Top Ten Most Overrated Youtubers

The Top Ten
1 PewDiePie Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg (born October 24, 1989), better known by his online alias PewDiePie, is a Swedish web-based comedian video producer, and commentary channel. He is best known for his Let's Play commentaries and Vlogs on YouTube. He is known for being the most subscribed-to YouTuber on the website, ...read more.

Swears a lot, unfunny jokes, make racist videos/jokes, doesn't like anyone to get better than him and has a retarded fanbase. He also demands his fans to hate other channels which performs better than him. Horrible channel!

If you do not like PewDiePie, then don't bloody watch him. I hate it when people whine about how overrated something or someone is. I can understand if the thing that is overrated is something that is extremely hard avoiding. I do not understand when something is fairly easy avoiding. Especially since in this case, you have to PURPOSELY watch videos about PewDiePie. Stop watching him if you don't like him! Simple as that. You do not need to insult him as a person or people who like him just because of your opinion. I'm not a big fan of PewDiePie yet I do not go around whinging on about how overrated and how annoying he is. If you don't like him, don't watch him! Basic logic.

The first time I saw a pewdiepie video was in the summer of 2011, it was a black ops montage, Wasn't really good at all but basic. He started doing his "reaction" videos and his acting in them is worse than pornstars. He seems like he's scared but everyone with a brain knows that he does it to make the video seem more interesting. Anyways, he screams like a 5 year old and find's it his job to curse every 15 seconds considering that most of his fanbase probably is under 10. And if you don't believe in my brother's first grade class a staggering majority of them watch that crap. Not hating on his success but, the videos are just stupid I fail to even simply crack a laugh.

Pewdiepie's jump to popularity is kind of surprising considering the fact that he's hasn't been around nearly long as other big name youtubers such as Nigahiga or Smosh. Pewdiepie's videos consist of him making loud noises, editing his videos in bizzare ways and using profanity so many times to the point where he's just embarrassing himself in front of the world. I don't hate him as a person, not one bit. Felix has given large amounts of his money to charities and other good causes, there's no doubt that he's a good person when talking about morals. It's just that when he takes on his pewdiepie persona, it comes off as awkward and uninspired. You could easily replicate his style by eating copious amounts of sugar, and then film yourself playing what game the Internet has deemed popular.

2 Smosh Smosh is an American sketch comedy YouTube channel created by Ian Andrew Hecox and Daniel Anthony Padilla. Anthony Padilla created a website called smosh.com in 2002. He was later joined by his friend Ian Hecox.

Even though, they are nearing 20,000,000 subscribers now, they are pretty bad, with lame ideas. Smosh is the biggest disappointment in YouTube history. They were one of the first successful YouTubers. Their older stuff was very good and include some of my best YouTube memories. Unfortunately, now they only attract 12 year olds, with pathetic jokes and all their videos must have something sexual.

They were funny for a few years, even their gaming channel was funny for a while. However, in their quest to be a big brand they lost a lot of what made them entertaining. Their gaming channel also became to drama filled with a major lack of quality gaming information. They just yell at Joven and curse at each other now, they don't even attempt a serious information driven show anymore. Sad.

I remember when Smosh was good. That was before mid-2014. Now they resort to a gaming channel and what they think the viewers want. They still occasionally get a good video.

Their videos are cringy and not funny at all. The worst video they ever made is Stuck In a Toilet where Anthony slams a car door on his dick. That is not funny at all, that is scary and painful.

3 Tobuscus

So, Tobuscus is trying to be the dumb character who misunderstands everything to an extreme. The one series that actually worked in was Tobuscus Adventures. He had his "straight man" aka more serious character to play off of. Also, these animated shorts had crazy setups that allowed for a lot more humorous payoff, like how Tobuscus goes to Canada just to avoid writing down his signature on a phone contract, or how they get increasingly larger zombie invasions every few weeks, or how Tobuscus's crazy idea of slashing open a Dr. Pepper truck ACTUALLY saves the world. His other videos, especially his gameplay videos, lack these elements, making them completely BORING! I would love to see him make more Tobuscus Adventures, but I doubt that will happen.

