FaZe Jev is one of the YouTubers who is a member of the famous FaZe Clan. He made his career uploading Call of Duty videos, with commentaries on his gaming strategy and style. He’s managed to attract millions of followers to his personal channel, while he keeps his private life low-key.
Early life, family
Jason “FaZe Jev” Eugene was born under the sign of Libra on 18 October 1993 in New Jersey USA, with African-American, Puerto Rican and Indian roots. He is the oldest child in his family, with a younger brother and sister. He was raised by his grandparents, and nothing is known about his mother or father, the latter leaving his family when FaZe Jev was too young to even remember it. He loved gaming and dreamt about turning his hobby into his profession, though he didn’t know how to do it since he was too young in those days. As for his grandparents, FaZe Jev is still living at his grandparents’ house with them, in the same room with the same old bed as when he started, only decorating his room with fresh wallpapers and some pictures in early 2019. FaZe Jev himself says it is not the main goal for him – to live a fashionable life, he just does what he loves most and feels happy.
FaZe Jev studied in his local high school, but he didn’t get good grades, and was said to be very rude and impatient with his classmates and even his teacher, so getting into trouble because of it. Now he understands he was wrong, regrets his behaviour, and admits that he just wasted his energy being a rebel boy, while he just needed to stay away from people who made him feel bad. However, FaZe Jev managed to make friends with some of his schoolmates, and was even a member of a metal band. When he was about to matriculate and enter college to study computer engineering, YouTube caught him.
He started making videos when he was still working at a full-time job at a factory. He came home late in the evening and edited and filmed videos for more than five hours, sometimes even sleeping less than he would normally do, going to bed at 2 a.m. while he had to wake up in 5 a.m. and go to work at his factory. However, he launched his YouTube channel on 17 October 2009, and called it “poketLWEWT”. In 2014 the FaZe Clan noticed him, and offered him membership in their team – Jev couldn’t be happier and agreed, and his channel now has more than three million subscribers. His first video was called “Modern Warfare 3 | 44-5 w/ Barrett | Hi, I’m JeV | Introduction Commentary”, and his fans like to get back to it from time to time and add a comment, with the date and the number of subscribers. His most popular video is called “Jev reacts to old ragetages” and has more than 4.6 million views. His fresh videos instantly get around 250,000-500,000 views in just a couple of days. He plays not only Call of Duty in his videos, but also such games as Mortal Kombat, Fortnite, UFC, etc. He also makes a lot of fun videos, and films various pranks and challenges. Thus he filmed a weird video about how he got a package with 40lbs of Lucky Charms Marshmallows in one huge plastic bag (which he unboxed with a fantasy sword taken from his weapon collection).
Personal life, girlfriend Alexis aka AbstractSweater
FaZe Jev has been in a relationship with a girl whose named Alexis, who is also known as AbstractSweater. They started dating in 2016, and a year later Alexis shared a photo of the ring FaZe Jev presented to her, a promise ring with small diamonds, considered to be a pre-engagement present. However, FaZe Jev and Alexis haven’t shared any updates on their relationship status – it’s still unknown whether they are going to get engaged or not. Alexis was frequently asked why she didn’t appear in FaZe Jev’s videos, and she once shared in her Instagram that FaZe Jev was not supposed to change the content of his videos just because he had a girlfriend. She said his videos on YouTube was his time with his fans, and her streams on Twitch was her time for her fans, and they didn’t want to mess up those things. As for Alexis’ education and job, she graduated in 2014 with a BA in Nursing and Paramedics. She worked as a nurse and enjoyed helping people, but quit her job because, in her own words, she hated working in the American Healthcare system. She suffers from lupus, and shared that FaZe Jev supports her very much, so she doesn’t feel so sad because of her disease.
Hobbies and interesting facts
FaZe Jev is well-known for his love to pink headphones, he literally wears them all the time and buys new headphones only in pink color. He also has a collection of weapons – a lot of his fans send him all kinds of knives, swords, daggers, cosplay swords and many others. Many times his viewers asked him to make a video on his collection, and he finally posted it showing all his knives and swords, which attracted more than three million views. FaZe Jev likes drawing, and sometimes spends his spare time painting, also making several videos of himself painting a picture from a painting tutorial, and laughing many times at the results of his attempts. As for his food favorites, he loves Cinnabons and strawberry ice-cream. FaZe Jev once joked that when he decided to buy some ice-cream in the middle of the night when he was done with video editing, a strange guy in the store mistakenly took him for a drug dealer, and FaZe Jev promised himself not to wear a black beanie anymore since he thought it made him look like a drug dealer.
