Hype House reality show: Will you cancel Netflix over these members?
TikTok has become one of our favorite apps. Learning a new dance or memorizing a POV can be exhausting so it’s usually best we leave it to the professionals. But what happens when things go a step too far? We get a Netflix show following the lives of TikTok’s Hype House . . . seriously.
As we said, we love TikTok, but this whole reality show idea sounds fishy. Especially when you look at the members involved. Peek at the latest Netflix collaboration here.
Crash & burn
Being TikTok famous apparently comes with a price and that price happens to be your dignity. The Hype House was created to bring together young up-and-coming TikTokers so they can collab and grow their followers by the millions. Oh and those sponsorships.
Netflix has decided to jump on the bandwagon and create a new reality show featuring some of TikTok’s biggest creators. The new series will feature Kouvr Annon, Nikita Dragun, Sienna Mae Gomez, Chase Hudson (Lil Huddy), Larri Merritt, Thomas Petrou, Alex Warren, Jack Wright, and Vinnie Hacker.
The series promises to show “the stories of the most popular personalities on social media as they come into their own, fall in love and tackle the next stage of their lives.” So, why are so many people cancelling their Netflix subscriptions now?
The Hype House
Many Hype House members have left the original group following their rise to fame. Charli D’Amelio is known as the biggest TikToker and was an original Hype House member when the group was first assembled.
Originally founded in 2019, the members who first joined the TikTok house were Chase Hudson (aka Lil Huddy), Connor Yates, Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, Alex Warren, Addison Rae, Avani Gregg, Wyatt Xavier, Daisy Keech, Jack Wright, Larri Merritt, Sienna Mae Gomez, Ryland Storms, Nick Austin, Ondreaz Lopez, Nikita Dragun, Tony Lopez, Kouvr Annon, Thomas Petrou, Calvin Goldby, James Wright, Jack Wright, and Patrick Huston.
You may recognize Charli & Dixie D’Amelio, Chase Hudson, Addison Rae, Avani Gregg, the Lopez Brothers, and Nikita Dragun. Charli & Dixie are currently on their own and being ever-so successful with thousands of sponsors waiting in the wings. Chase Hudson is still a member of the Hype House but is releasing music that isn’t actually cringey.
Addison Rae is also really popular and is Kourtney Kardashian’s BFF. Avani Gregg just released a Morphe collab and is working solo. The Lopez Brothers aren’t associated with anyone right now following a series of shocking sexual assault allegations. Nikita Dragun is busy being controversial and refusing to wear a mask while associating with the Lopez Brothers and James Charles (also currently being investigated for sexually assaulting minors.)
If you’ve not noticed the current sh*tstorm on Twitter then you’re probably unaware of the fan’s reactions to Netflix’s new reality series. Let’s take a look at some fan reactions.

Why Netflix? Why would you cancel these absolute gems and begin a reality show involving some questionable creators? We have to know what’s happening in The Society!

Nikita Dragun is slowly becoming the internet’s least favorite person since the pandemic. Is it because she won’t wear a mask? Is it because she refuses to acknowledge her friend’s assault allegations? Maybe it’s all of the above . . . .

Drama Twitter accounts are weighing in about Netflix’s odd choice to include Nikita Dragun in this reality series.

Chris, we may be joining you in this. They’ve taken all our favorite things and replaced them with problematic Hype House members. What a cruel world.
Well, it looks like we’re seeing TikTok and Netflix collab. Are you excited about these Hype House members joining the reality series? Should we ignore their obvious lack of awareness over recent allegations? Let us know in the comments.
