Sasha Spielbergsausasha, 5 million subscribers

How did Russian YouTube stars gain popularity and how have they changed over the years Recently, the whole country learned about Sasha Spielberg when she made a speech in the State Duma about the interaction of authorities and youth. Such a high podium was provided to her through the patronage of Alexander Balkovsky's father, co-owner of the Z-Agency studio, which is engaged in advertising and promotion in social networks and on YouTube.

It is clear that Sasha's channel, in fact, is Dad's project. The content is aimed at girls gradually reaching puberty. 19-year-old Sasha shares her "secrets", talks about the lipstick she bought and explains why striped blouses are cool. The oldest video preserved on the channel is a commercial for a clothing brand. According to his father, Sasha now earns more than a million rubles a month on such projects.

How did Russian YouTube stars gain popularity and how have they changed over the years 21-year-old Vanya Rudskoy from the Ukrainian village of Alexandria (now lives in Moscow) has made an incredible breakthrough by the standards of Russian YouTube. He has collected ten million subscribers in three years and now leads the rating of the most viewed domestic YouTubers. Recently, Vanya was even invited to the show "Evening Urgant".

He started with letsplays for the Minecraft game, and won the audience thanks to videos in which he puts wasabi in his nostrils, shaves his head, shows unsuccessful tricks and wraps himself with tape. One of the first videos on the channel where Eeoneguy appears in person — a review on goat simulator.

Maxim Gololosovadamthomasmoran, 8.3 million subscribers

How did Russian YouTube stars gain popularity and how have they changed over the years About seven years ago, Muscovite Maxim Gololosov (a cook by education) essentially copied the format of the popular American blogger Ray William Johnson. He was reviewing funny videos from the Internet, standing in front of a catchy background and swearing profusely. Max called his show +100500.

At first, the sound and video quality left much to be desired, but the charisma of the presenter overcame these shortcomings with a vengeance. The first issue of the show was presented to Runet by the legendary meme about the St. Petersburg showdown. Since then, Max has launched dozens more memes, expanded the tunnels in his ears, grew a thicker beard and cut his hair shorter.

Stas Davydovthisisnosho, 5.8 million subscribers

How did Russian YouTube stars gain popularity and how have they changed over the years Latvian Stas Davydov does about the same thing as Gololosov. But he prefers to make do with censorship vocabulary and clearly follows the script of the same Ray William Johnson: in one issue he talks about three videos, asks viewers to send him new videos for review and actively wool comments on witty remarks, which he then inserts into the show.

The first edition of the ThisIsHorosho show was filmed in 2012 with disgusting lighting and a weak script. That's probably why Stas deleted it from the official channel.

She started mastering YouTube in 2008 with the creation of the FoggyDisaster channel. There you can also find a video where 13-year-old Katya with purple bangs does all sorts of stupid things in front of the camera.
