Everything you need to know about Ninja, the 26-year-old Twitch streamer who makes $500,000 every month playing 'Fortnite' in his bedroom
In just the last five days, he's gained an average of 83,000 followers per day on Twitch, broken a world record for largest number of in-game kills on a "Fortnite" mode called "Duos," and effectively entangled himself in his first large-scale scandal by casually rapping a racial slur during a livestream.
All this to say, Ninja has taken the internet by storm, and is receiving an unprecedented amount of attention. And Twitch projections show that Ninja's online popularity is only growing.
Here's everything you need to know about Ninja, the pro gamer who's bringing streaming into the mainstream:
Ninja is one of the highest-paid personalities among Twitch streamers, YouTubers, and esports players.
Ninja spends most of his time playing "Fortnite: Battle Royale," the internet's favorite video game right now.
Drake initiated the unlikely pairing, saying he had watched Ninja's streams before they played together.
Despite all the success, Ninja hasn't forgotten his roots.
And although he's managed to build a reputation as "one of the good ones" in the often toxic gaming community, Blevins has already made his first public gaffe.
Blevins hasn't always been this famous.
