In 2017, the quick-witted 18-year-old more than doubled his total number of subscribers, ending the year with well over 5.1M people tuning in to see videos like his series of “FUNNIEST KID TEST ANSWERS!” and “REAL PEOPLE WITH AWFUL NAMES.” He wryly comments on all of them in uploads that gain upwards of 3M views each. This year, he also brought his reactions to ridiculous accounts and scary movies on YouTube, continuing his quest to mine internet content for his own enjoyment, with fans laughing the entire way.
