Welcome back to CelebMix’s YouTuber of the Week, where we put the spotlight on some of the best creators on the internet.

Last week’s champ was the hilarious Garrett Watts. However, this week we’re giving you two for the price of one as we hand over the crown to the wonderful Niki and Sammy.

It’s impossible not to fall in love with their humour and we can’t wait to see how they continue to grow their channel in the future.

Five of Niki and Sammy’s must-watch videos

1. Recreating Our First Video

After a fan asked them if they would unprivate one of their first ever videos, Niki and Sammy decided to recreate it. The Twin/Sibling Tag video is hilarious and it’s clear to see how they’ve developed as YouTubers since their awkward first attempt together!

2. Who is our BTS bias?

It’s no secret that Niki and Sammy are huge BTS stans and for this video they discuss who their particular biases are. Whilst they have their own faves, they decided to take a Buzzfeed quiz to see who their BTS soulmate is.

3. If you grew up in the 90s and 00s…

The twins take a trip down memory lane to the 90s and 00s in this video. From Sunny Delight to Furbies, Pokemon cards to overhead projectors, this video will make you feel super nostalgic.
