YouTube is goldmine of video content that has grown rapidly over the past few years thanks to the popularity of smart phones and our attachment to all things social media. On YouTube, many content creators and channels are able to quit their day-to-day jobs and make producing content for their YouTube channel(s) a full time gig. Channels that are able to gain a partnership with YouTube and use Google Ad Sense to their channel stand to make a comfortable amount of money each month. Additionally, some channels gain endorsements through various companies related to that channel’s niche, allowing the creator or host to reap additional rewards. Most YouTube celebrities are famous not because they uprooted their lives and moved out to L.A. or Manhattan, but because they consistently produce good content that keeps their viewers coming back for more. This unique formula of quality content paired with passionate creators allows for a celebrity that viewers can feel more intimately connected to. With a good camera, internet connection, some editing software (which comes standard on most computers) and plenty of quality content, a YouTube star can be made. While these celebrities often have to work years to gain their status, once they reach the top, their limits are endless. The following YouTube celebrities are popular for a wide variety of reasons, some channels promote entertainment, others focus on health and fitness and some simply share their lives in a way that inspires viewers to kick ass in their own lives.

2 MyHarto (Hannah Hart)
1 Vlogbrothers (Hank and John Green)
Brothers Hank and John Green started their Vlogbrothers channel as a way to be able to communicate via video blogs every day for a year instead of using email or text messages. The project was called Brotherhood 2.0 and through the success of the project, Vlogbrothers has steadily gained momentum over the years. Hank Green has a background in science and his brother John Green is a novelist (author of The Fault in Our Stars). While John has continued his writing career as a novelist, Hank has become a successful entrepreneur thanks to the connections and fame the brothers have gained through their Vlogbrothers channel. The channel itself has no set narrative. The brothers discuss everything from politics to thoughts they have about life and almost anything else they find relevant. Through the help of the massive Vlogbrothers following known as Nerdfighteria (made up of fans called Nerdfighters), Vlogbrothers Hank and John Green have created an annual world relief effort called The Project for Awesome that allows participating voters to nominate and vote for worthwhile causes. Vlogbrothers has paved the way for YouTube channels like The Brain Scoop, SciShow and Crash Course. Through their celebrity status, the Greens show us that ordinary people can change the world, but that sometimes you just need to be an everyday person and challenging your brother to do something both humbling and hilarious.
