David Dobrik described his new TV show, Discovering David Dobrik, as his “dream job” and said he’s “stoked” to be able to do it, fueling speculation that he’ll be leaving YouTube for good.
Dobrik revealed in September 2021 that he would be anchoring a new travel show on Discovery+ called Discovering David Dobrik. It was something he did as a side project alongside his main emphasis – YouTube vlogs – at the time.
Dobrik, on the other hand, later announced that he is considering abandoning vlogging entirely, claiming that he hasn’t made any money doing it in four years. It’s a far cry from the $275,000 per month he was earning at the height of his career.
He called his part on Discovering David Dobrik his “dream job” on January 18, adding that the strange events he’s experienced so far have won him over. It’s a far cry from how he’s been talking about YouTube recently.
Dobrik is thinking of stopping his YouTube vlogs completely. “I was very reluctant to do a TV show,” said the influencer. “I’ve done TV shows before where I’ve had full-blown panic attacks asking myself why the f*** am I doing this? But this is the one show I’m so stoked that I did.”
He explained that he has “crazy experiences” on a regular basis. This includes everything from $15,000 first-class flights to exotic meals, thrilling activities, and luxurious lodging. He laughed, “This is really the dream job.”
He also appreciates the idea that he may use sections of it for his vlog. “Some of it is on my camera as well. They use my footage. They let me use anything for the vlog, which is really cool. They’re really accommodating.”
Dobrik’s YouTube future is still uncertain. However, the excellent experience he’s had so far on his TV show may be enough to keep him away from it permanently in the near future. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens. However, Dobrik stated that he wanted to “try something new,” and he seemed to have discovered his calling.
