If there is one thing that is quite the reality of this era, it is that a huge number of people are making a living out of playing games on social media platforms. As absurd as that may sound, in this digital generation, it is nothing but a sound fact! Meet Jason Eugene, a 23-year-old gamer, who is almost as big as a show biz superstar, for his ‘YouTube’ channel titled ‘FaZe Jev’. For all those of you who’ve never stumbled upon his channel, it is all about Jev delving into intense games and sharing his strategic ways of taking down tough levels, with his fans of similar interests. Jev is not a one man army, he belongs to a professional e-sports team called ‘FaZe Clan’, who competes with other such teams over the internet. Long story short, this gamer has already got the world under his feet with his incredible skills and unique content. No doubt, his channel is something that has the youth going gaga over!
The Meteoric Rise to Stardom
Since his younger days, Jason always spent most of his time behind closed doors playing games, and soon decided that he wanted to one day turn this into a career. Few years later, while working a full time job with overtime, Jason would spend at least 4-5 hours making and editing videos for his ‘YouTube’ channel, sometimes even giving up on sleep. His ‘YouTube’ channel mostly featuring his ‘Call of Duty’ games and commentary, it soon gave him the opportunity to join one of the biggest gaming groups called ‘FaZe’.
Even though the youngster is highly popular for being a part of the ‘FaZe’ group, Jev once mentioned how it was never in his agenda to become one of them but rather to turn gaming into his biggest priority and even a career. Apart from gaming, Jev also takes to ‘YouTube’ to talk about his life-changing experiences growing up and even sometimes sharing close personal details about himself. That’s probably another reason behind his popularity. Jev is known for his mysterious vibes and only focusses on using his fame as an encouragement for other aspiring gamers. Nevertheless, with time and constant, untiring efforts, Jason was able to reach about 2 million subscribers and has earned over 149 million views. Safe to say that shedding all the sweat and the sleepless nights have indeed paid off!
