Best Youtubers

The Contenders: Page 2

How on Earth is this number 285?! He makes excellent points on everything he does and his jokes are absolute gold!

This is a guy who actually really deeply cares for the state of YouTube and unlike many who lets what's wrong with it stay he actually wants those problems to be fixed

He has great points to make and always has clever things to say.

When I have a bad day, he always makes me laugh.

22 SuperMarioLogan

I found SuperMarioLogan when he was at a 100,000 subs and I was with him every step of the way. Honestly logan deserves more than just a million subscribers!

Brilliant. If you watch his older videos with Mama Luigi, it is incredible. I CRIED in a plush series!

This guy is someone you should subscribe to - EpicJake

He spends so much time on his videos and has so many characters. My favourite character is jeffy

Phil deserves to at least be in the top ten. People really underestimate his personality and creativity. First, he's literally been around before YouTube was even a year old, and even from his very first video, he was warm and welcoming and not afraid to be a lil' kooky. It's since been ten years, and he has accomplished so much, and improved the lives of millions. His videos are always original ideas, and consistently inspires YouTube trends. He has such a heavy influence in the YouTuber community. He's extremly creative, even being able to take the simplest idea and create a whole video about it. His style is bright, also very clean cut, and appropriate for any age to watch - as he's aware that even kids as young as six watch him. He's an excellent role model for people - he has such a bright and positive perspective on life, which is an absolute miracle in this day and age in social media. He even met his best friend (Dan Howell/@danisnotonfire) through his channel, pulled him out ...more

As one of the original YouTubers, he definitely deserves more recognition, especially for the challenges he has created. He is way more than just Dan's best friend, he is the creator of the famous 7 Second Challenge, Tumblr Tag, as well as other content that is now ubiquitous. His positive personality, sweet nature, funny sense of humor, and creative mind are apparently not enough to earn him respect, but the shallow viewer or subscriber will overlook or even downright disrespect him in favor of "more conventionally attractive"(and usually very unoriginal) YouTubers. Fortunately, he has a fanbase who adores him and his content, most notably the aforementioned Dan.

Phil deserves to be so much higher, he's so underrated. He is such a wonderful person. Extremely funny, talented, completely and utterly adorable... There isn't even enough words for me to describe just how amazing (oops) Phil is. He always puts a smile on my face, whether I'm watching his videos, or just reading any one of his tweets. Ugh, my little angel bean is just too much. I definitely recommend him to people who haven't seen his videos.

He is sooo funny, I can’t help but laugh when I watch him. His channel has grown a lot and I like the way he improves his videos and puts a lot of effort into them. There so many other things I could say but can’t explain😂 He’s amazing 😍😂

24 Cryaotic

I've watched Cry for many years by now, and I can confidently say (well, as confident as you can get without actually knowing a guy) that he's completely genuine. As another commenter mentioned, Youtube tends to be filled with people that have loud, big, exuberant personalities. At times, all that screaming and amplified reactions can exhaust a viewer. Of course I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with that; I'm just saying that it can be a refreshing break to watch someone with a chill personality for once. The other people writing here seem to have already nailed him down pretty well. In summary, Cry is a chill, humble, genuine, helpful, caring person. That's the very reason why I adore him. It doesn't feel like he puts on a fake persona to appease his fans. He seems like an actual person.

The unique thing about Cry is that, while he respects his viewers, he really only plays games that he thinks he will enjoy. Because of this, he is less jaded than other YouTubers who tend to play what they think their audience wants to see, and it makes for overall a more sincere experience with no fake reactions. He has charming commentary, but allows viewers to experience the game with him rather than just watch him react.

Cry has an awesome voice and manages to keep a stable upload schedule. He's funny and most of all, he doesn't scream annoyingly like a few gamers on YouTube.

The chillest youtuber, not an obnoxious loud mouth like farfromsubtle's Fraser.Just...chill...real chill... - DapperPickle

Doo doo doo doo Banana Bus!

