YouTuber and Fortnite streamer TSM Hamlinz took part in the net’s viral eye-tracking challenge – but he quickly realized he’d made a huge mistake by including another internet star.

Eye-tracking technology has become a near-viral sensation across the net, with top personalities using the software to “expose” or challenge themselves while watching sensitive clips.

With names like YouTube star PewDiePie famously using the tech (which ultimately got him in trouble with streamer Alinity), it makes sense that TSM’s Hamlinz would also take part in the challenge – but his stint ended in a hilariously unexpected turn of events.

TSM Hamlinz, InstagramYouTube star, Fortnite streamer, and Team Solo Mid content creator Hamlinz had a hilarious run-in during his eye-tracking challenge.

During his time with the eye-tracking technology, Hamlinz pulled up a clip of fellow streamer Pokimane, who was discussing the whereabouts of her missing underwear after moving.

While Hamlinz himself was engaged in her conversation, his chat immediately went into a frenzy, accusing him of using the clip for less-than-savory purposes.

Pokimane, InstagramHamlinz’s chat went wild after he used content from Pokimane during his eye-tracking challenge.

“Boys, what the f***!” Hamlinz laughed before pausing the clip. “Okay Pokimane, it was nice talking to you – wait, who is this?”

In the interim, he’d scrubbed through the YouTube video he was watching to another clip that featured both Pokimane and OfflineTV’s Lilypichu, who he jokingly flirted with in the spirit of his “pogchamp” chat.

“Is that Lilypichu?” he continued. “Oh, sh**. Okay Lily, I see you mami. I need you to slide in my DM’s though, baby girl!”

While Hamlinz quickly backed out of the video for fear that his chat would implode, Pokimane wasn’t the only internet star against whom he tested his might: the streamer likewise watched a video from fitness model Sommer Ray, laughing all the while.

“This sh** is stressful!” he joked, before returning to his video about Pokimane and attempting to distract himself by watching her pet cat, rather than looking at the streamer, herself.

Funny enough, Pokimane also undertook an eye-tracker challenge in September, which led to an equally hilarious attempt at avoiding borderline ban-worthy clips – and even a moment where she broke down in awe of another streamer’s unique “abilities.”

There’s no doubt about it: eye-tracking tech can lead to some highly entertaining streams, even if they end up embarrassing the streamers using the software.


Bryce Hall puts Quen Blackwell on blast after Griffin Johnson TikTok drama

Following on from Quen Blackwell and Griffin Johnson’s social media clash, Bryce Hall has now jumped into the mix and lashed back at the original post that kickstarted the feud.

If you’re not up to speed on the latest TikTok kerfuffle, don’t stress. Here’s a quick refresher. Two days ago social media celeb Quen Blackwell reacted to a TikTok post featuring Bryce Hall and Addison Rae.

Their relationship has been hot and cold throughout most of the year. Blackwell took the opportunity to joke about the on-again, off-again couple, yelling “no” at the top of lungs in her own post. While Johnson was the first to take issue with her comedic reaction, Hall has now fired back as well.

Rather than calling her out on social media, however, Hall allegedly got in touch and hashed it out directly. It’s clear that things didn’t go down all too well between the pair as he’s since gone on to expose their private conversation.

“So I confronted her and talked about it,” he said. As it turns out, Blackwell was forthcoming with her intentions. “I only do this for likes and being relatable,” she explained, according to Hall.

“I get it, you’re just doing it for numbers. It had like 1.5 million likes, I get it,” Hall assured. As social media personalities, both have their own audiences and both create content to generate engagement. While that TikTok may have struck a nerve at first, it seemed as though they were able to get on the same page in their chat.

That mutual respect didn’t stand for all too long though. Blackwell claimed she wouldn’t do it again, though that wasn’t the case as she touched on the subject 24 hours later before deleting her videos. “It’s so fake,” Hall said in response.

“Now that she’s deleted the videos, we’re friends again. We’re gonna be like the rest of these social media people and just act as though nothing happens behind the scenes.”

Clearly not too pleased with how the drama unfolded, Hall can at least respect that Blackwell deleted her latest videos. At the time of writing, this seems to be the end of the controversy. Though it could all kick off once more if Blackwell goes back on her word yet again.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated if the latest TikTok drama continues to explode across social media.
