The long-standing friendship between Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter and Sykunno still leaves them finding new things out about each other, with Valkyrae ‘shocked’ by Sykunno’s performance in the gym.
In the midst of her May 11 broadcast, Twitch streamer and 100 Thieves co-owner Valkyrae was speaking to her chat about her refusal to attend Electric Daisy Carnival. Claiming “I can’t live this way. I don’t wanna go.”
Joking that she was “still recovering from Coachella,” Rae explained that her current pain was actually due to a workout the day prior.
Hofstetter continued with her description of said gym session with recent YouTube convert Sykkuno, saying “Sykkuno is buff. He did so many pull-ups!”
Continuing to talk about the unexpected strength of the soft-spoken streamer, Hofstetter claimed it was “kinda scary.”
Talking to the surprising nature of Sykkuno being physically fit, Valkyrae cheekily poked fun at her friend “I’ve never seen this man use his legs.”
