Twitch streamer ‘Bintokki’ was straight to the point when giving her fans an insight into why her Mom questions her full-time streaming lifestyle.

Just Chatting streamers spend a seemingly infinite amount of time talking with their followers about relevant topics, while also providing an insight into their real-life antics. 

While plenty of streamers dip in and out of the section, while transitioning between games, others dedicate the majority of their streaming endeavors to simply interacting with their Twitch chat.

Just Chatting constantly ranks as one of the most-viewed sections.

The vast majority of Bintokki’s time is spent in the Just Chatting section of the Amazon-owned platform. And the fact that her faithful following return to chat with the Candian streamer has her Mom in disbelief.

“They don’t understand the concept of watching someone talking for five hours,” the streamer opened. “She keeps saying, ‘you don’t have a friend, that means nobody likes you!'”

After scolding her daughter, Bintokki’s Mom had an inkling that she was up to no good: “Why are there people watching you? Are you doing something suspicious? I think she meant to say, are you doing something shameless?”

Of course, the 20-year-old reacted accordingly while laughing off the comments. “Hell no,” she exclaimed, before admitting that her Mom’s comments were a little hard to hear.

“I was kind of hurt when she said that you don’t have a friend… Which means that you’re not funny or entertaining – why would 100 people watch you? Are you doing something shameless?”

Reliving the conversation, Bintokki responded by defending her field of work. “I’m not doing what you think streaming is… I’m wearing my sweater and long pants to stream and I talk!

According to Bintokki, her Mom still wasn’t sold on the concept of why people would watch her daughter without a “shameless” incentive.

The description of stream content as “shameless” originates from popular broadcaster Trainwrecks, who will often brandish very suggestive content in this way.

Of course, Bintokki’s following constantly return to enjoy her hilarious antics, such as when she roped in her Mom to wish a viewer a happy birthday.

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
