Needs work[edit]

  • Birth dates
  • References for the biographical details. I hope that this is not a autobiographical article in violation of WP:COI.
  • A lot of POV problems. Racepacket (talk) 12:29, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Which one's Rhett and which one's Link?[edit]

Not sure if this article meets notability standards[edit]

As far as I can tell, they are a minor internet comedy duo. All of their albums are independently released--so they don't count towards notability--their documentary is also unreleased and only currently being considered to be entered into festivals (once again, as they themselves released the DVD it doesn't count towards notability under self-publishing guidelines). The only notable thing on the page is their brief stint on TV, but as that only lasted 4 episodes, it's hardly enough to justify a whole article around.

Additionally, a lot of the article seems cut and pasted and sourced from their personal website, which has neutrality issues. Not to mention many of the references are suspect: either broken links, self-published youtube vids, links to their own website, links to non-notable blogs, or articles not about them where they are only mentioned in passing once.24.190.34.219 (talk) 05:57, 24 September 2009 (UTC) IVAN 1# FAN —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.244.136.225 (talk) 13:34, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

While I agree the article could do with improvement, removing all Wikipedia articles that don't have more notability than 4 episodes on television would deplete the wikipedia immensely. They are the 20th most subscribed all time channel on Youtube for comedians, 51st most subscribed over all and the 44th most viewed all time channel for comedians. Their popularity on Youtube is far and away more than enough to make them notable. Geofferic TC 06:39, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

Why is this Article up for Deletion?[edit]

if it's up for deletion because they're a "Minor" internet comedy Duo you're wrong, these guys are getting their own show on TLC, they've been on Lopez Tonight, they're not minor what so ever. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 204.108.16.159 (talk) 17:08, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

Christians[edit]

Rhett and Link are both Christians.

They are "The Fabulous Bentley Brothers" on Phil Vischer's JellyTelly. Here, here, here, and here are some samples of their work with the company.

They also reported in an early interview in May, 2009 that they stated they used to work for a non-profit Christian organization before becoming the famous YouTube duo they are today.


Why is there nothing about this in the article?

Because I haven't gotten around to editing the article yet, and apparently no-one else has.--¿3family6 contribs 22:12, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
