Disguised Toast Criticizes Ninja for His Twitch MasterClass

It’s not surprising that some people will look at the wealth and fame of successful Twitch streamers and wonder if they could do it too. However, while the biggest streamers might live in mansions and drive expensive cars, most never get close to that level.

A few months ago, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins began offering some guidance for a price. In March, he launched a course on MasterClass about how to get started as a streamer. However, not everyone approves of this course, which costs $180 per year with no guarantee that students would experience success in their Twitch careers.


Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang is the latest Twitch star to criticize Ninja’s MasterClass, which some have derided as nothing more than a “cash grab.” He shared his opinions while streaming on August 7. “Your streaming career will never, ever start with you pressing the stream button,” Disguised Toast said to his chat. He went on to make a jab at Ninja’s MasterClass, saying, “I know you paid 200 bucks for Ninja to tell you that. He’s lying to you. Ninja is a liar.”

According to Disguised Toast, a streamer’s career begins well before their first stream. Instead, it begins by mastering a game or starting a YouTube or TikTok channel. This advice makes a lot of sense since doing the first attracts viewers while the other two let content creators cultivate an audience well before their first stream. Disguised Toast doesn’t think an aspiring streamer needs to do all three. However, he believes that content creators need to succeed at one of them before they start streaming on Twitch.

This is not the first time Disguised Toast spoke negatively about Ninja’s course, and he’s not the only one to do so. For example, while reacting to Drew Gooden’s video criticizing the course, Disguised Toast laughingly pointed out that he does the opposite of some of Ninja’s advice about connecting with the audience. Other streamers have given similar pushback regarding Ninja’s ideas on engaging with viewers.

Goode’s video is titled “I took Ninja’s Masterclass, and it ruined my life.” The YouTuber mocks Ninja throughout the 40-minute video, replying sarcastically to many of the lessons and editing in examples of times Ninja broke his own rules. Despite acknowledging that Ninja offers a few pieces of good advice, Gooden seemed unimpressed with the class and questioned the $180 fee. He called the course “underwhelming” and criticized its lack of substance, particularly in the second half. He also pointed out how some of Ninja’s suggestions aren’t practical for a streamer just starting out.

In fairness, Gooden’s video noted that Ninja’s MasterClass offers some helpful information about the equipment and software necessary for streaming on Twitch. Ninja also provided a breakdown of the best setups for different price ranges. However, he didn’t think the course offered enough value to justify the cost.
