Cobra Kai’s Tanner Buchanan tells us his “first” everything! From his first concert to the first time he was recognized in public, Tanner spills all of his firsts. How old was he when he bought his first car? Was he a Cheetah Girls stan? What was his honest first impression of his Cobra Kai castmates?

It’s funny i’m wearing this shirt because the first concert i attended um was the cheetah girls concert uh when i was young i loved the cheetah girls i guess now we’re representing today hey teen vogue i’m tanner buchanan and today i’m going to be sharing some of my firsts with you uh the first thing i do every day is make sure i get coffee coffee is number one and

It’s the first thing i have to do when i get up otherwise i will have a headache for the rest of the day just straight black coffee that’s all i need a lot of times i go to starbucks which can add up quite a bit even though it’s just black coffee sometimes i try to make it at home but a lot of times i’m lazy and it also gives me time to wake up because i like to

Drive and listen to music before i get my coffee the first big purchase i probably made um i think was when i was 12. i’m a big car and motorcycle guy so the first big purchase i bought was a 1969 chevelle at 12 years old it wasn’t running or anything but it was a project car and i’m i’m still not done with it but we’re getting there i just have to find the time

Uh first car i drove i mean i grew up in a small town in ohio and i felt like we were always driving all kinds of things like tractors and combines and go-karts and dirt bikes but i remember when i learned to drive like a car car like truly learned i learned on a jeep it was stick shift my parents wanted me to learn manual before automatic so that was kind of the

Car i learned then and then the first car that i had when i was 16 was a truck it was a gmc canyon that’s what i had um my first audition was a commercial audition i believe for acura i just literally had to be able to ride a bike and i rode a bike for like 10 hours it was an awesome day it’s obviously super exciting because like i said all i had to do was ride

A bike all day so that was easy peasy for me and a lot of fun and then i just also remember being mesmerized by how much free food you could have and you got lunch and all kinds of stuff so i i love that the first place i saw myself on tv was a commercial i actually think it was at my cousin’s house i think i remember going oh my god that’s the commercial that’s

Me and even though everybody knew i had done it it went by so fast and i think they didn’t think it looked like me because i had a helmet on um they’re like no that’s not you and i was like no i swear i did that i know i worked it i rode a bike for 10 hours i know i did that that was me luckily enough it like popped back on like 30 minutes later they’re like oh

That was you i was like yeah i know i know what i did i feel like my i usually call my parents like my mom or my dad if something important is happening in my life or something important happens uh good or bad they seem to be the first people a lot the first famous person that followed me on social media i don’t know i actually i don’t i don’t i don’t know

Who my followers are to be honest so i don’t know i actually don’t know i don’t know many people that follow me i guess i just don’t pay attention to social media as much or followers or anything like that i just kind of like to scroll through it and just post what i like to post so i i don’t know the first time i was truly star struck was one of the the first

Couple years i was out in california someone had tickets to a taping of wizards of waverly place um and i got to go and i remember sitting in the audience and i was just so mesmerized by selena gomez i absolutely loved her and then after i got to go down on the floor and i got my picture taken with her i got my picture taken with everybody else but she was the one

That mattered at the time and i actually wore a white shirt and i had everybody sign the shirt and i still have that shirt framed with the pictures of me beside them to this day it’s at my parents house actually i think it’s still hanging out it was the end of kindergarten the start of first grade ah i’ve not talked to her in years uh it was lexi hazelman wow i

Do remember that i think i remember on the first day of uh first grade after kindergarten i bought her like a little like bracelet or something a present like put it on her desk first celebrity crush i don’t selena gomez maybe maybe seems like one yeah this is selena gomez the first time i was recognized like out in public i was doing a show called designated

Survivor and it shot up in toronto and i didn’t have a car first off because i think i started it when i wasn’t even 16. but i was going to set by myself i was taking like uh public transportation and i they were going out to a location and i ended up having to take the bus um so i got off the subway got on the bus and i got on and the bus driver actually

Recognized me but i remember walking on and he like looked at me odd and i didn’t know if he thought like he was clocking me like i was gonna do something bad and then i got off and he said hey i was like yeah yeah yeah what did i do he was like you’re on a you’re on tv aren’t you i was like yeah i was like yeah that’s how i am he’s like designated survivor i was

Like uh-huh this is where i’m going right now i’m going to set so i think that’s the first time the first time i felt like i was getting the hang of karate on the show was probably season two in the first season it kind of felt like it was just like me and sholo starting off but season two i feel like we really started to catch on and i felt like i got a hold of

It and knew more what i was doing and and how to get into it and everything i think i’ve always walked away and i go well then i could have done way better i’m very hard on myself i’m usually disappointed in myself because i want it to be better every time everyone seemed like a lot of fun and everyone seemed extremely nice i actually was very secluded for most

Of the first season from everybody else and why i kept it that way i i don’t i don’t know i think it was just i was young and again didn’t have a car of the first season so i just stayed at home and went to set i worked with obviously ralph a lot and he’s just a great person to be around at all times he’s just the nicest guy in the world as is everyone else so

We’re like a little family so it’s really really cool a lot of times sometimes i go to goof off how and annoy other people it seems as though i just like i like to be around people i like to talk to a lot of people but usually i get in trouble because i have to go change out a wardrobe i forget to do that a lot so the first thing i do is go and change out a

Wardrobe so everybody can get off the clock and go oh they hope our wardrobe frank uh he doesn’t watch us we usually get like socks every time you know for the character and stuff uh so i don’t think i’ve paid for socks in about five or six years a lot of times at the end of the day i just leave the socks that i have on in the scene and just end up taking them

Home and then i have an extra pair of socks i just that i have and i just throw them in my pocket so i have a lot of socks
