Jo Koy’s debut in the list is ascribed by THR to be “due chiefly to 144,000 Facebook post likes, up 128 percent, paced by a June 8 upload showing how to say ‘What did you say?’ in Tagalog that was played for humor.

THR Social Climbers charts rank the most popular personalities and TV shows based on data from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Google Plus. The chart considers engagement in social media accounts along with weekly additions of followers and subscribers.
