TIME’s second annual list of the most influential people on the Internet has finally arrived.
The usual cast of characters like Kim Kardashian and Drake made the mag, but newcomers like Caitlyn Jenner and J.K. Rowling have rightfully earned their spot as well. Thankfully, Kanye West was mentioned (his absence would’ve led to another epic firestorm of tweets). Aside from notable celebrities, a bunch of people who aren’t as well-known also made the cut this year.
Here are the top 5 entries you may be surprised to find on TIME’s newest list.
5. Tess Holliday
With body-shaming running rampant on social media nowadays, plus-size model Tess Holliday is here with her #EffYourBeautyStandards hashtag. The model currently has 1.1 million followers and she’s the first size-22 model to ever be signed to a major agency. Keep flexing Tess, keep flexing.
4. Lele Pons
You might not know Lele Pons unless you’re a frequent Vine user. She’s currently the most watched person on the app, where her six-second videos have been viewed over nearly 8 billion times.
3. James Corden
As old late night hosts begin to retire, the new school is flourishing. One of the guys recently added to the roster is James Corden, whose Late Late Show has been lauded for hit skits like Carpool Karaoke, in which he rides around with singers and does his best to hit their high notes. The Justin Bieber one is comedic gold.
2. DJ Khaled
DJ Khaled is influential. He promotes positivity and most importantly, urges his crazy amount of Snapchat followers not to pay attention to the f*ckbois. Obviously, *they* didn’t want Khaled to be on the list, so you already know what he had to do. Lion order!
1. Josh Holz and Daniel Lara
That’s right, the California teens behind the viral “Damn, Daniel” Snapchats are pretty influential on the internet. The YouTube video of the Snapchat compilation has over 8 million views, and the two even appeared on Ellen. Josh and Daniel are doing good with their newfound fame; the two donated the lifetime supply of Vans they received to kids at a local hospital.
