The Try Guys Tried to Match Their Personalities to YA Tropes!

GATHER ‘ROUND, BOOK NERDS, because we have a very special installment of Game Time!

That’s right—we had The Try Guys in to celebrate the release of their new book, The Hidden Power of F*cking Up, and could not refuse testing Keith, Ned, Zach, and Eugene on their YA knowledge. In this truly epic video, we tasked them with figuring out who among them was most similar to the tropes we all know and love. Would Eugene be the chosen one? Who is Zach in a quirky, quasi-supernatural family? And why the heck haven’t they written any fantasy adventures?!

After you watch the video, scroll down and vote for who you think would be each YA trope. It might be harder than you think—especially stacked up against your fellow readers!


The Try Guys as YA Tropes

And once you’ve watched that, tell us which of The Try Guys you actually think fit into each trope!


How Would You Match Them?


About The Hidden Power of F*cking Up

To be our best selves, we must become secure in our insecurities. In The Hidden Power of F*cking Up, The Try Guys – Keith, Ned, Zach, and Eugene – reveal their philosophy of trying: how to fully embrace fear, foolishness, and embarrassment in an effort to understand how we all get paralyzed by a fear of failure. They’ll share how four shy, nerdy kids have dealt with their most poignant life struggles by attacking them head-on and reveal their – ahem – sure-fail strategies for achieving success.

But they’re not just here to talk; they’re actually going to put their advice to work. To demonstrate their unique self-improvement formula, they’ll each personally confront their deepest insecurities. A die-hard meat-lover goes vegan for the first time. A straight-laced father transforms into a fashionista. A perpetually single sidekick becomes the romantic lead. A child of divorce finally grows more intimate with his family. Through their insightful, emotional journeys and surprising, hilarious anecdotes, they’ll help you overcome your own self-doubt to become the best, most f*cked up version of yourself you can be!


We don’t know about you, but we think The Try Guys would make for excellent YA characters. Let us know what you thought below!
