Streamer Kai Cenat has reached another milestone, this time beating Felix “xQc” Lengyel to take the spot of second most-subbed streamer on Twitch.
Cenat has exploded on Twitch recently. He first made headlines in August after reaching 60,000 subscribers. This shocked a lot of people who felt they had never even heard of the content creator before this. But this was due to two reasons.
The first was Cenat started his career on YouTube, bringing many of his followers with him when he started streaming. He has millions of fans on YouTube, which is why he was able to have such a big following on Twitch despite only being on it for 1.5 years.
The second reason was a lack of support from Twitch, according to some streamers. Asmongold accused Twitch of “racism” for not showcasing the growing streamer although others expressed that Cenat lacked “marketability” due to his language.
Despite the controversy, Cenat continued to closely follow behind xQc in the sub department. Now, however, Cenat has officially surpassed the Juicer.
Cenat was live on September 23 when he officially passed xQc’s sub count. As his viewers went wild, Cenat announced that he was getting a call from his mom.
“Congratulations, son! You’re number one,” she exclaimed.
His mom said that everyone has been so proud of him and what he’s been working on. While he’s only been on Twitch for a year and a half, Cenat has been creating content for a while now.
“I’m so happy to be your mom. I want to let the world know that you’ve been working hard like this. […] They are just finding out. My son works hard. He’s a grinder. Every day, every night. And he gives me the world,” his mom continued.
At this point, Cenat began to tear up. Wiping at his eyes, it was clear that Cenat was feeling emotional about his mom’s praise and happiness. It was a new side to the usually loud and abrasive prankster.
While Cenat has beat xQc, the number one streamer on the subscriber charts is Casimito, a content creator from Brazil. He currently has 138,000 subscribers according to Twitch Tracker. At this time, Cenat has 83.8 thousand and xQc has 82.5 thousand.
