Jaryd "summit1g" Lazar is a full-time American variety streamer and is the sixteenth most watched channel on Twitch according to Twitch Metrics
The channel summit1g was created on December 1st, 2011.
Jaryd Russell Lazar (half Hungarian), born on April 23rd, 1987, is one of the popular variety streamers on Twitch and is a former competitive CS:GO player.
Summit1g has kept the moniker of "1G" from a Counter Strike community forum he was part of back in the early days of Counter Strike. Although he found success originally when WarZ was released, he gained a majority of his notoriety by streaming CS:GO on its release. He's widely recognized as one of the first who's made a name of himself as the top influencer on Twitch, with a handful of recent top streamers such as Shroud crediting him as one of the inspirations they wanted to get into streaming at the outset.
During the infancy of Counter Strike: Global Offensive, summit1g made a bold decision to commit to playing CS:GO professionally in 2015 while still catering to his viewers along the way. Being able to hear directly in-game strategy and call-outs, alongside the team's interaction was eye-opening to the operations of Counter Strike for his viewers. One of the biggest highlights from his semi-pro career in both CS:GO and streaming was that his viewership peaked at 90,000 when he streamed his POV as the competing player on the ECS qualifier in 2017 with Team Mythic. In addition to balancing an urge to stream his competitive gaming, he has also been able to showcase a wide variety of FPS games.
Since the Battle Royale genre has popped up and taken the gaming industry by the storm, Jaryd has strayed away from competitive play. He's known for streaming multiplayer games like H1Z1, PUBG, Fortnite, Apex Legends, Sea of Thieves, GTA V RP and World of Warcraft in the recent of his stream sessions.
Before taking streaming seriously as a full time job, Jaryd worked as a call representative for Time Warner Cable and he lives in Colorado Springs. He was married with a fellow Twitch streamer, Desirae Lazar. The couple separated in 2016 and the issue regarding their divorce has not been disclosed by both parties. She currently remains to be his manager. In 2019, Jaryd is dating Lilchiipmunk.
- The "1G" spam on Twitch derives from an incident where summit1g stepped on his own Molotov's flames attempting to defuse the bomb in the verge of winning a pro CS:GO match, consequently losing the game against CLG during DreamHack Austin 2016.
- Was swatted while streaming Pokemon GO.
- Angered some fans by playing Fortnite together with a famous Youtuber Jake Paul.
