Where Your Favorite YouTubers From Middle School Are Now
Dan & Phil
Dan Howell and Phil Lester, better known as danisnotonfire and amazingphil, have been regular collaborators since Dan started uploading in 2009 and have also been roommates since 2011. For the uninitiated (aka people who were normal in the sixth grade), Dan has over six million subscribers, while Phil has around four million, and the pair have dabbled in radio, voice acting, books, comedy tours, and their own YouTube Red series in the past ten years, however, Dan notably dropped off the face of YouTube a year ago before reappearing in June 2019. Confirming a constant “phan” theory, Dan came out of the closet in his YouTube return, while Phil, who still regularly uploads to the site, followed suit with his own video a week later. The pair didn’t address the fact that they’re obviously dating and in love during their big reveals, probably because it’s none of our business.
