Who is Faze Jev?
Faze Jev or Jason Eugene Vonderhaar is a 25 year old American gamer and a YouTube star, famous for becoming an extremely good sniper while playing the game “Call of Duty”. He was born on 18 October 1993 in New Jersey, USA, so his astrological sign is a Libra, he’s of American nationality, and of mixed ethnicity – one third Puerto Rican, one third Indian and one third African-American.
Early and personal life
There is not much information about his childhood because he likes to keep this part of his life private, but some sources say that he had lived with his grandparents when he was young, along with his three siblings. He spent most of his days in his room playing video games, mostly first person shooters, but he has also mentioned that he often played basketball when he was younger, but it wasn’t as thrilling as gaming! He played video games five to eight hours per day, which led to an improvement in his skills. He went to the South-Doyle High School which was located in Knoxville, where he also played basketball for the high school team.
Early beginnings and career
Since he was a fan of gaming from a young age, he started a YouTube channel in 2009 called poketLWEWT. At the start his channel didn’t have much success, but then started gaining popularity. The views increased when he released videos of himself playing or commenting on the game “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare”, which attracted millions of views, and caught the attention of the “Faze Clan”, a group of people who play this game professionally and compete in a variety of tournaments. He got an invite from them in 2013 which he accepted, and become a part of the “Faze Clan”. He never thought that he’d be playing the game he loves professionally, and that he would be a part of such an amazing community.
Raging in videos for views
After making all of his commentary videos, he decided to start a new series on his channel called “RAGETAG”. In these types of videos, people get very angry and nervous when they die or do something wrong in the game. Jason usually makes a compilation of videos of his friends or fans that send him things, raging and even breaking their keyboards or mice. These videos were a hit with the younger generations that played the game. Some people, and Jason, when they get mad, start shouting even with their headphones on, so each video of the “RAGETAG” series is usually loud and dynamic, and is the reason why he starts the videos by saying ‘HEADPHONE USERS BEWARE!!’
Jason gets a lot of money just from ads and sponsors, or the team that he plays for. Most of his income comes from his YouTube channel, as he still attracts millions of views on each video. Two of the companies that sponsor him are ‘GFuel’ and ‘Steelseries’. According to authoritative sources, his net worth is approximately $700,000 which is pretty big for someone who plays games all day, and hasn’t been in the business for long. If he keeps doing what he loves, making videos, he is surely going to raise that number by a few millions.

Jason isn’t married, but is in a long-term relationship with his girlfriend called Alexis. These two had actually met online, and continued to talk to each other, after a while deciding to meet up and go on a date; the relationship started there and has continued to this day. In 2017, when Jason left his grandparents’ house, Alexis moved in with him and their two pets, a dog called Ahri and a cat called Cameron.
Jason has Twitter and Instagram profiles on which he is quite active. A lot of people look up to him as a gamer, so he has to be really careful of what kind of things he posts online. His Twitter account has over 1.3 million followers, and his Instagram account rather less, at about 350,000 fans.
Jason is 5ft 6ins (1.67m) tall, has blond hair and dark brown eyes. He is pretty fit for a gamer, as he visits the gym at least two or three times a week. He really likes to look good, so he spends a lot of money on clothes, haircuts and hygiene. He is currently growing a beard and has said that he really likes it and won’t be getting rid of it anytime soon.