He's been on the decline ever since deciding to play roblox. He was good a long time ago. But now he's a train wreck.

Tobuscus used to be good. However, in 2014/2015, he went downhill FAST, and today, he's probably so forgotten.

I liked his gaming channel. Then I discovered his main channel. Then I started hating him.

4 Markiplier Mark Edward Fischbach (born June 28, 1989), known online as Markiplier, is an American YouTube personality. Originally from Honolulu, Hawaii, he began his career in Cincinnati, Ohio, and is currently based in Los Angeles, California.

He doesn't deserve to be on this list. He works hard to make videos, he's entertaining, he's actually skilled with what he does, and he probably has the biggest heart as a YouTuber. He's generous with all of the charity events he has done. I find it annoying that he became famous from FNAF, which means that he is eventually hated by the rabid FNAF haters. He shouldn't get blamed for a rabid fanbase. While it boosted his popularity, it brought along the people who hate everything popular. He worked hard to get where he was. It took him time and effort, but it all payed off.

1. Burping, screaming and cursing. That's his trademark.
2. Worst camera edits in the history ( he zooms in his face when he burps, literally every 2 minutes) and he zooms in when he curses... every 4 seconds.
3. His gameplay sucks he don't play the games, always skipping the game main story. He also says that every game is a rip- off from another game. "I saw that Tree in another game before. I saw that dark room in game xy. This reminds me to the game..."

You see. Youtube is a weird place. You get 9-12 mil views for useless videos like washing a dog, eating a pizza or even washing your teeths when you burp and curse enough while screaming. I stop watching him in 2014-2015 or so and he still appears at my youtube frontpage from time to time. He is so annoying.

Kinda sad. He used to be this cool, relaxed dude who made a few jokes and screamed once in a while, now he's PDP 2.0. Now it's just screaming and screaming. He can pretend all he wants on how he "never changes" but yea... People who were there from the beginning know the truth. I guess if you tell yourself a lie long enough you eventually believe it.

Seriously, Like PewDiePie, They both appeal to the lowest common denominator. And to an extent, Has a Cringy fandom and the Cringy fandom smears like wildfire on whatever he (Along with PewDiePie) plays. Be it Undertale, FNAF, Bendy, Cuphead, Etc.

I don't know the guy personally I can't say he's a bad person alone but I'm not a fan regardless.

5 CaptainSparklez

Absolutely no emotion in his commentary, I used to watch his music videos but he got copyright struck on all of them so they suck too. 2/10

Jumped on the trend train for 77th time to start milking minecraft again after pewdiepie Starts playing it.

Nah. I don't watch his videos that often but CaptainSparklez seems like a really nice guy.

The music videos helped his channel, but he is pretty entertaining, and in my opinion is one of the least overrated YouTubers

6 SkyDoesMineCraft

So here is a funny story. Sky isn't a kid friendly channel, right? Constant cussing and swearing, something I certainly wouldn't introduce to my younger siblings. But I see a skydoesminecraft figure in the Walmart halls with kids toys. So not only does he has a younger child fanbase, but he also does Minecraft, the most overrated game, I swear... And he insults squids. Now there are people getting mad on the internet because I said that I like ACTUAL SQUIDS. Now, people use "butter" as a replacement for gold, which may have been funny if I just saw that for the first time, but now it is utterly horrid. Maybe I am the only person that didn't like these people in grade school. And I always found this PERSON very irritating. And my 12 year old friends like to talk about you tubers excessively...

Are you kidding?! How is Sky 2nd on most overrated youtubers ever... I guess looking at the comments they seem to be really old. Everyone is complaining about how he keeps saying butter and cussing, and even I thought it was annoying. But for the past 2 years, he stopped doing that and he got way worse. It turns out he was way funnier with the whole butter thing and cussing. Thank god he is cussing again!

The now number one most annoying thing about this confounded overrated moron is not the butter or his lack of video quality. It's how that now he's included in those "If Mincraft had" videos as though he's now a major part of Mincraft. What's the point in making a video called "If skydoesmincraft taken over Mojang? " I'll tell you what. Gold will be called butter, squids wouldn't exist and Mincraft would fall down the drain... My bad. His fans are actually the most annoying thing about him.

