After baiting Lachlan into giving them a spot in his Fortnite Fashion Show finals, Ali-A and SypherPK teamed back up and took their routine to a whole new level to bag themselves the top prize in the $10,000 event.

With Fortnite Chapter 2 lacking in updates and new content from Epic Games, YouTubers and streamers have come up with the idea of fashion shows. As the name suggests, these content creators give fellow players and fans the chance to show off their Fortnite cosmetics in a chance to claim bragging rights.

Perhaps the biggest to date has come from Australian YouTuber Lachlan as he ran a $10,000 fashion show that even had qualifiers. One team of qualifiers, Ali-A and SypherPK, managed to make the grand finals in surprising fashion but they took things a little bit more seriously when the big money was on the line.

Recapping his and Sypher’s glory, Ali-A uploaded a highlight video of the event – showing off some behind-the-scenes footage of the pair coming up with their routines in order to win.

Going back and forth between the rounds, the eventual winning duo told a story using their skins, emotes, and even in-game items – keeping the spooky theme from their qualifying entry that saw Ali-A turned into a witch and back again. 

In the end, even though they’d taken the lead for a few rounds, the pair had to go all-in in a head-to-head decider with another team. Keeping with the theme that got them there, they told another story about a witch and her jelly monster sidekick – blowing away the judges and the competition.

Even though he and Sypher took home the top prize, Ali-A revealed that he wouldn’t be keeping it for himself – deciding to split it between the other finalists as he “never entered for the money.”

However, he and his partner will always have bragging rights, especially as they didn’t put all that much preparation in before the show got underway. What will they do next? Will they defend their crown? Only time will tell.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
