Top 10 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 for nearly 6 years, even though T-Series surpassed him and now has 240 million subscribers. As of March 2023, PewDiePie has over 111 million subscribers. more.

Pewdiepie used to be good but he gives up so easily. Not to mention, his diss tracks "Bitch Lasanga" and "Congratulations" literally rely on making fun of India, instead of actually making fun of T-Series, who the diss track is actually supposed to be targeted to. I'd love to make a 1 hour video essay criticizing this dude, but he kind of gave up on YouTube at this point so it's not worth it.

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.

Oh my god! How can anyone find somebody as annoying as pewdiepie funny? All he does is make stupid faces, make annoying voices and swear every 5 seconds. You don't need any talent to do that. He actually has to play video games to get a living. I bet that he got kicked out of his parents house with only his computer. He is a money hungry idiot and I hope that he stops making videos. They're not funny. Do not watch his videos. He's just trying to get attention and money. Pewdiepie get a life.

2 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.

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.

My sister forced me to watch markiplier and all he did was scream and curse he was also being very annoying and my sister just said it was because he has adhd. No, it's because he is annoying!

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.

3 Smosh Smosh is an American sketch comedy YouTube channel created by Ian Andrew Hecox and Daniel Anthony Padilla. Anthony Padilla created a website called 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.

Uploading a video every week makes your humor bland and dry after a year. When they knew they needed more money they hopped on the gravy train of let's plays

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

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.

Since his last great video Space Ace two years ago, JonTron has been morphing into a typical sold-out YouTuber.

God I hated this guy since I saw him. He is just a crappy avgn rip off.

I think he's on the list because of a few "comments" he made a while back

5 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.

6 Mr. Beast

Ever since Mr beast past 100 million subs, his content has just become dry. I like the dude a lot but its like every other Youtuber, once they hit their goal their just posting random videos that aren't even close to funny or amusing.

7 SkyDoesMineCraft Adam Dahlberg (born: January 17, 1993), better known online as Sky Does Everything or NetNobody (formerly SkyDoesMinecraft), is an American YouTuber, video game commentator, and former animator who gained prominence for their precursory Minecraft appeal, referring the Minecraft gold ingot item as "budder" and hating squids in the game. They also sang the song "New World" as a Minecraft parody at Minecon 2013. They are also a musician going by the name NetNobody.

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...

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.

All Minecraft videos are a cancerous shadow that I'm afraid will forever be looming over YouTube. As long as the propagation of mindless 12 year-olds continue, then so will the videos. I foresee a dark future indeed...

Argh, the fanboys! They are so annoying and obnoxious that they keep screaming "BUDDER BUDDER" all the time even if it was already over!
And once again his videos are boring and contains a lot of tasteless gags and swearing. He also kills squids for no reason!

8 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.

Kind of boring and lackluster commentary not very entertaining

9 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.

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

God, I can't believe I used to like this guy. I must've been one stupid 10 year old.

10 ShaneDawsonTV Shane Lee Yaw (born July 19, 1988), known professionally as Shane Dawson, is an American YouTuber, writer, comedian, actor, director, musician, and media personality who began making Youtube videos in 2008. He became one of the first people to rise to fame on the video-sharing platform YouTube.

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.

The Contenders
11 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.

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

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

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

12 Onision Gregory James Daniel (born November 11, 1985), is a controversial American YouTuber. His primary YouTube channel, "Onision", featured sketches and satirical clips; videos posted to his other channels focus on personal stories covering controversial topics as well as discussion with his viewers. His online content has attracted controversy and criticism from online media outlets and viewers alike, as well as many allegations of misconduct in his private life.

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!

13 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.

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

Content for 10 year olds, constant laughing and stupid editing. Deserves to be in the top 10 cause he's overrated for humor, pitiful and forced stupid humor that excites children.

He was my favorite YouTuber for such a long time up until recently. Now he pretty much uploads only Garry's Mod. And he doesn't even try different things anymore. It's always Prop Hunt or Guess Who.

