Despite his massive following online, Minecraft YouTuber Dream has continued to keep his face a mystery, never revealing what he looks like – outside of some small teases. That is, until now. At long last, Dream finally lifted the mask on October 2.

Dream certainly isn’t the only big-name content creator to have kept their face under wraps for quite some time. Other names like Corpse Husband and Anomaly also keep it covered – although the latter accidentally slipped up on stream.

But, for the longest time, Dream had managed to keep his face a complete secret – although there have been lots of hints and teasers over the years, some of which he put out there himself, and others, not so much.

Dream said back in June 2021 that he will eventually do a face reveal, but that he plans to “take full advantage of it.” And he’s done just that by building hype over a number of weeks, revealing his face to fellow content creators one by one, before sharing with fans around the world on October 2.


Dream’s face reveal finally happens

After years of working around the clock to keep his face hidden from the spotlight, Dream finally revealed the human behind the mask on October 2. Dream, real name Clay, lifted the iconic mask to share his face with the world after generating plenty of hype online.

“A lot of you are probably wondering why now?” he said to over 1.3 million viewers watching the premiere live. In short, his friend GeorgeNotFound was flying out to “meet for the first time.” Rather than having to hide away, Dream finally wanted to “start doing things” out in public. “Get out in the world, meet creators, be a person,” he joked.

On the content side of things, that means fans can expect to see more “IRL content” from Dream and his friends as they meet up with other personalities. Though for now, he doesn’t “plan on adding a face cam” to his ongoing Minecraft videos.


When was the Dream face reveal?

On September 19, Dream posted on his YouTube community tab that his next upload would be him revealing his face.

After much speculation, we finally got a date locked in. On October 2, at roughly 5PM PT, fans were able to get their first look at the famed Minecraft star after years of mystery and intrigue.

Dream’s history of ‘reveal’ teasers

In March, this image showing (apparently) Dream wearing a Corpse beanie spread like wildfire on Twitter. The Minecraft star apparently posted it before deleting it rapidly – knowing his dedicated fans would share it around instantly.

Dream was sure to keep his face out of the shot – only revealing his hair.

This isn’t the first time he has sent fans into a frenzy with a simple hair reveal though.

In August 2021, he also gave a glimpse of his locks in an Instagram post – using his smiley face mask to keep the rest concealed.

These teasers have also caused problems though – such as when he had to dismiss claims about a supposed leak of his face reveal.

A purported photo of Dream began circulating social media, sparking controversy among his fanbase. Angry critics accused the YouTuber of using a body double in photos and videos.

A viral tweet claimed that Dream had “catfished” his audience – but Dream hit back, and said that this was an image of a random person, and that people were attacking them unjustly.

Of course, an official face reveal has now put all of this to rest.
