One Twitch streamer set a lofty donation goal while raising money for a good cause, but things quickly took a frightening after her stream accidentally caught fire – quite literally.

Many streamers will set a donation goal for various reasons, be it raising money for a new PC, funds for a trip, or in this case, doing their bit for charity.

Generally, these streamers will also meet their audience halfway with a reward once their goal has been met, like playing a certain game on stream or even wrestling in a pool of peanut butter (never change, Mizkif).

However, one streamer took her donation goal to the extreme, after announcing that she hoped to raise $500 dollars during her broadcast for a charity.

Rather than undertaking a normal task as a reward, though, the streamer joked that she would set her hair on fire if she hit the ambitous target – but didn’t actually plan on following through.

“Should I set fire to my hair, if somebody donates?” she pondered. “If someone donates $500, I will set fire to my hair.”

Holding a lighter up to her hair in jest, the streamer ignited a flame, which unexpectedly transferred to her hair. In a moment of panic, she quickly blew out the flame with a short breath, doubling over in laughter at what was nearly a very scary situation.

“Oh my god, I just set fire to my hair!” the streamer laughed. “Oh my god, it smells!”

The streamer told Dexerto she has only started her channel on Twitch two months ago, and so is still getting used to the platform, and made sure to delete the clip after to avoid anyone potentially imitating the accident.

She explained that it was not at all intentional, and to ensure no one tries a similar stunt, even in the name of a good cause. It was possibly hairspray product in her hair that made it ignite so quickly.

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
