Twitch streamers are no strangers to sharing their personal lives online, but xQc shares their credit score with their audience and explains their status.
Streamers are known to share various aspects of their lives with their audiences, but Tic Streamer Felix “xQc” Lengyel may have shared a little too much. In a recent live stream on Twitch, the popular streamer took a look at his credit score and explained why it wasn’t higher.
Twitch viewers are typically taken for a wild ride on most xQc live streams as the game expert moves from game to game. The popular streamer is known to ride a bike through games such as Minecraft, GTA Online, Bloons TD, Chess, and Call of Duty. Beyond just playing games, xQc often reacts to videos and clips from other streamers, but sharing his credit score can be the most personal thing he’s done.
In researching his credit score using the FICO score, xQc posted a “good” score of 718 out of 850 according to the US credit bureaus. After saying his credit score is GG, xQc explained why he’s not perfect and how the lower score ruined his life as a Twitch streamer, like the excessive raids he suffered. According to xQc, a trip to the hospital in her streaming debut in Los Angeles caused her previously pristine credit rating to drop significantly.
Before moving to the United States, xQc was a Canadian citizen and was not used to paying hospital bills. The Twitch streamer said he “thought it was like in Canada” and that’s why he forgot to pay the bill that impacted his credit rating. The longer an invoice goes unpaid, the more likely it is to affect your credit score and it didn’t take long for xQc to experience billing issues that affected their credit.
After xQc moved several times for security reasons, he tried to buy blinds for his new home two years after the LA hospital visit and he failed a credit check. Although streamer Twitch had the funds to cover the roughly $ 3,000 in blinds, the trade was halted due to xQc’s history of unpaid bills. After learning that he had failed the credit check, xQc assured the seller that he could afford the blinds. The seller told xQc that the purchase should be made by other methods following the credit check.
Because xQc has remained one of the most popular Twitch streamers for years now, some viewers were surprised that xQc’s credit wasn’t higher. Although xQc admitted that his credit score had exploded due to the hospital bill, xQc continues to make enough money from donations, subscriptions, etc. of Twitch to cover such emergencies in the future. Although some viewers may have higher credit scores than the Tic streamer, some have gone so far as to characterize xQc’s credit as bad.
