It’s 100 pounds. -Yeah, yeah, I can’t hang — -You have to lean it against —
It’s so heavy. You got to build
a whole new room around it. I want to put
this over here just for now so I can see your face,
because it’s giant. Explain this to me.
How does it work? What goes into it? Because I think people think, “Oh, you just play
video games and you won.” It’s like, no,
I think there’s — You put a lot of work into this. -Yeah.
-Am I right? -So, like,
long practice every day. Like, every day, I wake up,
got to, like, warm up my hands for 30 minutes. Then I got to pretty much,
like, you know, play — warm up my hands
by playing, like, “Fortnite Creative,”
stuff like that. -So, wait.
Walk me through your day. So, what time do you wake up? -We talking school day
or a weekend? -Let’s talk weekend.
-Okay. -Yeah.
-Maybe like 12:00, 1:00. -Oh, man.
I want to be you so bad, dude. I’m really — I’m so jealous.

at 12:00 noon, yeah? And before you warm up
your hands, what do you do? Yeah. What do you eat?
What do you eat at 12:00 noon? -Maybe a banana.
-Okay. Gotcha. All right, I like bananas.
-Yeah. -So, you get a —
But then you get on to the game and you start playing
immediately or no? -Yeah, I, like, get on,
warm up with that, and then I go into,
like, a call, talk to, like,
my friends, and all that, go over strategies and then — -Do you play just strangers or
do you play with, like, a — -No, like, a team, like, friends
and stuff like that, yeah. -You’re on a team now.
-Mm-hmm. -What is the name of your team?
-Sentinels. -Sentinels. Yeah, so,
you get on with those guys and you —
It’s Monday through — It’s every day or what is it? -Pretty much, yeah.
It’s like my job. -That’s — Wow. And did your parents —
I know they’re proud of you, but, at first,
were they like… I mean, yeah. But, at first,
they got to be like, “Hey, we got to talk, Bugha.” You know, yeah, let’s –”
What is Bugha from? -My grandpa gave me the name
when I was, like, a baby. He used to say like,
“Bugha, Bugha, Bugha,” and I used to laugh. -Oh, no way.
-So that’s where I get it from. -Hey, good for that.
I love grandpa stories. So, your parents
go, “Okay, this is fun, but you got to get
working over at, like, 7-Eleven or something. You got to get a job.” -Yeah, so, like, pretty much,
when they found out, like, I could actually do this for
pretty much a job, like, was when I pretty much got
signed to the team and all that. But before that, I just did,
like, little competitions and made, like,
a little bit of money off that. -Like, how much money did you
win the first competition? -$100.
-Yeah, nothing. -Yeah, nothing.
[ Laughs ] -What are you? 16? $100? You must have
freaked out and said, “Mom, dad, this is something. I can make money. And they’re like,
“It’s only $100, buddy.” But that’s a lot of money. -To me, it was at the time,
because, like — -To me, it is now.
Yeah, I mean… Wow, $100? So you win 100 bucks and then
you go, “I can do this.” And then this happens.
I mean, did you freak out? -I don’t know. It’s like I had, like,
no emotion, but, at the same time,
it felt, like, unreal. I don’t know. -Because you were just — You
were just in the zone? -Yeah, pretty much. -So, what time of day was
this that you won? -When it happened?
-Yeah. -Like midday yesterday. -Like when you wake up?
12:00 noon? Yeah. Woke up, had a banana,
won $3 million. No big deal. Not bad. So, I just — I’ve got to
congratulate you on this. This is great.
This is a great trophy. And I hope to
see you again, buddy. Congratulations.
-Thank you. -Good job.
-Appreciate it. -Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf.

  1. Jimmy is that you in this video if so react to it https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8HpG0l9cLos&list=PLyBip16i9yvWFfhvgTgvsSkALxZ-5KF02&index=3

  2. He only wakes up at 12 cause the rest of his lazy ass team mates and opponents are real teenagers lmao, so dw hes being smart. Lad sleeps the amount hes needed a night.

  3. Throwback to 4 years ago to when Jimmy made fun of gamers. Suddenly he’s treating it with some respect now that he know how popular it is and that you’re able to make money off of it.

  4. Banana ain't good on a empty stomach your should eat with a carb or healthy fat, example peanut butter toast and banana with some honey. Else you'll get acidity in yo stomach. You gotta combine it with something

  5. If it was me, I'd be on jimmy kimmel instead. But I guess no one likes me since I'm fat and a piece of shit!! yall care for that kid and no one cares for me!!!! I cant make it too your level!!! Omg I'm upset about it…..

  6. It’s kind of annoying how they’re laughing at him considering how he made more than they make in their life in about a day

  7. These adults are laughing but dude fortnite is the hardest game ever really he deserved it. It's not just a game people need to understand it takes alot of thinking to win fights. Hes smart and skilled
