Web Crush Wednesdays: okaynate

You know the deal, everything good on the internet comes either from or in association with Grace Helbig, so today I have another of her My Damn Channel co-workers for your Web Crush: okaynate.

Good ol’ Nate. He’s not Nate the Great, or Domi-Nate, he’s just okaynate. Not even special enough for capital letters and that’s just fine. Now what makes him so okay? I’m glad you asked. Well he started out as part of the “My Damn Channel Live” production team as comment DJ/Punching Bag.

He keeps the show running but gets no respect: that’s okay.

Also, he can fill out a dance number and, despite being barely competent, do absolutely nothing to pull focus from the other dancers:

Is he a great dancer? No, he’s just okay.

Now that he has his own vlog we get to hear his okay stories about his okay life. Even his fantasy life in which he is king features him making the very mediocre laws of movie theaters playing the Lord of the Rings trilogy (extended edition) back to back, but not as a main attraction, merely as background noise for communal naps:

He even got to meet Grumpy Cat. His mediocrity did not cheer her in the least:

He was upstaged on his own show by a tired cat and that’s okay.

All kidding aside though, Nate is more than just okay; he’s a really charmingly simple and earnest person. His videos are always entertaining and he really connects with his viewers by responding to comments and using their input to guide video ideas. I think he really has a handle on the interactive aspect of YouTube and I’m eager to see him continue as a tuber.

Web Crush Wednesdays: Beth Hoyt


Beth In Show, Beth In Show,

It’s not the “Be Thin Show”!

Beth In Show, Beth In Show,

Let’s go!

That’s Beth’s theme song… perhaps it would be best if you actually heard it:

Beth Hoyt is a YouTube personality (I spend a lot of time on YouTube, as is apparent from my web crushes). I first came across her as the host of My Damn Channel Live, which of course I was introduced to by the queen of the internet, Grace Helbig.

After all, all good things on the internet come either from or in association with Grace Helbig.

But Beth is no second fiddle to Grace! She hosted MDC Live four out of five weekdays and did a great job carrying the show; she was personable and had good interactions with the guest stars; she kept the ball rolling and didn’t let it get stagnant which can be tough to do on a live show; and her skits were always great.

I was very happy to spend my weekdays with Beth, but it wasn’t until MDC Live went on hiatus that I checked out her individual YouTube page. Her videos range from her life experiences, interacting with users’ comments, and little skits. I have to say, the skits are probably my favorite and Beth is a really talented character actress.

Beth is also branching out and has become the East Coast guinea pig host of Dirty Little Beauty Secrets on The Stylish Vids.

I find Beth so very entertaining and hopefully MDC Live will return for a second season soon because she was great on it. Until then, check out her YouTube page and Twitter to keep up with her and her comedy. She’s definitely worth a subscription.
