A contestant in a Twitch dating show was less than pleased after being “yeeted” from the conversation by a mischievous donor, leading to a bitter rant against the game’s female hosts.

As one of the net’s largest live streaming platforms, Twitch is a haven for all kinds of content, from IRL streams to competitive gaming and even mock “dating” shows, which imitate popular programs like famous TV series “The Bachelor.”

One such dating show, hosted by streamers “SuppyColleen” and her sister, Caitlin, puts a unique twist on the format, allowing viewers to donate money for the chance at being interviewed — or even kick the current contestant from the stream, altogether.

Thus, contestants never know when they’ll be booted from the stream — a fact that left one interviewee a bit salty, after a donator spent $15 to kick him out of conversation just after his interview began.

“I am so sorry,” Caitlin apologized after a “yeet” sound effect announced that the contestant had been kicked off of the interview. “You were yeeted! Someone kicked you off.”

“What do you mean?” the interviewee asked. “I don’t get it.”

Twitch streamer “SupCaitlin” tried to explain the rules of the show to an angry contestant, who was bitter that he’d been kicked off just after starting his conversation with the girls.

Caitlin then clarified the situation for him, and although she explained the format quite clearly (which was also clearly displayed on the stream overlay), he appeared to be quite upset at the scenario and even accused the women of scamming him.

“You guys are a bunch of scam artists, you know that, right?” the contestant shot back. “You guys are f**king shameless.”

“We didn’t tell them to do that!” Caitlin admitted.

“Nobody cares, you should f**king just… ignore it!” the man interjected. “If you had any pride. …listen, I waited fifteen minutes, so you should at least give me that!”

Unfortunately, the hosts couldn’t go against their rules, leaving the contestant quite bitter as they removed him from the stream.

“I didn’t wanna talk!” Colleen exclaimed. “I was scared! I’m sorry, though.”

“I mean, that’s how it works!” Caitlin argued. “I don’t know why you guys donate so quickly. At least let them talk!”

All’s fair in love and war, after all — even if you lose money to another donator.

Travis Scott and PlayStation tease new PS5 “Cactus Jack” Nike Dunks

Travis Scott has revealed a new “TS5” teaser with PlayStation, which features a brief glimpse showcasing what appears to be a PS5 and Cactus Jack collaboration on a pair of Nike Dunk lows.

The 2020 king of collaborations, Scott, continues to up the ante. This time, he and Sony partnered to put together a teaser video, which is an obvious ode to the infamous Maxell “Blown Away Guy” advertisements from 1980.

In the social media commercial, Sony’s PlayStation headquarters are shown, followed by a few different employees who represent different aspects of the new console’s development (platform, design, and engineering). Afterward, Scott sits down, powers on a PS5, and is literally blown away.

Each employee is rocking some of Scott’s Cactus Jack merchandise, including one wearing a pair of his iconic Jordan 1 lows and one wearing a similar design, but on a pair of Nike Dunk lows. In the corner, a PS logo can be noticed by the sneaker’s heel.

It’s a short and sweet video, starting with some foreshadowing and teasing of the collaboration before finishing with a direct promotion for the PS5. An employee is seen wearing the PS5 Cactus Jack Dunks and then later, Scott himself appears to be wearing them as he kicks back and turns on the console.

In what might be obvious to those who have a keen eye for historic marketing content, the ending Scott portion of the clip is nearly a direct recreation of Maxell’s original ads from a couple decades ago. Those ads featured someone turning on one of the brand’s cassette tapes and experiencing the media quite physically. 

Similarly, Scott’s clothing, hair, and surrounding furniture are simultaneously hit with an unrelenting gust as soon as he powers on the PS5.

With the announcement from Sony that Scott has been enlisted as a “strategic creative partner,” it’s unclear exactly what the extent of this collaboration could mean. At the very least, fans can expect the two to work together on more projects.

One such project could be a pair of Cactus Jack sneakers, which would mean a three-way collab between Nike, Sony, and Scott’s own personal brand.

Scott’s sneaker collaborations typically sell out very quickly and then dominate the resale market, where resellers net huge profits just by lucking out and being among the first to invest in his reworked designs.

This sneaker follows the original Jordan 1 design, with an inverted swoosh logo on the outside, but in a contrasting colorway. Similarly, it seems to feature a PS5 logo at the heel (as other Nike and PlayStation collaborations have). It’s unknown whether these will be made available to the public or if they will be a “friends and family” symbolic release.
