Nope. They want to be entertained. They are fine with people liking them, they are fine with people being mad at them.
What they nearly always absolutely hate is when people don't like them but are entertained by them. If people react to them without hostility, but with sort of amused tolerance, like putting up with an annoying younger sibling, that will generally drive them away pretty fast.
They have a script. There's always something that's off the script and makes them no longer enjoy the game.
