Fortnite Battle Royale player H1ghSky1 has started to broadcast his content on YouTube, after being outed as too young to stream on Twitch. 

The gamer’s age has proved to be a controversial topic since Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney included details of the youngster being pressured into lying about being a 13-year-old during his lawsuit against the organization

Evidence emerged that suggested the player was actually only aged 11 when he signed his deal with FaZe, and H1ghSky1 has since apologized for the lie – claiming that the real age was holding him back. 

FaZe ClanH1ghSky1 wasted little time, jumping right back into the streaming game a day after his Twitch ban.

Twitch appeared to have deleted the account that the player used to broadcast from on June 5, after he broke their terms of service. In order to stream on the platform, the minimum age is 13.

Despite that huge setback, though, he’s started to stream on YouTube just a day later, under adult supervision. 

His mother was seen watching him play Fortnite Battle Royale on June 5, where he discussed his ban directly. 

“I’m back. I’m now streaming on YouTube and my Twitch account was suspended due to me being underage and yes I am 12,” he said during the livestream. “I only lied so that I could fulfill my dream.”

“I’m sorry. I had to lie. I was too young and it held me back. I just couldn’t wait two more years,” H1ghSky1 added, claiming that he was using his brother’s Twitch account to stream. 

The FaZe Clan player will continue to stream on YouTube for the time being, with his mom watching on, presumably until he is old enough to create an account for himself on Twitch.

British fitness guru and social media influencer Matt ‘MattDoesFitness’ Morsia has completely transformed his home gym — but the cost of the renovations was nothing to sneeze at.

Morsia is one of the fitness community’s biggest internet stars; boasting over 1.9 million subscribers on YouTube and 898,000 followers on Instagram, his honest approach to fitness and crazy physical challenges have earned him as substantial audience.

Of course, it stands to reason that someone so dedicated to working out would have their own home gym (especially in a time where going to the gym could put one at risk) — but for Morsia, it’s more than just another room in his home.

For this influencer, the gym is his office, which he explained in the beginning of his video on the topic. He clarified that much of the equipment in his gym had been provided by his sponsors, and since it “directly contributes” to his salary, he chose only the most top-tier brands — something he claimed the average person does not need to do for their own home gym experience.

That being said, Matt went on to reveal the exact cost of the space, and it’s enough to make your jaw drop to the floor (or at least a fair wince).

As for the building itself, he spent a grand total of £34,000 (or $43,979), which isn’t actually part of his house. Instead, he commissioned the space to be completely “built from scratch” in the back garden — further compounding on its comparison to a true office space.

Combined with his equipment — the most expensive part of which was his £2,790 ($3,608) dual cable pulley — the entire gym ended up costing him £47,999 ($62,073). That’s nothing to sneeze at!

Morsia was quick to inform viewers that much of his equipment is no longer available for purchase due to the current global climate, and that other parts of the space — such as the bumper plates for his squat rack — were built by hand.

All in all, Morsia’s home gym is an impressive project that cost an equally impressive amount of cash, but when it’s your livelihood on the line, no price is too high for a quality workout.
