Billzo Kicked Off His Streaming Career at Age 17
Billzo’s interest in social media was kindled when he was a child. He created his YouTube channel on August 8, 2016, just ten days before he turned 12. However, he did not become prominent on the platform until 2021, when he started uploading
Minecraft gaming content.
Later in the same year, he joined the American video live streaming service Twitch and became a member of the BearSMP Minecraft server. At the same time, he was also working in collaboration with other BearSMP players such as Aimsey and Tubbo. Together with his co-BearSMP players, Billzo has taken part in and competed with other Twitch streamers and YouTubers in the Minecraft Championship (also known as MC Championship and MCC).
The championship is an invite-only tournament hosted monthly by the Noxcrew and Scott Smajor. It involves ten teams of four Minecraft-streamers and Youtubers who are set against each other in challenges of parkour, survival, teamwork, combat, and more for the sole purpose of establishing supremacy and entertaining fans and viewers of the game.
Until now, Billzo has not had the best outing since he started participating in the tournament. As an individual, his best score so far is 20th. While playing in a team that included Highkeyhateme and Aimsey, he has been able to finish in 6th place.
Months after joining BearSMP, Billzo’s association with them ended after the group broke up on December 24, 2021. Afterward, he and some other players, including Aimsey from the defunct BearSMP, joined BubbSMP. Subsequently, in 2022, the content creator joined TommySMP alongside Aimsey, who is one of his biggest collaborators.

Among the reasons a lot of people subscribed to Billzo’s streaming channels was because he opened up about his sexuality. During one of his streams on Twitch that involved a round table conversation with some other streamers, he revealed that he was bisexual. He made the revelation when he wanted to answer a question and started with the phrase “As a bisexual man…”
Being bisexual means that Billzo is sexually attracted to both men and women. Meanwhile, even though he was born male, he is not bound by the pronouns usually used to describe the male gender. According to the young man, he has no problem being called he/him, she/her, or they/them.
Bill mainly goes by he/him but doesn’t mind anything else. He is a minor (he’s 17). And his boundaries are basically don’t be weird. He also doesn’t like being shipped with his friends and fanfictions! 🙂
