What is ChocoTaco’s net worth? Who is ChocoTaco’s girlfriend?


ChocoTaco (real name – Jake Throop) is a popular gamer and streamer who has gained a huge following in a short amount of time.

While playing PUGB, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, ChocoTaco streams for multiple hours in a day on YouTube and Twitch.

He has made a name for himself in the gaming community and has no intention of quitting anytime soon.

The Origin Story

Born on September 22, 1988, Jake Throop grew up in New England.

Even as a kid, Jake enjoyed spending his time playing video games.

He played a lot of Genesis and Nintendo 64 games with the intention of getting the highest scores possible.

He remembers seeing the names of the game testers at the end of the credits when he’d beat these games.

Throop wanted to one day be one of those game testers.

In the seventh grade, he started to play a game called Counter-Strike, a multiplayer game first-person shooter game.

From then on, he continued to play competitively with his friends all throughout high school.

Throop and his family moved around quite a bit.

Apart from New England, Jake and his family also lived in Georgia and Kentucky.

As an adult, he headed to Chicago on his own, where he has lived for some time.

Before fully indulging in his gaming career, Jake Throop was an educator.

He worked as an area manager for a company that was dedicated to teaching kids about engineering.

The fun twist is that the company would use LEGOs to bring the fun into learning.

Throop was in charge of hiring, firing, marketing, scheduling programs, and teaching.

He loved his job and was living comfortably with the income he was making. However, it wasn’t his true passion.

Even though Throop always thought gaming as a career would be a true dream as a child, he knew that gaming wasn’t any sort of career.

As an adult, he saw the possibility of having a gaming career and decided to go for it.

In fact, in an interview, Throop states, “Even if I make less money [when compared to his ‘real’ job], I’d rather do this, hands down.”

When Jake first started streaming online in 2017, he was still working for the engineering company.

He would work eight hours a day at his job, then he’d come home to stream for another five to six hours, sometimes even more.

Throop would also stream on the weekend on his days off, leaving him with hardly any time to do anything else.

He states, “It was very exciting my stream was growing, but it was not easy.”

Jake fought through this rough patch in his life until he built his gaming career.

Soon enough, his income in gaming matched and even topped the income from his regular job!

Once he surpassed the income from his regular job, he decided to take the chance and put in his two weeks’ notice and become a full-time gamer.

In March 2018, ChocoTaco was signed on to Team SoloMid (TSM), a professional esports that focuses on gaming as a full-time career. TSM was founded by Reginald in September 2009.

The team competes in tournaments around the world.

”It’s literally a dream come true to join TSM,” Throop stated at the time. He added: ”I’m very excited to be a part of the TSM family and hopefully become a bigger part of the gaming community.”

Jake’s family was very supportive of his decision to pursue gaming as a career.

In April 2019, Jake received his own skins in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (weapon, shoe, and parachute). Other streamers that also received skins in-game are Justin “Just9n” Ortiz, Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek, and Henrik “WackyJacky101” Kjærulff.

In February 2020, Throop criticized PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds devs after the release of Patch 6.2. ”Loads of issues never get addressed. It’s hard to enjoy the game a lot of the time,” the streamer said. Jake continued: ”Whenever this COD BR launches, I will be taking a break from PUBG.”


ChocoTaco has a girlfriend, but he didn’t disclose her name to the public. A Twitter post hints at a possible name for his girlfriend — Kerri.
