Aaron Lemos was born in the US on 8 February 1998, so under the zodiac sign of Aquarius and holding American nationality. Better known under his online pseudonym of EmpLemon, he is popular for his YouTube channel, on which he mostly uploads parody videos, while he gained recognition after he began publishing his “YouTube Poop” series.
Early life and education
EmpLemon grew up playing video games and watching movies and TV series. He spent his childhood in Florida, with his father who didn’t graduate as he had no money to attend college, and his Chinese mother, who spent her entire childhood in Asia before coming to the US – as he hasn’t talked about having any siblings, he is rumored to be an only child.
EmpLemon had a very small circle of friends while at high school, because he has a warped sense of humor which not a lot of people understood, and they took his jokes for insults most of the time. He didn’t mind, but decided to simply focus on those few people who understood him. He matriculated from Nease High School, and then focus on his online career rather than to pursue a college degree.
Career of a YouTuber
EmpLemon’s career began the moment he launched his YouTube channel on 12 March 2010, with a caption reading ‘I think Lemon has been on a downward spiral mentally, and now he’s lost it completely’ – there are currently more than 460,000 people subscribed to the channel which also counts over 68 million views combined of all his videos.
One of his most popular videos is entitled “YouTube Poop: The UNcredibles”, which has amassed more than 5.7 million views since its upload on 16 August 2013. Although EmpLemon rose to fame thanks to his YouTube Poop videos, which were always loved by his fans, he decided to turn to a commentary format in 2017, and stopped uploading the videos. He stated how he understood that he became popular only thanks to this type of video, but would nevertheless stop making them – however, his commentary videos still have a bit of a YouTube Poop style in them. Before he quit making these videos, he was the proud owner of the title of The Most Subscribed YouTube Poop Channel.

People enjoy watching his commentary videos because of his unique style, which is special for his sincerity, being open and critical about YouTube’s practices and the way the platform is making loads of money. EmpLemon is very self-conscious, and he is therefore a tough target for anyone to call him out – a popular YouTuber Stuart K. Reilly tried to call him out once, but after EmpLemon fired back in his own unique and original way, it only ended with Stuart K. Reilly losing his subscribers.
EmpLemon also has a second YouTube channel called “EmperorLime”, which he launched on 23 March 2011 to serve as a backup – there are currently more than 17,000 people subscribed to it, while it also counts more than six million views combined of all his videos.
This channel doesn’t differ much from his main, as he uploads the same kind of content, but less frequently. EmpLemon is also an actor and a producer, as he appeared in the “State of the YouTube” comedy talk show, “The Wheel of Punishment 2” comedy, and “Never Ever” documentary talk-show, all shot in 2018.
What is YouTube Poop?
YouTube Poop or YTP are a special kind of video, which are edited versions of original videos, with the goal of making them more humorous, profane, annoying, confusing, shocking, or dramatic. They are commonly uploaded onto the YouTube platform, but can also be found on Newgrounds, Vimeo, and Dailymotion – any videos can be used as material for making YouTube Poop, including TV series, movies, videos of other people, animes, and others.
Personal life and relationships
EmpLemon is very secretive when it comes to his love life, as he hasn’t shared any details regarding his past and present affairs with the public.
He is currently rumored to be dating another (female) YouTuber, who was a YouTube Pooper as well, but stopped making these videos at the same time as him, as she was not motivated after he quit. The two have allegedly been dating for more than two years now, but as secretive as he is, EmpLemon hasn’t commented on this, and therefore nothing about his current relationship status can be said with certainty.
However, judging by his social media accounts and his secrecy, EmpLemon currently appears to be single, he hasn’t married, and doesn’t have any kids.
Hobbies and other interests
EmpLemon is a huge lover of animals, which is the reason why he decided to turn vegan – he is very sensitive when it comes to these matters, and hates to see people treating animals in any other way than friendly. EmpLemon enjoys watching movies and TV series – he grew-up watching TV, and some of his favorite animated series include “The Simpsons” and “Rick and Morty”, while some of his favorite movies of all time are “Pulp Fiction” and “Harvey”.
He spends most of his time by his computer, making and editing his videos, but he is also a big fan of the outdoors, and loves being in nature including forests and mountains – he has stated how as the years go by, he prefers animals more and people less. He is a fighter for endangered species, and is trying his best to contribute to the saving of these animals from extinction in any way he can.
Appearance and net worth
EmpLemon is currently 21 years old. Nothing about his appearance is known, as he hasn’t shown himself online. According to authoritative sources, his net worth is estimated to be more than $300,000, as of early 2020, and is steadily rising thanks to his YouTube channel.
Being secretive online
While some people have stated that EmpLemon hasn’t shown his face online because he might not be that good-looking, others think that this might be because a bit secrecy online is good for you, as any info that you share can be used against you. One YouTuber was once ‘pranked’ when his ‘fan’ called the airport he was at and reported a bomb being planted there while using his real name – the YouTuber was immediately taken into custody and missed his flight.
These trendy 2017 memes are so irrelevant now that this is likely the first time you have thought about them in 2 years.
While EmpLemon has shared his real name with his fans, he still hasn’t shown his face, and it doesn’t appear that he is planning to do so any time soon.
Social media presence
EmpLemon is quite active on several popular social media platforms, as this is important for his career of a YouTuber. He launched his Twitter account in June 2012, his Instagram account has just four pictures onto it, and he also has a Facebook profile, but seems to be using it just to keep in touch with his friends and family.
