Meet the Players


Ben's been gaming since consoles were measured by the bit and he's parlayed those skills into three Gamer Lounge victories! Now this loose cannon gamer is on the hunt for glory! And this time it's personal!
Pokémon Snap
Sea of Thieves
Mario Kart 8
Gang Beasts


Brooklin has been playing games since she was 7, but now is only good when… extra fun is being had that night. Any story or horror based games… watch out! That’s her specialty.


Caleb is an expert Valorant player with skills across all genres of gaming. Colors aren't his strong point #ColorBlindGang
It Takes Two


Chelsea is a master at trying her best in video games. Versatile in many different games. She is ready to take some W’s on The Gamer Lounge.


Chris is a gamer who thinks he’s good, but his record says otherwise. He plays damn nearly everything from his favorite game, PaRappa the Rapper 2, to NBA 2K. Some say he plays a variety of games just so he can be mediocre in every genre...
Forza Horizon 5
F1 2021
Mario Kart 8
Overcooked 2


Danny’s been a gaymer since he was wetting the bed (which may or may not have been last weekend). He enjoys a good FPS or any story-driven action adventure. May settle for second best but secretly is raging internally.


Devyn is a stealthy gamer. She might seem like a Noob on the outside but watch out--you never know when she's going to strike. If you recognize Devyn Howard, it may be from her hit show Unbox This, or yesterday when she dropped that thing right behind you. Yeah, that was her.
Rocket League


Ethan is an adept gamer who’s been playing games since he was 3. Turn-Based Strategy, FPS, MMO – you name it, he’s played it. He craves the taste of victory and will settle for nothing less.
Apex Legends


Frank the Tank, an avid casual gamer of all types, so that basically means he sucks at everything he plays but says he's “having fun” so it’s cool, I guess.


She may have lost almost every game at The Gamer Lounge, but she has the spirit of a puppy! She’s here for a good time, not a long time. Don’t doubt her though, her redemption story is coming... you’re in for a surprise.
Marvel's The Avengers
Five Night's At Freddy's: Security Breach
Dead by Daylight


Jeremy is an experienced Call of Duty player, who is now answering a different call: the chance to become a winner in The Gamer Lounge. If his FPS skills weren’t already an advantage, he’s also significantly taller than his competitors.
Game Pass Tournament
Gang Beasts
CoD: Modern Warfare II


Kendelle plays every game from fps to couch co-ops, but is she any good at them? She certainly gives it her all! The goal of this gamer is to have a good time.
Mario Kart 8


Niko has always been an avid Gamer. From exploring Azeroth on World of Warcraft to managing his farm in Stardew Valley, he has prepared his mindset, readied his trigger finger and is ready for any challenge thrown his way.
Dirt 5


A.k.a. the Sunni Bunni, do not be thrown off by all of her adorability. This gamer came to win, and if not, will probably be spotted helping her other competitors as they struggle. As long as she’s involved in the win!


This 5’2” menace may look sweet, but will absolutely clap you.... If you’re bronze in Valorant. Growing up playing video games with her dad, it’s shocking how scuffed this gamer is. A lover of all FPS & Wii games, Rae thrives on competition, and is ready to take the crown on The Gamer Lounge.
Far Cry 6
Call of Duty: Warzone
Rainbow Six: Extraction


R-I-C-K-Y, The YouTube Tech Guy has traveled through the worlds of consoles and gaming PCs, from 16-bit to next gen. Once thought to no longer have enough time to game, he has been pulled back in for a few more rounds.


Here’s something you didn’t know before you were in your 30s: Sid has joined the cast of The Gamer Lounge. Here’s a life hack for you: be very afraid.


Tom's been playing video games since he was in the womb. Seriously, this kid hasn’t touched grass in years. He mainly plays FPS and horror games, but he’s been known to absolutely kill at DDR.
Microsoft Flight Simulator
Forza Horizon 5
Super Smash Bros: Ultimate


Tori is a freakin’ baller. A pro Sims player, killer Animal Crossing villager, and a menace in GTA V, she has a competitive edge and a delusional hope that she’ll come out a winner.
Halo 5
Mario Party: Superstars
Call of Duty: Warzone


Vartuhi is 100% the best gamer there ever was or ever is. When she’s not gaming, she spends her time gaming, and gaming... She also might not have played half of the games in this series before, so she’s a bit of a wild card.


Will is an intense gamer and hardened veteran in the console wars. He is the toxic gamer you have nightmares about.
Fall Guys
Grand Theft Auto V
