Over the last several years, YouTube has become an extremely popular method for people to express themselves. Users with niche interests often create content for a community of fans that is sometimes millions strong. For viewers who are interested in Japan or Japanese culture, Miss Hannah Minx was one of the most popular YouTube stars. Her Japanese language videos garnered millions of views, but she disappeared suddenly several years ago. So what happened to Hannah Minx, and where is she now?

Hannah Minx’s Rise to YouTube Stardom

Hannah Wagner, AKA Hannah Minx, was born in Lexington Kentucky on October 31,1988. While she didn’t spend her childhood in the entertainment business, she eventually realized that she wanted to bring a smile to people’s faces. When she was studying abroad at Sophia University in Japan, she had the idea to make educational Japanese language videos, which she calls JWOWs (Japanese Word of the Week).

Hannah joined YouTube in 2008 and uploaded her first video in March, 2009. She became an overnight success. Her MissHannahMinx YouTube channel’s popularity skyrocketed; her most watched video has over 10 million views. Her subscribers were entertained by weekly JWOWs, as well as other content featuring Hannah’s signature cute, Japanese style.

 

What Happened to Hannah??

Besides working on YouTube, Hannah also made several films. In 2012, she appeared in The Devil’s Carnival, a horror movie about a hellish carnival. She also worked on the film Slay Belles, which is set to come out Christmas 2016.


However, in spite of her success, Hannah Minx disappeared in 2013. Her last video was filmed on August 9th of that year, and she hasn’t really been seen or heard from since. Her social media pages have been silent, and her YouTube channel still has no new videos.There has been a great deal of speculation about what happened to Hannah.

Some fans have suggested that she got pregnant, and there was even some speculation that she had died. Because of the lack of reliable information we have about Hannah’s personal life, it is difficult to distinguish between what is true and what is false.

What is Hannah Minx Doing Now in 2018?

A facebook post from Hannah Minx

Amidst all the rumors about Hannah’s disappearance, one Reddit user claims to have the answers. This person is allegedly a long time fan of Hannah’s. Because they watched Hannah’s videos early in her career when she was adding fans to her personal Facebook page, this person has insider access to her personal life.

In a post from a year ago, the u/rosietherose states that Hannah’s personal facebook page confirms that she is married with children. Her alleged husband is Steve Fox Osterhagen, and her Facebook update from May of 2014 is evidence that this may be true.

So why did Hannah quit YouTube? This user claims that because Hannah’s manager owned the rights to the “HannahMinx” trademark, Hannah was no longer the owner of her own content. Instead of fighting to get her channel back, Hannah Minx has chosen to embrace her new life as a wife and mother, and leave her persona behind.

It is unclear whether u/rosietherose’s post is genuine, but the evidence seems to support their claims. Either way, it seems clear that we shouldn’t be expecting more content from Hannah Minx any time soon.

  1. If you’re interested, I know exactly why she disappeared in 2013. It’s not pretty. Email me at jessesmithbear@yahoo if you’d like.

  2. I am 100% sure that she isnt married. Her supossed husband is not married. Hannah is happy, shes living in philladelphia. On whitepages you can find some information about her.

  3. To dispel a few rumors:

    1. She is not married, never was, and the name osterhagen means “other half” in german, and was a troll
    2. The baby photo was not her child
    3. There was no wedding, there is no wedding pictures that exist, hence it did not happen.
    4. Hellz Bellz was film prior to her 2013 dissappearance.
    5. no new pictures of her have been released, including the current twitter avatar, we can see, this is clearly an old pic.
    6. People who commented about the wedding, never attended it.
    7. Dead people have facebook accounts too! The thing about facebook is, once you know someones password, you can impersonate them very easily.
    8. She had millions of followers, was a very social-media savvy person, and updated hers on a daily basis, then.. nothing.

    anything else I didnt cover here? Oh ya shall I mention again, the twitter account is an obvious troll. There is no real evidence of her existence. The only acceptable evidence, would be a new video of her, or one of her family members speaking about her in 2016.
    please support the cause to find the truth about Ms.Wagner!

    I have created a FB group called “Finding Hannah Minx by hiring a Private Investigator” please join to support, and find the truth!

  4. The funniest thing about this whole article and all the other comments in here, is that they totally ignore the 900 lb gorilla in the room. Okay. I’ll say it.
    BOOBS.

    Her entire rise to stardom on YouTube, and the only reason anyone knows anything about her or watchers her, is because of her BOOBS. She made YouTube videos to highlight them and only them.

    It cracks me up that the entire article talks about her “rise to stardom”, and her “Japanese Language” videos. LOL! Give me a break. They are boob videos. Nothing more.

  5. Can’t tell if all that stuff is true or not. But from what I looked up it seems the guy she married is rich. She got herself knocked up real fast just to make sure she will still be able to get that money if they get divorced. She is now living on his dime. It’s really that simple. I don’t believe any of this other BS.
