Camp Knut continues to create feel-good stories. Following the appearance of Icelandic strongman Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson on One True King's fitness-oriented streaming event, the Game of Thrones actor has experienced impressive growth on Twitch. According to Björnsson's statistics on TwitchTracker, he's accumulated almost seventy-thousand followers in the past two weeks, and has maintained overall higher viewer averages since collaborating with Matthew "Mizkif" Rinaudo
It points to the event being a success, considering one of the biggest reasons the OTK streamer Mizkif started the event was to promote fitness to his community and empower fitness-related content creators. "It just feels good to be able to do something, and it's a win for everybody," Mizkif stated to his audience. "We get healthier, you guys get motivated, Knut is a 40,000-Andy — it's nice."
Fitness streamer Knut Spildrejorde — the namesake and person taking the lead in training for the gym livestreams — has also been enjoying massive growth since the event started. He has consistently maintained five-figure streaming-averages throughout the duration of Camp Knut, and has additionally gained more than 100,000 followers. "You know what? It’s hard to put it into words," Knut stated in a stream. "I don’t expect it to be 27,000 people watching me when I’m home. I don’t have any expectations of that. It’s a big thing right now, but it feels f*cking good."
Camp Knut is a streaming event on Twitch mostly featuring members of the content creation organization OTK, and has featured fitness personalities like Knut and Björnsson. The latter is a competitive strongman that has won several international competitions. He is most famous to the public for acting as Gregor Clegane (nicknamed "The Mountain") in the HBO series Game of Thrones for five seasons. He has streamed sporadically since early-2020.
