FGTeeV, also known as FUNnel Vision or The Family Gaming Team, is a family gaming and entertainment YouTube channel consisting of a family of influencers from the US, whose social media handle stands for Family Gaming Teams’ Extraordinarily Entertaining Videos.
The family’s members are Vincent ‘Duddy’ Carter, Samantha ‘Moomy’ Ryan, Michael ‘Skylander Boy’ Ryan, Alexis ‘Lex/Skylander Girl’ Ryan, Chase ‘Lightcore Chase’ Ryan, and Shawn ‘Funnel Vision’ Ryan, not to mention their two family dogs Ollie and Oreo.
Vincent Carter began his career with a music YouTube channel called IntellVevo, where he still uploads content today. He then worked with his wife to set up another channel, the FGTeeV, in May 2013. Since then, their family channel has been one of YouTube’s most-viewed gaming channels, with more than 23 billion views.
According to SocialBlade, the channel hit one million subscribers in November 2015 and one billion views in December. Though the family found increasing popularity on their channel, they started YouTube by launching the TheSkylanderBoyAndGirl channel in November 2012.
Following the success of both the family channel and TheSkylandBoyAndGirl, the family aimed to expand their YouTube presence by creating more channels—Family Gaming SHORTS in 2016, DOH MUCH FUN in 2017, FUNnel Boy and Friends in March 2018, and FV Family in July 2018.
Aside from their YouTube empire, the Family Gaming Teams Extraordinarily Entertainment Videos team is a New York Times bestselling author for having penned graphic novels featuring the family in fictional adventures.
The team has amassed 22.4M subscribers on YouTube, 7.6M on TikTok, 472K on Instagram, 70K on Facebook, and 46K on Twitter.
