1. Penguinz0 short bio: age, face, and measurements
Most of the followers and fans know him as Penguinz0 or Cr1tikal. But the real name of Penguinz0 is Charlie. He is American. Charlie Perguinz0 was born in 1994, on August 2, so Penguinz0 age is 24 now.
His parents are not famous people; the family was neither rich, not poor. Charlie had not ever mentioned his surname, which could help to find information about his family. The place where his parents work is also unknown to us. Only on Cr1tikal's page on IMDb, it is stated, that his surname is White, but he did not confirm this information.
There is no detailed information about his childhood. In several of his video streams he mentioned studying at one of the American schools and graduated the college, but no one knows which exactly. He does not like to talk a lot about his life and fans created his biography from scraps of conversations from his streams and guides.
As for his measurements, we know that Penguinz0 height is approximately 5 feet 6 inches as he mentioned. Photos on his Instagram profile reflect he has a medium build, but his weight is unknown.
The Penguinz0 face has been the biggest mystery to everyone for a long time. Charlie's first videos were only the recordings of videogame with his comments. 6 years later a YouTube animator published cartoon movie with a man dressed in a red hoodie who supposed to be Penguinz0 because the animation character had Charlie's voice. The hood covered his face, and people only made the assumptions about Penguinz0’s appearance. In 2015 Penguinz0 attached his Snapchat nickname under the video: it was the first time fans saw his face.
2. Penguinz0 career and net worth
Penguinz0`s journey to success began on 7 May 2007, when he decided to join the YouTube community and created own channel. He posted his first video three months later, on August 5 with a title: ‘Gears of war jetpack glitch (NO Standbye or lag switch) AP’, which gained 284,000 views. It was not one of the luckiest of his videos, but it became the first and big step to the popularity.

The 12-year-old boy was one of many lets players on YouTube, who had a dream to become famous. Now we see that his dreams came true. He continued publishing videos and guides from following games, which were at the peak of popularity 5-6 years ago:
- Gears of War
- Devil May Cry
- Modern Warfare.
For more than five years his guides could hardly gain 300,000 of views: this amount is considered to be small by the YouTube standards. All videos could not attract people to his channel. Penguinz0 Charlie was a stubborn person even in childhood and continued to work hard.
“Fallout New Vegas, All Unique Melee Weapons Guide,” was the first guide on his channel gained 1,000,000 views. Cr1tikal posted it on 23, Oсtober, 2010. Gradually, the number of followers and views began to raise. It was a sign that all efforts were not useless.
The same year he performed the role of commentator for the first time. Cr1tikal published a 48-second guide titled "Aliens vs. Predator Let Rock Achievement Guide." A lot of people in the comments below the video noticed the deep and low voice of the guy, who was 15 years old then. The seriousness and cleverness caught many game lovers. A little bit later he decided to add more jokes to the content. The number of followers increased because people liked his sense of humour.
The rate of the channel increased after publishing the next video titled "The Most Difficult Game Ever Created Gameplay and Commentary". Another famous American YouTuber Ray Johnson made a review on this video, which was a kind of promotion to the young lets player. The appreciation from another star helped to enhance Penguinz0’s reputation in the YouTube community.
Penguinz0 received his first million of followers after posting the “Holy Sh*t” guide. The 1st of September, 2014 became a significant date for this talented guy. By the way, now, in March 2019 he has 3,2 million followers on his YouTube channel.
The titles of his video sometimes contained the word ‘Cr1tikal’. A lot of people from YouTube could not understand this. Fans, who know his from other platforms wondered why is Cr1tikal called Penguinz0? His favourite bird is the penguin, so the reason for making such a nickname is easy to understand. Charlie’s nick on YouTube is Penguinz0, Cr1tikal is his second username for other platforms. In one of his podcasts, the player said that in childhood he liked to create weird usernames, so these maybe are some of those.
There is also one aspect a lot of people want to know. What is Penguinz0 net worth? At a rough estimate of naibuzz.com, this amount is even more than 2.5 million dollars.
It is noteworthy that money-making was not the guy's aim when he started making videos. It was his hobby, which could help him to get in the mood and overcome compulsive disorder he has from childhood. This psychological problem explains his desire to be a private person. When he noticed the growing popularity of his channel, the proud overwhelmed and motivated him. So then, hobby had evolved into serious work.
Now his channel consists not only of game guides. Charlie posts some blogs from life, videos where he speaks on some topic and reviews. The most popular headings are podcasts with the following stars:
- Matt Wattson
- General Sam
