While you may know Bella Poarch for her viral TikTok videos and growing music career, believe it or not, the young star is also an avid gamer.
When you think of Bella Poarch, a couple of things may come to mind. There is the fact that she is a TikTok sensation with over 84.7 million followers and 2 billion (yes, billion with a b), likes. You might also think of her as a rising musician with a burgeoning career that has so far resulted in two high-key bops. But did you know that Bella Poarch is actually into playing video games? There are many facets to this multi-talented young star, and one aspect people may not know about Bella is that she is a gamer girl.
INITIAL VIRALITY THROUGH GAMING
Most people assume that Bella’s claim to fame was her cover of M to the B, which became, and still is the most liked video on TikTok at over 53.7 million likes. While that is true, that wasn’t the first time Bella went viral. In fact, the first time Bella Poarch became a popular personality on TikTok was through her gaming videos. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of her page and you’ll see that her first videos were about her and video games.
Her first video was a skit of her playing on the PS4 as she acts out a scene of what’s it like to play online for the first time. That video went viral and to date has over 2.3 million likes and 31.5 million views. Her other gamer videos revolve around topics such as Call of Duty: Warzone, Animal Crossing, her Switch, and Fortnite. For a time, Bella Poarch was known on TikTok for her popular gamer girl videos as they racked over ten million views each.

Over the past year, Bella has also streamed herself playing video games and participated in gaming competitions like for Among Us. She even has her own Twitch channel that has over 134,000 subscribers. Bella is also friends with popular game streamers like Pokimane and Valkyrae. In fact, she had them appear in her Build a B*tch and INFERNO music videos as cameos.
Bella has stated in the past that she is a fan of Pokémon and that she used to collect Pokémon trading cards. She even has a credit card that looks like a Pokémon trading card. And if you’re wondering, her favorite Pokémon is Chikorita.

But Bella’s love of video games isn’t just limited to playing them, she also has been included in them. Back in June of this year, Bella Poarch was included as an emote in Fortnite. The emote was called Build Up and featured the player character doing the choreography for Build a B*tch.
NEWEST FACE OF HYPERX
Given Bella Poarch’s love of gaming, it’s no surprise then that she was tapped to be the newest face of a gaming peripheral brand. Just this early October, HyperX, HP’s gaming peripheral brand, would be their newest brand ambassador. In doing so, she became the first social media star to partner with the brand. As an Official Gaming Peripherals Partner, she was provided with a host of new headsets, keyboards, mice, mousepads from HyperX. As part of the HyperX family, Bella will join gaming stars like streamer HungryBox and esports stars FaZe Temperrr and Faxuty in HyperX’s upcoming Quadcast S microphone campaign.
“I’m loving the opportunity to bring my style and passion for life and music to the HyperX family. I bring my love for people to be happy and healthy in everything they do. I look forward to sharing this with HyperX fans, family, and community,” said Bella in a press release.
While some people may be quick to dismiss Bella Poarch’s gaming side as played up to get the views, it’s clear that she is a fan and likes the hobby. We would definitely like to see more of this side from her and maybe she could even do live streams of her just playing video games.
