Here's a Much Needed Update on TikTok's Hype House

From Seventeen

The Hype House still remains one of TikTok's most popular content houses and while others have tried to reach their level of fame, for the most they've failed to do so. Despite some recent departures and a whole lot of drama, you probably still see the Hype House and its members everywhere you turn. So, in case you needed an update on what these newly minted stars are up to these days, here's a refresher on everything you need to know about the Hype House.

What is the Hype House?

Think Jake Paul's Team Ten or David Dobrik's The Vlog Squad. The Hype House is a group of teens who make TikToks together in LA. Unlike Team Ten, though, there is no de facto leader taking a percentage of the profits.

"This whole house is designed for productivity," Thomas Petrou, who is credited with helping to create the House along with Chase Hudson and Daisy Keech, told The New York Times. "If you want to party, there’s hundreds of houses that throw parties in L.A. every weekend. We don’t want to be that."

Of course, there are house rules. As NYT explains, the members are allowed to have friends over, but they can't throw a party. And, if you break something, you have 15 days to replace it. The biggest rule, though? All members must make TikTok videos, three a day to be exact.

Where is the Hype House?

While the Hype House originated in a mansion in LA, seven months after moving into that first home, the group packed up and left for an even more epic place. The members took over the former residence of the Clout Gang and their new digs include a gym, elevator, and what he called the disco room.

Who lives in the hype house?

Honestly, it's almost impossible to get an accurate list of all the members of the Hype House because it seems like it's constantly changing. That being said, we do know that the following TikTokers are currently part of the group: Alex Warren, Ryland Storms, Connor Yates, Nick Austin, Addison Rae, Chase Hudson, Kouvr Annon, Wyatt Xavier, Thomas Petrou, Avani Gregg, Calvin Goldby, James Wright, Ondreaz Lopez, Jack Wright, Patrick Huston, Tony Lopez, Olivia Ponton, Mia Hayward, Taylor Holder, Kelianne Stankus, Angel Herrara, Nate Wyatt, Larri Merritt and Michael Sanzone.

OK, that's a lot of people, so let's break some of them down.

Alex Warren


Many consider Alex Warren to be kind of like the David Dobrik of the Hype House, pretty much because he seems really genuine and down-to-earth and he is known for his great vlogs featuring all of the other members.

Kouvr Annon


Alex's girlfriend, Kouvr, is also in the Hype House. She has been known to be very outspoken when it comes to body positivity.

OK so it's unclear if Mia is actually a member of the Hype House, but she seems to live there and is always hanging around with the rest of the group. Plus, she's dating Thomas Petrou who is pretty much the dad of the House.

Chase, who is known as Lil Huddy, used to date former Hype House member Charli D'Amelio, though they have since broken up. These days, though, the exes are seemingly still friends and Chase remains the original e-boy of TikTok.

Addison Rae

While there were some rumors that Addison was leaving the Hype House after Charli and Dixie, she is still currently a member. Recently, Addison has gotten into acting and has been spending a lot of her free time with Kourtney Kardashian. While she was previously dating Sway House member Bryce Hall, she is currently single.

Thomas Petrou

Thomas, 21, used to be a part of Team 10. He is credited with creating the Hype House, along with Chase and Daisy. Ever since his drama with Daisy, Thomas has been keeping it pretty low key, though he recently found himself in a feud with Bryce.

Are there other TikTok houses like the Hype House?

Ever since the Hype House launched, many other houses have followed suite. There's the Sway House, the Clubhouse, and so many more. Depending on what you're looking for in a content house, whether it's more fashion focused, filled with comedic creators, or something totally different, chances are there's a house out there to feel your needs.
