American singer-songwriter Ariana Grande has finally followed streamer and former CWL caster Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop on Twitter – much to fans’ amusement.

PC company NZXT noted that Ariana had followed Dunlop on February 15, posting a screenshot as proof of the interaction to their account.

CouRage’s fanbase quickly took note of the development, with even the likes of Jess Blevins (wife of popular Fortnite streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins) getting in on the hype.

Grande finally followed CouRage back on Twitter in February 15 – much to fans’ amusement.

“Ariana literally followed Jack,” she said of Dunlop’s social media success. “THE TEA!”

Dunlop responded to Blevin’s comment with the “🙌” emoji – although he has made no other comment on Grande’s Twitter activity since then.

It’s no secret that CouRage has a major crush on Grande; the streamer openly asked her out on a date via Twitter in November of 2018, which prompted Ninja to swoop in as his wingman in an attempt to grab the singer’s attention.

Fans even went so far as to photoshop the two personalities in vintage wedding pictures, which CouRage retweeted with gusto.

CouRage’s crush on Ariana Grande is so well-known that fans have even photoshopped the two together in fake wedding photos.

The streamer likewise got into a lighthearted beef with former Vine star ‘Dwarf Mamba’ over the singer, after Mamba jokingly asked Grande out by referring to their shared, short statures.

While Grande has yet to reply to any of CouRage’s posts, fans are waiting for further developments with bated breath, with many finding the duo’s interaction incredulous.

Even Twitter Gaming has gotten in on CouRage’s efforts to date Grande in the past; with this latest development, there’s no telling what will happen next.

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

(Topic starts at 35:41)

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

The YouTubers were floored after the rare Pokemon box was fake.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
