Jenna Nicole Mourey dominates as the owner of the most popular female run channel on YouTube. Starting out in 2010, her video “How To Trick People Into Thinking You’re Good Looking” racked up over 5.3 millions views in its first week. It is this kind of tongue in cheek humour that has secured her popularity, with her video “How To Avoid Talking To People You Don’t Want To Talk To” being featured in The New York Times. The name “Marbles” comes from Jenna’s dog, Mr. Marbles. Even her dog has 19m subscribers on his very own channel.
Beginning her career on the now extinct short form video platform Vine, Liza Koshy moved over to YouTube in 2013. In a relatively short space of time, Liza has accumulated a massive following for her charming and incredibly funny videos. In 2016 at the age of just 21, she interviewed US president Barack Obama on her channel to encourage voter registration. Liza also stars in her very own YouTube Original series, Liza On Demand.
Formerly known on YouTube as IISuperwomanII, Lilly Singh began her career in 2010.

Singh is the first person of Indian descent to host an American major-broadcast late night show, and embraces her Punjabi heritage on her channel.
