Jaryd Lazar, known as Summit1G, was born in Orange County, California, US, on April 27, 1987. He’s been a well-known American Twitch streamer around the Purple Platform for quite some time. He has a younger brother who also streams on Twitch.
As a child, he was fascinated with Counter-Strike and wanted to play professionally.
Summit1G started off playing Counter-Strike Global Offensive as a pro player. This was where he gained popularity and joined Exertus eSports as his first organizational team.
His most controversial issue as a professional Counter-Strike Global Offensive player was when he accidentally killed himself with a Molotov cocktail during the final match at the Dallas DreamHack Open in 2016. Because of his epic failure in the game, his team lost the chance to win the $250,000 prize money.
Over time, he played for recreational teams like A51 and Team Mythic after retiring as a professional player. He also plays for Old Guys Club along with retired CS:GO pro player Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek.
Summit1G created his Twitch account in 2011 but only started streaming in 2013. Being one of the first streamers on the platform, he became one of the most followed streamers on Twitch.
There was even a time that he was the most followed streamer until he was overtaken by the number 1 Fortnite Battle Royale player-streamer, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, in 2017.
Summit1G’s consistent flow of subscribers and viewers earned him a multi-year exclusive contract with Twitch in 2020. He has inspired popular streamers like ‘DrDisrespect’ and ‘TimTheTatman’ and big household names like ‘Shroud’ and ‘xQc.’
Summit1G has been recognized for his talents in gaming and streaming. He has been a nominee in the 2022 and 2023 Streamy Awards in the categories: Legacy Award and Best FPS Streamer. He has yet to win an award, but hopefully, he will in the coming years.
Summit1G married Desirae in 2013 but divorced three years later. They still remain friends and continue to have a working relationship as she is his current manager.
After his long-term relationship with his ex-wife, Summit1G is currently dating Caroline, known as ‘LilChiipmunk, ‘ also a Twitch streamer.
Summit1G started as a competitive Counter-Strike Global Offensive player. However, over the years of streaming online, he came to play and stream other games, including:
