Rose Dix joined YouTube for a university class, establishing the Rose Ellen Dix channel.[4] She uploaded her first video, entitled "Rose Dix talks Lisa Scinta," on 30 September 2010. An early assignment during her film degree included attempting to make a video go viral. Dix posted a parody of Kesha's Tik Tok on 26 January 2011, and the video received an estimated 16,000 views in five days.[5][6]

Rosie Spaughton uploaded her first video, entitled "YDAHD," to her channel TheRoxetera, on 19 December 2011. She first appears on the Rose Ellen Dix channel in "Baffle Laffle Taffle Breakup" posted on 18 December 2011. Their first posted collaboration video was uploaded on 15 January 2012 to the Rose Ellen Dix channel.

In 2014, Rose quit her job at an Apple Store in Worcester to focus on YouTube full-time.[7] On 29 April 2016, Rose and Rosie expanded their presence on YouTube by creating a new channel called "Let's Play Games", on which they post gaming videos, which were already present on their main channel, Rose Ellen Dix. However, they decided to make a place for more on this channel.

In August 2016, they both made the AfterEllen Hot 100 list with Rosie at number 23 and Rose at 18. They also hit 100 million views on their main channel that month.

Channels and content

The Rose and Rosie channel contains content in the style of “couch comedy” as well as challenges, tags, guides, gaming videos, and collaborations with other YouTubers, such as Hannah Witton, Hannah Hart,[8] Shannon Beveridge, Cammie Scott, Amy Ordman, and Oli White. The couple has also collaborated with Grace Helbig.[8]

The Rose and Rosie Vlogs channel contains vlogs and various series, such as annual VLOGMAS videos, #RealTalk, and the BISEXY SERIES. In #RealTalk, Rose and Rosie attempt to discuss real-life conflicts/situations and use their personal experiences to share advice with viewers. Some of the pair’s #RealTalk videos include videos titled “How to Have a Good Relationship”, “Living with OCD” and “Controlling Your Jealousy”. In the BISEXY SERIES, Rosie talks about her experiences as a bisexual woman. Some of the videos in this series include “How Do You Know You’re Bisexual” and “Dealing With Biphobia & Homophobia”.

Rose and Rosie participate in Vlogmas every year, posting daily vlogs of the festivities leading up to their Christmas celebration.

Let’s Play Games is Rose and Rosie’s third channel devoted to playing video games, including “Until Dawn”, “GTA 5”, “FIFA” and “The Sims 4”.

Maltese is an alter-ego created by Rose who appears in a number of videos such as “THIS IS JUST RIDICULOUS”, “SUPERKISS PART 3” and “Acting 101 with Maltese Van de Kamp”. Maltese is a snobbish character with an accent, claiming to be “Canadian/Rhode Island royalty”.

Radio and television

Spaughton worked for Sunshine Radio (FM) before pursuing YouTube full time.

In November 2014, the couple hosted the Holiday Window Unveiling in Macy's, Pittsburgh.[9] They have since appeared on BBC Radio 1's series The Internet Takeover,[10] including a Christmas special in 2016 with Ben Cook, Jim Chapman, and hosts Dan and Phil. They have also presented for MTV.

In May 2016, Rose and Rosie featured in episode 2 of Russel Kane's Stupid Man, Smart Phone on BBC Three. The episode saw them try to survive in Arctic Norway and was filmed in November 2015.

In June 2016, Dix and Spaughton were selected by Sony Pictures as two of 15 influencers in social media to promote Sony's then upcoming movies Inferno and Ghostbusters during a public relations blitz in Singapore.[11] The pair participated in a scavenger hunt, and met Tom Hanks and Ron Howard as well as interviewed Melissa McCarthy and Paul Feig. Vlogs of their scavenger hunt and interviews were later posted on Rose Ellen Dix.[12][13]

The couple are very vocal when it comes to expressing their love for former Fifth Harmony group-member Camila Cabello. Camila is the pair’s ultimate celebrity crush, who they often fan-girl over in their videos. In October 2017, Rose and Rosie had the opportunity to interview Camila Cabello at the BBC Radio 1’s Teen Awards.

Meet ups and tours

Dix and Spaughton refer to their fans as "Boobies."[14] They first held an organized meet and greet in London in 2013. In 2014, they coordinated a meet and greet with fellow YouTuber couples Whitney and Megan, and Kaelyn and Lucy. Rose and Rosie's couple nickname was The Roses, Whitney and Megan's was Wegan, and Kaelyn and Lucy's was Luclyn.[15] Thus, the meet and greet was known as "ROSWEGLYN" and had an estimated 600 attendees.[16] In April 2017, Dix and Spaughton toured the United Kingdom and Ireland, and in September 2017 continued their tour, titled "Rose & Rosie: Exposed" in North America.[17][18]

In May 2018, the couple announced that in October 2018 they will be going on tour to promote their book and documentary, both titled, "Overshare" in the UK. This tour will contain a showing of their documentary, a book signing and a Q & A. [19]

Book and Documentary

In May 2018, Dix and Spaughton announced the release of their book, "Overshare: Love, Laughs, Sexuality and Secrets." The book was published on October 4, 2018.[20] The same day, Dix and Spaughton announced they filmed a documentary, which includes members from their audience. The documentary is also titled, "Overshare". [21]
