Blippi, also known by his stage name Stevin John, is the alias of Stephen John Grossman. He’s an American children’s educator and entertainer on Amazon Video, Hulu, and YouTube.

Since then, his childlike, curious, and energetic persona has brought him a lot of wealth, success, and millions of followers online. Blippi has earned income equal to an estimated salary of $4 million dollars per year, since 2019.
Stephen was born on May 27, 1988, in Ellensburg, Washington. He grew up surrounded by cows, horses, and tractors and spent most of his youth reading and finding joy in science. As a child, he had aspirations to be a fighter pilot and/or limousine driver but later changed his mind and didn’t pursue any of these professions. He attended the Morgan Middle School in the 1990s and transferred to the Ellensburg High School.
After graduating from high school in 2006 and turning 18 years old, Stephen joined the United States Air Force. He served active duty as a loadmaster for the airplane C-17 Globemaster, based at the Fourth Airlift Squadron. He spent the remainder of the decade there, with his main duties being performing calculations, as well as planning the cargo placement. As the 2010s approached, once his tenure in the Air Force had ended, he created his stage name Stevin John and began working as a comedian across various states.
What made the viral influencer so rich were his many projects created for the likes of Amazon, Hulu, and YouTube. After he spent several years working as a comedian across America, in 2013, Stevin John created another persona – Steezy Grossman. Grossman uploaded several gross-out videos such as Underwear Man and Turdboy. Later that year, he filmed a video where he performed the Harlem shake on a toilet, which eventually became his breakthrough video.
After gaining some momentum as Stevie John and Steezy Grossman, in January 2014, the entertainer and educator started his own YouTube channel. The idea for his alias came after moving back to his hometown. There, he witnessed his then-two years old nephew watching various low-quality videos on the video-sharing platform. Stephen thought he would film a video and use it to entertain his nephew. His first video was published on January 27, 2014.
Throughout the rest of the year, he continued to upload content on his channel whilst also filming, and editing the projects all by himself. Towards the end of 2014, once his channel was monetized, Blippi started making an estimated $1,000 per month. Since then he has released hundreds of high traffic videos adding to his growing audience.
Being a comedian and children’s entertainer, as well as a web personality has made Blippi very successful. As of now, his channel on YouTube has more than 11.3 million subscribers. He has uploaded over 220 videos that have accumulated more than 8,7 million views.
Among his most-watched video projects on the most popular video-sharing platform are Blippi Learns about Jungle, Videos for Toddlers with Blippi, Detective Blippi Video for Children, and Blippi Learns at the Children’s Museum. The first has more than 700 million views, while the other three over 260 million views.
It’s safe to say that Stevin John has turned his pet projects into a very prosperous business. Presently, Blippi is a fan-favorite to children from all over the world. According to DailyMail and one of his recent interviews with the website, the internet star has adoring fans in over 140 countries. He has also had successful television and web shows for streaming platforms Hulu and Amazon Video.
At first, he started the venture all by himself but as it grew larger and larger into a full-blown business, he hired animation teams, a business manager, camera crew, and musicians to help him out.
