Native speaker’s answer

"You know what" is an informal expression used to emphasize the statement that comes after it. It doesn't have a particularly special meaning on it's own, and is sometimes used to get someone's attention before speaking. Ex: You know what? I'm hungry. Ex. She's a great student. And you know what, she placed first in our whole school.
