This is more equivalent to a post-game Sports Commentator (there are thousands of those, spread out across all sports, and they are paid purely to look nice and waste people's time spurting the same old recaps / stale insights , in front of the cameras).
Most of these streamers are playing a game on camera that they have already pre-practiced and written commentary beforehand - not exactly a "new sporting event with real unexpected twists " like a football game.

Twitch streams are like a chatroom where you hang out and interact with the streamer. A chatroom with a host. Some are pre-planned. Some aren't so much. Some are comedians while others are far more serious.
There are pro streamers like LordBBH who 1cc's arcade games
Or Lowco who is covering twitch issues like this breach.
There's people like Vargskelethor
who essentially like screwing around and making great jokes. There's a pro poker player who streams on twitch, Lex Veldhuis
Not the same. At all.
