The Try Guys – comprising Americans Keith Habersberger, Ned Fulmer, Zach Kornfeld and Eugene Lee Yang – started in 2014 as a group when they were working withBuzzfeed. Then, they appeared regularly in the media company’s video series that aims to show them trying different things like ladies’ underwear, high heels, ballet, cosplay and even prostate examinations.
The series became one of Buzzfeed’s most popular, propelling the four men to Internet celebrity status.
One of their most popular videos during their time with Buzzfeed was The Try Guys Try Labor Pain Simulation, which has over 33 million views on Youtube and more than 140 million views on Facebook.
In 2018, the foursome left the company to form their own production company, which has a strategic partnership with Buzzfeed.
They produce, direct, shoot and appear in every episode of their series – which also occasionally feature appearances from their friends and families. Fulmer’s wife – the couple have a son – and Habersberger’s wife appear in a spinoff series on their channel as The Try Wives.
Kornfeld has revealed that he had a girlfriend in a video in 2018, while Yang recently came out as a gay man in a music video.
