PewDiePie Biography, Career, Net Worth, And Other Interesting Facts

Kjellberg started his YouTube journey in 2006 with the name “Pewdie.” Later he forgot the password and made a new channel called “PewDiePie” in 2010. When he left college his parents stopped supporting him financially. So he did odd jobs like being a harbor captain selling art and working at a hot dog stand to fund his early videos. Making videos was more important to him than having a fancy job.

At first, he focused on commenting on video games, especially horror and action games. Some of his earliest videos were about popular games like Minecraft and Call of Duty but he became famous for playing Amnesia: The Dark Descent and its mods. He felt awkward talking into a microphone alone in his room something uncommon back then.

He started posting weekly vlogs titled Fridays with PewDiePie in 2011 which was different from his usual Let’s Play videos. These vlogs showed his daily life and sometimes fulfilled viewer requests.

By December 2011, he had around 60000 subscribers which grew rapidly in 2012. He reached 1 million subscribers in July 2012 and 2 million in September. In October his channel was ranked as the top YouTube channel. He then partnered with Maker Studios in December.

Early in his career, he made jokes about sensitive topics like rape which stirred controversy. However, he later apologized and stopped making such jokes showing that he listened to feedback and learned from his mistakes.

From YouTube Sensation to Record-Breaking Star

In February 2013, PewDiePie hit 5 million subscribers on his YouTube channel. In April of the same year, he got a shout-out in The New York Times for reaching 6 million subscribers. He won an award in Singapore for being a social media star from Sweden. At the award ceremony, he won the title for the most popular social media show beating out other famous YouTubers.

By July he became the second most-subscribed YouTuber surpassing Jenna Marbles and hit 10 million subscribers in July 2013. In August he joined Maker Studios’ gaming network Polaris. He became the most subscribed YouTuber beating Smosh in August and even got a certificate from Guinness World Records for it.

Later YouTube’s channel became more subscribed than his but by December he was back on top. He was one of the fastest-growing YouTubers in 2012 and 2013 gaining more subscribers than anyone in 2013 according to Billboard.

In 2014, his videos changed a bit. Instead of just playing scary games he played whatever games he liked. YouTube also started categorizing its stars some aiming for traditional media while others like Kjellberg built their fame purely on YouTube.

In March 2014, he announced he would upload videos less often. Maker Studios made a PewDiePie app for iPhones. He also stopped allowing comments on his videos because they were often spammy. He still talked to fans on Twitter and Reddit.

Later that year he allowed comments again but only after he approved them. He began streaming a series with CinnamonToastKen on He hinted he might not stick with Maker Studios but later said he was happy with them.

From Gaming to Memes, Challenges, and YouTube’s Algorithm Frustrations

PewDiePie Biography, Career, Net Worth, And Other Interesting Facts

The New York Times looked back at PewDiePie’s videos around 2015 and noticed a shift. He started taking more risks with his content. While he still played video games he began trying out new things like viral challenges poking fun at other YouTubers and reviewing memes from his fans. PewDiePie himself said this change was partly because he felt bored with just playing games and YouTube’s rules and how they reward creators played a role too. One video that showed this change was him reading some pretty wild fan fiction about characters from Disney’s Frozen. This made the then-CEO of Disney pretty mad and put PewDiePie’s deal with Maker Studios a part of Disney at risk.

In September 2015, PewDiePie became the first YouTuber to hit 10 billion views. He also hinted at being part of a web series called Scare PewDiePie which later premiered on YouTube Red. In 2016 he teamed up with Maker Studios to create a sub-network called Revelmode featuring him and some other YouTubers in original shows.

As time went on PewDiePie’s videos changed even more. He made fewer videos playing horror games and his humor got drier. He also looked back at his older videos and regretted using certain words in a hurtful way. By 2016 his channel was going through some changes and PewDiePie talked about feeling frustrated with YouTube’s system especially when it came to losing subscribers and views without explanation.

Despite some ups and downs, PewDiePie didn’t give up on YouTube. He continued making videos but was vocal about his issues with the platform’s algorithms which he felt were hurting creators’ viewership. He even made videos poking fun at the algorithm changes asking his viewers to help him hit certain milestones like a million likes or dislikes.

Overall PewDiePie’s journey on YouTube has been filled with changes and challenges but he’s managed to stay on top even if things sometimes got a bit rocky.

He later said he didn’t mean harm but wanted to show how crazy things could get online. The video got a ton of negative attention with many criticizing him for making jokes that were hurtful and dangerous.

The Wall Street Journal said this wasn’t the first time Kjellberg had done something like this. He and the two people in the video said sorry but it led to big companies like Maker Studios and Google cutting ties with him.

Later on, Kjellberg’s YouTube channel lost its spot as the most-viewed to an Indian record label. Despite this, he kept making new videos and started a Twitch channel called Netglow where he livestreamed a show called Best Club.

In another incident while playing a game online Kjellberg used an offensive word which got him in a lot of trouble. He apologized but some people were still really mad. Some game developers even said they’d take legal action against him.

In March 2019, Kjellberg talked about a terrorist attack in India on his show Pew News. T-Series removed some songs by Pakistani artists from their channel because of pressure from a political party. Kjellberg didn’t agree with this and was criticized for his comments.

Controversial Promotion of Nimses & Record-Breaking Achievements in 2019

In 2019, PewDiePie faced more controversies. He made a video in June promoting an app called Nimses. The app became popular after he talked about it on his YouTube channel. However, some people got worried about the app’s privacy settings and how it tracks location. They thought it might be a scam because it had a referral program that gave users more points.

The Pirate Party Germany criticized PewDiePie for promoting Nimses saying it could harm a lot of people. The company behind Nimses defended itself saying it wasn’t invading people’s privacy.

PewDiePie responded to the criticism saying it was just rumors and that Nimses wasn’t any worse than other social media apps.

Even though PewDiePie lost his spot as the most subscribed YouTuber and faced criticism he kept getting lots of views especially when he started posting more gaming videos. In June he did a “Gaming Week” where he played games like Minecraft every day. He enjoyed it a lot and decided to make more Minecraft videos afterward.

In October some of Kjellberg’s fans thought YouTube was hiding his channel because they couldn’t find it in search results. YouTube said it was because of a problem with their system maybe because of COVID-19 slowing things down. They said sorry and promised to fix it.
