Anthony "Danger" Padilla
16 September 1987 (age 28)
Anthony "Danger" Padilla (pronounced Pa-Dee-Ya) is one half of the comedy duo Smosh. He is an American Internet comedian and is one of the two protagonists of the Smosh franchise. He is Ian's best friend and the founder of Smosh Productions. He lives in Los Angeles, CA with his cat, Pip.
Anthony was born in Sacramento, CA. He has two brothers, of which we know one is named Matthew, as mentioned in "Anthony's Long Lost Animation." When Anthony was 2 years old, his parents broke up and his mother has agoraphobia.
From 10th October 2010 to November 2014, Anthony was in a relationship with (and engaged to starting 29th June 2013) Kalel Cullen. They announced their split on Thursday 4th December 2014, the decision was mutual and the two still remain good friends even though none of them have appeared in any videos together on either of their channels. He is now dating Miel Bredouw (@mielmonster). They started dating in May 2015.
When he was a freshman, Anthony got his driver's license, but he got a car and drove earlier as he used to drop Ian home after school, as mentioned in an episode of Lunchtime with Smosh, as well as in "Draw My Life" video that he did on his personal channel.
He has brown-colored eyes, slightly tan skin, and short dark brown hair with bangs which are often mistaken or made fun of as "emo hair" or an "emo flap". However, in "My New Emo Hair," people actually like his haircut.
Anthony is 5' 11" tall and weighs 158 lbs, according to a tweet from him on June 23, 2013.
In 2015, it was rumored that Anthony had died in a car accident. The rumor spread rapidly and scared many people. The rumor, although to a lesser scale, largely persists to this day.
Anthony is often shown as smarter, obedient, and more mature than Ian (though their personalities are hardly different) as he often knows much more about the world than Ian does, which is shown throughout Smosh: The Movie. However, he is sometimes childish because he believes that Toy Story is real (which makes Anthony a bit dim-witted and delusional). It is often hard to explain the personality of both Ian and Anthony as they often role-play and vary their attitude.
He is often cheeky as he usually teases Ian around with the Barbershop Pole and he points out small mistakes made by Ian in Lunchtimes, like in "President Evil," he directly corrects Ian when he mistakes a sunrise for a sunset.
Anthony's favorite foods are taquitos, celery, churros, burritos, red hot chili peppers, rainbow lollipops, egg rolls, giant gummy snakes, rock candy, and chocolate-covered banana. He likes Disney and the company's films, especially Toy Story.
Anthony is a 1/4 Filipino since his paternal grandmother is from the Philippines, as stated in the episodes "SEXIST BURGER!" (Lunchtime w/ Smosh) ,"ADDICTED TO BREAD!" (Lunchtime w/ Smosh) and "Girlfriend Tag!" ('WatchUsLiveAndStuff', the vlogging channel of Kalel and Anthony). According to "Food Battle 2009," he knows what Donald Trump's old skin and cement tastes like. Anthony is killed many times in the videos and holds the record for most times died (while playing as himself). Anthony has had many girlfriends in the past, but all of them eventually broke up with him. He is known to practice yoga alongside with this unknown "Hot Girl," mentioned in the episode "My Mom's AMAZING Video!". Anthony literally has a crush on Lou Ferrigno, and even wrote a song for him. In "The Future Sucks!", we learn that Anthony will become homeless due to his Celebrehair business (where he follows celebrities to their hair salons, digs through the trash and sells their hair online) failing because of a trend where everyone in Hollywood had their hair permanently removed.
He loves his hair and he sang an entire song about it when he thought he would never have hair again. Anthony is known to have a rather strange attraction to Ian's mother, as seen in "Paranormal Easy Bake Oven," Food Battles, and several IanH videos.
In an interview with NewMedia Rockstars, Anthony had said that he would obviously choose Squirtle as his starter and then Catch a Rattata further to fight the first Gym Leader.
Anthony's favorite guilty pleasure is comic books and graphic novels which was said in the same interview. Anthony mentions that it was extremely embarrassing for him to do the Sexy Anthony photo shoot as he had to dress as a naked Cowboy. Right when they got there, there was this huge group of kids on bicycles and parents who drove by right when he dropped his pants. He was wearing a flesh-colored speedo.
Anthony said that he had no further educational plans and had no idea on what to do with his life until he started to earn money over YouTube. Before earning money there, Anthony would design websites for his friends and earn enough to pay for gas and car insurance.
There is also a mention that he has worse ADHD than Ian in the fake Lunchtime with Smosh "SMOSH FOUND DEAD" extras.
Since late 2013, Anthony has been eating vegan food products. This originally started just as support for Kalel (who also abstains from animal products), but he switched fully in 2014 for health reasons.
Along with Ian, the two made their official acting debut in Smosh: The Movie.
Anthony has to wear a mouth guard when he goes to sleep because otherwise, he would grind his teeth together. Ian was the first person to notice it because they went on a trip to Hawaii right after they graduated and they were sharing a room with two beds. Ian kept hearing a creaking sound. Anthony has had other dental issues, as when they were preparing for a Food Battle, Anthony chipped his tooth when he was to perform a type of ground stunt. He also chipped a tooth on a plastic figure of Jesus in an episode of Smosh Is Bored; "What's in My Mouth" challenge.
In high school, Anthony was a tennis player, but he left the sport after his partner slammed the racket with no intention up his chin, which made one of his teeth fall out. (see I'M A PIRATE (True Story 3) for more).
AnxietyAnthony suffers from panic attacks, stating in is Draw My Life that his mother had them and believes they are something that is passed down through family. Anthony stated in 2014 that they were more-or-less cured when he started eating more healthily.
