In a recent Tweet, news and drama YouTuber John ‘Scarce’ shared pictures of himself from six months ago.

His past appearance is quite a contrast to that in his recent videos.

The two pictures Scarce uploaded highlighted his weight loss.

Fans and regulars of his channel will note a massive difference in his appearance. While Scarce is quite slim in his most recent video, pictures from six months back show a different side of the YouTuber.

Scarce confirmed that he had lost over 100 pounds since taking the pictures six months ago, citing his change as a “weight loss transformation.”

John also teased an upcoming video detailing his weight loss within the Tweet.

“Here’s my weight loss transformation, 100 lbs in 6 months 😁. Will post a full video on the whole journey next week!”


Scarce revealed more details about his journey within the Tweet thread, disclosing what inspired him to make the change and his starting and ending weight. In a humorous response to DrChiz, Scarce admitted that he got tired of hearing others talk fitness while he ate junk food.

“I actually started hitting the gym back in april 2017 because I couldn’t stand listening to all the fitness talk while lying around eating ice cream 😂. Pka was definitely a huge inspiration (especially kyle’s fat shaming)”

Scarce revealed that he dropped from 280 pounds to 176 since March – over 100 pounds difference.


Scarce’s Tweet was posted on August 25th, the same date as his fight on the KSI vs Logan Paul undercard. Scarce went up against fellow YouTuber and skit creator RackRacka, losing the match three rounds to one.

Scarce’s weight loss echoes that of other YouTubers, such as Gabbie Hanna’s emotional transformation as recorded on her channel.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
