YouTube makes stars out of ordinary people. It happens every day. In many cases, it’s not intentional, such as with the case of Antoine Dodson and the bedroom intruder. Others such as Jenna Marbles did exactly what they hoped to do – get on YouTube and find an audience for their videos.
The path to YouTube stardom varies from person to person and their success level or notoriety can often follow them for a long time. While it’s too early to say whether or not it can last the rest of their lives (YouTube is just a decade old), for some who have found stardom, it seems to be sticking with them.
In this graphic from Vixy, we explore 20 YouTube celebrities, where they were and where they are now.
