Despite many seeing Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins as the face of Twitch, he’s got some competition when it comes to the fastest growing channel on the platform. 

Ever since Fortnite Battle Royale exploded in popularity in early 2018, Ninja has been enjoying his time at the top of the viewership charts on an almost daily basis.

Ninja was one of the first streamers to really feel the effects of the game’s popularity, hitting his peak in the Spring when he racked up over 200,000 subscribers on Twitch.

While Ninja was rising to success, FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney was also exploding into the scene on the back of some incredible performances during the popular ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournament series.

As Ninja’s subscriber and follow count has started to average out after such amazing highs earlier this year, Tfue has continued blowing up with no end in sight.

After beating out Ninja in total followers gained a couple weeks back, Tfue has once again held onto the mantle with another solid week of followership. According to TwitchMetrics, Tfue has gained close to 145.000 followers in the last seven days, while that number sits at around 125,000 for Ninja.

Tfue might be slowly gaining on Ninja on that front, but it’s unlikely that he’ll be able to catch up with Ninja in terms of total followers and overall hours watched, though.

With 11.8 million followers on Twitch, Ninja managed to pull in 4.8 million hours watched over the last seven days, coming in second only to Riot Games, who managed 7.2 million due to the 2018 LoL World Championships currently taking place.

It’s not time to count Tfue out, however, as despite having almost nine million fewer followers at 3.1 million, Tfue racked up an impressive 3.4 million viewer hours in the last seven days.

It might be a while before Tfue reaches Ninja level’s of popularity with an appearance on Ellen, but Tfue could certainly get there one day if he continues this level of growth.

Popular drama page TikTok Room delighted its 1.8 million followers this week when, on November 25, they announced on their Instagram that they would be hosting their very own awards show!

The post also announced that voting would be on Friday 27 November, with the awards then streaming tonight on Saturday 28 November.

Among other famous faces like Skai Jackson, Nessa Barrett, and Jacob Sartorius, Sway House star Bryce Hall endorsed the awards in a video, joking that he was probably nominated in the “most problematic” category, while Charli D’Amelio, who recently reached 100k followers on the TikTok, told her fans that “there is a special award show on Sunday” and encouraged them all to vote.

Although some fans found that there was difficulty submitting their votes – with TikTok Room explaining in an Instagram post that this was due to heavy traffic on the form- by the time the polls were closed, TikTok Room announced that over 500,000 votes were cast after teasing fans earlier that day with just how close some of the categories were.
