Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem’s celebrated Friday Fortnite tournament series has made its grand return, bringing with it a whopping $10,000 giveaway – which one streamer won during his own broadcast of the event.

FaZe co-owner Ricky Banks announced the massive giveaway via his Twitter account on June 7, requiring entrants to like his Tweet on the subject and stay active in the Friday Fortnite stream chat for a chance at copping the cash.

Following the conclusion of Friday Fortnite’s final showdown, KEEMSTAR interrupted the trio of hosts to announce the giveaway winner – who he claimed was streaming at that very moment.

As it so happens, Twitch streamer ‘GiiZTV’ was streaming a watch party for the event at the same time, who visibly perked up when KEEMSTAR mentioned this fact.

Of course, KEEMSTAR ended up announcing that GiiZTV was the winner – prompting a heartwarming reaction from the streamer, who threw his hands over his head in disbelief after shouting, “What?”

“No way!” he exclaimed, placing his hands over his mouth. “Holy shit! What the fuck?”

GiiZTV even got a bit emotional at the news, letting out a few sobs before stating his plans for the cash – which included a charitable donation to one of his friends.

“I’m gonna give away a thousand to my friend,” GiiZTV stated. “He needs a PC to do his job. ….get him a setup, pay some bills.”

KEEMSTAR’s Friday Fortnite tournament also saw a hilarious pairing between Twitch star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg, who brought a ton of laughs to viewers as they attempted to make their way through the fray.

In fact, PewDiePie even pressed Ninja to admit who was the better gamer between himself and Drake, leading Ninja to admit that Drake had the superior Fortnite skills – prompting a humorous reaction from Kjellberg, who reminded Ninja that he’d just revived him in-game not too long ago.

Even top streamer Dr Disrespect threw shade at PewDiePie’s Fortnite prowess, asking the Swede if he was actually from Antarctica, rather than Europe.

KEEMSTAR’s Friday Fortnite series will throw down once more on June 14, this time featuring controversial YouTubers Logan Paul and KSI.

After receiving a huge $2,500 donation, Twitch streamer HAchubby celebrated in a rather unexpected manner that made for an amazing Twitch highlight.

If you’re a fan of Twitch and you tune into the platform regularly then you’ll know that watching streamers receive huge donations is always entertaining. Audiences love watching them so much, there’s even a sub-genre of videos on YouTube that are dedicated to donating huge amounts of money to streamers to see their reactions.

It’s no surprise these videos get millions of views as it’s always great content to see a Twitch streamer having their day made by a big donation. Of course, it’s difficult to predict how someone will act after being donated a large amount of money.

In HAchubby’s case, it involved celebrating by running around her store with a basket on her head.

HAchubby celebrates huge Twitch donation

During her January 19 stream, HAchubby received a huge $2,500 Twitch donation from one of her viewers. Of course, she was extremely grateful for the donation and expressed how thankful she was: “Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god thank you so much.”

At first, it appeared as if she was going to carry on with the stream, but then she suddenly burst into a celebratory dance. Her Twitch chat erupted with messages and her viewers were clearly happy to see how thankful she was for the donation.

It was at that point she grabbed a basket from the store that she owns and began running about the aisle with it on her head. The highlight made for a hilarious Twitch clip and it was obvious how much the donation meant to her.

There’s no denying it’s not your typical reaction to a donation, but it’ll certainly be a memorable highlight for any of her viewers watching live. On top of this, you can guarantee it’ll be added to the range of streamer donation clips featured in various compilation videos.

We’ll have to keep our eye for any more big donations that HAchubby receives to see how she reacts the second time around.
