Dr Disrespect is officially atop the Twitch subscriber charts ahead of other streamers like Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, a huge step up from being Twitch’s third most-subscribed streamer in October 2019.

One month on from being in the third-place spot, the Doc has had an incredible few weeks. Not only has his subscriber count increased and made him the Face of Twitch once again, but he is now a two-time award winner after being named Streamer of the Year at Esports Awards 2019.

That’s why it’s of little surprise to see him be the most-subscribed channel, but it’s still impressive nonetheless.

Dr Disrespect/TwitchThe Doc is back on top after fighting off the competition.

According to metrics site Twitch Tracker, the Doc has over 31,000 subscribers on Twitch at the time of writing, almost 4,000 more than surprise runners up, CriticalRole, a primarily D&D-focused channel which plays various games and takes part in talk shows, podcasts and more, providing a variety of content for viewers.

In third place is last month’s number one xQc, who has just over 26,000 subs to his channel. Impressively NICKMERCS comes in at number four with over 23,000 subs, but a whopping 763 of those are tier 3 subscribers – more than twice as much as the three channels above him combined.

Rounding out the top 5 is MOONMOON, a former Overwatch streamer who now plays various games for his audience.

Completing the top 10 are some other familiar faces – Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar, Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar and Edwin ‘Castro’ Castro to name a few, as well as variety streamer AdmiralBahroo, who jumped six places into sixth place.

The award win likely helped the Doc gain a few more subs, but he was always going to be amongst the top anyway. However, knowing that he is number one on Twitch once again must be a nice thought to help him sleep at night.

All of these streamers are probably benefitting somewhat from the likes of Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek heading to rival platform Mixer, both commonly being found near the top of the rankings when they were still streaming on Twitch.

Now the best way for the Two-Time to prove his streaming dominance is to finish the year at number one again and see in 2020 as Twitch’s most subscribed streamer.


Mike Majlak reveals why he’s broken up with Lana Rhoades

Mike Majlak and Lana Rhoades have been the sweethearts of the internet world for quite some time, but their relationship is officially over, with Mike Majlak breaking the news on YouTube.

Mike Majlak and Lana Rhoades have been in a relationship together for ten months. It’s been a widely publicized roller coaster ride filled with ups and downs. However, it was one that many mutual fans loved to see.

It was also the only relationship Mike Majlak has been involved in throughout the past decade. But sadly, not all relationships can stand the test of time, and the two of them have officially parted ways.

Mike Majlak broke the news in a YouTube video. “Never thought id ever put out a breakup video but this one was necessary,” he said. “I wanted the story told my way before others could tarnish what was an incredible relationship and part of my journey.”

In the video, Mike Majlak explains that he felt like the fans deserved an explanation since the breakup happened out of the blue. “There’s no one specific reason [for the breakup],” he said. “It wasn’t a loyalty thing.”

“The best thing about Amara [which is her real name] is that she’s so fiercely loyal,” he added. “I never once had to worry about her cheating [or] talking to any other guys. It was never about other guys.”

His comment immediately shuts down rumors and accusations that she cheated on him. It’s often the first thing people suspect when there’s a sudden breakup.

Instead, he claimed they were simply “two people who wanted vastly different things.”

Mike Majlak and Lana Rhoades always looked madly in love.

“Amara was… obsessed with the idea of linear and traditional life and love,” he said. “She wanted to meet a guy, she wanted to settle down, she wanted to have a family and just live this kind of linear life.”

“That’s just not who I am,” he said. He also claimed she was “trying to facilitate the vision that she saw for the relationship, which was getting a house and moving in with her.”

However, while it made “made complete sense to her,” it didn’t to him, and it didn’t feel right to go ahead with it. 

In the end, there were too many signs that they wanted “two vastly different things in life” and “weren’t cut out to be together” and “go the distance.”

The breakup has been hard on them both, so to make things easier, they’ve been trying not to talk and keeping their distance.

It’s a sad end for one of the more beloved internet couples in recent times, but it’s certainly not a bitter one. The two of them have clearly thought long and hard about the decision.

In the end, it seems like calling it quits made the most sense in the long run, but they’ve parted ways on good terms.
