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... read more

The first time I saw a PewDiePie video was in the summer of 2011. It was a Black Ops montage. It wasn't really good at all but basic. He started doing his "reaction" videos, and his acting in them is worse than porn stars. He seems like he's scared, but everyone with a brain knows that he does it to make the video seem more interesting. Anyway, he screams like a 5-year-old and finds it his job to curse every 15 seconds, considering that most of his fanbase probably is under 10. If you don't believe me, in my brother's first-grade class, a staggering majority of them watch that crap.

I'm not hating on his success, but the videos are just stupid. I fail to even simply crack a laugh.

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.

Burping, screaming, and cursing - that's his trademark. Worst camera edits in history: he zooms in on his face when he burps, literally every 2 minutes, and he zooms in when he curses... every 4 seconds. His gameplay is terrible. He doesn't play the games, always skipping the main story. He also says that every game is a rip-off of another game. "I saw that tree in another game before. I saw that dark room in game XY. This reminds me of the game..."

YouTube is a weird place. You get 9-12 million views for useless videos like washing a dog, eating a pizza, or even brushing your teeth when you burp and curse enough while screaming. I stopped watching him in 2014-2015 or so, and he still appears on my YouTube front page from time to time. He is so annoying.

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 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, and their older stuff was very good and includes 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, and 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 too 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.

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

I hate to admit it, 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.

5 Tobuscus

Tobuscus is trying to be the dumb character who misunderstands everything to an extreme. The one series where that actually worked was Tobuscus Adventures. He had his "straight man," aka more serious character, to play off of.

These animated shorts had crazy setups that allowed for a lot more humorous payoff, like how Tobuscus goes to Canada just to avoid writing 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.

6 MrBeast

Ever since MrBeast passed 100 million subs, his content has just become dry. I like the dude a lot, but it's like every other YouTuber. Once they hit their goal, they're 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"... read more

Here is a funny story. Sky isn't a kid-friendly channel, right? There is constant cussing and swearing, something I certainly wouldn't introduce to my younger siblings. But I see a SkyDoesMinecraft figure in the Walmart aisles with kids' toys. So not only does he have 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.

People use "butter" as a replacement for gold, which may have been funny if I had just seen that for the first time, but now it is utterly horrid. Maybe I am the only person who didn't like these people in grade school. I always found this person very irritating, and my 12-year-old friends like to talk about YouTubers excessively.

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 the 77th time to start milking Minecraft again after PewDiePie started playing it.

Kind of boring and lackluster commentary. Not very entertaining.

9 Fred Fred Figglehorn is a fictional character created and portrayed by American actor Lucas Cruikshank. He rose to prominence in the early days of YouTube. In 2013, Cruikshank retired the character because he could no longer do the Fred voice. There was also a Fred movie trilogy that lasted from 2010 to... read more

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

After Fred sold his channel to these kids, I can never watch old Fred videos without thinking of these three 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.

10 Shane Dawson TV 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 idolized.

The Contenders
11 Ray William Johnson

Ray William Johnson is not funny, and most of his jokes are sexual, and he curses a lot. If you watch his videos 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 Ray William Johnson'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.

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... read more

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.

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

He's a very toxic person who seems to like tearing people down and bullying others using YouTube.

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 makes 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 just became boring and not entertaining to watch. It feels like I am watching the same thing over and over again.

I also think the people he often collaborates with, like IAMWILDCAT, H2O Delirious, Daithi De Nogla, etc., make 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.

14 Real Annoying Orange

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

Unbelievably annoying. Of course, it's in the name, but there's nothing remotely funny about the show.

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

15 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... read more

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 clickbait. All he does is walk around his house and do stuff, and everyone's obsessed 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.

16 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 with just two guys playing games, talking about dumb things that came to mind, or stupid happenings in the game. Game Grumps now is Arin with terrible jokes and rapping, not knowing what to do in a game 90% of the time.

Dan and Barry talk as if they're acting drunk while saying something "funny" (reminds me of a sleepy 5-year-old). Kevin is bad at editing, and Ross yells a lot but is the least annoying.

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.

Ok, I see some people saying that the swearing is unnecessary, 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 isn't going to change the fact that they will stay the same, and neither will it change Jack! (Praying he stays his happy energetic self.)

18 Rooster Teeth 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 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 pronounced 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.

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, and how 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?

21 H2O Delirious

He should definitely be on here due to the sheer fact that he relies on doing funny things in games to entertain the crowd. He usually just goes 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 the most annoying ways.

I don't know how this guy is so famous. The funniest thing is all of the girls on his Twitter sending him suggestive pictures, not even knowing what he looks like because he's probably some guy you wouldn't expect. All he does is scream at 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 fiancée watches his videos, unfortunately, and my newborn wakes up in a panic every time because he's so loud and obnoxious.

22 Ninja

I never understood why Fortnite got hyped as much as it did. I mean, seriously, isn't it just another FPS game like the many others out there, right? At least FPS games like CS:GO and Black Ops have better graphics. For real though, if Ninja would add just a little more variety to 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. Is that seriously all he plays? If he considered playing some other games, maybe he wouldn't be so bland.

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. He bullies people and is just a huge prick in general. Another thing is that he's toxic and makes sure others are 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 it's not as offensive is the clown video! But even that's slightly offensive. He also did a video bullying 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.

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 humor 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 humor. 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.
