Ninja and Ellen played some Fortnite on the show, which was… well, have a look at it yourself.
Tyler “Ninja” Belvins rose to fame earlier this year when he streamed Fortnite with rapper Drake. The stream became the one with the highest concurrent viewer count for an individual streamer. Since then, Ninja has been brushing shoulders with celebrities and has become quite the household name. At E3 this year, he played with Marshmello at the Fortnite Pro-Am tournament and also streamed from Lollapalooza music festival this year. His latest and perhaps the most endearing appearance yet has to be on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Ninja appeared on the show as a guest, where he played the game with Ellen on Xbox. The gameplay was short. Ellen had no idea about the game and was apparently playing for the first time. The game started and she seemed really confused with the controls, but Ninja walked her through everything. While Ellen was trying to figure out how to jump, open parachute, and land, Ninja had already begun farming for resources. Ellen also had a hard time figuring out how to position the camera and watching her screen made me kinda dizzy. When Ninja found some enemies and started shooting, Ellen told him to talk it out with them. Ninja attempted to do that by doing the Infinite Dab, but the other team wasn’t interested and killed him. Now dead, Ninja very patiently walked Ellen through the game and controls. But needless to say, she soon died quickly.
They placed 21st, and Ellen concluded, “You flew in to play Fortnite with me, and I’ve learned nothing.”
Other than this, Ellen and Ninja talked about his streaming schedule and his wife. She also questioned him about his earnings from Twitch (hint: it’s a LOT). You can watch the whole thing form the Ellen DeGeneres Show below.
