Being a former student of three different universities, including South Florida, then Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College and finally the University of East Carolina, Philip probably created some problems for his father while he was younger. A story about DeFranco living in a car, because of his failure to get back to college, and having a disagreement with his father because of it might seem funny and made-up, but is most probably true.

Philip started making videos while he was still at university and working as a waiter in different restaurants.

Just to make sure how incredible his online work is, it is enough to mention that his channel impressively counts over three million subscribers around the world, and that Philip’s videos have been watched over one billion times. Enough to make him own 79th place among most subscribed YouTubers. As if it’s not enough, DeFranco has received five awards during his online career. Of course, his net worth had grown with his popularity.
