David Dobrik is one of YouTube’s biggest stars, best known for his hilarious, fast-paced vlogs — but now, he’s taking his talents to reality television with a brand-new competition show centered around the classic schoolyard game of dodgeball.

Yep, you read that right; David Dobrik will soon become a television game show host for none other than the Discovery Channel, where he will pit groups of players against each other in an extreme version of dodgeball.

The show, titled “Dodgeball: Thunderdome,” will throw down on a 13.8-acre arena, and its competitors will include both professional athletes and contestants who may not be so sports-savvy.

When will the first episode air?

The first episode of Dodgeball: Thunderdome (hearkening back to the Mad Max title of Hollywood fame) will air on Wednesday, August 9 at 9 PM. Although Dobrik is a YouTuber first and foremost, fans will have to catch the action on TV via the Discovery Channel — not your laptop or smartphone.

How will it work?

This isn’t any ordinary game of dodgeball: The Hollywood Reporter teased that, in this competition series, “winners are not determined simply by their strength and the losers aren’t always picked last,” hinting that there will be more challenges than just throwing a ball at the opposition.

“I’m super excited to be working with Discovery on Dodgeball Thunderdome,” Dobrik said of the upcoming show, as told by THR. “Dodgeball was always everyone’s favorite game in gym class and hosting this show brings back many sweaty memories of dominating in Vernon Hills.”

How many episodes is Dobrik’s new show?

As revealed by The Hollywood Reporter on August 4, the show will be nine episodes long, with the final episode bringing back each winner for a special knockdown, drag-out battle of the champs.

David Dobrik is no stranger to athletics and entertainment: the YouTuber partnered up with celebrity comic Kevin Hart for his YouTube series “What the Fit?” in March.

Considering Dobrik’s penchant for crazy antics and insane pranks, this new series comes as little surprise from the YouTuber who’s teamed up with the likes of Kevin Hart and even Howie Mandell in previous collaborations.

Mark your calendars and set an alarm — this is one insane show fans won’t want to miss!

Logan Paul has risen to fame as one of the most prominent YouTubers and online personalities of the 21st Century. His success brings financial rewards, and his growing exotic car collection reflects this. 

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
