1 min read

Streamer Adin Ross recently shared that he lost out on a bid for a luxury Miami mansion, with the winning bid coming from football legend Lionel Messi. Adin Ross is a popular streamer who gained prominence by playing NBA 2K on Twitch in 2019 and is known for various high-profile streaming events, including a simulated “interview” with Kim Jong Un.

In March 2023, Adin Ross signed one of the biggest streaming deals in the industry with Kick, a rival platform to Twitch. While the exact value of the deal has not been officially disclosed, some reports have estimated it to be around $150 million over two years.

Ross attempted to purchase a reported $10 million mansion in Miami but was outbid by Lionel Messi, the Argentine football star who plays for Inter Miami. He expressed his disappointment, explaining that he couldn’t make the purchase in time, as negotiations for the house were already underway. The mansion boasted features like a movie theatre and various amenities.

As he lost the opportunity to purchase the mansion, Adin Ross mentioned that he was considering building his own house in Miami since he was having difficulty finding one that met his preferences.
