DisguisedToast loses $5,000 bet to Twitch viewers after Pokemon fail

Popular Twitch streamer Jeremy ‘DisguisedToast’ Wang lost a sizeable chunk of change after betting fans that he could a Shiny Wooloo in Pokemon Sword and Shield

After months of waiting, Pokemon fans finally got their hands on Sword and Shield on November 15, marking their first steps into the eighth generation. 

Since then, they’ve been on a hunt to catch ‘em all in the new Galar region, which brings a whole new selection of shiny Pokemon – something that’s been a mainstay of the franchise for some time. These are rarer forms of species that are particularly difficult to find in the wild. 

Just like many other trainers, DisguisedToast has been searching for shinies and went as far as betting with his own fans on Twitch that he’d be able to find a shiny Wooloo inside 15 hours. But, it didn’t quite work out as planned.

DisguisedToast is one of the most popular members of Offline TV.

During his November 17 stream, the Offline TV member set out to find the special Wooloo as he ventured into the new Pokemon title. Considering how frequent the Pokemon appears in the Wild Area, with the right amount of time put into the search, he believe it wouldn’t be too hard a task to complete. 

Having found a number of them already, but none shiny, the streamer gave his fans quite a fright around five hours into the broadcast as he encountered a Wooloo. His screen shook as if something special was happening. Yet, when the battle started, it was just a regular one.


As the hours ticked down towards him losing his bet, DisguisedToast kept on his search, running into a countless number of sheep. 

However, before he knew it, the 15-hour time limit was over and he had to pay up on his bet – handing out 1,000 free subscriptions to his channel. While his fan may have celebrated, the streamer’s wallet certainly took a hit as he had to shell out $5,000. 


Now, some viewers may want to repay the streamer for delivering on an enjoyable outcome, but one thing that makes DisguisedToast different on Twitch is that he doesn’t accept donations.

He also recently urged viewers to take their subscriptions and help out smaller broadcasters. But, they’ll probably just keep subbing to him and dropping some fire Wooloo memes instead.

A number of TikTok stars have hit out at paparazzi, asking them to stop “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson after a video of them at the airport was uploaded to YouTube. 

With the success of TikTok around the globe, a number of creators like Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, Addison Rae, and Bryce Hall have become stars thanks to their viral videos. 

However, the fame and popularity that social media brings, fans want to know more. They’re desperate for updates on relationships, where their favorite stars are living, and how they’re getting on away from the TikTok videos. 

Many of TikTok’s stars will conduct interviews with paparazzi and other media outlets on a regular basis, but one has come under fire from TikTokjers for apparently “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s biggest star, and garners the most attention.

Kevin Wong posted a video of Charli and Chase reuniting at LAX. However, it didn’t go down well with some of the pair’s fellow TikTok stars. 

“You’re taking stalking to a new level. Give them some privacy,” Hype House founder Thomas Petrou said. He also added a simple message, asking Wong to stop as well. 

Additionally, Mia Haywood and Bryant Eslava posted similar messages as Petrou. “Did you really follow them to the airport? Chill with that,” said Mia. “Damn, this is too far Kevin,” added Bryant.

Wong responded with a comment of his own, claiming that he was already at the airport waiting for somebody else, and hadn’t actually followed the D’Amelio’s anywhere. 

“I was already at LAX waiting for someone to show up, then I saw a big white Rolls Royce drive around and saw Mr D’Amelio & Charli,” he said. 

Neither of Charli or Chase have responded to the drama themselves, and it might just be a case of others fighting the battle for them. 

We’ll just have to wait and see if any similar responses come up in the future, or if the pair decide to respond themselves.
