It was a fateful day on December 5, 2020. It was the day Zach Beale posted his very first video where he played Five Nights at Freddy’s VR. Currently, the video has 42 thousand views. Beale mostly focuses on Indie Horror games, sometimes with a twist and sometimes they are just plain horror games.
Let’s learn a little more about Mr. Beale together, shall we? Contrary to popular belief, Beale is known as a TikTok star rather than a YouTube Extraordinaire. He was born on September 29, 2000, currently making him 21 years old. He went viral for a TikTok video called I’m a punny guy, I know that received more than one million likes.
Beale posts two videos every day, one at 4:00 pm EST and another at 9:00 pm EST. He chose to post at those times because he currently lives in Virginia with his fiance, Delice.

Life Advice with Zach happens from time to time on Instagram Live. Beale will usually put on the lemon filter and answer life advice questions sent in from the fans.
