Popular Twitch streamer and Fortnite player Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is one of the most successful personalities on the platform – and his subscriber record is nothing to sniff at.

Ninja finally revealed his biggest subscriber count at the height of his Twitch success, as stated during his joint broadcast with French streamer Gotaga on March 7.

The streamers were discussing the benefits of Twitch prime when Gotaga asked Ninja what his subscriber record was – to which Ninja had an impressive answer.

“269,000,” Ninja replied, much to Gotaga’s apparent surprise. 

“That’s a [million] – that’s a cold mil,” he continued, in reference to the revenue he’d made from said subscribers.

However, Ninja isn’t confident that he will ever reach such a number again, due to the stigma around gamers getting rich off of their success in the space.

Red Bull EsportsNinja admitted to peaking at 269,000 Twitch subscribers during the height of his fame – but he isn’t sure that he’ll reach those numbers again.

“Never again, though – I’ll never hit that again,” he said of his subscriber record. “When a gamer makes revenue or money, it’s like, ‘Oh, they make too much.’”

“Because, to them, they think what we’re doing is too easy to earn that much money,” former CoD pro-turned-streamer ‘Broky Brawks’ chimed in. “All the sacrifices we’re making. We have families, we have girlfriends.”

The Ellen Show, YouTubeNinja’s Twitch success has seen him land on the Ellen Show, the Late Night Show, and even appear in a Super Bowl commercial.

Although he was already well-known in the gaming sphere, Ninja rose to fame after his joint stream with Canadian rapper Drake in March of 2018, going on to secure a massive New Year’s Eve event in Times Square to ring in 2019.

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.
