10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Ethan Dolan

He's actually pretty different to Grayson

When you think of the Dolan twins, you think of both Ethan and Grayson together, right? While the two are pretty much inseparable, and have been since they began their YouTube channel back in 2014, the two are actually pretty different. It’s hard to speak of one without the other, but since Ethan is the ever so slightly older twin (that fun fact was free!) we’ll start off with listing 10 facts about him that you very possibly didn’t know. Let’s go. 

He’s a competitive wrestler 

Ethan has been doing competitive wrestling for years and in 2013 when he was just in 8th grade (that’s 2nd year in Irish school terms) Ethan and his twin got to compete at Madison Square Garden! Fairly Impressive, eh?

He’s won multiple awards 

That’s right Ethan has actually won five Teen choice awards for his Youtube Channel, and adults say that social media isn’t a real job, pfft. 

He’s a Sagittarius  

His birthday is on December 16, 1999, making him a Sagittarius! The most common Sagittarius traits are optimistic, hilarious, and honest – which sounds about right in Ethan’s case.

In February of 2020, Ethan spoke out about his struggle with acne and how it affected his self-esteem. Something which helped his young following a lot, as many teens also suffer from skin problems.
