―Morgz's intro

Roll the cinematics

―Morgz's usual reaction to something very…nice.

Morgan Hudson (born: August 6, 2001 (2001-08-06) [age 19]), better known online as Morgz (formerly LegendaryGamerHD), is an English YouTuber best known for his pranks, challenges, sketches, and vlogs. He is well known throughout the community as YouTube's most popular prankster and vlogger, creating hits like the Pause Challenge, and known as one of the most popular YouTube prank channels.

Morgan used to be well known from FIFA until he moved on as a vlogger and has since gained huge success out of it. Infamous for his 3 AM videos, Morgan is often referred to as childish and over-exaggerated, as his videos are mostly for the young viewership.

Morgan's mother, Jill Hudson, is a huge part of Morgz's channel, often being featured in a lot of his videos either as a guest or a prank 'victim'.

History

The Beginning

Morgan started off with a gaming channel called LegendaryGamerHD (which he says in his Fat Morgz video). He would play Minecraft, Call of Duty, FIFA, and several other games. After reaching around 100 subscribers, the channel was renamed to AngryGamerHD, then later changed to MorgzGaming after reaching 1K subscribers which were where the nickname Morgz came from.

Previous Series'

During the MorgzGaming era, Morgan had been doing an Outlast series (videos currently private), a Shout Out Sunday series (also private), and a few vlogs throughout that time period before making a video about changing his name yet again. MorgzGaming then became tsMorgz, while continued to post to make FIFA, Outlast, Shout Out Sunday, and Call Of Duty content. He was also shouted out by multiple people in order to help him gain subscribers.

At around 14K subscribers, he released his first set of merchandise. The main one was a 'On the Diet Coke grind' design. He also started a Diet Coke challenge competition after he announced it.

Morgz also did gaming setup videos. His second public gaming setup became his first video to reach 1M views, his second most popular also being the previous Gaming Setup which he'd made around the time of reaching 1K subscribers.

FIFA 16

At 40K subscribers, Morgz changed his name from ItsMorgz to simply Morgz and got the verified badge a few days later. After that, Morgz uploaded more FIFA content than ever and gained a huge following. He went from 40K subscribers to 100K subscribers in only a month and continued making FIFA videos until a viral FIFA video called FIFA 17!!! that got 2M views in its first few days increasing his subscriber count from 160K subscribers to 200K subscribers.

Pokemon GO

Ever since the release of Pokemon GO, Morgz has done an enormous amount of Pokemon GO videos. His most popular one was MY BEST POKEMON CATCH!!! - POKEMON GO! - SO MANY CP 1,000+ Pokemon! It has over 6M views and was his most popular video in a week.

When Morgz hit 500K subscribers, he finally revealed his mother, Jill Hudson, and has done multiple videos with her since, and now does videos with her almost all the time.

Challenges

Morgz is well-known for his last to leave, and 24-hour challenge videos. These gained a ton of controversy for copying fellow YouTuber MrBeast and how their concept was very similar.

Controversy

Sexual Predator for Clickbait

Morgz has been exposed multiple times for misleading titles, clickbait, his Shout Out Sunday series that he used to run, and self-promotion in the comments when he was a small creator. Some of his subscribers have been disappointed in his content, leading to a decrease in subscribers per day. A YouTuber known as Kavos has exposed Morgz for making his mother a 'sexual predator' for clickbait.[1] The video he was referring to had a title called, "MY MUM HAD SEX WITH ME WHEN I WAS 12", which has since changed. Kavos's video even got it to be featured on DramaAlert, exposing Morgz and being good exposure to Kavos.

Morgz was also featured in a PewDiePie video, with Felix showing the video with the title of his Mum having "sex" with him at 12.[2]

Over-Exaggerating Videos

Morgz has also been criticized by many other YouTubers for having bland and unoriginal content, using clickbait to gain views, and using manipulative tactics to seemingly artificially inflate his channel. In ImAllexx’s video about Morgz, he points out that Morgz is tipping a fake pizza delivery guy in his video “TIPPING PIZZA DELIVERY GUYS FOR EVERY KILL IN FORTNITE” and that even if Morgz was actually giving away money, he’d be able to make it back anyways, “with the f**king mid-roll ads he put in the damn video.”, additionally, the Pizza Delivery guy was Morgan's real-life friend Ryan 'ItsHaber' Haber.

He has also been exposed by multiple YouTubers that his videos are not intended towards kids by showing inappropriate behavior in thumbnails and that all of his content is staged to trick his audience.

Copying Viral Video Ideas & MrBeast

YouTuber Jimmy Donaldson (MrBeast) was aware of Morgz copying his ideas thanks to a tweet from Chandler Hallow, an affiliate for Jimmy, who uploaded a screenshot comparing Morgz's videos to MrBeast.[3]

Morgan’s videos appeared to exact copies of MrBeast’s own content, containing challenges such as “I spent 24 hours in slime” and “I put 100 million orbeez in my mom’s backyard,” etc. While Chandler was rather dubious about Morgan copycatting, MrBeast had a measured response to the situation. “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” he wrote of the issue, appearing to take Morgan's stolen video ideas in stride.

However, other YouTubers weren’t as nonplussed by Morgz’s videos, with the likes of FaZe Banks calling MrBeast’s response “too nice.” MrBeast went on to claim that it would be “hypocritical” of him to call out Morgan for using his video ideas, claiming that he gets inspiration from other YouTube channels as well.

Manipulating Female's Body

On May 29, 2020, Morgan uploaded a video "GIRLFRIEND Controls My Life For 24 HOURS! - Challenge", but in the thumbnail, he showed his ex-girlfriend Kiera Bridget. After finding out about this, Kiera posted a series of tweets exposing Morgan for using her body and relationship for views, being manipulative during their relationship, and even getting mad at her for visiting her sick mother because it was "not good for business." The thumbnail has since been changed, however, Morgan has not responded to any criticism given due to this.

Family

Morgan's mother, Jill Hudson, has been in a variety of his videos, featured in almost every recent video currently. Jill has her own YouTube channel called "Morgz Mum". She also has a Twitter @BigJillHudson. Morgan's dad, Darren Hudson, and stepdad, Martin, known as Bald Martin, have also been in a few of Morgan's videos. Darren does not have a YouTube channel, just a Twitter account[4]. Morgan also lives his 'sibling', Jenson Bell, nicknamed Jed Hudson, known as "Mini Morgz", but however he's not related to Morgan.

Girlfriend

Morgan has met up with multiple girls in the past but was recently dating another YouTuber known as Kiera Bridget. She has done a lot of videos with Morgz. Kiera and Morgan are no longer together but are still really good friends (as Morgan stated in an Instagram story). They announced their breakup on July 30th, 2019 on Instagram and Twitter. As Morgan states on his Instagram story: "It's kind of been obvious but I wanted to share that Kiera and I are no longer dating, but we remain good friends."

Morgz is rumoured to be dating Instagrammer Tamzin Taber. However, it's not been fully confirmed that this is true.
