Most YouTubers at least find a need to put a face to their channel but with SwaggerSouls, viewers are fine not knowing the real face of the channel. Considered one of the most entertaining YouTubers, his channel is basically built on gameplay clips and tutorials. But absurdly, the host has chosen to be anonymous and usually hides behind a helmet. His followers are drawn by that mysterious air around him and his unusual sense of humor. Let’s explore five facts about the mysterious YouTuber.
His YouTube fans know him as Swaggersouls but he was born as Eric. His date of birth is February 24, 1994, and he was born in the United States. There is a lack of information on his educational history, including the level of education he attained, probably because the world is yet to actually figure out who is behind Swaggersouls. In addition, little is also known about his childhood, parents and other members of his family.
Swaggersouls began making YouTube videos in 2016, although he launched his channel a year earlier. He started out with uploading gameplay contents and his first video was titled Casual Shoutcasting! | CSGO’ which showed him playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Soon, he added different contents like live-action skits and general updates. However, the unique thing about his videos is the choice of outfit he usually wears, basically his medieval battle helmet and avatar costume which make him look like a real-life video game character. Also, his strategy of playing games with people he has never met has also made him stand out from the rest of the highly competitive YouTube gaming community.
His Real Face
SwaggerSouls has done a good job of hiding his face from his ever-growing millions of subscribers. According to him, he wears a knight’s helmet at all times for his personal safety. The closest he has come to disclosing his face was in July of 2018 when he shared a live video titled “one million subscriber special”. In the video, a friend of his tried to unveil his face by taking off his helmet. However, he went on to confuse his subscribers all the more as a series of other faces wearing his famous jacket, as well as his chainmail coif, began to appear one after the other. It was later revealed that one of those faces was SwaggerSouls’ real. This was met with another bewildering twist that saw celebrity YouTuber PewDiePie rearing his head out of nowhere, declaring in a flippant manner that he is real SwaggerSouls.
Masked SwaggerSouls who had earlier stated that it was time for him to show his face, reappeared with another remark that some things are better not known. His face remains unknown to date. His over 3million subscribers can’t even pinpoint his accent.
