Pokimane Thicc, a streamer on Twitch and YouTube, has built up a huge fan base playing League of Legends for hours a day. She’s also making some serious coin from her videos and is giving male gamers a run for their money—all from the comfort of her bedroom and looking fabulous while she’s at it!

Every other day, YouTube’s hottest gamer Pokimane interacts with over a million viewers through her online videos. With a knack for comedy and storytelling, the streamer entertains her viewers while playing video games on a platform that’s predominantly been a boy’s club.
But she’s not just an entertainer who’s easy on the eyes. Pokimane has the brains to go with her beauty!
Not Just a Cam-Girl
Pokimane’s real name is Imane Anys. She was born in Morocco on May 14, 1996, which makes Pokimane’s age 22 years.
Her family moved to Canada, where she currently lives. But her family has apparently moved back to Morocco. She once tweeted that they watch her videos when they miss her.
This intelligent beauty is fluent in English and French, and she studied chemical engineering at McMaster University in Canada. She even gave a tour of her dorm room on her YouTube channel.
However, Pokimane decided to put her career in engineering on hold and take on a career in video streaming full-time.
Pokimane on Twitch and YouTube
Pokimane has enraptured fans on streaming sites like YouTube and Twitch with her comedy. She’s developed the ability to keep fans engaged with her online videos.
A game commentator, she’s a pro at League of Legends. She’s often cracking jokes while playing and unboxing geek subscription services. Instead of taking the flirtatious female Internet celeb route, Pokimane’s charm is being goofy—and fans love her for it!
Poki (as she’s mostly referred to) loves making peoples days brighter as she once said, “Sometimes people are having a bad day, or they are in a rut, and they can just tune into my stream and have a few laughs, and hang out with my community.”
She has been a bright student and has excelled in academics. So, her parents were surprised when she said she wanted to take a break from college to become a pro gamer.
Thanks to the support of her brother (who is also a gamer), she was able to become one of the top-ranked League of Legends players globally. Now, she has the support of millions of fans who follow her daily!
Poki also won her parents’ support. Crediting their open mind, she was grateful that “they didn’t just look at one crazy YouTube video online and say: ‘You’re doing this?’ They actually listened to me and what my ideas are and why I do what I do.”
In 2018, she crossed one million subscribers on both YouTube and Twitch! Pokimane has a secondary channel called Poki ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response), where she uploads mostly ASMR-related videos.
Though there are some who find this fad very strange, many find her videos soothing and addictive. There’s been a growing trend in people who love listening to ASMR videos.

She reportedly mints a snazzy $1,800 to $3,000 per post through Instagram endorsement deals.

She and other former League of Legends pros form a gaming collective and live together in a house. They conceptualize and create webisodes for a fun, variety game show.
Who Is Pokimane’s Boyfriend?
Pokimane is candid on occasion, but she’s notoriously private. You won’t be finding her revealing her family or love life anytime soon. But her ardent fans think they have cracked the mystery of her boyfriend.
At one point, there were rumors that Pokimane was dating her fellow YouTuber and Offline TV collaborator, Scarra. The two are regularly seen in videos together, with one showing Scarra doing Pokimane’s makeup, having a ton of views.
However, neither of them have commented on the relationship rumors. So, it could be possible that they are just really close friends!
Now, her hawk-eyed fans have observed her videos and believe she is dating Fedmyster. The popular video content creator famously edits the videos for Offline TV. And if you listen closely to some of her back and forth banter with him, it certainly seems like the two are a thing!
However, they haven’t confirmed their relationship. So, we’ll have to wait for the day Pokimane officially introduces us to her boyfriend. And if it happens to be Fedmyster, we’ll be happy to say we told you so!
