Jaryd ‘summit1g‘ Lazar has capped off an impressive run of streams by reaching an unbelievable milestone on Twitch.

The popular internet personality has established himself as one of the largest streamers on the platform, consistently switching up the content on his channel. 

As far as high profile streamers go, he’s as straight up as it comes in terms of interaction with his viewers. He will play the games he wants to play, not what others want to see him grind through – and clearly this has been a recipe for success. 

The former CS:GO player has been on the cusp of reaching it for a while now, but his channel has finally surpassed four million followers on the streaming platform.

It’s difficult to say precisely when the achievement was reached, but there are – as of November 7 – a few hundred people taking him over the impressive total. He is just the sixth streamer to reach this incredible landmark. 

Summit1g, TwitchSummit1g’s Twitch channel shows that he’s now amassed over four million followers.

During the course of the year, the leader of the 1G Squad has done everything that his fans might have expected and more. 

We’ve lost count of the amount of times he’s been involved in fire related deaths in games, reminding people of his infamous molotov death in competitive CS:GO back in 2016, and enjoyed the sheer variety of content he has treated fans with. 

He even pulled out an incredibly funny molly death in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare during a broadcast on its release date, which left fans in hysterics in the chat.

In 2019 alone, possibly the peak of success for summit was his entertaining Grand Theft Auto RP streams, attracting around 40,000 sets of eyes to his broadcasts each time he went live. 

That’s not been all, though, as he almost single-handedly spearheaded a surge in Sea of Thieves content on Twitch back in January – causing the likes of TimTheTatman, Dr Disrespect and even Ninja to jump onto the pirate game, following his success. He often returns to the game, too, much to the delight of fans. 

Rare, Shortys, TwitchSummit1g has been joined by several other Twitch streamers playing Sea of Thieves in the past.

Another tremendous series of streams for summit came alongside the launch of World of Warcraft: Classic, something the Doc said was taking players back to 2002 in a hilarious rant. 

With that being said, his streams generated a huge following during that time – encouraging him to stream right through the night on numerous occasions. Well, that and the fact he was loving the game. 

Now, with over four million followers to his name and a constantly growing fanbase, the sky is the limit for summit on Twitch – which remains the most established streaming platform around.

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
