Lifestyle and esports organization 100 Thieves has signed Austin Show as a content creator and collaborator for the brand.
Austin currently hosts one of the most successful programs on Twitch, a mix of reality TV and streaming called “Love or Host”. The show is often, but not always, geared towards romance in a sort of streamer version of The Bachelor. During broadcasts, the Twitch chat gets to decide which suitors are eliminated. Some notable contestants on his shows have been the Botez sisters Alexandra and Andrea, Zak “Skeppy” Ahmed, and Imane “Pokimane” Anys. .
While Austin is known mostly for Love or Host, he started his streaming career with Runescape. In 2013 Austin went by the name “RajjPatel.” The moniker was coined by childhood friends, many of whom were of Indian descent. Additionally, he would speak in a fake Indian accent to continue the image of the character he had created. In June of 2020, Austin announced that he would be retiring the character and changing his name to Austin Show.
