Is Patty Mayo Fake? Popular YouTube star Patty Mayo rose to huge fame and success after he started producing thrilling content on YouTube. Viewers loved his Dirty Harry-style exploits that involved some intense action shots like cuffing criminals chasing down absconders while also taking on flamethrower-wielding suspects.
Patty Mayo initially grabbed attention after he starred in a prank video poster in 2013. In an early interview, Patty revealed that he had this French character called Ze Oil Boy while calling it ridiculous but comical.
However, with time, Mayo’s YouTube channel was a huge success, with his videos garnering a whopping 1 billion total views. He even boasts video titles like Me vs. a 280Ib bodybuilder and How MMA Girl Tries to Tap Him and other videos that are a hit amongst viewers. Let us find out whether Patty Mayo is fake or not.
Is Patty Mayo Fake?
It seems like Patty Mayo is fake, after all. The popular show Bounty Hunters seemingly is not authentic enough as the sheriff’s uniform and badge that Mayo wears in his videos is not real and is actually a costume. Not only that, but every one seen in his videos is either part of his production crew or a paid actor.
Patty Mayo himself confirmed the same while saying in an early interview that they are not sheriff’s officers while pointing out that the intent is to create a production and not to commit a crime.
Patty further added that this is the reason why he purchased the cars for this show or any equipment, as they even sat down with the police department and explained to them that this is what they would like to do.
The Oregon State Sheriff’s Association has further cleared up the air by stating that Mayo is not a member of law enforcement and is not affiliated in any way with any Sheriff’s Office in Oregon as well.
The statement that the association issued further stated that Oregon law is very specific in what constitutes ‘Impersonating a Police Officer’ and also clearly stated that making YouTube videos with paid actors does not violate that law in any way.
However, the Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association and Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office continue to scrutinize and monitor Patty Mayo’s activities in Deschutes County to maintain Oregon laws.

While Patty Mayo gained huge success for his videos, the social media star took a brief hiatus back in 2017. However, the hiatus was rather short-lived, as Patty soon returned in the following year.

Mayo explained that it is just something that he thought he would be good at as he saw a lot of people on YouTube starting to make money, and he thought this is something he could do as he just admittedly fell in love with YouTube and creating and putting stuff out there and loves to see what people thought about it.
