Despite being two of TikTok’s biggest superstars, influencers Noah Beck and Dixie D’Amelio are being spurned by fans on Omeagle — and it’s turned into a massively viral trend.

Noah Beck and Dixie D’Amelio have become one of TikTok’s most prominent couples, officially revealing their relationship status in October after ample speculation from fans that they had been dating in secret.

With Dixie rising to prominence in the music industry and Noah Beck achieving internet fame via the Sway House, these creators boast an impressive 68 million TikTok followers between the two of them; but some viewers are pretending not to know who they are.

It seems that Dixie and Noah have been perusing Omegle for potential content or to interact with their fans, as the service randomly pairs up users with each other for the purpose of “talking to strangers online.”

However, it doesn’t look like the TikTokers weren’t with the screaming fans they likely anticipated; instead, a few viewers have been pretending not to know the influencers, leading to some seriously awkward moments that have gone viral on social media.

It doesn’t look like the TikTokers waited around for an explanation, either. Instead, they quickly shut down the conversation and left in many of the clips, leading to shock from the internet pranksters.

“Humble Noah Beck and Dixie, guys, if you find them!” one of the jokesters said after the two left the video chat.

The mastermind behind the “humble them” video later uploaded an explanation for the prank to TikTok, where she gave context behind the call and claimed that it was just a joke with no ill intentions toward the influencers.

“All of this was a joke, and we just wanted it to be funny,” she explained. “And act like we didn’t know them. But no hate towards them. Whatever. …it was just a trend to act like we didn’t know them. So we did!”

Thus far, a few videos of the trend have taken the TikTok world by storm, with many commenters seeming equally shocked that Dixie and Noah simply left after not being recognized.

New Twitch streamer NickCKelly got emotional on stream when he got his first viewers after waiting for nearly an hour, gaining thousands as followers as a result of his wholesome reaction.

2020 was a booming year for Twitch, with top creators like xQc and Valkyrae achieving huge numbers in terms of followers and views, and several gaming trends surging in popularity at various points in the year, meaning success all around.

With these huge creators out here smashing records, it’s easy to forget that many are only just starting out their venture into streaming, both casually and seriously.

This year has no doubt prompted more people than ever before to give streaming a try, but it’s not as easy as it might seem from the outside – especially if you’re starting from zero.

2020 helped Twitch do massive numbers all round.

NickCKelly was one such individual who wanted to give streaming a go, and he couldn’t have been more grateful when he eventually got his first viewers after a while on stream by himself.

He had been streaming for almost an hour when he noticed that some viewers had joined his previously empty chat, and he looked stunned.

“I have my first viewer, hi!” Nick said, looking taken aback by the sudden appearance. “Wow, this is amazing. I’m genuinely honored to have you in my stream, you’re my first viewer that I’ve had, I’ve been streaming for 48 minutes.”

“I feel like I’m gonna cry, man,” he said with the most wholesome reaction possible, tearing up as he spoke to his new viewers.

Over on Reddit, user Avoxio who found Nick’s stream explained why they entered his empty stream. “Me and some friends were scrolling through twitch and found this guy. His stream title got us intrigued so we decided to stop by.”

They also said “at first we thought he was trolling so we messed around a bit not thinking anything of it, throughout our conversation we realized that he was being genuine,” and said they decided to share his stream in hopes of getting him recognition.

Nick also responded in the comments: “I will not let you all down. I want to prove to people that there is goodness in the world, and that we are capable of so much more than most think. I think there’s so much pain and suffering in the world right now. Helping even a single person is making a difference in the world.”

The unexpected reaction from the small streamer certainly seemed to strike a chord with some viewers, and Nick has now shot up to 4.7 thousand followers at the time of writing.
