** In the review of ''The Internship'', he points out that he hates FirstWorldProblems.
** In his review of the worst films of 2013, he points out that he hates being referred to in the context of other fictional Jakes ("Oh, you're Jake, like Jake from _____!"), including "Jake from State Farm" (he said that ''two'' separate workers in a UsefulNotes/McDonalds called him that right before the video), and the lead character in ''WesternAnimation/FreeBirds'':

** ''The Croods'' is a family movie that was smart, entertaining for adults, contained no puns except a {{visual|pun}} one, and the children in the audience at the midnight screening were adorable and well-behaved. It was the opposite of everything that ''The Smurfs'' did to drive him mad.

* ADayInTheLimelight: She was the anchor of ''Softly From Cable'' (which sadly only lasted two episodes and a couple of scenes in other reviews).
* AmicablyDivorced: With Brad.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She may seem like one of the saner members of the cast, but when she gets angry, watch out.
** She's also not above winding Jake up for laughs.
* BiTheWay: She mentions being bisexual in the ''Silent Hill: Revelations'' midnight review.
* FanGirl: Plays this UptoEleven for the ''Breaking Dawn Part 2'' Review.
* FanService: Had a brief topless scene in ''The Cinema Snob Movie''.
* ItsPronouncedTroPAY: Her last name is pronounced "zuh-ROW-ski".
* MadeOfIron: She's prone to drinking things that make other people cry and barely turning a hair.
* PutOnABus: She hasn't appeared in a Midnight Screening video since August 2014. Unlike Jerrid, it's not for personal problems, [[CreatorBacklash it's simply because she doesn't like doing them anymore]].
** TheBusCameBack: She's back to doing episodes with the ''Film/{{Poltergeist}}'' review.
* {{Troll}}: Both in-universe and out-universe.

[[folder:Leddie]]
!!Leddie Alexander Lewis / Off-Screen Leddie

* {{Corpsing}}: Rare, but it happens (see Cunty [=McMomface=].)
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Off-Screen Leddie is off screen.
* SheWhoMustNotBeSeen: Technically at almost every movie Brian Lewis (her husband) attends, she either is scrunched down in the back seat, or running the camera (depending on how many people are there). In ''The Bye Bye Man'', she's hiding herself behind the passenger seat. [[spoiler:She briefly appears at the end of the ''Paranormal Activity 4'' review.]]
* KickTheDog: Though not by choice. Brian had to ''beg'' Leddie go with him to see ''[[Film/GrownUps Grown Ups 2]]'', with the promise that they'd see ''Film/PacificRim'' beforehand (she ''really'' didn't want to see Creator/AdamSandler). Twenty minutes into the ''Rim'', the projector crapped out. There was no such mercy at ''Grown Ups 2''.
** The other members of the team bring up how often he takes her to bad movies and that while she's a trooper, they don't understand why she lets him get away with it.
** The trope is even parodied in the Brian & Dave Worst of 2013", where he tells a story of convincing Leddie to go see ''Film/{{Oblivion 2013}}'' as part of a special AMC program, where he jokes about the possibility of this happening:
-->'''Brian''': (as AMC employee) "Well, the projector for ''Film/{{Oblivion|2013}}'' broke, so were just gonna play ''Grown Ups 2'' again."
-->'''Dave''': (Laughing) "She would've dumped your ass after that."
* PutOnABus: As her husband, Brian, has also left Team Snob, it's unlikely that she'll come back either.

* CommutingOnABus: Lives in a different state than the rest of Team Snob, so there are sometimes long periods of time between her appearances on the site.
* PutOnABus: Broke up with Brad three days after her birthday.
* RavenHairIvorySkin: Probably her most noticeable feature. Sometimes combines it with red lipstick for extra effect.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The "tomboy" to Sarah's "girly girl."
* ValleyGirl: To an extent; she's compared herself to Lynda from ''Halloween'' and commenters have pointed out how frequently she uses the word [[LikeIsLikeAComma "like" as a filler word]].
* YouthfulFreckles: Is the youngest of Team Snob, and the only one to have freckles (or, at least, the only one to have freckles prominent enough to be seen on video).

