History Edit

2007-2016 Edit

The JoeysWorldTour YouTube account was started on April 20 (4/20), 2007.

Joey has said that he didn't know he was going to be doing food reviews, otherwise he would have called the channel something else, like Joey's Food Reviews.

The first video uploaded to the channel was "A Cannery Row Seagull" (YouTube) on February 6, 2011. The next video was not uploaded until Jun 11, 2012 [this does not include any videos that have since been deleted or made private]. The early days of the channel featured more food challenges, cooking demonstrations, and non-food-related videos. Uploads become more frequent in mid-2012 and 2013.

Joey's first food review ("KFC Boneless Chicken REVIEWED!" [YouTube]) was uploaded on Apr 14, 2013. The channel subsequently became more focused on food reviews.

Joey has said that he got into YouTube food reviews "by accident." He was between jobs in 2012 and began uploading food challenges and cooking videos to pass the time. One day, he decided to do a fast-food review in his car. Initially, he was accused of copying YouTube user Daym Drops, who uses a similar format for his videos. However, Joey contacted Daym and received his "blessing" and support, and decided to continue doing reviews.

2013-2016 Edit

JoeyWorldTour continued with regular uploads of food reviews and gained more views and subscribers. On May 8, Joey told his viewers his channel had just hit 200 subscribers, and on May 11, he stated that it had "close to 300 subscribers." He said he hoped to hit 1,000 "someday."

At some point in late 2013 or early 2014, JoeysWorldTour became affiliated with Daym Drops as a member of #TeamDaym. The first video to feature the #TeamDaym logo was "Baskin-Robbins Movie Theater Popcorn Ice Cream REVIEW!" (YouTube) on Jan 14, 2014.

2016-Present Edit

The channel received a large influx of viewers and commenters when popular YouTube user LeafyIsHere uploaded a video about Joey on February 19, 2016.

The channel continued to grow as Joey added videos at a rate of 3 per week (uploading on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).

As of May, 2017, it had 233,888 subscribers and 44,919,362 views. As of May, 2017, it has over 500 videos.

Content and Episodes Edit

JoeysWorldTour features several kinds of episodes:

  • Food reviews: Joey reviews a food or drink item. These videos are branded as "Joey's Super Kool Food Reviews," and make up the vast majority of the channel. (For a complete list of Joey's food reviews, see the Food Review Guide.)
  • Vlogs: Joey speaks to his viewers on various subjects.
  • Food challenges: Joey attempts a food-related challenge, like eating an entire jar of Nutella without using his hands. Several of these videos have been set as private and are no longer viewable on the channel.

  • Travel: Joey visits an event or location (examples include Disneyland and a wrestling convention).
  • Other: Miscellaneous videos, such as Joey recreating a Jerry Lewis routine.

Production and Filming Edit

Most of Joey's food reviews are filmed in his vehicles. He appears to have two trucks, a Chevrolet Tahoe and a Ford pickup. He tries to drive to an isolated location where he won't be seen making the video.[1]

To film the video, he places the camera on a tripod between the seat and the dashboard. In many reviews, he places the food on the dashboard before eating it and turns the camera around to shoot a closeup of the food. The video then cuts to Joey's face again, giving him an opportunity to say his famous catchphrase, "I'm beaaaaaaaaaack!".[1]

In 2013, Joey showed his viewers that he wrote down the name of every subscriber to his channel. Subscribers who were "haters" or who cyberbullied other users received an asterisk next to their name. It is not known if Joey still writes down every subscriber. The same notebook also contained notes for his reviews.[1]

Revenue Edit

It is unknown how much Joey earns from his videos. He has stated that his YouTube income does not cover his expenses, and he still works as a chef and caterer on the weekends.[2][3]

Leafy showed clips from one of Joey's KFC reviews and his hands-free nacho cheese challenge (which is no longer viewable on YouTube since Joey made it private). He criticized Joey's eating habits and mannerisms. Some of his comments include: "I watched the whole video, he just says 'I'm back,' and then he eats the KFC in the most disgusting way, dude"; "What in the actual fuck is going through that meat head of yours"; and "This guy needs to be put in a fucking asylum."
