Meet 'DoubleScuffed', the self-proclaimed Twitch boomer who's been gracing screens since the ancient era of 2021. With a repertoire that spans from gaming to YouTube reactions, they've somehow managed to carve out a niche in the vast digital wilderness of the terminally online. Oh, and did we mention they're all about that community vibe? Yeah, they've got a Discord called FOREVER SCUFFED where you can join the party and chat about... well, whatever floats your digital boat (as long as it doesn't violate TOS). <br><br> Originally hailing from Argentina but calling South Africa home for longer than some viewers have been alive, 'DoubleScuffed' is like a fine wine – only getting better with age but mostly bottom-shelf and hangover inducing. Some say he used to be a big deal in the local music scene, spending most of their youth in touring bands, but now they're all about entertaining the masses from behind a screen, switching out stage lights for a ring light from Takealot. And get this – they've even dabbled with AI tools to streamline their content creation in terms of editing and live stream goofs. Because who needs real human creativity when you've got algorithms, right? Just kidding, they're keeping it ethical-ish. Fluent in both English and Spanish, 'DoubleScuffed' has become the unofficial ambassador of online entertainment, bringing together viewers from across the globe. It's like a United Nations meeting, but with more memes and fewer resolutions. <br><br> But hey, let's not get it twisted – 'DoubleScuffed' isn't in it for the fame or fortune. Nah, they're just here for the love of the game... and maybe making a few friends along the way (read: being bullied by Mods). So buckle up and join 'DoubleScuffed' on their digital escapades, where the sarcasm flows as freely as the Bit donations.

GAME SHOW: WHAT'S IN THE BOX

This game can be a lot of fun if the audience have the right attitude. Fill boxes with random items, for added fun, add one high value item to each box. Each contestant on stage gets a box, they must feel what they are holding and try give clues, when the audience guesses what they had in mind, they pull the item out. If both are correct, the host can throw the item to the audience member. If wrong, both do a risk challenge.
