Ian Hecox is one of the two protagonists of the Smosh series. He is the second half who however has been more focused in a way, having his own Youtube Channel called IanH with over 2,000,000 subscribers.
Although Ian and his best friend, Anthony Padilla, both act as idiots sometimes, Ian is often seen by fans as the dumb one of the pair.
Description Ian has blue eyes, light brown hair, and he is pale. He also has a beard that is darker brown. His birthday is November 30, 1987. His mom, worrying that he will harm himself, has surgically implanted a safety helmet that doubles as his hair when he was 7. He has a fetish for his beard.
Also, when he is hungry, he pronounces "Animal" as "Mammal" as seen in the Lunch Time with Smosh Episode "OUR WEIRDEST FAN EXPERIENCE"
Ian is often portrayed as dumb, ignorant and childish. He constantly demonstrates a lack of knowledge of the world. He is seen as less mature than Anthony, often going into temper tantrums or crying fits. However, there have been rare times when he has been more mature than Anthony. Though he is usually shown as intellectually inferior to Anthony, there have been instances where he has been smarter than Anthony, such as in "Anthony is Mexican" where Ian spoke fluent Spanish while Anthony couldn't and had to rely on a dictionary (even then it made no sense). Despite all of this, polls have shown that Ian is more popular amongst Smosh fans than any other character. Ian has displayed a fair amount of common sense when Anthony lacks in. Ian portrays most of the duplicating cast in the Smosh Productions rather than Anthony as he has appeared as around 50 different duplicate persona's for example Dr. Drew Peacock and George Zazz. When hungry, if he tries to say "animal" he will say "mammal" instead, according to a Lunchtime with Smosh episode. Ian has ADHD and asthma. He also thinks that Jeeps are trucks for some unknown reason
Ian has a girlfriend named Melanie Moat, and she was only seen in one smosh video (boxman loses the election) and in two ianh videos (Ian Is Bored 2) and (Ian Is Bored 5).
Ian is best friends with Anthony. In his smosh skits, he has a dog named Sparky, an unnamed cat that went crazy in the video "Cat Soup", and a sister who was killed accidently by Anthony. His favorite food (according to the "Food Battles") is the pink-frosted sprinkled donuts. Ian also was on the cross country team in high school. Although he is often best friends with Anthony, they are both mortal enemies in the Food Battle series. It is because Anthony thinks Ian's pink-frosted sprinkled donuts are terrible, and says that his tukidos, celery, churros, burritos, and red hot chili peppers are much better than Ian's pink frosted sprinkled donuts. In "Our Weirdest Fan Experience" on the channel "IanH",Ian says that whenever he's hungry he calls all animals mammals. Ian first met Anthony in 6th grade science class. He has a dog named Sparky, an unamed cat that went berserk, a lizard with Lizard Rabies, and a sister who was accidentally run over by Anthony in Ian's Birthday. In an episode of Lunchtime with Smosh, he mentions that he has an older sister, though it is unknown if this sister was the one killed in Ian's Birthday or if she is a separate person. In an episode of Ian is Bored and Smosh, he claims he had a long lost brother named Adrian Hendrix, who died in a motorcycle accident, but this has yet to be proven real. In The Future Sucks!, it is shown that Ian will die when he is about 50. He will try to go back with The Teleporting Fat Guy, Past Anthony and Past Ian due to a law that bans farting, but will result with them being sent to the Cretaceous period. They will have almost been attacked by a T-Rex, and Past Ian will push Future Ian towards the T-Rex to distract it, thus resulting in Future Ian being eaten by the T-Rex. His family is more well known and more often seen than Anthony's family. His mom is a recurring character in the videos, either as a caring mother to Ian or an evil antagonist (Extreme Sleepover, Real Death Note, the alternate ending to Breaking the Habit). Ian's sister was killed off in Ian's Birthday, but Ian was happy about this, meaning he hated his sister and decided to eat his birthday cake after seeing it.
