Evan Fong`s Background
Even though Evan is born in Canada, he comes from a mixed background. His mother is Korean, and his father is Chinese. He started playing video games at a very young age, and he frequently says that his father had a big influence on his decision to start filming these kinds of videos. Evan even started going to college, but after some time he dropped out and focused heavily on making his YouTube channel what he is today. At first, his parents were furious at his decision, but they accepted it in the end.
The channel itself was created back in 2011. This year seems like it was so long ago. This was the beginning of one successful YouTube career. The name for the channel was influenced by his father username on their PlayStation three. In the year of 2015, Fong became a part of YouTube`s big boys. That year, his channel broke the number of eleven million subscribers. Also, he became one of the biggest names in the gaming industry. Certainly, that name still grows.

When he is not making videos from his channel, or playing video games, he enjoys playing guitar and ice hockey and his friends. His YouTube channel is continuing to grow at the time, and we don`t doubt that it will grow in the future. We can surely say that YouTube channels and show are the future. Fong`s net worth is $20 million dollars.
