Addison Rae & Bryce Hall fuel dating rumors with flirty TikTok

TikTok stars Addison Rae and Bryce Hall officially called their relationship quits in August, but it looks like this on-again, off-again couple might be getting back together, as hinted at by a particularly flirty TikTok they filmed.

Bryce Hall and Addison Rae — popularly referred to by shippers as “Braddison” — began an undercover romance last year, after the two began to appear in each other’s TikToks and other social media posts.

Despite their apparent closeness, they never confirmed nor denied their relationship until summer of this year, giving conflicting answers. According to Bryce, they were merely “testing the waters,” but Rae was adamant that they were not seeing each other, at all.

The two broke up shortly thereafter, settling things “off social media,” as told by a humorous photo they posted to Twitter. However, they may have gotten back together — at least, fans are speculating as much, thanks to a recent TikTok they uploaded.

On October 19, Addison and Bryce appeared in a new video, where they danced together to Redfoo’s ‘New Thang,’ the choreography for which was just flirty enough to spark new dating rumors among their fanbase.

That’s not all; the two even completed a workout circuit together during Addison’s new YouTube video (which, of course, included a few TikTok dances in the fitness montage that ensued).

Hall even left a cheeky comment on the video, writing, “I like your workout routine.”

Needless to say, fans are more than ready to dub them a couple once again — a theory that celebrity photographer Kevin Wong is also convinced of, noting that they have been going out to grab dinner recently (as well as leaving together).

However, there are quite a few viewers who are asking fans to stay out of their relationship, with many finding a parallel between “Braddison” and Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson’s own not-relationship.

“Why can’t friends hang out?” one user said of the situation. “Okay, I get that Addison and Bryce are exes, but why can’t they be friends and hang out? They made up, they’re cool, and they hang out!”

Needless to say, it seems like “Braddison” is confusing as ever — and there’s no telling if they’ll ever confirm whatever they’ve got going on to their fans.


Streamer accidentally leaks how much money Twitch Bounties can reward

Answering a question many have been curious about, a Twitch streamer has leaked the amount of money that high-profile creators can make from their Twitch Bounty Board.

Twitch Bounties present the platform’s in-app way for streamers to earn sponsorship deal money without any agents or third-party communication. Launched back in 2018, the offering allows streamers to partner with sponsors and promote their product in different ways, with maximum payouts that vary depending on concurrent viewership and streamer profile.

Ludwig ‘ludwig’ Ahren has roots in Super Smash Bros. Melee playing and commentating, but is better known to many as a Twitch streamer and general content creator. He has over 800,000 followers on Twitch and, per TwitchMetrics, boasts the third-most-watched “Just Chatting” channel on the platform. 

As such, ludwig is expected to earn more than the average streamer for his sponsorship opportunities. But, he’s leaked his Mountain Dew Game Fuel Twitch Bounty partnership and now fans and aspiring creators alike can put a money figure, in the thousands, to the nebulous sponsorship system.

While working through his Game Fuel can, ludwig accidentally leaves his stream on a screen that shares his Twitch Bounty dashboard. The opportunity’s requirements include playing Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and, more importantly, discussing Game Fuel’s “talking points” during the session.

While those talking points can’t be seen, viewers can see just how much ludwig can make from the maximum payout for this Bounty: $7,202.

That payout is also nestled alongside hyperlinked “terms,” suggesting that there are nuances to the possible tiers of payment a streamer can earn for their partnerships. As has been mentioned in the past, these are likely tied to concurrent viewership and the like, which tally a brand’s overall reach for the advertisement opportunity.

Owned by PepsiCo, Mountain Dew is no stranger to big investments. The brand has already partnered with the gaming world, infamously thanks to some Call of Duty League commercials, and appears willing to double down on that audience.

This is proven by streamers who aren’t specialized in Call of Duty, like ludwig, getting up to $7,202 for Game Fuel Twitch Bounties. If that’s the case, then one has to imagine that others must also be cashing in similar deposits from their product placement opportunities.
