I’ve been watching youtubers since I was about 11 or 12 years old. I must admit, I don’t watch them as often as I did but I do still keep up with what they’re doing and support them. These four youtubers have made a massive impact on my life and I’ve learnt a lot from them. So, drop everything that you’re doing, read this blog post, then check all these people out because they’re awesome human beings:
1. Grace Helbig
Beginning as DailyGrace, then leaving myDamnChannel and starting itsGrace in 2014, Grace Helbig is one of my favourite YouTubers. She has an extremely awkward sense of humor, making her popular and relatable. Not only does she do YouTube, she’s written two books (Grace’s Guide: The Art of Pretending to Be a Grown-Up and Grace & Style: The Art of Pretending You Have It), makes a podcast (Not Too Deep), done her own TV show on E! AND made two movies (Camp Takota and Dirty 30) with her friends Hannah Hart and Mamrie Hart.
This chick is amazing.
2. Hannah Hart
Hannah Hart was one of the very first YouTubers I ever watched. Not only is she hilarious, she also offers a lot of valuable advice for LGBT+ people. She started doing YouTube with ‘My Drunk Kitchen’, which is pretty much self-explanatory. She would get drunk in her kitchen and cook ‘food’ and make bad puns. Since then she’s written two books (My Drunk Kitchen: A Guide to Eating, Drinking, and Going With Your Gut and Buffering: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded, which comes out October 18th), made two movies with her friends Grace Helbig and Mamrie Hart (Camp Takota and Dirty 30), and she’s now working on her own television show on The Food Network.
3. Mamrie Hart
(Just FYI, Mamrie Hart and Hannah Hart aren’t related) I don’t know who I love more, Mamrie or her dog, Beanz. Mamrie Hart has a background of improv, writing a performing sketches at the Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City. She’s most commonly known for her YouTube show ‘You Deserve a Drink’, where she’ll make a drink for someone, or something, that deserves a drink. The videos are filled with pop-culture references and bad puns. Since starting her channel in 2011, she has won multiple awards. She’s also written a book, You Deserve a Drink: Boozy Misadventures and Tales of Debauchery along with writing, producing and acting in Camp Takota and Dirty 30 with Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart.
4. Jenna Marbles
Jenna Marbles is the most subscribed to woman on YouTube, topping at over a whopping 16 million subscribers (3 and a half times the population of New Zealand!!!!!). She lives with her boyfriend, Julian and their three dogs, Marbles, Kermit and Peaches. She uploads a video every Wednesday or Thursday. Jenna Marbles is hilarious and knows exactly what she’s doing. She has a brand of dog toys, hosts a weekly pop countdown on SiriusXM and this year became the executive producer for Maximum Ride. Jenna Marbles is, and will continue to be, one of my all time favourite youtubers.
