TikTok star and internet celebrity Addison Rae has teased fans over the prospect of a reality TV show starring her and her family. 

The exponential growth of TikTok has launched a new group of internet celebrities into the public eye. One person who has amassed a major following off the back of the Beijing-based social media site is Addison Rae, the 19-year-old American who, at the time of writing, sits at over 42.8 million followers.

She has made her name primarily through dance tutorials, in a similar vein to other TikTok stars like Charli D’Amelio and JoJo Siwa.

Rae has her own merchandise lines already.

Away from dance tutorials, it looks like Rae may be on her way to getting her very own reality TV show, alongside her family.

In response to a recent TikTok, one fan commented that her family “need to create a show I would watch it non-stop”. Rae replied to the comment with a simple emoji of eyes, but many fans took this as a hint that an idea similar is already in development.

To add fuel to the fire, another fan commented that they have a YouTube video idea for Rae, focusing on her family and what they do around making TikTok videos together. In response, Rae commented: “or a whole season?”

Obviously the comments do not act as concrete proof a TV show will be on the way, but many took Rae’s responses as suggestions that something similar is currently in the works.

Whether it would debut on YouTube or TV is also not clear but, off the back of her incredible TikTok popularity, she has amassed over 2 million subscribers on the video sharing platform.

We’ll have to wait and see what, if any, official announcements follow, but we’ll cover them right here on Dexerto.

Twitch streamer confronts DoorDash driver after console war trash talk

Console wars are nothing new to video game enthusiasts. From schoolyard debates to forum threads 500 pages deep, console loyalists have fought tooth and nail since the dawn of time. Now, the battleground has shifted with even DoorDash drivers getting in on the action against customers.

During a Twitch broadcast, streamer Jameskii was playing Minecraft while waiting for DoorDash to deliver his order. Suddenly, he received a text message on his phone.

“Hold on, is my drink here?” he wondered as he grabbed his mobile device. “Oh my God! Oh my God!”

As the streamer stared down at his phone, he could hardly contain his disbelief at the message he received from the driver.

“My food delivery guy just messaged me ‘Xbox is trash as f**k,” he laughed. “I’m not kidding. My f**king DoorDash just messaged me. It says, ‘Hello, DoorDash has arrived with your order’ and the next message is ‘Xbox is trash as f**k.’”

As it turns out, the driver actually tried to call the streamer, but when Jameskii didn’t pick up, he felt the need to trash talk Xbox.

Despite all this confusion and the out of context attack on Microsoft’s console, Jameskii wondered if he should call the driver back.

“Say yeah, PlayStation is better, woo!” his friend suggested as the streamer began to redial the number.

Eventually, someone on the other end picked up. “Alright, what did you say about Xbox?” Jameskii asked point-blank.

After a few moments of silence, the driver doubled down on his earlier comment and shouted, “F**k Xbox!”

The remark had the streamer in stitches and made him burst out laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation.

While console wars have a long history dating beyond even the 90s when Nintendo and Sega duked it out, it’s unlikely that the phenomenon ever reached a point where delivery drivers partake. It just goes to show that we’re living in a strange timeline.
