Streaming superstar Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has revealed how his commitment to World of Warcraft classic made him splash out $13,000 on a private jet between Las Vegas and LA. 

When World of Warcraft classic dropped all the way back in August, Blizzard’s return to WoW’s 2006 state dominated Twitch viewership and propelled usual WoW streamers to the very top of the charts. Though, plenty of other streamers jumped on board as well. 

Before he made his switch to Mixer, shroud could also be found playing classic WoW on a daily basis – even though he did lose a few thousand subscribers because of it. However, the launch of the 40-man Blackwing Lair raid apparently burnt an even bigger hole in his wallet.

The streaming star took a quick private jet trip from Vegas to LA.

As he was bringing his April 26 stream to a close, the Mixer star and Justin ‘Just9n’ Ortiz had been discussing the price of flights during the current climate, when J9’s attention turned to shroud’s private jet experience. 

“You know the only reason I did that was to make my WoW raid,” Grzesiek said. ‘No other flight allowed me to make the WoW raid except for my own jet. I would have done a normal flight but I had to make my WoW raid because it was BWL launch day.”

The former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professional explained a few more ins and outs of getting his own jet, including the fact it cost around $6,600 per hour. Given that it’s about a two-hour round trip, that cost him in the region of $13,000 – something that left J9 pretty gobsmacked.

Shroud explained that it would have cost him about $1,500 on a normal flight but again, it wouldn’t get him back on time. Though, just having a private jet was something he wanted to try anyway.

“I figured you know, why not give it a shot?” he added. “That’s the best time to try it, on a very short flight where it’s not going to be like ridiculously expensive. Like, imagine going to Europe on a private jet.”

While shroud’s flex might leave some viewers stunned, it does show how lucrative of a career he’s had that he can afford to spend that sort of money just for WoW.

Though, even if he managed to get some pretty sweet loot from Blackwing Lair, it might not have been all that cost-effective.

TikTok’s hottest couple, Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, have sparked rumors that they might be getting engaged after Addison flexed a flashy ring on Instagram.

Bryce and Addison — affectionately referred to as ‘Braddison’ by shippers — are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators, who were long rumored to be secretly dating despite their repeated denial to the contrary.

However, on November 30, the two finally confirmed that they are officially dating, and have been together for nearly two months (although they did break up earlier this year after just three days together).

Since their surprise announcement, they haven’t held back with their lovey-dovey social media posts about each other, complete with cuddly, PDA-filled TikToks. And of course, while both creators are still so young, fans of the couple are eager for more content – especially if they decide to tie the knot in the future.

On Thursday, January 14, Addison was spotted by paparazzi leaving XIV Karats LTD jewelry store in Beverly Hills – and  later on, posted a picture of a new sparkly ring on her ring finger to her Instagram story, leaving fans in a frenzy over what it might mean.

Typically, an engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and with the way the picture was taken, it does look like it’s on her left hand.

However, while it has prompted speculation that the pair are or could potentially be getting engaged, discussion on drama Instagram account TikTokroom heavily suggests that the pair are getting each other promise rings, instead.

This is something that several famous TikTok couples have done to show their commitment to each other, including Cynthia Parker and Quinton Griggs, as well as Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon, so it wouldn’t be so surprising if this is the case.

Either way, Bryce and Addison are clearly about as lovey-dovey as they could possibly be at this point, and engagement ring or not, the pair look like they’re in it for the long-haul.
