Twitch IRL streamer knocked off her feet by startling donation

Popular Twitch chef ‘GGria’ was preparing for a cooking stream when she was taken aback by a rather startling donation while she was shopping.

GGria loves to cook for her viewers. It serves a nice double purpose – she gets to hang out with her Twitch chat friends, while also making food to get through the week. She shares her favorite recipes along the way, which means people in her chat also get to learn some new techniques.

However, you can’t cook without food, and getting food usually involves going down to the shops. Taking her stream along with her is just usually part of the journey, which can sometimes get pretty weird, and this one bewildering experience didn’t go as planned for the IRL star.

Twitch: GGriaGGria brings her viewers into her home to cook “for them”.

During her November 3 stream, GGria was buying the components for her cooking masterpiece later in the evening, when her viewers decided to play a little prank on her.

While she was wandering around trying to collect ingredients, she received a donation from a viewer. GGria was grateful for the contribution, but was caught completely unawares by the blood-curdling scream sound that came with it.

She was stunned, falling over in a mix of embarrassment, shame, and fear. As she scrambled to collect her phone and groceries after the fall, she looked around to see if she had been spotted.

“Oh, f***, I’m going to get kicked out,” she whispered, as people started to stare at her.

The man in the background of her stream looked confused as to what he had just witnessed in the freezer aisle. If you had no context about an incredibly loud scream, followed up by a robotic “I love shopping,” you would raise some eyebrows.

Twitch: GGriaThe people in the background threw daggers at GGria for the rather loud outburst.

GGria did end up collecting herself and finished her shopping trip without getting kicked out, although she scooted around the rest of the store with her tail between her legs. She also had some difficulty recollecting her thoughts after the frightening donation.

“Now I’m so thrown that I don’t know what I’m looking for anymore,” she said, laughing nervously during the rest of her adventure.

She found her way home after a quick bubble tea stop and got cooking, serving up a nice dish of Chinese fried rice for herself.

While there’s no cleanup required in aisle five this time, GGria might have to be a little bit more cautious about how loud her stream notifications are while she’s out and about.

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
