Ben Edgar is one of the Yogscast Administrators. He was first seen by Yognau(gh)ts in Kim's YOGSKIM Special! Simon's Present video where she dressed up as Mandrew. Ben was seen in the background, and he became known on Reddit and Tumblr as "Corgi Crasher". Ben says that his job deals with the "stats and things".
He has since become one of the most familiar Yogs, appearing in most main channel videos particularly Grand Theft Auto V and Garry's Mod, as well as participating in several seasons of Civilization V/VI. Ben has also begun playing old school strategy games with Lewis on Twitch, with the streams usually titled 'Lewis and Ben Save the World', as well as on the Civilization channel. He now shares the channel "Lewis and Ben Save the World" with Lewis consisting of playthroughs of modded XCOM.
Ben is a part of the paint lickers BATTLEBOYS sporadic series of streams as well, where himself along with Lewis, Alex and Tom paint different Warhammer and Warhammer 40K models. It is also worth noting that the unofficial Jerkoff streams are with Tom and Ben where they usually play Total War: Warhammer 2. These streams between Tom and Ben are also used as a platform to plan their prospective coup of the Yogscast.
