IRL Twitch streamer GGria was bizarrely asked out by a stranger “from India” armed with $900 as she wandered the streets of Toronto, Canada during her September 17 stream.

Streamers who take themselves outside open themselves up to a load of weird and whacky situations, and GGria’s experience while she was waiting to order Chick-fil-A was no different.

As she waited she was talking to her chat, before a man suddenly appeared beside her with a determined look on his face, armed with a few questions for the Twitch personality.

“How are you?” the stranger opened with, before sharing some personal information about himself. “From India … let’s hang out?”

GGria was, understandably, blindsided by the abruptness of the stranger’s request, and asked if the fact the was from India automatically meant they should be hanging out. The stranger, appearing interested in continuing the conversation, agreed.

The Indian stranger’s hilarious reasons for taking the streamer on a date weren’t over yet, however, as he rolled out his next defining, and surprising, selling point.

“I’m wearing women’s clothing,” the man said, before breezing past that odd detail and dropping his trump card. “You want to hang out? I have $900, we could go somewhere else instead of Chick-fil-A. We could go to a restaurant.”

The roaming Twitch star seemed stunned by the boldness of the suggestion, as well as some of the details he’d shared, and again politely turned down his offer with an awkward smile.

IRL streamer GGria has been exploring the streets of Toronto in recent broadcasts.

Considering the weirdness of the proposition, her rejection could have gone badly. To the cashed-up stranger’s credit, however, once GGria declined again he accepted her refusal and simply walked away – potentially with a plan to treat himself to a $900 feast somewhere nearby.


As he disappeared into the streets of Toronto, GGria summed up every viewer’s reaction to the situation perfectly, bursting out laughing before exclaiming “What!?” as she read her chat.

The seemingly rich Indian’s proposition isn’t the first time GGria has had an interesting experience on-camera in Toronto either. Just a few months ago, the streamer was left terrified after a man yelled wildly at pedestrians while she was in the middle of her broadcast.

This time around, the IRL personality’s run-in was luckily funnier than it was scary, though it definitely will also be filed into the ‘weird’ category of her experiences.

Borat set for first-ever Twitch stream alongside DrLupo: how to watch

Borat is one of the most iconic characters in the world, and now the Kazakh journalist is set to make his first appearance on Twitch tomorrow where he will ‘face off’ against DrLupo; here’s how to watch.

Borat is more than a national treasure to Kazakhstan. He’s a global icon and one of the funniest characters in the world.

Sacha Baron Cohen first slipped into the Borat persona back in the nineties. But although he appeared in several hilarious skits and cameos, he didn’t explode in popularity until 2006, when the feature-film ‘Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan’ released worldwide.

For those who haven’t seen it, it’s a mockumentary that revolves around unscripted real-life interactions. Sacha Baron Cohen pretends to be Borat, a journalist from Kazakhstan. He travels around the US to learn more about their culture.

But he purposefully presses their buttons and puts them in hilarious situations. He winds up people from all walks of life, which sometimes lands him in hot water.

Borat debuts the infamous ‘mankini’ at 2006 Cannes Film Festival.

Fortunately, we’re lucky enough to experience it all over again with the imminent release of the sequel, ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.’

Seth Rogen claims he has already seen it around six times and said he “can’t wait to watch it a seventh.” He described it as “crazy and wonderful” and believes it has “a few of the funniest scenes [he’s] ever seen in a movie.”

But that’s not all. To promote the movie, Twitch announced that Borat will make his first-ever appearance on their platform.

“For the first time ever, Kazakhstan’s biggest gamer will go live on Twitch,” the Amazon-owned platform announced on Oct. 20. “Very nice.” The best part is, he will ‘face off’ against DrLupo “in a battle for global supremacy.”

The stream goes live on October 20 at 3 pm PT. If you want to know where and how you can watch it, we’ve got you covered.

How to watch Borat stream on Twitch

  • First, you’ll obviously need to wait until the time is right. However, it’s a good idea to tune in a little earlier as most streamers kick things off with a ten-minute countdown.
  • Then, all you need to do is tune in to DrLupo’s Twitch channel, which can be found here.
  • From that point onwards, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

There has been no official word on what games they’ll play. DrLupo has been dabbling in a bit of everything lately, from 7 Days To Die and Escape From Tarkov to Genshin Impact. Maybe even a bit of Among Us might be on the cards.

Of course, it’ll depend on what games Borat has available. For all we know, he might be an absolute machine on Call of Duty: Warzone or League of Legends. But we’re not counting on it.

Either way, the stream is going to be a blast, and we can’t wait until it goes live.
