JillianTubeHD is an American YouTuber and social media influencer with over a million subscribers on her channel as of March 2018. As her parents have decided to keep their surname a secret due to security reasons, she is known online simply as Jillian. The younger sister of YouTuber EvanTubeHD—one of the most successful and popular young creators on the platform—Jillian set up her own channel in March 2013. However, she waited until January 2016 to upload her first video. Since then, her personal image as a social media influencer has grown slowly but steadily and she has found her own audience beyond the spotlight of her brother’s fame. She mostly posts challenge videos, vlogs, and piano recitals.
The Meteoric Rise to Fame
The family’s journey to internet stardom began in late 2011, when Evan approached his father, who is an amateur filmmaker, about a potential YouTube channel. Initially, for both of them, it was a way of bonding with each other. The channel, EvanTubeHD, was set up on September 20, 2011, and they posted their first video that very day. Since then, the channel has grown exponentially, garnering over 5 million subscribers. They have also launched four more channels, EvanTubeRaw (for vlogging), EvanTubeGaming (for gaming), DTSings (for music), and Jillian’s JillianTubeHD.
Jillian made her first appearance in April 2012 on her brother’s channel, where she was introduced by her current social media name, JillianTubeHD.
On March 11, 2013, when she was only four years old, her parents decided to set up a channel for her and name it after her online persona JillianTubeHD. The idea was to attract the younger audience members who were not that interested in Evan’s content, which primarily focused on toys, gaming, and challenges. It proved to be a smart and sensible move. Jillian, with her natural charm and charisma, began to attract young girls—who find in her an ideal same-aged role model—to her channel.
In January 2018, she reached one million subscribers and as of March 2018, she has just over 1 million 86 thousand subscribers. Besides YouTube, Jillian is not that active on other platforms of social media although her parents have set up a Facebook page for her.
