It was another successful running of the Friday Fortnite tournament on May 25th, as the biggest names in gaming and YouTube put on a show for fans – pulling in millions of viewers.

The tournament, hosted and organized by YouTuber Daniel “KEEMSTAR” Keem and tournament website UMG, isn’t exactly about finding the best Fortnite players, but rather, as Keem himself put it, it’s a ‘clout’ tournament.

There are top Fortnite players involved, with the likes of TSM pro players Ali “Myth” Kabbani, Darryle “Hamlinz” Hamlin and Daequan “Daequan” Loco taking part, as well as this week’s winners, FaZe Clan pro’s Dennis “Cloak” Lepore and Turner “Tfue” Tenney.

But there are also some competitors who are not invited for their Fortnite ability, but rather for their popularity, namely YouTubers like Logan Paul and Roman Atwood. These big names help to draw in the massive viewing figures.

The players team up in duos, and battle against another duo to see who can get the highest number of kills over two squad games of Fortnite.

And for week 3, which boasted an increased prize pool of $20,000, the number of unique viewers rocketed once again – to 8.5 million according to KEEMSTAR himself.

Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, who is easily the most watched Fortnite streamer, made it all the way to the finals with his partner, Team Envy player King Richard, where they faced the FaZe Clan duo of Tfue and Cloak.

Having Ninja reach the final likely helped to boost the overall unique viewers, and pulling in 2.6 million on his stream alone might even be record breaking for his own channel in a single stream.

NickEh30 seems to be the most popular Fortnite streamer on YouTube, and considering he only managed 5/6th, his 1.5 million unique viewers is even more impressive.

Some viewers will have watched multiple streams, and so the ‘view’ will count twice for example. Because the tournament is streamed on so many channels, it would be impossible to keep track of this.

Keep an eye out for week 4 of the Friday Fortnite, which should be another night of top tier Fortnite entertainment, giving fans a taste of what competitive Fortnite could be.

And on the Saturday following, a small streamer version will go down, with the winners getting a spot in Week 5 of Friday Fortnite.

Twitch star Jadeyanh had a terrifying night after a stalker kept harassing her by ordering food and even calling the police to her house.

The Germany-based streamer has quite an audience on the platform boasting over 200,000 followers. Now, it seems like one of them has begun to harass the Twitch personality.

During a November 23 broadcast, the streamer’s door began to ring prompting her to go answer it. While she didn’t take the camera with her, she soon revealed food she never ordered was delivered.

“Okay, I guess you’re watching,” she began, addressing her stalker directly. “I have a stalker and that person keeps ordering food for me. This is now the third time the person did that. Officially, please stop doing that.”

As it turns out, the individual had previously ordered 25 pizzas and had them delivered to Jadeyanh’s house.

“I’m shaking. I haven’t left my apartment in days because I’m terrified of doing my groceries,” she added. “So please, stop doing that. I feel like I’m in a prison.”

The streamer went on to explain that her neighbor, who is also a follower, sometimes opens up her packages without her consent. Now, she has another follower who is harassing her with food.

As she took a sip of her drink, her doorbell started ringing so she got up to answer it, but couldn’t bring herself to open the door because the light outside wasn’t on.

Eventually, right before Jadeyanh ended the stream, firefighters showed up at her door because someone told them there was a gas leak and then the police were coming.

“I don’t know who the f**k you are, but it’s your number you called them with and we’re going to get your f**king ass, you dumbass!” she exclaimed. “What the f**k is wrong with you? 25 pizzas! Twenty f**king five!”

At this point, Jadeyanh was so distressed she decided to end the stream, but soon after on Twitter revealed that since she did, six more deliveries have come for her.

“I was stalked when I was living with my grandparents. I’m being stalked in my new apartment after only 2 months of living here. I just want to rest. I’m so tired of everything,” she said in a follow-up tweet.

Hopefully, the police can get to the bottom of this so the streamer can finally start to feel safe again and not have her broadcasts ruined by stalkers.
