Elisa Hansen, a.k.a. Lisa, is a friend and occasional roommate of former TGWTG personality Lindsay Ellis. Elisa helped write videos for The Nostalgia Chick, in addition to having appeared as a cast member for the series, and continues to do so for Lindsay's newer videos after the show had ended. She also has an array of her own original characters, including the beauty-obsessed Makeover Fairy and the unethical scientist Dr. C. Tease.

Outside of The Nostalgia Chick, Elisa hosts Vampire Reviews, as Maven of the Eventide.

Elisa's obsession with The Phantom of the Opera has led to her guest starring in several other shows. Most notably, a cameo she made in Music Movies, in which she pestered Paul Dugan to review another Phantom-related musical after Schumacher's movie, led to her and Paw teaming up for a review of Phantom of the Paradise.

Elisa and Paul began dating and appeared together several times. They eventually teamed up for a Music Movies story arc concerning the Fantasia movies, and alternate dimensions. On November 5th, 2012, it was announced, via Twitter, that the two were engaged. As of October 13th, the two were married. Elisa announced over Twitter that she intends to keep her maiden name. Their son, Grey Ingram Hansen-Schuler, was born on August 13, 2014.

On April 9th, 2018, Elisa left Channel Awesome. She will continue to post videos to her YouTube channel.
