Who is Catherine Paiz?
Born on 24 August 1990, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, under the earth sign of Virgo, Catherine Paiz is a 28-year-old Panamanian-Canadian model, actress, YouTuber, influencer and social media personality. She became famous when she signed a contract with Victoria’s Secret when she was just 16-years-old. Since then, she has worked her way to superstardom by modeling for Azzelia Swimwear, and being the VIP manager of Arkadia Miami, one of the most popular night clubs on the East Coast. Her social media following grew even further upon her marriage to Austin McBroom, former shooting guard of the St. Louis University basketball team of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). The two run a YouTube channel called “The ACE Family”.
Early Life and Education: From Canada to Florida
Catherine was born in Canada to parents who immigrated from Panama in their youth. Thus as a child, she learned to speak English, Spanish and French fluently. She has three siblings – two brothers, Josh and Ryan, and a sister whose name we still don’t know. When she was still a toddler, her mother and father split up. Paiz remained in Canada to live with her father, but ultimately decided to relocate to Tampa, Florida to live with her mother. Unlike many single moms, her mom had life under control – she was a successful hair stylist who owned a hair salon. In middle and high school, Catherine was an avid sports junkie, and participated in many extra-curricular activities – she played hockey, soccer, volleyball and even swam competitively. Despite already being a model and somewhat of a star in her home state, Catherine didn’t want to disregard her education. She enrolled at St. Louis University in 2009, but it’s unclear whether she graduated or not.
Career Beginnings: Modeling and VIP Management
Ever since she was a young teen, Paiz dreamed of becoming a model. Slowly but surely she started meeting photographers and casting agents, all in order to get noticed. Her hard work and promotion paid off when she signed her first contract at the age of 16. Victoria’s Secret wanted to work with this young star, so she moved to Los Angeles, California for more modeling gigs. However, things didn’t work out so well after she did a few campaigns with them. She had trouble finding an offer that suited her, so she got a job at an ice cream parlor just to make ends meet.
A few months later, she got another opportunity to conquer the modeling industry when Azzelia Swimwear signed her. After several magazine features and interviews for famous websites, she became recognized. Upon the conclusion of her contract, she became the VIP manager for Arkadia Miami. Her job involved organizing parties, accommodating celebrities and designing performance schedules, which required her to mingle with famous people on a daily basis. Around the same time, Catherine began aggressively promoting her social media accounts, leading to a rise in popularity.
A True Online Star
Paiz used this initial platform to make a name for herself – she is one of the earliest celebrities to use Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to promote various brands, and as one of the early influencers, became known throughout the US. Her contacts from the modeling world helped her in this transitional phase, as she posted equal numbers of professional photos and selfies from her everyday life. She also gave motivational advice and makeup-related tips, which resonated with a lot of her female followers. As a result of her popularity, she became friends with superstars such as Kylie Jenner, Chantel Jeffries and others. They promoted each other, which lead many to deem Catherine as a true member of the highest echelon of US celebrities.
The ACE Family: Her Relationship with Austin McBroom
In 2015, Catherine encountered St. Louis University shooting guard Austin McBroom at a party in Miami. The two knew each other from before because they attended the same school, but never hung out together. They exchanged numbers and Austin texted her right away. However, Catherine was reluctant to respond because she was focused on her career at the time, and didn’t need any distractions. A month later, she texted back and Austin immediately asked her out to dinner. They instantly clicked and arranged to go hiking together. On 10 January 2016, they started their own YouTube channel – The ACE Family. The “ACE” stands for Austin, Catherine and Elle (her then-unborn daughter). With features from Kylie Jenner, Chris Brown and other celebrities, their channel became one of the most popular on the entire platform. According to their YouTube description, they post ‘vlogs, crazy experiences, challenges, pranks, and fun family times’. Austin proposed to her in 2017 and they married less than a year later in a private ceremony. They have two children. Elle Lively was born on 28 May 2016, and her sister Alaia Maria came to this world on 17 October, 2018.
The ACE Family Charity Basketball Game
On 29 June, 2019, Catherine and Austin teamed up with Chris Brown to organize a charity basketball game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The two teams featured many celebrities and Austin’s former college teammates. With more than 20,000 people turning up for the event, they managed to raise over $500,000 that went to various charities. After the game, Paiz and her beau announced that they would be more active as philanthropists in the future.
Did Austin McBroom Cheat on Catherine?
In late June of 2019, a woman Tweeted at Catherine, stating that one of her friends had sexual intercourse with Austin after they met at a party in Miami. Apparently, McBroom made this unnamed woman sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA), which forbids her from publicly speaking about the incident; if she breaks the agreement, she would face legal consequences. The claims were met with mixed reactions from fans. Some people brushed off these rumors, stating that Austin would never do such a thing. Others, however, said that this probably wasn’t the first time he did this, given the fact that an NDA was involved.
Catherine quickly responded to the woman via Twitter, with the following statement: ‘Omg lmao? post your “proof” the people wanna see? how about you post what you got and if someone tries to sue you all pay for it. Deal? I swear ppl believe everything they read.’ Since then, the accuser failed to provide any proof and subsequently deleted her Tweet. While the rumors were put to rest, there are some fans of the ACE Family that believe the incident did in fact happen, but that Catherine forgave Austin.
Body Measurements: How Tall is Catherine Paiz?
Catherine Paiz is 5ft 6in (168cm) tall, weighs approximately 125lbs (57kg), and has an hourglass figure, which is evident by her vital statistics of 34-25-35. She has light brown hair and dark brown eyes.
Did Catherine Piaz Undergo Plastic Surgery?
Unlike most models, Catherine was open about her experiences with “going under the knife”. She had breast enlargement surgery in 2010, which she admitted via Instagram – ‘I’m very open about it and although I didn’t need to do the procedure I have no regrets life’s too short to not go through with things that will make you happy’, she said in the description. At one point, she also had a minor nasal correction procedure.
Net Worth: How Rich is Catherine Paiz?
Have you ever wondered how affluent Paiz really is? According to credible sources, she has a net worth of approximately $2 million, as of August 2019, accumulated largely by signing contracts with Azzelia Swimwear and Victoria’s Secret at a very young age. Instead of wasting money, she wisely invested in marketing and promotion, which resulted in her becoming a social media star. Today, she earns most of her revenue from brand endorsements, monetization of her YouTube videos, and modeling. Given the fact that her fandom is constantly growing, her net worth will surely rise in the near future.
