The father of popular Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has unveiled his next business venture, which involves bringing Chinese women to the United States to teach them how to livestream.

The Tenneys have a strong presence in the world of gaming and social media, with Tfue dominating Twitch as the biggest streamer on the platform, while his brother Jack runs a successful YouTube channel named ‘JOOGSQUAD PPJT’, which boasts 4.8 million subscribers.

Now, Tfue’s dad intends to turn his attention to finding online success of his own, and has targeted China as the location for his rapid expansion.

During an appearance on the KONCRETE Podcast, Tfue’s dad explained to host Danny Jones about the massive potential audience in China, the money that could be made, and his plans to create a streaming empire focused on the Asian powerhouse on platform Huya.

“10% of Chinese streamers are gamers,” Tfue’s dad explained to Jones. “What I saw was a huge opening. We’re going to build a streaming center with female streamers, and then we’re going to put Turner gaming in China on Huya.”

“Turner will be one of the first streamers from the US streaming into China. They’ve got hundreds of millions of people watching, the audiences (in China) dwarfs Twitch.”

(Segment starts at 20:10 for mobile users.)

He then elaborated further on his plan to bring Chinese women to the United States, teach them how to stream, and then allow them to broadcast back to their native land.

“Then we’re going to bring Chinese women here, and teach them streaming, and then they’ll stream back into China from here. It’s a great plan. It’s how you make hundreds of millions.”

“We’re not taking anyone under 18, it’ll be a seperate company run by a woman. It will be women working with women, there will be no men. This will be straight up, straight as a string. We going to empower and make millionaires of these women. I bet in five years we will have 100 women worth $10 million.”

YouTube: KONCRETETfue’s father believes they will make “100 millionaires” through this business.

Tfue’s dad also states he intends to teach them business and marketing skills, and how to make money, intends to give them contracts that are not “ridiculous.” “We’ll do it like a business,” he said. “Not like a clown show.”

While Tfue’s dad clearly has big intentions for the project, he wasn’t able to give any information as to when, or how, this program would actually start up.

xQc explains why his 7-day Twitch ban was actually a good thing

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel finally returned to streaming after receiving a massive seven-day ban for his role in a Fall Guys Twitch Rivals stream sniping controversy. However, according to the French Canadian, the ban was actually good for him.

xQc’s return to Twitch was met with some huge numbers, with over 100,000 viewers packed into his chat.

With such a massive audience, Lengyel explained how, while he expected to be criticized for his actions, he was shocked at how some folks didn’t want him to improve or get better.

“Seeing people not wanting you to move or not wanting you to go past the hurdles, it’s almost like they’re living through you,” he explained. “There’s a lot of them.”

xQc’s return stream was pulling in huge numbers.

According to the former Overwatch League pro, even after he apologized for his actions, some people were still attacking him for silly reasons.

“‘Oh no, not good enough of an apology, I hope you get perma-banned,’” he paraphrased of his haters. “I hope nobody gets perma-banned and there are people I really dislike in the content creator space, and I wouldn’t want them to get perma-banned.”

His reasoning for this is because he believes people can come back and do better. But he also addressed people claiming that Twitch was using him as an example.

“I don’t think bigger streamers get preferential treatment. And I think that was a good showcase of it,” he added. “I think, out of all the other instances, I think that was a good showcase of me not getting preferential treatment. If anything, I got the full juicer. Seven-day whole thing and I got clapped.”

Twitch has often been accused of giving some larger streamers better treatment than others on the platform, so this was a refreshing revelation from the Laval-born Lengyel.

“Even if, let’s say, I was being used as an example, and they put me out there as an example of doing a bad thing, that’s fine,” he continued. “That’s fine because when we come back, I can also be an example of doing better.”

Hopefully, xQc can make good on this challenge to himself and actually become better, just as suggested.
