Popular Fortnite streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is playing wingman to former CWL caster and streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop in a hilarious attempt to woo American singer-songwriter Ariana Grande.

It’s no secret that CouRage has a crush on Grande, thanks to his hilarious Tweet asking the singer out on a date – or even for a chance to be her backup dancer. 

Now, even Ninja is helping him out, taking on the role of a true wingman by reaching out to the Pop star over Twitter on November 21.

Ninja tagged Grande in the hilarious Tweet asking her to give his buddy a fighting chance. 

CouRage retweeted Ninja’s request – along with two photoshopped pictures of himself and Grande at fictional weddings.

“I just want to be Ariana Grande’s ‘next’,” he Tweeted afterward, referencing the singer’s new single, ‘Thank You, Next.’


Ninja’s Tweet garnered a slew of hilarious responses from personalities across the esports realm, with the likes of FaZe Attach, Nate Hill, and Dakotaz chiming in.

“Jack may actually have a chance now,” FaZe Attach commented.

“She’ll see soon that Jack is the ‘next’ she needs,” eUnited CoD pro Jordan Kaplan replied.

Even Twitter Gaming joined in on the fun, replying to the thread with a gif of a man eating popcorn, as if watching as the drama unfolded.

This isn’t the first time CouRage has Tweeted about his feelings toward Grande, either – in fact, he regularly talks about his crush on the singer, and was even part of a hilarious Twitter debacle that involved Vine star and comedian Dwarf Mamba.

Mamba asked Grande out in a humorous Tweet on November 18, where he referenced his height and insinuating that Grande should date him due to her own relatively short stature. CouRage responded to his post in good spirits, asking that Mamba let him have a shot, first.


LS reveals how xQc reached out to him during T1 fans backlash

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

xQc reached out to LS during T1 fans backlash

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
