The Ultimate Sidemen are a group of YouTube personalities who rose to prominence through their video game commentaries posted on the video sharing site. They consist of Ethan, Harry, JJ, Josh Simon, Tobi and Vikk. All together these guys are all YouTube legends with over 50 million subscribers combined on all of their channels.

Sidemen House!

Sidemen XIX is a reference to when the group were formed, on October 19th 2013 – in Roman Numerals, XIX means 19!

Formation of the Sidemen.

  • Originally, JJ (KSI) was the only YouTuber. Simon (miniminter) & JJ became friends in Year 8 (aged 12-13). Simon would help him record videos by holding the camera and such.
  • The two eventually ended up connecting with Josh (Zerkaa), who was long-term friends with Tobi (TBJZL).
  • On Josh’s birthday, the four were all in a voice hangout and started watching a stream from Ethan (Behzinga); they then invited him to the group. This group was nicknamed – by Simon – as “The Original Five”.
  • They started recording and playing GTA together, and then invited Vikk (Vikkstar123). He was a fit – despite not being as invested in FIFA/football as the others – so naturally he joined the group, as it was an informal group at the time.
  • The ‘Ultimate Sidemen’ – minus Harry (Wroetoshaw) – officially formed on 19 October 2013. A few months later, in early 2014, they asked Harry to record with them and he too fit in
