Twitch streamer left in tears after eating world’s spiciest chocolate

Fortnite or Call of Duty, you can do pretty much do whatever you want – just provided you stay within the rules, that is. 

That often leads to some interesting IRL (in-real-life) streams when broadcasters are out and about, pulling off impressive art showcases, and more often than not, the chance for streamers to take on some daring challenges in front of their viewers.

Instagram: fer0ciaFerocia is a growing stream and currently has nearly 6,000 followers on Twitch.

That was no different during ferocia’s November 10 birthday stream, where she was tasked with eating the world’s spiciest chocolate bar. Prior to doing so, the streamer checked out what she was getting into and while some previous participants cried in agony, that didn’t deter her.

Instead, the streamer dove right in and felt the effects immediately. “Oh, this is not fun,” she called out, before spinning around in her chair, visibly pained. “How long can I not breath for before I die?” ferocia asked as the pain became worse. “My mouth is crying.”

With the pain becoming worse and worse, the streamer asked her chat when she could resort to milk and ice cream, but that didn’t seem to provide much relief as she continued to squirm in pain.

“Oh my God,” ferocia yelled, again wriggling away from looking right down the lens of the camera. “Oh God, f**king game over bro. Oh my God, ice cream.” 

As she said, tears had started to run down her face, although that wasn’t the only reaction her body was having to the heat of the chocolate. The streamer also noted that her nose also began to run.

“Dude, there are tears running down my face – I don’t know how to show you them,” ferocia added after returning back to the camera. “Oh my God, I haven’t even wiped any of the tears way, they’re just streaming down my face.”

While some may have assumed that the pain would have been too much and ferocia would have chickened out of taking another bite, that wasn’t the case.

The streamer took another piece and experienced a similar heatwave, but she seemed a little more prepared for it the second time around. All in all, it might have not been the most ideal way to celebrate a birthday, but at least some viewers got a kick out of the painful scenes.

TheGrefg breaks Ninja’s world record for most-viewed Twitch stream

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
