Popular YouTuber and internet philanthropist Mr Beast held an epic hide and go seek match in an abandoned town with his friends, sending the winner home with a whopping $60,000.

Mr Beast and his friends somehow acquired an entire town for filming their dramatic take on the classic children’s game.

This was no normal hide and seek match, though: instead, it was an “extreme” hide and seek showdown, which means no one went home until the game was finished – no matter how long it took.

Mr Beast was one half of the seeking squad during the match.

The hiders were given 20 minutes to find a place to hunker down before Mr Beast and one other finder went out on the hunt.

With their hiding spots picked out, the YouTuber and his partner only managed to find three of the players before Mr. Beast instructed them to move 50 feet from their current spot. “It’s extreme hide and seek, not fair hide and seek,” he said of the challenge.

One of the participants even managed to order Dominoes during the game, and was able to pick it up from the delivery driver without being spotted.

Mr Beast also offered his finder a $1,000 a head bounty for each hider he found before midnight, and bribed contestants who had been found for the locations of other hiders. Like he said, it wasn’t “fair hide and seek”- it was extreme.

Even though there were only three contestants left by nightfall, the finders went out into the darkness with flashlights in an attempt to flush them out.

They shrunk the size of the hiding area and made contestants move 100 feet from their spot again to make things a little more fair in the dark.

The hide and seek match went late into the night.

Finally, after discovering the last hider, Mr Beast crowned his friend Ben the winner – and he seemed more than happy to walk home $60,000 richer after a full day of hide and seek.

Viewer who sued Twitch for $25M over “simp culture” denied by judge

Erik Estavillo, the Twitch viewer who sued the platform for $25 million in damages for exposing him to “overly suggestive and sexual content from various female streamers” including Pokimane and Alinity while using the site has had his case denied by a California court.

Back in June of 2020 Estavillo, who has previously sued Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo and Blizzard, filed a lawsuit against Twitch in the Santa Clara Superior Court of California.

According to the lawsuit, Twitch’s “twisted programming net code” combined with OCD and sex addiction made it nearly impossible for him to use Twitch without being exposed to “sexual content.”

Estavillo named a number of female streamers in his complaint, including Pokimane, Alinity, Amouranth, and others, while requesting they be “permanently banned,” however, it doesn’t seem like the court agreed he had a case.

Pokimane and others no longer have to fear being “permanently banned” as Estavillo requested.

In the tentative ruling posted by the court, the judge said the main problem with Estavillo’s case was the evidence he brought forward wasn’t enough to support the claims in his lawsuit.

“The “exhibits” submitted by Plaintiff [Estavillo] with his opposition do not identify, much less support, any claims under California law,” the ruling reads.

Basically, after the lawsuit was filed lawyers representing Twitch made a motion with the court to dismiss it, and the court did “with prejudice.” That means this saga seems to be over, once and for all, and can’t be brought back to court.

A lot of people questioned how far Estavillo would get with his case by blaming some of the biggest female Twitch streamers.

Despite this, the self-described Twitch addict has said he plans on appealing this ruling to the 6th District Court of Appeals, but whether or not things will fare any differently for him there remains to be seen.

Estavillo, who was following 786 female streamers and 0 male streamers at the time of the complaint back in June, said he wanted $25 million from Twitch, along with having all of the female streamers he had mentioned “permanently banned.” With the court’s decision though, that happening now seems slimmer than ever.
