That's all for today and see ya.
— Simon's outro.

Simon Edward Minter (born September 7, 1992 (1992-09-07) [age 28]), also known as Miniminter, is a YouTube personality and member of the Sidemen.

Background

Simon was born in Hemel Hempstead, a town in Hertfordshire, England. He has two older brothers called Nick and Johnny. Simon attended Berkhamsted School, a private school in his local area which educates students from the age of 3 to 18. It was here that he met KSI when they were both in secondary school. The two hated each other initially and came into contact at the age of 12/13 when they had a physical fight in a class. The teachers stepped in and attempted to force them into an unlikely friendship. This ultimately worked and they have been best friends since then.

Simon achieved one A*, two A's and nine B's in his GCSE's in 2009. However, he failed to get good A-Level results in 2011 so didn't manage to get into his preferred university. He ended up taking a gap year in the 2011–2012 academic year and even traveled to Ghana for two months when he was 19 to teach football to the locals. In the summer of 2012, Simon went traveling around the East Coast of America and stayed in six states. Upon returning to the UK the next month, Simon began studying criminology at the University of Hull

Simon met TBJZL when he was helping JJ film a video in London in November 2012. Tobi was long-term friends with Zerkaa and the four of them went out for a meal together at Nando's and got on very well. From JJ, Simon was inspired to create a channel of his own. He dropped out of university just three months into the term (after not enjoying the mass amount of theory on his course) and was then working on JJ's clothing line, Beast.

Simon is a long-time fan of Leeds United F.C as his mother's side of the family is from there. He has also stated that he supports Watford F.C and Manchester United F.C (because of his brothers).

Career

Simon posted his first FIFA video in December 2012 just before quitting university. Simon has stated that the "mini" part of "Miniminter" was in reference to his height when he was younger. It is also believed to be a reference to him being the youngest of the 3 children in his family. He often makes a joke claiming the "mini" part was in reference to his penis, something which has not necessarily been proven to be untrue.

In April 2013, Simon did his first collaboration video with Deji. Around a year later, he moved into the (original) Sidemen House with three other members of the Sidemen. At this point, he had only known Vik for a couple of months. Simon posted his first group video in March 2014: a crossbar challenge with various other YouTubers. After this, Simon's subscribers blew up to around 150,000.

He lived in two houses in South East London (alongside Vik, JJ and Josh) from February 2014 to January 2019. He currently lives with JJ in a flat in London.

About

On Simon's main channel, he makes FIFA and real life football videos as well as vlogs, Question and Answer sessions, Sidemen vine reactions and P.O. Box package openings. On his second channel, he predominantly posts Grand Theft Auto V and Cards Against Humanity videos, as well as numerous other "random" games with the Sidemen. A large proportion of his real-life videos are collaborative challenges with other members of the Sidemen, such as patience tests, quizzes, football challenges and more.

Simon captained Sidemen F.C. in the charity football match against the YouTube Allstars on 3 June 2016 in Southampton. He was positioned as a striker and he scored three goals and got a hat trick with it - one of which was from the halfway line which was so out-of-nowhere that the cameras failed to pick it up live. This was considered "the goal of the game" and was one of the most talked about events of the match on Twitter that night. Since then he has kept the ball used in the match as a memento. He also captained the second match on 21 May 2017.

Simon has been accused of having a one-night-stand with AshleyMarieeGaming whilst the Sidemen were away in 2015. This is often brought up in Cards Against Humanity matches. Simon denies the accusations, although there is enough evidence to suggest they are truthful.

In 2016, after months of speculation, Simon revealed his car to his viewers. It was a red Range Rover Evoque which he still owns. He bought a Tesla Model X in November 2017 which he had to sell due to it not really working for him in the city.

In 2017, Simon began hiring a cameraman called Jordz (who helps him film his vlogs). Jordan is a close friend and also a small YouTuber. Since late-2017, he has been in a relationship with Talia Mar, an English YouTuber and singer.
