With livestreaming booming, more aspiring gamers and entertainers are trying to become the next big star, but the established streamers have already attracted millions of fans. Here’s the top 20 most followed streamers on Twitch.

Before Fortnite came along and took over Twitch in 2018, the streaming landscape looked a lot different, but it has grown exponentially, with many of the internet’s biggest names coming from a Twitch streaming background.

While some broadcasters are closely tied to a single game, like Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney was with Fortnite for some time, others have built up followings on what’s known as ‘variety’ streaming, while others attract fans thanks to their skill, sometimes doubling as professional players.

Ninja remains on top even after Twitch exit

Ninja is comfortably number one in terms of followers, with over 14 million. He ended his exclusive partnership with Twitch when he moved to Mixer, so he’s no longer Twitch’s top guy officially. Following Mixer’s shutdown, we are still waiting for Ninja to announce a new deal with a streaming platform but he still holds the most followed spot.

At the time of Ninja’s move, former CS:GO pro Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek was in second place with over six million followers, but Tfue has taken advantage of Ninja’s departure to overtake shroud, who also moved to Mixer for a short while but is back on Twitch.

So, he will be fighting to take back the number two spot.

Tfue has now overtaken shroud, but has a long way to go if he wants to overtake Ninja in followers.

The absence of Dr Disrespect

Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm broke the internet after being banned back in June this year, with influencers and celebrities searching as to what the reason was behind the ban. Even now, not even the Doc himself knows why. But because of this his account with 4,15 million followers has disappeared and won’t be appearing on this list even though it would put him at 10th place.

Dr Disrespect made his return to streaming on YouTube with crazy numbers, but he won’t be able to play games with streamers while they are also streaming due to Twitch’s terms of service.

TSM Myth, who briefly took the number two spot in 2018, now sits in fourth with over 6.7 million followers.

Veteran streamers like Jaryd ‘summit1g‘ Lazar and Tim ‘TimTheTatman‘ Betar still find themselves within the top 20, showing that even after plenty of years of streaming, a loyal fanbase will stick around and grow.

Imane ‘Pokimane‘ Anys is the only female streamer to make the top 20 with almost  5.4 million, and will likely remain so for some time. The next most popular being Loserfruit, who is a fair bit behind in 52nd, with just over 1.85 million followers.

Logan Paul has risen to fame as one of the most prominent YouTubers and online personalities of the 21st Century. His success brings financial rewards, and his growing exotic car collection reflects this. 

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

IT’S FINISHED!!! Three months of customization and “The Cool Bus” is finally complete 😈 We turned a regular, boring school bus into the most ridiculously obnoxious and savage content machine in the United States. It’s not a head turner – it’s a god damn neck breaker… AND IT BANGS, @WestCoastCustoms y’all killed it 🔥🔥🔥 FEATURES: Smart glass (automatic window tint), 30 interior speakers, electric winch, color changing LED lights, toilet, microwave, kitchen, hammock on the inside, 50 inch flatscreen with Apple TV & wifi, two @Lovesac beanbags, air conditioning, an intercom system and a bunch of other dope stuff 😂🙌🏼 (p.s. swipe over and check out the tires, always plug, Merch link in bio YEET)

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
