WME Signs YouTube’s Vsauce3, Four Other Digital Stars (Exclusive)

WME has roped Jake Roper — aka popular YouTube vlogger Vsauce3 — into its talent stable, along with four big digital influencers from across the globe: South Africa’s Caspar Lee, Australian fitness personality and model Emily Skye, Elise Strachan (MyCupcakeAddiction) and the Fung Brothers comedy duo.

Roper (pictured above) hosts the fastest-growing channel in the Vsauce science and entertainment network. Vsauce3, with 2.5 million subscribers, offers scientific discussions about videogames and other fictional worlds: His biggest hits are “What If Superman Punched You?” and “3 Pokémon Who Could Kill You.” Parent network Vsauce was featured in Variety‘s Famechangers report last month as among the most influential digital-native brands.

Caspar Lee, 20, currently has 5 million fans following his main YouTube channel, which features vlogs, pranks, interviews and other musings from his life. Now based in London, he has been featured in Lisa Kudrow’s “Web Therapy” on the StyleHaul digital network and recently wrapped production on “Laid in America,” a feature with fellow U.K. social-media star KSI. Lee continues to be managed by Dom Smales at Gleam Futures.

Elise Strachan‘s MyCupcakeAddiction, with 2 million YouTube followers, provides hints, tips and step-by-step how-to videos for baked treats and sweets. The Australia native continues to be repped by Lisa Goldstone.

Australia’s Emily Skye, 30, has 5.5 million followers on Facebook and nearly 1 million on Instagram; her fitness videos have been viewed over 200 million times. She will continue to be managed by Sam Mangan at Spin & Co.

The Fung Brothers — comedians and rappers David and Andrew Fung — have 1 million YouTube subs with more than 100 million video views. The pair also have a TV show on A+E Networks’ FYI called “What the Fung?!” with their multicultural takes on American cuisine. The Fung Brothers continue to be managed by Mylen Yamamoto.
