Hype House, the physical location of a new content creator collective, is a Spanish-style mansion perched at the top of a hill on a gated street in Los Angeles. It has a palatial backyard, a pool and enormous kitchen, dining and living quarters.

Four of the group’s 19 members live in the house full time; several others keep rooms to crash in when they are in town. And all day long, a stream of influential young internet stars come by to pay homage to the new guard.

Hype House was formed in December by some of TikTok’s most talked-about stars. They introduced themselves with a Backstreet Boys-esque photo shoot, and within minutes #hypehouse began trending; videos including the hashtag #hypehouse have accrued nearly 100 million views on TikTok.

The group handle that distributes their content surpassed 3 million followers on TikTok in just over a week and a half. In the days leading up to Christmas it was all anyone under the age of 18 on TikTok seemed to be talking about.

[q]Hype House was the brainchild of Chase Hudson, 17, a TikTok star with more than eight million followers who is known online as Lilhuddy,[q]

So how do you get rich off this ish. Maybe ILX can put together a bankable collective.

you generally have to be 15-20 to get rich off this ish. no ilxor stands a chance unless they exploit their own 15-20-year-old children (or I guess cute cats/toddlers) or play up the "crazy out-of-touch old person who hilarious misunderstands the way tiktok works" angle

I love not being on instagram but some of my friends end up sending me screenshots of some instagram posts and force feeding me it that way.
