Popular Twitch streamer JakeNBake revealed that he was offered a huge deal from Chinese streaming platform Huya, and explained why he decided to turn it down. 

JakeNBake is one of the most popular Twitch IRL [In-Real-Life] streamers out there, entertaining fans with his adventures around Asia.

He has recently been spending the majority of his time in China and Japan and recollected about a meeting with Chinese streaming platform Huya, who offered him a very tempting $1 million deal.

JakeNBake is a popular Twitch IRL streamer.

A usual stream on February 3 saw Jake sitting outside and chatting with his viewers when he brought up the topic of Huya. He had met a representative of the company at an event in China, and was approached with an offer.

“If you remember, at our ChinaJoy stream last summer… [we met] a guy from Huya who wanted to poach me to stream on the platform and said they would pay me $1 million,” he said. He then jokes that  “we didn’t go through with that deal… maybe it’s leaked [now], but yeah they’re expanding” as he was clearly still streaming on Twitch, months later.

The American then continued with his story, explaining he would have also had a job at the company and why he turned it down. “He wanted me to be a product manager for Huya in America or something. If I wasn’t streaming it would be a great opportunity… but yeah, it wasn’t enough.”

His reason behind not wanting to join Huya wasn’t too clear, but it seemed that the offer wasn’t good enough for him to leave Twitch behind.

Fans speculated that Jake would earn more than $1 million from continuing to stream on Twitch, and he may value the freedom of streaming on Twitch quite highly. For now, all fans can do is continue to enjoy his content and wait to see if he is willing to discuss it again.

Popular content creator Hasan ‘HasanAbi’ Piker hilariously trolled fellow Twitch star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek’s new look – comparing it to one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s styles in the new Borat sequel.

Big-name Twitch streamers are always sparking fun feuds between each other for fans to get invested in, as has been seen with the likes of Dr Disrespect, shroud, and more in the past.

Since shroud made his return to Twitch, it has not taken long for some of his fellow streamers to troll him after he debuted a new goatee on stream, instead of his regular clean-shaven look.

HasanAbi was the latest to poke fun at shroud’s choice of facial hair during his October 23 broadcast, comparing it to the new Borat movie.

Borat switches up his usual style for some scenes in the second movie.

Hasan, who’s risen to popularity on Twitch as both a gamer and political commentator was hosting a Twitch watch party for ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ on Amazon Prime. When a particular scene came up, he was quick to point out similarities between shroud and the main character.

While Borat is usually seen with a long mustache, there is a scene in the movie that sees him rocking a goatee and a pair of glasses, causing Hasan to pull up an image of shroud alongside.

“I have to show- oh my god guys, look at this,” he said, before trolling with a side-by-side image of Borat next to shroud.

Hasan could not help bursting into laughter – the match between the former CSGO pro and Cohen’s latest character is uncanny.

Dr Disrespect previously laid into shroud for his new facial hair, and the jokes are not letting up.

Shroud hasn’t clapped back yet, instead just letting his fellow streamers have their fun – while he rides high on his successful move back to Twitch, following the collapse of Mixer.
