Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel may best be known for his Overwatch skills and popular Twitch streams but during a broadcast by his housemate Sammy ‘adeptthebest’, the Canadian stripped down and showed everyone his dance moves.

While fans of xQc have come to expect his fast speech and explosive rants on his Twitch channel, the Overwatch pro has been willing to to step out of his comfort zone every now and then.

Viewers were given a huge surprise during his housemate’s stream, when he hopped on for a collaboration and showed off dance moves that heated the entire room up.

xQc gives his best Magic Mike impression

Adeptthebest played the popular dance track ‘Dota’ by Basshunter, which has been used by many in the Valve game DOTA community as an unofficial anthem for their beloved game, when xQc entered the stream shirtless sporting a vest, and a cowboy hat.

Hilariously, the Canadian then strutted and showed the audience his moves, as he moved back and forth re-creating the similar dance seen in the male stripper movie Magic Mike which came out in 2012.

xQc didn’t last very long, as he quickly broke down laughing and said “it’s so bad” as he waved his arms back and forth, before exiting to the left.

His roommate couldnt stop smiling, when xQc returned and said “Jesus Christ, that was like male stripper exactly.”

“It was, that’s exactly what it was,” the streamer agreed. Then a cheeky sub then came in, and praised the Canadian for his dance moves, while simultaneously poking fun at his body. 

“Here is $25, take off the pants next! Dance for me you beautiful stick boy! Make my money worth it,” the text to speech donation hilariously read. 

The Overwatch pro then confidently said he could pull off the same thing in a speedo, to which his housemate laughed “That would be a look!”

xQc has shown off his other talents before

This isn’t the first time that the Canadian has graced viewers with his talent beyond gaming. During his June 14 broadcast, the Overwatch pro decided to show off his singing chops as well.

Belting out Lady Gaga’s ‘Bad Romance’, viewers got a taste of what the Twitch star could sound like on music shows like American Idol, or the X Factor.

xQc again proves he’s a man of many talents. Channing Tatum should watch out, as the Canadian could be a force to be reckoned with, should they ever make a Magic Mike 3.

The streamer is one of the top broadcasters on Twitch, with over 1,555,000 followers as of September 14.

Jake Paul reveals how much money he made from Nate Robinson fight

Despite holding a professional record of just two wins and no losses, YouTube sensation Jake Paul is already making more than most professional boxers will ever see in their careers off the back of his Nate Robinson fight.

Jake Paul is still relatively fresh to the sport of boxing. Following a lone amateur win, his first professional bout came at the start of 2020. He’s just closed out the year with another victory. Both pro matchups went his way thanks to two early knockouts against fellow YouTube AnEsonGib and former NBA player Nate Robinson.

He’s barely spent a few minutes inside the ring across both fights, however he’s already taking home a good chunk of change for his efforts. The internet celebrity brings legions of fans with him, contributing to huge Pay Per View sales and even viral trends after the fact.

Rather than a guaranteed figure for his latest scrap, his earnings were dependent on the performance of the PPV as a whole.

As one of the biggest PPV events of the year – reaching over a million buys in the United States alone, according to analyst Dan Rafael – Paul cashed in big-time thanks to his unique contract for the fight.

The disclosed purses for both Paul and Robinson were a little off-base, as ESPN’s Mark Raimondi exposed in a December 3 interview with Paul. Initial figures were slim, but Paul assured he was paid “a lot,” even laughing when the topic was brought up.

No exact figure was revealed, though he did provide some staggering insight. “Eight figures” is what Paul walked away at an absolute minimum just for the performance alone. “My deal was built into the backend structure of how well the event performed,” he explained. “The event performed incredibly well.”

Walking away with $10,000,000 at a minimum sure sounds like a lot. This number doesn’t factor in potential sponsorship deals or additional PPV buys that come in after the initial batch. There are also international sales to consider as well.

It’s clear he has no signs of slowing down anytime soon either. “I truly believe I will be the biggest prize fighter in the world,” he added.

Segment begins at 9:57.

“Mike Tyson is co-signing me, he wants to take me under his wing. Why can’t I become the champion of the world?”

Paul has some lofty goals and even “realistic” aspirations of fighting Conor McGregor sometime in the near future. It’s entirely possible these eight-figure paychecks are just the beginning for Paul in his boxing career.
