Co-owner of 100 Thieves and one of YouTube’s most well-known broadcasters, Rachell “Valkyrae” Hofstetter has more than 3.8 million subscribers to her channel.
In reality, she defeated celebrities like TimTheTatMan and Nickmercs to win “Content Creator of the Year” at the 2020 Game Awards. She is now making her second appearance to give the Awards.
The Game Awards are the equivalent of the Academy Awards for the video game industry, honouring the best and brightest of the sector’s releases in categories like Best Performance, Best Narrative, and the highly sought-after Game of the Year, among many others.

“Can’t wait for this!” one fan replied.
“BIG, BIG W,” another exclaimed.
“That’s my streamer mother!” another joked.
As previously mentioned, this is a big step for Valkyrae, who notably took home the 2020 Game Awards’ trophy for Content Creator of the Year. It’s unclear which segment Valkyrae will be presenting this year; she might be presenting a single award, or might be around for multiple parts of the broadcast.
