Lui Calibre is one of the most popular YouTubers, who impresses his fans with creative and fun videos on various games. His way to success was not very easy, and he worked hard to produce enough quality content for his channel to attract his audience. Let’s find out more about his real name, age, current girlfriend, etc.
Early life, family
Luis Frederick Pablo was born on 4 July 1984, in San Diego, California USA, so under the sign of Cancer, and holding American nationality. Lui hasn’t shared much information about his family members – he’s never revealed his parents’ names, ages or occupations, and hasn’t mentioned anything about siblings, so no one knows if he is the only child in his family or not. Lui prefers to keep his private life low-key. From his early childhood he enjoyed playing video games, but didn’t imagine he would be able to make his passion into a job. When he was still a small kid, his favorite games’ list included Nintendo 64’ classic games such as Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing and Legend of Zelda.
Little is known about Lui’s educational background, except that he matriculated from his high school in San Diego in 2002; he’s never mentioned college or university.
When and why Lui Calibre adopted his alias is unknown, but he apparently used it when he started his YouTube channel in January 2009, and uploaded his first video in May 2010, entitled “Red Dead Redemption: Easy and Fast XP”, which has attracted over 200,000 views at the moment. Lui analyzed the feedback from his viewers and understood he should upload more “Let’s Play” videos on the “Red Dead Redemption” game. He started posting videos regularly, and his consistency attracted new viewers, gaining ever more when he decided to make videos on the “Halo” game. He switched to “Halo” for a couple of months, but still uploaded videos on “Red Dead Redemption” not to lose his first wave of his audience. He succeed in the creation of interesting and fun videos, so his popularity increased. He produced “Let’s Play” videos on such games as “Halo”, “Call of Duty” and “The Legend of Zelda”, for old-school viewers who enjoyed his passionate attitude to this game. Lui was noticed by other gamers and YouTubers, and they wanted to collaborate with him to exchange the audience, and increase the number of subscribers.
GTA 5 period
In October 2013 Lui began uploading new videos on the “Grand Theft Auto V” game. His first “Let’s Play” video was entitled “GTA 5 Online Motorcycle Race: Art to Art – Monster Mae”, and has gained almost 300,000. As soon as he included this game in the list of the games he plays, he increased the number of his viewers enormously. He decided to add something special in his GTA 5 videos and started commented on them with a squeaky voice, imitating a small child playing the game. He also made fun of other players, as they thought they were playing with a kid, however, he made his fans feel rather nervous when he fell off the radar for almost half a year, not posting anything on his YouTube channel. His fans were really worried, and even thought that he’d died. Then Lui made an impressive comeback, and proceeded uploading new videos as if nothing had happened, and went on doing that until 2017.
After he uploaded his last video – “Late Night Pokémon GO with Lui” which now has over 1.5 million views – he just stopped posting new videos. He recently posted a selfie on his Instagram account, and his fans flooded the comments under the photo, asking Lui to come back to YouTube. His most popular videos are “GTA 5 Online Heists – All Heist Vehicles Unlocked (Valkyrie, Savage and Hydra Jet)” which has over 14 million views; “GTA 5 Online Squeaker Squad 10 – Playing House Party” which was viewed over 12 million times; and “GTA 5 Online Lui Calibre vs H2O Delirious – Round 2” which has over 10 million views. As one can see, sticking to GTA 5 was one of the most important decisions Lui has ever made, since the videos on this game still support the high numbers of views on Lui’s channel, though he hasn’t been posting anything new for over two years.

Lui has collaborated with various popular YouTubers such as Mini Ladd (who has over 5.6 million subscribers on his YouTube channel), I AM WILDCAT (whose YouTube channel attracted over 6.8 million followers) and several members of the VanossGaming clan such as Evan Fong, the channel and clan’s founder.

Lui was once in a relationship with Jonna Mae, also known as MissesMae and another YouTuber, who has almost 400,000 subscribers on her channel. Their relationship started in 2013, and Lui appeared in many of Jonna’s videos including a Q&A video and funny challenge videos. However, they eventually broke up in June 2015, and announced it with a video entitled “A Message From Lui Calibre – The Break Up”. Lui joked that he made Jonna a star, and that his fans could unfollow her channel since they were not going out anymore. After the breakup, Lui started dating Emily Rexz, aka Emily Leon, a model, gamer and cosplayer.
