Kjellberg, a 29-year-old Swede, gained fame for his videos on YouTube which feature funny commentary while playing video games. His YouTube channel PewDiePie is close to becoming the biggest channel on the platform with over 99 million subscribers.

The massive number of followers makes him lucrative to advertisers, and PewDiePie has been listed in the top 10 highest-paid YouTubers of 2018, as per Forbes.

Bisognin is an Italian internet personality who used to be active on her lifestyle YouTube channel and has since moved into fashion design and entrepreneurship.

With fame comes controversy, and Kjellberg has faced backlash for videos with Nazi references or anti-Semitic imagery, leading to Disney cutting ties with him in 2017.

He also apologized after using the n-word during a live stream in 2017. In 2018, he apologized for sharing a meme that mocked singer Demi Lovato after a suspected drug overdose.
