Apparently, a lot of Twitch watchers are hopeless romantics. Wilbur Soot, whose actual name is William Gold, paired with gamer Niki (aka Nihachu) on the virtual dating game show “Rajjchelor,” and their fans want to know how things are going between them.
Does this pair ever meet in real life, or is it just a virtual one? An answer has been found, and reddit is to thank for it.
Do Wilbur and Niki still have a relationship?
According to a recent comment on a Reddit thread that’s four months old, the online stars may never have been an item.
“Another user commented, “I suspect that they were never officially together, as Niki stated they were only friends during her 12-hour stream on June 10.” Devoted to one another and patiently awaiting the right time.”
After meeting on “Rajjchelor,” the two seemed ready to spend time together in the days that followed. “On one of her streams someone questioned Niki, ‘What are you and Wilbur?’ and she responded, “No one knows,” a redditor posted in February. She’s probably crazy about him and just waiting for him to make the first move and ask her out.
Several supporters gave reasons for their want to see the two influences get together. One fan said, “The stuff they do is some of my favorite content because it is so wonderfully lovely.” Also, “she appears a lot happier around Will,” I’ve thought to myself while watching Nikki’s streams since before the “Rajjchelor.”
A second shipper chimed in, “Seeing them together gave me hope again after a particularly trying period of my life. They look like they’re made for one other, and I hope the continual attention from fans doesn’t drive them crazy.”
The dating scene on Twitch is, to put it mildly, complex
As reported in 2018, professional gamer Ninja, who has 14.7 million followers on the live-streaming service, had to cease playing with female broadcasters due to the speculations it would incite.
While he was immersed in a game of Fortnite, he stated, “I figured the last thing I need is any of that junk floating around.” To clarify, “I’m referring to the drama and the silly YouTube video that would be generated due of the playing.”
Next, Ninja spoke on his typical experience with online dating. “Whenever I get the chance to play with another female streamer, we always end up laughing and making jokes. And then there’s this viral video of a “Ninja flirting with so-and-so and JGhosty becoming irritated.” “the 29-year-old said about his wife of almost three years, Jessica Blevins.
In an interview with Polygon, the YouTuber explained his decision to only team up with male gamers. That wasn’t Jessica at all, he said. “The incident was completely unrelated to her. So, that was me being like, “I adore our relationship,” and “No, I’m not even going to put you through that.”
Moreover, Ninja said, “Not a single female player or streamer on Twitch has spoken out against the current state of affairs. To be perfectly frank, I believe… To put it simply, it’s a matter of respect.”
