Nickolas David Bean (born March 13, 1995), known on YouTube as ItsNickBean, is an American YouTube, Instagram, and YouNow star. He currently resides in Los Angeles, but was born in Maiden, North Carolina. The main focus of his channel are challenges, comedy, and his music.
Nick first became known on the live streaming social media app YouNow where he quickly became one of its most popular broadcasters. He currently has over 700,000 fans. He then joined a group called 5quad that was the YouNow equivalent to Our2ndLife. The group consisted of himself, Zach Clayton, Edwin Burgos, and Timmy Connors. The group dominated YouNow and toured around the country on major tours like Digitours and TLG for 2015 and 2016. The group disbanded in October 2016 and Nick began to take YouTube more seriously.
Bean began producing music as a pre-teen in North Carolina. But he didn't take it seriously until he joined 5quad in 2015. His first song to get notice was Netflix and Chill which has nearly 2 million views on his YouTube channel. His next song, Wifi Wifey, would earn him 13 million YouTube views and thousands of plays on various social media platforms. This has inspired him to take his musical career more seriously. As of February 2016, he has released another song called Stay on his YouTube channel which quickly gained 50,000 views in only a few days. He followed that up with Bubblegum Girl and then released a song with Zach Clayton called Lip Singer, which has over 4 million views on YouTube.
A parody of girls on social media, Sara is Nick's most popular character. Originally Nick simply used a girl voice he called Sara to prank call or catfish on his YouNow broadcasts. Soon he began putting on a wig, makeup, and dressing like a girl. The character soon proved so popular he created another YouTube channel for the character.
