Career Before YouTube
Before launching his YouTube career in 2012, Tyrone held several odd jobs, including as a salesman which lasted eight years, during which time he sold various items such as cars and security systems. However, he eventually tired of his everyday job, and decided to try himself as an online content creator.
Tyrone started his journey to 10 million subscribers in March 2012. At first, he was uploading videos related to World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), as he’s a huge fan of the sport and the promotion itself. He impersonated some of his favorite wrestlers, including The Rock – real name Dwayne Johnson – then John Cena, Hulk Hogan, and many others. He also did recap videos on episodes of “WWE Raw” and wrestling events such as WrestleMania, among others. His popularity was slowly increasing, and he started incorporating new content into his channel, talking about numerous life topics, including his own take on chivalry, and how to get over a break-up.
Rise to Prominence
As his popularity increased, Tyrone began reviewing full films and trailers, while he also stuck to his old material, talking about intermittent fasting, and other lifestyle topics. However, he realized that his review videos were garnering much more attention, and as his career progressed, he became mainly focused on this aspect.

He has continued to upload new videos on this channel until the present day – his most recent video is about the new Spider-Man film, entitled “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, and on which he reacted to the newest trailer for the film, and its release date.
Second YouTube Channel
In addition, Tyrone is a huge fan of video games and has dedicated an entire YouTube channel to this kind of content. He started the channel in 2016 and the first video – “Tyrone Magnus Plays The Walking Dead Season 1 Episode 3!!!” – was uploaded in the following year. Some of the video games that he has played, reviewed, or reacted to include “Bloodborne: The Old Hunters”, “Uncharted 2”, “Dark Souls 3”, “Call of Duty: Black Ops III”, and many others. He now has over 200,000 subscribers on this channel and more than 45 million views.
Some of his most popular gaming-related videos include “Ultimate Gamer Rage – Reaction!!!”, with 1.3 million views, then “Gamer Rage Compilation #3 – Reaction!!!”, viewed around 1.3 million times, and “Best Twitch Donations (Text To Speech) Compilation – Reaction!!!”, with around a million views, among many other reactions and gameplay videos.

He made his debut in 2015 as the voice of General Tamanegi in the TV mini-series “Dragon Ball Absalon”, and other roles include as Ethan Shaw in the thriller-horror film “Call Time”, while he is now working on the action film “Shadows”, scheduled for release in December 2021, plus filming for the thriller film “The Sweepers”, which will have its premiere in 2022.
Personal Life, Dating, Girlfriend, Single? Where Does He Live?

Her real name is Leticia, and she creates beauty and gaming-related content on her YouTube channel, on which she has over 50,000 subscribers.
