their rent payment. However, Hannah wasn’t even planning on living on this property during the winter, she was going to travel and live elsewhere, which means having to pay for an additional place to live.

      In your case Emma, you kind of described being able to live cheaply, because you had to, or because you had become accustomed to having very little, with no safety net if something happened. You went to Dubai to teach, with probably no way to pay for rent in Dubai if your job didn’t work out, or no way to pay for your airline ticket home if your job was canceled. You are living in a nice neighborhood in California, in an RV in someone’s backyard, with no guarantee from day to day that the neighbors won’t complain to zoning/code enforcement to get you kicked out.

      For this particular blog post article, I believe that at least one other commentor has pointed out, and several other commentors have pointed out elsewhere, that many/most of the people on YouTube who are great adventurers, risk-takers, business entrepreneurs, have some unmentioned person backing them and always available to help/support them if/when they fail. They can’t really fail, because their mother, father, grandparents, inheritance, trust fund, or insurance settlement won’t let them fail.

      It’s kind of like a trap or a slap in the face to ordinary, average, poor working people who watch other young people quit their job and travel around the World to exotic and paradisical places, when if they quit their job in Dallas, Houston, or Los Angeles, within a week or month they would be homeless living on the street, sleeping on the ground in a park or an alley. It doesn’t work that way, quitting your job and traveling around the World for most people.

      1. Hmmm……I see……Yes, you and others do indeed make a very good argument. I am very glad I came upon your writings. I tend to be quite gullible at times and in this day and age of photoshop and any and everything being manipulated it is good to be reminded to not take things at face value.
        I viewed more of her videos after I posted my comment here and yes, she does go through a lot of materials. Perhaps her parents are funding a lot of stuff for her. Regardless, the longer I pondered everything you said the more I realized that it doesn’t seem that plausible….
        I also realized that my reasoning about how I was able to live and do things doesn’t really prove or disprove anything- because I had a “steady” (albeit small) income to be able to afford things, my awesome apartment overseas was provided as part of my work package, and I wasn’t “purchasing anything” through a bank loan. You are right- the bank doesn’t easily loan money. The banks will not lend to most “self employed” people unless they can prove a steady income for two years via tax records.
        I like the point you made about the “trap or slap in the face.” So many people would love to quit their jobs and travel- or own their own little slice of paradise but don’t know how. Then they watch videos and get their hopes up only to find that it is as you said- a no-go because the bank won’t do the loan, etc. I like that you are investigating and looking for the truth. We have enough disappointments in life and we deserve the truth.
        Have you ever watched the documentary, Don’t F— With Cats? I think it would appeal to you….

      2. Emma,

        I want to like Hannah, because of her looks and her personality, but sometimes it is hard, because I don’t think that she is being truthful. Sometimes I don’t even know who or what she is.

        As an example of this, here is the link to Hannah’s acting resume: https://www.nowcasting.com/actor/popup/viewactor.php?actorID=hannahleeduggan

        Wait, hold on, she’s an actress? Maybe she wants to be an actress.

        What bothers me more than Hannah being an actress, is her publicity photos. Hannah is very pretty, but she is naturally “geeky”, which is fine and preferable to me that she comes this way. However, her publicity photos here and elsewhere, the way that she is made-up and presented, it’s like she is trying to portray herself as a seductress or a femme-fatale. I don’t like it, it makes me wonder what is the truth, is she a good-natured geek, a femme fatale, a bitch, a whore, a self-seeking narcissist?

        In her acting resume, Hannah states that she took/did among other things: Ballet, Archery, Figure Skating, Gymnastics, Horse Back Riding (English), Horseback Riding (Western), Sailing, Tennis, Wakeboarding. That’s a lot of activities, but most middle-class families would not be able to pay for all of those activities. Ballet, Figure Skating, and Gymnastics all require several days per week of training, for years. When you get into things like English saddle horse back riding, middle-class families don’t even know what that is, let alone pay for their daughter to do this.

        I have tried to look up Hannah’s parents to learn what kind of background that she comes from, and all I could find was that her parents have ordinary jobs. I have wondered if Hannah has very doting benevolent grandparents who enjoy paying for whatever activities or adventures that she wishes to try.

        Women hate people looking into their backgrounds, but I have learned that you had better, it’s astonishing the things that they do.

        **UPDATE 12/13/20**: I wanted to learn more about Hannah and her background. So I kept looking. In a previous comment, I wrote a number of things that I was suspicious about concerning Hannah being able to purchase a 15 acre property. Because Hannah does not have a normal job, and this property does not have normal houses on it, I was suspicious that a bank would loan Hannah money for this property.

        Hannah was claiming to have purchased this 15 acre property in approximately October of 2020, this is true, however the information that I uncovered very strongly suggests that this property WAS ALREADY OWNED BY A FAMILY MEMBER. I am not going to be more specific about my information, because I DO NOT want anyone to be able to use this information to try to find Hannah’s location, but I could show this information if absolutely forced to do so if I were legally accused of making a false statement.

