BdoubleO100, known simply as BdoubleO, or his personal name John, is an American Let's Play commentator, a former member of Mindcrack, and an active member of Hermitcraft. He was invited to join the Mindcrack Server by Guude in September 2011. On 3 April 2015, it was announced BdoubleO would be parting ways with Mindcrack due to legal changes within the brand.[2] In his words, Bdubs "was told that [he] was not allowed to be an official member anymore."[3] He joined Hermitcraft at the start of Season 5 in April 2017.


BdoubleO has a younger brother Joe, known as Pungence, who also does YouTube full time,[4] and a younger sister Abigail "Abbye", a cosmetologist.[5]

Since mid-2012, BdoubleO has done YouTube full time.[6] Bdubs previously worked as a general contractor for 8 years in a family-run business.[7]

On 5 December 2013, BdoubleO and his wife Nicole announced they were expecting their first child,[8] later revealing the sex to be female.[9] Ariana Calliste was born on 16 July 2014,[10] weighing 6lb7oz.[11][12] BdoubleO describes the birth of his daughter as "the best thing that's ever happened to [him]."[13]

On 31 October 2015, Nicole surprised BdoubleO with the announcement of their second child.[14] Her name was revealed to be Eden in a 15 May 2016 vlog.[15] Eden was born on 21 May 2016 at 5:30AM.[16] Eden shares a birthday with BdoubleO's sister.[17]

In mid-2017, BdoubleO announced he was expecting his third daughter, Ivy Rose. Unfortunately, however, medical checks before the scheduled birth revealed that Ivy Rose would be born critically underweight and with a heart defect[18] as a result of trisomy 13.[19] Ivy Rose was born 12 January 2018 at 2am, and passed away at 9pm the same day.[20] BdoubleO went on a year-long hiatus afterwards.

Let's Play[edit]

In "Minecraft Peep Show," BdoubleO tries out the new features of upcoming versions of Minecraft in survival single player. He has suspended the series since the Mindcrack server started using snapshots of Minecraft.[citation needed]

Upon the birth of his daughter, BdoubleO began using his secondary channel "BdoubleOLIVE" as a vlogging channel, specifically for updates about his daughter.[21]

BdoubleO's popular "Building with BdoubleO" survival singleplayer series returned on 24 November 2014 shortly after hitting 1,000,000 YouTube subscribers.[22] During the return episode of the series, Bdubs announced a tertiary YouTube channel "BDUBSwithCHEESE". The channel is a pay-to-subscribe channel that will allow subscribed users to no longer see advertisements on his main channel, and will have access to behind-the-scenes footage of Bdubs' video creation.[23]

Music from Ronald Jenkees[edit]

This list may be incomplete

BdoubleO is a fan of popular musician Ronald Jenkees. He has close contact with Jenkees and was allowed to play many of Jenkees' music in his videos. Music played include:

Jenkees himself was pleased that BdoubleO has exposed many people to his music.[24] BdoubleO praises and acknowledges Jenkees' musical talent many times in his videos.[25]


BdoubleO was a fan of Guude's Mindcrack series during its second season. He messaged Guude one day to ask if he could make some intro music for him, though Guude didn't replied as he was flooded with messages. BdoubleO subsequently donated to Guude[26] and reminded him of the offer.[27] After a while of corresponding, BdoubleO asked Guude if he was interested in doing Vechs' CTM map "Legendary" together.[28] Their collaborations together were known as "OOG". They went on to play "Nightmare Realm," "Sea of Flame II," Portal 2, and Saints Row: The Third. BdoubleO has produced intro music for several series, including Race for the Wool, Saints Row: The Third, Saints Row IV, Spellbound Caves, Sea of Flames II,[29] Building with BdoubleO, Nightmare Realms, and Portal 2. Much of his music can be downloaded at[30]


BdoubleO joined Mindcrack in September 2011, at the beginning of season 3 of the Mindcrack Server.

On the season 3 map, BdoubleO rebuilt his house at the spawn village and also built a home near Guude in the mountains. Following his love for music, he built the Record Shop and has collected Music Discs to sell there. He has worked on a massive construction project to build the Arena. BdoubleO and generikb teamed up to form the B-Team, which spawned from their actions against Etho. Together they perform comical hijinks around the server.

In Season 4, BdoubleO took the task of building the town hall. The town hall served as the focal point for the new Spawn area on the server. On the server, he resided in his modern house within the vicinity of Spawn. BdoubleO also constructed the nether hub with Etho. This served as the main transportation system on the Mindcrack server. Some of his other builds included docks in the jungle that had a path that lead to a jungle temple that was going to be made into a small adventure map, and an arena he is building with Etho.


BdoubleO appeared as guest on the HermitCraft server on 21 October 2012 during Keralis1's livestream,[31][32] but didn't officially join the server until 5 January 2013. He teamed up with generikb and new members Juicetra, Pungence, and skyzm, in response to Biffa2001's and Xisuma's prank on Generikb. Their first action was to litter Biffa's and Xisuma's bases with giant letter B's.[33] He later issued a build-off challenge to Keralis1,[34] before becoming inactive on the server.

BdoubleO appeared as a guest in HermitCraft UHC 9 in September 2015.

He rejoined the server at the start of HermitCraft 5 in April 2017, forming a team with Etho, Docm77, VintageBeef, named the New Hermit Order (nHo).[35]

He rejoined the server again for HermitCraft 6.[36]

Minecraft skin[edit]

BdoubleO received a Cape for attending MineCon 2011[citation needed] and MineCon 2013.[37][38] Although he attended MineCon 2012, he gave away his cape.[39] In addition to his primary skin, BdoubleO has a Rambo-themed skin created by kurtmac for use in Mindcrack Ultra Hardcore.[40] He had alternated between the two skins at times,[citation needed] before creating a skin in August 2014 that incorporates the designs of both skins, through new customization options added in 1.8.[41]

Previous/Alternate skins[edit]


  • BdoubleO is whitelisted on the "CrewCraft" server: a survival-multiplayer Minecraft server that features popular YouTube personalities. His only involvement on the server was fighting the Wither with Crew members: KYR_SP33DY, JahovazWitniss, MrNobodyEpic, ShadowBeatz, and SideArms.[43] He was most likely invited due to his collaboration with Sp33dy a few months prior.[44][45]
