Rookie Twitch streamer SillyMichael was baited with the oldest trick in the book after opening himself up to fan suggestions during a stream of Krunker.

When it comes to streaming on Twitch, even streamers that have had years of experience can fall for things that may land them in trouble. Be it a donation, chat message, or reading out a silly subscriber name, there’s always something to be wary of.

Yet, if you jump into the things fresh and have no experience at all, you’re leaving yourself open to having viewers play jokes on you. If they’re successful, these trolls will have a hilarious clip to show off, claiming to have gotten one over on a new streamer, and bag some internet points in the meantime too.

It was that same cruel, yet hilarious fate, that fell upon SillyMichael during one of his first Twitch broadcasts on September 19.

The rookie streamer had been playing Krunker alongside some friends when he turned to Twitch chat for some friendly advice. “Yo bro, I’m new to this thing so,” SillyMichael said, replying to a viewer who said it gave him more frames per second. 

“Alt F4?” he added, before clicking in that faithful combination and being mocked by his friends for closing the game. “Oh, you dumbass!” called out one of the streamer’s friends as they heard him fall for the classic trick. 

However, the new broadcaster even saw the funny side of things – tipping his cap to the troll for pulling a fast one on him.

“Oh, he got me so good,” he added, laughing about what happened. “Fuck you SomJuu. What is SomJuu? He fucking got me man!” 

Nevertheless, SillyMichael carried on with his stream for a couple more hours, perhaps a little more wary of the pitfalls of trusting Twitch chat in the beginning of his streaming career.

As he grows a little more, the streamer will find regular viewers that he can trust for good information – but it appears as if SomJuu will have to earn their way back into the good books.

TikTok stars Noah Beck and Dixie D’Amelio finally confirmed their relationship status after weeks of being “besties,” but the details of their relationship are still up in the air — more specifically, how Noah even went about asking Dixie to be his girlfriend, in the first place.

Despite being spotted by paparazzi and even sharing an on-screen smooch for Dixie’s music video, this TikTok couple was adamant that they were nothing more than friends, choosing to keep their relationship status private in the age of oversharing on social media.

However, Noah finally broke the silence on October 6, admitting that he and Dixie were officially dating in a then-unreleased interview that sent fans into a tizzy.

While their relationship was almost immediately met with scandal — with Griffin Johnson even creating a diss track that hinted Noah had broken some sort of “bro code” — it seems that these two aren’t letting the drama get them down.

Now that things are official, though, Noah is opening up more about his romance with Dixie, even revealing how he asked out the TikToker-turned-singer — and his methods are giving guys a whole lot to live up to.

During a collaboration with YouTuber Jeff Wittek on October 13, Noah admitted that he and Dixie used to visit Malibu, California quite often, giving him the perfect getaway spot to pop the question.

“There was this lifeguard tower that we always used to sit at, and just talk and stuff,” Noah explained. “So basically, I took her to Malibu on September 25, we went to the lifeguard post and I decorated it with candles. I brought s’mores and s**t.”

“I told her like, wait in the car,” he continued. “I got some stuff out of the trunk, decorated the lifeguard post, like rose petals, candles, stuff like that. I came back when I was done decorating, walked her there, and she knew what was happening, I think. And then I just popped the question!”

There’s no doubting that Noah Beck is this generation’s Prince Charming after hearing all that. It looks like miss Dixie got pretty lucky!
