I don't know. He looks pretty gross in some of his snaps and the more candid shots on the squads' videos. I'll never forget him SHOWING OFF his pee jar that he keeps by his bed and the stains around his toilet that they literally never clean up... so gross.Tusky wrote: ↑Sun Jul 29, 2018 4:02 amI think a lot of what shane wears etc is a bit of a front. I think shane is kind of a "character", but behind the scenes he takes a bit more care of himself.KMcWitty wrote: ↑Sun Jul 29, 2018 3:43 amSame. I just skimmed through it and that was more than enough. What bothers me is Walmart makes comfy ass clothes. Like if I had a choice between buying Gucci and buying Walmart shirts, i'd easily choose Walmart. I just don't get the point in super high luxury brand clothing like it looks awful and is probably made of mostly the same material anyways. Plus lets not forget Shane's wardrobe isn't exactly high end either so I don't know where he's coming from.pretendcat wrote: ↑Sat Jul 28, 2018 8:41 pmI can't do it. I literally couldn't bring myself to watch Rylands video and honestly I probably wont watch the JS series. This boujie stuff was funny for like 2 seconds. It's making me sick to my stomach watching youtubers talk about Walmart and other cheaper stores like they're the scum of the earth, and then go on rants about how "they EARNED THEIR MONEY and if they want to buy luxury brands theres nothing wrong with that" (I'm looking at you Garrett, you sad, misinformed beautiful man). I get that when you grow up less fortunate you romanticize these luxury type items but its one thing to buy an item here and there, vs. buying every slide Gucci makes and talking about how wearing Walmart clothes is somehow panic attack inducing.
He needs to get new management or something if his people can't find sponsors for him. I've been non-family friendly folks get sponsorships. Heck, even AbsolutelyBlake, which is 90% about sex, has sponsors sometimes.Cakey wrote: ↑Sun Jul 29, 2018 9:50 pmI hope Shane isn’t going to withhold this video just because it hasn’t been sponsored (saw a tweet from Shane asking any brand to sponsor)
I did see an interview he did with FazeBanks and Keemstar where he said he was getting paid a pittance compared to more family friendly channels which I find so sad for him but I can also guarantee the pay would be a hell of a lot more than what most people earn in a standard day plus the added revenue he gets from people binge-watching his older stuff. A lot of you tubers seem so out of touch with how many of us actually live and they earned lots of money at top Young an age. Shane comes across as humble because he remembers how he and his family struggled financially but since ryland came on to the scene everything is suddenly Money money money.
I never thought of it that way, but I think you're right about youtubers being out of touch with real world finances because they got rich so young. So they went from their parents supporting them to these massive six and seven figure annual incomes in their teens and twenties. They got on YT at the right time, just as the platform was starting to explode. Shane himself has never had a "real" job, has he?