See, this is the kind of channel that should be on this list. Certainly not Jacksepticeye, Markiplier, and DanTDM! Those guys are like the most genuine YouTubers I know!

7 Fred

All this channel has are videos of an early teenage boy who acts immature and edits his voice into a helium effect. How original and stupid and annoying and obnoxious.

After Fred sold his channel to these kids, I can never watch old Fred videos with thinking of these 3 new annoying kids.

While he WAS overrated he barley gets over 100,000 views on his videos. So currently I wouldn't call him overrated.

I used to be a pretty big fan of Fred until a few years ago, I began to realize how obnoxious he really is.

8 ShaneDawsonTV Shane Lee Yaw, known professionally as Shane Dawson, is an American YouTuber, writer, comedian, actor, director, musician, and media personality who began making Youtube videos in 2008.

No talent, got famous with clickbait. Lots of people work hard to gain popularity, Also makes racist jokes, like blackface, and constantly thinks that sex jokes are hilarious. Then he gets famous off of eating horribly unhealthy foods, where they have thumbnails that make you want to puke. No originality, not funny, no talent.

I love Shane Dawson and I respect his success. But to be honest he's just so overrated. He's not THAT funny. I hate it when people say he's "The King Of YouTube". There are so many YouTubers who are ten times funnier and they hardly get any recognition, and suddenly he's just blown up and anything he does is going to be idolised.

I respect you if you love him and all but to be honest Shane Dawson is overrated as hell. I'm just so tired of seeing him everywhere and I bet he isn't even that funny. I'm sorry but I think that my tiredness of seeing him everywhere is what shaped my opinion of him.

He's not funny, & none of the others in his 'clique' are either. His now ex girlfriend, cute girl, seems nice, but let's be honest, no one would watch her if it weren't for him. Same with that Brittney lady (I forget her last name) that makes the (unfunny) parodies.

9 RayWilliamJohnson

RWJ is not funny and most of his jokes are sexual and he curses a lot. I mean if you watch that video and take the inappropriate comments and cursing out you would have a boring video. If the only way to entertain is to do that then it's probably very easy to do stuff like that.

Once the most subscribed youtuber ripped off someone who (at the time) had less than 1 million subs. Wow - Unnamed Google User Remade

Yo mama so short, she's raywilliamjohnson's stunt double, she's also funnier and more talented, then again, who isn't?

Robbie was was better then Ray could ever dream of being. Really dislike the new host.

10 Jontron Jonathan "Jon" Jafari, best known by his internet pseudonym JonTron, is an American comedian, reviewer, and internet personality.

If anything, he is underrated. Look at Starcade. Even though it wasn't too humor-heavy, the production process was crazy with all of the props, costumes, etc. It takes a thing called effort to make the content that he does. All of the editing, skits, time; it's a lot of work. 2 million subscribers is NOTHING compared to the fanbase Pewdiepie has. Pewdiepie has 20 times the amount of subscribers that Jontron has. While he doesn't produce constant content, he never fails to make me and my friends laugh. It's called quality over quantity.

I can see why people can consider him "overrated". Mostly because of lines such as "WHAT...WHAT THE F***?! " which have already become popular memes, as well as his hijinks with Egoraptor in the early days of Game Grumps.

But do you know what? Those are memes from quality videos. I neither think JonTron is overrated or underrated. I will never stop enjoying his videos. From Anti-Drug PSAs to Plug-and-Play games to the animated Titanic animated movie, I will just never stop enjoying this guy. Easily one of my favorite YouTubers ever.

Hate to admit but I can agree with him being on the list. he has his rare moments but between the huge wait times between uploads and the overall quality tanking over the years I can see why he's up here.

The only reason I voted on this is because JonTron is the opposite. He's underrated, but funny, kind, but pretends to be mean, and again, he is FUNNY!

The Contenders
11 Onision Gregory Daniel Jackson, known by his YouTube username Onision, is an American YouTuber and Internet personality.

He tries (and fails) to be funny by being a ripoff of Shane Dawson, and I don't like Shane Dawson. However at least Shane Dawson doesn't make a channel expecting people to take his advice seriously and where he rages at his "haters". Right like I'm gonna listen to the I'm A BANNANA retard.

