Who Will Shane Dawson Collab With Next?
31 August 2018, 09:30
We look at the likely candidates
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know that Shane Dawson has been KILLING the YouTube game recently.
In fact, he hasn’t dipped below 10 million views per video in 3 months(!!!)
His most recent series ‘The Secret World of Jeffree Star’ was released in 5 parts, and it’s garnered a total of over 81 MILLION VIEWS. Insane!
It looks like the internet’s favourite conspiracy theorist is constantly on the rise, so where is he headed next? Well, it looks like we might not have to wait much longer to find out, as Shane just posted a mysterious tweet regarding his latest series idea: “Working on a series that has been one of the most challenging ones yet. Still shooting more of it this week. Wish us luck!"

Suffice it to say, everybody is suitably hyped
i guess the series is gonna be MIND blowing— julia (@septicjpeg) August 29, 2018
So, we have half of the series’ working title: ‘The Mind Of…’
But the mind of who, exactly?
Time to put on our detective caps, because we are here to discuss who could possibly be the subject of Shane’s upcoming videos.
Suspect Number 1: Jake Paul
Shane said he wanted to do a full series on jake Paul and then Jake responded saying he would love to....I hate jake but I think it would be extremely interesting— Sophie Wilson (@ssophiewilsonn) August 29, 2018
Shane has spoken before about wanting to collab with 1/2 of the controversial Paul Brothers, and Jake actually seemed up for it
I know it’s controversial but i really wanna try more things like this on my channel. I wanna try things i’m genuinely fascinated by and interested in. The ups and downs of Jake Paul’s life and persona is something I would LOVE to see from the inside. pic.twitter.com/5Og8qoknNp— Shane Dawson (@shanedawson) July 12, 2018
This online discussion took place over a month ago, which has given them plenty of time to co-ordinate dates for filming a series.
Having said that, Jake Paul was in the UK last week to participate in boxing match (this guy is pretty wild, in case you didn’t know). Considering that Shane says he’s “still shooting” the series - implying that he’s already shot some of the footage this week, while Jake was in another country - it’s not looking too likely.
Still, it’s a possibility, and ‘The Mind Of Jake Paul’ could be a fascinating series to watch. Seriously, I’d like to know what goes through his head sometimes.
Suspect Number 2: Jojo Siwa
The mind of Jojo siwa?— steph😔 (@dailyshaney) August 29, 2018
Perhaps one of the less likely suggestions, Jojo Siwa could very well star in the series.
Shane has openly expressed his enthusiasm towards the Dance Mom’s star, and she even featured at the end of one of his more recent videos.
And, okay, maybe I’m reading into this too much, but Jojo did say “Can’t wait to see you soon,” in the video… She knew she’d see him soon becAUSE THEY’RE COLLABING?!
Probably not, but hey.
Suspect Number 3: Jaclyn Glenn
Jaclyn Glenn is a YouTuber who’s been around since 2011. She has a solid subscriber count of over 700,000, and she is known for discussing serious topics on her channel, such as religion and her atheism.
She and Shane are following each other on Twitter, and she replied to Shane’s tweet about the series saying: “The mind of... an atheist :)”
The mind of... an atheist :)— Jaclyn Glenn (@JaclynGlenn) August 29, 2018
Was this just Jaclyn making a joke? Or was she revealing the name of the series?? WHEN WILL WE KNOW?
Suspect Number 4: Tana Mongeau
Yeah, yeah, I know he literally just did a series with Tana, but it would be really interesting to see her without all the Tanacon drama taking place in the background.
Shane and Tana are good friends, with Shane going to far as to say he feels protective over her, like a daughter.
It would make sense for Shane to want to help Tana out - she didn’t come out in the best possible light in his last series, and her crazy lifestyle would make for a pretty good video.
Plus, with her new single ‘F**k Up’ coming out in less than three days, we can probably expect an album to follow fairly soon. What better way to build hype for her music than to film a series about her life with the king of YouTube?
And of course, the smoking gun to this theory is that Shane has been hanging around Las Vegas recently… Tana’s very place of residency. Coincidence? I think not.
Suspect Number 5: A Serial Killer
Prediction:— 🍯 bun (@atomhrtmother) August 29, 2018
Shane was in Vegas when he said he was filming something new aka the Vegas shooter aka the mind of a killer. still a huge unsolved case that disappeared into the media abyss🗣
Oh my god pls be a serial killer— Ty // Positive Mental Attitude (@whoatylerr) August 29, 2018
That’s right, I saved the best (and most outlandish) theory for last: a full blown serial killer.
Some of Shane’s most popular videos focus on dark topics like murder or conspiracy theories, so is it really that crazy to think he’d want to do a series on the matter?
One fan even went as far as to suggest he might be investigating the gunman responsible for the tragic Las Vegas shooting in 2017. No motive was found for the perpetrator of the attack, and since Shane is in Las Vegas, it’s not totally out of the question.
There are also a few prisons scattered around Las Vegas, and if any YouTuber will be able to get themselves in contact with an inmate, it’s probably Shane.
Shane has not announced an official release date for the series yet, but since he’s still in the filming stage of production, we’ve probably got a couple weeks wait at least.
In the meantime, who do you think Shane’s series is about? Who do you think he should investigate next?
We cannot wait for the series to come out. Shane, you’re an investigative queen!
