The Vlog Squad has a lot of people in it, so here are the names you need to know and what their archetypes are in the vlogs:

First is Scotty Sire, who is the sad friend. They always make jokes about Scotty wanting to die and being unhappy with his life.

Toddy Smith and Corinna Kopf are the overly sexual friends who are known for sleeping around and who are up for doing anything. They are also the attractive friends, notorious for their good looks.

Jason Nash is known for being the old guy and is the Vlog Squad dad. He was a stand-up comedian who started vlogging with Dobrik, and the two of them have since started a podcast.

Trisha Paytas, who is also a relatively new addition, is known for being Jason’s girlfriend and being extremely sexual. She was a stripper and an actress and now has songs out for people to download.

Alex Ernst is the serious friend. He is known for his deadpan humor, breaking a small white table over and over again, and caring greatly for his bunny. 

Josh Peck is the famous friend, who was a Nickelodeon child star in Drake and Josh. Josh contributes comedic songs, and Dobrik would pretend to use Josh’s fame to get famous, but the roles have since switched as Josh now pretends to use Dobrik’s fame to stay relevant.

Similar to Josh Peck, Liza Koshy is independently famous from Dobrik’s vlogs. Koshy was Dobrik’s girlfriend until June, when they announced through Dobrik’s channel that they had broken up a few months prior to the announcement. In addition to being Dobrik’s girlfriend, Koshy was famous for her puns in their vlogs to grocery stores or Target.
