Hey, Vsauce! Michael here.

―Vsauce's intro

Michael David Stevens (born: January 23, 1986 (1986-01-23) [age 35]), better known online as Vsauce, is an American educational YouTuber. Vsauce creates generally educational content, with sister channels Vsauce2, Vsauce3, D!NG, and WeSauce. Vsauce is currently the second most subscribed educational YouTuber, after Mark Rober. Vsauce's theme has become quite well known, emerging from these channels as El Robot de Platón and CdeCiencia.

Vsauce was originally created by the member of The Key of Awesome team, Michael Stevens in 2007. Back then, Michael only made comedy and parody videos. Later on, several regular shows began on Vsauce. These shows included D!NG (things you can Do Online Now, Guys) but now there is a channel for D!NG which also uploads LÜT videos on that channel too, IMG! (a presentation of photographs), LÜT (cool things for sale) (now uploaded on D!NG channel), and DOT, where Michael asks a weird question (i.e. What is Cool?) and attempt to answer it while also targeting several other questions.

WeSauce is about fan-created content, with segments such as Your BiDiPi and JAM.

History

On June 24, 2010, Michael Stevens created the first Vsauce channel. The channel originally focused primarily on video games, before branching out into other topics such as science and education. As of recently, the channel focuses on education, with the primary educational segment, DOT., being broadcast since September 9, 2012.

Originally featuring a number of hosts, segments such as IMG! took over the channel which resulted in Michael Stevens becoming the sole host.

The name, Vsauce, was supposedly generated from using the fake website generator portion of the name generator at www.fakenamegenerator.com.

Since its creation, Vsauce has branched out into numerous different channels, with Vsauce2 created on December 7, 2010, and Vsauce3 created on December 24, 2010. The latest channel, titled WeSauce was opened on July 25, 2012.

The channel began to gain some popularity in September 2012 after Bill Nye co-starred in the video, "Why did the chicken cross the road?". The channel gained 1 million subscribers in that same month.
