Famous for his extravagant and luxurious lifestyle, Instagram influencer Bezlikiy surprised the Esports world with its first-ever reality show. As a big fan of the game called Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO), this sparked a brilliant idea in his mind that would later make a mark in the history books.
Professional Gaming has become extremely popular in recent years. Now with an even larger audience ad fanbase, gamers have become especially popular. Garnering massive fan bases across the globe, these individuals broadcast their games in the hopes of becoming internet sensations. Taking advantage of this popularity, Bezlikiy decided to kick it up a notch by starting an online reality show on one of the most famous Livestream media called Twitch.
What is a Reality Show?
Reality shows gained popularity back in the 90s with the first reality show entitled “The Real World.” This paved the way for reality shows to gain the spotlight in entertainment media. The debut of “The Big Brother” made reality shows’ popularity rise dramatically, with 54 countries from around the globe joining in on the rising trend.
What happens inside?
The cast’s personal lives become a product of entertainment for the masses. With the players living together under one roof, everything that happens is live-streamed on Twitch. Of course, there are limits as to what can be shown online, but the point is that every detail that happens inside the house becomes content. The audience tune in on Twitch to witness their favorite streamers interact, live, and play together to showcase to the world what it’s like living as a professional gamer.
Lives of the cast
With their lives broadcast online, this is a great opportunity for them to be a little bit more personal with their fans. With all the necessary equipment installed and set up, they can showcase to everyone watching the lives they live AFK (away from keyboard). Not only will this serve as an avenue for them to further expand their fanbase, it will also be a chance to show their daily routines, lifestyles, and what it takes to be a professional in the field of gaming.
The audience’s entertainment
As this will be broadcast on Twitch, known to be one of the most famous video streaming platforms for gaming and gamers, people can witness their favorite streamers living their lives. A deeper view into what it takes to be a professional gamer is now made possible through this medium. Viewers will be able to get a glimpse into the players’ lives for a specific period. Gaming communities from around the globe have been creating a buzz with the excitement that this show brings.
The world of esports has been slowly making its mark. With the current hype that the upcoming show has received so far, it is safe to say that this will be one that gamers from across the globe can enjoy. The debut of the first reality show led to the birth of the reality shows that are famous today, so this one will surely pave the way for more esports content in the years to come.
