YouTube NextUp announced its sophomore initiative to foster and train fledgling online video talent in the hopes of upping that fledgling online video talents’ production skills and YouTube savvy from the level of amateur to professional back in mid-October.

Content creators from the two distinct content verticals of Cooking and Training submitted their YouTube channels in hopes of being one of the 16 partners selected to participate in virtual classes on how to master the idiosyncrasies of making it big on the world’s largest video sharing site and be on the receiving end of “an equipment kit worth more than $5,000, mentoring from industry leaders, filming and editing lessons and more than $10,000 worth of promotion on YouTube.”

This week, YouTube announced its 32 selections. The next generation of online video’s finest cooks and physical health educators and enthusiasts respectively include “self-taught chefs, cookbook authors, and former restaurants owners” and an international group that can teach you “exercises using city landscapes, fitness routines made for athletes, safe parkour training exercises, pilates made simple” and more.

So, who are these future catch phrase-slingin’ cooks and next iterations of Tara Stiles? Here’s the list:

YouTube Next Trainer

YouTube Next Chef

A big congrats to all the selections. I look forward to watching a sufficient amount of videos from YouTube Next Trainers to encourage me to exercise enough so that I may eat more food inspired by recipes from YouTube Next Chefs without it impacting my waistline.

Don't miss out on the next big story.
