Alec Paul is a former Cow Chop main cast member and production assistant, appearing in most content with Aleks and the rest of the crew. He was previously an intern, where he was supposedly doing some art for the channel.
Alec made his first appearance in Adult Sex Swing and S***, but was never formally introduced by name. He was then introduced by Aleks in Drift Trike where he helped paint the new shelf. He was also seen in Hot Sauce Original where he eats a plate of bread topped with hot sauce and dried bugs prepared by Aleks and Brett.
In a Reddit post for MEXICAN FOOD WEDDING CAKE, Brett replied to a comment where he references Alec as a "recent intern and now Production Assistant," indicating that he had been hired on to the team. Once that was announced, he made made various appearances in videos, making his first non-BTS appearance as the judge in OH, COWCUTTA!, Alec was also seen in BTS making thumbnails for the channel.
Alec started appearing more and more in content, even replacing James In Wrong Side of YouTube. Once James left Cow Chop, Alec was promoted to main cast, meaning that he did not have to do much work other than appear in videos with Aleks. Later on Jakob and Garrett started appearing more regularly as well. Alec and Jakob started OFFCANNY, their YouTube channel which they will pursue further once Cow Chop supposedly ends.
Alec left Cow Chop in October of 2019, planning to make OFFCANNY his priority.
Alec left OFFCANNY in early January of 2020. The reasons are displayed on the Cow Chop reddit.
