Felipe Neto Biography
Felipe Neto Rodrigues Vieira is a Brazilian-Portuguese YouTuber from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He ranks as the second most-subscribed Brazilian on YouTube behind Canal KondZilla. He does gaming, vlogs and commentary type of content on his YouTube channel.
He was also the first Brazilian to reach one million subscribers on YouTube in August 2012.
Not much is known about his school life but as a teenager, he was taking theatre classes and performing in some shows as well. He also started a Telemessage company which went into bankruptcy soon after, although that was mostly because he was 14 at the time.
He started uploading videos to YouTube in April 2010 on his main channel, Felipeneto. Here, he talked about celebrities, movies, daily life and regular people but in a comical manner but also criticised it in some ways.
His videos received praise along with some rebuke. By November 2010, his channel had received over 60 million total video views which made his channel rank within the top 500 most-viewed channels on YouTube. He only grew from then on.
He participated in many advertising campaigns and got various advertisement deals as well. In the same year, Neto declined an invitation to work as a reporter for a Brazilian Tv show but made an appearance on the show, “Será Que Faz Sentido?” (Does It Make Sense?) on 11 December. In the show, he and others commented on the showing of the story of a younger actor trying to make a TV show.
Felipe was then nominated for his first two awards on his YouTube career which included winning “Web Star of the year” at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards and being nominated for “Personality of the year” at the 2010 4º Prêmio Tudo de Bom!
He won all the awards he was nominated for in 2011. They were ‘Vem, Gente!’ at the 2011 YouPix, ‘Vlogger of the Year’ and ‘Greatest discovery of the year on Internet’ at the 2011 Premio Jovem Brasileiro.
In 2011, he also founded the first-ever YouTube network company for Brazilian YouTubers called “Paramaker Network“, which focuses on professionalizing the brand.
In July that year, Neto made his second-ever appearance on television where he appeared on the show, “Até que Faz Sentido!” (It Does Make Sense!). There, he gave his opinion regarding different types of traffic and the people involved in it along with hearing others. However, he did it in an informal way.
In the late summer of 2012, Felipe’s YouTube channel became the first Brazilian and Portuguese language YouTube channel to reach one million subscribers.
The same year, Neto received the award of “Entertainer of the year” at the 2012 YouPix event which was his last award to date.
In 2013, Felipe started to take part in more online series’, movies, and theatre projects, collaborating with celebrities in the process. Many of these works were on various media platforms such as Netflix.
However, the same year, Felipe was surpassed by Porta dos Fundos which meant he no longer had the most-subscribed Brazilian channel on YouTube.
In October 2015, Felipe sold his control of Paramaker to Webmedia, a French media company. The current CEO of the company is French Argentine Luther Peczanand while Felipe became responsible for the company’s creative nucleus.

Felipe Neto Recent Updates
In recent times, Felipe Neto has been very active and vocal about Brazillian politics. He has heavily criticised Brazillian president Jair Bolsonaro for lying to his people and calling the covid pandemic a sham.
He was even issued a summons to court for defaming President Bolsonaro by equating his COVID policy to genocide earlier in 2021.
But, that case was later dismissed by a judge on the mere technicality that it had been filed by Bolsonaro’s son, Carlos — and not by the public prosecutor, the military responsible nor the ministry of justice.
Neto took the ruling of the court in a very positive manner, even tweeting at Carlos Bolsonaro that, “it would not have been possible without him”.
