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.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
