She would continue her Slender series for 15 episodes while also playing other horror games like “The Walking Dead”, and as people enjoyed watching her reactions to these horror games, her channel gradually grew in popularity. She regularly received 10,000 views.
Around this time, Zai started dating Ricky, who had his own Minecraft channel called “Biggs87x”, and they started working together on each other’s channels. Around this time, Zai stopped playing horror games and switched to only making Minecraft videos.
Around 2014, Zai began a series called “Minecraft BF vs GF” which gained some traction and helped her amass a large following. She then began another Minecraft series called “Minecraft Comes Alive!” which quickly gained popularity and gave her the most views she had ever received.

Nevertheless, it continued to be her most watched series and regularly received over 50,000 views. But eventually, just like the first series, the series’ viewership fell to between 38 and 50 thousand views. After episode 30, though, the show gained popularity once more and began receiving between 77,000 and 120,000 views per episode. Along with Ricky, she also began a “Minecraft With Love” series that regularly received 50,000 views.
When Zai played the “Escape McDonalds Obby” in Roblox for the first time in 2016, the video received a lot of views. She participated in a number of other Roblox games, which helped her channel gain popularity. She reduced her time spent playing Minecraft and increased her time spent playing “The Sims 4” which led to those videos also gaining popularity.
