Scroll down for the Tubefilter Chart.

It’s another installment of the Top 100 Most Subscribed YouTube Channels Worldwide and a different international pop star is in the very top spot.

Chart Toppers

For the third month running, PewDiePie is not in first place on the Most Subscribed YouTube Channels Chart. That honor now belongs to Adele. The 25-year-old British popstar who’s currently turning the music business on its head had a great month in terms of online video, too. Adele’s music video release of “Hello” – her latest single in four-or-so-years – helped her channel to more than 1.3 million new subscribers during the 31 days of the month. In a distant second place is Justin Bieber. The Bieb’s first several music video releases in the past several months attracted a LOT of new Beliebers to his YouTube channel, which racked up nearly 823,000 new subscribers in October.

In third place is Rclbeauty101. The 20-year-old beauty and lifestyle guru from Philadelphia added another 598,000 subscribers to her channel in the month. Fernanfloo is up next in the #4 spot. The El Salvadorian gaming sensation scored nearly 568,000 subscribers on the month

And rounding out the Top 5 is PewDiePie. YouTube’s most popular channel ever ended the month having added more than 552,000 members to its Bro Army.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our our Top Gainers this month goes to Madeyewlook.

No one on YouTube had a better October than Adele (whose channel witnessed an incredible 1,950% month-over-month increase in its subscriber acquisition rate), but if you don’t count the pop star that reintroduced herself to the world with a simple hello, Madeyewlook had one of the best months on YouTube. The channel that’s home to the online video offerings of Lex – a 22-year-old licensed esthetician and self-taught makeup artist and body painter – saw a sizable uptick in its subscriber numbers thanks to Halloween and a series of horror-and-social-media-inspired makeup tutorials. Her American Horror Story and Snapchat Filter how-tos helped account for a 173% month-over-month increase in her channel’s subscriber acquisition rate, almost 245,000 new subscribers, and the #64 spot on the worldwide chart.

Channel Distribution

The Top 100 Most Subscribed YouTube channels in the month amassed in aggregate a total of 31,129,582 new subscribers. Here’s a look at the distribution of a few of those channels broken down by the most-represented YouTube Multi-Channel Networks on the chart:

  • VEVO: 20 channels in the Top 100 Most Subscribed, with Adele the top channel in the network at #1.
