Popular Korean Twitch streamer ‘HaChubby’ couldn’t believe her eyes after receiving a massive donation during a dinner outing, which had a hilarious message attached just for the occasion.

HaChubby is a massively popular presence on Twitch, known for her hilarious on-stream antics, heartwarmingly supportive fanbase and adventurous IRL broadcasts that often feature other internet personalities.

Due to her popularity, it comes as little surprise that HaChubby rakes in quite an impressive amount in donations via her Twitch viewers — but even she wasn’t ready for the huge amount of cash dropped by an extremely generous fan.

The streamer was eating out at a pizza parlour on August 25 when a viewer donated a whopping $2,051.63, asking her to “Order the gorgonzola pizza, enjoy it!”

HaChubby is a massively popular streamer on Twitch, boasting over 224k followers due to her hilarious IRL broadcasts.

Seeming to not believe her eyes, HaChubby’s mouth opened in shock, with the streamer jumping up and down in excitement.

“What the f**K?” she exclaimed, seemingly asking her chat for answers — a humorous response in the middle of a seemingly high-class pizza joint, as told by the smooth jazz playing over the loudspeakers and dim mood lighting.

“Sorry — people are watching me, I’m sorry!” she apologized, running a hand through her hair.

Even HaChubby’s chat couldn’t seem to parse the situation, mimicking her “WTF” moment and seeming to question the odd amount that had been donated.

This isn’t the first time HaChubby has received a ludicrous amount in cash donations, by far; in fact, she was gifted a whopping $1,000 in June of last year, with the donator asking her if she needed a laptop.

That’s not all; the donator even threw in an additional $600 for good measure, telling her to “get a very good laptop.”

While plenty of streamers have gotten incredible donations over the years, none react as wildly as HaChubby, making for a series of feelgood moments that make us wish we were top-tier streamers (although we have to ask that you please don’t donate your rent money to broadcasters, like this poor guy apparently did for Pokimane — much to the chagrin of his wife).

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.”
