Check out what Thomas had to say below.
PT: First off, congrats on all of your success. We would love to know when was that first moment where you said to yourself, “I want to start a YouTube channel” and did you ever think it would be so successful to land you on a Netflix show?
TP: I began daily vlogging on January 1st, 2016 and it’s been a crazy journey that’s brought me to where I am today.
PT: We hear you just went on a trip around Europe celebrating the show with your castmates? What were the highlights of the trip and your favorite city you visited?
TP: My favorite city was Paris, it felt like a more beautiful version of Los Angeles and inspired us all to make content.
PT: We saw on IG, during your trip, that you and your Hype House members tagged and thanked a few brands like Maven’s List and MyMarkit. Tell us your involvement with them and how these collaborations came about?
TP: These collaborations came through the Founder of Maven’s List, Jeff Jones and he brought in other brands to sponsor to take us on an amazing trip!
PT: Our viewers would love to know if you found love in Paris? It’s such a romantic city.
TP: We all fell in love with the city and hope to come back soon.
PT: With the upcoming Netflix show, will you be explaining the starting days of the “Hype House?” Could you tell our viewers a little bit about the process of starting an influencer content house?
TP: When I started The Hype House it was always about bringing together a group of friends who genuinely cared about each other and that was the way I brought in new people which helped us grow because we all were friends.
PT: We noticed you post on social media a lot about health and wellness. What led you to change your lifestyle? Also, what tips do you have for your followers who are struggling with weight or mental health?
TP: This industry can cause very serious mental health issues so I love to stay transparent with my fanbase because I know it’s something people at home can relate to.
PT: Lastly, besides a Netflix show and a thriving career, what’s next for you that we might not expect?
TP: Netflix is my main focus outside of YouTube and finding new creators to be a part of The Hype House!
