After wrapping up the third season of In Control With Kelsey, in December 2018, Impicciche released a video titled, Single Girl Tries the 100 Baby Challenge in The Sims 4, where she tried to make a knock-off version of herself get impregnated 100 times in The Sims while trying to raise 100 children. The video went no. 1 trending on YouTube, as well as the episodes that followed and created a huge demand for fans, who requested for more episodes in a week. On February 5, 2019, Impicciche released an announcement about the show's first spin-off, Remodels Her Children's Home, as well as a statement on Twitter saying she and her team can only do one episode at a time. Since then, from Part 6, show started to become regular on BuzzFeed Multiplayer every Saturday at 11:00 AM EST.

In March 2019, Impicciche received YouTube's The Silver Creator Award for surpassing 100,000 subscribers. In July 2019, she hosted the 2019 VidCon for BuzzFeed. After producing and hosting the hit show for one year straight, she decided to conclude the first season and take a break.

2020: The Sims Spark'd and continuing the baby challenge

According to Impicciche in a February 2020 interview by TheGamer about the series, she was anxious at the start because she was never the main character of any BuzzFeed video, as she would usually be with other people. Furthermore, she talked about one of the most surprising things for her about the series:[3]

Chelsea preparing garden salad

The fandom. I love fandoms; I'm a very passionate nerd, and I'm a part of a ton of fandoms. It's interesting to me in thinking about fandoms on YouTube, because it's kind of difficult. It was so cool because I accidentally cultivated a fandom. Certain things that I just did out of necessity meant to a lot to people. Like the garden salads - like that didn’t mean anything to me, it was just the cheapest [meal option] that would keep my character healthy. Because in The Sims, characters tend to gain weight, especially when you're getting pregnant that often. And I knew that, so I thought, "I’ll just feed [Chelsea] a garden salad so the food doesn’t [add] to that." And that’s why I did that. And everyone just thought I was weirdly obsessed with them. It was all part of logical thinking, but I didn’t explain it. There’s a lot of things [that fans have latched onto] - like I have yellow chairs in my home. It’s interesting how so many little things that I didn’t even put that much effort or thought into really struck people and made people fall in love with [the series]. It was really gratifying to watch it unfold and see all the inside jokes.

In July 2020, she became a judge in a The Sims reality television show The Sims Spark'd, where players compete in creating stories in The Sims 4 for $100,000. On November 19, 2020, Impicciche won Streamer Raised Charity Funds at The GameHERS awards.

Trivia

Kelsey wearing Gryffindor robes

  • Kelsey's fans are called "Speedsters," derived from her tagline and former Instagram username, "dangerousatanyspeed."
  • Kelsey thinks "babies are ugly and terrifying when they're first born because they just look like bread piles of skin."[5]
  • Kelsey cries over sad videos of dogs more than she cries over sad videos of humans.[5]
  • Kelsey is a Potterhead. On her vlogs, she said her Hogwarts House is Gryffindor.
  • In Shane and Ryan Try to Kill the Try Guys, Kelsey said she went to Catholic school.
  • In Part 12, Kelsey named one of Chelsea's kids "Flynn" because the name suggestion reminded her of Flynn Rider from Disney's Tangled (2010). Incidentally, in September 2019, Kelsey made a cover of I See the Light on YouTube with her friend.[6]
  • According to Jared Nunn's notes in Part 18, Kelsey "was a musical theatre dork."
  • In Part 30, Kelsey said her mom forgot her name and called her "Chelsea" when she was born.
  • In Part 30, Kelsey wanted Kasey's hair to be blonde because she does not want the matriarch to look just like her mom. Consequently, fans had divided opinions on Kasey's hair. Some wanted Kasey's style to be able to be set apart from Chelsea's, while some wanted Kasey to look just like the first matriarch. The backlash in the comments went on for a few weeks because most videos are pre-planned for two to three episodes ahead. Kelsey addressed this on one of her vlogs, saying her, being a split-image of her Sim, is one of the major factors that sets the series apart from other 100 Baby Challenge let's plays. Eventually, Kelsey decided to switch Kasey's hair from time to time, making Kasey the matriarch who underwent the most amount of hairstyle changes. On March 11, 2020, Kelsey came out with a new red hair color. Consequently, Kasey became a redhead for Season 2 as well.
  • Being part of multiple fandoms, Kelsey is also a Swiftie.
    • After reaching 22 children, for the cold open of Part 17, Kelsey said, "Oh my gosh! I don't know about you, but Chelsea's feeling 22 — children," as a reference to the song 22, the fourth official single of Taylor Swift's fourth studio album Red (2012).

