YouTube makeup guru NikkieTutorials revealed more details of the lead up to her debut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show after making her guest appearance.

While she describes her time on the show as “a huge honor,” she revealed on a Dutch talk show (translated by YouTuber Sebastian Williams) that the culture around the show wasn’t as welcoming as she might have thought.

Comparing the two shows, Ellen’s and De Wereld Draait Door (The World Keeps Turning), Nikkie lightly touched on the difference between them.

Nikkie made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in January 2020.

When Nikkie was describing her experience before appearing on the show, host Matthijs van Nieuwkerk suggested that the backstage prep was more “cold and distant” than in the Netherlands. She agreed.

“Well let’s just say there is a huge difference between this show and Ellen Degeneres’s, and I’m saying that in favor of [The World Keeps Turning],” she said, according to Williams’s translation.

The makeup queen said that in the Dutch show, hosts and people would greet her before her on-stage appearance – something that she noticed was kind of missing before being a guest on DeGeneres’s show.

While the beauty guru was trying to avoid the subject and focus on the developments to the Eurovision competition instead, she let out just enough to get people interested.

The YouTuber made waves across the internet when she revealed she was transgender in an emotional, empowering video. The announcement has over 34 million views since being published on January 13.

Nikkie reportedly became an instant target for interviews and talk show requests throughout the media landscape, but she decided to take up an invitation to appear on Degeneres’s show. A move that she said she was “shaking” with excitement prior to making her debut.

This wouldn’t be the first time there have been somewhat negative stories of DeGeneres’ show, either. Popular podcast and YouTubers H3H3 broke down a segment from 2017 of the show’s host calling out a member of her audience. Host Ethan Klein called the moment “one of the most uncomfortable moments [he’s] seen on television.”

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
