After a long time unofficial association, Twitch streamer Dr DisRespect and shaving and razor supplies company Gillette have finally teamed up officially.

While in character, Dr DisRespect, real name Guy Beahm, sports an impressive moustache, which is very much a part of his brand image, featured prominently on his logo.

And the Doc’s unofficial theme tune is also dedicated to the Gillette brand and their famous “best a man can get” slogan, which he often plays at the beginning of his live streams.

Dr DisRespect has become one of the most popular streamers on Twitch over the past two years, already securing sponsorships from gaming related brands G-FUEL and Turtle Beach, but Gillette is his first non-gaming related partnership.

He announced the sponsorship via an extravagant new green screen setup on stream, welcoming Gillette to the “Champions Club” – the name given to his loyal fan base.

Gillette confirmed the deal via Twitter, saying they heard fans “loud and clear” – and it is fitting sponsorship given the Doc’s persona and prominent facial hair.

Dr DisRespect also recently was officially recognized in his common game of choice, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), as he and another popular streamer, Michael “shroud” Grzesiek were given their own official skins in game.

As the popularity and mainstream attraction of Twitch as a platform continues to grow, it is likely even more non-gaming entities become commercially involved in sponsoring and partnering with streamers and events.

Official esports events and organizations, such as the Overwatch League and Team SoloMid, have already began attracting these types of sponsors, but Dr DisRespect is perhaps the first solo streamer to attract this kind of deal.

Mr Beast has announced The Creator Games 2 that will put internet personalities like Charli D’Amelio, Ninja, MKBHD, and more, to the ultimate test of wits where the winner will get $300,000 to giveaway to their fans.

Of course, the biggest prize for the YouTubers will be the title of “Smartest Creator in the World.” Though it doesn’t look like the winner of yesteryear’s Rock, Paper, Scissors mashup event, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, will be returning to defend his title.

This means that there’s going to be a new champion of The Creator Games to crown. Though the contestants shouldn’t expect the same format as last year.

Instead, Mr Beast is going to change the competition with a “Wheel of Games” that will pick every matchups game.

Needless to say, the tourney is stacked with some of the most popular faces on the internet today. Though there are fans who are already casting their predictions, it might be too early to call because of the unpredictability of the event.

There’s going to be a ton of twists and turns for competitors and fans alike to watch out for. The Wheel of Games will have challenges that range from “trivia to geography, spelling bees, and beyond.” Not only that, the fans will be able to vote an eliminated contestant in the late rounds of The Creator Games.

In 2019, the Games was one of the most-viewed YouTube Originals live events bringing in over 662,000 peak concurrent viewers and over 35 million views.