        The information that I found, that suggests that this property was already owned by a family member, makes me wonder if this sale was not a “family deal” of some sort. Was this property purchase a contract for deed from the owner? Furthermore, the purchase price listed is much, much lower than what I believe viewers were led to believe, it was lower than $100K.

        Many YouTube viewers are poor, do not earn very much money, do not have many opportunities to earn more money, have disadvantages of not having higher education, training in a skilled trade, or good physical health. They watch videos of young, single girls like “Isabel Paige” and “Hannah Lee Duggan”, not working at a normal job, making videos for most of the day, and purchasing or building a home on acreage, and they can’t understand how these young, single, non-employed people can do this, it makes them feel like failures.

  3. I’ve just recently started watching her videos and to add to some of the comments- it seems she had very small parts for acting, however, did model starting at age 12. Between that and her you tube videos hitting between 200k to 900k and a few over 1M views, she is making a lot of money! If you look at the lifestyle of other you tubers with a lot less views, they are living a very comfortable lifestyle. What I don’t understand though is why she would buy the ‘rustic’ cabins versus something in better shape with a full bathroom. Although she is on 15 acres and likes projects so I can definitely see her doing a larger new build on the land. I find her interesting and look forward to her next ventures/projects.

    1. Liz,

      For some of the YouTubers that I have written about, such as “Prepper Princess”, “Isabel Paige”, and “Hannah Lee Duggan”, I have seen some deliberate attempts to hide or not let on that they have money. For instance, Prepper Princess made a YouTube video explaining how she saved & inherited about $400K, which she invested with a financial advisor. Not long after that, she took this particular video down, and she began making YouTube video after video about “living at the poverty level”. I think the reason why, is that most people in the U.S. and Earth are poor, if you want your videos to appeal to the highest number of people possible, you want to be watched and liked by poor people, you can’t let on that you have money because viewers will not relate to you, you have to act like you are one of them, just like them, you don’t have money.

  4. Hey guys, I think you are overlooking just how lucrative YouTube can be once you get to the stage that Hannah is at, a useful tool for getting an estimate of YouTube ad revenue earnings would be social blade.

    As you can see the margins are wide, but we can assume due to her popularity that she will be somewhere in the middle which would net her an average of $6k per month.

    1. This has been bothering me since I started watching her, and Isabel. I usually watch videos on vacant house explores, or real struggling van lifers. Don’t know why her videos popped up in my feed. If you look at YouTube analytics, most recent report on Hannah, it is $17k per month…..or am I looking at the numbers wrong?! These poor little rich girl/boy videos do a huge disservice to real struggling people everywhere that can not see through the fake.

        I do not think that Hannah is making $17K per month on YouTube even though she has almost 500K subscribers now. If this were true, YouTubers like Scotty Kilmer with 3-4 million subscribers would be making $120K per month, $1.4 million per year, he drives a 1990s Toyota Celica, and lives in an ordinary clunky old house.

        A couple of commentors have mentioned that Isabel Paige can’t monetize her YouTube videos because she usually plays copyrighted music in her videos, which is a 3-strikes you’re out on a monetized YouTube channel. Unless she pays the artists’ representatives for their use?

  5. Lol…..According to drukadvice
    She has a wealthy boyfriend
    Her channel has over 457k subscribers as of 2021 and has gained about 23.8 million views so far. Every 2 week she uploads a two to three video on her channel and the subscriber is growing exponentially at the rate of 1200 new subscribers every single day. Total upload video generates over 4.25 million page views month. Therefore she is earning estimate revenue of $1200 per day ($432k annually) solely from YouTube ads that run on the video
    Net worth….1.5 million

    1. Ellen Ley,

      I watched several YouTube videos of Hannah’s boyfriend “Mavrik Joos”. After a few seconds of the first video, I was saying to myself, “Oooooooooh, Haaaaaanaaaaah?” My initial impression was that Mavrik was not very masculine, I would say that he was elf-like. Hannah’s mother’s first husband and her second husband were both artists, so I think that Hannah gets this from her mother.

      I think that Hannah gets a lot of things from her mother. I think that neither Hannah nor her mother like to be dominated, led, controlled, or be domestic. Having a boyfriend like Mavrik, Hannah is not going to be dominated, controlled, handled roughly, or have expectations or demands placed on her, to the contrary, in this situation Hannah is able to be in control.

      As far as Mavrik’s YouTube videos, I have no interest in seeing someone spend time in the split-in-half bed of a Ford F-150 where they can’t even sit upright. Don’t want to do it, don’t want to watch it, don’t even want to talk about it.

      But back to Hannah. Hannah and her mother “think” that they don’t want to be dominated, controlled, have expectations and demands put on them. They choose men who in almost every circumstance would be yielding to them and compliant with what they want, allowing the women to actually be in control and dominating, which is not the natural role of women.

