How Did FaZe Adapt Get Rich?
FaZe Adapt was born on June 5th, 1997 in Arizona. His real name is Alexander Hamilton Pinkevich, and most of his fans interchangeably refer to him as Alex or Adapt. He has four sisters, one older than him and three younger.
FaZe Adapt was quite active in his middle school and high school years. He was an avid basketball player, although he still loved gaming and Call of Duty in his free time. Adapt was unfortunately severely bullied in his youth due to his smaller than average size and his mild stutter. The bullying intensified after he was cut from the team, to the point hat his aggressors would physically pick him up and toss him on a regular basis.
Being cut from the school basketball team certainly did a number on FaZe Adapt’s confidence, and it didn’t help that he was socially awkward and had few friends. Defeated, he turned to his other passion – gaming. Adapt had been a fan of FaZe clan since its inception in 2010, and worked hard to perfect his ingame skills so that he would be accepted into the clan. Several of his early trickshot videos went viral, which resulted in him being accepted into FaZe Clan after 2 years of playing with SoaR, his first clan.
Shortly after FaZe Adapt was accepted into FaZe clan, the clain’s popularity began to skyrocket. As the core members began to expand their video repertoire, FaZe Adapt followed suit by creating his own vlogs and skits along with his usual trickshots and playthroughs. His most popular videos consist of pranks, skits, and vlogs from his everyday life.
When FaZe Clan’s popularity began to take off around 2014, FaZe Adapt abandoned his plans for college to pursue gaming full time. He moved into the FaZe house, a house rented by members of FaZe Clan where they lived and made videos together. That house was upgraded several times through FaZe Clan’s lifespan, eventually culminating into the rental of a 15 million dollar mansion with separate suites for the core members of FaZe Clan.
