100 Thieves content creator Jack ‘CouRageJD’ Dunlop just crossed an impressive milestone months after his switch to YouTube Gaming.

CouRage made the difficult choice of leaving his dedicated audience behind on Twitch and joining the greener pasture on YouTube back in 2019.

It wasn’t a complete rebuild, however, as he still had a sizable viewerbase on YouTube already that he could capitalize on. Despite the majority of his content on the platform being Twitch highlights before his move, he still had a dedicated audience.

CouRage has some very popular friends.

On January 27, just a few months after his announcement, 100 Thieves revealed CouRage crossed the two million subscriber count on YouTube in a congratulatory tweet.

The CouRageous are now 2 million strong on YouTube,” said the organization. “Congratulations CouRageJD on creating such a positive and dedicated community. The takeover continues.”

While he’s still quite a way out from catching PewDiePie as the top YouTuber, this milestone is no small feat as very few make it this far.

CouRage made the leap to YouTube in November 2019 and hasn’t looked back. In fact, he ended up being the first major streamer to go from Twitch to YouTube exclusively.

Although it happened at a much later date, his fellow 100 Thieves content creator Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter also joined him. These might have appeared to be surprising moves when they happened, but things become a lot clearer when you look at the ties 100 Thieves CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag has with YouTube, notably the head of gaming Ryan ‘Fwiz’ Wyatt.

For the time being, there are no other plans for other 100 Thieves creators to move over to YouTube, but it wouldn’t be strange to see that happen at some point.

If CouRage is able to keep his hot streak going, then there should be no reason we won’t be seeing him cross his next major milestone in the very near future.

Borat set for first-ever Twitch stream alongside DrLupo: how to watch

Borat is one of the most iconic characters in the world, and now the Kazakh journalist is set to make his first appearance on Twitch tomorrow where he will ‘face off’ against DrLupo; here’s how to watch.

Borat is more than a national treasure to Kazakhstan. He’s a global icon and one of the funniest characters in the world.

Sacha Baron Cohen first slipped into the Borat persona back in the nineties. But although he appeared in several hilarious skits and cameos, he didn’t explode in popularity until 2006, when the feature-film ‘Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan’ released worldwide.

For those who haven’t seen it, it’s a mockumentary that revolves around unscripted real-life interactions. Sacha Baron Cohen pretends to be Borat, a journalist from Kazakhstan. He travels around the US to learn more about their culture.

But he purposefully presses their buttons and puts them in hilarious situations. He winds up people from all walks of life, which sometimes lands him in hot water.

Borat debuts the infamous ‘mankini’ at 2006 Cannes Film Festival.

Fortunately, we’re lucky enough to experience it all over again with the imminent release of the sequel, ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.’

Seth Rogen claims he has already seen it around six times and said he “can’t wait to watch it a seventh.” He described it as “crazy and wonderful” and believes it has “a few of the funniest scenes [he’s] ever seen in a movie.”

But that’s not all. To promote the movie, Twitch announced that Borat will make his first-ever appearance on their platform.

“For the first time ever, Kazakhstan’s biggest gamer will go live on Twitch,” the Amazon-owned platform announced on Oct. 20. “Very nice.” The best part is, he will ‘face off’ against DrLupo “in a battle for global supremacy.”

The stream goes live on October 20 at 3 pm PT. If you want to know where and how you can watch it, we’ve got you covered.

How to watch Borat stream on Twitch

  • First, you’ll obviously need to wait until the time is right. However, it’s a good idea to tune in a little earlier as most streamers kick things off with a ten-minute countdown.
  • Then, all you need to do is tune in to DrLupo’s Twitch channel, which can be found here.
  • From that point onwards, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

There has been no official word on what games they’ll play. DrLupo has been dabbling in a bit of everything lately, from 7 Days To Die and Escape From Tarkov to Genshin Impact. Maybe even a bit of Among Us might be on the cards.

Of course, it’ll depend on what games Borat has available. For all we know, he might be an absolute machine on Call of Duty: Warzone or League of Legends. But we’re not counting on it.

Either way, the stream is going to be a blast, and we can’t wait until it goes live.
