Controversial IRL streamer ICE_POSEIDON has locked five contestants in his closet for a live-streamed gameshow on his YouTube channel. 

Paul ‘ICE_POSEIDON’ Denino is one of the more daring real-life streamers currently on the internet, with a fanatical audience who are willing to do anything in pursuit of a few laughs.

In April 2017 he was banned permanently from Twitch after he was swatted on a plane following a prank call from one of his views. The live streaming website deemed his attempts to hide his location before getting on the flight as unacceptable.

As a result, ICE went straight over to YouTube and continued to stream on a daily basis from his Hollywood apartment, and has continued to push the boundaries of what’s acceptable.

In March 2018 he attempted to see how long a number of contestants could last in his closet, with an estimated time frame of 72 hours. The entire thing was streamed and viewers could donate to play any music track of their choice into the room. After four hours the police arrived at the property and shut it down.

Not one to be stopped, ICE_POSEIDON has started up the gameshow again and on May 1st he placed five contestants in the closet, with viewers once again allowed to play any kind of sound they wanted through to the giant speaker. There appears to be plenty of weed and alcohol to keep everyone happy.

Over the course of the stream, the viewers will vote out each contestant one by one until a winner is crowned.

Mr Beast giving $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him the hardest

In another wacky challenge, YouTuber Mr Beast has announced he will award $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him, or get the most likes in comparison to his tweet, with fandoms battling it out to have their fave crowned the winner.

Jimmy Donaldson a.k.a Mr Beast is well known for his grand scale challenges. And with 45 million subscribers on YouTube, he certainly has the means to facilitate them, often partnering up with his huge audience to make great things happen.

On the charitable front, one of Mr Beast’s most ambitious projects was ‘Team Trees,’ where he endeavored to raise the money required to plant 20,000,000 trees. He definitely succeeded, with over 500,000 unique users donating to the campaign.

Instagram: MrBeastMrBeast and his crew of over 600 YouTubers has raised over $20 million for Team Trees.

Among the philanthropy, Donaldson also previously set out to break some online records just for the fun of it. He set out to beat PewDiePie and have one of his videos become the most liked non-music video on YouTube. The video currently has a whopping 15 million likes.

With that in mind, he set his Twitter followers the task of ‘ratio-ing’ his original tweet. To ‘ratio’ someone means either for the number of comments to far outweigh the likes (usually when something is controversial,) or in this case to far outweigh the likes of the original tweet. Essentially, you have to get more likes than Mr Beast himself.

Originally, it looked like popular YouTuber Corpse Husband was going to win the money thanks to his reply tweet of a simple smiley face. Alongside the rise of Among Us, Corpse has experienced a huge surge in popularity in recent months, and said that he would be donating 100% of the money if won to charity.

However, just as it was looking as if Corpse would be sailing to victory unrivalled, a tweet from a BTS fan’s account saying “I know this is impossible but, If ever I win the funds will be directly donated to Funds for Bangtan and BorahaeFunds” began to pick up traction.

Their victory might not be as impossible as they first thought, with dedicated fans around the globe heading in droves to boost the tweet.

Mr Beast even joked “Hey Kpop fans, you about to let Minecraft youtubers show you up like this? Are they the new biggest fan base?”

At the time of writing, Mr Beast’s original tweet has 200,000 likes, Corpse Husband’s 233,000 likes, and BTS_History613’s tweet at 239,000. But with the numbers changing rapidly by the second, who the ultimate winner will be is yet unclear.
