YouTuber and Fortnite player ‘Tenser’ has officially joined massively popular esports and entertainment organization FaZe.
The org teased the addition in a cryptic Tweet on November 3, asking fans to tag their best guesses.
While fans’ suspicions were all over the board, Tenser himself even replied to their Tweet and tagged himself, to which FaZe responded, “No.”
They revealed Tenser in a follow-up Tweet, which they captioned, “We changed our minds.” Also attached was a picture of Tenser next to the FaZe logo in his classic Gucci attire.
Tenser is a content creator on YouTube, known for his gameplay videos and comedy sketches. He uploaded a video to the platform just after the announcement went live, where he explained the story behind his addition to the squad.
Tenser stated that FaZe Banks had invited him just after he’d hit his one million subscriber milestone.
“I had to keep slapping myself in the face as hard as I could,” Tenser said of his reaction to the news. “I had to mute my mic in Discord and made sure to keep hitting myself to make sure that it wasn’t a dream.”
Tenser admitted that he has been staying in the FaZe house for about a week, and will be making a full move into the space upon his induction. This marks a huge change for Tenser, who is a Massachusetts native.
Aside from his series of Fortnite videos and streams of the game, Tenser also competed in the Fortnite Summer Skirmish this year. His inclusion in the team marks yet another addition in their ongoing expansion.
