Who is Dr DisRespect? Net worth, settings, and more

Everything you need to know about the self-proclaimed two-time world champion

Dr DisRespect

Guy ‘Dr DisRespect’ Beahm is one of the world’s biggest streamers 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 his fictional Champions Club playing battle royale games such as PUBG and Call of Duty: Warzone. 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 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.

On March 12, 2020, The Doc became the latest Twitch star to pen an exclusivity deal with the streaming platform. The details of the deal, which lasts for two years, have not been officially disclosed, but it will almost certainly be in the millions of dollars.

Despite this deal, Dr DisRespect was banned from Twitch on June 26, reportedly on a permanent basis. Neither Twitch or Dr DisRespect has confirmed why, but in an interview with PC Gamer, the Doc confirmed he will not be returning to the platform. However he’s also said he’s “not interested” in exclusives and might stream independently in the future.

On August 6, he made his return to streaming on YouTube Gaming. A teaser of his iconic Lamborghini sat in a gas station attracted a peak audience of 330,000 – but his actual comeback stream followed the next day on August 7.

That stream attracted over half a million viewers, who piled in to hear The Doc speak on his ban. However, the streamer simply told fans he still didn’t know why he was banned and that he believes he’s done nothing to warrant it.

Here we answer the most frequently asked questions about one of the funniest streamers out there, 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 the streamer often wildly exaggerating the figures when it comes to his finances.

Dr DisRespect’s net worth comes from a variety of different income streams including streaming donations and subscriptions, ad revenue, merchandise sales, and sponsorship deals.

There are arguments that his net worth could be much higher than that due to his Twitch exclusivity deal, but that’s now up in the air since he was permanently banned from the platform.

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 around $3.5 million.

During his final month on Twitch, the Doc had well over 30,000 subscribers. These paid subscribers would see Dr DisRespect earn in the region of $30,000 – $35,000 a month. That equates to around $300,000 a year just from subscribers, but obviously that’s not on the cards at the moment with his platform ban. That estimate didn’t take into account things like ad revenue and donations, which likely saw him earn well over half a million dollars a year from streaming alone.

The Doc also usually posts stream highlights and VODs 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 usually uploads around four times a week, so over the space of a year the Doc could be making around $200,000 alone.

Then you’ve got to look at the multiple sponsorship deals the Doc has with big brands such as G Fuel, Turtle Beach, Scuf, and Roccat. 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 his streaming career.

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 his “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.

What is Dr DisRespect’s setup?

  • Monitor: ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q
  • Keyboard: Roccat Vulcan 121
  • Mouse: Roccat Kain 200
  • Headset: Turtle Beach Atlas Aero
  • Gaming PC: DigitalStorm Custom PC
  • Chair: Maxnomic Commander S

Dr DisRespect has a high-spec setup for his streams that features quite a lot of products from two of his main sponsors – Roccat and Turtle Beach.

The centrepiece for The Two-Time’s setup is his new custom gaming PC. Put together by DigitalStorm, it contains top of the range components from a number of different manufacturers and set him back a cool $10,000 – although he does slightly exaggerate the price a tad in his reveal video below. Well, it wouldn’t be The Doc without some bravado, would it?

Dr Disrespect’s monitor is a staple of the streaming community, an ASUS ROG Swift PG258Q.

Is Dr DisRespect actually the two-time?

In amongst Dr DisRespect’s many nicknames is one that often confuses newer viewers to his streams. He often refers to himself as ‘The Two-Time Champion’ or ‘Mr. Two-Time.’ But what is he actually champion of?

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.

Speaking of proof, there is actually little to back up Dr DisRespect’s claim that he did in fact win these titles. ESPN seem to think he did, but others have found evidence to the contrary.

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.

In an interview given to the Washington Post on July 16, Dr DisRespect says his team “have been working really hard” on the show and that he’s “excited for the next steps.”

is there a dr disrespect book?

It’s not out yet, but Dr DisRespect is writing a book. The comedic memoir, which is called Violence. Speed. Momentum. A Memoir, will be available in all good shops from spring 2021. An audio book, published by Simon & Schuster Audio, read by the two-time himself will also be available.

The book will be written in the same style as Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy Anchorman memoir, so expect lots of humorous tales about how the Doc became a champion.

Dr DisRespect controversy

With his larger-than-life personality, Dr DisRespect has been responsible for some of the funniest moments in Twitch history. However, his overconfident nature can sometimes see him cross the line into being controversial and even result in him getting banned.

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 Twitch ban?

Yes, Dr DisRespect was banned from Twitch in June 2020. The ban appears to be on a permanent basis, but the reason for why has not been disclosed yet. Even The Doc himself has not been informed by Twitch why his channel was banned.

The last few minutes of Dr DisRespect’s final stream before his ban saw him act quite strange, reassuring his following that “we’ll get through this” and claiming that “life is weird right now” before cutting off his stream abruptly. However in a recent interview, he claims he had just broken character while thinking about the state of 2020 and the coronavirus pandemic.

While we don’t know what caused the ban, we do know that the Doc won’t be returning to Twitch in the future and that he’s considering legal action. His future is still yet to be decided, but he’s excited to create ‘Doc 3.0’ onto a streaming platform near you soon.

Is Dr DisRespect streaming on YouTube Gaming?

Yes, Dr DisRespect’s first stream since his permanent Twitch ban was held on YouTube Gaming on August 6.

While it didn’t actually feature The Doc himself and was just a teaser for his actual comeback on August 7,  it still raked in well over 300,000 viewers.

His actual first broadcast with him on-screen raked in over 500,000 viewers.

While Dr DisRespect is now streaming on YouTube Gaming, he is not believed to be under any kind of exclusivity deal with the platform.