      Kelsey's Instagram stories during the rollout of Swift's seventh and eighth studio albums, Lover (2019) and folklore (2020), respectively

    • In Part 31, she subtly snuck in two Taylor Swift references. When Tegan aged up, she said "...we are not out of the woods yet..." as a reference to Out of the Woods, the first promotional single off Swift's fifth studio album 1989 (2014). On the other hand, when all her toddlers were angry and starving, she exclaimed, "You need to calm down!" before smirking slightly. Incidentally, this is a reference to You Need to Calm Down, the second official single off Swift's seventh studio album Lover (2019), and Swift's latest single by the time the episode was being filmed.
    • In Fights in a Wizard Duel, Kelsey made a reference to Look What You Made Me Do, the lead single of Swift's sixth studio album, reputation (2017), saying, "I'm sorry. The old Barbie can't come to the phone right now. Why? 'Cause she's dead!" after Barbie Roberts tried a new outfit.

  • In Part 40, Kelsey mentioned her favorite author is Neil Geiman.
  • In her vlog titled, DO I WANT TO BE SINGLE?, Kelsey made a reference to My Type, a song by American rapper Saweetie, singing, "That's my type! That's my type!" after someone asked about her ideal type of person. Kelsey said she likes someone who is communicative, nerdy, and fun.
  • In Chelsea Goes to University, Kelsey said she was a drama major in college.
  • In one of Kelsey's Eco Lifestyle streams[7] on Twitch, someone suggested Willow Impiccishmay to become the love interest of the current character, Liam England, to which Kelsey refused because it weirds her out.[8]
  • The fans have been sharing their own 100 Baby Challenge on Kelsey's Instagram, in which they make the Impiccishmay children either the baby daddies or matriarchs. Kelsey said she not only felt "very proud [of her children], but also very appalled."[8]

    Kelsey and her alter ego, Chelsea Impiccishmay, in an Episode let's play

  • In her second Ooblets Twitch stream, one of the subscribers asked her favorite tracks from Swift's eighth studio album folklore (2020). She mentioned mirrorball, august, and betty.
  • In Part 13, while on a date with Gavin McIntosh, Kelsey asked the fans to call her if there is a real-life Gavin. Incidentally, in August 2020, Kelsey collaborated on a The Sims 4 let's play with internet celebrity Doctor Mike, a real-life Gavin.
  • In her let's play on the mobile game Episode, after naming her character "Chelsea," Kelsey said "Chelsea" in general is always the name of her alter-ego on which she takes many forms. Additionally, the description of the video implied that the character's full name is "Chelsea Impiccishmay."
  • Kelsey said Harry Impiccishmay is the child who gave her the most trouble in the series, since he passed away early.[9] Moreover, her favorite pairs of twins are Niya & Natalie and Willow & Ginny while her favorite baby-daddy is Craig Slater.[10] Furthermore, Chelsea is her favorite matriarch. However, she is hoping that by the end of the series, Kelly will be her favorite.[9]

    Kelsey naming the Impiccishmay children quickly off the top of her head

  • It takes Kelsey about three hours to film one episode — time spent in production setup along with 15 minutes of episode introduction and two hours of game time.[9] Additionally, she records about 10 takes in making the episode introduction.[10]
  • Kelsey prefers to pick the name suggestions with one or two names at most.[10]
  • Kelsey would never name one of her babies "Kelsey" because it would be weird for her.[10]
  • Kelsey prefers Maxis match over alpha CC.[10]
  • The Sims 3 is Kelsey's least favorite The Sims game not only because "the characters look gross" but also because it could not run on her laptop properly.[10]