I like watching him play Grand Theft Auto 5 with Wildcat, Delirious, Lui and others.

Honestly he's better than pewdiepie

I swear.. This Guy needs to be higher on the list.. He is really hilarious and I personally believe anyone can find a little humor in his videos. Hell even his new content is amazing!

He makes the most hilarious gaming videos ever.

Why so low? I'd rather have a buffalo take a diarrhea dump in my ear than see him all the way at 39.

Nostaligia Critic, Jontron, and Angry video Game Nerd. Should be 1 2 and 3. They actually Write quality material and have a show. Most others on this list are utter trash. Smosh, Pewdiepie.. It shows you 12 year olds run the internet, just like the music industry

James and Mike's channel is what got me in to YouTube and a pioneer in the gaming section of YouTube.

Same Said for SuperMarioLogan for 4 because like Cinemassacre, Channel Awesome, and Normal Boots SML has their own shows too.

They had a Top 10 Modern Cartoons (about 2010-present). They had Teen Titans Go as an honorable mention, and Steven Universe wasn't even on the list, not even an honorable mention. They actually think that Teen Titans Go is better than Steven Universe, I can't trust them anymore.

Not sure how I feel. They put gravity falls on Top 10 Hated Disney Animated Shows AND Top 10 Cartoon Shows of the 2010s. - dipperpinesfangirl618

Irrelevant top 10's, too many anime top 10's, they even make lists on very small things in video games, movies, etc.

Best top ten youtubers of all. better than TheRichest and he's nicest man in history.

29 Game Theory

Definitely my choice for best YouTuber, as he creates YouTube-centric content (not just the YouTube-based stuff, but the topics he talks about and the way he talks about them is very distinctly YouTube), and what he creates is very well-done. Yeah, some theories are not 100% provable, but Game Theory has never sincerely implied or said that the theories are without holes. He's gone into detail on saying that some of them are more holey than the others, and he's not totally confident in them, but he and his team put TONS of research hours into them. How easy do you think it is to know every aspect of every lore of all or the theories? And, yeah, he has made a few screw-ups, which he's admitted to, but it does seem most detractors are eager to dismiss any explanation. He councils smaller YouTubers on improving and growing their channels. Game Theory is, truly, the best YouTuber.

I absolutely love game theory! Ever since I got back into playing tons of Mario games and other games made by Nintendo, this guy has just been absolutely making my day each and every time I watch him! A lot of people say that he ruins the Mario world, you have to remember that he just likes to stretch the concepts and that makes his videos even more interesting! And most of all to all those haters of Game Theory, you have to remember that his Youtube channel literally says "THEORY" so that's all I have to say.

He doesn't ruin Mario his fans does they don't know what a Theory even is! - Aguythatpeopleignores

Game theory is definitely my favorite channel I've been with game theory for years now before there first hundred thousand there amazing

Matpat has given me so much inspiration for science and I love his own reasoning for starting game theory. Matpat was a man whom was denied any job from others for no reasons. He was lost. So he tries to tell us through his videos that no situations is all white and black all from his own experience and that it is necessary to look at things in a whole different perspective. That is the most intriguing and beautiful reason to be on YouTube. Matpat is also a man whom reminds us that we can do a lot in life and that if we take our time and just see things in a whole new light, our lives may be a changed just a little. I have high hopes that matpat will do great things in the future and that some day, I can meet him in person!

31 Tomska

I also like trains

Come on, do you NOT like trains?

How is he not in the top 10?

Tomska is what Youtube used to be all about - A filmmaker who passionate about bringing to life different and fun ideas. While he may not upload as often as some of the bigger channels, anything he does upload is absolutely brilliant, and I think in that respect he's one of the few creators who causes everyone to stop and listen whenever he brings something new out.

