It was a three-bedroom Cambridge, Massachusetts apartment that she moved into upon graduating. When she couldn’t find a job in her field, she worked as a bartender, tanning salon receptionist, and go-go dancer.
In 2010 she started a YouTube channel. “Charles Franklin Marbles is a Sad Sad Man” is the title of the first video she posted. 2.1 million people have watched the 10-year-old video as of March 2020. In the same year, she started working for Barstool Sports. A year later, she quit her job as an employee at StoolLaLa, the site’s female-oriented section, and began freelance writing.
YouTube video “How to Trick People Into Thinking You’re Good-Looking” garnered Marbles widespread fame in 2010. In its first week online, the video had over 5.3 million views. She was later featured in The New York Times and ABC News for her 2011 video “How to Avoid Talking to People You Don’t Want to Talk to”.
Fame And Recognition
Marbles also appeared in the season 2 “Adam vs. Eve” episode of Epic Rap Battles of History as Eve. Additionally, Marbles starred as herself in the 2015 film Smoosh: The Movie, which she played in the episode “Ridiculousness” of season 4 on MTV.
A number of prizes have been nominated for Marbles’ work, and she won the Viral Superstar award at the 2014 Young Hollywood Awards. In 2017, she was also the recipient of a Streamy Award for best YouTube Ensemble. She was nominated for the Shorty Awards’ Creator of the Decade award in 2018.

As the first social media sensation to be honored at Madame Tussaud’s New York City museum in 2015, Marbles was immortalized in wax.

When Marbles’s YouTube ventures initially began to become popular, her then-unemployed mother claimed that searching their last name, Mourey, via Google only yielded Marbles’ videos, and she was concerned that the content might harm her job search. During this time, Marbles chose to go under the alias “Jenna Marbles,” derived from the name of her dog.
It has been over a year since Marbles began dating fellow YouTuber Julien Solomita. The Jenna Julien Podcast, formerly known as The Jenna and Julien Podcast, has been produced by the couple every week since 2014.

Solomita and Marbles have four dogs: Mr. Marbles the Chihuahua and Kermit the Peach and Bunny the Italian Greyhounds that reside with them. A non-profit dedicated to Greyhounds, Greysave, helped the couple find and adopt Bunny in 2019.
Since 2015, Marbles has been a vegan.
In May 2018, Marbles paid $2.85 million for a Sherman Oaks, California, home, making her the first woman in the family to own a home. Located in a cul-de-sac, this 5,093-square-foot spec home offers five bedrooms and six bathrooms. She gave a tour of the house where she and Solomita live in a video she uploaded to her YouTube page.
