An IRL streamer was explaining to his Twitch chat that he had never seen a ghost before, when a strange occurrence in his hotel room creeped his viewers out.

IRL streams are one of the most popular categories on Twitch, as viewers are drawn to the unpredictability of them. When going live in the real world, literally anything can happen.

A hitchhiking personality became an example of this when a March 7 broadcast in his hotel room suddenly turned creepy. A perfectly timed incident had his chat believing in ghosts.

IRL streamer ‘Hitch’ documents his travels around the world, and gives viewers a glimpse into what it’s like to hitchhike. However during his latest broadcast, the subject of paranormal activities was brought up by his viewers.

While his chat insisted that the current hotel room he was in was creepy, the personality explained that in all the places he has visited and stayed in, he had never seen ghosts before.

“All my life I have probably camped out probably a thousand nights. I’ve never experienced something that couldn’t be explained. I’ve never seen anything that couldn’t be explained, I’ve never heard anything that could have no explanation,” he said.

As Hitch continued to explain he had never seen anything strange before, the lights suddenly flickered on behind him. The streamer paused, and slowly turned his head around to see what had happened, before turning back to his camera.

His chat erupted into people being creeped out by the incident, with many exclaiming that it was a ghost. However the streamer broke into laughter and said “The timing!”

The Twitch personality also curiously noticed something on the wall hidden behind a painting, so he took it down to reveal a bizarre drawing. “Uh. I think that might be a murder scene. I don’t know about that. What is going on here?” he said, perplexed by the image.

While it seems the creepy hotel room has not convinced the IRL streamer that ghosts do in fact exist, the perfectly timed bizarre incident had many in his chat getting the chills.

Hitch had originally planned to hitchhike across Europe to make it to Twitchcon 2020 in Amsterdam, although it was recently canceled due to coronavirus concerns. Despite that, the Twitch personality is carrying on with his trip as planned.


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.”
