Popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reacted to a viral Twitch stream proposal while on his own stream, and was very excited and thrilled for the happy couple. But not for the reason you’d expect.

What’s a better way to celebrate love than by getting married after a beautiful proposal? Well, according to xQc, it’s doing your taxes together. 

A staple of the former Overwatch pro’s very popular streams, other than his traditional gameplays and his hijinks-filled IRL segments, are the sections he spends reacting to various clips online.

Robert Paul for Blizzard EntertainmentxQc has transferred from a pro Overwatch career to streaming with abundant success.

Early into his December 12th stream, where he later watched the Game Awards with his chat live, xQc pulled up a list of notable Twitch clips from throughout 2019 that included the viral clip of streamer ‘EdisonParkLive’ proposing to his girlfriend after setting a record for consecutive hours streamed.

He was very excited for the couple in the midst of an emotional moment, but his reasoning why was not at all expected.

“That’s good for taxes, I’d cry too, dude,” he remarked over two people crying tears of joy. “Think about all the f*****g money they’re saving, that’s crazy. Chat, think about all the free juice and tax breaks from being married.”

He’s not wrong, however. In the United States, it’s rather common knowledge that getting married does help with doing your taxes. But it didn’t make it any less jarring or hilarious for the streamer’s chat that taxes were what he was thinking about during that moment.

The list of clips he was looking from was for a New Years Eve award show hosted by streamer and YouTuber NymN. The nominations are for different categories of streamers and stream clips that were prominent throughout the year.

Some of NymN’s categories include Biggest Cringe moment, Streamer of the Year, Biggest fail, and Meme of the Year. xQc himself is involved in a handful of the nominations, including his ‘six consoles’ bit for Meme of the Year, Best Rage moment, and Streamer of the Year, among others.

He didn’t end up voting for the proposal clip for Most Emotional moment however, instead voting for an emotional Peter ‘Dupreeh’ Rasmussen dedicating Astralis’ back-to-back CSGO major win at IEM Katowice to his late father.

xQc has had a meteoric rise this year on Twitch, so it’s not surprising to see him nominated for Streamer of the Year alongside names like Dr. Disrespect and Forsen. Hopefully, if he himself claims any of the awards he’s nominated for, he can write off a new trophy case on his taxes next year.

Don’t forget to vote yourself in the Dexerto Awards this year!

Logan Paul reacts to Jake calling him a “fake fighter” before Floyd Mayweather bout

YouTube star Logan Paul is set to throw down with undefeated professional boxer Floyd Mayweather this February — but little brother Jake Paul isn’t a fan of their upcoming bout, even calling his sibling a “fake fighter.”

The Paul brothers have unexpectedly shifted from their careers as top-tier YouTubers into white-collar boxers. Ever since August 2018, the two have dedicated their time to training and scoring high-profile matches; and Logan may have taken the cream of the crop.

On December 6, 2020, it was announced that Logan would be fighting 50-0 pro boxer Floyd Mayweather in a “Super Exhibition” match in February 2021. This news seemed to overshadow Jake’s 2nd round KO over Nate Robinson a week prior, which may have influenced his thoughts on his older brother’s upcoming match.

“My brother is f**ked,” Jake taunted in an interview with TMZ. “It’s bad for the sport. I think it’s just for clout. You know, my brother’s a fake fighter. I’m the real fighter. He’s 0-1, I’m 3-0.”

A week later, Logan has finally responded to his little bro’s scathing words — and it’s safe to say that he’s a little confused as to where the venom is coming from, although he’s completely unfazed by the insults.

“I’m like, little brothers up to some s**t, like he wants to get some attention for a sec, go for it,” he said of the matter. “But I fully support Jake — whatever drama he wants to stir or create, it really doesn’t bother me. ‘You’re a fake boxer.’ Okay. Let’s box, because Jake is the kid that gets beat up by my sparring partners.”

“I’ve become like rubber sheet metal, dude,” he continued. “In this fight, everyone’s sayin’ a lot of things, and for good reason. I’m fighting Floyd f**king Mayweather! So I’ve literally become immune to every — I’ve heard it all.”

(Topic begins at 47:58)

Jake isn’t the only one unsure of his brother’s chances; even Mike Tyson claimed that Floyd would “beat [Logan’s] f***kin’ ass” when it comes time for their match.

While the odds are certainly against Paul, there’s still a chance that he might surprise his critics and go the distance against his formidable opponent.
