Where does Guava Juice come from?
In a 2006, a 15-year-old Roi Fabito started making YouTube videos with his childhood friend Alex Burriss. They called their channel Hoiitsroi before changing it to Wassabi.
Wassabi’s 2012 parody of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” went viral and has since earned over 100-million views.
Fabito also started Guava Juice in 2006, originally as a vlogging platform he later expanded into gaming. Citing fatigue and and concerns about its direction, Fabito left Wassabi in 2015, turning Guava Juice into a challenge and entertainment channel.
As of 2018, Guava Juice has nearly 10-million subscribers and is best known for Fabito’s collection of “bath challenge” videos. He has posted dozens and dozens of videos of himself swimming in and playing with unusual things he puts in his bathtub, including: jello, Diet Coke, nacho cheese, and shaving cream, to name a few.
Fabio, whose catchphrase is Stay Juicy, keeps very busy outside the tub. He launched a digital subscription service called Juice Box, where customers can buy boxes (think Birchbox) filled with toys, merchandise, and DIY kits featured on his channel.
Guava Juice also has two spinoff channels, Guava Juice 2 and Guava Games. Guava Juice 2 started in 2012 as a platform for Fabito to post vlogs and other entertaining content, sort of like his original, more personal Guava Juice. Guava Games began in 2017 as an outlet for Fabito’s enjoyment of gaming.
Who uses Guava Juice?
Fans of Guava Juice, who tend to be older children and young adults, call themselves GUAVs, a term Fabito uses himself. They—or anyone else who stumbles upon them—may use GIFs of his absurd bath challenges to express various emotions (e.g., feeling silly or going crazy).
Guava Juice is also known for his signature symbol, a cartoon guava fruit that vaguely looks like Fabito. Along with Stay Juicy, he uses this image in his merchandise and even receives gifts of fan-art based on it. Buy some below … if you’re into that kind of thing.
The melon emoji, 🍈, is often included in social-media posts about Guava Juice, as it is the emoji that most closely resembles the guava fruit.
Speaking of the guava fruit, pretty much all other instances of guava juice refer to various beverages, from health drinks to cocktails, made from the sweet, aromatic, green-skinned, and pink-fleshed tropical fruit known as the guava.
Apparently, some connection to or love of this juice inspired Guava Juice‘s now internet-famous career.
