Wife is an American Melee player and commentator from Arlington, Virginia who mains Peach. He is one of the two remaining members of Team Ben (along with his friend Husband), one of the premier crews in Maryland in the Golden Age.

He has been competing since January 2004, originally playing Ganondorf, before he made the switch to Peach, and was considered a top Peach player during the Golden Age, as well as one of the top 20 players in the United States. Fitting for their gamertags, he also teamed up with Husband at tournaments, their team being called The Newlyweds. Wife's playstyle employs a blend of the great Peaches before him, Mike G and KrazyJones, and he has a generally solid style of play. He was also probably most famous for his prowess on the matchup against Marth, often being called a "Marth-slayer". He humorously boasted that "no Marth, under any circumstance, would ever pose a threat to him"; despite Marth naturally countering Peach, he has an absurd amount of practice against Husband's Marth. Of the few Marth players to win a set against Wife, Ken is the most prominent.

While Wife largely retired by the end of the Golden Age from competitive play, he has been more prolific with his commentary than his playing in recent years, and he is widely regarded as one of the greatest Smash commentators, with him and Husband having commentated events such as EVO 2015, Apex 2015 and Pound 2016.


Before picking up Peach, Wife originally played Ganondorf. His first tournament was Live Or Die in the Fall of 2003, where he met the team H2YL. Instantly in love with the competitive atmosphere, Wife set out to become a top player. He debuted his Peach at Game Over in January of 2004, where he entered teams but not singles. Soon after, Wife began traveling around the country to every tournament he could, eventually making over a thousand dollars in 2005.

By 2006 Wife had earned himself a spot as one of the best Peaches in the country, and he began competing heavily at Major League Gaming tournaments. He was invited to the playoffs, where he placed 10th overall.

Although no longer competing, Wife still remains as an active member of the Smash scene providing his signature commentary for large tournaments such as GENESIS, Pound 4, Pound V, and MLG Anaheim 2014, EVO 2015, Apex 2015 and Pound 2016. Wife was also a prominent figure in The Smash Brothers, appearing in an interview in every episode.
