    I have a co-worker that is always talking about this "guy" and showing me his pinball stuff.
    He has an impressive collection.

    No need to downvote. He considers himself gender fluid, so that would be the correct way to address it.

    How old is this guy to be a huge enthusiast? Or is it cause he’s a millionaire and can spend stupid money on shit that looks cool?

    #9 1 year ago

    it came out months ago if not longer of him being a pinball collector, "someone" has streamed from his house multiple times

    #10 1 year ago

    You'd think with an unlimited budget an enthusiast would put together a better collection than a room off the garage full of new Sterns and a Supreme.

    You just answered my question above. It’s the money that made him an enthusiast.

    He keeps his TNA in the house .

    Jack Danger/DeadFlip streams from his house all the time! Jeffrey Star started as a “drag queen star” on MySpace and produced a really weird album that edgy teen girls listed to a ton, my sister being one of them in the 2009 “Hot Topic goth kid” era.

    He randomly left music and started a makeup company and then suddenly a few years ago he came into superstardom out of nowhere. His products blew up and he made millions.
    Now he has this huge pink house and a dope ass collection.

    He’s an interesting character but he’s pretty clever as a businessman. He may be unorthodox but people love the sassy gay man persona right now.

    A lot of fashion Youtubers have made fortunes ( I know he got plenty of my daughter's money)

    I'd be offended if he wasn't gay!

    dangit, quoted me before I could edit my douchebaggery! haha

    #21 1 year ago

    I’m amazed at how many of you know who this guy is. I’ve never heard of him until now

    Haha! Sorry bout that.

    I'm not irked by people wanting to poke or bugger anyone they choose, good on em'...and in em', even! I only get a bit fatigued from the sentiment that we're all a bit more unique, than we really are as biological lifeforms.

    I wonder what the trillions of bacteria housed in our flesh sacks, feel about our hair color, careers, political views, etc. Hmmm.

    Sidenote, Andy Warhol wants his 15 minutes back! Ziiiiiiiiiinnnnng!

    #23 1 year ago

    26min mark of the stream, he explains he is age 33 and has been playing pinball since age 12.

    #24 1 year ago
    Quoted from jdoz2:

    Surprisingly we’re allowed to talk about people being gay and *gasp* we can even make jokes! Who woulda thought! It’s part of being human. And I’m glad because Jeffree is introducing pinball to all sorts of people who otherwise honestly haven’t cared.

    Finally I have friends who are like “oh you play pinball?? I saw those on Jeffree’s Instagram! Those must be super old they probably haven’t made them in like 50 years...” and so on and so on. Then I get to educate them and talk them into submission about the history of pinball!!

    #25 1 year ago

    Ya thanks a lot darknight, like I really needed another f’ing rabbit hole to go down in YouTube...

    #26 1 year ago

    known about him for about a year , my daughter watches his on line video's , nice collection of games , heard Stern custom made a jeffree star pinball machine for him

    Thereby undoing all of Jeffree's hard work on behalf of the hobby! You can't reveal the throng of old nerds behind the curtain until the hook is set.

    I get your sentiment, but with today’s Information Age, lots of younger folks LOVE to have information thrust at them. I’m good at telling stories so most of them find it fascinating.
    I just hosted a local game shop’s weekly stream and it was all about pinball. They asked to have me back in 2 months or so when they’re able to get a camera setup to properly film REAL pins. It’s very exciting!

    So leave out the hard facts and design teams and just talk to them about the machines and that they still make them. Add in some funny stories and tell them about any local bar leagues! It goes a long way!

    #29 1 year ago

    Yeah, it’s no secret he’s a pinhead. I love the guy and wish him all the best. It’s refreshing when someone gives zero f$cks and does what they want and live how they want.

    #30 1 year ago

    My wife follows him too and was subscribed to his workshop in Amsterdam a few weeks ago, unfortunately the event was cancelled.
    She always shows me when he says something about his pinball collection..

    That house is stupidly large for a single person.

    He doesn't really know what to do with his money but he wants people to know he has a lot of it.

    Who cares he earned it him self he can spend it how he wants

    On lots of pinball by the looks of it lol

    #34 1 year ago

    I found out about him though his streams with Jack Danger. He was in chat on twitch during some of the Jack's other streams too. With the ravenous fan base he has, it was nice seeming him interact with a group that wouldn't otherwise watch his videos or freak out seeing him. He seemed like a nice guy and I welcome the diversity in the hobby. I know he has sent gifts to at least one young woman who works in the world of pinball.

    Love the 5,000 Sq ft “barn” on the property. Crazy!

    Completely agree. His accomplishments are impressive.

    The house is still stupid. His income is upper class. Posting about it on YouTube is low class.

    Odd, every time I do that I get called an a-hole.

    I never heard of him. My 12 year old Daughter knows of him well. She told me he has 63 pinballs. He has been playing pins since he was 12.

    Pinball isn’t that cool for 98% of the people out there, so not quite sure who he is trying to impress with buying 63 of them. I’m impressed though.

    Doubt he’s trying to impress any one if I had 200mil in the bank I’d buy far more then 63 just because I could

    he's actually a very nice guy. People love his makeup line. He seems very genuine on streams etc.
    It's nice to have someone popular and current that people look up to mainstream wise, that is into pinball.

    if he was at chicago expo or stern circuit finals as a guest, I can guarantee the line would be longer than it was for Elvira, Jen wow or a guitarist from a rock group.

    He also did this:
