Stevin was formerly known as Stephen Grossman, but because of an unfortunate scandal, he legally changed it to Stevin John.

His girlfriend is Alyssa Ingham and they have been dating since 2015 up to the present time.
He is still unmarried and without kids. He and Alyssa are still enjoying their romantic relationship of over 4 years now.
There was an event during his 2019 tour where people called it ‘bait and switch advertising. Parents have paid a huge amount of money for the tickets and found out during the show and actual performance, that the person presenting is an impersonator.
In their defense, the promoter and producer have already stated during advertisements and announcements that Stevin would not be on the tour.
Still, those who felt the unjust have their tickets refunded.
Blippi is a character that John plays in his video. His presentation of himself is a fun, energetic, childlike, and curious person who is dressed in his signature orange and blue beanie cap, bow tie, orange suspenders, and blue shirt. Little did everyone know that his family was always there to support him. His mother was the one who designed his first costume, which then became its iconic trademark.
The concept of Blippi was created when Stevin moved back to Ellensburg. He saw his nephew watching low-quality YouTube videos. From then on, he dressed up as a bright colored person who dances around the different areas and environments in America.
He published his first Blippi video in January of 2014. Initially, Stevin has to do both the acting, all the filming, and editing of the video. He took inspiration from other children entertainers and educators like that of ‘Mr. Rogers’. However, Stevin wants to give Blippi the image of an educational, child thinking, and acting person. Blippi is a millennial version of a character, its learning approach is far different than your normal wholesome and educational content that parents usually search on YouTube. Through his content children will learn through colors while Blippi runs through an open area of the playground, parks, and construction sites.
Stevin already had a background in online content and brand development when he started Blippi. He aimed to create videos that will bring positive memories and emotions with a touch of learning.
Before he became Blippi, Stevin like many others have faced challenges establishing his career. He went on to work several jobs. After his service in the military, Stevin worked as a cameraman and this is where he learned how to take videos and edit.
In 2020, Blippi was acquired by Moonbug Entertainment, Ltd. to build up a children multimedia platform within YouTube.
He served the military on active duty as a loadmaster for the airplane C-17 Globemaster in the United States Air Force, 4th Airlift Squadron. He is now a military veteran.
He is tasked with the planning and calculation of cargo placement so that the aircraft will have a permissible center of gravity and will have no problems taking off or flying.
In 2013, Stevin began creating gross-out videos. His character name is ‘Steezy Grossman’, it was a story of a boy that was made or born as a poop when his parents had anal sex. With the name Steezy Grossman, Stevin was able to produce ‘Underwear Man’ and ‘Turdboy’.
In the same year, Stevin made a Harlem shake video in a toilet with his friend and decided to defecate on him. It was soon realized by Stevin that the video he thought was funny to do, was tasteless and stupid. He regrets doing and creating the video. With the help of DMCA, the video was removed from all social media, internet searches, and search engines.
