Roman found his passion in producing and filming videos from when he was in high school. One of his first creations was a series of DVDs called “The Nerd Herd”, which were sold during an event called the 2006 Warped Tour. He worked in the family rope factory business called “Atwood Rope” prior to starting YouTube, but then he also produced commercials and films working in Columbus, Ohio. By 2010, Atwood had decided to focus his efforts on his YouTube channel, citing his passion for comedy.

Atwood has instituted numerous pranks on his channel, but a few have the highest number of views and are the most notable. He made the video the “Plastic Ball Prank” in which he filled his house with plastic balls while his girlfriend was out – the video has over 50 million views, and was noticed by Nissan who rewarded Roman with a car. The commercial featuring his video was shown during Super Bowl XLIX as part of the WithDad campaign. Another famous video he has is called “Anniversary Prank Backfires!!”, and was supposed to be how he would fool his girlfriend on their 5th anniversary by telling her that he cheated on her. The prank backfires when his girlfriend would tell him that she cheated too. It was then later revealed that his girlfriend found out that he set up the camera and fooled him; she also thought that Roman was going to propose; this video had over 70 million views. Another frequently viewed video at over 35 million is the “Killing My Own Kid Prank” which shows how he used a kid mannequin dressed in a Spider-Man costume. He threw the mannequin from the balcony of their 2-storey house and pretended that it was his youngest son.

For the crazy plastic ball prank that Nissan had used for an ad campaign, Roman was rewarded with a Streamy Award for Best Brand Campaign. He was also nominated twice for Best Pranks in the 4th and 5th Streamy Awards.

He is also currently working on a few more comedy films and reality prank videos.

Outside of YouTube, Roman owns an online store and his own clothing line called “Smile More”, the sales from which boost his net worth too.

In his personal life, Roman was married to Shanna Riley (2001-08) – he divorced her after she had an affair with his ‘friend’. He has been living with his partner Brittany since 2010, and they have a son and a daughter. She makes a few appearances on his channel, and so do their children.
