One of the biggest stars on TikTok, 19-year-old Addison Rae, might be making the move into streaming, after a fan suggested she team up with Corinna Kopf for some Fortnite action.

Addison's popularity has grown exponentially since she started posting on TikTok in Summer 2019, fast approaching the top 10 most followed accounts on the platform, with over 23 million fans at the time of writing.

This number has risen sharply ever day for months, as has her following on other social media like Instagram and Twitter. But, despite her confidence on camera, Rae is yet to fully dive into streaming or YouTube.

Like TikTok, livestreaming has been creating its own superstars in recent years, with the likes of Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins, Michael 'shroud' Grzesiek and Dr Disrespect all celebrities in their own right.

Meanwhile, Charlie D'Amelio and Addison, two of biggest names on TikTok right now, have been making TV appearances and cutting big promotional deals. So, why not try their hand at livestreaming video games?

That's exactly what one fan wants to see at least. With  another suggesting Addison team up with one of most popular female streamers, Corinna Kopf, to broadcast some Fortnite games for their millions of fans.

After Rae seemed to consider the idea and ask Corinna for her thoughts, the streamer, who moved to an exclusive deal on Facebook Gaming, was clearly in favor of the idea.

100 Thieves Twitch streamer BrookeAB also offered to duo up with Addison.

Of course, while Corinna is tied to streaming Facebook, it doesn't determine where Addison herself might stream. In fact, with all the competition between rival platforms, it might be time for Twitch, Mixer and YouTube to make moves to sign non-streamers like Addison to their platform.

Securing streaming exclusivity for Addison Rae could be very beneficial to one of these platforms, as millions of TikTok fans would make their way over to her channel, wherever it is.

For now, Addison Rae is undoubtedly busy with other commitments, as she and the other 'Hype House' members jet around the world making appearances and doing promotions. But, when she finds some time to get it setup, streaming could be her next venture.
