Bingo Caller quits to play Bingo all day and earns 4 times as much
A former bingo caller who quit her job to live-stream herself playing video games for six hours a day now earns £3,000 a month.
Amy Bayliss from Solihull, West Midlands has quadrupled her income by letting fans pay to watch her play games such as Warframe and Borderlands 2 on the Twitch streaming site, where she 5,000 subscribers.
Amy, who has been an enthusiastic gamer since she was five, insists that her live streaming is innocent and if men can do it and make money from it, then why can’t she, without the threat of sexist comments.
She said: ‘People assume whenever women are on a camera online, they must be doing something sexual, but Twitch isn’t Tinder. We don’t go online to be harassed and even if there are women looking for sexual attention, it shouldn’t matter.
‘A lot of male gamers complain that women are ‘stealing subscribers’ by showing cleavage while we game – but who cares? Women should be able to do what they want as long as they aren’t harming anyone.
She says that there is nothing sexual to her live streams: ‘I sit in my T-shirt, play video games and have banter with whoever is watching me.
‘Most of my viewers are men aged from 25 to 50 plus. They can comment on my live stream and interact with me. There shouldn’t be anything weird about it just because I’m a woman. Some have called me a slut, or constantly called me beautiful, but if that happens, I just block them.’
