Career

Before YouTube

Before getting into the entertainment industry and making YouTube videos, both Keith and Kevin Hodge worked in several different industries. They've been enlisted in the Marine Corps, they worked as undercover security guards pretending to be customers to catch potential shoplifters, [21] and they worked at an insurance company. [25] However, they never seemed to enjoy what they were doing. [23]

While they were working at the insurance company, they started making YouTube videos on the side.

One day, while they were at work, Keith Hodge had the idea of quitting their jobs and making YouTube videos full-time. [23]

YouTube

On December 25, 2008, Kevin and Keith Hodge uploaded their first video on their first YouTube channel, TheHodgetwins. It was a comedy sketch that involved an argument inside a restroom. [11] The channel eventually turned into a comedy channel where they would give their views on current events. [22]

Once the channel gained traction, the twins eventually branched out to discussing different subjects. They started giving relationship advice, which was first suggested by one of their subscribers. [10] [25]

They coined the interpretative phrase "sugar walls" as slang for a woman's vagina [44] and "mushroom tip" to refer to a man's penis. [45]

After gaining traction on their first channel, Keith and Kevin focused on their personal fitness and started uploading videos on what is their most popular channel, Twin Muscle Workout. It has 2 million subscribers as of December 2018). [11]

After posting their first video, they received a lot of harsh criticism in the comments section. This led to the Hodge Twins ending every video with the disclaimer:"Do whatever the fuck you want." This turned out to be one of the Hodge Twins' most famous and emphatic catchphrases. [22]

Stand-Up Comedy

Over the last few years, the Hodge Twins have aimed to legitimize ourselves as stand-up comedians and actors. They now do comedy tours all over the world.

Diet

With regards to nutrition, the Hodges eat somewhere between 120 and 140 grams of protein per day. Kevin says that, if they were to eat a gram of protein per pound of their bodyweight, they would eat around 210 grams of protein. As a result, he believes that is ‘way too much’ for his colon and kidneys to process. [7]

When the Hodge Twins want to lose weight, they follow these six rules: [7]

  1. Eat lean meats (i.e. chicken) and eggs for your sources of protein.
  2. Consume vegetables, potatoes, rice, and legumes for your carbohydrates.
  3. Always aim to eat home-cooked meals; if that’s not possible, then choose a healthy option from a restaurant menu.
  4. If you want to lose weight, eat between 1800-2000 calories per day; note that this range is for the Hodge Twins and does not apply to everyone.
  5. Restrict your carb intake to 50 grams or less 2 or 3 days out of the week.
  6. Eat around 6 small meals per day.