It's also good to see how proffessional he is, especially in a place like YouTube. He always makes sure that the right people are credited, to show any necessary content warnings, and most importantly he treads the fine line of making jokes about sensitive topics in the right way. While lot's of channels often get into trouble, because of a lack of understanding of what their jokes may mean, he seems to carry a very strong understanding of what is right and wrong on Youtube. - demisolia

She's super funny, pretty, has dogs with their own personality and seems like a cool girl to hang out with. Whats not to love

One of the only YouTube's I'm able to watch nowadays. She's sweet, funny, and keeps it real. I appreciate the effort she puts into her videos, and how enjoyable her content is.

Most entertaining girl by just being simple and herself. Such a character..

She's so amazing

33 Ray William Johnson Ray William Johnson Ray William Johnson is an American actor, comedian, producer, director, writer and rapper, who is perhaps best known for his YouTube channel, Ray William Johnson, and his web series on that channel, Equals Three.

I don't know who this is

How is RWJ so low? He's the most entertaining YouTube, like ever. He's created an =3 family & jokes that only the family can understand. He's hilarious, I can never get tired of him

He was the last "real" YouTuber until gaming took over. He's the funniest person I've ever seen on YouTube. I still go and watch his old videos because they are so funny. Definitely the best YouTuber ever.

There's just so much people that don't know about this guy or animation at all and that needs to be different. He's growing really fast and that's how it should be (I discovered him a few months ago) because he's the type of YouTuber that once you find him you watch all of his videos multiple times and want new content immediately (like Nigahiga). Very entertaining (like Nigahiga), only thing that's kind of stupid is the time he needs to make a video (LIKE NIGAHIGA) so I give him a 9/10 (12/10 for effort though, LIKE NIGAHIGA)

Completely hilarious! Never watched anyone else this funny!

I've seen all of his videos I have not seen one that I did not enjoy

Hilarious! Creative! 9.7/10 all the way!

35 Chuggaaconroy Chuggaaconroy

It is pathetic that Chuggaaconroy, the guy who practically defined Let's Playing, is at the 135th place. That's kind of sad.

Chuggaaconroy is one of the best YouTubers, he makes informed let's plays and has a great personality, he should at least be in the top 25.

This is the man who got me to watch YouTube, this can do way better than, already beat the grumps and is catching up to Sean.

I've met Chuggaaconroy twice at Momocon. He's an all around great guy, great Let's Player, and VERY funny. Out of ALL the Youtubers on this list, he's the only one I'm subscribed to right now. Everyone else is either ok, meh, or just plain terrible. Basically, Emile should be #1 on here AND Youtube.

36 Rhett and Link

Yes, yes YES! They actually take time to make their videos both look good while being hilarious at the same time which is becoming a rare quality on YouTube. They may not post regularly but in my opinion that's a lot better than making horrible, unoriginal videos that have enough jump-cuts to give you a migraine. They put quality before quantity and that's just one of the things I love about them!

These guys should be MUCH higher! There is no profanity in their videos except for ear biscuits, they are funny and their videos are very good quality. Sorry Pewdiepie, but these guys are so much better. Their videos are appropriate for all ages.

They should be way higher on this list. They're so much better than Pewdiepie. Not to mention annoying orange which should be last on this list.

I've been watching him since 2013 and that guy is just a bubbly, beautiful ball of life. He's super creative and his videos are just great. His passion for photography is well-integrated into his Tumblr and Instagram feeds. He's also one of the sweetest guys out there, he has a great balance humor and serious topics and he's done campaigns to help better the world. All in all, one of the best YouTubers out there.

Connor is so adorable! He's also one of the most inspiring YouTubers I've ever watched- even my Nana thinks so. He tries his best to help with all he can and just make his subscribers happy... I love Connor so much!

Connor is just the best coffee and cat addict I know, he is always so caring and millions of people live him as much as I do (but not more) and he is always busy doing good for our generation! Oh and he's bae too

My favorite so far
