What is Gamerboy80’s real name?
Gamerboy80 was born in the USA on 18 May 1999 – his zodiac sign is Taurus and he holds American nationality. His real name is Andrew, but he hasn’t disclosed his last name.
He’s a YouTuber and a social media star, who’s probably known best for his eponymous YouTube channel which he launched on 20 March 2014 aged 14, while it’s today subscribed to by close to 700,000 people, and numbers over 125 million views of all his videos combined. Gamerboy80 uploads videos related to the video game “Minecraft” and its mode “Bedwars” – he’s apparently the first player to reach 100,000 final kills and 1,000 stars in the game.
His most popular video – “so i snuck into a high school bedwars tournament…” – has been watched close to 4.5 million times since 25 May 2020.
Early life and education
Gamerboy80 was raised in Minnesota, USA, by his parents about whom nothing’s known as he prefers to keep his family away from the media’ attention. As he hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, Gamerboy80’s believed to be an only child.
He became interested in playing video games when he was around six years old, as it was then that he was given his first computer by his parents. Gamerboy80 played various video games, but after discovering “Minecraft” he fell in love with it, and was soon observed playing it alone.
He attended a local high school, and was physically quite active as he played various sports, and also showed interest in acting, however, he dropped out after around a year to focus on his career on the internet. Some believe that he has obtained his high school diploma by passing his GED tests, but Gamerboy80 hasn’t confirmed this; some sources also claim that he’s obtained his Bachelor of Business Administration degree, but again without evidence.
Gamerboy80’s not a big fan of social media networks. He launched his Instagram account a while ago but hasn’t uploaded any pictures, and is thus followed by only two people.

Love life and relationships
Gamerboy80’s highly secretive when it comes to his love life, and hasn’t spoken of any girls whom he might have dated, which is why there are various rumors circulating the internet concerning both his sexual orientation and current relationship status.
It’s believed by many that Gamerboy80’s gay, and that this is why he hasn’t spoken of any girls whom he’s dated. According to these rumors, he believes that this could affect his popularity in a negative way, and has thus decided to hide it from the community, however, no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Gamerboy80 commented on this.
There are also those who claim that he’s today in a relationship with a mysterious girl, but prefers to keep her away from the media’s attention because of the negative impact his fame could have on the relationship, and vice versa. This hasn’t been confirmed either.
