BigBStatz is an internet sensation who has more than two million subscribers on his YouTube channel, mostly posting videos relating to the game called Minecraft. Let’s find out more about his age, girlfriend, net worth, family and success story.
Early life, family
Anthony “BigBStatz” Viviano was born 28 February 1990, in North Carolina, USA. Recently he moved to Germany with his wife, and they still live there, residing in Munich. Nothing is known about his parents’ names, ages or occupations, since BigBStatz has never posted any information on photos of his parents on his YouTube channel, or on his Instagram account. Nevertheless, he admitted that the nickname was made-up by his father who was very passionate about any help he could provide to his son to become a popular YouTuber. So his father took his time to make-up a name his son could use for any purpose and change from a short version to a larger one, and they both soon came to the “BigBStatz” as the final version of the nickname. He has two older sisters and two brothers, one older and one younger. He shared that in conscious age he never had the opportunity to grow with his father and his mother under the same roof ,as they divorced when BigBStatz was only two years old. He lived with his father and his grandmother along with his brothers, always visiting his mother on weekends. His sisters stayed with his mother. BigBStatz admitted that his family had some financial struggles, but he remembered his father tried hard to do his best to make his children happy. He shared the same interest with his sons – they all were passionate about playing video games.
BigBStatz attend a high school in North Carolina, and he remembers being laughed at and bullied there, but admits that it wasn’t so bad. He enjoyed drawing at school, and he also showed his interest to creating things. It was his school time when his father showed him how to do video editing, and it blew Anthony’s mind. He matriculated from the school in 2008 – there’s no information about him attending college.
It is known that BigBStatz started his career in a small medicine company in the position of a customer support representative. He worked there for several years until he had an enough money to make YouTube his main and only future source of income, and then quit his job.
BigBStatz once said started his YouTube channel when he was around 16 years old, then he decided to start another one, which he intended to make his source of income; that’s how his current channel appeared on 30 December 2009. In one of his Q&A videos BigBStatz admitted that in the very beginning he started his YouTube channel to teach people the things he could do better than others. He started making videos on the game called “Gears of War”, and showed some tricks and how to deal with glitches. In 2012 the game called “Minecraft” was released for XBox 360, and Anthony had an opportunity to play it since earlier his computer was unable to launch the game. In March 2015 he got a new desktop, and the opportunity to live stream; at that moment he had more than 400,000 followers on his YouTube channel, and was still working full time for the pharmaceutical company. In a couple of months he quit his job and moved to Germany, making his YouTube channel his full time work. BigBStatz used to stream at the platform called Mobcrush, and also appeared in some videos of CaffCast, a streamer from Twitch – BigBStatz doesn’t have his own channel on Twitch. Regardless, by March 2017 he had attracted over a million subscribers.
BigBStatz met his girlfriend Sarah in North Carolina, but she was originally from Germany, so they decided to live there. They married in 2015, one of the happiest days of his life which he would enjoy reliving if he had a chance. When they moved to Germany, Sarah applied for several jobs, and was accepted at one of them. They both felt very uncomfortable living far away from their parents, as Sarah’s family were also left in the US, but they supported each other and carried on. Sarah helped Anthony to learn German and also supported him in making new friends in Munich.
She used to have a Twitter account which she mainly used to share BigBStatz tweets, but she hasn’t been very active recently. She sometimes appears in his videos such as “Q&A with my wife” and “Ultimate Bottle Flip Challenge VS My Wife!”. Sarah is afraid of spiders, and she once shared she would rather hold a snake than a spider. Though little is known about Sarah’s previous life, she once said that she wouldn’t change anything in her past, since she was pretty content with the way things went.
Hobbies and interests
BigBStatz loves cooking at home, especially pizza. As for cuisines, he prefers Chinese and local German food. One of his favorite snacks is popcorn. He admitted once that he tried to eat only healthy food, as he has a very responsible attitude to his body and health, but loves eating cookies and often jokes about his passion, though when he was asked what he would choose – to stop eating cookies or to stop YouTubing for life – he claimed he would rather stop eating cookies since he loved making YouTube videos even more. His favorite cookies are chip chocolate, while he doesn’t really like oatmeal cookies with raisin. His favorite ice-cream is cream-cookie ice-cream.
As for his favorite Xbox games, the list definitely starts with Minecraft, then goes Fortnite (which he often plays with his subscribers) and many others.
