Popular streamer Andrew ‘GiantWaffle’ Bodine has broken the record for most hours streamed in a month on Twitch, finally completing his Streamvember quest.

The popular variety broadcaster set out to smash the record previously held by JayBigs, by kicking off a month of streams on November 1. He even noted that he’d been preparing himself with around four hours of sleep a night and that he’d have to stream for around 17 hours per day.

GiantWaffle also revealed that he had even rigged his house up with different cameras, so that viewers wouldn’t miss a minute of the action. While it may not have been an exact replica of the Big Brother TV show, the streamer splashed the cash on making sure that he’d be able to take the honor from JayBigs.

Twitter: GiantwaffleGiantWaffle is one of Twitch most popular variety streamers with over 880,000 followers.

With the month coming to a close, Waffle finally managed to break the record on November 30 with only a few hours left to go. “The excel sheet is setting off fireworks, what?” he asked while checking up on the document he was using to track stats. I just looked over and it’s exploding, what? How?”

Despite his confusion, the streamer managed some celebrations. “Chat, we did it! 570 hours,” Waffle said, but he wasn’t finishing up there and then. “We’re not done just yet, we’re going to push it a little further but holy s**t. Nineteen hours a day for 30 days straight, a little bit over 19 hours is why we’re actually almost two and a half hours ahead of schedule.”



After streaming for a few more hours and celebrating with fans – who started dropping gifted subscriptions and donations – the streamer revealed the insane numbers behind his feat.

“30 Days. Thirty 19 Hour streams in a row. 570+ Hours Streamed. 3 Million Hours Watched. 10,000+ Subs,” he Tweeted after also noting that his channel had risen into the top 15 on Twitch as well. 

Seeing as the record has been broken twice, once by JayBigs and now GiantWaffle, there will no doubt that another streamer or two wants to try their hand at it. 

It’d take some insane dedication (and perhaps even training too) considering the lack of sleep involved. For now though, it’s time for Waffle to bask in the celebrations before returning to a more normal schedule.

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
