The Stokes Twins, HOT vs COLD POOL Challenge!

The brothers are of Caucasian and Chinese descent.[1] They were born in China on November 23, 1996 and raised there before moving to Tennessee, USA. They currently live in California.

In February 2019, Alex Stokes had emergency surgery after his appendix burst.[5]

The twins were part of a collaborative YouTube channel known as Sunset Park in 2017 from where they met Andrew Davila. They stayed there for almost a year before deciding to take a break from YouTube. In 2020, social media personality Brent Rivera called the twins and asked them to be a part of his YouTube group known as Amp World whose members include Andrew Davila, Alexa (Lexi) Rivera, Ben Azelart, Dom Brack, Jeremy Hutchins, Lexi Hensler, and Pierson [Wodzynski], and The One and Only Onè Official.[6]

The twins also have an official second YouTube channel “Stokes Twins Too”.[7]

They currently have an online merchandise shop called “Double Trouble”.[8]

Both are not officially in a relationship as of October 2021.

Criminal charges

In August 2020, the Stokes Twins were charged with false imprisonment affected by violence, menace, fraud or deceit and falsely reporting an emergency in connection, or swatting with a YouTube video that they had recorded in October 2019.[9] The video contained two separate fake bank robberies as pranks, where the brothers pretended to be robbers; dressed all in black, wearing ski masks and carrying duffle bags,[10] and are attempting to make a getaway by asking unsuspecting people for clothing items or transportation help.[11]

At one instance they called an Uber driver, who was not aware of the prank, and after the driver refused to drive them they attempted to coerce him. Numerous bystanders called the police in both prank attempts and footage of the pair being stopped by officers were added to the video.[11] The Uber driver was held at gunpoint by responding officers until it was determined the driver was not involved, and the brothers were warned but not arrested and continued to film the video with a second prank four hours later at the University of California, Irvine.[10]

The twins’ attorneys have raised claims that the twins are not guilty of the charges as responding officers from the first prank reportedly gave suggestions for the video being filmed, and one brother reportedly called the Irvine Police Department’s non-emergency line twice to tell them about the prank prior to the video being filmed. Their attorneys also raised concerns about the length of time between the video and the charges; ten months, and that the twins were not notified about the charges until after the department issued a press release about them.[2]

On April 1, 2021, the twins pleaded guilty in a plea bargain and were sentenced to 160 hours of community service and a year’s probation.[12][13]
