Kelly Popp (born November 18, 1989), also known as KPopp or PoppKell, is a video game commentator on YouTube who has over 400,000 subscribers. The first video she uploaded was in 2006 of her skateboarding (doing a nose stall). Her next upload was in 2010, it was a gaming video, which made her a famous gamer on YouTube today.
Kelly is currently a YouTube partner, and has more than 500,000 subscribers. She makes many gameplay video series, such as The Sims 3, The Walking Dead, Dating Simulators, Facade, Grand Theft Auto, Call of Duty, and many other games.
Kelly Popp was born on November 18, 1989 and currently lives with her boyfriend, Alex, and their two cats named NomPopp and Cat7thst in Plainfield, Illinois.
In high school, Kelly has been always mentioning numerous times on how she was a friendly student but had performed some mischief around in school and the outside world. She revealed during the Bully livestream that when she was a senior, she and her friend went inside the female restrooms, where the two had confronted some sophomore cheerleaders who appear to be prepping up.
The two had an idea that they will pretend to poop inside the stalls, so that they could disgust the cheerleaders who were prepping up. So the two grabbed two apples (one for each) and went inside their stalls, where both of them dropped the apples into the toilet and made sounds of relief of releasing poo, which successfully disgusted the cheerleaders.
However, when Kelly attempted to flush the apple, it got stuck in the whole, where she called her friend over to her stall to help her flush it, where they successfully flushed it but it made a strange noise, so the two made a run for it. But five minutes later, both of them returned and found half of the restroom was flooded.
Kelly also mentioned during the "KPopp Learns to Drive" video that she was driving with her friend to Indiana beach, where Kelly had made the volume of the playing techno music up high, as she mentioned that she liked the genre. Whilst Kelly was making a turn, she lost a side-view mirror. Kelly never specified what happened next, as she continued playing the game.
In 2011, She met Alexander in Georgia, United States as revealed in Alex's "Draw My Life" video. After Alex had a small visit at her house, he found himself robbed; where after the incident he lived with her in a rented house in the woods.
In 2014, Kelly and her boyfriend Alexander (aka Whiteboy7thst) were arrested for having to possession 30-500 grams of marijuana after police swatted their house during a livestream. The following day after a night at the prison, Kelly and Alexander were bailed out with a $35,000 to pay. Since the whole thing was caught on camera and due to both of their YouTube fame, the event caused an uproar on many websites such as Reddit and Twitter. Their court date was set for September 25, 2014, but the charges were later dropped since the police weren't originally searching for marijuana and since the two often get swatted for no reason. Kelly and Alexander have decided to keep low about the topic, to avoid more misinformation by the press and viewers.
Kelly opened her YouTube account under the name KPopp on February 18, 2006 with a sports video showing a teenager Kelly doing a skateboarding trick called an "Nose Stall". A few years later following the sports video, she started doing Call of Duty and MW2 commentaries, and Let's Plays on Heavy Rain, Red Dead Redemption and hilarious glitch videos.
Then, KPopp began uploading Let's Plays and playthroughs on action-themed, mystery-themed and shooter-themed videos, including Justice in Pike's Basin live commentaries, flash games and other types of games such as Façade. KPopp spawned a fanbase named "Popptarts", and references her subscribers as "Popptarts" and "Manlytarts"; at times.
On an interview with SimsTabloid, KPopp explained her reactions to numbers of subscribers, "It is a little strange. I remember jumping for joy and freaking out when I got my first subscriber. Everything after that has been awesome, but I haven’t freaked out quite as much! I’m just really happy because I love interacting with the people who watch my videos.
I love replying to comments and messages when I can. It sucks because I get so many. There was a time when I would reply to every comment and message I got. I had to stop doing that after about 40,000 subscribers because it would take 4+ hours to respond to everything. YouTube has been the reason for so many of the best moments in my life so far.
I've met so many amazing people that when I really stop to think about it… I just cannot control my emotions. There are so many things that viewers don’t always see about YouTube content creators. A lot of people want to point fingers and call some people fake or in it for the wrong reasons, but I’m very lucky. I think people can tell that I am a genuinely good person. Or maybe not, I can be kind of mean to video game characters because they do not have feelings. I swear I’m a really caring and nice person though! I’m this weird mix of awkward, sarcastic, and nice so it usually just results in silliness."
KPopp explained how she got the idea for The Sims 3 Hunger Games, "I was reading the second book of the Hunger Games trilogy and it just kind of hit me. I knew it would be a lot of fun. I just had to figure out how to make a Sims 3 interpretation of it. A lot of times when people come to the series they are expecting it to be exactly like the Hunger Games in the books/movies.
Clearly, that would be difficult to do on the Sims. I enjoy the fact that my Sims Hunger Games is based more off luck and chance for the most part. I let the Sims have their free-will and very rarely control them unless it is challenge time or something else important. The series just makes me laugh so hard. It is always really fun to rewatch what happened when I am in the editing process. I am really glad people seem to be enjoying it as much as me."
