Make-up guru and Internet star James Charles has been announced as the next guest on Twitch’s viral game show “Love or Host” and he’s their biggest guest yet.

The show, which first started in June, combines reality TV and streaming and is aired on the AustinShow channel on Twitch. As the rules go, the chat decides on who is eliminated and will also act as the matchmaker.

The show has very quickly gained traction online, which may be unsurprising given there’s little else to do during a global health crisis. More than 100,000 people tuned in to the first episode, and recent episodes have consistently had more than 1.5 million views. Austin’s Twitch channel now has more than 1 million followers.

The game show used to be called “Rajjchelor,” after Austin formerly went by the alias Rajj Patel, but since rebranding, its popularity has massively increased. Austin also hosts other reality/streaming shows like his Talent Show, which in November will have a $40,000 prize pool.

Previous guests on the show have included Minecraft YouTuber GeorgeNotFound, YouTuber CallMeCarson, and streamer Pokimane, but James Charles might be Love or Host’s biggest guest yet.

Part of the excitement around James Charles being on stems from a previous episode when a  cardboard cutout of James made an appearance, sending fans into a frenzy.

How to apply:

If you’re looking for love, specifically with James Charles, you can apply to be on the show using a Google Form shared by Austin, the show’s creator. Participants in previous episodes have also applied through the Google form.

To apply you must be above the age of 18, and you will need to provide your Twitter handle, and how many followers you have across social media platforms.

In order to be chosen you also need to prove how interesting you are in a 1-minute video submission, and be willing to participate in a live-streamed interview prior to the main show.

How to watch

You can watch the show live on the AustinShow channel on Twitch on Sunday, November 15 at 4 pm EST. We’ve embedded the stream here so you can easily tune in.

You don’t need an account to tune in, but you will need to make one if you want to take part in the comments and really engage with the show.

Popular drama page TikTok Room delighted its 1.8 million followers this week when, on November 25, they announced on their Instagram that they would be hosting their very own awards show!

The post also announced that voting would be on Friday 27 November, with the awards then streaming tonight on Saturday 28 November.

Details surrounding what the award categories were was initially vague, with the account teasing more information throughout the week before opening the polls on Friday for fans to vote for some of their favorite TikTokers in various categories.

Despite the categories remaining unclear prior to voting being open, that didn’t stop some of TikTok’s biggest stars endorsing the awards and encouraging fans to vote for them.

Among other famous faces like Skai Jackson, Nessa Barrett, and Jacob Sartorius, Sway House star Bryce Hall endorsed the awards in a video, joking that he was probably nominated in the “most problematic” category, while Charli D’Amelio, who recently reached 100k followers on the TikTok, told her fans that “there is a special award show on Sunday” and encouraged them all to vote.

Although some fans found that there was difficulty submitting their votes – with TikTok Room explaining in an Instagram post that this was due to heavy traffic on the form- by the time the polls were closed, TikTok Room announced that over 500,000 votes were cast after teasing fans earlier that day with just how close some of the categories were.

What are the categories?

The TikTok Room awards consists of 28 categories in total, and are as follows:

The running order of these categories is not yet clear.

When do the TikTok Room awards start?

While the awards themselves start at 8pm Eastern Standard Time, TikTok Room have announced that there will be a pre-show from 6pm Eastern Standard Time.

It isn’t quite certain how exactly the awards will be broadcast, although TikTok Room did confirm to a fan in the comments section that they would be posting the results on their Instagram page throughout the night.

So, to watch the awards, your best bet is to keep an eye on TikTok Room’s Instagram account!
