Date of Birth:
November 2, 1984 (age 31)
Mariko Takahashi (夫), (born November 2, 1984) most commonly known as Mari, was the host of Smosh Pit Weekly, rarely appearing in videos uploaded on the main Smosh channel but is the third most associated member of Smosh, behind Ian and Anthony. She is also a major member of Smosh Games, appearing often in other series on the channel as well as on her own show, Super Mari Fun Time, now called MariCraft.
She will also compete on the 33rd season of Survivor.
Later on in Meme Schoolgirl! Mari puts her meme knowledge, or lack thereof, to the test as Ian shows her a mixture of famous memes and random images. She initially believes meme to be "a name for your favorite stuffed animal" and only gets one question correct.
"MEME SCHOOLGIRL!" also revealed Mari as the winner of the audition for Smosh's next video series, which would turn out to be Smosh Pit Weekly. She hosted the first episode,We Have "Crabs", and has hosted the series ever since. However, Smosh Pit Weekly has received very mixed reception, ranging from positive and constructive critisicm, to irrelevant compliments and negative responses. As a result, Smosh Pit Weekly episodes have gained the most dislikes on YouTube out of all Smosh videos. However, as of August 2011, the recent Smosh Pit Weekly episodes have 90% likes compared to her first episodes. While the factor of viewers not even watching Smosh Pit Weekly at all comes to mind when it comes to the increase in likes, Smosh Pit Weekly episodes have reportedly positively improved over time to the point where the like percentage of her most recent video is the same as the Ian is Bored episode "Novocaine SUCKS!".
In 2015, however, Smosh Pit Weekly was discontinued, but Mari still occasionally appears on the Smosh 2nd Channel and on Smosh Games.
Mari makes her first apperance in a main Smosh video in Pokemon Theme Song REVENGE. She was the assistant that came running in to the office to tell the CEO that Smosh had made another Pokemon video.
She was also in the video I'M NOT RACIST!!! as one of Ian's two new Japanese friends who had just come from an Elvis convention. She said, "F***ing racist" in Japanese to Anthony.AWESOME NEW ROBOT!, Mari appears as the girl in pigtails in the robot commercial, playing with Ian's character Billy Hamburger..
Mari appears on Smosh Games. She only does Super Mari Fun Time (which was changed to Maricraft) and Smosh Game Bang, although she has made occasional appearances in other shows such as Backseat Gaming, Gamer Nation, and Grand Theft Smosh.
She appears also in Holy Crap! 2 Billion Views! with all the cast of "Smosh Games". She's in the bathroom playing a Pokemon Tournament with a Gameboy Advance SP.
She has an appearance in Dixon Cider as one of the background dancers, though she wears less revealing clothes than the other dancers and even performs as a ballerina for a few seconds.
She is not a good player of Deadliest Warrior, losing six times in "We Are Not the Deadliest Warriors". She taunted her opponents in Japanese, and Anthony replied "I don't speak Spanish". Her gaming strengths are in dancing games, such as Just Dance.
Outside of Smosh activities, Mari's main profession is a ballet dancer, as explained in one of her Smosh Pit Weekly episodes. This explains her flexibility in her audition. She sometimes goes on tour with her group, as seen in two Smosh Pit Weekly episodes where she filmed in her hotel room. According to her own YouTube channel, Mari has uploaded exerpts of four of her performances. Her videos include her performances for Giselle, No Place to Rest, Musume, and the Nutcracker Suite.
Mari also enjoys rock climbing. According to some pictures, she has been known to climb some slopes without a harness.
Mari also loves traveling, as seen in some of her pictures. According to a Smosh Pit Weekly episode, she always takes her traveling buddy, a monkey doll she calls Silvio, along. She also takes home souveniers that are made of dead animals, a monkey skull being an example.
She is also on another YouTube series completely separate from the Smosh canon, Ask a Naked Guy. Coincidentally, Ian and Anthony starred in an episode of the series once.
Mari also collaborated with Hidden Fortess for a video, Mari's Shadow.
Mari has a boyfriend named Peter Kitch, they have been in a relationship since 2010.
Mari will be competing on the 33rd season of Survivor, entitled Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X.