I'm not sure if he is considered "overrated" because pretty much everybody hates him. He just does stuff for attention and views and starts beef for no reason. His videos are good but not great.

I see why some people may dislike onision but I used to cut and I've seen his videos on cutting and body Image on his Chanel onision speaks and it's the truth what good will that do? So overall he is one of my favourite YouTubers and I think he deserves more subs

Laughing and making fun of a FAN who came to you for help cause they were depressed isn't cool. And no, Onision, we do not deserve to die because we eat bacon! Mrrepzion is so much better!

12 Vanossgaming Evan Fong, is a Canadian internet personality and video game commentator with 24 million subscribers. He is best known under his online pseudonym VanossGaming, where he posts montage-style videos on YouTube.

I feel Vanoss deserved to be on here because honestly, his content has gotten dull and repetitive, he always make the same dull, yet forced and unfunny jokes, especially in his most recent videos, I used to enjoy his videos when he was still making Black Ops II videos, but after he stopped making them, he is just became boring and not entertaining to watch. It feels like I am watching the same crap, over and over again.

I also think, the people he often collaborate with, IAMWILDCAT, H20 Delirious, Daithi De Nogla, etc. makes the same exact content as Vanoss, the only difference is that they do it in their own unique way, still it is all just repetitive.

I don't know why he is here. He makes original content and can think of funny things at the right time. You people can't see that. He does have some bad jokes but they might be at the wrong time. If you are offended by him then don't WATCH HIM. His humor is his own that lots of people find funny. The content he makes is original and with good intent. He plays gmod. Who plays gmod and makes it funny? He can also find new and exciting ways to play popular games with one purpose. He shouldn't be on here

Okay... I'm gonna post my feelings about why Vanoss should and shouldn't be on here... I'll start with the Shouldn't be list first is his videos have some really editing for each video, second is that his humor from before can still be funny if applied right, and thirdly is that he actually tries to help his friends, be it minor (though it looks major I know), to get more subs. But can all of those keep him out of the list...? No... Here's why he should be here now... First off is his humor, yes I put this as a positive but he's sort of been using it wrong lately to the point I can't return to a few of his videos anymore... If you saw his latest gang beasts video and hear the word "RAPE" no... He made a JOKE of that and that's LOW TIER crap... Now... Second reason, he's getting stale... All he's been doing is uploading maybe once every day or 2 and then provides a sometimes lacking video... The editing as I said is nice to see but when it's a boring video it just remains ...more

Questionable for putting him on the list has good editing and some funny friends entertaining videos but he's subscriber count is kind of questionable. My only real compliant with vanoss is that he almost exclusively uploads Garry's mod with some sponsored videos mixed in I would like to see some different content mixed in

13 RealAnnoyingOrange

It used to be funny in the very beginning. Now it's annoying in a very bad way. And then, to make things worse, they went to Cartoon Network. Bleargh.

Cancer. Unbelievably annoying, of course it's in the name, but there's nothing remotely funny about the show at all.

This squealy thing because of the seizure enjuicing orange made me never eat an orange again and guess what this thing got it's on full length T.V. series

The jokes and plot of each video are getting quite old.

14 GameGrumps

They have to be one of the least funny channels in existence after Jon left. The entirety of the "humor" on their channel is Arin not knowing what to do after skipping a tutorial and Danny explaining a story about one of the numerous times he smoked weed. The gimmick wasn't funny when it started and it certainly isn't funny now. All of the charm that was there when Jon was still a part of the crew is gone.

Game Grumps was funny just two guys playing games talking about dumb that came to mind or stupid happening in the game, Game Grumps now is Arin terrible jokes/rapping, not knowing what to do in a game 90% of the time. Dan.Barry talking like he's acting drunk while saying something "funny"(reminds me of a sleepy 5yr old), not editing, Kevin Sucks at editing, Ross yells a lot but is the least annoying.

All that swearing is completely unnecessary. Why do those idiots swear so much... Definitely one of the most overrated Youtube channels ever.

I can't understand their fanbase. They're too loud and they laugh at their own lame jokes. Overrated.

