Twitch streamer’s broadcast goes horribly wrong after leaving oven on

This unlucky streamer is never going to make the mistake of leaving her oven on again after her Twitch broadcast came to a crashing halt on April 21.

Leaving the oven on and forgetting all about it is a simple cooking mistake that almost everyone can relate to. It’s easy enough to prepare a few ingredients and completely forget to set a reminder once it’s all in the oven. 

Usually, the shame that follows is bad enough, as not only is your food ruined, but you likely have to clean up all the mess as well. Unfortunately for this Twitch streamer, those were the least of her worries.

Jumping into some Valorant action on April 21, brand new Twitch streamer ‘swiftyfeets’ was enjoying her first-ever broadcast on the platform. Right up until the moment things went south. 

Towards the end of a match, roughly 30 minutes into her first live experience, the streamer felt a wave of hunger and said that she “needs to go make some food.”

Immediately upon saying those words, she remembered food was already cooking in her oven. “My f***ing taquitos” she gasped before running towards the kitchen. Unfortunately, she’d forgotten her headset was still plugged in.

Her webcam was whipped all the way around as she tried to dash off frame, before the entire gaming setup seemingly erupted in one fell swoop. A loud crash can be heard, followed by an uncomfortable moment of silence as the streamer realizes what just happened.

“Oh f***. Are you f***ing serious,” she yelled. A few minutes went by as her character stood AFK in Valorant. There’s no clear indication as to just how devastating the mess truly was, but it certainly didn’t sound great.

After a few more curse words, the streamer finally ended the broadcast as she cleared up the mess and tried to fix everything.

All that this unlucky streamer wanted was to get her taquitos out of the oven.

Fortunately, she was seemingly able to get her gaming setup back up and running a short while later. The streamer even came back online and continued to grind Valorant as though nothing major even happened.

Dexerto is unable to confirm the well-being of her taquitos at this time, however.


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.
