Alex Wassabi is a content creator and actor. He is also a YouTube blogger on the very popular channel Wassabi Productions. The channel has gained over 10 million subscribers. He also runs his personal channel, which has over two million subscribers. Alex began his YouTube career in 2005 and has been described as one of the fast-rising Filipino-American YouTube bloggers.
As an actor, he played the role of Allen in the movie Boo 2! A Medea Halloween in 2017, the year before he appeared as himself in 10 episodes of the television show Escape the Night. He also starred in Laid in America and This is How We Never Made Out.
Alex has been called a class clown from a very young age; he attended middle school in Durham, North Carolina. Together with his best friend RoiFabito and some others, he created video content in 2005. Their station was called Hoiistroi but switched to Wassabi Productions. Originally, videos were only for their own entertainment until they gradually began to gain a following. Soon others left the station, leaving Roi and Alex in their charge. Their first big success was the video Define Friend in 2009, and in April 2012 their parody of Call Me Maybe made a big impression with over a million views in a short time. In 2017 it had reached over 125 million views.
They moved from their hometown to Los Angeles and moved into an apartment with some other YouTubers. They called the apartment “Haunted Mansion”. Until January 2016, they made more interesting videos, which they published every Wednesday in the series “Wassabi Wednesdays”. Later, both agreed to shoot the videos separately, with Roi giving Alex complete control of Wassabi Productions.
He moved back to the Philippines and founded his own channel called “Guava Juice”. Alex now has several features in his videos, including his family and girlfriend. The two remained friends and from time to time appear on each other’s channel.
