ASMR has become one of the most popular categories on Twitch and that’s largely due to Kaitlyn “Amouranth” Siragusa.

Amouranth was one of the biggest streamers on Twitch in 2021, known for her adult content, business savvy, and controversial behavior on the streaming platform. She was one of the pioneers of the hot tub meta and was also responsible for the rise of the ASMR and yoga pants meta, both of which got her in trouble multiple times.

Despite the drama surrounding it, ASMR is still one of the biggest streaming categories on the platform. The Streamer Awards decided to celebrate it with its very own award at the first annual show.

ASMR Streamer category at Streamer Awards goes viral after Amouranth wins

It was hard not to take jabs at the ASMR category at the Streamer Awards 2022. Twitch streamer Esfand presented the award, whispering into the microphone to emulate ASMR streamers’ broadcasts.

“Contrary to popular belief, the reason that I’m actually presenting the award for Best ASMR Streamer is not that I have the most-watched hours, it’s because I have a bigger chest than both of the hostesses,” Esfand said.

The four streamers in the category were: Katrina, SkepticalPickle, Foxenkin, and Amouranth. Esfand dramatically opened the envelope near the microphone to reveal the answer, creating some crinkling ASMR for viewers at home.

“Thank you, everybody,” Amouranth whispered. “I’m super proud of my community for voting with one hand.”

While everyone was having fun joking around, there is no denying the serious success Amouranth has had over the past few years. She has over 5 million followers on Twitch, which isn’t even her highest-earning platform. Amouranth has revealed that she makes an incredible amount per month, with most of the money coming from her adult content.

With her new fart jar company up and running, it will be interesting to see what Amouranth thinks of next for 2022.
