Round 2 of the FaZe 5 Recruitment Challenge saw the spirited top 100 take us through a day in their lives. Whether it was their routine morning rituals, unique personalities, or questionable food choices (@x_Scp), each one of them showed us why they are remarkable in their own way.
Let’s take a look at what some of the quirks, habits, and daily lives are like of some of the content creators who are sure to help lead the next wave of gaming and creation into the future.
Here are some highlights from the second challenge of the top 100.
Rising Above Hate | @AvoriLiz ⛰️
In a wonderfully choreographed and inspirational short film, Avori takes us through her daily experience with hate comments, doubters, and negativity as a female model-turned-gamer. The exceptional use of the voices of her supporters adds a magnificent element of inspiration, and we watch her take to the mountains to rise above the negativity, literally shattering all of the hate. Salute to Avori and the Avo Squado.
Hollywood Thrasher | @jacksonfelt 🛹
Young thrasher and YouTuber Jackson Felt takes us through a day in his life chillin’ with friends and just doing whatever else comes to mind. This particular day’s festivities included a trip to the Hollywood sign, some highway shenanigans, trampoline hoops, rope climbing, go karts, and a dope sk8 sesh.
Timpers World | @TimpersHD 🇬🇧 💾🎮
Oliver Timperly, otherwise known as Timpers, took us through his past as well as his present life (including a possible future life as a FaZe member? 👀.) This day-in-the-life experience is customized with an extraordinarily creative pixel art with a video game touch that you can only find in a Timpers design.
New Mom | @Cannaestia 🍼 🚌
To say that the daily life of animator Cannaestia has changed as of late would be quite the understatement. The recent arrival of her new baby boy has jump-started her life into a new chapter quicker than a hot cup of her morning, caffeine-laced coffee. This effort gives us a unique look at a day in the life of a fantastic animator, Fortnite player, Top 100 member, and above all else—new mom.
Code Bastrin | @Bastrins 🛋️
Bladen, a.k.a. Bastrins, takes us through life living with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a rare bone disease which has left him unable to walk. Despite this, Bastrins demonstrates how he’s persevered to pursue his passion of content creation and entertain an audience of nearly 600 thousand YouTube subscribers.
Aussie | @ParallelEJ 🇦🇺 ⚽ 🩸
Pro Australian fútbol player, comedian, and content creator EJ takes us through a day in his life in The Land Down Under, with an added Q&A element as well. Like many professionals in their respective sport, part of EJ’s free time is spent training to keep his skills sharp and part is spent with a refreshing recovery session at the beach. In a surprise turn of events, this day’s break led to a bloody encounter with a sea urchin, continuing his unusual streak of FaZe5 submissions in which he has drawn blood.
As you can see from a few of the many fantastic submissions, the top 100 finalists all come from a wide range of backgrounds, circumstances, and environments. Since September 4— the start of the FaZe 5 Recruitment Challenge— each of their lives has also consisted of a daily grind towards one specific goal: joining FaZe. We’ll have to wait and see how that goal progresses. #FaZeUp
