Tyler’s parents are both of Welsh descent, and Chuck introduced Ninja to video games at a young age.
While attending Grayslake Central High School, Ninja played soccer and worked at Noodles & Company. Ninja started competing in video game tournaments, joining professional gaming organizations, and live-streaming his games while attending Wisconsin’s Silver Lake College.
Ninja (Tyler Blevins) Career:
In 2009, Ninja started playing video games professionally, starting with “Halo 3.” Organizations he has played for include Team Liquid, Cloud9, and Renegades. He began streaming in 2011, playing “H1Z1” and “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” (“PUBG”). In 2017, he joined Luminosity Gaming, playing “Halo,” “H1Z1,” and “PUBG” and winning the “PUBG” Gamescom Invitational Squads classification later that year.
After Ninja started playing “Fortnite Battle Royale,” he became more popular on Twitch, gaining 1.5 million followers between September 2017 and March 2018. When Ninja played “Fortnite” with Drake, Travis Scott, and Juju Smith-Schuster in March 2018, 635,000 watched the live stream, setting a record for the largest concurrent audience on an individual Twitch stream.
This led to Epic Games pairing gamers with celebrities at E3 2018, and Ninja and his partner, electronic musician Marshmello, won the “Fortnite Battle Royale” event. Blevins broke his previous Twitch record in April 2018, when 667,000 viewers watched him during Ninja Vegas 2018.
In 2018, Ninja teamed up with Red Bull Esports and held the Red Bull Rise Till Dawn “Fortnite” event in Chicago. By Ninja’s estimate, he made nearly $10 million in 2018, and in 2020, Epic Games honored his role in “Fortnite’s” success by adding a Ninja cosmetic skin to the game. As per Reuters, Electronic Arts paid Blevins $1 million to promote battle royale game “Apex Legends” in 2019.
Ninja left Twitch in August 2019 and started streaming exclusively on Mixer; after Mixer shut down in July 2020, he began streaming on his YouTube channel. As of early 2020, he was reportedly earning more than $500,000 per month from his “Fortnite” streams.
In 2015, Ninja and his family appeared on “Family Feud,” and they competed on “Celebrity Family Feud” in 2019. In 2018, he released the album “Ninjawerks: Vol. 1,” a compilation of tracks by electronic musicians such as Alesso, Tycho, and Nero, on the Astralwerks record label.
In 2019, Ninja appeared in the NFL’s “The 100-Year Game” ad which aired during the Super Bowl, and in August of that year, he released the book “Get Good: My Ultimate Guide to Gaming.”
In 2019, Ninja took part in Fox’s “The Masked Singer,” performing Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” and Devo’s “Whip It” in an ice cream cone costume; he was the second person to be voted off in the second season premiere, after figure skater Johnny Weir.

In August 2019 Tyler Belvins stunned his fans when he announced he had signed a deal with Microsoft to move all of his streaming exclusively to Mixer. Fellow esports superstar Shroud followed Ninja to Mixer two months later.
In June 2020 Microsoft announced it was shuttering Mixer and folding the platform into Facebook Gaming. Facebook reportedly offered Ninja and Shroud double the money they had previously been making with Microsoft to coming along.
They both refused to go to Facebook. As such, Microsoft was forced to trigger a buyout clause which meant Ninja reportedly was paid $30 million and Shroud $10 million to walk away. In August 2020 they both re-joined Twitch.
Ninja has said that he won’t stream with female gamers in order to protect his marriage from rumors. In 2016, Ninja was suspended from Twitch for 48 hours after he released the address of a donor with a racist donation message and screen name.
