One of the most popular YouTube stars on the platform, Dream, has finally revealed his face publicly for the first time after eight years.
Dream has 30 million subscribers, making him one of the most prolific individuals in the history of the platform. His recent face reveal was viewed 15 million times within the first nine hours of uploading, making this video absurdly popular even when compared to the biggest celebrities on the platform.

Dream’s face reveal starts with his chair turned away from the camera, just light brown hair and his familiar voice to hint at what comes next. Finally, after more than a minute of teasing, Dream takes off the mask and reveals his face.
Another popular YouTuber and friend of Dream’s, GeorgeNotFound commented saying “this is actual youtube history!” Dream also confirms in the video description that GeorgeNotFound will be uploading a video to his own channel where he showcases the first time he saw Dream in person.
Over the course of Dream’s rise to fame, his simplistic avatar with a crudely drawn smile has become an iconic part of his character and has only fuelled speculation on what Dream actually looks like. For many fans, this is years of discussion finally put to rest.
Dream has seen controversy over the course of his rise to fame, including a number of cheating allegations after Dream claimed the Minecraft speedrun world record multiple times. After a community investigation, it was deemed that Dream’s streak of luck was statistically impossible.
Dream denied cheating for a long time, before eventually conceding that modifications may have been made to his game to increase his chances. Regardless, this only served to push Dream further into the spotlight.
