The first Fortnite World Cup has ended, but it has also made the names of its champions famous, especially the champion of the solo mode Kyle 'Bugha' Giersdor. Just overnight and all Fortnite players in the world know the name of this 16-year-old Fortnite pro player. His fame is huge, but that does also mean he can never play Fortnite (or any games at all) the same way again.

This 16-year-old champion has taken home the crown of being the first solo champion of Fortnite, thus winning him an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show – one of the most famous TV show in the US. The fame comes so fast with this 16-year-old Fortnite champion, but it comes with a price, of course.

The Fortnite World Cup tournament has gathered more than two millions of people watching it, thus making this tournament become one of the most viewed esports tournament of all time. After winning the first solo champion title in front of that many viewers, Kyle 'Bugha' Giersdor started to “run into” stream snipers – the thing that famous streamers of the game like Ninja have been so familiar with.

In the most recent stream of Kyle 'Bugha' Giersdor, this streamer showed that he was flooded with streamer snipers. These guys came toward Kyle 'Bugha' Giersdor and danced so that our champion could easily kill them. Although that was pretty much a free win for this streamer, he did not like it at all.

“Guys, do not kill me please,” the champion begged his enemies as he built to get away from them. “What am I playing? This is not good, I’m playing Zombies.”

But that is not the only bad news for Kyle 'Bugha' Giersdor. Although the price money for him is $3 million dollars (more than Rs 2,06 crore), he can actually put $1,553,400 dollars (more than Rs 1,07 crore) in his pocket. He has to pay $1,446,600 dollars as tax for the US government.
