Tyler Oakley Gets His Very Own Talk Show All Thanks To Ellen DeGeneres!
Everything’s coming up Tyler!
While Tyler Oakley has already cemented himself as one of YouTube‘s most influential content creators, he’s about to get even bigger.
That’s because after placing third on The Amazing Race this season — and NINE YEARS of making his own videos — Tyler now has his very own talk show all thanks to Ellen DeGeneres!

The 27-year-old stopped by Ellen on Wednesday for a regularly scheduled appearance, but ended up shocking the crowd with the announcement of The Tyler Oakley Show!
Oh yeah, and the first episode guest starring Kerry Washington and C├â┬⌐line Dion already premiered… TODAY!!
Now don’t worry — while Grace Helbig‘s wonderfully-done-yet-seldomly-watched talk show failed after a single season… we think that has more to do with the modern state of television as opposed to YouTubers’ abilities to cross platforms.
Congrats again, Tyler!
