The Meteoric Rise to Stardom

All through his school days, Jim Chapman was a bright student and scored decent grades. At a house party during high school he met Tanya Burr. The two began dating, but he didn’t realize then that she was going to shape his career too! After completing high school, Jim went on to pursue psychology in college. Tanya, who had just begun her YouTube channel, encouraged Jim to create his own account. After watching videos, he began posting about his life, giving advice, and talking to his viewers about music and films. He called his channel ‘j1mmyb0bba,’ which was later renamed. All along, he continued with his education and finally after graduating with a degree in psychology, he took up YouTube full-time as by then he had acquired a large number of subscribers. With so much recognition coming from his first channel, he created his second channel, collaborating with other YouTubers, including his wife, siblings, and friends. He became closely associated with the American YouTube community after he attended ‘VidCon’, ‘Playlist,’ and ‘Summer in the City.' He extended support towards ‘sports relief’ by touring at Liverpool, Birmingham, and Brighton, along with his band of boys called ‘YouTube Boyband.’ He was voted No.1 on the ‘Best Dressed’ list by GQ magazine.
