TrainWrecksTV Streamer Bio

Who is TrainWrecksTV?

Tyler Faraz Niknam, known as TrainWrecksTV, was born in Scottsdale, Arizona. He started streaming on Twitch in 2015, where he would play video games and stream IRL content. He debuted “Scuffed Podcast” in 2019, his podcast where he and other streamers discuss various topics. Scuffed Podcast has also become a platform to raise thousands of dollars for charity.

TrainWrecksTV became even more popular when he started playing Among Us in 2020, gaining many fans for his style of play. He even won an Among Us tournament, taking home $5,000 as a prize.

Eventually, TrainWrecksTV gained notoriety for a number of reasons – first for receiving a five-day Twitch ban for a misogynistic rant and second, for his gambling streams. He eventually moved to Canada so he could continue his gambling streams, as he was running into some legal troubles in the US.
