Chamberlain was born in San Bruno, California and raised in San Mateo County. Before her claim to fame, she was a competitive cheerleader for five years and also participated in track. The hilarious YouTube sensation joined the website on June 13, 2016. She posted her first video on June 2, 2017. She posted tons of videos over the summer of 2017 but it wasn’t until August of that year (which realistically isn’t that long) that one of her videos went viral. Chamberlain’s YouTube is filled with her quirky personality. When she films a video you can see that she is not holding anything back. In most of her videos, she literally says the first thing that comes to mind when she’s vlogging. This lets fans get to know the real, hilarious Emma.
If you watch one of her videos or scroll through her Instagram you notice that she truly has an IDGAF attitude. It’s refreshing to see someone who is not all encompassed with their looks and just has fun. Chamberlain also does collaborations with other YouTubers, especially the Dolan Twins. Fans love seeing their adorable friendship unfold. Her content is mostly vlogs and challenges. Honestly, just listening to Emma talk is genuinely entertaining and so #relatable. Need proof? In one of her most recent videos, she had a mental breakdown because she didn’t like her new hair color. Then she spent the rest of the day convincing herself that she liked it. You know you’ve been there before. Fun fact: she is a self-proclaimed coffee and chapstick addict.
Her videos average millions of views. Her most viewed YouTube video has 28 million views and it is one with the Sister Squad (Emma, the Dolan Twins, and James Charles). Typically her videos average around 5 to 7 million views. When she collaborates with other celebrities and YouTubers it grows to around 10 million views.
