Fresh off his Fortnite World Cup win Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf will be making an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to talk about his victory.

When athletes win major sporting events such as the NBA Finals or the Super Bowl, they tend to make appearances on late-night shows and that’s no different with Bugha.

While the Fortnite World Cup isn’t your traditional sporting event, it featured 100 of the best Fortnite players from around the globe and featured a prize pool larger than many of the other tournaments this year.

Bugha’s win has translated into mainstream fame and he will have a chance to talk about that with Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon when he appears July 29 at 11:35 EST / 10:35 CST.

Pretty much everyone knows about Fortnite in some way or another but now many more are wondering how a player was able to win so much money playing a video game.

Hopefully, Bugha, who is 16 years old, is able to explain to a wider audience how Fortnite is able to open the door to many more opportunities like this.

Famous Fortnite player Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins did an excellent job in bringing Fortnite and Twitch into the mainstream but it’s clear there’s still a lot of work left to be done.

Fortnite and gaming aren’t going anywhere so it’ll be interesting to see if Bugha is able to win over some more fans with his appearance.

No matter what happens, nobody will ever be able to take away his accomplishment at the World Cup and the fact that he’s now in the top 10 of highest-earning esports players after just one event. 

The Tonight Show airs every weeknight and features a different set of guests each day. 

Other guests for Bugha’s appearance include Rachel Brosnahan, Carla Gugino and musical guest Ty Dolla $ign.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
