Trying to reach out and connect with someone on the street doesn’t always go according to plan as this one unfortunate streamer happened to find out the hard way. 

Twitch streamers are no strangers to rejection in front of a global audience yet the countless failed attempts at romance haven’t stopped others from trying their luck.

One particular streamer recently took to the city streets in search of meeting someone special when he was met with a brutally awkward rejection.

In a September 25 broadcast, Twitch streamer ‘Yuber’ was walking the streets of San Diego in hopes of making a genuine connection with a local ahead of TwitchCon 2019.

With full confidence, he walked up to a random woman on the street and jokingly asked for directions to Walmart before actually coming out with the truth, saying “I’m just kidding, I thought you were cute.”

As soon as this topic of conversation came up, the bystander took off without hesitation and practically bolted across the street, claiming that she was “really sorry, I have to be at work at five.”

Clearly made uncomfortable by the situation, she made her departure without shaking hands and thus the attempt at building a rapport was over before it ever really began.

Swallowing the loss, the streamer kept his head held high in defeat and kept on walking down the street without even so much as saying a word or glancing back over in her general direction.

The stream continued on and many more attempts at starting a genuine conversation were made. Whether Yuber will find what he’s looking for though, remains to be seen.

Known primarily for his IRL streams, this certainly isn’t the first time that Yuber has been the center of attention in the Twitch community.

In May of 2018 the streamer released a video that detailed his struggles trying to break through as a streamer.

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.
