YouTube is pretty much a big deal nowadays. Before it was just viral videos and other stuff, but now it becomes a daily career to most people. Out there, there are billions of YouTubers around the world the popular ones have worked so hard to get to where they are now and possibly higher. Some made millions and billions of dollars out of YouTube, such as Felix Kjellberg AKA PewDiePie. PewDiePie made $7.4 Million alone out of YouTube, he also raised a charity campaign which made millions. I'm pretty sure it's still counting this year.
So many YouTubers out there, so many popular YouTubers out there and some of them are headed down the road of fame to stardom! I'm here to share a list of these 7 YouTubers who are headed down the road to stardom. Before I continue, I would like you to know that these 7 YouTubers are the one I chose from and if you would like to add anyone, simply comment below on other YouTubers who you think are also headed for stardom.
6.Joey Graceffa : 5,228,092 Subscribers
Joey Graceffa is one of those guys who is headed for stardom. He wrote a book called In Real Life which gained fame and become one of the biggest bestsellers in the country (or possibly the world). His YouTube channel is packed with stuff, his latest and (maybe) first music video titled Don't Wait got over 571 748 likes and with only 17 248 dislikes. See for yourself!
If you ask me, I'd say he's already a star. He even has his own web short series called Storytellers which only had like 6 episodes until the finale but still he has one. Moving on...
5.Tyler Oakley : 7,673,030 Subscribers
Tyler Oakley is also headed to stardom but on a different road and not shortcut that's for sure. It'll probably be a long way before he reaches stardom, but let's talk about his fame. Tyler Oakley also wrote a book titled Binge and it also became a bestseller. He went to book tours, book signings and (totally out of the question) he went to The MTV VMA's last year in 2014. I feel sorry for the guy. Why? Well everyone at the 2014 VMA's agreed that Tyler Oakley was the worst dressed at it. This is what he wore
They said he was the worst dressed because his black slacks, black shoes and black shirt didn't go with his purple blazer and hair. With a platinum blonde hair critics agreed it didn't go with his purple blazer. So yeah, it'll definitely be a long way before he reaches stardom.
4.Shane Dawson : 5,606,879 Subscribers (shane channel)
6,987,276 Subscribers (Shane Dawnson TV channel)
Another writer and also the first actor on this list. Shane Dawson wrote 2 books titled I Hate Myselfie and I Hate Myselfie: A Collection of Essays. Shane Dawson also acted in 2 movies, one is Smiley, the movie about a serial killer who wears a smiley stitched mask. He was one of the main characters before his character was killed off. The other movie is Shane Dawson Not Cool which is his own movie. So I guess we could say he's already reached stardom just not the full stardom like the Kardashians or Kanye West. But he's getting there. He has 2 YouTube channels one is like the above titled shane and the other is Shane Dawson TV. Shane Dawson TV is pretty much like a reality show or something like that which would help him with his revenue stream.
3.Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox/Smosh : 21,304,678 Subscribers (Smosh channel)
4,978,911 Subscribers (Smosh 2nd Channel)
Of course these dynamic duo are making their way in the fast lane to stardom. After all they just released their movie titled Smosh: The Movie a few months ago. The movie got a pretty solid 51% on Rotten Tomatoes, 4.5/10 on IMDB and 2/5 stars on Common Sense Media. So it wasn't such a successful movie but it was fun to watch and funny. They said it themselves, the had a lot of fun making it and it also happens to have cameos of some other YouTubers such as Jenna Marbles and Markiplier. I'd rate it a solid 5/10 myself. It's just a matter of time before a director and producer asks them to star in a movie their making.
2.Flula Borg : 672,006 Subscribers
Flula isn't an oh-so-popular YouTuber but he did make a pretty amazing job in Pitch Perfect 2. On his channel Flula mostly makes videos about beat boxing and music and a bit of singing. But after the success of Pitch Perfect 2 he got more subscribers and gained more fame. He even made a video of him jamming out with Anna Kendrick and the rest of the Pitch Perfect 2 cast. Check it out!
Hot jamming with Pitch Perfect 2's very own Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Elizabeth Banks and the rest of the cast. He also made a video of kind of an interview with the movie Trainwreck stars Bill Hader and Amy Schumer.
He's already close to being a star. He's got a future in Hollywood. Who says YouTubers can't act.
1. Felix Kjellberg/PewDiePie : 39,874,161 Subscribers
Felix Kjellberg will be Hollywood's next biggest star. He's already the most popular, richest, most subscribed and best YouTuber on the planet! As I said before he maid $7.4 million last year alone and this year is still counting and getting higher. You might think those are what makes him popular but wait! There's more, so much more. Let's take a look at PewDiePie's achievements shall we?
- Made $7.4 million alone in 2014
- Made a game titled PewDiePie : Legend of The Brofist and it became top 10 highest grossing game defeating Minecraft
- Has a book written and coming out in 20th October 2015 (3 days from now)
So much more but I think I should just tell you here. If you've been keeping up with PewDiePie's channel then you know he went to Los Angeles a few weeks ago to film a "secret project" and from the word "film" we already know he's either appearing on a TV show, movie or has his own TV show planned and kept a secret. Eitherway most people seem to think he's appearing on Fear The Walking Dead because of the filming and the video where he shows his bloody jeans.
TMZ recorded a quick interview when he was in LA asking him about the "secret project". You can check that out here. Other than that he also appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert where he also taught Stephen Colbert some Swedish curse words. PewDiePie also voice acted in Oscar's Hotel for Fantastical Creatures. He and his beautiful girlfriend Marzia Bisgonin lent their voice for the show. Man, PewDiePie is on a roll! While it is still unclear what he did during his time in LA, he said the big announcement is coming soon.
So there you have it the 6 YouTubers who are headed for stardom. I'm pretty sure we can all agree that PewDiePie is in the lead in this fantastic race.
