From comedy to beauty, singing to dance and everything in between
Filipinos have a strong sense of #PinoyPride and while it can sometimes be irrational, there is always a genuine reason for it. So join us as we celebrate some of the best and most talented Pinoys in the digital-verse that is YouTube.
Dee Kosh first joined YouTube in 2006, but didn’t actually post a video until 2011. He grew up in the Philippines but has since settled in Singapore. His videos are mostly about his thoughts and opinions, which are sometimes controversial and borderline offensive. But he does it all in good humor and his viewers generally have a good laugh.
Bretman Rock also grew up in the Philippines before his family relocated to Hawaii. He is most known for his beauty videos, but what really makes him stand out is his sense of humor and how refreshingly unapologetic he is about almost everything—from his choice to highlight his ears to his being gay. Yas kween!
Michelle Dy has received her following from her easy-to-follow makeup tutorials and her tipid makeup hacks. She is a self-confessed ukay queen that knows how to mix up trends with classics and the low-cost with high-end. She’s bubbly, approachable and she has a video out for every occasion
Kristel Fulgar might be a familiar name and face, and this is because she used to star in Goin’ Bulilit. Since then, she has shed her childish antics and developed a killer voice. Her YouTube posts are usually of covers, but they are enjoyable and incredibly catchy. Sometimes she is joined by CJ Navato, who was her co-actor when they were younger. Their voices carry the videos, but it’s also cute to watch them innocently flirt with each other between takes.
Ranz Kyle is the older brother of the adorable Niana. Together, the two rose to YouTube stardom for their dance covers, but they also post pranks, car jams and game reviews. And while they are talented, we beg to argue that their chemistry is what keeps viewers watching. Can anyone say #SiblingGoals?
