―Wilbur Soot

Will Gold[1] (born: September 14, 1996 (1996-09-14) [age 23]), better known online as Wilbur Soot, is an English YouTuber best known for being the frontman and editor of the group YouTube channel SootHouse and has also edited for fellow Youtuber JackSucksAtLife before. He is a rising solo YouTuber and Twitch streamer, as well as a musician. He has released an album on Spotify and has made a few viral parody songs such as "Karen, please come back I miss the kids" and "The 'Nice Guy' Ballad". He was recently stuck in quarantine in Germany[2], but was able to leave[3]. Currently, he mainly does livestreams on Twitch and then posts edited highlights onto YouTube.

Before Fame

Wilbur was born in London on September 14, 1996, but he grew up in Brighton. He attended Sussex Downs College in Lewes and is now doing a degree in film editing in London.

He owned a channel called "Minecraft and Donuts" with a girl named Sophie. He made Minecraft videos on player-made maps with her. The first video "Doll test minecraft part 1"  was posted on May 22, 2011. They uploaded consistently until "Will and Sophie play: The Works | Part 2", where Sophie had to go to hospital to have an operation. So they stopped uploading for 2 years. Wilbur said in "I'M BACK! +An Apology" that she was fine but would not appear in videos anymore. However, he never uploaded on the channel again.

Another channel of his was named "ALittleBritOfWill" where he posted short films, music and vlogs.

He was involved in the first SootHouse video titled "Bulgarian Real Estate" which showed him and Soot George mocking websites selling cheap houses in Eastern Europe. It was posted in April 2017. He also appeared in many other SootHouse videos and is known as the leader. Despite the first SootHouse video being posted in 2017, Wilbur was active on YouTube beforehand, having posted several now-deleted videos.

Wilbur was the one who came up with the name "Soot", with its origin coming from a Tamagotchi forum.[4]

The Editor Wilbur ARG

From December 16, 2018 to February 23, 2019, there was an active ARG (Alternate Reality Game) made by Wilbur on the JackSucksAtLife channel. It has since ended but remains unsolved.

The ARG starts with Wilbur emailing Jack in a humorous way, demanding to be his editor. The link to the video is here. Jack decides to let Wilbur edit a video, causing Wilbur a panic as he was away from the computer when Jack finally responded. 48 hours later, Jack received the video, and it went up. Notably, there was a scene at the end of Wilbur, talking to the audience and acting paranoid. Jack decided to let Wilbur edit another video, in which Wilbur snuck in a secret link, beginning the ARG.


SMP Earth is a server set up by Wilbur, JoshA20, chippledipple and a few others. It is a 1:3000 scale map of the Earth with 75+ creators. In the server, people can own countries and claim land for that country. Creators role play with other creators and forge alliances or make enemies.

The server was not Wilbur's idea but was already in development, However, the team had decided to abandon the project, thinking nobody would want to play on the server. Wilbur, having heard this, decided to step in and offered to lead the project himself, seeing the potential in the idea.

The server is now up and running, and has a wiki documenting the events that have taken place so far. Wilbur is the founder and leader of the SMP Earth faction known as Newfoundland. He has created a railway system connecting his land to other sections of the map, and refers to himself as a "social butterfly".

Skyblock Randomizer

Skyblock Randomizer is a type of series popularised by Wilbur Soot. There have been 2 seasons of Skyblock Randomizer.

Wilbur spawns into the vast void of nothingness explaining the data pack and the premise of the series. Diamond boots were the first item Wilbur received from the sky gods. The first block that is placeable which Wilbur received was a birch gate. Many of Wilburs pets died in a matter of minutes.

In Season 2, Wilbur collaborates with Pyrocynical - who is less experienced at Minecraft. They each started on separate islands, built to each other and attempted to make a lovely house. There are a few minor new features like command blocks that doubles items. Just like in the first season, many of the pets died instantly, including "Tax Evasion" and "Mario".

The Rajjchalor and Nihachu

The Rajjchelor is a dating game show hosted by Rajj Patel on Twitch. In the Rajjchelor, an influencer comes on the show and eliminates people based on their tastes for a woman. Then, Patel reveals if they picked host (which means that the woman didn’t have an interest in the influencer) or love (which means that the woman had an interest in the influencer). Many big influencers have appeared on this "game show" such as Jschlatt, Quackity and most notably, Wilbur.

When Soot appeared on the Rajjchelor, he eliminated everyone from the show except for Niki. Patel then reveals that Niki picked love for Soot. After the Rajjchelor, fans of both Soot and Niki shipped them together as a couple, even claiming that their relationship rivalled Carson and Kate's, which was seen as legitimate at the time. Soot and Niki have appeared on each other's streams and have played Stardew Valley together. Soot also visited Niki and appeared on her stream during his trip to Germany.

Minecraft Championship

Minecraft Championship is a Minecraft Tournament for YouTubers and Streamers run by the Noxcrew, in which 10 teams of four compete in a series of 8 minigames decided by the participants. A point multiplier makes each game worth more as each round passes, incentivizing teams to vote for games they might be bad at early on in the event. At the end, the two teams with the most points face off in a round of ‘Dodgebolt’ to decide the winner of the tournament. This makes it possible for a team to win despite potentially having less points than the runner-up.
