Youngest Twitch Streamers

8 Youngest Popular Twitch Streamers

In 1980, The Buggles released a timeless classic called Video Killed the Radio Star. They read the writing on the wall. We were entering a new age of entertainment and saying goodbye to the past. In 2022, maybe it’s time someone made a version 2.0 titled, Twitch Killed the Video Star because the new age of entertainment is well upon us, and there is no looking back.

The internet has given rise to a new breed of celebrity and redefined what it even means. The way we consume entertainment through movies and cable programming on a good old-fashioned TV set is slowly becoming a relic, much like how we look at Walkman cassette players. The live streaming platform, Twitch, is leading the charge as the hub for new entertainers in gaming, ASMR, cooking, day-in-the-life content, and so much more. In one quarter of 2021, over 5 billion hours were spent watching gaming content alone.

There is something for everyone on Twitch, no matter how niche your interests are. Today, let’s take a look at some of the youngest Twitch streamers that have established themselves as premier entertainers in the rapidly expanding industry.

Ninja was at ground zero, playing a role in the initial groundswell in popularity of the intersection between gaming and streaming, thanks to his prolific skills in games like Halo 3. Entering the professional ranks of gaming while using Halo as the vehicle, he played for several premier gaming leagues, most recently finding a home at Luminosity Gaming. 

Tyler “Ninja” Blevins is the most popular streamer to grace the Twitch platform. His meteoric rise in popularity coincided with the increasing popularity of the #1 Battle Royale game we all know and sometimes love to hate, Fortnite. If you have young children, nieces, or nephews, there’s almost no chance you haven’t come across Ninja and his exceptional gaming feats. Credit to him, he is the embodiment of a professional at his craft. Thanks to Fortnite, his follower found grew from 500k in September 2017 to 2 million by March 2018.

Turner “Tfue” Tenney is a professional esports player and a close second in popularity just behind Ninja. In terms of pure skill, you can debate who you think is the best Fortnite player on the Twitch platform. What we know is Tfue is electrifying to watch, and an hour spent in one of his streams highlights what a huge skill gap there is between a gamer at the professional level and your everyday casual gamer.

Tfue amassed a substantial chunk of his following thanks to Fortnite, much like Ninja. If you’ve been following his career closely from the beginning, you know he earned popularity for Call of Duty, Destiny, and H1Z1 streams. His gaming prowess earned him a slot in the professional esports organization FaZe Clan.

Did You Know?

FaZe Clan filed a lawsuit against Tfue in 2019, claiming that he violated his contract through inflammatory remarks he made against the company while trying to form a rival esports group. One thing Tfue didn’t lack was ambition!

Kyle “Mongraal” Jackson is a U.K gaming phenom and member of FaZe Clan. His Twitch currently flaunts a modest 5+ million subscribers. His entry into gaming was through popular shooters, Halo and Call of Duty. This was the training ground that prepared him to dominate the Battle Royale genre. And that he did.

By 2019, Mongraal placed 13th in a Fortnite Solo World Cup, earning himself $225,000. Not bad for a high school kid! Despite Mongraal dropping out of school at 13 to focus on his career, his parents were supportive. And a $225,000 check was probably a great argument as to why conventional schooling wasn’t in their best interest.

Did You Know?

Kyle joined Team Secret in April 2018 but jumped ship to join FaZe Clan in July 2019.