* AbusiveParents[=/=]CerebusRetcon: Jake's reason why he hates kids being mistreated was due to living in a home wrought with domestic abuse.
* BerserkButton: Mistreatment of children/pedophilia, it seems. See: his reaction to ''That's My Boy'', and why he had to miss ''Zookeeper''.
** In the words of Jake himself [[JustForPun 'I hate puns!']]
** Creator/AdamSandler, even before ''That's My Boy''.
** In the review of ''The Internship'', he points out that he hates FirstWorldProblems.
** In his review of the worst films of 2013, he points out that he hates being referred to in the context of other fictional Jakes ("Oh, you're Jake, like Jake from _____!"), including "Jake from State Farm" (he said that ''two'' separate workers in a UsefulNotes/McDonalds called him that right before the video), and the lead character in ''WesternAnimation/FreeBirds'':
-->'''Jake:''' I AM NOT THE ONLY GODDAMN PERSON WHO IS NAMED JAKE ON THE FUCKING PLANET, PEOPLE!!!
* ButtMonkey: Brad keeps sending him to watch bad movies just to laugh at his pain.
** Also because any video featuring Jake usually get the greatest amount of hits.
* CigaretteOfAnxiety: He's frequently fumbling for a cigarette after a bad movie. A good part of the ''The Smurfs 2'' video is him looking for a cigarette lighter and then cackling in delight finding one.
* ClusterFBomb: Is likely to give off one of these after watching a kids movie.
* CommonalityConnection: When meeting Brad's mother (who's a lesbian) he decided to lay the foundation of their friendship by saying, "We both have one thing in common; we both love pussy."
* EmbarrassingNickname: 'Madagascar Guy'
* FireForgedFriends: Claimed to have formed this relationship with Irving after the two of them saw ''TheSmurfs'' together.
* HairTriggerTemper: There's a reason he's Angry Jake. His tirades against bad puns in particular are quite a sight!
* HiddenDepths: He works two jobs. One as a pizza delivery driver and another as, of all things, '''a masseur.'''
* HumiliationConga: Seems to suffer this at the hands of theatre staff while going to see kids movies.
* PutOnABus: Disappeared after he and Brad both showed interest in the same girl and she chose Jake.
%%* QuirkyCurls
* StraightManAndWiseGuy: Straight man to Irving's wise guy. See above.
* SpidersAreScary: He hates spiders with a passion equal to bad puns. During the ''Anime/DragonballZBattleOfGods'' midnight review he steps out of the car and asks Jillian to kill one, refusing to return until it's gone.
* ThrowTheDogABone: Whenever he sees a movie that ''isn't'' outright torture.
-->"I've saw a good movie today. I've got nothing."
** Pretty much demanded by viewers after seeing ''Film/ThatsMyBoy'', where his rage was so great as to invoke TranquilFury viewers plead to Brad to let him see a good movie. Not too long after, he "guest starred" in the ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan'' video, where the first question was "Why are you here?"
** ''The Croods'' is a family movie that was smart, entertaining for adults, contained no puns except a {{visual|pun}} one, and the children in the audience at the midnight screening were adorable and well-behaved. It was the opposite of everything that ''The Smurfs'' did to drive him mad.
** He definitely had a great time in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie'', ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', and ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon2''.
** ''Dragonball Z: Battle of the Gods'' was a pure moment of fanboy joy for Jake.
* TranquilFury: He often starts like this. [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge He doesn't usually]] ''[[RoaringRampageOfRevenge end]]'' [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge a review like it though]].
* UnPerson: Since May 2015, Brad, nor any other members of Team Snob have kept up correspondence with him.
** Current videos for ''Midnight Screenings'' that reference older videos that Jake was a part of often tend to leave him out when they're brought up.
** Averted (in the "not even mentioned" sense) in the ''Film/JesusBro'' 12-hour livestream, in which numerous commenters asked Team Snob about Jake - Dave and Irving made verbally clear that they had burned their bridges with him and were just as glad to be rid of him as Brad was.
** Subverted in the ''Midnight Screenings'' for ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMenTellNoTales'' where at one point, when Brad briefly talks about their experience seeing the previous Pirates film ''[[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanOnStrangerTides On Stranger Tides]]'' (which Jake was a part of) he refers to the video having "Shit-for-Brains" in it, a clear reference to Jake.
%%* WeirdnessMagnet
* WhoShotJFK: [[AvertedTrope Averted]]. Jake cannot stand the conspiracy theories surrounding JFK's assassination.

[[folder:Jillian]]
!!Jillian Zurawski

* ADayInTheLimelight: She was the anchor of ''Softly From Cable'' (which sadly only lasted two episodes and a couple of scenes in other reviews).
* AmicablyDivorced: With Brad.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: She may seem like one of the saner members of the cast, but when she gets angry, watch out.
** She's also not above winding Jake up for laughs.
* BiTheWay: She mentions being bisexual in the ''Silent Hill: Revelations'' midnight review.
* FanGirl: Plays this UptoEleven for the ''Breaking Dawn Part 2'' Review.
* FanService: Had a brief topless scene in ''The Cinema Snob Movie''.
* ItsPronouncedTroPAY: Her last name is pronounced "zuh-ROW-ski".
* MadeOfIron: She's prone to drinking things that make other people cry and barely turning a hair.
* PutOnABus: She hasn't appeared in a Midnight Screening video since August 2014. Unlike Jerrid, it's not for personal problems, [[CreatorBacklash it's simply because she doesn't like doing them anymore]].
** TheBusCameBack: She's back to doing episodes with the ''Film/{{Poltergeist}}'' review.
* {{Troll}}: Both in-universe and out-universe. In-universe, she pretended that her favorite movie was ''Moment By Moment'' to get the Snob to review it (when she'd never actually seen it), and out-universe, she spends most of her Midnight Screening of ''R.I.P.D'' with Jake making him angrier and angrier and laughing as he rages.
* {{Typecasting}}: She tends to end up in roles played for {{Fanservice}}.

