Ross O’Donovan is an Australian voice actor, artist, Internet personality, and animator best known as the co-host of the web show, Steam Train with Dan Avidan, starting in 2013. The show was a spin-off of Arin Hanson‘s Let’s Play gaming web show, Game Grumps that he hosted with Dan Avidan. Ross himself provided the concept for Steam Train, based on the name of a PC gaming platform and retailer, Steam and imagined it as the 2nd prominent show on the Game Grumps platform. After the 2nd season of Steam Train, some of the parameters were changed and upgraded, thus allowing other Game Grumps internet personalities to co-host in place of Dan Avidan. Starting in 2004, he also published his animations to an entertainment social media website, Newgrounds under the name “RubberNinja.” However, when it came time to create his YouTube channel, the name was taken, so he decided to upload content under the name “RubberRoss.”

In 2014, he finally gained the ability to rename his channel to the nickname he was best known for. Ross also came to prominence as a co-host of other web shows on the platform, such as Hunting Monsters, Grumpcade, Guild Grumps, Doodle Doods, Dragons in Place, and Steam Rolled. He was also the creator of the animated web shows Gameoverse and GamerTonight on his personal YouTube channel. Ross was also behind the animations in the Australian YouTube Premium comedy series, Good Game in 2017, which was voiced and co-written by Arin. As a voice actor in video games, Ross has voiced characters of Double Denim Bridge Troll in the video game Paradigm (2017) and Mr. Dicky in the game Pinstripe (2017), while in 2019 he voiced the character of Shinji in the video game River City Girls. He has also garnered a large social media fanbase with more than 600k subscribers on his personal YouTube channel, more than 600k followers on Twitter, and more than 500k followers on Instagram.

  1. Holly Ann Conrad (2012-2018) – On September 29, 2012, Ross married cosplayer, special effects artist, and prop maker Holly Ann Conrad. Holly was featured in the documentary movie Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope (2011) and SyFy channel’s reality-TV series Heroes of Cosplay (2013). However, after just a little less than 6 years of marriage, on September 19, 2018, both Ross and Holly went onto their respective Twitter accounts to announce they would go their separate ways but would remain on good terms. One of the reasons for the breakup was that Holly moved to Seattle, Washington, United States, while Ross remained in Los Angeles, California, United States. In May 2019, new rumors surfaced regarding a fellow YouTuber named ProJared. He was accused of cheating on his wife with Holly Conrad, which led to him to get a divorce soon after. Ross posted an update to his Twitter stating that he has moved on from Holly already and that it had absolutely nothing to do with him nor did he care to comment or get involved in the matter.
