The Try Guys, an American media company and online entertainment collective, produce videos for their YouTube channel. Keith Habersberger, Zach Kornfeld, Eugene Lee Yang, and Ned Fulmer were the organization’s founding members.
The Try Guys are renowned for testing numerous things, such as shaving their legs, parenting, and donning women’s underwear.
The Try Guys was founded by the four men when they were employed by BuzzFeed, and in 2018, they established their own business, 2nd Try LLC.
Since then, they have grown their business to employ more than twenty people, appeared on a Food Network program, and written a book titled ‘The Hidden Power of F*cking Up.’
In Pflugerville, Texas, Korean immigrants Jae Yang and Min-young Lee gave birth to Eugene Lee Yang. With a B.A. in Cinema Production, Yang earned her degree from the University of Southern California.
He has helped with The Trevor Project and frequently attends LGBT pride celebrations. In the “I’m Gay” YouTube video, Yang came out on June 15, 2019. He revealed that he had been seeing Matthew McLean for a long time in 2019.
Did Eugene leave the Try Guys?
Eugene did leave the Try Guys; he is working on several projects and doesn’t want to make the Try Guys the center of his attention. He is one of just three men alive, and he only appears on the channel once every three months for two seconds before disappearing again.
Keith, who is in charge of a musical, and Zach, who suffers from chronic pain, are left to run the program.
Last week, Fulmer claimed in a statement shared on his Twitter and Instagram accounts that he “lost focus and had a consensual workplace relationship.”
Early life and education
Yang was born and raised in Pflugerville, Texas, the only child of South Korean immigrants Min-yeong Lee and Jae-hong Yang. After completing a 23andMe DNA test, he learned that, besides his predominantly Korean heritage, he also had some Chinese and Japanese ancestors. His sister’s number two.
Yang’s family was one of the few Asian Americans in their Pflugerville neighborhood when Yang was growing up.
He experienced bullying because of his appearance and battled issues with body image and low self-esteem because, in his own words, no one else looked like him.
Early on, his sister encouraged him to lose his Texas accent after warning him that he might have trouble getting into Ivy League colleges.
When he first started watching movies, he expressed skepticism, noting that his concerns about achieving mainstream acceptability resulted from the underrepresentation of Asian Americans in movies and his identity as a queer man.
His career in Try Guys
The strong response to some of his earlier pieces, especially for their distinctive honesty and dependability, inspired him to create more daring skits, such as The Try Guys, which was published by Buzzfeed in 2014 and starred Ned Fulmer (a former Try Guy), Keith Habersberger, and Zach Kornfeld.
The program features societal commentary and comedic scenes of males experiencing labor pains and a doctor’s office prostate cancer checkup.
Due to their limited experience being talented, the cast was originally apprehensive to walk out from behind the camera. Still, after receiving great feedback, they made videos for the program.
Yang quickly gained notoriety on social media when he accepted tasks like “Guys Try Ladies’ Underwear For The First Time” from the first season. The New York Times said he was The Try Guys’ breakout star.
He and the other members of the Try Guys cast announced their departure from BuzzFeed on June 16, 2018, and the establishment of 2nd Try LLC, a business they own and run.
The 2nd Try LLC acquired all rights to the The Try Guys name. Yang was The Try Guy who left Buzzfeed first since his contract expired before the others’.
The Hidden Power of F*cking Up, a book by The Try Guys that was released on June 18, 2019, and quickly rose to the top of the New York Times bestseller list, was announced for publication on May 4, 2019.
The Try Guys also revealed their next tour, which had an “80s rock band theme,” and their podcast, the “Try-Pod,” in the same video.
The 2020 Joe Biden presidential campaign received the Try Guys’ support in October.
Co-star of Try Guys Ned Fulmer was exposed to a cheating scandal in September 2022 involving Try Guys staffer Alexandria Herring.
Ned’s departure from The Try Guys was swiftly announced. On October 3, The Try Guys published a video describing the circumstances.
