With their entire lives in front of a camera for all to see, it comes as no surprise that Twitch streamers undergo a intense speculation concerning their love lives – and popular streamer Alinity Divine is no exception to this rule.

In fact, Alinity addressed rumors that she and her moderator were romantically involved, as told during a broadcast on May 3.

Her moderator, ‘Chronic,’ brought in food while Alinity was chatting with her audience, prompting her to invite him over to her stream setup and explain the specifics of their relationship.

Alinity’s response to the dating rumors

“That’s Chronic,” she explained. “That’s the moderator, Chronic, that you guys see in the chat. So many of you like to call – what do they call you?”

“They call me sweetheart,” Chronic jokingly replied, holding Alinity’s Samoyed dog, Luna. “Honeybuns.”

“We’re just friends, guys,” Alinity clarified.

Dating scandals across the internet

This wouldn’t be the first time a Twitch streamer has been accused of romancing another personality, by far; popular streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is often shipped with fellow streamer Fedmyster – a pairing that isn’t going away anytime soon, thanks to her antics during their dual Fortnite steam in late April.

Even major YouTubers aren’t exempt from such speculation, as seen in the drama surrounding Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau, whose online activity stirred a slew of rumors that the two were secretly dating.

Mongeau was caught filming a Snapchat in Paul’s bed in late April, after Paul had admitted to flirting with her at a party in a vlog shortly beforehand.

The purported couple came out in a series of videos shortly thereafter, claiming that they were not romantically involved despite fan speculation, with Mongeau herself appearing to make fun of the rumors.

“I think it’s always fun to poke fun at how crazy the internet can be,” Mongeau said of the matter during her ‘Mukbang’ video with Paul. “They see one Snapchat of me somewhere and they’re like, ‘You’re automatically f*cking and secretly dating and whatever!’”

Whether big or small, many internet personalities undergo scrutiny for their dating lives, causing some stars like KSI to reportedly hide their significant others from the public eye.

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
