Preston Blaine Arsement was born in Texas, where he grew up with a passion for paintball and the dream to become a pro-grade paintball player, but ended up in a different career. Arsement started working on his empire at 16 when he graduated high school in 2010 and started his career-opening YouTube channel — TBNRFrags.

Not long after the launch, Arsement caught the attention of the multimedia business Machinima, who offered him to join their team Respawn Crew in 2011. Arsement launched his second YouTube channel, PrestonPlayz, on July 4, 2012, but he uploaded his first video on January 15, 2013.

Since his first video in 2013, he started uploading at least four videos daily, which he would make alone. However, this young YouTube star wanted to add another addition to his empire when he decided to launch his merchandise line, which is now available globally and continues going strong. In January 2017, Arsement signed with the multimedia talent management company Night Media — with whom he is still today. A year later, on May 12, 2018, Arsement married YouTube star Brianna Arsement, who used to be a certified nurse but later launched her own YouTube channel — BriannaPlayz —and product line.

Arsement kicked off 2019 with a bang as Forbes ranked him as the number six highest-paid YouTuber, standing at 14.3 million subscribers on YouTube a year later. In 2020, Arsement was featured in an LA Times article and was nominated for the 2020 Streamy Awards. On January 12, Arsement and his wife Brianna Arsement debuted the reality TV series “PrestonPlayz,” where they introduced us to the world of “Minecraft.”
