Who is Penguinz0 and what is his real name?
Penguinz0 – also known as Cr1TiKaL, and whose real name is Charles Xavier ‘Charlie’ White Jr., – was born in the USA on 2 August 1994 – his zodiac sign is Leo and he holds American nationality. He is a YouTuber, card collector and a streamer on Twitch, who is perhaps best known for his videos in which he comments on video games.
Childhood and education
Penguinz0 is very secretive when it comes to his personal life, but over the years has revealed some details regarding his family.
It is known that he doesn’t have siblings, and that he is very close to his father who can be seen featured in several of Penguinz0’s videos in the past few years. Penguinz0 found out that he had developed obsessive-compulsive disorder while attending high school, and what helped him fight the disorder was watching the movie “National Treasure” every night before going to bed.
While attending high school, Penguinz0 spent most of his free time playing video games, but nevertheless had straight As – upon matriculation in 2012, he enrolled at the University of Tampa from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree on 7 May 2016.
Career as a YouTuber
Penguinz0 is best known for his eponymous YouTube channel which he launched on 8 May 2007, and which is today subscribed to by well over six million people, while it counts over 2.4 billion views of all Penguinz0’s videos combined. His two most popular videos are “A New Slapping Champion Has Arrived” which has been viewed over 14.5 million times since 27 June 2019, and “Glory Hole Repair” which has been seen nearly 13 million times since 10 February 2018.
Penguinz0’s first video – “gears of war jetpack glitch (NO Standby or lag switch) AP” – was uploaded on 5 August 2007, and he went on to upload many other gaming videos, but none of which attracted much attention. He gained recognition after he began commenting on the games he was playing, and was praised for being serious and having a deep voice – he subsequently introduced his humor and his sarcasm to his videos, and began to steadily build his fanbase.
What helped him become famous was particularly his video “The Most Difficult Game Ever Created Gameplay and Commentary”, which featured him while playing the game “QWOP”, in which one has to control an athlete and complete his dash – Penguinz0 was unable to finish the game, and kept cursing it.
Penguinz0 then got to sign a contract with an unknown company, which seems to be paying him for every video he uploads, although he then gives most of that money away to charity.
Penguinz0 has been active on Twitch since 15 August 2016 – he usually streams while playing “Apex Legends”, “Fortnite” and “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate”, while he actually mostly only chats with his fans. He has an average of 10,400 viewers per stream, while the highest number of viewers he has had on a single stream was 32,174. Penguinz0 usually streams around 37 hours per week, and is currently the 109th most followed person on Twitch, as his account has over 1.4 million followers.
Love life and girlfriend
Penguinz0 has been in a relationship with his girlfriend Tiana Tracy for several years now – she is also very active on the internet, and has over 17,500 followers on her Instagram account.
Penguinz0 first mentioned that he has a girlfriend in early 2018, but it’s widely believed that they began dating a year before that. The two are currently living together with their two dogs, as they are both huge lovers of animals.
It is widely believed that Penguinz0 was in a relationship with his college sweetheart from 2013 to 2015, as several of his fans claimed to have often seen the two walking together hand in hand – a rumor has it that they split because Penguinz0 wanted to focus on his career.
As of October 2020, he is in a relationship with Tiana, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
