Jared "ProJared" Knabenbauer is a video game reviewer who is most notable for his "One Minute Reviews," in which he reviews a newly released game in under a minute and gives a rating. On his channel Jared does a multitude of things; such as Pokemon Nuzlocke Challenges, Top Tens, Regular Reviews of new games, and "Pro Reviews," a retro review format in which he goes over everything in the game and gives them a final score (usually using an object of comparison rather than a number score).

Like many reviewers, Jared also has that one game (or series) that he despises, such as PeanutButterGamer hating the MySims Series, and Caddicarus hating Rascal Racers. Jared's most hated series is the Hydlide series, although he has done a review of 3 of the Hydlide games.

The CompletionistEdit

Jared shows up in Episode 78, Illusion of Gaia, after Jirard burned the Heart of Darkness game, telling him that he should keep on reviewing games, even if it gets tough.

He also appears as a cameo in Episode 100 in which he is playing his Gameboy rather than helping Alex and Jimmy free Jirard and Greg.

Jared later guest stars alongside PeanutButterGamer in Episode 148, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, helping Jirard complete the game through the game's multiplayer.


  • Jared grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
  • The first game Jared ever played was Ladybug for the Colecovision.
  • Jared's personal game collection consists of over 20 handhelds and over 30 consoles.
  • Jared used to take part in professional archery.
  • The name "ProJared" originated from Jared one day coming home from work in his now normal black dress pants and blue shirt. He had gone out with friends in that same outfit and one of his friends had asked him "Why you gotta dress pro all the time?" and for some reason, it stuck with Jared.
  • On Game Grumps, a running gag involved members of the channel referring to Jirard and ProJared as one person: ProJirard The Finishist. The two appeared on the Game Grumps spin-off Grumpcade to play Turtles in Time. They were referred to collectively as ProJirard The Finishist during the playthrough.
