Bryan Le was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. His parents are from Vietnam. RiceGum tries to separate his YouTube life and his personal life so he does not disclose the information about his parents; their names are unknown; he frequently alludes to them as “typical Asian parents”. 
Le has a little sister. He once posted a video about her and was completely freaked out about disgusting the comments under it. He also has a baby brother. 
Ricegum has over 10 million subscribers on YouTube. He is best known for his Call of Duty commentary and the occasional vlog video.
He opened both his YouTube and Twitter account in October of 2012, posting his first video titled "Call of Duty:Mw3 Gameplay LifeStory:BabySitting:RICEGUM." In November of 2012, he announced his partnership with Machinima Inc., a global YouTube network mostly focusing on gaming.
He later found fame in December 2015 when he uploaded a video titled "These Kids Must Be Stopped," where he brought attention to different teenage internet stars for their poor behavior.  This initiated a response from several younger stars including Jacob Sartorius, Hunter Rowland, and Taylor Caniff.  On June 10, 2017, RiceGum dropped another video dissing Jake Paul titled "Its EveryNight Sis" and features his ex-girlfriend, Alissa Violet. 
RiceGum has a large social media presence. On March 24, 2018, he reached the 10 million YouTube subscriber milestone.   He also has 3 million followers on Twitter,  and 5 million followers on Instagram.
