Kristen Tuff Scott is famous for her daily vlogs about her life as a horse-breaker and influencer living on a ranch. She was featured on season 5 of CMT’s Redneck Island.

Who is Kristen Tuff Scott?

Scott is an influencer popular among the audience of horse-breaking and horse riding communities. She is known as one of the toughest cowgirls in the town. She is famous for her unfiltered personality and witty remarks.

She got famous after posting a humorous video explaining that she wouldn’t break her clients’ horses because she had been suffering from the flu. After her sudden fame, she started sharing her witty reviews on life with her followers and also began influencer marketing on her social media.

She was one of the contestants of the 5th season of CMT’s Redneck Island. She is also a published songwriter and singer; her dedicated song ‘Grandpa’ has reached the top 10 of the ‘iTunes’ ‘Top Country Songs.’ She also does comedy and music tours (one is under the pipeline at the end of 2021).

Early Life and Education

On August 8, 1988, Scott was born to a southern family with a long farming history. She was born and raised in Piggott, Arkansas. From some of her Instagram posts, it has been known that she has two biological brothers (elder and younger). Her father and mother separated a long time ago. Later, both of her parents would get married and have their respective families. 

In the first grade, she was diagnosed with dyslexia and dysgraphia, which made it hard for her to study. She says she had a hard time blending in school and her mother was the one who helped her learn. 

“Telling you my biggest accomplishment by far will be graduating college. In first grade, I was diagnosed with dyslexia and dysgraphia. They kind of wanted to push me off to the side and didn’t want to take time to teach me how to read. My mama wasn’t having that...Nobody thought I’d graduate high school. I did so then I went on to college and finished that too. I graduated with a degree in pre-medical studies. I have a degree in chemistry biology, so you take two of the hardest degrees, and I got it, you know. I mean it’s a big accomplishment for me even though I don’t use it,” she replied to a fans’ query on her biggest accomplishment in 2016. 

After high school, she never thought she would go to college but decided to enroll after hearing about a music scholarship while being “heavy on-road sodies” during graduation. However, she liked science and chose it as her major despite being told that the subject wouldn’t fit her. Eventually, she graduated from Arizona State University in 2014 with a double major in Bio-Chemistry. 

After graduation, she took pre-medical studies to study medicine but dropped out halfway because she did not want to go to medical school anymore. So, she moved out of her place to be on the road. She started her training to ride horses, saddle breaking, in Missouri and was also sharing her journey via social media.

Getting Famous

When Scott was breaking horses for her clients, she caught the flu and called her clients to inform them about her condition. She recorded those calls, their reaction and also uploaded those videos, which in turn went viral. 

She then continued making funny videos and also began influencer marketing on her social media. Subsequently, she expanded her brand as an influencer living on a ranch with an increase in followers. On her Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts, she showed her humorous takes on trivial issues, her life as a horse-breaker, and her love for singing, dogs, cows, and fishing. 

CMT’s ‘Redneck Island

In 2016, Scott appeared as a contestant on season 5 of CMT’s Redneck Island, a reality tv-show where contestants pit against each other for the prize money of $100,000. The show was fueled by the contestants facing physical challenges along with their dealings with friendships, romance, and rivalries with fellow contestants. The show was hosted by the wrestling icon Steve Austin with Melissa Rycroft.

In the show, she recognized herself as the toughest cowgirl in the town and that she came from a lineage of farmers who believed in hard work. Her introduction to the game gave her an image of music and animal lover. She had also mentioned being raised to be a respectable southern lady but was not afraid to bespeak her mind.

During the introductory part of the show, she recognized herself as the roughest and toughest cowgirl in the town and that she came from a lineage of farmers and hard work. Her introduction to the game gave her an image of music and animal lover. She had also mentioned being raised to be a respectable southern lady but was not afraid to be blunt and speak her mind.

Although Scott did not win the prize money of the season, she later said that she would go back to the show if she had the chance in the future. She recalled the whole experience of the show as a fun environment and expressed that it was too much fun not to do it all over again.

