"Trailer" Drake McWhorter is a YouTuber and one of the main Theorists on The Game Theorists. He formerly hosted Crossover, in which he and his artist and co-writer Kenny Landefeld looked for clues connecting all games to a single universe, and Smash History, in which he explained the origins of character movesets in Super Smash Bros.. Because both series have apparently been discontinued, Drake's current status on The Game Theorists is unknown.
Besides working on The Game Theorists, Drake works on two channels of his own. His first personal channel, Trailer Drake, is where he posts gaming reviews, Top 10 lists, rants and vlogs, and his series Unpopular Gaming Opinions. Drake's second channel, Comic Drake, which focuses on comic book popular culture.
Drake is also the first known Theorist to have edited the Game Theorists Wiki. His account is linked here.
Drake McWhorter was born on December 27, 1993 in Fort Worth, Texas. He stated at the 2014 SGC that he loved Nintendo games and that he was a "slacker" in school, often disrespecting his teachers. Throughout his childhood, Drake was the administrator of several role-playing forum websites, such as Pokémon Voyage. Drake has stated that he had "a lot of issues" as a child, having taken it out on members of the site, resulting in his "bad/infamous/notorious" reputation among forum circles. Drake was also a member of his school's marching band.
Drake joined YouTube on March 29, 2006 during his sophomore year. After graduating, he eventually received a job as a video editor for ScrewAttack. Later on, he came across Kenny Landefeld's channel, and watched some of his Let's Draw videos. He gained an interest in Kenny's artistic talent, and contacted him and offered him a partnership. He has stated that afterwards, he saw MatPat's show, Game Theory, and contacted Matthew for a position, to which he agreed.
On December 28, 2013, Drake and Kenny launched the pilot episode of their web series Crossover, in which they explain how all video game worlds are connected. Drake wrote the script and did the research, and Kenny co-wrote the script and created the artwork for the series. Crossover's focus eventually shifted to gaming timelines, and its final episode aired on September 9, 2014, totaling eight episodes. On August 26, 2014, Drake started a new series, Smash History. In it, Drake explains the origins of the movesets of characters in Nintendo's crossover fighting game series Super Smash Bros..
Prior to November 8, 2016, all episodes of Smash History were suddenly set to private. Drake has stated on Twitter the he does not know the reason for this, and he and MatPat were investigating. Since then, he has started to reupload some of the episodes on his channel Trailer Drake, starting with Smash History's first episode, focusing on Mario and Dr. Mario. After an apparent suicide attempt, Drake focused on getting his life "back in order" and has moved more "behind the scenes" on The Game Theorists, confirming that he stills works with MatPat, but currently not as a show host.
- Drake has clinical depression.
