What Happened to Hannah Minx? 2024 Updates

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’s Hannah Minx Doing Now In 2024 – Recent Updates

According to one Reddit user, who allegedly had her as a friend on Facebook (she added fans on her personal Facebook page early in her career), she is currently married with children. While it hasn’t been confirmed, they say that her husband is a man named Steve Fox Osterhagen.

They also had an answer as to why she quit YouTube. Apparently, her manager owned the rights to the “Hannah Minx” trademark, which meant that she no longer owned her own content. While she could have fought to get her channel back, she chose another route—to embrace her new life as a wife and mother.

Not only did she leave YouTube, but she also abandoned her Instagram account. Her Twitter also went private.

So for those who are wondering, we probably won’t be getting any content from her any time soon. If anything, she’s probably busy with her family—that and she may very well be working a full-time job that doesn’t leave her any time for videos.

  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.

    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.

  6. Yeah im afraid she is probably dead. She went in some comic con or something and never returned. To those who say otherwise they dont have any proof. Not a single photo and video since she dissapeared. Even onision 9years ago said that she is missing and i believe him in that at least. Something about her manager could be true but she never ever said anything online after that event so something clearly happened to her.