Scott reminisces one of her favorite scenes of the show—it was with her co-contestant Jordan when Jordan applied makeup on her while they were drunk—and also shares other memorable experiences with Intellifluence. She said:

Well, they encouraged a lot of adult beverages on that show, so memories are here. Probably when I let Jordan put makeup on me, it was not for my skin it was not, you know, I mean I had kind of and not – the colors were all wrong. I mean I’m no makeup guru, but the colors were all wrong. I don’t need a dark shade of lipstick, but she put one on me anyway, but it’s okay. I saw I enjoyed that, I enjoyed Stone Cold trying to drink more whiskey than me because you can’t and probably him trying to remember any of his lines like he’s been hit in the head too many times. He’d be like, “alright guys today is the name – alright today guys today’s name a challenge is what I name this sh*t oh yeah” you know, I mean like he can’t remember his line like it’s terrible. I mean obviously the camaraderie of it all I mean you’re living in a house of 24 people and like when hot pockets – oh I’m sorry when rednecks are involved and hot pockets and balogna get low it gets moody in there. So there was that and then, you know, me there’s a big 360 camera in the living space I would yell quite frequently “hey we’re out of sodie, hey w don’t have any balogna, hey” cause you can’t go to production or he night that I got so drunk that I fell asleep on the couch – I was trying to go to sleep and they wouldn’t unmike me and the rules are it’s a fine if you go to bed with your mic on so I was laying on the couch with my necklace, like this, I was like “if you don’t come unmike me I’m going to do it myself I don’t care about the fifty dollars I need to go to bed now” it took them an hour and I got a fine.

On Influencer Marketing

After getting famous, Scott continued making funny videos and uploaded the contents on her page. She also started reviewing the PR packages (of products such as beauty products and wearables) she received from companies as her popularity increased. Scott says that she believes in giving “open and honest” feedback about the products or brand she features on her social media profile.

She emphasizes that she wouldn’t outrightly refuse to work with a product if it doesn’t fit her. Instead, she reasons that she would tell the people about her honest thoughts on the product and why it didn’t work for her. She assures that people who come to her to hear “the truth or the truth” will not have to “spend money on something that’s not going to work for them. She remarks that she would not work with a brand or a product made with sub-par standards.

“I mean I think that’s – I’ve seen people do it and I mean I’m going to give an honest opinion like if it’s straight-up acid I’m probably going to send the product back to the person and just send their money back because I rather do that than lie to my fans because I mean like the deal is like I said they come to hear the truth or my truth,” she says. “I’m not going to sit here and tell people – because like my clientele is mainly hard-working like country-style riding horses, you know, I’m not going to have them spend money on something that’s not going to work for them, you know when they work for it,” Scott reflects on her approach to dealing with brands through influencer marketing.

Scott has also modeled multiple times for companies. In 2021, she collaborated with Shopify to sell products and services via her brand website. 

‘Pokemon Go’

One of her trendy video uploads was about her encounter with the infamous video game Pokemon Go. In early 2017 after the game was launched, many players came to her ranch to catch and find the game’s characters.

The game was subsequently very popular, and its fame increased the number of people coming to her work for the game. But after some time, she was fed up with it. So, she thought if she could play the game herself and catch all the characters located on her ranch, players would stop bugging her. She then downloaded the game and collected the characters, but then found out that is not how the game works.

After finding the working mechanisms of the game, Scott got furious and uploaded her reaction to the game on her Facebook page, which in turn got viral. She said, “And I thought because I didn’t know how it worked if I downloaded the game I could catch all the Pokémons in my work, then people would quit coming in to catch them. Well, that’s not how it works. So now I have a bunch of Pokémons and there’s people still coming in to get the Pokémons. So now I feel like a nerd because I’m like ‘go back there, make a left, Zubat’s over there, and Squirtle’s in lawn and garden, by the way. But lawn and garden’s not my area so I can’t go get him. But I feel stupid. This is just not where I saw myself at 27 years old.”

