Molly Templeton (born 25 October 1989), known by her stage name Mememolly (me-me-molly) is a Canadian British Internet personality. She hosted the video blog Rocketboom from July 2009 to July 2011.[1][2]


Templeton started secretly making YouTube videos in her bedroom when she was 16 and eventually her parents found out about it.[citation needed] After a few years working independently in web video and studying fine art at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, she went to New York to host, write and produce at Rocketboom.[3][4] In July 2011 she left Rocketboom and was later employed by My Damn Channel as Director of Talent & Audience Development.[3][5]

Templeton's mememolly channel on YouTube was once No. 10 on the all-time most-subscribed list for the UK.[1] As of September 2014 the channel has over hundred thousand subscribers and 53 million video views.[1][6] She has cited lonelygirl15 as one of her inspirations to start making videos.[citation needed] Her September 2007 video "Are you anybody's favourite person?" was nominated for "Best Commentary video" in the 2007 YouTube Awards.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

Templeton was born and raised in Beaconsfield, England.[1] During the end of February 2007, she moved to Canada with her parents, who had taken work there[citation needed]. Since July 2017, she is married to fellow internet personality Mike Rugnetta.[7] She currently lives in New York.[3]
