Nikita ‘Niki’ Nihachu is a German YouTuber and Twitch streamer famous for her just chatting and gaming content. She has over 100K followers on Twitch and 38.4K subscribers on her self-titled YouTube channel.

This piece will look at Wilbur and Nihachu’s relationship.

Wilbur and Nihachu matched on the virtual dating game show Rajjchelor

Simply put, Rajjchelor is like The Bachelor online. Wilbur appeared on the game as the ‘bachelor’ and eliminated all the female contestants except Niki. At this point, it could have gone one of two ways. Before the game started, the women picked between ‘host’ and ‘love’. ‘Host’ meant that a contestant didn’t have an interest in the bachelor while ‘love’ meant that she had an interest. Thankfully, Niki had picked ‘love,’ and it meant that she and Wilbur were a match. 

Niki and Wilbur started streaming together after their match, and they shared many cute moments online. The pair seemed pretty intent on being a couple. In March 2020, Wilbur took a trip to Niki’s home country Germany. It’s unclear whether he went there to meet Niki, but he reportedly appeared on one of Niki’s streams during his time in Germany. 

Wilbur and Nihachu are seemingly just friends

The nature of Wilbur and Nihachu’s relationship is quite confusing because the couple hasn’t expressly stated whether they are dating. However, according to one Reddit fan, Niki said on her stream on 10th June that she and Wilbur are just friends. 

A recent tweet by Nihachu also suggests that she isn’t quite sure about her relationship with Wilbur. She posted a photo with the following message, “Nik are u Stil wolbur?” A fan asked Niki to answer the question, and she replied with, “I don’t know Sophie. I don’t know.”
