There was a point in Whippy’s life where he knew he would “amount to nothing.” Back then, the Australian streamer—still years and years away from a 486,000-strong following on Twitch—couldn’t see anything beyond living in rural New South Wales, paying off a big mortgage, and working a job he didn’t love.
That Whippy, and the one that sat down with Dot Esports late last Wednesday on the eve of his bumper Twitch signing announcementshare one thing—neither can quite believe just how far he’s come since originally going live all those years ago.
On May 29, the now-Brisbane-based star announced his new, exclusive deal with Amazon’s titanic streaming platform, Twitch. The broadcast deal, like many we’ve seen over the years, keeps Whippy tied to the purple-branded site for several years. The contract would be a huge moment in any streamer’s career, but for Whippy it symbolizes something more—he’s finally made something of his life.
