YouTube star David Dobrik is one of the net’s top social media celebrities, best known for his viral vlogs featuring his friend group, the “vlog squad” — but despite his crazy hijinks, it seems that he couldn’t handle the heat from a few spicy wings.

Dobrik was invited onto an episode of the popular online show Hot Ones, hosted by Interviewer Sean Evans, who puts a unique spin on his celebrity Q & A sessions with an array of increasingly spicy hot wings.

Having featured such names as Margot Robbie, Pete Davidson, and even Will Ferrell, Dobrik’s YouTube fame found him in the hot seat during a March 12 episode of the series — and he quickly realized he was out of his depth.

David Dobrik is one of YouTube’s biggest vlogging stars, who found himself in the hot seat for an episode of Hot Ones in mid-March.

After admitting to not being able to handle spicy food, the YouTuber powered his way through the entire interview, gulping down glasses of milk and water to stave off the spice as he attempted to answer Evans’ questions.

However, the vlogger finally broke after the segment finished filming, claiming that he needed to find a trash can and asking Evans if he should literally spill his guts.

As if on cue, Dobrik hurled into a nearby trash bin, coming back up with a triumphant “F**k yes!” as if completing a sacred rite of passage.

That wasn’t the craziest moment from his time on the show, though: in fact, the star revealed a slew of unreleased info about his career, including a potential lawsuit from his neighbor.

Dobrik recalled his viral dry foam experiment from winter 2019, which he claimed ruined his backyard and outdoor furniture after exploding out of its canister — but the real drama came after his downstairs neighbor complained that the foam had flown into their property, and even burned his wife while she was relaxing in their hot tub.

“He said a piece of the foam hit his wife and burned her while she was in the hot tub,” Dobrik explained. “Which is impossible, because the second the foam comes out, you can touch it, you can play with it, you can rub it all over your skin. He was trying to get me in trouble.”

Thankfully, the situation presumably never went to court, leaving the YouTuber with a unique story to tell during his eye-watering interview.

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.
