Behind The YouTuber Jacksepticeye

Seán William McLoughlin more famously known as Jacksepticeye was born February 7, 1990, in Dublin, Ireland. On February 24, 2007, Jack made his first YouTube account that made him become famously known as Jackseptickeye. Jack first posted gaming lets play videos. In 2013 another YouTuber named PewDiePie (also a YouTuber I’ve talked about) mentioned Jack in one of his videos. Being mentioned in one of PewDiePie’s videos helped Jack very much starting off, and this really showed when Jack went from 2,500 subscribers to 15,000 subscribers in just four days. Sometime in July of 2014, Jack had 57 million views in total on his channel. Around that same time, Jack had gained 800,000 subscribers.

In February of 2015, Jack had a total of 1 billion views and 3.2 million subscribers. In January of 2016, Jack had been one of the top featured YouTubers on PewDiePie’s network website Revelmode. Jack was a featured guest star on PewDiePie’s YouTube Red show “Scare PewDiePie”, but the season was canceled due to the controversy surrounding PewDiePie. In June of 2017, Polaris (a Disney division) is going to give Jack a show on Disney XD called “Player Select”. In January of 2018, Jack announced that he would be making exclusive content on Twitch because of a multi-year deal with Disney.

Jack has a total of 20 million+ subscribers on YouTube as of now. I and all of Jacks fans hope that his channel will keep growing

Behind The YouTuber/Twitch Streamer: Tyler (Ninja) Blevins

Tyler Blevins more famously known as Ninja or NinjasHyper was born on June 5  in Detroit Michigan but was moved to the Chicago suburbs. In 2009 Tyler professionally started to play Halo 3 and played on multiple tournament teams such as Cloud 9, Renegades, Team Liquid, and Luminosity Gaming in 2017. In 2011 Tyler became a full-time Twitch streamer under the username “Ninja”. Ninja became known for playing BR (Battle Royale) Games. If you don’t you know what a Battle Royale game is the think of something like The Hunger Games. Tyler started playing H1Z1, then PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds), then know what he’s most famously known for playing Fortnite Battle Royale.

 In September of 2017 Ninja got 500’000 followers on Twitch. Ninja has played with a variety of people on Fortnite like fellow Twitch streamers, YouTubers, and even musicians. As of now, Ninja has 11+ million followers on Twitch and hopefully, Tyler’s Twitch channel will keep on growing. Ninja does have a YouTube channel but I kind of wanted to switch things up so I did this.

Behind The Youtuber (MatPat)

 

 

     Matthew Robert Patrick or more famously known as MatPat was born November 15, 1986. Matthew made his first YouTube account in 2009 as “MatthewPatrick13”. Matthew’s first videos were musical performances and auditions. On April 18, 2011, he started his first and as of now most successful channel (The Game Theorist) where he analyzes video games and tries to solve theories with science. Along with his channel The Game Theorist he created his “show” Game Theory. Game Theory’s episodes cover Nintendo characters and games such as Minecraft, FNAF (Five Nights at Freddy’s), Call Of Duty, Pokemon, and many more.

       In 2014 Matthew created his second and ironically his second most popular channel Film Theory. Matthew uploaded his first video to Film Theory on June 2, 2015.  Like Game Theory, Film Theory takes something very unrealistic or a very commonly asked question and tries to solve it with science. Film Theory has 6+ million subscribers as of now and like Game Theory keeps encountering more questions that he will try his best to answer. Although  Film Theory tries to put logic into all films they mostly focus on the genre of SCI-FI, think of Star Wars or the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).

    Last but not least we have Matthew’s third and final channel GTLive. GTLive (Game Theory Live) is just Matthew and his wife Stephanie playing video games Live. GTLive was created August 26, 2015. Matthew and Stephanie usually start their live streams at 4 pm PST. Hopefully Game Theory, Film Theory, and GTLive all continue and live on for a very long time.

Behind The YouTuber Markiplier

 

        Mark Edward Fischbach aka Markiplier was born June 28, 1989, in Honolulu, Hawaii. Mark made his first YouTube account on March 6, 2012, and posted his first video on April 4, 2012. Mark made his first ever “Let’s Play” series for the horror game Amnesia. After Mark had played multiple game series such as Penumbra and Dead Space YouTube decided to take Marks ad revenue (earnings from sponsorship advertisements). After that Mark lost sponsorship companies interest and people stopped wanting to sponsor him.

After losing all ad revenue Mark decided to create a new account called MarkiplierGAME, which was created on May 26, 2012. In 2014 Mark’s channel was listed on a site called New Media Rockstars in the top 100 list as number 61. The same year Mark announced that he was moving to Los Angeles California. In 2014 Mark and fellow YouTuber Jenna Mae both were guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live. In 2015, Mark’s channel was number six on a list of 20 celebrities that were the most influential to teenagers.

In late 2015 mark had reached 10 million subscribers on YouTube. As of now, Mark has 21+ million subscribers and we all hope that Marks channel will keep on growing.

Behind The YouTuber PewDiePie

 

We all know about the ever-growing social media site YouTube and the content creators on it. We all have our favorite YouTubers and types of content. Maybe you like reaction channels or maybe you’re into animation, or maybe you’re into history or sports, but whatever you’re into there is most likely something on YouTube for you. If you’ve never been on YouTube you should check it out. Anyway, today’s YouTuber is PewDiePie. Felix Ulf Kjellberg was born in Gothenburg, Sweden, on October 24, 1989. During Felix’s time in college, he made his first account on Youtube in 2010 which would lead him down a path of success called PewDiePie.

Felix dropped out of college the same year because he wanted to entertain the people of YouTube. Felix knew that in order to have a successful career he had to fund his videos including his channel. Felix sold Photoshop art pieces and worked at a hotdog stand to raise extra funds. In July of 2012, Felix had gotten over one million subscribers. August 5th, 2013 Felix had become the channel with the most subscribers on YouTube, this had continued for the next 46 days.

Felix has now reached 80+ million subscribers as of January 2019 and hopefully will keep on growing.