At the time, Scott stated that she had a problem with the situation and she needed to ‘get it together before it got out of hand. Her experience was relatable to so many of the players, which led to her comment section flooded with relatable stories. The video eventually garnered 25 million views. In the end, the game ended up being one of her favorite games.

Music

In 2021, Scott released her first original song dedicated to her great-grandfather, who had passed away. The song was titled ‘Grandpa,’ which she had written the very next day he died, and sang it during his funeral.

On the Southern Momma Podcast, she said, “He passed away on Wednesday I wrote this on Thursday and played at his funeral on the veteran’s cemetery on Friday and it’s all real dates and if they’re the one significant part of it if you catch on like really pay attention and pick on like he said he remembers it like and then I say I’ll remember it like it was it’s because he had Alzheimer’s he couldn’t remember no more so I remember both of us so it’s kind of like the thing in the song.”

She added that it was a very personal song for her. She revealed that her grandfather, who fought during the second world war from the navy, taught her how to tie navy knots, building things, and working hard.

The song was previously uploaded on YouTube in 2015 but was officially released under the label New Country Song, and eventually reached no. 10 spot on iTunes ‘Top Country Song Chart.’

In total, Scott says she has more than 100 self-written songs in her name. She has dropped some of them on her Youtube and Facebook, where she also occasionally uploads song covers. She has uploaded covers on songs such as George Strait’s ‘You Look So Good In Love,’ Ronan Keating’s ‘When You Say Nothing at All,’ and Keith Urban’s ‘Rain on Sunday.’ 

‘American Idol’

In one of her videos, Scott has also revealed that she applied for Americas Got Talent while in college and made it through the first three interviews. According to her, she was called back and was supposed to contest in Florida, but she later dropped out because she had chemistry papers to write.

Further, in 2021, she signed a contract with JohnEdmonds Kozma of Bang Productions. Her upcoming tour, ‘Tuff Comedy & Music Tour’ is set for 2021. 

Did Kristen Tuff Scott Change her Gender?

In mid-2010, Scott was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a mastectomy to control the spread of cancer. After that, she was under-recovery for years; she was also not as active in her media platforms as she used to be. Because of the medical condition, she appeared to be physically different than before. Because of that, she got comments and questions from her followers asking if she was transgender and whether she had undergone a gender or sex reassignment surgery.

She then uploaded a Facebook video explaining the queries from the audience. She clarified that her reduced chest size resulted from a mastectomy surgery she underwent to stop her breast cancer from spreading. She enthusiastically mentioned that she would start riding horses once she felt better. She also talked about her hematoma scars and the drainage tubes she had to don even after two months of surgery. In her own words, “My t**s tried to kill me, so I cut them off. That’s how that went.”

She also assured in the video that her disease was under control after the surgery, but she still needed to recover from the surgery wound. On her social media pages, she also continued actively talking about her journey as a cancer survivor.

In April of 2020, she informed her fans of her another surgery. She uploaded a video explaining ger undergoing mole surgery on her back. She reasoned that she had to go through it because her mole made her nervous about swimming in a river full of fishes. She also remarked that she had had a similar surgery on her chin in the past.

Sexuality & Being Republican

Scott identifies herself as gay and also as a Republican. And in one of her videos, she quoted that she was the only “gay republican” she had encountered.

She added that her fans expected her to incline towards the candidate who would endorse gay marriages Subsequently when she had supported former President Trump during his candidacy. To that, she responded by saying, “To me, in this country, there are so many more things that we as a country have to worry about whether or not a candidate supports gay marriage. People are dying, we’ve got Black Lives Matter rallies going on, we’ve got people trying to kill the police for no reason.”

Did You Know?

In 2020, she had uploaded a video mentioning that she was going to her hometown to settle some legal matter and she needed a lawyer. Immediately, her fans responded by assuming that she got into some trouble with the law and was being sued. She assured in the video that, she was not in trouble with the law, but was down to the place because she was up to some exciting project involving, "ponies and horses."
