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.

What Makes Jim Chapman So Special
He is tall, lean, and chiseled. He is every girl’s dream boy. Style comes naturally to him; as a teenager he wasn’t that handsome, but his handsome genes kicked-in towards the end of high school. He knows what to wear and what to say at the right time, and the right place. He did break the hearts of his female fans when he married the gorgeous Tanya Burr, but most of his fans were happy since he was always dedicated to his relationship and proved that he was a “one-woman man.” He is hard-working and entertains his viewers by uploading new videos every day.
Being the fashion star that he is, one would wonder what he loves wearing the most, and Jim has an answer to that: suits and formal wear. He looks spectacular in them. His favorite color is green. He also loves reading and watching Marvel comics; his favorite superhero is Spiderman. He likes the television show 'Dexter,' but hates the long wait between two seasons. Jim loves dogs and penguins. He owns a Dachshund, named Martha. Two things he doesn’t like are waking up early in the morning, and being surrounded by mess. He is also an artist and loves sketching.
Behind the Curtains
Jim was born in Norwich. He has a twin brother named John; they are fraternal twins. Jim has two elder sisters, Samantha and Nicola.
