His younger brother is @kobykj. Both of them are very close to their parents and grandparents.
Zuckles came up with it when he started playing Minecraft.
Zuckles created his first IRL video when he was in the seventh grade, because it was popular among kids his age at the time. He was a big fan of PewDiePie and would try to emulate him a bit in his initial introductions.
He bought Rust in 2013 after he watched a few of @Marplier’s YouTube videos and thought that It looked fun and started creating content for that instead. He and his brother were so addicted to it that they would even cut school to play. Although he was active on his channel, it was only when he started streaming with @Faceless that his channel really started to gain traction.
By the time he finished high school, he had enough subscribers to justify pursuing a fulltime career as a streamer. In 2017, he decided to switch to Fortnite, as he had become bored with Rust. Since then, he has become more of a variety streamer, and can be found playing CS:GO, Minecraft and WoW.
