His parents divorced when he was just two years old, and that marked his childhood and the start of his many troubles. He switched time between an abusive father, and an alcoholic mother who later remarried and divorced again. He has cited his sister as his idol, and a huge help during his formative years. He was diagnosed with dyslexia which affected his academics, but still finished high school with good grades. He didn’t pursue a college degree, but focused on his YouTube career.
His interest in video games beat everything else, and in 2008 he started his YouTube channel, however, for some time he just watched other YouTubers, learning from their content – his first video “First gameplay | Black Ops: Escalation Zombies ‘Call of the Dead” was uploaded in 2011. He made a few more videos that year, all “Call of Duty” gameplay videos, and continued in the same fashion in 2012. From 2013 onwards, his YouTube career became his main focus, uploading videos more often, and starting to play other games, including “Halo 4”, “Minecraft”, “Battlefield 3”, among others.
Rise to Prominence
As his popularity was increasing, Kwebbelkop began making new friends, and in 2014 he started the gaming group with YouTubers Jelly, and Aquib. The trio would play racing games in the beginning, but Aquib left the trio after a few months, then Kwebbelkop and Jelly were joined by British YouTuber Slogo. Kwebbelkop was a member of the trio until 2019, when he left due to mental health problems that affected him and his content. He was overwhelmed by problems at the time, including his father’s death, so he quit the trio and just focused on his own content.
Since 2019, he’s made different content, such as “Try Not to Laugh” and “Try Not to Get Mad” challenges, then daily vlogs with his girlfriend and other similar videos, which has annoyed some of his fans mad, but others have started loving him even more. He now has around 15 million subscribers on his YouTube channel, and his videos have been viewed more than 6.5 billion times. Some of his most popular videos include “World’s Hardest GTA 5 Try Not To Be Impressed Challenge!” with 30 million views, then “Coke & Mentos Try Not To Laugh Challenge! w/ Robust”, which has been viewed more than 23 million times, and “Slapping My Face For 24 Hours In One Video”, watched over 21 million views, in addition to many other videos with millions of views that have only increased his popularity.
