Twitch star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney ended up going through with his Valentine’s Day plans to go on a date with YouTuber James Charles.

Being single on Valentine’s Day is tough, especially for Tfue who is coming off a high-profile breakup with fellow streamer Corinna Kopf.

When February 14 rolled around and Tfue found himself on the market, he responded to James Charles’ tweet that asked who his Valentine would be by saying it’d be him. The YouTuber quickly agreed and fans thought that was the end of it. It would be easy to think this was all just a joke, and that the two would never go through with it… But that’s wrong.

As it turns out, they actually got together and went on the date. On February 16, the popular Fortnite pro revealed the pair went jet-skiing together on Valentine’s Day.

The only terms of the date were it couldn’t be in Los Angeles, so presumably, they met up in Florida since that’s where the Fortnite star lives now following his move from California.

Tfue shared a picture of the two with the caption “it never hurts to shoot your shot,” which was proven true here in a big way.

We don’t know the full details of their get together, but it definitely looks like the two had a lot of fun together. With that said, it remains unclear if there will end up being a second date.

The pair’s fans immediately went wild after seeing this and the reactions quickly poured in.

“Legit jealous [right now],” said YouTuber Lazarbeam.

He was far from the only big name to say something as reactions from Lil Nas X, TimTheTatman, Benjyfishy, and many, many more came in.

If the two do go on another date, it’s looking they’ll have a lot of people rooting for them and excited to see what they do next.

We just have to wonder who’ll be the first to shoot their shot next time.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
