After a slip by Ninja on stream and teasing by the content creator himself, 100 Thieves finally came out with an announcement. Popular Twitch streamer and content creator Jack “CouRageJD” Dunlop will join 100 Thieves. He joins the organization’s other fellow content creators Noah “NoahJ456” J and Rachel “Valkyrae” Hofsetter.
“We’re thrilled to officially welcome CouRageJD to 100 Thieves as the third creator for our content house,” 100 Thieves said in an announcement. “With a background in pro gaming and casting, CouRage brings an extremely unique charisma and dynamic to our team. We’re beyond excited to have him part of 100 Thieves!”
The well-known streamer had already been living in the organization’s content creator house prior to this announcement. 100 Thieves CEO Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag and Valkyrae were his other housemates. During a stream last week, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins had also briefly leaked that CouRageJD would be joining the North American esports organization.
Ninja tried to backtrack on this initial statement after notification by other streamers that it wasn’t public information yet. However, this led fans of the popular streamer to connect this to CouRage’s future announcement that was teased on Twitter.
Ninja also then addressed the situation of NICKMERCS leaving the esports organization due to what seemed like contract problems. “That’s so weird, right? Because like NICKMERCS is just as big or a little bit bigger than CouRage,” Ninja said. “But CouRage recently signed with 100 Thieves. Clearly, I don’t think Jack would do that if it wasn’t a great org with great contracts, so maybe he just wanted to leave.”
Nadeshot once said he wanted to add two more content creators to the content house. With CouRageJD being added, who else do you think will be a likely addition? Want to keep up with all of the latest Fortnite news and content? Keep track on our Fortnite page!
