Netflix doesn't seem to be slowing down with its hype machine as the streaming service dropped a new reality series about TikTokers' private life dubbed "Hype House," starring the platform's influencers Annon, Dragun, Hacker, Hayward, Hudson, Merritt, Petrou, Warren and Wright.
Premiered on January 7, the show, according to Netflix's synopsis on Twitter, reveals a "side of themselves (and their relationships) that we rarely see." However, Insider's author Matilda Head wrote the show is far from being neither inspiring nor exciting:
The supercars, pool parties, and $5 million mansions cannot be worth it when it means spending unhappy and anxiety-filled years at the peak of fame in your late teens or early 20s, in constant fear that you'll end up canceled or slowly falling out favor with the audience you poured your heart into cultivating.
Apparently, Head isn't alone with her skepticism as the show barely got a 2.3 (out of 10) rating on IMDb. Users note that the storyline was "dull" as the whole product was made for "drugged up, vapid space cadets."
