In the world of YouTube, it pays to know people — namely, other YouTubers. That was certainly the case for Corinna Kopf, who made her debut on one of David Dobrik’s vlogs. In case anyone needs a refresher, per E! News, Dobrik launched a successful internet presence on Vine and when the platform became obsolete, Dobrik jumped over to YouTube. He’s had so much success on the platform that he was crowned The Social Media Star of 2019 at the E! People’s Choice Awards. Dobrik also has the net worth to back up those accolades.
It’s no wonder Dobrik snagged the award. As of this writing, he has more than 18 million YouTube subscribers and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down anytime soon. These days, Dobrik is undoubtedly one of the most popular vloggers on YouTube. If there’s any question about his dedication to the platform, when he and YouTuber Liza Koshy broke up, they announced their split in a video.
That being said, Dobrik doesn’t dominate alone. He’s known for bringing friends into his videos, friends who have since nabbed the name the “Vlog Squad.” It’s as part of that team that Kopf has thrived.
David Dobrik helped launch Corinna Kopf's career
Corinna Kopf and David Dobrik actually go way back. At a Playlist Live convention in Orlando, Fla., in 2019, Kopf gave the story. They met in Chicago and they went to a Jack & Jack concert. They later moved out to Los Angeles together to launch their social media careers. In an interview with Johnjay Van Es in 2017, Kopf explained how Dobrik put all of their friends in his vlogs. Kopf said this exposure not only blew up her career but all the friends who joined Dobrik on his YouTube channel, hence the “Vlog Squad.”
Kopf and Dobrik clearly have remained friends as he regularly appears on her Instagram feed. For his birthday in 2020, Kopf posted several photos with Dobrik and wrote the caption: “happy birthday dave, you’re one year closer to being a sugar daddy (preferably mine).” Kopf also regularly appears on Dobrik’s social media, so it’s clear the two social media superstars who started off as pals have remained pretty close.
