About

Team 10 is the name of a talent incubator consisting of YouTubers, vloggers and social media personalities led and founded by Jake Paul. As Team 10, the group, which originally consisted of Neels Visser, Alissa Violet, Alex Lange, AJ Mitchell, and twins Lucas and Marcus Dobre, live under one roof and create content for each other's various social media channels.

History

In 2015, Jake Paul, the YouTuber and founder of TeamDom, a new media company aimed at creating brand-sponsored content for the teen market, began raising money for "Team 10," a social media collective designed to create more content across multiple channels.[1]

The following year, on August 5h, 2016, the Team 10 YouTube channel published a video called "Team 10." The post (shown below) received more than 514,000 views in about two years.



People reported that Paul, along with six others, would be moving into a new house together, named Team 10 House. The group originally consisted of Neels Visser, Alissa Violet, Alex Lange, AJ Mitchell, and twins Lucas and Marcus Dobre.[2]

On January 17th, 2017, TechCrunch[3] reported that Jake Paul had raised $1 million for the Team 10 project. At the time, Paul said of his success:

"It started as Team Ten a year and a half ago while vine was still big. I had this theory where I could replicate what Dr. Dre did in the music industry in the social media business. And I set out to put it to the test… found these kids online… they had 30,000 followers, then I flew them out to LA and taught them how to do things on social media.. In 2 weeks grew from 30,000 to 400,000 and today they have 16 million."

"It's Everyday Bro"

On May 30th, 2017, Paul uploaded a music video for a song called "It's Everyday Bro" to YouTube, where it gained over 26 million views (shown below). In the video, he brags about his followers and stated that he would soon pass Pewdiepie. Furthermore he made reference to his ex-girlfriend Alissa Violet, another YouTube star, who had undergone a very public breakup a few months prior amid rumors of mutual cheating and that Violet had begun to date Jake's brother, Logan Paul.[4]



The video soon generated drama between all the involved parties. Following the release of the video, Logan responded by essentially laughing it off in a video (shown below, top left). Then Jake uploaded a diss track directed to his brother (shown below, top right). This continued to escalate as fans of both started to feud with each other, leading Jake to release an apology video (shown below, bottom left). Logan then responded with another, jokey diss track, but couched within it a vlog in which he said he would give Jake a second chance (shown below, bottom right). Two threads about the entire drama were posted to /r/OutOfTheLoop.[5][6]



Meanwhile, Pewdiepie responded to Jake Paul's diss in "It's Everyday Bro" by mocking the video point by point in a video of his own that gathered over 6 million views (shown below).



2018 Team Exits

On May 4th, 2018, Nick Crompton, who was the center of the England Is My City meme, announced that he would be leaving the group. That day, he tweeted [11] a statement about leaving the group. He said, "In the past, I have been very disappointed in the way some talent have chosen to depart ways with Team 10, which is why I want to make it very clear as to why I am leaving,” Crompton said. “Due to internal changes being made within our various businesses that I don’t agree with, I have resigned both as chief operations officer and as talent … the vision for the business, people involved, and direction it’s now going in no longer makes sense to me." The post (shown below, left) received more than 1,500 retweets and 17,000 likes in less than one week.

Three days later, on May 7th, Team 10 member Chance Sutton announced his exit in a similar statement.[12] The post (shown below, right) received more than 430 retweets and 5,200 likes in two days.


Nick Crompton @TheNickCrompton It's time to move on from Team 10 Dear Team 10 fans, I figured I owed you an explanation as to why I made the decision to resign as Chief Operations Officer of Team 10. I want everyone to know that the past two years of building Team 10 have been the best years of my life. I had the pleasure of becoming part of such a tight family that really does do anything for each other In the past, I have been very disappointed in the way some talent have chose to depart ways with Team 10, which is why want to make it very clear as to why I am leaving. Due to internal changes being made within our various businesses that I don't agree with, I have resigned both as Chief Operations Officer and as talent. I still love my Team 10 family but the vision for the business, people involved and direction it's now going in, no longer makes sense to me. I have been incredibly lucky to work with such amazing, hardworking and talented people and I want to thank everyone at Team 10 that has been part of the journey. Whether you are current talent, old talent, current staff or old staff. We built something so unique that touches and helps so many people. The motivation behind everything I do is to always bring positivity into this world. As a kid, my family and I didn't have much so I relied heavily on the entertainment industry as an escape. Music, Film, TV and Digital Content is so magical and it helped me escape my daily worries and struggles, even if it was just for a 10 minute video or a 6 second Vine. Everyday after getting home from school, I would jump stright on YouTube to immerse myself in the life of my favorite YouTubers and experience life through their eyes and feel like I was part of their journey. I believed I would never be able to live a life like that, so it was the next best thing. As part of the vision for my career, I wanted to be a part of something that helped others in the same way it helped me- whether that was actually me being in front of the camera or behind the scenes making the business stuff happen. I have FrostyT10G @imchancesutton Thank You Team 10 FROSTY CHANCE SUTTON To all Team 10 Fans, The past year has been the most incredible and unbelievable journey. From when I first came to Los Angeles with Anthony, to joining Team 10 and all the amazing moments we had together. This chapter of my life and the memories will forever hold a place in my heart. I am truly blessed to have been part of a family that was able to touch so many lives. I want to thank each and everyone of you for supporting us, sticking with us and caring about us as much as you do. I never intended my life to be where it is right now, but I guess that's why they call it life. I am blessed to have a voice which is heard by so many people and I plan on using that voice to show who I, Chance Sutton, truly am. I have so many goals and visions set for the future that I cannot wait to share with you guys! With that being said, I have decided that it is my time to part ways with Team 10. I believe it is in the best interest for the future of my career that I start to focus on myself. I still plan on doing the thingsI love, such as streaming and producing content for everyone that supports me I have nothing but love for all of Team 10. I've been best friends with Anthony & Jake since the beginning of high school, I've watched them grow and flourish into what they are now and I'm happy to say I love them and call them my brothers. No matter where life takes us we will always have our bond. This team has been the best family anyone could ask for and I will cherish that forever. I want to thank all of the emolovees for working so hard and cenuinely caring for us Without them, our lives would've
