Even before she started streaming on Twitch in 2017, QuarterJade aka Jodi, who asked not to share her last name citing privacy concerns, had watched OTV videos in her college library. “I had known of [OTV] but mostly I was following a lot of the girls,” she recalls. “I knew of Lily. I knew of Imane, and I would watch their streams … And then I remember the announcement of, ‘Oh my god, we’re OTV!'” As her channel quickly blossomed, Jodi found herself running in the same circles and gaming in the same lobbies as many of OTV’s members. Once Sydeon, who’s also from the Seattle area (fun fact: Jodi’s ex introduced them. The friendship has lasted longer than the relationship), decided to move to LA to pursue modeling and streaming, the now-inseparable pair became more enmeshed with the OTV crew. So when the opportunity came for Jodi and Syd to join an organization, it made sense for them to join OTV, even though orgs like 100 Thieves and NRG were sniffing around. “There’s a lot of orgs out there that probably would have given us an offer, but those are just money salary offers,” Jodi says. “This is a passion project.” The rest is in your watched history.
