Anyone who has ever watched popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc‘ Lengyel knows that he speaks at an amazingly fast pace, and Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek interviewed him to find out the reason why.

Tactical first-person shooter Escape From Tarkov has captured the attention of a number of the gaming’s most popular streamers, leading to the formation of all-star teams as they join up to loot, hunt down enemy players, and make it out of the matches alive with the spoils they collected along the way.

On Thursday, January 23, a four-man team that many thought they would never see together entered the fray, as four of the world’s top creators came together with Dr Disrespect and Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar linking up with xQc and shroud to create the ultimate streaming dream team.

xQc is well-known for talking extremely fast, and shroud found out the reason why.

While playing together, shroud decided he finally had an opportunity to ask xQc about the reasons behind his quick-fire speech, and after explaining he wasn’t trying to insult his fellow Canadian, the former CS:GO pro put the question to him, in hopes of finding out the reason.

“Do you speak quickly on purpose,” shroud asked, “or is that just natural? You talk fast bro.”

The former Overwatch pro replied: “I really like the idea of talking, but I don’t like the action. I think it’s too long to talk, I try to crunch all the words together to get it done as fast as possible. So sometimes I end up cutting syllables and whatnot, you know?”

Shroud admitted that he understood the thought process behind xQc’s quick speech, comparing the action of talking to playing Overwatch or CS:GO, saying that sometimes you want to get things done quickly, and not tell a story every time you open your mouth.

While xQc’s reasoning behind talking quickly does make sense, it’s still surprising to hear him say that he doesn’t particularly like speaking at all, especially considering the industry he works in.

Addressing your audience is a cornerstone of being a Twitch streamer, as fans listen in to hear your hilarious anedcotes or fascinating opinions, but for xQc, it’s all about getting the talking portion over as quickly as possible so he can focus on the game.

Logan Paul has risen to fame as one of the most prominent YouTubers and online personalities of the 21st Century. His success brings financial rewards, and his growing exotic car collection reflects this. 

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
