How the channel started Edit
Robinett began posting videos on YouTube in mid-2006. Initially, he posted videos as the character "renetto", "a squeaky-voiced, intellectually challenged reviewer of others' YouTube videos." Robinett gained greater notoriety with a video called "Diet Coke+Mentos=Human experiment: EXTREME GRAPHIC CONTENT" posted in August 2006, in which he placed a large quantity of Mentos in his mouth and drank Diet Coke at the same time, and implied that he suffered serious injury as a result. The video received over one million views within 24 hours of being released.
The Journey Edit
He was once ranked on YouTube's "most subscribed"(41st All Time) list.
Robinett was nominated for the first YouTube Video Awards. He is also an official partner in YouTube's revenue sharing program.
Robinett is based in Canal-Winchester, Ohio, where he owned and ran a candle shop. In September 2007 he announced his move and challenged YouTubers to find him, and ended up in Ahwatukee, Phoenix, Arizona. He later returned to Ohio.
Real Life, Real Time, Uncut, Unedited, Unafraid Edit
Where he would consistently post at least one video per day, he now sometimes even uploads two videos a day. Linked from his profile used to be vloggerheads.com, a website created and co-founded by Paul to give a separated community from Youtube. He began posting videos on Youtube regularly once again. It was stated by him that Youtube is just one of many platforms to utilize in terms of broadcasting social media. It matters not to him the platform used, but rather the internet as a community being able to watch people's readily available video content. He continues to progress in branding himself, and develop his life streaming content to be more appealing to his target audience.
