Popular Overwatch pro Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel looked genuinely terrified when a stranger suddenly appeared at his window and interrupted his Twitch stream on August 12.

xQc is known for his incredible Overwatch skills, and entertaining over the top rants that often see the Canadian streamer exploding with energy.

But during a broadcast on August 12, the usually boisterous pro became genuinely startled when a strange man showed up at the window behind his monitor.

A stranger at xQc’s window

The popular Twitch streamer was playing Minecraft when suddenly his head jerked up as he noticed something outside. “Who’s outside!? What the!?” he exclaimed before slamming his headphones on the table.

With a look of terror on his face, he then jumped up from his seat and sprinted out of the room as he called out for his housemate and fellow streamer Sammy ‘adeptthebest’.

After returning, xQc explained his confusion to his audience. “Dude, I don’t know what it is. Some guy with like, a stick. Then on the stick is like some fluffy thing and I don’t know what he’s doing.”

Someone in his chat suggested it could be a window washer, but the streamer quickly shot that down. “I don’t think we’ve had anybody like wash the windows, dude”. Clearly disturbed, the Overwatch pro stopped playing, and called up his housemate.

After finally getting ahold of Sammy, xQc asked her if she knew who it was. “There’s somebody in the backyard” he said. “Oh. It’s the pest control guy” she explained.

Still shocked by the situation, the Canadian streamer asked “What is he doing?” to which his housemate replied: “Spraying for the wasps and the bugs and stuff, so they don’t get into the house, or live on our house”.

Incredulous, xQc brought up the weird stick the man was holding. “But he had a stick with like a fluffy thing on top.”

“He’s probably knocking down the nests” she finally replied, before the Overwatch pro accepted the explanation.

While we know xQc is an absolute beast as a Tank in Overwatch, maybe he should enter into Logan Paul’s Challenger Games next year – he has mad running skills.

Josh Richards slams influencers who use the Sway House for clout points

Josh Richards is one of TikTok’s most popular content creators and an integral part of the Sway House — a group that he’s not too pleased is being used for clout by other influencers looking to get a leg up in the industry.

Josh Richards, who boasts over 22 million followers on TikTok (in no small part due to showing off his abs in every other video), feels that some creators are taking advantage of the Sway House’s kindness to grow their own platforms and split.

Richards spoke on the situation during an episode of Barstool Sports’ ‘BFFs’ podcast on October 13, claiming that he had at first wanted to help other creators get started by giving them a boost.

“I knew how to pump out a million videos back to back,” he explained. “And I’d do five a day. And then I would see these other kids who were starting to blow up, and I was like, ‘Okay, if I give them a little bit of direction, they could be huge.’”

However, co-host Dave Portnoy noted that sometimes these kinds of relationships can go south — a sentiment that Richards agreed with, sharing his own experiences with stars just trying to use the Sway House.

“There’s so many people that come to us, and they’ll start filming at our house,” he continued. “I think we’ve gotten better at not letting this happen, but they would just use us for videos. They would sleep over, they would always be like, ‘Get in our videos!’”

“The thing that sucks about that is that you don’t really know who’s out to get you anymore and then who’s just really trying to be there, be your homie and just vibe with you,” he added. “That really sucks.”

Richards isn’t the first internet star to make such claims, by far; YouTuber Jake Paul has also infamously accused other creators of using Team 10 to blow up and subsequently “act like they don’t know nobody,” leading to quite a bit of drama in his own realm.

While Richards’ statement has yet to be called out by other TikTokers, it’s not hard to believe that someone would try to piggyback off of someone else’s success in the age of social media fame.
