Popular Twitch streamer Mizkif missed out on a massive $15,000 after completing but failing a strange dance challenge set up by one of his viewers.

One of the things that makes Twitch so popular among broadcasters and viewers alike is the ability to talk, in real time, to your audience or favorite content creator, thanks to the chat functionality included on the site.

Another way the viewers can connect with a streamer is through donations, with many broadcasters allowing those who send money to include a message, which could be a sign of support, a funny quip about the stream, or in this case a challenge to be completed.

Twitch: MizkifMizkif’s antics have made him one of the most popular IRL streamers on Twitch.

Mizkif receives a challenge from a viewer

While watching job interviews with his chat during his Wednesday, May 13 stream, Mizkif received a donation from one of his viewers that set him a strange challenge with a big reward on the line.

The donation, worth $275 from a viewer named Ethan, stated that if Mizkif found dancing so easy, he should copy the moves from a music video provided by the donator, who would reward him with $15,000 if he was able to perform the dance to the donator’s standard.

“Are you fucking kidding me Ethan?” asked Mizkif. “You’re seriously going to give me $15,000 to dance? Are you kidding me? Chat, can I do this, please?”

Ethan continued to pressure Mizkif into taking on the challenge, writing: “If your moves are as good as they are like you say, it’s so easy to do, right?” as part of a second donation worth $35.

Deciding it was worth it, Mizkif accepted the challenge, breaking out some questionable dance moves as he attempted to jive his way to a $15,000 donation.

While Mizkif’s chat believed he had performed admirably, Ethan did not feel the same way, deciding that his moves were not worthy of the $15,000 reward, but did at least send a portion of the cash as a token for Mizkif’s efforts.

“You lost, for the record,” wrote Ethan as he donated $1,800 to Mizkif. “Biased chat is not the judge, but here is your consolation bro.”

Disappointed not to receive the full amount, a stunned Mizkif asked his chat: “Was it worth it?” as he contemplated what had just happened to him.

While the streamer may not have earned his massive reward, $1,800 for a few minutes of dancing seems like a great deal, so it’s unlikely that Mizkif will be too disappointed with the outcome.

TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Hamlinz is back and feeling like his old self again

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
