Impact: The siblings' "Kids React" Web series regularly attracts between 500,000 and 5 million viewers a week on YouTube, depending on the topic.
Next: The duo is planning a "Teens React" series to bow in late October or early November.

They say shows like "Darndest Things" use a star host to prompt the kids to make them look funny, or just talk about how silly children are. "When you look at our 'Kids React' show, you see very specifically that we're not in it. It stars the kid," they say

Some of those kids hope to be stars themselves, like 14-year-old UTA client Lia Marie Johnson. While not all the "Kids React" panelists are aspiring actors, a few have been called in to audition specifically on account of their work on the web series.
