    Sydney yelling "eff you Connor" while flashing the bird after Garnt won made me laugh hard.

    The problem with Connor being the Villian is he's too likeable I ended up rooting for him in all his matches

    When I saw this my mind just went like there are 16 - 18 thousand people all over the world competing in this tournament hosted by MrBeast. And conner will be in practice months before announcement so he could be the bad guy. And when the top 128 will be come we see conner and his 11 secret henchmen join(part of the 128) and he has special power being the bad guy. Like whenever he loses he just takes the spot of on of his secret henchmen. Or talking to the opponent directly or having the power to come back after being defeated in the final rounds and always being the first to go and such. And he makes such a big deal of him being the bad guy everyone will know him. And when he wins he takes the top 3 prizes out of the top 5 and do something good and something chaotic with it. And somehow that prodigy from that whealthy school and background which you defeated comes back in the semifinals or finals and be conners ultimate enemy.

    You guys have been the best podcast ever! I've been watching every episode from the first one (around 1-2 per week) and it's always so fucking enjoyable. To be honest it feels like you're the "anime friends" me and probably many others watching were hoping to meet someday. Also this video was, so far one of the fucking best so far (although, like Garnt, I'm a sucker for tournament arcs haha). I don't know if you guys are still checking out comments on old viedeos but keep at it! ^^ Also this is the first podcast (and so far the only one) that I've ever actively watched/listened to. PS.: This video made me realise that my friday night entertainment is just Thrash Taste, so I finally supported you guys on patreon! To all the viewers, if you guys, also feel the same enthusiasm as me to watch these boys' podcast, then go support them on patreon if you can ;)
