RiceGum & Abby Rao spotted together despite recent major breakup drama

YouTube star Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Le and ex-girlfriend Abby Rao became the center of internet drama amid their highly-publicized split in late 2019 — but it looks like these two influencers may have potentially rekindled their romance.

For those out of the loop, RiceGum — a massive internet personality with over 10.6 million subscribers on his main YouTube channel, alone — and massively popular Instagram model Abby Rao stirred up the internet tea in late 2019, when the two hinted at parting ways via social media.


Rao later admitted in an interview with Hollywood Life that she’d received “heartless” hate from RiceGum’s fans in her comments following their split, with trolls calling her a “gold digger” and claiming she’d only dated Le for “clout points.”

Things got even more heated after RiceGum alleged that Rao had signed a contract with him, which allowed him to claim a certain percentage of her earnings from her work as an influencer while she had been dating him.


RiceGum later moved on and began dating another woman, but these two have since broken it off, as revealed in a YouTube video posted to the FamilyGum channel on September 9 — and it looks like he and Rao might be patching things up, in the meantime.

Rao posted a surprising video to her Instagram Story on September 13, which showed her standing beside RiceGum as the two looked at each other awkwardly.

Although the clip is only a few seconds long, its implication speaks volumes, and fans are already wondering if the two aren’t getting back together in wake of their dramatic breakup last year, which had resulted in a tearful back-and-forth between the ex-couple over social media.


It seems that Le isn’t taking his latest breakup all to well, either, considering his soul-baring YouTube video announcing the issue — and he’s even begged his fans to leave his ex alone as a way to prevent history from repeating itself.

While there’s no telling if Rao and RiceGum are actually getting back together, it certainly feels good to see them back on speaking terms, at least — even if just for a few seconds.

Mr Beast has announced The Creator Games 2 that will put internet personalities like Charli D’Amelio, Ninja, MKBHD, and more, to the ultimate test of wits where the winner will get $300,000 to giveaway to their fans.

Of course, the biggest prize for the YouTubers will be the title of “Smartest Creator in the World.” Though it doesn’t look like the winner of yesteryear’s Rock, Paper, Scissors mashup event, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, will be returning to defend his title.


This means that there’s going to be a new champion of The Creator Games to crown. Though the contestants shouldn’t expect the same format as last year.

Instead, Mr Beast is going to change the competition with a “Wheel of Games” that will pick every matchups game.


When is The Creators Games 2?

The $300k event will pit some of the biggest personalities for the second round of the Games.

Mr Beast is going to go live for The Creators Games 2 on Saturday, October 17 at 2:00 PM PST / 5:00 PM EST on his YouTube channel.

Who is in The Creator Games 2?

Mr Beast invited 24 creators split into two different brackets, and the gamemaster already revealed the first round of matchups to look out for.


In Round 1 matchups:

  • Addison Rae v Ninja
  • KSI v Rosanna Pansino
  • Mark Rober v Gibi
  • Safiya Nygaard v Kwebbelkop
  • Charli & Dixie D’Amelio v Preston Arsement
  • Yes Theory v Bretman Rock
  • Typical Gamer v Lexi Rivera
  • Dream v Matpat & Steph
  • Alex Warren v Lazarbeam
  • Matt Stone v Marques Brownlee
  • Laurenzside v ZHC
  • Swoozie v Jaiden Animations

Needless to say, the tourney is stacked with some of the most popular faces on the internet today. Though there are fans who are already casting their predictions, it might be too early to call because of the unpredictability of the event.

There’s going to be a ton of twists and turns for competitors and fans alike to watch out for. The Wheel of Games will have challenges that range from “trivia to geography, spelling bees, and beyond.” Not only that, the fans will be able to vote an eliminated contestant in the late rounds of The Creator Games.

In 2019, the Games was one of the most-viewed YouTube Originals live events bringing in over 662,000 peak concurrent viewers and over 35 million views.
