Typical Gamer


Andre Rebelo, better known online as Typical Gamer, is a famous Fortnite YouTuber from Canada. He is also known for his live streams of other video games. Ryan Watt, the president of YouTube Gaming, has referred to Andre as "one of the most prolific streamers in the world."


Andre has worked with a wide range of well-known people, including Logic, Kyrie Irving, John Cho, Megan Fox, and Steve Aoki. He is presently a resident of Canada's Vancouver. He became a member of the 1 million subscriber club in early 2015.


He started his gaming career on YouTube with the game Red Dead Redemption. Rebelo had a relatively slow start, but he persisted in creating content, and after YouTube launched its live-streaming function in 2013, his GTA V live streams quickly rose to the top of the platform's most popular streams. He was nominated for the streamy awards in 2018 for Best gaming channel and in 2020 for Top Livestreamer.

Early life and career


On August 24, 2008, when YouTube was still in its early stages and Rebelo was still a teenager, he set up an account on the platform under the username “Typical Gamer.” His early videos featured Red Dead Redemption cheats, hints, and easter eggs. He kept on playing games over the years, but few people watched. He began playing Grand Theft Auto V in 2013 and went on to become one of the pioneers of YouTube Livestreaming.


“Red Dead Redemption - Free For All (34-9)” is one of his oldest videos still up for the public. It was uploaded in 2010 and features Andre playing Red Dead Redemption Free For All. This video has 315,326 views as of June 2022.

He began participating in Fortnite in 2017. His popularity soared as a result of Fortnite reaching 350 million players in the middle of 2020 and 2020 being the biggest and most successful year for Youtube gaming. He signed up for a second YouTube account called TG Plays on March 3, 2020, for the sole purpose of uploading Fortnite videos. Andre signed an exclusive contract with YouTube Gaming on March 26, 2020, to keep his talent away from competitors like Twitch and Mixer.


Andre created three other YouTube channels after the popularity of the Typical Gamer channel, including TG Plays on March 3, 2020, More TG on July 1, 2020, and TG Shorts on May 19, 2021, all of which were dedicated to furthering his influence on YouTube.


Numerous companies, including Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, OnePlus, and eBay, sponsor Andre. “Warzone: Clash of Generals” was developed by Andre in collaboration with Stratosphere Games, a mobile game studio based in Berlin. The ultimate objective of this was to build a stronger player base with support for streaming and eSports, enabling content creators to organise competitions and engage with their fans to fully immerse them in the streaming experience.