14 RealAnnoyingOrange

so weird I can't believe I used to watch this guy when I was younger now that I look back at it this guy is hella weird no offense.

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.

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

15 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.

16 Jake Paul Jake Joseph Paul (born January 17, 1997) is an American social media personality and professional boxer. He initially rose to fame on Vine, before playing the role of Dirk Mann on the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark for two seasons. Throughout his career, Paul has become the subject of many controversies due to his behavior, including being charged with criminal trespass and unlawful assembly.

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

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

Why was he the 35th person you thought of he should be the first.

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

17 JackSepticEye Seán William McLoughlin, born February 7, 1990, better known by his online pseudonym Jacksepticeye, is an Irish YouTube personality, known primarily for his comedic Let's Play series and vlogs. His most popular series include Happy Wheels, Five Nights at Freddy''s and Fortnite.

The only people who could like jacksepticeye are middle schoolers, his content is childish as he replaces interesting content with screams. His content mirrors pewdiepie with a slightly better fan base.

He shouldn't be on here and he warns you about his screaming content in most of his videos. And grown ups like JackSepticEye not just kids.

Ok, I see some people saying that the swearing is unnesisarry, and he's too loud but that's JUST WHO HE IS! It's kind of like me saying to someone black 'you're too black take that skin off' that's just how that person is! It itsn't gonna change the fact that they will stay the same and nethir will it change Jack! (Praying he stays his happy energetic self)

People always call him nice, but when I met him he was a total prick to me!

18 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.

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

19 WatchMojo 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.

Seriously? 4-5 videos a day? I'd rather be subscribed to a YouTuber who only uploads once per year and makes outstanding content than a YouTuber who uploads 5 garbage videos per day.

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.

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?

20 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 gets so many subscribers compared to someone who actually invests money in their videos and creates skits. This is real 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 severe social anxiety, and I don't make vlogs for loads of people across the world to see my face or brag about my disorder on the news like 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

21 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.

I agree with the screaming. Mostly screams profanities, I honestly don't understand how people watch his videos. Gameplay + annoying screaming of profanities = every video he posts.

22 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.

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.

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.

He's a nice guy, but he literally just plays fortnite.

23 LeafyIsHere Calvin Lee Vail (born August 18, 1995), known online as LeafyIsHere or simply Leafy, is an American former YouTuber and former Twitch streamer who, from the years 2011 to 2017, and 2020, made reaction, drama, and gaming videos, but is mostly known for commentary.

Leafy's channel is full of offensive jokes, bully's people, and just being a huge prick in general. Another thing is that he's toxic, and make sure others toxic. I won't lie when I say I used to watch him, and from it I became extremely toxic. Thank god I stopped watching him.

I think he's so offensive and such a bully towards others. The ONLY video I found where I find it's not as offensive- IS THE CLOWN VIDEO! But even that's slightly offensive. He also did a video bulling this autistic kid and... Guess what? I'm AUTISTIC! So not only do I take offense to that- BUT I HATE HIM EVEN MORE! Why is he all the way down here? In my opinion, he should be at #3 for me

It's just the same suicide jokes over and over. Once you watch one of his videos you watched all of them.

Leafyishere doesn't deserve the subscribers and all he does online is talking about other people. And he has no chins

24 iDubbbzTV Ian Carter, better known online as iDubbbz, is an American YouTube personality and comedian, most well known as the creator of YouTube channels iDubbbzTV, iDubbbzTV2, and iDubbbzgames, as well as comedy video series Content Cop, Bad Unboxing and Kickstarter Crap.

I genuinely don't understand why everyone thinks he's so funny. His humour is crass, obnoxious and overly negative and mean spirited. And yet he's praised as though he's a comedy "god." Am I missing something here? Last time I checked, people hated that kind of humour. And yet everyone loves him even having the insufferable gall to say that he is somehow *Underrated*!

He rides off the success of other channels and it's not even funny! His biggest hit "content cop" is pathetic and his roasts are painfully dull. I also get the vibe that the YouTube creator community thinks of him as garbage.

He's so obnoxious and annoying.

A true bully at that
