Popular YouTuber Jake Paul responded to criticism following the release of Shane Dawson’s first documentary episode on the social media star – and also revealed his biggest fear about the series.

Paul stated that he was most nervous about the series’ later episodes, which would detail his relationship with YouTuber Alissa Violet.

The YouTuber was accused of abuse after footage of him spitting on his Violet was released in a now-deleted video.

“That’s definitely the part I’m most nervous about,” he admitted.

Paul stated that opening up to Dawson was ‘difficult,’ and admitted that he initially didn’t want to go forward with the series for fear that he would harm Dawson’s image.

However, he had faith that Dawson would be able to provide a genuine, unbiased account of his life, and decided to go through with the docuseries for that very reason.

Additionally, Paul stated that there would likely be instances in the series that he wouldn’t like, but acknowledged that watching those moments in the film would help him to grow as a person.

“The only way you can get better is if you acknowledge those things… and learn from that, and move on,” he stated.

Jake also mentioned that he had no influence on editing the series, and stated that he and Dawson had become close over the course of the filming process. He said that he was completely honest with anything asked of him, and didn’t set out to ‘expose’ anyone in the film.

He likewise admitted that Shane had told him  what the series was ‘really about’ in the beginning of their talks, and had just been hyping it up as a secret, covert operation to expose his character.

With the first episode of the series already garnering over nine million views, this documentary could rival Dawson’s previous pieces over Jeffree Star and Tana Mongeau.

Streamers who are part of Dream’s SMP Minecraft server such as TommyInnit, Tubbo, Quackity, and more, are topping the list of the fastest growing streamers on Twitch following an SMP finale stream.

The Minecraft community has experienced a giant surge in popularity throughout the past year, with the 2011 game providing a central focus for a huge number of streamers who have seen a boost in their follower count recently.

Largely this resurgence in popularity is due to the huge multi-streamer server named the ‘Dream SMP.’ Dream is a popular Minecraft speedrunner and YouTuber, and while the SMP (survival multiplayer server) started off as a simple fun server, it quickly progressed into remarkably detailed roleplay and lore, which has captivated fans across the world.

The Dream SMP is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

The story of the Dream SMP features wars, betrayal, revolutions, and more, and these plotlines are acted out and developed by a huge host of streamers who have all appeared in the server or in content relating to the server.

Dream SMP dominate fastest-growing channels

Following a ‘finale’ stream that saw an end to part of the developing story, many of these Dream SMP streamers are shooting to the top of the ranks on Twitch, dominating the fastest-growing streamers list.

According to SullyGnome, 16-year-old Tommy is the fastest-growing account on the platform, with his average viewers at a whopping 300,000. This follows his finale stream in which he peaked at around 650,000 viewers.

Close behind Tommy, and all within the top ten fastest-growing streamers for the seven days leading up to January 24, are fellow SMP streamers awesamdude, Tubbo, RanbooLive, Quackity, Foolish Gamers, Sapnap, and Philza.

To see this list dominated by one group of people is certainly a testament to the growing popularity of the Dream SMP group. With so many creators on board, the amount of content is practically endless, and clearly a huge amount of work has gone into developing the lore.

Now this finale has passed, fans will be keen to know what’s going to happen next in the world of the Dream SMP, and there’s no doubt that this interest will provide an even bigger boost in numbers for these streamers.
