Birth Place

It was fellow YouTube star Bryan Odell, a.k.a. BryanStars, who inspired Johnnie Guilbert to join YouTube. While Johnnie was interested in alternative music, Bryan used to host interviews with popular artists in the alternative scene. He created his channel in September 2013. He was influenced by the type of contents YouTubers like DeeFizzy and BryanStars posted. He uploaded his first video named “ATTACKED BY ZOMBIES!!! Johnnie Guilbert VLOG #1” on November 16, 2013. From there onwards, he collaborated with BryanStars on a number of videos and started to post on his YouTube channel regularly. He has already managed to gain 776k subscribers on YouTube. However, his most followed social media account is Instagram with 990k followers.

The Meteoric Rise To Stardom

Johnnie Guilbert is a multitalented artist who considers himself a YouTube video creator, musician, vlogger and an actor. However, he made great efforts to realize his goals. Johnnie, who has been suffering from depression since he was 9 years old, took the YouTube platform to openly talk about his experiences and how he coped with his issues. As a dyslexic child, growing up was not easy for him. He was not very much interested in the things his school had to offer. He always wanted to go after entertainment or music. He also used to get bullied for dressing differently than other kids. He would often wear hats and skinny jeans. Around the time he was nine, his father was diagnosed with cancer. When his father died on December 7, 2010, it cast him into a long period of depression. It eventually became so severe that he had to go through therapy once every three days for about 3-4 years. During this period, he even became suicidal and not only hurt himself, but also thought about killing himself more than once. His optimistic nature helped him survive the hardest moments of his life. As he joined YouTube and started to gain love and recognition, he opened up to his followers and shared with them the dark times he had to go through. In his videos, he conveys the message to his fans that no matter how difficult life may seem, one should push through it as good things are bound to come.

What Makes Johnnie So Special

Johnnie Guilbert used to share an apartment with fellow YouTube star BryanStars who helped him a lot with his videos during his early years on YouTube. They even created a collaborative channel, "My Digital Escape," along with other popular YouTubers. However, Bryan soon started to take over the channel as the general manager, which didn't please the contributors of the channel, including Johnnie himself. In May 2016, the group officially disbanded. However, a few months later, in September 2016, Bryan posted a teaser on "My Digital Escape" channel, indicating MDE 2.0 will be launching soon. This caused a huge controversy and the former group members, as well as other famous personalities who knew the original team, started to criticize Bryan's efforts. Johnnie, who was close to Bryan initially, posted a video on his channel explaining to his fans how Bryan caused the break up in the first place, without taking his name. He also criticized his former friend and roommate for using others to earn money. Bryan eventually backed off, apologizing for the hurt he has caused to his friends.
