Who would it be
I would suggest any of the Jimmy Clewes videos.
Everyone learns differently and at their own pace, for me Jimmy Clewes videos fit.
He has several titles available that cover a range of experience levels.
and why
I have watched many (too many) woodturning videos by "YouTube heroes" and "professional demonstrates/instructors" alike. In my experience, far too many of these videos show poor tool use and practices, poor or non existent safety practices, bad habits that they're not aware they're doing (novices and production turners turned instructor).
There is quite a lot of information that needs to be conveyed for a video to be instructional, not just entertaining with a few tips thrown in. I find that the Jimmy Clewes videos are more than instructional but educational. What I like is that he doesn't simply tell you how to perform a certain task but also explains why it's done a certain way.

I enjoy watching Brendon Stemp's videos, he's usually shows proper safe ways to turn items.

The first bowl turning video that I bought was Bill Grumbine's. He takes the process from the log to finished bowl, using terms that I could readily understand and in a casual manner that I could relate to. I've since taken one on one training with Bill and bought his second video.
