Preston Arsement was born on May 4, 1994 in Dallas, Texas to his mother and father. His parents divorced and his mother remarried when Preston was three months old. He said he has no desire to meet his biological father. He studied at the Travis Academy of Fine Arts and graduated from high school a few days after his 17th birthday. He also previously worked as a lifeguard before becoming a full-time YouTuber.
Before he became a full-time YouTuber, he was going to college and become a surgeon. During the summer after graduating, he started having 2nd guesses about becoming a surgeon. Preston stated that the summer started going downhill fast. He got into some bad stuff and started lying to his parents. It was around this time that he decided that college wasn’t really for him.
After thinking about what to do with his life, he finally decided to return to his YouTube channel, TBNRfrags, which at the time had around 200 subscribers. As his YouTube channel grow, he started uploading and livestreaming more and more until eventually Machinima reached out and partnered his channel. It was at this time that Preston and his parents realized that YouTube could become a career for him that he made money from, but more importantly it could be a career that he loved and from that point on, Preston has became a full-time YouTuber.
He has four brothers and one sister: David, Daka, Keeley, Caleb, and Joshua. Keeley, Caleb, Joshua and his father all have their own channels: KeeleyPlayz, TbnrCJ, TBNRJosh, PapaFrags, and Brianna, respectively.
One of his cousins, Landon, also runs a YouTube channel called Landon, originally a Minecraft-based, but as of January 2018, he announced his channel was changing to strictly Fortnite and vlogs. All in all, he has a very good relationship with his family.
Preston currently lives in Dallas, Texas, presumably near the rest of his family. He is Christian. In 2016, he started dating an LA-based YouTuber called Paige.
She also has a channel called turnthepaige, which as of April 2020, has over 80,000 subscribers. This was confirmed on April 18, 2016, though in February 2017, Preston and Paige sadly broke up for an unknown reason, though they are still very good friends. Preston later got engaged to Brianna Barnhart in October of 2017 and they were married in May of 2018.
They have multiple Q&A videos and vlogs featuring his wife and family on his main channel. Brianna is a nurse who enjoys singing and acting and is enthusiastic about Preston's occupation of YouTube. She has appeared in many Minecraft, Fortnite, Roblox and Among Us videos on his channels, and she has her own channel called Brianna.
Minecraft Championship is a Minecraft Tournament for YouTubers and streamers run by the Noxcrew, in which 10 teams of four compete in a series of 8 minigames decided by the participants. A point multiplier makes each game worth more as each round passes, incentivizing teams to vote for games they might be bad at early on in the event. In the end, the two teams with the most points face off in a round of ‘Dodgebolt’ to decide the winner of the tournament. This makes it possible for a team to win despite potentially having fewer points than the runner-up.
