Streamer finds weird way to keep busy during 24-hour handcuff challenge

Twitch streamer Izidore had a pretty interesting way of keeping himself entertained after the person he was handcuffed to during his 24-stream decided to catch a bit of shut-eye.

Aside from showcasing the best video gaming talents, Twitch also gives a home to streamers who want to take their daily routine and throw it into a bit of a reality TV show-like setting.

We’ve seen streamers lock themselves inside a cage – not once, but twice – in a bid to become a ‘better person’ even though that got cut short. Yet, Izidore – a growing streamer – took things to a pretty unique level by handcuffing himself to fellow broadcaster MelissaBug as a part of a 24-hour challenge.

The pair of streamers handcuffed themselves to each other for 24-hours.

However, seeing as there isn’t all that much that you can do while handcuffed to another person for a full day, MelissaBug opted to catch some shut-eye while Izidore entertained the viewers by chatting with them.

Yet, he found a way to keep himself entertained while also keeping his fellow broadcaster as a part of the stream. As she lay asleep, the streamer threw a live cut-out of his mouth over hers, lining it up so his smile looked strangely natural on her mouth, before parodying what his fellow streamer.

“Hello, it’s me, Melissa,” the streamer said. “I love being handcuffed to Izidiore for 24-hours. Wow, I’m so excited I could sleep.”

Though, that entertainment didn’t last too long for Izidore, so the streamer returned to making pouty faces, a few natural-looking but strange smiles, and attempting to make it look like he was poking the camera feed of his mouth.

He gave up not long after, noting that he had “milked” enough of that mouth content, so he switched back to the regular camera set-up for the final few hours of his pretty unusual challenge.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
