Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang is one of the most recognizable names on Twitch. However, it wasn’t always that way. He used to work as an app developer for various companies, including Mercedes Benz and the NFL.
As a young adult, he had a lot of passion for Blizzard’s hit digital collectible card game, Hearthstone. He started making videos about it in his spare time on YouTube, the earliest of which can be traced back to 2015.
Most of it revolved around weird card interactions. They were also accompanied by infographics, which explained things in more detail. Redditors loved it, and it wasn’t long before the community embraced him.
As his popularity grew, he started streaming his Hearthstone games.
His username is a reference to the SI:7 Agent card in Hearthstone. When played in-game, it says, “This guy’s toast!” He also used to wear a toast-themed mask to hide his face, but accidentally revealed it in 2016.
In 2017, he joined OfflineTV, where he met some of his closest friends, and has since become an integral part of the content creator group. His popularity grew even more with the release of Teamfight Tactics in 2019.
At that point in time, he was the second most-watched streamer on Twitch. He also had 1.3 million followers on the platform and an additional 950,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel. But then he shocked the world.
Towards the end of that year, he announced a shock move to Facebook Gaming, making him their biggest acquisition. However, he left the platform in 2021 after a two-year stint and returned home to Twitch.
He’s been a pillar in the streaming community ever since.
