Matthew Robert Patrick is a YouTuber and online personality known by his internet alias MatPat. Patrick rose to YouTube fame with his channel The Game Theorists where he presented various theories regarding different video games and the industry itself. He has branched out to more topics since then with two channels, The Film Theorists and The Food Theorists, that focus on movies and food respectively. He has over 31 million total combined subscribers across all of his channels and more than 6 billion total views.
Patrick was born in Medina County, Ohio on 15 November 1986. From an early age, he developed an avid interest in art and theatre. He was also good at studies and eventually graduated as the highest scorer in his class in high school. He received an academic scholarship that got him into Duke University to study psychology and theater. After graduation, Patrick initially decided to pursue a career in acting and moved to New York City but failed to make any progress for over 2 years.
He created his YouTube channel around the time of his graduation, in the year 2009. The channel was known as “MatthewPatrick13” and only featured his auditions and performances in the theatre. 2 years of unemployed pushed Patrick towards being more serious with YouTube and thus Game Theory was born. The topic of the first game theory video on his channel was the 1995 video game Chrono Trigger and its time traveling. His channel started growing after his videos started gaining traction and were getting featured by multiple popular gaming websites. Within 2 years of the beginning of the series, Patrick’s channel reached the 1 million subscribers mark in 2013.
Following the success of the series, Patrick created a new channel titled The Film Theorists, that would follow the same format but for movies and shows instead of games. The first video on the channel was the popular British drama, Dr. Who. Within a month of the upload, the channel had gained over a million subscribers. The channel has 10.8 million subscribers today and over 2 billion total views.
In 2015, he created a third channel called GTLive that is based around video game live streams and features Patrick with his wife Stephanie. Patrick and Stephanie have been married since 2012 and have a son together. GTLive is subscribed to by more than 2.84 million users. The next year, Patrick got a show of his own on YouTube Premium, called MatPat’s Game Lab.
Since 2020, Patrick has been running a fourth YouTube channel called The Food Theorists. It follows the same concept of the previous two channels but with food, food science, and industry theories. The channel has more than 3.61 million subscribers at this point.
Aside from his content and personality, Patrick is also known for his social work which includes multiple record-breaking charity live streams on YouTube. He owns the record for the most money donated on a single YouTube live stream, and he has done so on two occasions. The first instance was when he generated and donated $1.38 million through his stream. He himself broke it in 2020 with a total of $3.3 million.