[[folder:Violet]]
!!Violet Rinorea

* AscendedFanboy: Was a fan of Brad's when they met in early 2015. Since they started dating, she's started showing up in his videos, particularly Midnight Screenings.
* CommutingOnABus: Lives in a different state than the rest of Team Snob, so there are sometimes long periods of time between her appearances on the site.
* PutOnABus: Broke up with Brad three days after her birthday.
* RavenHairIvorySkin: Probably her most noticeable feature. Sometimes combines it with red lipstick for extra effect.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The "tomboy" to Sarah's "girly girl."
* ValleyGirl: To an extent; she's compared herself to Lynda from ''Halloween'' and commenters have pointed out how frequently she uses the word [[LikeIsLikeAComma "like" as a filler word]].
* YouthfulFreckles: Is the youngest of Team Snob, and the only one to have freckles (or, at least, the only one to have freckles prominent enough to be seen on video).

[[folder: Brian]]
!!"Flaming" Brian Lewis / Drunk Brian / Slaver Brian

* AmicablyDivorced: With Sarah.
* BadassBeard: Has a bushy, lumberjack beard.
* BerserkButton: While not as bad as when it first started, he is quick to shut down, down play, and ignore that having been labeled Slaver Brian ever happened.
* BlazingInfernoHellfireSauce: What he reviews on ''Flaming Brian's Kitchen''.
* EmbarrassingNickname: Slaver Brian.
* GargleBlaster: What he drinks in the "sister series" to ''Brad Tries'', ''Drunk Brian Tries''.
* TheLancer: He's usually paired with Brad, and appears in just as many videos.
* LethalChef: He has a show in which he tries out different insanely hot chili sauces, which he makes his friends try, usually by dipping otherwise palatable food in them.
* OfficialCouple: With Offscreen Leddie.
* OneSteveLimit: There are actually two Brians in Team Snob, but the other goes by his last name, Irving.
* PutOnABus: Brad revealed on a livestream that Brian chose to retire from working on Brad's shows. He did note the parting was amicable...
** ...except Brian later [[https://twitter.com/torsoboy323/status/1146055199326396423 revealed]] that he left Team Snob in part because he believed [=#ChangeTheChannel's=] accusations against Channel Awesome, and that he hasn't spoken to Brad since his departure. He has made [[https://twitter.com/torsoboy323/status/1145315997383102464 other comments]] alluding to ArtistDisillusionment.
* TheStoic: Compared to everyone else, he doesn't get worked up over so many things.
** NotSoStoic: Most of the time. See his reactions to Creator/TylerPerry movies and ''[[Film/GrownUps Grown Ups 2]]''.

[[folder:Leddie]]
!!Leddie Alexander Lewis / Off-Screen Leddie

* {{Corpsing}}: Rare, but it happens (see Cunty [=McMomface=].)
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Off-Screen Leddie is off screen.
* SheWhoMustNotBeSeen: Technically at almost every movie Brian Lewis (her husband) attends, she either is scrunched down in the back seat, or running the camera (depending on how many people are there). In ''The Bye Bye Man'', she's hiding herself behind the passenger seat. [[spoiler:She briefly appears at the end of the ''Paranormal Activity 4'' review.]]
* KickTheDog: Though not by choice. Brian had to ''beg'' Leddie go with him to see ''[[Film/GrownUps Grown Ups 2]]'', with the promise that they'd see ''Film/PacificRim'' beforehand (she ''really'' didn't want to see Creator/AdamSandler). Twenty minutes into the ''Rim'', the projector crapped out. There was no such mercy at ''Grown Ups 2''.
** The other members of the team bring up how often he takes her to bad movies and that while she's a trooper, they don't understand why she lets him get away with it.
** The trope is even parodied in the Brian & Dave Worst of 2013", where he tells a story of convincing Leddie to go see ''Film/{{Oblivion 2013}}'' as part of a special AMC program, where he jokes about the possibility of this happening:
-->'''Brian''': (as AMC employee) "Well, the projector for ''Film/{{Oblivion|2013}}'' broke, so were just gonna play ''Grown Ups 2'' again."
-->'''Dave''': (Laughing) "She would've dumped your ass after that."
* PutOnABus: As her husband, Brian, has also left Team Snob, it's unlikely that she'll come back either.
* TheVoice: You won't even know she's there until either she's specifically asked a question or something makes her [[{{Corpsing}} break]].

[[folder:Allison Pregler]]
Because Creator/AllisonPregler lives close to Brad, she became his frequent Midnight Screenings co-reviewer for bad animated films and Podcast/RiffTrax'' presents events (and the occasional comedy).
----
* CanonImmigrant: From her own shows to Brad's.
* UnPerson: Following the [=#ChangeTheChannel=] controversy, she abruptly stopped appearing on ''Midnight Screenings'', which became apparent after she was absent from the ''WesternAnimation/SherlockGnomes'' review without any acknowledgment from Team Snob. This coincided with Brad and Allison unfollowing each other on social media, and Brad has avoided mentioning her on later episodes.
** It later emerged that some jerk sent a police officer to disrupt Laura's father's funeral with information that Brad was trying to kill himself, and both of them blame Allison personally for it. Allison herself [[https://twitter.com/obscurus_lupa/status/1145260492887351296?s=21 disputed]] laughing about the incident.
