Kalel Cullen, (born Kristen Smith March 30, 1989), is a YouTuber and a PETA activist. She makes vlogs and other videos on her channel. She is the former fiancé of former Smosh member Anthony Padilla. They got engaged on June 29, 2013, but released a video on December 4, 2014, stating that they had broken up, but assuring the viewers that they were still friends though they haven't done any known videos together.

In Anthony's second Draw My Life he told viewers that the whole relationship was manipulative and he now feels that she pretty much just used him. He was so walked on that he would ask her approval for pretty much every aspect of his life and she all but destroyed his self confidence. This is the original reason why he became a vegan and did so many things that she liked.

Kalel has only appeared in three Smosh videos: "HOW TO DUMP YOUR GIRLFRIEND!" as Anthony's new wife, "POKEMON IN REAL LIFE 4!" & "If Video Games Were Real 2" as the in-suit Jigglypuff.

Personal Life

Kalel met Anthony in 2010 at a party. After a month of being friends, they started dating on 10th October 2010. They lived together in Los Angeles, California along with their cats Kabuki, Pip and Mogwai until the end of their relationship. She now lives with her boyfriend, along with Kabuki and Mogwai (Now renamed Chibi).

Before she dated Anthony, she had two YouTube channels, KalelCullenTV and QueenBeeuty. She posted mostly vlogs, advice, and opinions on KalelCullenTV and beauty videos on QueenBeeuty.

In her last QueenBeeuty video, she announced she would no longer make beauty videos but post a video once or twice a month on her new channel Cozplai, where she would be posting tutorials showing how to make cosplay costumes for her favorite characters. Cozplai didn't receive more than 100,000 subscribers during its running period.

After a few months of Cozplai, Kalel felt that the channel was too much work and did not like the idea of putting on makeup on camera, and decided to start a new channel called WonderlandWardrobe in between September and October 2012, consisting of DIY, vlogs and fashion videos. By June 2013, the channel reached 400,000 subscribers. However, sometime after, Kalel decided she wanted to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer, therefore wouldn't have time to post videos to her channel. Then, she revealed that she would be starting a new channel called WatchUsLiveAndStuff with Anthony, which consisted of vlogs, tags and challenges posted almost daily. After only one and a half months of starting, with 45 videos, the channel had already reached 500,000 subscribers. WatchUsLiveAndStuff now consists of Kabuki and her renamed to just Kalel as her personal channel. 

Whilst on vacation in Japan with Anthony, he proposed to Kalel while recording a vlog after nearly 3 years of dating ("A Romantic Day in Japan").

On December 4, 2014, she and Anthony publicly announced that they had broken up.
