It’s common knowledge by now that Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has pretty healthy bank account. However, he left some of his fellow streamers stunned when he revealed his “weirdest flex” during a game of Fortnite which highlights just how impressive Ninja’s net worth must be.
While farming up in Dirty Docks with teammates Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar, Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo, and Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop, Ninja wondered if the squad wanted to hear about a bizarre situation he has found himself in that involved his two dogs and a very expensive television.
“You wanna hear a weird flex?” the Mixer streamer asks. “We’ve got people working on our bathrooms upstairs, remodelling them, and we don’t want our dogs to get involved. So we have every bit of the house gated up, but then we ran out of gates. So we’re using a 60 inch TV to block them in.” This led to raptures of laughter from Ninja’s three teammates and disbelief from viewers.
Although Ninja’s viewership figures have been significantly lower since he made the switch from Twitch to Mixer, his profile as the world’s most famous gamer has continued to grow. When you’ve got sponsorship deals with Adidas and Red Bull, your own book, and are featuring in a movie with Ryan Reynolds, you can afford to dish out the odd flex every now and again, even if they are slightly weird.
While Ninja continues to stream frequently, all these additional opportunities outside of streaming appear to have become more available to him since leaving Twitch. Ninja even said this week that Twitch “wouldn’t budge” when he asked for more freedom during contract negotiations with the platform.
You would think he made the right choice if he’s got a spare 60 inch TV lying around..
