Remember how, just the other day, we told you about how gaming is now the world’s most popular form of entertainment? Well, that got us thinking about some of the sexiest professional gamers out there, which then made us stalk a bunch of hot Instagram accounts — with Kat Gunn’s being at the top of that list.
A super sexy gamer who gets paid hundreds of thousands per year to dominate on the video game controller, Kat Gunn — who might be best-known as her gamer tag name, “Mystik” — rose to fame after winning the second season of WCG Ultimate Gamer on the Syfy Channel, then competed in the Championship Gaming Series, which aired on DirecTV. Oh, and, as we mentioned above, she’s got a bunch of hot Instagram pictures that make us adore her even more! Just take a look below.
Still just 30 years old, Kat is one of the top gamers in the entire industry, regularly streaming on Twitch.TV as a member of the professional gaming team Team EnVyUs. Kat Gunn is so popular and good at her gaming career that, back in 2016, she was recognized by the Guinness World Records 2016 Gamer’s Edition as the highest earning female gamer on the planet, claiming that she’s earned $122,000 since 2007. That’s a hell of a lot of cash for gaming!
Speaking with Team-Dignitas, Kat Dunn described what it’s like to be a pro gamer and actually be able to earn six figures for the career she’s dominated.
Did you ever think that your content would be backed by a company or sponsor?
KatGunn: “I never thought gaming could be a career. I’ve grown up in gaming and Esports wasn’t even a coined term until the last 5-10 years. Growing up I never thought that video games would be my main career. When you can make a living off of your passions that is just an amazing unicorn effect in itself. Doing this is definitely nothing I could foresee.”
What are the perks to working with a professional team?
KatGunn: “I would say that having readily available sponsors is huge. When you are representing yourself it is really hard to attract a sponsor just for you because they want the numbers, they want certain things to come from you. When you are on a team it makes it easier for a sponsor to come on board because they are representing a wide variety of things, which is very attractive to a sponsor.”
In your opinion, what is the best part about being a video game streamer?
KatGunn: “The best part about being a video game streamer is being able to make a career out of it. Before Twitch came out it really was about being super good at a game and trying to go to competitions. Back then making it into the top three was the only way you could really make up the cost of going to the event. Having something like Twitch around and being able to not just be a competitive gamer, you can be a well rounder gamer, an entertainer, a speedrunner, or any other variety of niches. YouTube brought that on with PewDiePie and now Twitch is doing that so you can get involved in the gaming scene.”
Competitive, successful and sexy as hell, we can’t help but fawn all over the hot Instagram pics of Kat Dunn. To see more of her, head on over to her Instagram account to find more from the gaming babe.
