A YouTube celebrity and icon. He has risen in popularity over the past year, and has fans all over the world.

He is really just a regular guy, but he somehow has the ability to draw you in and keep you watching. His real name is Shane Yaw but uses the pseudonym(?) Dawson. He seems to have a somewhat dirty mind. This is to be expected from a 20somewhat man.

I guess he gets some money from YouTube cause his video quality and special effects have improved dramatically from his first videos. He has two channels, one for the main videos, released every Saturday, and one for vlogs.

His vids are comedic, and very entertaining. He is an admitted virgin, and denies being gay. At first it may seem like he is gay because of his looks(long, somewhat perfect hair, skinny, stylish) but if you watch his vlogs and videos alot you can see he is not. Some of his videos are serious however, like when he got fired from shmeany shmeag. (you'll get that if ur a fan lol) and when he talks about his enormous weight loss.

He has his haters, but who dosn't? He is 5th all time is subscriptions, behind nigahiga, fred, smosh, and universalmusicgroup. Hes collabed with alot of other YouTube stars. He is a part of The Station, but isn't as involved as he planned originally. He was voted Mr. YouTube in a poll conducted by whatthebuck. Does live shows, and is very involved with the fans

He seems to be a good guy, and always keeps his fans happy=)
Shane Dawson has two YouTube channels, facebook, myspace, and twitter pages and his own website.

Shane Yaw a.k.a Shane Dawson is a famous youtuber. He has been with youtube since the very beginning. Even though he wasnt always known. He is a brilliant actor, who has made many characters, including; Barb, cowboy with tourets, kesha and his most favorites; Ned the nerd, S-Deezy, Paris Hilton, Shanes alcholic mom, Aunt Hilda and Shananay. Shane has mentioned in one of his videos that aunt hilda and shananay may be his most famous characters but thinks that shananay is still number one. His brothers name is jerid yaw a.k.a jerid dawson. He also has his own youtube channel. However he is not as popular. HIs mother is Theresa Dawson. Shane has said that his family has been through it all like; alcholism in the family, abuse, bullying, being poor,etc. He also mentioned that he deals with serious things with comedy because thats how he deals with it. Thats is probably why he is praised by many youtubers because he really connects with his fans and enjoys making them laugh. Shane makes people feel like his viewers are his friends and treat them as such. <3
WE TOATS LOVE SHANEDAWSONTEEVEE!!! <3 thanks shane dawson

Possibly the best youtuber in all history. He's very open about his thoughts, life, etc. This does NOT make him gay. He's extremely hilarious and makes any hard days better.

The most sexist guy on youtube famous for series such as shane and friends and ask shane and Shananays reviews and fred is dead he loves his audience though sometimes he will cuss or say dirty things he is a fun loving guy that just wants to make videos and cares about others and he takes criticism very well and he tries to make big videos like emo break up part 1 and 2 and beats himself up a little if he doesnt get them up on the day that he said that it would be he feels like he owes it to his audience to do it to much but hes a all around awesome guy and he never gets mad at his viewers for a idea for a video that is stupid he also has video contest and loves to get video responses

One of the absolute best youtubers out there. He has a strong group of fans who will defend him to the end. very talented and very sexy. Knows his way around a camera and editing software. Knows how to make people laugh too. He's very intelligent and has the ability to do wonderful things. Youtube is just the beginning for him. He has two youtube channels, works with other youtubers, and is trying to start his own show. He has let many people see who he truly is and not play up the "perfect" life. He's become friends to many who may never meet him but that's ok. He has a lot of wisdom for someone his age and has helped many with their own issues. He's more than someone who makes funny videos.
Person 1: "Who's Shane Dawson?"
Person 2: "One of the best youtubers ever!!"

Shane Dawson is amazing! He started a channel on youtube that has become famous all over the world. He continuously inspires over a million people, one week at a time. He makes us think, he makes us laugh and maybe even cry sometimes with his spoofs, skits, questions, Ask Shane, and the videos that lets us know what's going on. A lot of people I know love his videos including me, he has a great sense of humor, he's creative, thoughtful and sweet. Best youtuber ever! :)
Person 1: I can't wait for Shane Dawsons video this week!
Person 2: Me either! He's so awesome!!
