YouTuber ‘Typical Gamer’ and SoaR Gaming Twitch streamer and YouTuber ‘Thief’ have won the second running of the KEEMSTAR ‘Friday Fortnite’ celebrity tournament.

They beat the Team SoloMid professional Fortnite player duo of ‘Daequan’ and ‘Hamlinz’ in an epic, two-game Grand Final, securing the entirety of the $10,000 prize.

Since Typical Gamer and SoaR Thief had made it to the Grand Final having won the Winners Bracket, they only needed to win one match to become champions. However, Daequan and Hamlinz won the first match handedly, resetting the bracket for a second match.


The winner-take-all match was a slow but very tight affair, as both teams kept getting clutch kills and keeping the pressure on each other.

Thief and Daequan got eliminated at the same time, putting Hamlinz and Typical Gamer in a head-to-head for the final few kills. 

However, the early lead in kills that Typical Gamer and Thief had gotten was just enough to push them over the top and give them the ‘Friday Fortnite’ championship.

Sponsored by popular YouTube Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and UMG, the second running of the ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournament on May 18th featured some of the biggest names of the online gaming and content creation communities.


Members of FaZe Clan, Team SoloMid, The Sidemen, OpTic Gaming, 100 Thieves, and a host of other big YouTubers and Twitch streamers such as Ninja, MrBeast, Logan Paul, and more all competed for a piece of the massive $10,000 prize pool. 

Last week’s ‘Friday Fortnite’ champions, 100 Thieves streamer ‘Nickmercs’ and Luminosity Gaming’s ‘SypherPK,’ were back to defend their title but were shockingly eliminated in the first round.
