Hero Chosen: Erick Garcia Is Streaming Fortnite Now

The response to our Fortnite dream job has been amazing! After reviewing over 5,000 applicants, we’ve found our gamer.

Congratulations to Twitch streamer Erick Garcia! We’ll pay Erick $1,000 to play 50 hours of Fortnite this summer, and he’ll get free high-speed internet for a year along with a sweet router.

Will high-speed internet supercharge his battles?

We’re all curious about how faster internet will affect Erick’s play. To answer this question, Erick will first stream a few hours of Fortnite on his current internet connection. After that, we’ll upgrade his internet connection, and he’ll test his gaming experience with faster speeds. You can follow the action on Erick’s Twitch stream.

Here’s a huge thank you to everyone who applied! We were blown away with how impressive the applicants were, and we wish we could’ve hired a whole team of gamers. Dream job or not, may your battles continue to be epic. And stay tuned for more exciting competitions.
