LA Valiant’s Australian OWL support star Custa says he would join the gamer bathwater craze started by Belle Delphine and sell his because it’s “free money”.

In a new “Custa News Network” video on the Los Angeles Valiant’s YouTube channel, Scott ‘Custa’ Kennedy answered questions from multiple users. One asked, “is gamer girl bathwater a soup, stock or beverage?” 

“I’m gonna avoid that one,” Custa replied. “And just give it a pass Because that’s… the whole concept of what the gamer girl bathwater is just wild and I don’t want to go down that rabbit hole.” 

The question was a reference to Instagram model Belle Delphine’s infamous “Gamer Girl Bathwater” such she sold in containers for $30 a pop.

Despite not wanting to talk about the bathwater, the support star admitted that if people were willing to spend $30 on his bathwater, he “100%” would sell his. 

“Why wouldn’t you sell it?” he asked. “It’s $30. That’s just free money.”

“Think about it, I can have a bath, I’ve been draining all my water my entire life. I could be a millionaire,” he added.

Custa isn’t the first Overwatch League star to reference or allude to Gamer Girl bathwater. Toronto Defiant’s Gods joked on Twitter about selling, “head sweat from the cranium of the gods. $5 for a sample, $30 for 8oz of my head sweat. Health benefits and good luck or your money back. (supernatural abilities not guaranteed.) DM me.”

Belle Delphine’s batch of Gamer Girl Bathwater, which retailed for $30, sold out in a single day.

It would be interesting (and scary) to see if any of these players actually attempt to sell their bathwater or head sweat. 

Custa started his Overwatch League career back in season one as a member of the Dallas Fuel. A blockbuster trade saw him head to the Valiant in exchange for French support powerhouse Unkoe.

He became a stage champion last season when the Valiant defeated the then reigning two-time stage champions, New York Excelsior.

Jake Paul reveals how much money he made from Nate Robinson fight

Despite holding a professional record of just two wins and no losses, YouTube sensation Jake Paul is already making more than most professional boxers will ever see in their careers off the back of his Nate Robinson fight.

Jake Paul is still relatively fresh to the sport of boxing. Following a lone amateur win, his first professional bout came at the start of 2020. He’s just closed out the year with another victory. Both pro matchups went his way thanks to two early knockouts against fellow YouTube AnEsonGib and former NBA player Nate Robinson.

He’s barely spent a few minutes inside the ring across both fights, however he’s already taking home a good chunk of change for his efforts. The internet celebrity brings legions of fans with him, contributing to huge Pay Per View sales and even viral trends after the fact.

Rather than a guaranteed figure for his latest scrap, his earnings were dependent on the performance of the PPV as a whole.

As one of the biggest PPV events of the year – reaching over a million buys in the United States alone, according to analyst Dan Rafael – Paul cashed in big-time thanks to his unique contract for the fight.

The disclosed purses for both Paul and Robinson were a little off-base, as ESPN’s Mark Raimondi exposed in a December 3 interview with Paul. Initial figures were slim, but Paul assured he was paid “a lot,” even laughing when the topic was brought up.

No exact figure was revealed, though he did provide some staggering insight. “Eight figures” is what Paul walked away at an absolute minimum just for the performance alone. “My deal was built into the backend structure of how well the event performed,” he explained. “The event performed incredibly well.”

Walking away with $10,000,000 at a minimum sure sounds like a lot. This number doesn’t factor in potential sponsorship deals or additional PPV buys that come in after the initial batch. There are also international sales to consider as well.

It’s clear he has no signs of slowing down anytime soon either. “I truly believe I will be the biggest prize fighter in the world,” he added.

Segment begins at 9:57.

“Mike Tyson is co-signing me, he wants to take me under his wing. Why can’t I become the champion of the world?”

Paul has some lofty goals and even “realistic” aspirations of fighting Conor McGregor sometime in the near future. It’s entirely possible these eight-figure paychecks are just the beginning for Paul in his boxing career.
