Twitch streamer Haiyun ‘Eloise’ Tang returned to the platform for the first time in over a year on February 23, and opened up to her viewers about the true extent of her hoarding issues.
Eloise is a Chinese professional Hearthstone player known largely for her time with Tempo Storm, an American esports team based in Los Angeles, California. In 2018, she took a hiatus from streaming due to feeling obsessed with it, stating that she wanted to broadcast when she “felt like it” instead. Viewers had become increasingly concerned due to the fact she was living in a lot of clutter, so were hopeful that a break would help.
She finally returned on February 23, and opened up to her Twitch chat about how she’d recently moved apartments and had to pack up all of her stuff, revealing just how much she’d had to pack into boxes in a shocking confession.
Streamer reveals extent of hoarding
When she last streamed in 2018, viewers noticed just how much clutter she was living in, and were concerned that it was starting to affect her health.
During the recent IRL broadcast, Eloise was asked a question about her hoarding and just how big her moving boxes were to be able to contain all of her belongings.
“I didn’t realize I had a lot of stuff until I started packing when I moved from Shanghai,” she revealed. “I started packing and I realized ‘wow, I have a lot of stuff! I really have a lot of stuff!'”
The streamer asked viewers to guess the total weight of everything she’d packed up in the apartment move. “None of you can guess, not even close!” she said.
She then revealed just how much she’d had to pack away in a truly shocking statement. “So… it was 93 boxes in total. 93 boxes in total!” she exclaimed.
“And I think it was 913kg in total,” Eloise continued, as she giggled at how large of a number it was, with her Twitch chat exploding in disbelief with messages such as “WTF” and “900KG LUL.”
Eloise isn’t the only streamer who has a history of living amongst mountains of stuff. In June 2019, American World of Warcraft player ‘Jaegerrmeister’ embarked on a two-day journey to clean up his bedroom for the first time in over 14 years. He’d been living among exploding trash bags, mouldy food, and more.
He opened up about the state of his room, claiming that he thought he could have a mental disorder such as compulsive hoarding and attributed it to excessive playing of the MMORPG. “I’d like to advise anyone who doesn’t already play WoW to avoid the game at all costs, else they have a room like mine,” he said.
