Twitch streamer shocks viewers after showing incredibly disgusting keyboard

A Twitch streamer sent his viewers into a frenzy after showing them his keyboard, which turned out to be one of the most gruesome things many of them had probably ever seen. 

Most Twitch streamers spend a majority of their daily life using their PC, which can result in peripherals such as mouses and keyboards to end up getting dirty quickly.

The issue is, if these parts aren’t cleaned consistently, then they can become a horrifying sight, which is what happened to streamer ‘Payo.’

During his livestream on May 20, Payo showed his keyboard to his chat in order to prove to them that his hands were too small to successfully reach certain keys at the same time.

Payo - TwitchTwitch streamer Payo wasn’t afraid to show how dirty his keyboard actually was.

However, there came a point during the sequence when he touched the number pad on the right side of the keyboard, after which he said he had to go wash his hands.

 “Oh dude I touched the right side of my keyboard, I need to go wash my hands guys,” he said. “I usually never wash this side. There’s like hair! I’ll be back guys, because I usually touch only the left side.”

He then proceeded to move his facecam close to the right side of the keyboard, revealing a truly horrifying sight, as dirt, hair, and muck could be seen in and around the number pad. 

Payo - TwitchThe sight of this keyboard horrified many of Payo’s viewers in the chat.

As expected, most of the viewers were absolutely shocked at the state of Payo’s keyboard, with many expressing their disgust in the chat.

Funnily enough, despite all the outrage in the chat, the streamer simply laughed it off and went to wash his hands. 

Other streamers with gross setups

Payo is not the only Twitch streamer to have been called out for having some part of his PC setup be terribly dirty. 

Just a few weeks ago, xQc’s viewers were made witness to a horror show when the star streamer showed them his messy work station

That was preceded by Tyler1 showing his untidy setup on stream, which was exposed by his girlfriend Macaiyla while he was in Germany for TwitchCon Europe. 

At the end of the day, if Twitch superstars like xQc and Tyler1 are comfortable with their setups being messy, then maybe Payo has no reason to feel bad about his keyboard debacle.

Who is Granny? The rising Twitch star who streams as a grandma

Twitch is home to some pretty outlandish personalities, but none may be as unique as the rising streamer known only as Granny.

Dressed in a bright white wig, oversized glasses, and attire that you could have sworn you’ve seen the elderly wear, Granny takes the character to the extreme.

If you thought the outfit or persona was the limit of the character, think again. Just like how Dr Disrespect streams from his legendary “arena,” Granny has her own broadcast center of sorts.

From Granny’s house to Twitch

Her streams begin, amusingly enough, with an old house in a green meadow surrounded by rainbows, flowers and chirping birds.

After introducing herself, talking to viewers from inside the big pink home that looks like it’s ripped from either Lord of the Rings or Teletubbies, the gameplay kicks off.

What makes Granny’s choice of games so hilarious is that she’s made a habit of streaming titles such as Dead by Daylight, which are the complete opposite of the happy-go-lucky nature of the intro.

Fans are absolutely loving it. Since starting the stream, Granny has amassed nearly 30,000 followers and is growing on other platforms such as YouTube.

Climbing the Twitch ranks

Speaking with Dexerto, the entertainer refused to break character, further, cementing the concept that this was a grandma streaming on the Amazon-owned platform.

Granny claims it all began when she was working for a finance firm in New York City for three years and was beginning to feel worn out.

“Right around that time, Red Dead Redemption 2 came out and I found a huge comfort being immersed in that world while I took time to recover and figure out my next steps,” the streamer explained.

“When Red Dead Online was released I started to make friends on the proximity voice chat and they told me I should try my hand at streaming. In February 2019 I moved to New Zealand to go all-in on starting a Twitch channel, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.”

That said, she does have plans to return to New York at some point in 2021, so fans should be sure to be on the lookout for that.

While the climb up the Twitch ranks has been a journey since it first began in January of 2019, the streamer does have a few favorite moments.

“A couple of exciting milestones along the way have been Trixie Mattel and TPAIN discovering the stream,” she happily noted. “They love joining in now and again to help repair the ice cream machines in Dead By Daylight.”

Going into 2021, Granny is definitely going to be one of the streamers to watch out for, especially if she continues to get noticed by some larger members of the community.
