Vincent Carter began his YouTube career with a music channel called IntellVevo, on which he posts till this day. The name of the YouTube channel, FGTeev, is actually an acronym for Family Gaming Teams' Extraordinarily Entertaining Videos, and as the name suggests, is as family-centric as it gets. He and his wife, Samantha Ryan set up a second YouTube channel, FGTeeV on May 24, 2013, and has since then become one of the most viewed gaming channels on YouTube with over 22 billion views.
Their content has been extremely popular and SocialBlade reports that the channel earned its first million subscribers by November 2015, and achieved one billion views the following month. Currently, the channel has over 20 million subscribers and includes vlogs, gaming Let’s Plays & commentaries, and even features music videos given Carter registered his first YouTube channel under the name IntellVevo in November 2012.
Though the family found a lot of fame and success under the FGTeev alias, the family initially entered YouTube by registering their TheSkylanderBoy AndGirl channel on November 27, 2012, with the channel currently boasting over 2.6 million subscribers and over two billion views.
FGTeeV’s first-ever video dates back to 31st May 2013.
Following the success of the original FGTeeV and TheSkylanderBoy andGirl YouTube channel, the Skylanders expanded their presence by registering Family Gaming SHORTS on April 28, 2016, DOH MUCH FUN on December 2, 2017, FUNnel Boy & Friends on March 30, 2018, and FV FAMILY on July 20, 2018.
As the name suggests, the TheSkylanderBoy andGirl channel is shared between Alexis and Michael featuring their Lets Play and commentaries, whereas FUNnel Boy & Friends mostly features Shawn and his gaming content. Apart from this YouTube empire, FGTeeV is also a New York Times Best-selling writer having authored four hugely popular graphic novels which feature the FGTeeV family in fictional adventure stories.
They have 8 channels in total out of which 3 are more predominantly used, such as FGTeeV, FV Family, IntellVEVO, Family Gaming SHORTS, Beasty Shawn, FUNnel Boy & Friends, DOH MUCH FUN, and TheSkylanderBoy AndGirl, amassing a whopping over 35 million subscribers across all channels in total. They won the Roblox Video of the Year in the 8th Annual Bloxy Awards. DanTDM and Thinknoodles (Among Us Gaming) are FGTeev's well-known friends. They are also known for making music like Slay All Day, The Other Side, and other songs.
The family has created several characters. FUNnel Boy is the mascot of FUNnel Vision and FGTEEV. His real name is Skip McGiggleson. His channel is FUNnel Boy & Friends. Postal Jenkin is the grumpy old mailman. Postal Jenkin's name is most likely a pun from when mail carriers started becoming insane, called being “postal.” His supposed wife is Granny from the namesake horror game.
Clarence is a caterpillar who can talk, and also the second main character besides Chase in DOH MUCH FUN. Raptain Hook is a pirate who raps. His sidekick is a boombox parrot named Squawx. Sensei Duddy is the sensei at Duddz Ninja Academy. He teaches Baggo Beans, Zeebub, Postal Jenkins, Gurkey Turkey, Derpy Bacon, Meggz, and Mart from Hello Neighbor.
Mart was mostly named mart as a joke by Fgteev when Hello Neighbor got stuck in a wall. Gamer Brat from the FGTeeV book series is a fictional character whose description is “Ready to play games anytime, just cover your ears when he loses!”
Studio71 entered into a development agreement with FGTeeV in September 2022 to develop and produce an animated series. They will be working with Cartoon Conrad Prods.
A father and son relationship will be the focus of their new show titled n00bies, which will be set in a backdrop of video game culture. The hope is that it will make viewers feel nostalgic about how games and consoles have changed over the years.
FGTeeV's net worth of $38 million primarily is from its eight vastly successful monetized YouTube channels. Apart from that, the FGTeeV family has been sponsored by numerous renowned brands and also has a series of spin-off graphic novels which feature them as characters.
Net Worth Spot estimates that the FGTeeV YouTube channel has an estimated net worth of about $37.95 million on its own given the 22 billion+ views it has received, and the channel earns an estimated $9.49 million a year based on the estimate that YouTube channels earn anywhere between $3-$7 per one thousand views.
However, these are conservative estimations and The FGTeeV Family could earn over $17.08 million a year. Social Blade reports FGTeeV earns anywhere between $37,200 - $594,900 per month and anywhere between $446,200 - $7.1 million per year.
Apart from this, the family runs six other vastly successful YouTube channels that boast over 12 million subscribers and over 14 billion views, so it is safe to assume the Skylanders earn a ridiculous amount of money from AdSense revenue alone.
Besides their extremely successful YouTube empire, the family also has their own mobile game, FGTeeV Ape Chase, and four spin-off fictional graphic novels that have been awarded the title of New York Times Best Sellers.
FGTeeV or its affiliated channel have at some point endorsed hugely popular brands such as Activision, The North Face, Target, M&M’s, Champion, American Eagle, Coca-Cola, Toy Fair New York, PUMA, Bonkers Toys, and PacSun.
FGTeev’s dominance on social media is very evident with over 6.8 million TikTok followers, while on Instagram they have 437k followers, and on Twitter, they have 34k followers.
