Which small YouTube channels grew the fastest in October? Meet 10 creators who explore everything from aliens to mukbangs to the dark secrets of the mind.

This week's list of fastest-growing channels proves that you can reach 1,000 subscribers by going against the grain. Minecraft gaming? Reaction videos? Elaborate pranks and tutorials? They're popular, sure, but there are other ways to grow a channel quickly. You just need the courage to talk about the weird stuff: aliens, jumbo-sized noodles, your last spiritual awakening — things of that nature.

If you don't believe us, check out our list of 10 creators who hit 1,000 subscribers on YouTube last month. They all started from zero and worked their way up by posting authentic, engaging content. And, of course, by keeping things a little weird!
