The real character behind Blippi is a man of 33 years of age whose real name is Stevin John.
He has been able to gain massive popularity amongst the kids by wearing colorful clothes and playing a character of a high-pitched funny man that teaches kids all about colors, trucks, and many more.
His contents have made people curious about his sexual orientation. Many wonder if Steve John is gay, but Johns is a cis-gender Straight man going with the pronoun ‘he/his’.
But his controversial past has made parents rethink their decision about letting their kids watch his channel.
Life Before And After Blippi
Stephen J. Grossman, also known as Blippi, has garnered 12.8M followers on YouTube. But what was his life before all this fame and money? Well before the popularity, Blippi went on by his real name, Stevin John.
He started off his career as a video editor and marketing consultant. His idea of video editing and marketing did help a lot to establish his Youtube content and career.
His Youtube journey began when he saw his 2-year-old nephew spending time on Youtube. This gave John the idea of starting his own Youtube channel. So he designed a funny colorful custom and started recording himself doing things his nephew would watch on Youtube.
Well, we surely think that a part of his success credit should be given to his nephew as he was an inspiration behind John being able to accumulate a net worth of over millions.

Uncomfortable Past Actions
Even though Blippi is loved by children and his contents keep kids entertained and educated.
There are certain things of a 33-year-olds past that cannot be unseen and have made parents rethink their kid’s source of entertainment.
He could not hide his past activities from the internet for long. On 2019 Buzzfeed found a video of him doing some uncomfortable activities that enraged all the parents and the internet. While Blippi has been trying to erase the internet video, people still find a way to watch it.
While talking to BuzzFeed he expressed his apology and stupidity for doing such actions. He said-
“At the time, I thought this sort of thing was funny, but really it was stupid and tasteless, and I regret having ever done it. I’ve grown up a lot since then, and I trust people will see me as the person I am now, not the idiot I was back then.”
We fully respect his choice of leaving his past behind, and that’s why we won’t be putting up any screenshots or reactions regarding the subject.
Even though Blippi might have made mistakes in his past, he still continues to entertain children and tries to be a better person every day.
Where Is He Now?
Blippi is not actually a child in real life and he has his personal life as well. He is not married, but he has a girlfriend that has been dating for a long time. These two love birds occasionally post each other on their social media and they seem to be in LOVE.
We hope and give our blessings for these two cute love birds to get married and start their family one day.
In recent days on his Youtube platform, John has decided to step back and make videos occasionally. While we can still find Blippi on the channel the character is not played by Stevin. Instead, a new performer has been hired to play the part to the most extent while John handles the pre-and post-production aspect of his channel.
7 weeks ago, when the new Blippi was introduced, parents and fans did not seem to like the idea much, and well, you guessed it right, they didn’t fail to express their views and emotions.
Here is an Instagram post of when the 'new Blippi' was introduced, and fans had funny reactions to it down in the comments.
But the parents seem to have gotten the hang of new Blippi, and they seem to be loving the new performer. As long as the kids are well entertained and are being educated, that is all that matters.
