He moved to New Jersey in 4th grade and met JeromeASF (Jerome) and became friends. They record videos (specially Hunger Games) very frequently. It got to the point where fans created a shipping between the two: Merome or ASFCanadian. Mitch and Jerome often joke and poke fun at it. (Ex. In the "City Of Love", where Mitch used a Merome drawing as part of the thumbnail) Recently, though, they've also used the term as a way to say they are a team ("You don't mess with Merome!" became a quote in their Pixelmon series, whenever they pranked Quentin ((HuskyMudkipz)) or Ian ((Ssundee))). The managed to trend #Merome during the Livestream Launch Party for The Nexus server, along with #TheNexusMC.

Started YouTube in: March 3, 2010 at the age of 16.
His username originates from him being born in Canada (canadian) and his upbringing in Barbados (Bajan). 
He calls his fans "doods".
He had a channel before creating "TheBajanCanadian", but his parents forced him to close it, as they thought it contained inappropriate content, like mocking "2 Girls, 1 Cup."

Mitch started to get acknowledged in the YouTube community when he, Jerome and Matt (Nooch) started AwesomeSauceFilms: a general gaming channel where they centered around Call of Duty. They ended up making videos for Machinema for over 2 years.
However, on December 2012, the group stopped producing ASF videos, as they had grown tired of CoD. When his channel started to turn Minecraft-centered, he got a lot of criticism and hate from older fans that is still going on. (Many of the comment sections in his videos are spammed with #ReviveASF)

Mitch got recognized as a Minecraft YouTuber through his Minecraft: Hunger Games. The series has 295+ episodes (as of 12/2/13), and its anniversary is November 1st,. It is still the staple of his channel.
He's praised as one of the best PvPers in YouTube, and he has received the title "King of Hunger Games (Deans)" by fans.

Before episode 6 of HG, Mitch wore a Winnie The Pooh skin, as his first experience with gaming had been with Winnie the Pooh in the Hundred Acre Wood. He swapped it for his current skin, afraid of getting a copyright strike.

Mitch has had 2 Minecraft servers: The Fridge (closed) and The Nexus (which he co-owns with Jerome.)

Benja started to join other YouTubers in recording sessions, such as SkyDoesMinecraft. He became a part of Team Crafted, along with Jerome, and became friends with the members of the group (Deadlox, MinecraftUniverse, HuskyMudkipz, Ssundee, SkyDoesMinecraft, etc).

Several of his videos have 'slang', generated from his love for food. "Get your food and drank on" is a popular phrase of his, for example. Many of his Instagram photos have food in them.

Mitch has his own way of calling different items in Minecraft (similar to Sky's way of calling Gold "Butter"):

Diamond Axe - Betty
Gold - Chicken Nugget Budder
Cooked fish - Vile Creature
Chestplate - Boob(plate)
Boots - Booties/Boots with the fur
Leather Boots - Boots with the fur
Chainmail - Sexy Lingerie
Lapis Lazuli - Blue sh*t/Lapis Lapoopie/Blue poop
Iron Axe - Fredrick
Rotten Flesh: Wet noodle
