What is John Roblox’s real name?

John Roblox’s real name is John Smith, and he’s also known on the internet as GDILIVES. He was born in Texas, USA, on 12 August 2000 – his zodiac sign is Leo, and he holds American nationality. He’s a YouTuber and a social media star, who’s probably known best for his YouTube channel, which he launched on 3 January 2014. It’s today subscribed to by more than 760,000 people, and numbers over 350 million views of all his videos combined. John mostly uploads his gameplays, as well as some edited content.

Early life and education

John was raised in Texas by his parents, about whom nothing’s known as he respects their privacy. Because he hasn’t mentioned having any siblings, most of his fans believe him to be an only child.

He began playing video games when he was six years old, and it didn’t take long for both him and his parents to realize that he was talented. John was only 13 years old when he launched his YouTube channel, and began uploading videos. He attended a local high school, and was physically quite active during his four years there, as he played both football and soccer.

John matriculated in 2018, and chose not to pursue a college degree, but to focus on his career as a YouTuber.

Most popular YouTube videos

John’s mostly popular for the videos he’s made related to Roblox, and some of these have significantly enlarged his fanbase. We’re going to mention three of the most popular videos on his main YouTube channel.

John’s #1 video “Arsenal ROBLOX Coffin Dance Meme” has been seen over 13.5 million times since 20 April 2020 – it’s only 11 seconds long, but has still become a meme, as it’s so popular.

His second most viewed video – “1V1 WITH THE OWNER OF ARSENAL.. | ROBLOX” – has been watched over 6.6 million times since 3 November 2019, and follows John as he’s battling heads on the creator of the Roblox game Arsenal.

John’s third most popular video, “MAKING A HACKER RAGE QUIT, TOXIC PLAYERS | ARSENAL ROBLOX”, has been watched more than 4.3 million times since 16 February 2020 – the title’s quite self-explanatory.

His second YouTube channel

John has another YouTube channel, entitled “okaythisisepic”, which he launched on 7 May 2014. It’s today subscribed to by more than 42,000 people, and numbers over 6.7 million views of all his videos combined.

John also uploads his gameplay videos onto this channel, and its most popular video – “when you join john roblox in arsenal and start taunting him” – has been watched close to 600,000 times since 27 June 2020. It’s a 10-second video of a player who’s teasing a gorilla in the Roblox game Arsenal – the gorilla hits the player in the end.

Career as a social media star

John’s less active on various social media networks, and has only around 150 followers on Instagram; he’s uploaded only 17 pictures, most of these featuring John and his two cats.

He launched his Twitter account in December 2019, but it’s today followed by only eight people. John tends to tweet about once every a couple of months.

He has a Facebook profile, but seems to be using it just to keep in touch with his closest friends and family members. John also has a TikTok account, followed by close to 2,000 people, and which numbers close to 10,000 likes of all his videos combined.

Love life and girlfriend

John’s quite secretive when it comes to his love life, and hasn’t spoken of any girls (or boys) whom he has perhaps dated. Some of his fans on the internet have been rude, and have advised John to leave YouTube behind him, and to find himself a girlfriend.

Some of John’s fans believe him to be gay, mostly because of his appearance and his behavior, which they claim to be ‘kind of gay’. John hasn’t commented on the rumors concerning his sexual orientation, which has made more of his fans believe that he’s not straight.

There are also some who think that John’s perhaps in a long-term relationship with his high school sweetheart, and that he simply prefers to keep her away from the media’s attention. A fan has even claimed to have seen the two walking hand in hand, however, no evidence has been provided to support this, nor has John commented on the matter.

As of June 2021, he seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
