Comedian, dog lover and vlogger extraordinaire Jenna N. Mourey (Jenna Marbles) is now the third YouTube creator in history to cross the 10-million subscriber mark. The Jenna Marbles channel joins previous 10-million sub-holders Smosh and PewDiePie.
Since joining in 2010, Mourey has risen to become one of YouTube’s most prolific creators with popular uploads such as “How to Trick People Into Thinking You’re Good Looking,” which currently has over 53 million views.
Although incredibly successful, Mourey seems committed to the platform that helped her rise to international fame. Variety reports that when approached with several television deals, the YouTube creator turned them down, saying: “I have had a lot of cool offers to move into traditional media but I’m not completely sold I have to do that.”
Mourey is also a strong supporter of the creative freedom that comes with a creator-driven platform like YouTube. “I can do whatever I want, say whatever I want,” Mourey explained to Variety. “… The coolest thing on YouTube is nobody owns you.”