15 RoosterTeeth‎ Rooster Teeth Productions, LLC is an American media and entertainment company headquartered in Austin, Texas and owned by Ellation, a division of Otter Media, which itself is a subsidiary of AT&T's WarnerMedia under its Warner Bros.

How dare someone say that RT is overrated. I personally adore RWBY/RWBY Chibi and want to check out Red Vs Blue and maybe Camp Camp.

Love them or hate them, without these guys machinama (and to some extent lets plays) would not exsist. In other words, they are the real O.G.

They talk about how successful they are more than they make me laugh or entertain me.

I think they're amazing and they worked really hard for what they have now.

16 H2O Delirious

I don't know how this guys is so famous and the funniest thing are all of the girls on his Twitter sending him suggestive pictures not even knowing what he looks like cause he's probably some fat. All he does is scream on the top of his lungs every 3 seconds with the most annoying voice I've ever heard in my life... the dude can barely even read. And did I mention all of the cursing? My fiance watches his videos unfortunately and my newborn wakes up in a panic every time cause he's so loud and obnoxious..

He should definitely be on here due to the sheer fact that he relies on the pure fact of doing funny things in games to entertain the crowd, and he would normally just go along with what seems to be "funny" montages of him playing his games. Without this, he's basically like any obnoxious youtuber who just tries to be funny by screaming and reacting in sometimes uttermost annoying ways.

Good editing + annoying giggles + some random kid who haven't hit puberty (not delirious but one of his friends) + other friends who are funny and decent. He reminds me of mentally challenged person. That said, these guys make original content that is edited nicely. Not sure if overrated or annoying.

Delirious is my favorite YouTuber even though others think that he is very irritating. At first, I didn't like H20 delirious videos but when I saw his video with his friends
1.VanossGaming
2.Wildcat
3.Cartoonz
4.Daithi de Nogla
5.Lui Calibre
6.Mini Ladd
7.FiveZeroSeven
8.Moo Snukel

I finally realized that he was for me the Most amazing youtuber in the world. Delirious if you see this, please let me join your group. In 5 to 10 years you will find the name CronosGaming in youtube

17 WatchMojo WatchMojo.com is a Canadian-based privately held video content producer, publisher, and syndicator. With nearly 10 billion all-time video views and 16 million subscribers, WatchMojo has one of the largest channels on YouTube.

In most of their anime lists, they almost always manage to butcher the pronunciation of the names in the anime series. For example, they mispronounced Ganta Igarashi's first name wrong in the Top 10 Underrated Anime Series. Also, they mispronounced Kirito's and Asuna's names at least once in their videos. Finally, their biggest mistake of all was in the Another Top 10 Anime Battles video. They clearly said they would not use battles from anime movies in the list, but nope! They put a battle from End of Evangelion as number 1 even though it is an anime movie! Plus, Simon vs the Anti-Spiral should have been number 1 instead of number 10.

There top ten picks have been getting less agreeable over the years, I have noticed. I find more and more comments disagreeing with them nowadays, with good reasons too.

What's next? Top Ten types of Grass? Top Ten Pizza themed Restaurants? Top Ten Movie Cockroaches? Top Ten streets? Yeah, they're overrated and they are cancerous.

They're so boring the narrators sound like they only work for the dough. They also only say what they want you to hear. Also, 4-5 videos a day?

18 Zoella Zoe Elizabeth Sugg is an English YouTuber, vlogger, businesswoman and author. She is also known by her YouTube username, Zoella.

To be honest, all she does is show us her makeup, hair, andflow much of a social life she has. Maybe it's just my opinion, but I think what she does doesn't require much talent at all. I also feel like she's kind of fake, although nobody seems to agree with me.
People like Emma Blackery and Carrie Fletcher deserve more credit and subscribers than her. They do things like cut/shave their hair for charity (Emma recently shaved it, Carrie is going to cut 7-12 inches off next year), share their opinions on things, make people laugh and genuinely seem like intelligent human beings. Also, they've done things like spoken word before, and it helps a lot of people. But what does Zoe do?

