Award and Rankings
Back in March 2014, their vlog, which showed them singing “Love is an Open Door” which is a song from the 2013 animated flick “Frozen” went viral. And, the vlog was titled “Good Looking Parents Sing Disney’s Frozen (Love Is an Open Door)” and was viewed by millions within a few days of its release. Likewise, it also won the “Artists Music Guild” award for the “Video of the Year” in the year 2014.
And, after the video went viral, Sam and Nia viewed it as an opportunity to step into the blogging arena. That’s why they created a Youtube channel to post videos about their lives. Likewise, following the massive success of their first video, their channel began growing at a decent pace.
Furthermore, “The Daily Dot” in December 2015 listed “Sam and Nia” as the 3rd most influential YouTubers of the year 2015. And “Digital Spy” in February 2017 listed “Sam and Nia” as number six of 7 of YouTube’s most shocking scandals.
In February 2017, Nia and her husband, Sam, were ranked sixth on a list of “YouTube’s most shocking scandals”, released by the UK-based entertainment website ‘Digital Spy’. And, Nia’s family channel saw a huge slump soon after its inception. In the year 2015, a vlog post on the channel showed Sam announcing that Nia was pregnant with their third child. Usually, such videos draw a lot of attention, and this vlog, too, was no exception and gained a lot of attention. As soon as the vlog was posted, the “comments” section was deluged with wishes.
Interestingly, even Nia Rader was unaware of the news. Apparently, her husband had tested the pregnancy all by himself, by collecting her urine sample from their toilet bowl. Then, three days later, another vlog posted by them announced a miscarriage. Then, this vlog was soon hit by a mob of haters, accusing the couple of faking both the pregnancy and the miscarriage. Later on, a report from a well-known maternity clinic suggested that a urine sample collected from a toilet bowl could never produce a concrete result.
Likewise, the couple had not recovered from the impact of this controversy when she was hit by another controversy. A leading website revealed that her husband, Sam had once been a member of a discreet dating site for married people and people in relationships known as ‘Ashley Madison’. This scandal again rocked Sam and Nia’s married life. And, while this dating-site scandal continued, the couple attended the “Vlogger Fair” in Seattle. Moreover, their inability to answer questions regarding their scandals ended up in a dirty verbal brawl between Sam and the media. And, after this incident, they announced a break from vlogging. However, they resumed after about a month from the day of the announcement.
