TimTheTatman is one of the guys who makes waves as a player on Twitch. He is known for his Counter-Strike gameplays. Since most celebrities nowadays seem to have a special name for their fans/followers, Tim is not left out. He affectionately calls his fans Tatmanarmy. With over 358K followers on Twitter, Tatman’s army is growing by the second. Here is what we know about the avid gamer.
TimTheTatman Bio (Age)
Tatman is not an average celebrity, so there is not much about his early days, education and so on are easily accessible online to the public. He sticks to his space – the world of Twitch, as well as to his YouTube channel, where fans learn about him through his revelations. We dug further and dug up some facts about TimTheTatman.
One thing his fans often think about when they watch him do magic with the gamepads is “how old could this guy be”? Well, don’t be fooled by the huge body and the big belly, Tim was born in 1990, on April 8th, to be exact. Yeah, he’s on the Aries team.
Not much is known about his upbringing, but it is clear that he played a lot, because he once showed that playing was always a part of his life. In his YouTube bio, Tim says he’s been playing video games since he was in the womb, and his fans might not agree with that anymore.
Obviously Tim has always been a nerd and he couldn’t be prouder of it. Tatman brought his gaming skills to the world of Twitch in 2012, and it didn’t take long for him to catch on. He plays games like Overwatch, Counter-Strike: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and World of Warcraft. But of these three, the fat man’s favorite is Overwatch. His entertaining skills have earned him many subscribers.
In January 2013, Tim broadened his horizons by opening a YouTube channel on which he publishes some of his stream videos. He now has over 264,000 subscribers on the channel with over 30 million views.
His Net Worth
Gambling has long since evolved from a mere means of having fun to serious business. People like YouTube’s PewDiePie are raking in six to seven-figure sums from their hugely popular channels every year. TimTheTatman is not quite on the same level as PewDiePie, but the fact that he gave up his full-time job to stream says a lot about how much the platform pays.
YouTubers earn mainly from ads, but it’s a little different for Twitch stars, as they earn from their subscribers. How? While a subscription to YouTube is completely free, a subscription to Twitch costs exactly $4.99 per month, so apparently the more subscribers you have, the richer you are. The richest Twitch star, Ninja, is said to be earning $500,000 a month. To put Tim’s earnings into perspective, he has at least $1.6 million followers on Twitch.
But subscriptions aren’t their only source of income. Twitch stars like Tim benefit from both donations and sponsorship deals. The sponsorship deals are usually in return for free gadgets, e.g. show a Logitech ad in exchange for a free mouse or something, but the very popular stars also make money. TimtheTatman is associated with brands like Monster Energy, the game hardware manufacturer, Razer, the American computer manufacturer and retailer Cyber Power, and the Japanese company Audio Technica.
It is estimated that TimTheTatman’s net worth is somewhere between 500,000 and 1 million dollars.
