The Hype House is a collective of TikTok creators living under the same roof, but who are the members and who’s in the cast of the new Netflix show about their lives?
Hype House landed on Netflix last week and for TikTok obsessives it’s all they can talk about.
The Hype House, first formed in December 2019, is where a group of TikTok creators with millions of followers between them share a living space to create content on a daily basis, and the Netflix documentary follows the wild lives of the Gen-Z social media stars who make thousands by posting videos on the platform.
The Netflix shows sees familiar names such as Charli and Dixie D’Amelio in the famous house, but there’s a bunch more youngsters viewers of the series are getting to know.
As Nikita Dragun put it, the Hype House is '10 20-year-olds living in a $5million fraternity house, with millions of dollars and high school drama and a ring light."
So, who are the members of the Hype House?
Thomas is one of the co-founders of Hype House, with over 1.8 million subscribers on YouTube and over 8 million on TikTok.
He calls himself ‘the dad of the house’ and ensures the rent gets paid by the money the members make from their sponsored Hype House content.
Warren is another co-founder of the Hype House, known for pranking his fellow Hype House members and putting on wild stunts.
He’s dating fellow TikTok star Kouvr Annon.
Warren’s also a budding musician, with over 14 million TikTok followers.
He admits in the series he spends between $50,000 - $70,000 on his YouTube videos.
Kouvr moved to LA in 2019 to be nearer boyfriend Warren.
The 21-year-old often collaborates with her beau in her TikToks but says on the series it’s difficult to separate social media and their relationship when they’re so open online.
She and Warren met over Snapchat after he saw someone post a video of her asleep and he thought ‘she was the most beautiful person.’
