Harley Fresh, popularly known online as ‘Fresh’ or ‘mrfreshasian,’ is an Australian YouTube gaming influencer popular for his Twitch live streams and Fortnite content. He launched his channel in January 2016 but grew exponentially in late 2018 due to his Fortnite skills.
Harley, along with influencers Hershicals and the x2twins Jesse and Jordan, formed the Twinsanity squad, which dominated Fortnite in Oceania. The Renegades Organization picked up the squad, but Harley left them later to be a part of Luminosity Gaming.
The influencer developed a love for gaming due to his stepbrother, who lent him his PC to play several games. Unfortunately, Harley reported that his brother was an aggressive person who beat him, so the court allowed him to live with his mother.
While he earned his YouTube status playing Fortnite, he stopped playing the game competitively (until 2019) after the Cyberathlete Professional League season to focus on content creation and collaboration with other gaming influencers, including Lazarbeam and MrMuselk. Their collaborations gave Harley’s channel a major boost.
When Harley already had the means to afford an apartment and upgrade his equipment, the influencer created better quality content and uploaded more frequently, making him one of the fastest-growing channels on YouTube that year.
Harley’s YouTube channel is estimated to earn a whopping $4 million a year and a net worth of around $9 million.
Fresh has amassed 7.6M subscribers on YouTube, 4.4M followers on Twitch, 1.6M on Instagram, and 1.1M on Twitter.

Call of Duty: Vanguard
To promote Vanguard, PlayStation collaborated with Harley and other prominent personalities to swap skills. MMA champion Alex Volkanovski, hip-hop artist Youngn Lipz, world-famous tattoo artist Lauren Winzer, and Harley tried switching skills in the promotional video. Still, the highlight was on everyone else playing Call of Duty: Vanguard.
