|- Everything that comes out of HowToBasic's mouth.|
|Full name||Chris Smith|
|Residence||Southern Realm 6.2. Perth, Australia|
|First Appearance||Vomit Cake|
HowToBasic is one of the four greatest chefs in the world, alongside Filthy Frank, Maxmoefoe and IDubbbzTV. He appears in all three cooking episodes: the "Vomit Cake", the "Hair Cake" and the "Human Cake" episodes, where he filmed and helped the crew bake cakes.
HowToBasic has not revealed his true identity yet, saying it makes him "more mysterious". Fans have attempted to find him in Max's videos, yet still little is known about his identity. A fan theory is that he is just a large raw chicken with arms and legs. Despite all this, he has done an interview before. He only did the interview on the condition that his voice pitch was altered and his face was censored, so his true identity is unknown.
He employs the use of eggs as his trademark item, which is also seen in Vomit Cake when he throws eggs at Frank. In his own videos he throws and breaks eggs often, and probably has an egg fetish.
On Friday the 13, 2015, he reappeared in the "Hair Cake" episode as the camera man, again.
HowToBasic nominated Frank to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and possibly appeared in the video.
