Ninja and Airwaks will meet at the Fortnite World Cup Celebrity Pro-AM
Epic Games has announced the duos for the Celebrity Pro-AM at the Fortnite World Cup Finals.
50 duos consisting of pro players and celebrities are competing for part of the $3 million prize pool for charity. The lineup includes the reuniting of previous Pro-AM champions.
The Celebrity Pro-AM will take place on Friday, July 26. The 50 duos will take over the stage and compete in different rounds. The duo that comes out on top will get $1 million for the charity of their choosing.
Celebrity Pro-AM winners reunited
Tyler "Ninja" Blevins and Marshmello won the 2018 Pro-AM in Los Angeles, California. This year, Solary player Karim “Airwaks” Benghalia and DJ RL Grime took the golden pickaxe. Both duos are returning to the stage and looking to crown themselves as the first two-time winners.
Neither Ninja nor Airwaks are playing in the Fortnite World Cup after failing to qualify. All eyes are on this duo but there’s a strong possibility that a third duo takes the title.
Who else is playing in the Celebrity Pro-AM?
This event will reunite a broad variety of celebrities and pro players. 13-year-old deaf streamer Soleil “Ewok” Wheeler is teaming up with singer and actor Jordan Fisher. Benjamin “DrLupo” Lope is partnering up with popular DJ Sigala. Turner "Tfue" Tenney is playing with Canadian rapper Nav.
100 Thieves' Jack “CouRage” Dunlop, T1's Jung "SinOoh" Sin-woo, FaZe Clan's Nick “NickMercs” Kolcheff, and Timothy “TimTheTatman” Betar will also attend the event.
NBA player Aaron Gordon, former N’Sync member Joey Fatone, actor Sarunas Jackson, Brazillian comedian Bruno Sutter, and NHL player J.T. Brown are some of the celebrities taking part in the competition.
The Celebrity Pro-AM brings together celebrities and pro player for a good cause. So far, this event has raised $6 million for charity and will raise $3 million more at the Fortnite World Cup.
