Streamer instantly regrets eating dog food for donation challenge

One unlucky Twitch streamer’s unique donation challenge went south in a hilarious way, after a viewer tested her resolve to eat wet dog food in exchange for a specific amount of cash.

Many live streamers set certain goals for themselves throughout their careers, with the aim of growing their viewership or reaching a particular amount of money donated by fans.

Some of these broadcasters will even undertake a particular challenge as a reward for their viewers’ support, such as one streamer’s bizarre “Wasabi” challenge that concluded with him vomiting after downing an entire bottle of the spicy condiment.

Twitch streamer “CarlaSophie” had a visceral reaction after eating a spoonful of dog food for a donation challenge.

While it’s no “Wasabi challenge,” partnered Twitch streamer “CarlaSophie’s” own undertaking is humorously reminiscent of the ordeal, which entailed eating an entire spoonful of wet dog food in exchange for a donation of €50 due to the prodding of her fanbase.

However, it doesn’t seem like Carla actually expected anyone to take her up on the challenge, as evidenced by her reaction to a viewer’s donation of the exact amount and ensuing message that read, “You seem hungry.”

After claiming that her chat wasn’t going to donate the €50, the streamer had to go through with her promise, and left to procure both a large spoon and a package of dog food to meet her fans’ demands.

Holding her nose closed, Carla popped the dog food into her mouth — but unfortunately, she wasn’t able to keep it down, and ran off camera to spit out the concoction before she chucked up the rest of her stomach’s contents.

After a long moment, she appeared, admitting that she had actually thrown up in her trash can due to the challenge.

“I swallowed a little bit and I accidentally lifted my fingers off my nose, and that’s when it hit me,” she explained after offering to refund the viewer’s €50. “It was so bad!”

CarlaSophie isn’t the only streamer to have eaten dog food as of late, either: popular broadcaster HAchubby likewise sampled pet food with fellow star LilyPichu — but unlike Carla, the Korean streamer actually seemed to enjoy the animal treat.

Although Twitch streamers definitely do some strange things for the camera, this particular instance made for an unforgettable moment for both HAchubby and Carla’s audiences.


xQc explains why he actually likes strict Cyberpunk 2077 streaming rules

CD Projekt Red just unveiled details surrounding content creation and early access for Cyberpunk 2077. While many believe the guidelines to be quite strict, Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has explained why he actually likes them.

There’s no denying Cyberpunk 2077 is one the most hotly anticipated games in quite some time. After all, it has been seven years since the reveal trailer. The gaming industry has been salivating over every little detail since, and in a matter of days, it’ll finally be out in the wild.

Before we get to the December 10 release date, however, a few lucky individuals have already secured some early copies. Be it through accidental early shipping, or popular content creators being provided early access. Regardless of how people got their hands on it, everyone has to follow a set of strict rules.

Failing to do so will be met with harsh consequences. While various streamers were initially against this kind of approach, one of the biggest names on Twitch has spoken out in favor of CD Projekt Red’s decision. Here’s why xQc actually prefers the strict guidelines.

“Our ambition is for gamers all across the world to have the same – spoiler-free – experience at the time the game releases,” the devs shared in a December 2 post. As a result of this goal, no one is allowed to stream or release content before the December 9 embargo that drops at 3 AM PT.

Anyone that goes against this ruling will be met with copyright strikes and potentially face further legal action. Obviously, once this deadline expires, they want everyone to be sharing their experiences “like there’s no tomorrow.”

Reacting to the news, xQc explained why this approach is far better from a streamer’s perspective. In order to stream various other titles as soon as possible, xQc has had to jump through some hurdles.

“The only games I got to stream early… I literally had to get someone’s account from New Zealand, pay them so they buy the game on my account, get the account back, change password, log in, and play early.”

For other streamers, they’re often given early access codes. That’s never quite been the case for xQc though. Instead, he has to go about things in a more convoluted way. Manually accessing the game through a New Zealand-based account, the region where games unlock ahead of every other country. 

“I had to even out the playing field,” he explained. But thanks to these new guidelines from CD Projekt Red, that won’t be an issue with the launch of Cyberpunk 2077. “I’m happy that [they] took action in making sure the playing field is even across the board for the consumers.”

“It’s better for everybody,” he added before going off on another tangent. Currently investing his time into GTA V, it’s clear that xQc is eager to take a trip down to Night City. Expect to see him, along with practically every other streamer, jumping into Cyberpunk 2077 as soon as the December 9 embargo comes to an end.