      Hannah and her mother have never reached their full potential and attained the most satisfying, rewarding, and fulfilling relationships because they settled for and sought out a situation where they could be in control versus the Alpha/Type “A” men that had much more to offer but would place more demands and stress on them. Though Hannah acts like an adventurer, and meets many “boys”, she is actually scared to interact with men who are more handsome, intelligent, stronger, and successful than her because she can’t handle them being in control, dominating, leading, deciding, making her do things, though this is the natural role of women. Though they would both screech at me that I don’t know what I am talking about, deep in their heart both Hannah and her mother know that I am right.

    1. Ellen Ley,

      I watched the approx. 45 minute YouTube video that you provided the link to in your comment. This video started out with the potential to get into the truth and facts about actually living in a van out of choice or necessity, versus faking living in a van when you actually have a nice home to stay in and plenty of money, but this video kind of lost its drive, momentum, and purpose during the 2nd half of it.

      In particular, the “Wonder Bus” couple that the video creator interviewed, they irritate me probably the most out of all the van-life people, because they and their van are always so pristine, that I don’t see how they could keep their van so clean unless they are staying in a hotel every night, or have a second vehicle that they take everywhere with them. I say this, because for myself and my co-workers, ourselves and our vehicles get more disheveled during a single 12-hour work shift, than this “Wonder Bus” couple who claim to be living in their van.

      I could go on and on about actual van-life versus fake van-life. The people who I have met who truly live out of their van due to choice or necessity, they have an ever-present fearfulness and anxiety about their life because they are constantly worried about money, getting their van towed, getting chased out of where they park, having a van break-in, or having a van break-down. People who have a nice home to go to and plenty of money to buy or get whatever they need, they are the carefree adventurers and risk-takers, they can afford to do foolish things, careless things, and make mistakes.

  8. Yeah, I hear you. …pretty much all fake van living, fake tiny house living for most if not all the ones on Instagram, tiktok, etc. Been hot trending for several years now. I started watching van life, car survival, tiny house set ups, solar, electronics, gear, etc, years ago, for tips, and sure, there were some sponsors involved. ….. then my feeds started showing vids to watch of these obviously fake van lifers, tiny homes…..say around 2012 when Instagram started up? Yikes! Most is all just spon con. I mean, come on, where do they keep all those dresses, other clothing , wrinkle free, crisp, new, clean looking, that they are gyrating in , romping around in, modeling in? Surely not in the van. Agents are directing where to go, which sponsors to endorse, even a videographer. A clean van, or even a tiny home, is a must for Instagram, don’t you think? Lol…. along with make up. Spon cons. These types are just making it harder on real van lifers by drawing more scrutiny, even more danger, anxiety to them then there already was to begin with, as you have mentioned.

      1. In reply to Tom,

        Tom, the quicker that young people catch on and realize that something is not right, not normal about a young lady buying/owning a 10-15 acre property with two houses on it, who doesn’t have a job, who spends her days making a shelf or re-doing some floors, the quicker that young people can realize that this is not how life is going to work for them, and the sooner that they can start thinking about what skill, trade, job, training, apprenticeship, or education they need to get in order to survive and get ahead themselves. It’s probably going to mean living at home with mom & dad for a while until they can afford a cheap apartment, a cheap beat-up ugly vehicle, working one or two jobs, living cheaply for years before they can buy a small modest home.

      3. In reply to Tom,

        Tom, some readers have left comments saying that Hannah Lee Duggan and Isabel Paige have production assistants and video editors who help them make YouTube videos. I don’t see this. Hannah and Isabel each upload about one 20 minute YouTube video per week. These YouTube videos that they make, consist of trying on clothing, cutting trees & branches, cooking vegetables, putting up a fence, building a shelf, going for a hike, all of which are not that difficult.

        Look at it this way, there are thousands of 20-25 year old males who completely frame an entire 3,000 square foot house every two weeks. They frame twenty single-family homes in a year. Yet men and women marvel and rave that Hannah and Isabel are able to install a couple of shelves in a week, when they have no other job to do. It’s stupid people who waste time watching Hannah and Isabel, I don’t think that Hollywood is involved.

  9. I don’t care where Hannah got her money from to buy the house(s) or how she funds her lifestyle. When I started watching her a year or so ago I thought she was entertaining, independent and resourceful.

    Fast forward to now and I recently unsubscribed to her channel. She is so affected that it exhausts me now. The giggling, the twirling, the singing, the preening, the “I’m so happy” proclamations – I truly can’t take it anymore. She makes me feel like a 75-year old widower who’s grandkids live out of state. It’s basically Grandparent TV or Perverts TV. I give up.

    1. Carolyn Hakes,

      I recently became so bored with YouTube videos that I began to pay to watch every episode of seasons 1, 2, and 3 of the HBO series “The Sopranos”, which I did not want to do because organized crime should not be glamorized or admired. I hate to admit it, but the characters, scenarios, situations, personalities, and dialogue in every episode of The Sopranos is interesting.

      It’s strange that Tony Soprano, his wife, his kids, his work, and his associates seem to me to be more real, normal, worthwhile, purposeful, and something that I can identify with, in comparison to Hannah Lee Duggan and Isabel Paige not having a job, spending all morning making and contemplating coffee, paying attention to which thrift store outfit they are going to wear in an empty field with no one around.
