Biography and personal details
Megan ‘Meg’ Zelly was born in Bermuda, the British Island Territory located in the North Atlantic Ocean on April 22, 1996. Her birth sign is Taurus. She spent her early years on the island with her family, but moved to the United States in 2015 to study at the University of Miami. Zelly has an older sister known as Lizzie.
Paul created Team 10 in August 2016 as a social media media talent management company, a talent incubator for his internet empire. When he started the group, he hoped it would further his dream of becoming YouTube’s Dr. Dre. He started the group with six other creators including Alissa Violet who later became his girlfriend, Neels Visser, Alex Lange, AJ Mitchel and the Dobre twins. Although none of the original members are still part of the team, it has become one of the biggest creative collectives on YouTube and has also seen a significant turnover of on-camera talent.
The more members who left the group, the more Team 10 recruited. Some of its recent members include Anthony Trujillo, Erika Costell, Tessa Brooks, Kade Speiser, and Justin Roberts. Meg Zelly joined Team 10 in June 2017 as Jake’s assistant, the same month as Costell. Zelly became an instant celebrity with over 120,000 followers on her Instagram. Photos of her with other Team 10 members also helped boost her fame.
Speculation has grown that Team 10 may be no more after their social media died and some have left the mansion they shared. After months of inactivity, Jake’s Empire has teased a ‘new team coming soon’. He returned with a video in June 2019 titled Meet the New 10 Team. Jake and his new team continued to entertain their fans and followers.
