Steven Suptic (born: May 2, 1993), better known online as Sugar Pine 7, formerly MlgHwnT, is an American skit creator and vlog maker. He started off as a Minecraft YouTuber, co-hosted the gaming channel SuperPanicFrenzy with Reina Scully, was a host on SourceFed, and now does "alternative lifestyle" videos on his personal channel.
The channel was created by Steven in mid-2012 under the name MlgHwnT. There he posted videos like Minecraft commentaries and animations. On his channel, he made collaborations with SkyDoesMinecraft, AviatorGaming, BurtGasm, and others. He was also part of YouTube groups TEAM MVG and BAHMLounge. In 2014, Steven created a second channel that featured less Minecraft called HWNTwo.
In March of 2015, Steven moved out to LA to pursue a job opportunity given to him by Discovery, which was to run a gaming channel called Super Panic Frenzy with Reina Scully. This channel was closely associated with SourceFed, both of which were created by Philip DeFranco. Super Panic Frenzy featured a large variety of gaming, a large portion being Japanese content, due to Reina being billingual, and a weekly podcast.
Sometime between late 2015 and early 2016, Steven turned his back on his Minecraft content, saying, "There comes a time in one's life where they look at what they're doing and think to themselves, holy f*** I'm 22 years old and I'm playing Minecraft for a living. So that's why I've strayed from doing those videos." After that, he rebranded his channel as The Steven Suptic Experience and started posting more vlog and challenge style videos.
Due to potential copyright issues and the channel not being as successful as was hoped, Super Panic Frenzy was shut down in August of 2016, though the channel still remains up with all its old videos. After a few months, Steven was re-hired by SourceFed as a host on the main channel. He worked there up until March 24th, 2017, when the channel was ultimately shutdown.
Reina and Steven created a podcast called Boys Only Club in April of 2017, which has its own channel. The podcast is similar to their previous one on Super Panic Frenzy. The last episode was recorded live at RTX Austin in August 2018.
Currently, Steven is focused on his personal channel, which has gone through multiple rebrandings. Suptic's channel is now officially rebranded as Sugar Pine 7 as part of the Let's Play family and Rooster Teeth. There, he continues to produce "alternative lifestyle" vlogs and, now, podcasts branded as "Beyond the Pine".
Sugar Pine 7
Suptic documented the shutdown of SourceFed on his YouTube channel, at the time called StevenSuptic, via his unique style using a combinaton of freeze frames and narration to create a semi-serious storyline. He continued to produce videos in this format, which often included James DeAngelis, a PA at SourceFed, and Cib, his best friend. The vlogs followed their daily activities, often with 'bits' where the group would act out skits, performing as exaggerated versions of their real life personas. Their style was later coined "alternative lifestyle". ParkerGames and his team, Jeremy Sauder and Andrew Givler, were also heavily featured in what later became Season 1. The name Sugar Pine 7 is derived from the cabin that the group stayed in during their visit to Idyllwild, often said to be the beginning of the channel as we know it today.
The channel was bought by Rooster Teeth in 2018, and now operate out of the Rooster Teeth LA offices. The team has also grown, with editors Autumn and Vicky and producers Jamie (previously Famous Actor James Allen McCune) and Mimi.
In September 2017, Sugar Pine 7 won the coveted 'Show of the Year' award at the Streamys, and were invited back the following year to present the same award. In October of the same year, Kyle Kizu of The Daily Californian named Sugar Pine 7 "the pinnacle of YouTube content creation." In July 2018, they were featured in Variety magazine.
Originally from Illinois, Steven lived in Wisconsin until he moved to Los Angeles to work at Super Panic Frenzy, where he still resides today.
He lives with his fiancee, Alyssa, and two dogs, Littlefoot and Winnie.
Steven had an animated series called "To Kill A YouTuber" and also "To Save A YouTuber." Where each week he took a comment on which YouTuber to kill. The series had 26 (TKAY) and 14 (TSAY) videos. The series had different characters like Bashurverse, mlgHwnt, ZexyZek, LDShadowLady, Vikkstar123, TBNRfrags, Deadlox, MunchingBrotato, SkyDoesMinecraft, Kkcomics, AviatorGaming, and more.
He also had an animated series called, "Wild Adventures" which, after a very long pause, started back up on October 2015 but was soon canceled after two episodes due to Steven not wanting anything to do with Minecraft anymore. Steven later deleted both "Wild Adventures" and "To Kill A YouTuber" series from his channel a long with multiple other videos.
Steven currently produces parody vlogs which center around his daily life and his career. Despite him often referencing his real life business and personal struggles (his audit, his place of work shutting down, etc.), almost all of the events in his vlogs are jokes.
