Black Ops 4 looks to be so much of a hit with the community that even reality TV stars are wanting to break into the scene.

Released on October 12, Black Ops 4 has been seen by many as a resounding success, with both casual and professional players alike sinking plenty of time into the title.

It even looks as though one such casual player, British reality TV star Gaz Beadle, has been liking the game so much that he may want to go pro one day.

Responding to a Tweet by Team Reciprocity owner Chad Larsson showing off the team’s new practice setup, the Geordie Shore star informed his 2.4 million followers that he wished to one day be in the players' shoes.

It might seem a bit out of the realm of possibility, but Beadle does have his own Twitch channel where he frequently streams himself playing Black Ops 4.

He’s also been known to play with CoD pros Matthew ‘Skrapz’ Marshall, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren, and Callum ‘Swanny’ Swan quite frequently, with Team Reciprocity's Tommey even urging the reality star on in the replies to the Tweet.

While it’s unlikely that Beadle will ever actually make the jump into professional play, this is yet another recent example of video games making an impact outside of the typical gaming circles.

Even if he doesn't end up going pro one of these days, he might have a future in streaming given the number of Blackout wins that he's been posting to his Twitter of late.
