She had a minor role in a 1999 sci-fi movie entitled “Bicentennial” opposite Robin Williams, however, in hopes of finding a more stable job, she enrolled in a teaching program to become a teacher, and before giving birth to Evan, worked as a pre-school and kindergarten teacher.
Evan’s father, Jared, went to college as an art major in graphic design, but later changed to music and theatre, but finally, driven by financial motives, his father opted for economics and business. After finishing college, Jared worked as a singer and dancer on cruise ships, and landed a minor role in the biographical drama “Pursuit of Happyness” alongside Will Smith. However, everything changed with Evan’s birth, and Jared began working as a photographer and videographer, which is how they eventually began making videos on YouTube. An interesting detail about DaddyTube- he was a competitive teenage bodybuilder in the ‘90s.
In a video, Jared explained that the initial idea behind “The Tube Family” was combining raw, unedited footage, but the direction changed to a full-on vlog channel with toy and challenge reviews. Jared said: “Another key element for us has been that we work as a tight family unit, and the channel really wouldn’t be where it is today if it was missing any one of these elements. Family is the driving factor behind everything we do on YouTube.” It currently has nearly four million subscribers.
Evan has one sibling, a sister named Jillian, who also has her own YouTube channel, entitled “JillianTubeHD”, which currently has over 1.5 million subscribers. She also makes similar family and children-oriented content, which includes challenge videos, various DIY hacks, and game reviews, to name a few.
Jared and Evan launched the channel EvansTubeHD in 2011, without thinking that that someday it could turn into a seven-figure business, Jared said:” When we first started the channel, we had no intention of making a cent from our videos. We didn’t even know it was possible. Our payment came in the form of father-son bonding time, and the idea that others were enjoying something we created.”
After spending some time on YouTube and editing videos, Jared became curious about the monetize button, and by clicking it, a huge surprise came. He said:” Lo and behold, money started showing up in our AdSense account. Granted, it wasn’t much–maybe a few dollars a day. I thought if I took this small stream of income and put it into a mutual fund, there would be a nice chunk there to assist with rising costs of education.”

In the beginning, the channel’s direction gravitated toward various toy reviews videos, such as ”Angry Birds Mighty Dragon Clay Model”, and ”Moshi Monsters Series 2 Blister Pack w/ Ultra Rare and Green Sparkly”.
