Guy ‘Dr DisRespect’ Beahm is a Twitch streamer whose larger-than-life character and entertaining style of streaming has made him one of the most followed on the platform.
Before becoming a popular streamer, Beahm was a multiplayer map designer for one of the Call of Duty developers, Sledgehammer Games, and was responsible for designing many of the maps in Advanced Warfare. He later made the jump to streaming full time, creating the satirically arrogant and confident alter-ego of Dr DisRespect.
Dr DisRespect, who is often also referred to as ‘Dr D’, ‘The Doc’ or ‘The Two-Time Champion’, mainly streams himself in the Champions Club playing battle royale games such as PUBG and Apex Legends. He is the creator of the ‘Triple Threat Challenge’, a test of gaming skill in which he attempts to win rounds in three different battle royale or FPS titles back-to-back in as little time as possible. He often invites other streamers or professional players to take on the challenge.
The production of Dr DisRespect’s streams are far more elaborate than that of most top streamers and this value is one of the main aspects that make him stand out. During introductions, interludes and outros in his stream, he frequently uses green screens and varying camera angles to place him in different vehicles, locations or scenarios that all tie in with the character’s world. One of the most commonly used is in the driving seat of a red Lamborghini Diablo.
The Dr DisRespect character is focused around being the ultimate gamer and it’s not unusual to hear him bragging about his achievements, gaming skill, or even physical fitness. His brash persona often leads to him calling out other streamers and pro gamers, as well as some eccentric reactions and bizarre moments.
In 2017, he won the Streamer of the Year award at the Esports Awards, giving a very out-of-character, emotional acceptance speech on collecting his trophy.
He then lived up to his nickname of ‘The Two Time’ by winning the award again in 2019.
Here we answer the most frequently asked questions about one of the funniest streamers on Twitch, Dr DisRespect.
What is Dr DisRespect’s net worth?
Dr DisRespect’s net worth is believed to be in the region of $3.5 million, according to naibuzz.com, despite some lighthearted evidence to the contrary in the clip below.
This comes from a variety of different income streams including Twitch subscribers, ad revenue, merchandise sales, and sponsorship deals.
How much does Dr DisRespect earn?
Dr DisRespect earns anywhere between £500,000 and $1 million a year, but has an overall net worth estimated to be in the region of $3.5 million.
At the time of writing, the Doc has over 25,000 subscribers, with around 9,000 of those being paid subs. These paid subscribers would see Dr DisRespect earn in the region of $25,000 – $30,000 a month. That equates to around $300,000 a year just from subscribers. This doesn’t take into account additional Twitch revenue, such as ad revenue and donations, which would likely see him earn well over half a million dollars a year from streaming alone.

He has also claimed that Twitch paid him to remain on the streaming platform after he had apparently been approached by rival site, Mixer. He says that the company offered him more money to remain on Twitch than Mixer offered Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek to leave. These claims have not been verified, however.
The Doc also posts vlogs and highlights of his streams to his YouTube channel, which has over a million subscribers. It’s likely he’ll earn around $1,000 per video with the level of viewership he gets on the platform. He uploads around four times a week, so over the space of a year Dr D could be making around $200,000 alone from YouTube revenue.
Then you’ve got to look at the multiple sponsorship deals the Doc has with big brands such as G Fuel, Turtle Beach, and Razer. These companies will be paying a pretty sizeable fee to get the endorsement of such an iconic and recognisable streamer. These deals undoubtedly contribute greatly to his overall earnings, however the exact amount he is paid isn’t disclosed.
When you add all of this together, you can see how over the Doc has amassed such an impressive net worth during a streaming career which began almost four years ago.
How tall is Dr DisRespect?
Dr DisRespect stands at just over two metres (6ft8in) tall.
The towering streamer likes to make sure everyone is aware of his physical prowess and often reminds viewers both of his height and that he has a “37 inch vertical leap.”
Back in his younger years, the Doc used his height (and his vertical leap) to his advantage as a basketball player. There is some rather grainy old footage out there of what appears to be a young Dr D tearing up the court in his college days, and he seems to be pretty decent.

Dr DisRespect claims that he is the two-time ‘Blockbuster Video Game World Champion’ after winning back-to-back NBA Jam tournaments in 1993 and 1994. You remember those ones… right?
Although they’re achievements most wouldn’t brag about all that much, the Doc likes to often remind people of his gaming prowess and these titles are the – erm – proof of that.
Is there a Dr DisRespect TV show?
On December 6 2019, Dr DisRespect announced that he had signed a deal with Skybound Entertainment to make a TV based on his character.
Skybound, who are the production company behind shows like The Walking Dead, have begun early stage talks with The Doc about what kind of approach they are going to take.
There are few details at the moment, but what we do know that it will be something of an origin story, framed around how the Two-Time rose in popularity to become the well-known celebrity streamer he is today.

At E3 2019, the Doc did his first ever IRL stream. It featured him walking around the convention meeting fans and talking to fellow gamers, developers and streamers in the usual comical fashion. Part of the stream saw the Doc enter a public bathroom at the event, where he continued to stream despite it being illegal to do so.
Twitch took action and banned his channel for two weeks. Breaking character to apologise for the incident, the man behind Dr DisRespect, Guy Beahm, said in a statement: “We [Beahm and his cameraman] became a little blind in what’s OK and what’s not OK. We had no ill intentions and I feel that was pretty obvious if you watched the entire thing.”
Dr DisRespect’s fame and divisive nature has also seen him become a target. During a stream in 2018, his house was shot at from a passing car, forcing him to drop out of character and end the broadcast. The clip of the incident is one of the most watched ever on Twitch, with upwards of 3.6 million views.
Dr DisRespect’s entire appeal is his confident, outspoken and often ridiculous persona. But even when it lands him in hot water, his massive audience always seems to come back.
