9 Reasons Why Ryan Higa Is The Best YouTuber

9 Reasons Why Ryan Higa Is The Best YouTuber

He's the best thing on the internet.


YouTube is a newer and better version of television. It's not just music videos but features a range of videos from skits, gaming videos to reaction videos. YouTubers are more relatable and feel more like a friend than just a face on the screen. We all have that one go to YouTube channel that you never get tired of and you re-watch old video and relaugh every joke. For me, that YouTube channel is nigahiga run by Ryan Higa. Ryan Higa is a 25-year-old YouTuber from Hilo, Hawaii, and is of Japanese descent. He has two channels, nigahiga, which has comedic skits, and HigaTV, which features behind-the-scenes footage and unscripted games. In my opinion, he's the best YouTuber ever because:

1. He hasn't changed over the years

Ryan Higa started on YouTube when he was 16, making short amateur comedic skits with his best friend. Over the years, even after gaining millions of subscribers, he's still the same goofy guy. Sure, his videos are more professional and better quality, but the idea and feeling behind each video is still the same. He's humble and has never let fame get to him.

2. He is one of the most creative minds on YouTube

I mean, who else could pull off Darude -- "Sandstorm" with just his voice and some video-editing skills? Each and every one of his videos has awesome ideas, and after watching each of them, you're left with this one thought: How in the world did he come up with that?

3. He's possibly the most hardworking YouTuber

Ryan Higa isn't just all about the creative ideas. He works hard to produce a great video every week. He puts everything into each character that he portrays. For his video "The CARDBOARD" Ryan and his team made a stop-motion video by taking tens of thousands of pictures of every little body movement. I cannot imagine the patience and hard work put into making every video as awesome as he does.

4. He has the best team

Ryan has the most supportive team. They consist of his best friends, Sean, Will, Derek and Greg, and call themselves the RHPC (Ryan Higa Production Company). They work as cameramen, editors, and even as actors on his videos. However, they are much more than that. Each of them gets to show his own personality on his other channel, HigaTV, and they make his videos even better. RHPC is squad goals!

5. He shows immense love for his fans

Ryan's fans, or lamps, as we like to call ourselves, are the most loyal fans in the world. There isn't a single video of his we don't like. Every once in a while, he uploads a video called "TeeHee Time" on his channel HigaTV, where he and his friends open up all the gifts that fans have sent them. It's always fun to see someone's reaction when they open your present, and obviously so when it's out there for everyone to see. He appreciates every gift and even has awards for the most unique and awesome gifts.

He also posts "Dear Ryan" videos on his main channel, nigahiga, where he reads comments from people and answers their questions or does something they want him to do. He also has an app called the TeeHee app where he can be more in touch with his fans.

6. Awesome Collabs

Ryan has collaborated with a lot of other YouTubers to create unique videos. He has collaborated with people like Superwoman, kevjumba, D-trix, and Wong Fu productions. His most recent collab has been with Wong Fu Productions to create a "K-pop" video. He's always humble and lets the other person have just as much role in his videos as he does.

7. The games he invents

On the HigaTV channel, Ryan and his friends play a lot of games like "Crossy Road," "Agario," and "Spyfall." However, there are other games that they have invented for themselves. My favorite is Parkourse, which is a combination of the basketball game Horse and Parkour. For each episode, they go on to different locations and do different stunts.

Another game is I Dare You, where Ryan and his friends and some guest YouTube stars complete the dares of the viewers. Every dare gets points depending on how hurtful or gross the dare is. However, mind you, it can get very gross and isn't for the weak stomached.

8. His music videos

Sure, Ryan isn't much of a singer, but with some autotune and an awesome music video, he's just as good as the Billboard Top 50. His most popular music videos are "Nice Guys" and "Bromance," with about 30 million and 60 million views respectively. The videos are hilarious and the lyrics are on point!

9. Pun master

If you haven't already got it from the above images, Ryan is a pun genius. That is probably my most favorite quality about Ryan. Almost every video has at least a few puns, while in others like, "The Best Joke Ever" and "Love Literally," every sentence or action is a pun.

Here's another one to further prove this point.

All in all, Ryan Higa is funny, smart, and relatable. Each of his videos has a charm of its own, and I encourage everyone to subscribe to both of his channels if you want some good puns in your life.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because Those Hormones Aren't Gonna Balance Themselves

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

It's common knowledge that your hormones impact practically every aspect of your body. Weight gain, acne, mental health... it's all related to your hormonal health. If your life is treating your body like the superstar it is, your endocrine glands should produce the perfect amount of each hormone to keep you running like a well-oiled machine. This is a nice thought, sure. In our current society, even the most balanced person you know may be missing an important aspect of respecting their body. Things like sleep, stress, diet, exercise, and a busy pace of life can throw hormones off balance and negatively impact your general wellbeing. Sometimes these imbalances are noticed right away, while other times they can be smaller — annoying, but not as obvious.

One of the biggest discomforts I initially had with the stay-at-home order was feeling trapped and isolated from what was going on outside the walls of my house. Add that to living in a massive city, where social distancing is nearly impossible when doing something as simple as walking down the street.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.
