Joshua Evan Ovenshire, also known as Jovenshire,  or simply Joven, is one of the six hosts on Smosh Games. He was a former host on Clevver Games and Mahalo Games alongside Lasercorn and Sohinki, the three all being hosts on Smosh Games now. As of 17 January 2013, he has his own Youtube channel called TheJovenshire, on which he hosts video blogs every Wednesday. From 21 October 2013 to early 2014 Joshua sported a Mohawk hairstyle, which was referred to by the others as a "Jovenhawk" (This hairstyle came about as a result of Joshua losing a bet to Lasercorn and Sohinki about the release date of PS4).

King of the Nerds Edit

  • From January 17 to February 14 2013, Jovenshire was on the first season of a reality competition TV show on TBS called "King of the Nerds." Joven came in seventh place, losing to Ivan Van Norman.
    • It is implied that Joven is still a bit bitter over this, or at least on camera. He has been quoted in multiple Gang Bangs and other videos that "the show was rigged"
    • The other Smosh Games members seem to make fun of Joven for losing in multiple instances. In one GTS video, Joven got excited about doing a reality TV show, which was responded with "because you do so well on reality TV." Sohinki and Joven were also discussing King of the Nerds in Lasercorn's channel video.


  • Jovenshire has the record for most overall losses in Game Bang, having a total of 60 losses
  • On the Smosh Game Bang episodes Cover Your Ears, We're Singing and Rock Band Rocks!, Joshua is proven to be a terrible singer. However, he has stated in his channel that if he practices he has a "decent" singing voice. Joshua also has a 'talent' singing Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe, as demonstrated in many Smosh Games videos.
  • On his channel, he said he got the gears tattoo over his heart because he was pronounced dead but the doctors saved him, and has had many near death experiences.
  • On the Smosh Game Bang episode EPIC SMOSH RAP BATTLE he has proven to be a bad rapper.
  • From July 2013 to late May/early June 2014, he was in a relationship with Erin Darling from YouTube channel THEPOPFIX. The reason for their breakup is unknown.
  • On the Super Mari Fun Time episode "THE RETURN OF BROKEBACK JOVEN" he said that he loves country music
  • In the video that announced SmoshGames on Clevver Games channel, it was revealed that it was Joshua's fault for the double "v" in the "Clevver Games" name.
  • During punishments in Smosh Game Bang that involve eating, Joshua always has the worst gagging reaction (and he's the only one who always has a bucket prepared.)
  • In the various Dancing Game Bangs uploaded to the channel, Joshua is shown to be reasonably skilled dancer. Out of the ten Game Bangs that have had the players doing dancing games, Joshua has ended up doing the punishment three times (in You Can't Stop the Motion and Dancing With The Star Wars), and has come last place twice (in You Can't Stop the Motion and Just Dance Like No One is Watching), tieing him with Ian for least last place losses.
  • His first win for a dancing Game Bang was Breaking It Down In 2014, making him the last player to have won such an episode.
  • Jovenshire sometimes does not do well in Kinect games that don't involve dancing.
  • Joshua has stated on his personal channel that he doesn't like it when people call him Josh. He prefers Joshua or Joven.
  • He was cast on The Walking Dead Webisodes as a walker.
  • Joshua is the 2nd tallest member of Smosh Games only behind Anthony.

  • One of his Celebrity Crushes is Emma Watson as mentioned in Smosh video Emma Watson Surprise Prank.
  • In one of his videos on his personal channel he stated that he has very bad eyesight, to the point that there are literal blind spots in his cornea (although he has also stated that they do not affect his ability to drive.)
  • Jovenshire has stated in the past that he is a fan of long-running British Sci-Fi Drama Doctor Who
  • He is sometimes a guest on the FineBros show Youtubers React along with Sohinki and Lasercorn.
  • It is revealed in "HOW TO SURVIVE THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE" that he lives with Wes.
  • In "Lunchtime with Smosh Games" it is revealed that he is a collector of swords and owns a police baton that he calls a Joven baton which he keeps in his car but in "How To Survive The Zombie Apocalypse" Sohinki says that Jovenshire claims he used to practice martial arts which is why he collects these items (but Sohinki doesn't believe him) but this revealed to be true in Teenage Mutant Ninja Smosh as Jovenshire was the most skilled at using the weapons and had taught Mari,Ian and Anthony on how to use the weapons during the video. 
  • He was a contestant on the first season of King of the Nerds and came in 7th place.
  • His friendship with Mari had gotten better to a point where he is protective of her in GTA 5 and Minecraft in videos, Mari calls him Jovie and lets him sit next to her when he is not playing GTA 5 and Minecraft.

  • It has been implied multiple times that he is intimidated by Lasercorn. A notable example would be in breakfast with Smosh Games when he refused Sohinkis dare to eat a piece of Lasercorn's food out of fear of Lasercorn attacking him.
  • Joven has a reputation of being the worst player on Smosh Games, having lost over half of the current number of Game Bangs. He also commonly blames his bad eyesight and bad game mechanics when he is losing. He has shown, however, to be more skilled in Minecraft, dancing, trivia and fighting games.

  • In Crazy Electric Shock Game its revealed that jovenshire takes enjoyment from being electrocuted.
  • In Grand Theft Smosh, Maricraft and in the Mario Kart 8 Grand Prix, Jovenshire often teams up with Lasercorn in attacking the other players and praise each other's destruction even sometimes they both cause episodes to turn dark as evidenced in Top 5 Darkest Smosh Games Moments and Trolling In The Wild West. However at times Jovenshire becomes Lasercorn's main target along with the other players even at times becomes a central target for example in How To Survive The Zombie Apocalypse Lasercorn says that he will sacrifice Jovenshire to escape from zombies.
