Dr Disrespect’s latest Twitch return teaser is as confusing as the first

Dr Disrespect has released yet another teaser for his return to Twitch after being banned on the platform since the E3 trade fair, and it’s more confusing than you might expect. 

The Twitch streamer, who has over 3 million followers on the platform, was banned for taking his IRL stream right into the mens restroom during E3 2019 at the Los Angeles Convention Center on June 12. 

With his fans counting down the days until that long-awaited July 8th return date, there’s no doubt that they will be clamouring for not just his iconic intro, but the patented violence, speed, and momentum that have become mainstays on his livestreams. 

G FUELDr Disrespect’s fans can’t wait for his Twitch return.

The new teaser doesn’t exactly give anything away in terms of what his first broadcast back will include, either. There’s no mention of any games that he would like to play – like Apex Legends, Fortnite, or any other battle royale title for that matter. 

What it does include, though, is a very weird gym scene. Not exactly a telltale sign of what’s to come next for the Doc, but the trailer shows what appears to be a personal trainer – Dan “the body” – who completely abandons their client when their phone starts to ring. 

Who was on the other line? Look no further than the flip phone wielding, two-time, back-to-back, blockbuster video game champion of 1993 and 1994. You guessed it, Dr Disrespect. 

Dan “the body” was involved in the first teaser as well, where – again – his phone started to ring. This time it was suggested that the Doc was base jumping from the Empire State Building in New York, before the screen went black. 

His huge cult fanbase, who went absolutely berserk in his Twitch chat when they found out his ban had came to an end on June 25, will have July 8 circled on their calendars waiting to get the notification that says the Doc is back. 

Until then, we’ll just have to keep waiting for more and more of these teasers, however weird they might be.

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
