Overwatch sensation Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has a more controversial outlook to Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins’ recent appearance on Celebrity Family Feud, as the Fortnite superstar won $25,000 for charity.

Following Ninja’s original appearance on the popular television program ‘Family Feud’ back in 2015, the 28-year-old Red Bull athlete appeared on a celebrity version of the show with fellow Adidas athlete and American Footballer, JuJu Smith-Schuster. 

The pair competed alongside their families to earn money for charity, with Team Blevins earning a sizeable amount for their charity Stack Up, an organization dedicated to supporting both active-duty and veteran military through the use of video games.

However, in a stream on August 30, Lengyel joked about Ninja's charitable efforts: “$25,000?! That’s like a whole 9 minutes of streaming on Mixer, dude… Seriously.”

Albeit a crude explanation, Ninja’s record-breaking move over to Mixer would likely provide money of a similar stature to that explained by xQc, as Blevins has previously reported monthly earnings of over $500,000 from streaming alone.

After a short pause, Lengyel proceeded to add that Ninja’s appearance on the show was a “waste of his time”, and that it was not an “efficient revenue-making” strategy, regardless of the fact that this appearance was for charity.

Nonetheless, the Blevins brothers combined in a ‘Fast Money’ section to earn $25,000 in a matter of minutes while getting some laughs from presenter Steve Harvey, and the audience.