Zoe is so overrated it hurts. Don't get me wrong I am a fan of Zoe's, but she has over 9 million subscribers and I don't see why. She doesn't even have a schedule she for when she uploads and it seems like she's trying to act so cute and innocent which gets annoying. You're almost in your thirties, please stop. I like Zoe, but her behavior just seems so forced and not real. There are a lot of You-Tuber's out there who take the time to upload every day or at least every week and don't have near as much subscribers as Zoe does when sometimes she can't even take the time to upload at lest 4 times a month. Also her channel is very basic, it's pretty much her doing amateur makeup and collabs with other You-Tubers. I just don't get it.

I agree, I just don't understand how someone who does daily vlogs get so many subs compaired to someone who actually puts money in their videos and creates skits - this is reall entertainment.
And don't get me started on her fakeness. She claims to have social anxiety, well I'm not being rude but sorry I have servere social anxiety and I don't make vlogs so loads of people across the world can see my face or brag about my disorder on the news which is what she did. Don't believe me, search it up

The fact that she earns 50,000 pounds a month (600,000 a year) both saddens and angers me. Unbelievably, this is more than what a neurosurgeon earns in a year. Who do you think deserves the higher salary? Someone who posts makeup tutorials and pointless vlogs (just don't) on the internet or one who dedicates the majority of their life to helping other people. Snap back into reality

19 Jake Paul Jake Joseph Paul is an American actor and YouTube personality who rose to internet fame on the now-defunct video application Vine. Paul is known for playing the role of Dirk on the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark.

He is seriously benefiting by introducing children to pornography,and how in the world does he have 29 million subs?His musics are trash and he never care about his viewers,not even bothering to reply once.

Why does he have so many subs who cares about what he's doing Logan too... too much clickbate all he does is walk around his house and do stuff and everyone's obsesssd with him I don't get it. He's not even funny

It is utter BS that he's this far down at 42. I hope he falls off that ledge and drowns so we don't have to hear his retarded voice again

It says a lot when IdubbbzTV is higher (or in this case lower) on the list than Jake Paul.

20 Ninja

I never understood why Fortnite got hyped as much as it did. I mean seriously, isn't it just another FBS games like the many others out there, right? At least FBS games like CS GO and Black Ops have better graphics. For real though, If Ninja would add just a little more variety on his channel, doing something besides Fortnite nowadays, I think I would like him more. But it's just Fortnite with him, unfortunately.

Ninja just needs to get a variety of games going on, then maybe his fans would see that Fortnite isn't the only video game out there.

The guy is completely riding off the insanely overhyped game of Fortnite. Like, is that seriously all he plays? If he considered playing some other games, maybe he wouldn't be so...bland.

His fans are the definition of cringe, all this guy does is sit on his 399 chair he stole from pewdiepie and his white knight fanboys will defend him if anyone says something bad about him

21 TheRunawayGuys

Do you know what overrated even means? They only have 400,000 subscribers: not even a million. If anything, they are underrated. They are actually skilled in playing video games. I watched them for many years and they are extremely informative on video games. They actually mention strategies and secrets, which is something you rarely find in other gamers.

This shouldn't be on the list! Chuggaaconroy. NintendoCaprisun, and ProtonJon are my favorite LPers on YouTube. They are all entertaining and interesting Let's Players that have more talent that overrated dickhead Pewdiepie combined.

22 The Hero of Tomorrow
23 IJustine Justine Ezarik is an American YouTube personality, host, actress, and model. She is best known as iJustine and has over a billion views across her YouTube channels. She gained attention as one of the Internet's most popular lifecasters.

A total waste of time, Apple Sheep, its pretty clear she gets excited for everything lame. She was great, but now click bait

She has the personality of a brick, I don't understand why she's so popular.

Her videos before were okay. Now, they are just clickbait and unfunny.

Hey, I like ijustine

24 KiriyaWave
25 Ali-A Alastair Aiken, better known by his online alias Ali-A, is a British YouTuber known for Call of Duty and Fortnite commentaries and vlogs.

He is the reason my brother wasted 150 dollars on a stupid custom controller.

How dare you put the meme jesus on this list. You are satanic. You support T-series. Shrek is mos dishonored

He is awesome. He is the reason I gave mine craft another chance
