Finalist in YouTuber of the Year

About David Dobrik

David Dobrik is “Sexy, Gorgeous, and Humble.” The former Vine star more than doubled his YouTube subscriber count in 2017, nearing the 6M subscriber mark. Every other weekday he posts vlogs that feature him and his friends, a group of other popular ex-Viners now known as the Vlog Squad. Whether he’s messing with them, surprising strangers, or just hanging out, David’s videos are easy to binge as each lasts only four minutes and twenty seconds. His second channel, David Dobrik Too, features non-vlog collaborations with friends, and boasts 3M+ subscribers of its own. Born in Slovakia, David made headlines this year by noting that immigrants like him will be deported if the DACA program gets repealed and promoting efforts to renew the Dream Act.
