iDubbbzTV, (also known in South and Central America as ErwinGabrielTV) real name Ian Carter, was born July 27th 1991 [age 26] in San Antonio, Texas. iDubbbz is a YouTuber who is widely known for his Kickstarter Crap videos, his Content Cop videos—specifically his ones directed at Jinx, Keemstar, LeafyIsHere, and Tana Mongeau—and his videos with the YouTubers Filthy Frank and Maxmoefoe. iDubbbz created his channel August 12, 2012. His first video, uploaded August 30th, 2012, is of him playing the Holiday levels of the game Overgrowth. iDubbbz continued to upload gaming videos on his channel, until March 18, 2013, when he released his first “Gaming New s Crap” video, which was the origin of his Kickstarter crap series. Although iDubbbz kept making gaming videos, his more popular series, Kickstarter Crap, and Bad Unboxing took a higher priority over these videos, as they slowly got uploaded at a higher rate.
iDubbbz has relatively short brown hair and wears black horn-rimmed glasses. He is 6'2".
Arguably iDubbbz's most successful series, the Content Cop videos are satire aimed at content creators who are acting in a controversial or disrespectful manner. This series brought in over 50 million views combined and includes videos about large channels such as DramaAlert, LeafyIsHere, and the Fine Brothers.
Content Cop episodes begin with a sketch of iDubbbz wearing a cop costume as he pursues a suspect to the soundtrack of Otis McMusic , eventually breaking down into a scuffle between the two, before we cut to iDubbbz sitting down in his studio to begin talking about the channel or channels in question, with no mention being made of the opening fight - even if the sketch ends with the Content Cop apparently being killed or, in one case, the suspect stealing his uniform and running away.
While there are a lot of requests in the comments section for Content Cop videos for him to feature certain YouTubers, iDubbbz generally ignores these requests.
On 10 December 2016, Tana Mongeau, a fellow YouTuber tweeted at iDubbbz saying he should kill himself because he uses "the n word" and "retard". Tana later deleted the tweet because one of her fans committed suicide. On 21 January 2017 iDubbbz, along with his girlfriend Anisa, went to Tana Mongeau's fan meetup. Anisa was also recording on a camera, which was later used for the Content Cop on Tana Mongeau. iDubbbz decided to take a photo with Tana, but instead of saying "Say cheese!" he said "Say nigger!", after that iDubbbz was kicked out. Tana made a video about the situation, titled "The N Word". She says nothing about iDubbbz in the video, just explains what happened with the meet and greet and how it's a racist word. She was really dramatic, crying and said that a fan came up to her and wrapped his arm around her neck and said "Say nigger!" out loud. When in reality, iDubbbz put his arm around her own arm, and said "Say nigger!" under his breath. To add to the total hypocrisy of this so-called "controversy", Tana has also been recorded calling strangers the N-word herself as well as using the N-word in a number of posts on her Twitter and Instagram accounts.
On February 6, 2017, iDubbbz released a video titled “Content Cop – Tana Mongeau”, a part of his Content Cop series. In it, he defends his use of the word “nigger” and accuses Mongeau of hypocrisy by showing past clips of her uttering the word. He stated that his use of the word is not meant to offend as it is done in a comedic context, whilst he deemed Mongeau’s use of the word to be racist. In the video, Ian also shows footage from the incident at Mongeau's show and criticizes her response to it. He also discusses the use of derogatory terms in a broader context, and the weight which society places on specific words in terms of their offensiveness.

- There has been an on going dispute about Ian's last name, with some saying his last name is Kovic and others saying it is Carter.

Some believe Ian uses Carter as an alias for privacy reasons.
