The second week of KEEMSTAR and UMG’s Friday Fortnite tournament built on the success of week one, with a doubled prize pool and even more big name players taking part.


Up from $5,000 in week one to $10,000, the tournament attracted the likes of Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, Dr DisRespect, Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek and more of the top Battle Royale streamers around.

With so many participants and exciting match ups to watch, hosts UMG put on their own stream of the event, in addition to players themselves, and did their best to bring viewers the as much of the action from across the tournament.


Complete with casting from some of the UMG team, the stream acted as the central hub for the tournament, allowing fans to enjoy lots of top players’ POV’s in one location.

And ahead of week three, which will once again feature another increased prize pool up to $20,000, the UMG team have released a highlight reel video showcasing some of the craziest moments from across the second event.

There is of course Ninja’s 23 kill round which was likely the number one highlight of the whole run, but also some other impressive and funny clips from the variety of players.


Week one winners NICKMERCS and Sypher feature in the highlights too, despite not being able to replicate their placement this time around.

You can also watch some of the most impressive moments from eventual winning duo SoaR Thiefs and Typical Gamer, who surprised many to take 1st place.

The third iteration of the the Friday Fortnite tournament is set for this Friday, May 25th, and as mentioned will feature a $20,000 prize pool.


Also be on the lookout for the new Saturday Fortnite tournament, which KEEMSTAR has arranged for ‘smaller’ creators to get their shot in the limelight.

Expert reveals cost of YouTuber watches: PewDiePie, Jake Paul & more

A watch expert on YouTube has taken it upon himself to take a look at the timepieces of some of the platform’s biggest stars, revealing the surprising cost of some of their watches, as well as roasting a few of them, too.

Pride & Pinion is a luxury watch boutique in Belfast, Northern Ireland, run by Dutch-born Nico van der Horst, who in 2020 has taken it upon himself to educate people on watches: most notably, some of the biggest names on YouTube.


Having previously taken a look at the watch collections of the likes of Logan Paul and KSI, as well as megastars such as Leo Messi, Post Malone and Floyd Mayweather, Nico decided to give his honest opinion on certain YouTubers’ watches, as well as explain how much they cost.

Clearly, Nico knows what he’s talking about, and he thinks some of these YouTubers have made some questionable decisions when forking out tens of thousands on these timepieces.

Nico knows all there is to know about luxury watches.

The creators he looks at range from Casey Neistat, to PewDiePie, to Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau: and he wasn’t afraid to hold back if he thought they had overspent.

YouTubers’ watch prices

Nico was impressed by some of the watches on display, though, and definitely by the financial decisions some of them were able to make.

Here are all the pieces he evaluated, including how much they cost:

  • Casey Neistat: Yellow gold Rolex Submariner with black dial — $20,000+
  • True Geordie: Yellow gold and steel Rolex Submariner — $10,000+
  • WillNE: Two-tone Rolex Sky-Dweller — ~$20,000
  • Vikkstar: Hublot Fusion Chronograph — No price stated
  • Trisha Paytas: Chanel J12 — $5,000 pre-owned
  • Tana Mongeau: Fully iced out Rolex Datejust — $15,000 (bought by Jake Paul)
  • PewDiePie: Rolex GMT-Master II — $10,000


Obviously, Nico was a bigger fan of some watches than he was of others. While he was very impressed by that of WillNE, Casey Neistat and True Geordie, he clearly had huge admiration for PewDiePie, especially the reasons for why he chose that watch.

On the other hand, there were some he hated. He said that Vikkstar “needs some help with the watch game,” refers to Trisha’s Chanel piece as “just sh*t” and Tana’s as “aftermarket garbage.”

Clearly, Nico knows a thing or two about watches — and maybe these YouTubers need him to guide them along the right path when it comes to their wrist jewelry.
