The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
  • While Germán Garmendia loved to make people laugh, as a child, his true interest was in music. He used to play different instruments and formed the band 'Zudex' with his older brother when he was 13 years old. Following his graduation, he started creating music together with his brother and his friends and started uploading their music on the YouTube channel 'Zudex' in August 2006. On a boring day, he created a funny video called 'Obvious Things Of Life' for his friends, and later, after being encouraged by a friend, uploaded it on his YouTube channel 'HolaSoyGerman' on September 9, 2011. His friends started sharing the video with their friends, and it ended up being very popular on the internet within a short period of time. In less than seven years, he has gained 31 million subscribers to his main channel, and 17 million more to his second channel.
  • Following his success as a YouTuber, he became so involved in creating content for his channel that he started to lose interest in creating music for his band 'Zudex' (later 'Feeling Every Sunset'). However, he eventually came back to music and re-launched their band as 'Ancud' after two former members left the band 'Zudex'.

What Makes Germán Garmendia Special
  • Germán Garmendia finds inspiration for his videos from different situations in the daily life. Whenever he comes across something funny, he records it on his phone and stores the idea on his computer, eventually using it when it fits the current theme he is working on. It is his unique blend of innocent humor based on regular everyday issues everyone can relate to that has taken his YouTube channel to runaway success. Issues like ex-girlfriends, school, phobias and addictions make up much of the content of his monologues. However, in his comedic sketches, he often makes fun of himself, but not others. Germán, who had been bullied as a child, insists that he doesn't have any ill-intent against anyone and that his videos are created in good humor.
Controversies & Scandals
  • Germán Garmendia got involved in a bot controversy soon after reaching 1 million subscribers within six months of creating his channel 'HolaSoyGerman'. A YouTuber by the name 'LordDestroyer' accused him of cheating, showing an old video from his channel to prove he uses bot websites. Germán, who deleted the video soon, later made another video stating he was only checking if bots work at all.
  • Germán Alejandro Garmendia Aranis was born on April 25, 1990 in Copiapó, Chile. He lost his father in a car accident on a Christmas Day when he was only three years old. He has an older brother named Diego. His mother had to work at different places to support the family, which caused them to move a lot during his childhood. They eventually settled in the coastal town of Los Vilos, where he spent much of his youth. He attended the El Chañar Basic School and later completed his graduation from Escuela Técnico Profesional (ETP) in 2004. A fan of actors Jim Carrey and Adam Sandler, he moved to Los Angeles, California at the age of 23 to pursue a career in acting.
Love Life
  • He once dated a Mexican girl named Alison Smith, who has her own YouTube channel. The news of their breakup surfaced when he tweeted in reply to a hateful comment on her profile saying despite the fact that she is his ex, she deserves respect. He is currently in a relationship with television show host Lenay Chantelle Olsen, best known for her MTV show '10 on Top'.
