Which of the Most Famous YouTubers Are You?
Who is the most popular YouTuber around the world? Based on how many million subscribers YouTube channels accumulated, the individual answer is PewDiePie at 110 million YouTube subscribers. His YouTube Channel differentiated itself through polarizing play videos. The most popular American YouTuber is Jimmy Donaldson, better known as Mr. Beast. His YouTube channel features outrageous challenges, tests, money giveaways, occasional gameplay videos, and other forms of eclectic entertainment.
If we step away from these metrics, UpUpDownDown owner Xavier Woods makes a compelling argument for being the best-known YouTube personality. He wrestles for the global sports entertainment juggernaut World Wrestling Entertainment, which is a billion-dollar pop-culture fixture. YouTube personality Dude Perfect’s extensive ESPN exposure grants them high visibility too.
Much like the aforementioned names’ content, this quiz uses goofy personality quirks and scenarios in the name of entertainment to determine which of the popular YouTubers you are. We also included one of the top YouTubers of the investment/personal finance space, Graham Stephan, so those with their mind on their money get an agreeable return.
Famous YouTubers have helped YouTube gain immense popularity over the years. YouTube started in 2005. A Nike advertisement featuring Brazilian football player Ronaldinho kicked off YouTube's popularity around the world, becoming the first YouTube video with 1 million views. Music videos, life hacks, comedic videos, and gameplay videos became some of YouTube's core categories that remain extremely popular today. One of the first videos on YouTube to reach extreme popularity was the music video for singer Justin Beiber's "Baby." The zany music video for musician Psy's "Gangnam Style" became the first video to reach 1 billion views.
In recent years, the people behind the videos are as important as the content itself. Popular YouTubers become their own media personality. For example, Logan Paul and his brother Jake crossed into professional boxing and Disney. Dude Perfect became a staple on ESPN for their trick shot mastery. Dangerous outdoorsman Coyote Peterson parlayed showing the effects of dangerous creature bites into one of the biggest shows on Animal Planet, "Brave the Wild." Known for his gaming videos, Rubén Doblas Gundersen, better known as El Rubius, is one of the biggest Twitch stars, with the third-most followers on the platform. There are also many YouTubers famous for their comedy videos, including Liza Koshy and Lilly Singh.
