Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke fell out of her seat while taking on the Beanboozled jelly bean challenge with Twitch streamer Seán ‘Jacksepticeye’ McLoughlin.

Clearly there weren’t any foul-tasting jelly beans in Westeros, where Clarke portrayed Danaerys Targaryen in the HBO smash hit Game of Thrones, which ended back in May 2019.

In an appearance on Jackscepticeye’s Twitch channel though, the “Mother of Dragons” came across the disgusting Beenboozled game, which offers candy which comes in two different flavors – one which is lovely, and one that is absolutely disgusting!

Instagram: emilia_clarkeEmilia Clarke teamed up with Jackscepticeye, who dressed up as her co-star Kit Harrington.

With the Irishman holding the box of beans, a concerned-looking Clarke dipped her hand in, and pulled out a pinkish piece of candy, holding it up and announcing that it was either “Strawberry banana smoothie or dead fish.”

After trying to smell it to see if it gave off a whiff on what it could be, the actress popped it into her mouth, but it quickly became obvious which version of the candy she had got, with an expression of horror coming over her face as she spat it out, and slid off the sofa in anguish.

“That’s really disgusting guys,” Clarke mumbled into the microphone as she lay on the floor. “That’s really gross.” There wasn’t much sympathy from her YouTuber partner though, who immediately claimed she was dead!

After her hilarious trip to the floor, Clarke got up just in time to laugh along with the Irishman, who was begging the stream director not to give fans a wide-angle shot of his Jon Snow costume.

Emilia and Jacksepticeye were teaming up to raise money for the actress’ charity SameYou, an organization started by the actress to raise funds and help increase neuro-rehabilitation access following brain injuries and stroke, with the 32-year-old revealing she suffered from two aneurysms.

The stream was a resounding success, with the pair raising over $260,000 in their four-hour stream.


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.”
