Who is Gstaad Guy?
Gstaad Guy is an online comedian originally from London, England. He’s most popular on Instagram and TikTok, where his characters Constance and Colton mock the elite from all around the world.
Behind the scenes, he’s told reporters that he works a full-time white-collar job for Apple, who apparently still haven’t realised what the comedian does in his downtime.
How did Gstaad Guy become famous?
Gstaad Guys’ first video was inspired by a FaceTime call he was having with a friend. In his own words, the friend was “really pretentious” and was complaining about how his masseuse was late while he was on a winter holiday in Gstaad.
The friend’s mother then asked him to tell her son how ridiculous he was being, and so Gstaad Guy recorded a video of him imitating the friend and sent it back to the mom which she shared in some WhatsApp groups.
A few weeks later after returning from a holiday, he found he was being recognised in public, with people referring to him as the ‘Gstaad Guy’. In his own words, “I thought to myself ‘Gstaad Guy, I like it.’ So I created the account, started posting and here we are.”
From there Gstaad Guy has rubbed shoulders with celebrities including the Hadid family, Chantel Jeffries, and Off-White creator Virgil Abloh, with his character Colton even voicing a runway show for the late designer.
He’s also been invited out to Gstaad multiple times to attend parties which he said were “surreal” due to finding fans of his in a “trillion dollar-net worth basement”.
