Ninja Will Be on The Ellen Degeneres Show Today
As if his fans don't get to watch him enough, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins will be on network television this afternoon. The most-viewed streamer on Twitch is appearing on the most-watched talk show, Ellen Degeneres, which is set to air on Friday at 4 p.m.
Ninja took a private jet across the country on Tuesday to fly across the country to California for the filming of the show. Ninja's wife and manager, Jessica 'JGhosty” Blevins began dropping hints about his big appearance on Instagram earlier this week.
JGhosty made the big reveal through an Instagram post that showed an image that looks like Ninja's dressing room sign at the Ellen show. The image had over 2,000 comments in less than 24 hours. Her Instagram account has more than 1 million followers.
So far, Ninja and JGosty have remained tight-lipped about what happened during filming, careful not to reveal any of Ellen's antics before the show airs. Did Ellen take the opportunity to show off her Fortnite skills alongside the game's most popular streamer? No one knows yet but it is sure to be all over the internet as soon as it is released.
Appearing on the Ellen show is yet another sign of Ninja's transition from streaming star to pop culture icon. The 27-year-old's face has been widespread across mass media this year including an ESPN Magazine cover and multiple televised interviews. His popularity now reaches much farther than his already epic Twitch account of more than 11 million followers.
