Bryce Hall tests if he really is the ‘TikTok version of Jake Paul’

TikTok star and Sway House member Bryce Hall is known for his wild, partying ways — so much so that people are comparing him to YouTuber Jake Paul, an accusation that he decided to put to the test in a recent vlog.

Bryce Hall has become the unintentional poster child for reckless behavior on social media, receiving ample backlash for throwing massive house parties despite the City of Los Angeles’ social distancing orders.

Hall was later charged with breaking these ordinances and had the electricity and water shut off at the Sway House over the ordeal, and could even face potential jail time.

However, Hall’s scenario echoes all too similar to that of fellow influencer Jake Paul, who has likewise thrown a few parties of his own despite the current health crisis — and an ongoing investigation from the FBI.

Thus, it comes as little surprise that viewers are drawing an obvious parallel between the two stars, dubbing Bryce Hall the unofficial “Jake Paul of TikTok.”

Hall decided to test out these claims on his own and made the trek to Paul’s Team 10 mansion, where the two underwent a mock “test” to compare and contrast their various scandals.

The ensuing questions included such queries as, “Have more than five people told you to your face that you might be a sociopath?” “Have you been canceled for doing irresponsible actions more than five times?” and “Do either one of you have more than one criminal charge pending against you?”

The priceless questions ended in a not-so-surprising conclusion: That Bryce Hall is, in fact, the Jake Paul of TikTok, a result that he seemed to celebrate.

Dubbing himself “Bryce Paul” (we have to admit — it has a nice ring to it), it seems that he and Jake are now unofficially-officially “bros” — something that Jake’s brother Logan also jokingly brought up in a humorous segment during his feature on the ‘imPaulsive’ podcast in July.

Considering their shared penchant for parties, wild stunts and other various antics, Bryce is a welcome presence in the Paul brother’s content — even if he’s decided to temporarily suspend his party-hard lifestyle.

Apex Legends streamer Dizzy returns from hiatus to play Valorant

Coby ‘Dizzy’ Meadows practically took over Apex Legends esports before moving to streaming, and then leaving social media entirely in July. Now he’s back, and ready to take on a whole new challenge: Valorant.

Dizzy was known for his stellar Apex Legends play, with thousands of viewers heading to his stream or whatever pro event he was playing in to watch him put on a show. He swept through basically everyone he came across in matches, leaving no doubt he was one of the best players around

Then, in July 2020 he disappeared from the internet entirely, after stepping back from Apex esports in 2019 to focus on streaming the game. Now, after roughly six months, Dizzy has announced his return and the latest game he’ll attempt to master.

EXP Pro-Am Apex Legends ExhibitionDizzy was one of the most well-known Apex pros since release, even winning the very first Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge.

In a Twitlonger announcing his return on January 18, dizzy said he was ready to get back to streaming and would be playing mostly Valorant this time around instead of Apex. Meadows also revealed that the passing of well-known WoW streamer and good friend Byron ‘reckful’ Bernstein in July, 2020, was one of the big reasons he took his break.

“I felt like I wasn’t performing and felt like I just let everyone down with my constant breaks and inconsistent play. I felt I had just burnt myself out,” the streamer said in a Twitlonger. “Around the time of Byron’s passing I was thinking about him the night before and waking up the next morning to the news, I was heartbroken. I fell into a depressed state and just needed some time to myself. I needed a hiatus for my mental health.”

“I’ve been slowly recovering and I feel like I’m ready to come back to streaming and plan on playing mainly Valorant,” dizzy continued. “I’ve also decided I’m going to start streaming on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. I look forward to being back. I missed you guys.”

If you want to catch dizzy in person, head over to his Twitch channel at 4 PM EST on Monday, January 18, where he’ll be streaming for the first time in over half a year, and welcome him back.

The loss of Reckful was definitely a hard time, not just for the WoW community but for Twitch as whole, and just add on the kind of year that 2020 seemed to be for everyone else, and we can understand why dizzy took some time off. It’s good to have him back though, and we can’t wait to see him pick up where he left off.
