Some fans believe that TikTok star Bella Poarch may soon be joining 100 Thieves thanks to some videos she has posted — but is it actually happening?

Bella Poarch is somewhat new to the light of TikTok fame, having created the most liked video on the platform in September, reaching over 30 million likes (and counting) bopping her head to Millie B’s ‘M to the B’.

The simplicity of the video, and satisfaction of the perfect timing, clearly made it a hit among fans and has likely helped Bella push to achieve more success in the online world: more, perhaps, than she would have imagined such a simple video could.

Poarch became a viral sensation in September, and it looks like it could pay off big time.

Now, just a few weeks after taking the crown, Poarch is being linked with esports and online entertainment organization 100 Thieves, thanks to several videos posted on TikTok.

On October 3, Bella was spotted livestreaming on TikTok from 100 Thieves’ Cash App Compound in Los Angeles, which first raised many questions from fans of both Bella and 100T.

Then, on October 4, Poarch posted a video to TikTok wearing the cream 100 Thieves hoodie, which prompted even more rumors to start circulating, especially as she has shared her enjoyment of gaming on her various social media platforms over time.

The rumors started to pick up steam, and even Esports Talk’s Jake Lucky suggested that he thinks a signing would “make sense.”

Obviously, with 100T’s signing of Neekolul in July, the team isn’t content with just picking up the biggest names in gaming, they’re looking to gain notoriety in all corners of viral content, and Poarch would fit the bill perfectly in that regard.

Although there’s no real evidence to support this as of yet, it’s not outside the realms of possibility, so keep your eyes peeled.

Elon Musk pleads Overwatch to buff Torbjorn’s turrets

It’s no secret that tech billionaire Elon Musk plays video games, but on October 13, he shocked the internet when he revealed his Overwatch main and how he would buff the hero.

After making a rather random tweet about the “The Illuminaughty” – a clever play on words, YouTuber twomad asked the 49-year-old if he mains Torbjorn in Overwatch.

Regardless of how the weird topic got started, Elon replied saying “um… yes” confirming he does in fact play Blizzard’s hero-based FPS and mains the Swedish engineer.

The unlikely response earned Musk a whopping 26,000 likes. For much of Overwatch’s lifespan, Torb was considered a bit of a joke or throw pick who offered very little benefit on attack.

However, after a major rework, the DPS has grown increasingly stronger and is actually one of the most viable heroes in the game at all levels right now.

Sadly, Musk didn’t state how long he had been playing Overwatch or Torbjorn for that matter, so it’s possible that he had only played when the hero wasn’t as good or only after the big rework happened.

Even the official Overwatch Twitter account decided to get in on the fun and replied to Musk with a picture of a giant Torbjorn turret on Mars.

“We’ve been thinking about this for a while,” they captioned the humorous picture. “Call us.”

Furthermore, Musk went on to explain how he would buff Torbjorn and the ideas were interesting to say the least. “Please buff Torb’s turret!” he exclaimed. “Or maybe 2 weak turrets to allow more strategic degrees of freedom.”

It was certainly an interesting reply and a sign that we could be looking at one of the most ambitious crossovers in history if Overwatch takes Elon up on his idea.

Though it’s unlikely that we’ll see Musk’s ideas make it to the game, but there’s always the Experimental Mode, so it’s possible Elon could end up getting his wish.

Who knows – maybe next time you’re in a game and a player won’t swap off Torb, it may be Elon Musk of all people.
