As we welcome 2022, we should look back and see all that happened in 2021. Sadly not a lot of good happened last year, which we all can reminisce about. Most of us were locked up in our homes, trying to find new ways to pass time, during the lockdown. And if you are anything like me, you spent most of your time either playing games or watching others play and the best place to do the latter is on Twitch. It was a big year for streamers on twitch, especially the female streamers. So today we look back at all the beautiful and talented streamers who came out on top in 2021.
“Pokimane” – Imane Anys
With her 8.5 million followers on Twitch, she is undoubtedly the queen bee. She has been streaming since 2013 and in a span of five years, she has won many accolades and set many benchmarks for all female streamers. From playing games with the likes of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez to collaborating with other famous streamers, the 24-year-old does it all. Best of all she uses her influence to spread positivity, like the Pokimane No Makeup stream, which she did without makeup to promote body positivity and encouraged people to have a positive outlook on their appearances.
“Amouranth” – Kaitlyn Siragusa
Amouranth with her 4.9 million followers on Twitch was perhaps the most famous female streamer in 2021. Unlike other female streamers, her content is targeted strictly toward an adult audience. She became famous thanks to her sexy Cosplay and gave a new height to hot tub streams on twitch, so much so that Twitch created an entire category out of it. What puts Amouranth apart on this list is the number of controversies involving her content, with frequent bans being handed out to her on all her social media platforms.
“Loserfruit” – Kathleen Belsten
Her name might say loser, but she is far from it. One of the most famous streamers from Australia, she has 2.7 million followers on Twitch. She is a true gamer girl in every sense of the word. She is extremely talented and does not shy away from playing games that other streamers might not have even heard of. In the opinion of this humble writer, she takes the cake for 2021.
“LilyPichu” – Lily Ki
LilyPichu is an American streamer of Korean heritage. She is 29 years old and has over 2.4 million followers. She is not only a talented gamer but an artist as well. Whenever she is not busy streaming League of Legends or other video games, she showcases her artistic talents by making art. Her canvas of choice is digital, as she makes most of her drawings on her computer.
“Chicalive” – Maria Lopez
Chicalive is an American streamer from Puerto Rico and has an incredible 2.7 million followers. She is a professional gamer who has participated in many gaming tournaments, particularly in Fortnite. She is also a former member of “TSM” a professional eSports team.
Although she lives in the mainland United States now, she never forgets to feature her Spanish heritage. You can often find her speaking Spanish on the stream and discussing her culture when she isn’t destroying her opponents in Battle Royale games.
From the other side of the Atlantic, we have the British streamer, Sweet Anita, with 1.8 million followers. She is best known for her Fortnite streams, but lately, she has been playing other games. She suffers from Tourette’s syndrome, which results in involuntary twitches and verbal outbursts that are often PG 18 in nature. Her outbursts are extremely funny and you can find hundreds of her clips on YouTube.
