Fist of all, it blows my mind that professional gamer is not only a real job, but an extremely lucrative one at that.  The top earning pro-gamer in the world, Carlos “Ocelot” Rodriguez, brings home an impressive annual salary of $820,000!  Much further down in the rankings is Douglas “FaZe Censor” Martin.  FaZe is a Call of Duty player, and he is currently ranked #1326 in the world.  According to esportsearnings.com, he has earned $54,987.30 since 2011 playing the military-style first person shooter in 35 tournaments around the world.  Mr. Martin has decided it's time to get serious if he wants to make serious money in the gaming world.  To further that end, he is removing distractions from his life to focus on the game - including dumping his girlfriend.

Doug's girlfriend also has a nickname - the sexiest weather-girl in the world.  In addition to being a model, Yanet Garcia is a 26 television weather forecaster for Televisa Monterry in Mexico, and her Instagram is as hot as the weather she talks about.  According to the New York Post, the split was amicable and the ex-couple are still social media friends.

I just wanted to let you know in case you wanted to call your mom and tell her she was wrong about video games.
