Super Smash Bros Melee pro Juan ‘Hungrybox’ Debiedma was left speechless after a Twitch fan donated a whopping $1,000 for a signed shirtless picture of the fighting game star.

While participating in a Melee tournament on January 10, Hungrybox was watching streams and interacting with his chat when suddenly one user asked a perplexing question.

“Hbox, how much do I need to donate for a signed shirtless pic?” asked mogard, which prompted a bit of an eye raise from the Argentinian.

After taking some time to think it through, Debiedma remarked, “that’s a question. No one’s ever asked me that. I thought I wasn’t that attractive apparently.”

Eventually, the streamer decided to name his price. “You know what would be crazy? If someone donated $1,000 for it and then, you know what I would do? I’d send mogard the picture signed and then we’ll do a giveaway,” he laughed. “For the carbon copy, one of you will be lucky enough to have that.”

With the price extremely steep, it’s unlikely the Smash God actually expected anyone to be bold enough to actually donate $1,000. However, if there is one thing Twitch streamers should know by now, it’s to never count their viewers out.

Mere moments later, mogard himself decided to take matters into his own hands with the $1,000 donation and the perfect message for Hungrybox: “I’ve called your bluff.”

Following this, Debiedma was in absolute shock, unable to speak, shout or even mote with the exception of burying his head in his hands.

“Mogard, how old are you?” Hungrybox asked, finally able to put some words together after a moment of silence. “Jesus Christ. You actually just f**king do that? Oh my f**king. Oh my God! That just happened! This f**king happened.”

The good fortune didn’t end there for Hungrybox either. The Smash pro ended up winning The Galint Open, securing his first Online Major and his biggest Melee victory since CEO 2020. The win opened up the floodgates leading to more subs, donations, and bits coming his way.

Now, only time will tell if Hbox lives up to his end of the bargain and mogard ends up getting the signed shirtless picture.


Virtual streamer CodeMiko banned from Twitch for third time

Popular virtual streamer CodeMiko has been banned from Twitch for the third time, leaving some fans asking if this is a permanent ban. 

Over the years, Twitch streamers have come up with different ways to stand out from the crowd instead of just being world-class at certain games. Some have ramped up production in a major way and you can’t really take your eyes off it.

That includes VTubers and virtual streamers too, who use a digital avatar, editing, and even in some cases, a motion capture suit, to replace themselves on-screen and take on a different persona. 

In the last few weeks, Codemiko – a streamer who takes the VTuber concept to a whole new level – has been getting massive numbers on Twitch. However, she’s now been banned, yet again.

The ban came on January 19 after StreamerBans, who tracks all the different bans – temporary or permanent – on Twitch, tweeted that CodeMiko had been suspended by Twitch. 

The reason for the ban, or its length, is unknown but some fans were quick to speculate on the reason. Some suggested that it was because she used the word Simp – which was recently banned by Twitch. 

Others noted that in a previous stream, where she was interviewing fellow streamer PayMoneyWubby, Codemiko was incredibly drunk and could have been banned for that. Twitch does have some strict rules around drinking on stream, especially if you get out of hand and overindulge. 

There’s no way of confirming just why she’s banned, or how long the ban will last unless the streamer reveals it herself. Twitch typically does not comment on individual bans.

The only thing she’s posted regarding the ban was the ‘sadge’ meme.

This would be her third ban, previously being banned twice in September of 2020.

However, a streamer has to be banned three times within a three month period to rack up a permanent ban, so, she’ll probably be back at some point in the near future.
