Without further ado, let’s begin!

―Charmx

Karl Cloutier (born: ​September 30, 1994 (1994-09-30) [age 26]), better known online as Charmx, is a Canadian YouTuber, reactor, gamer, comedian, musician, game developer, animator, and author.

His main channel was founded in 2017 and had been supposedly been taken down due to multiple copyright strikes, but is still in function today. He currently has 2 other backup channels named Charmx3 and Charmx2. Charmx2 is used for a majority of meme reactions, and Charmx3 is used for YouTube Poop reactions, including YouTube Poops of himself.

History

He began YouTube in March 2013, with his first channel called TheCriticalBastard or TBC (initially called DoYoTing). His first channel is still up today, but it is abandoned, and the videos are no longer available (Some, however, have been archived and reuploaded by TheCriticalBastardArchive). In April 2014, he created the original Charmx channel, called CharmxGames. As time went on, he slowly transitioned from gaming to reaction.

On December 10, 2015, he created a second channel called Charmx2, for the reason of too many requests. In February 2016, he ended his original CharmxGames channel to avoid a third strike. Charmx2 became his main channel and was renamed "Charmx" after a while. In mid-2017, his old channel ended up hitting. Sometime later, in February 2017, he created the new Charmx2 to get back up on his feet. After regaining popularity after more than a year of trouble, he created the new and current Charmx channel, simply called Charmx, on July 22, 2017, and not long after, the original Charmx era came to an end when his old channel, with 813,011 subscribers, was terminated on August 14, 2017, due to multiple copyright strikes, and when "My Last Video" was posted the day before at 11:00 AM. In November 2017, he made Charmx3, a third channel that is currently focused on Poop reactions.

Karl currently moved out out of his house to live in his new apartment. He has a brother. He despises living there and has made a 2018 resolution to make enough money and move out of the house. To do so, however, he is using YouTube's monetization feature, having to censor (or completely edit out) inappropriate or controversial words/actions in videos to avoid demonetization. Karl then realizes he needs to gather income elsewhere not only from YouTube. So, he works on side projects to earn more money. At the end of 2018, he didn't manage to get out of the house. Karl planned to move out in 2019 but didn’t due to making little money out of the side projects. 

Zucchini King

  • On August 5, 2018, Karl did a video, showing him wielding a huge zucchini and pretending to use it as a weapon, for which he was known as the "Zucchini King".
  • Four days later, Grandayy asked Charmx for his 1,000,000 subscribers video to make a little scene that Charmx will vote for him like a meme election thing that he's doing. Charmx decided to do a scene with two zucchinis.

  • On August 6, 2020, Charmx brought back the "Zucchini King" with, once again, two large, hefty, rotund, colossal, voluptuous, gartantuan, brobdingnagian, "thicc" zucchinis.

Personal Life

As explained in an old video, before YouTube came around, Karl was at a very dark place in life. He had his suicide date planned out until discovering YouTube and his own religion. Every now and then he feels burnt out and has rough times in life, but it isn't as often as it had been in the past. Karl made a video called "This had to happen, I'm sorry." in this video he says that he is on schizophrenia medication, and he admits to not taking the full dose.
