YouTube star Jack Massey Welsh (UK) has completed his mission of earning the Guinness World Records title for the most YouTube channels with over 100,000 subscribers owned by an individual.
Documenting his progress on his main YouTube channel titled JackSucksAtLife, Jack went through the standard application process of creating a new record title in front of his 1.43 million subscribers.
Over time, he has created and gained over 100,000 subscribers on seven additional channels including JackSucksAtGeography, JackSucksAtPopUpPirate and SamSmellsOfApricots.
In accordance to our guidelines, all channels had to have at least five videos uploaded with over 50,000 views on each.
The last channel, created in Jack’s most recent Guinness World Records video, is named JacksEpicYoutubeChannelFullOfFunTimesAndFunHiRickX.
Rick is a YouTube employee who sends creators plaques once their channel hits 100,000 subscribers.
Beginning his internet career in 2013, Jack mainly focused on Minecraft content before transitioning into the commentary style he is known for today.
His most popular video to date is a Minecraft Mod Showcase which has over 5.7 million views since it was posted in July 2013.
“I enjoyed making videos even before I knew YouTube existed! It's an amazing feeling having the freedom to record and upload whatever you want and get instant feedback from so many people” - Jack Massey Welsh
Minecraft is an open world game and holds the record for the best-selling videogame of all time with over 176 million copies sold as of March 2019.
When beginning his quest to enter our archives, Jack applied to enter as the holder of the most YouTube play buttons – this was rejected by our records team as these buttons are available to be purchased.
"A couple of months ago I managed to get my hands on a Diamond Play Button even though I only have 1,000,000 subscribers."
"These awards are normally reserved for channels with 10,000,000 subscribers so it was amazing to get to see one in person when they're so rare!"
Jack joins other YouTubers in the Guinness World Records archives including Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg, who became the first YouTuber to reach 50 million subscribers and the first YouTube channel to surpass 10 billion views, and Hamako Mori, also known as Gamer Grandma, who is the oldest gaming YouTuber at 89 years old.
