Last week, when four of Gen Z's favorite creators — Isaak Presley, Sebastian Topete, Chase Keith, and Christopher Romero — abruptly moved out of Clubhouse Beverly Hills, fans were concerned. On his Instagram Story, Presley shared a somber image of his packed bags sitting in a parking lot.
"thank you guys for everything..." Presley captioned the post. "@theclubhousebh see you around." Presley punched in a few broken heart emojis for good measure, hit send, and let the confusion begin.
It was a harmless publicity stunt. The four creators knew it would stir up controversy if they acted as though they'd been kicked out of the Clubhouse, and the strategy worked. Clubhouse stans immediately started clamoring for answers. But they'd have to wait another week for the truth: The boys are leaving, but they weren't forcibly removed. In fact, they're getting a collab house of their very own.
The four creators are launching a new TikTok collab house called Clubhouse For The Boys
11选5精准杀号法Now, Presley and his compatriots are ready to give fans a first look at their new venture: (or "FTB," for short). The vibe of FTB, Presley said, is going to be "modern gentleman" as opposed to "party animal." The boys fully intend to be rowdy and wild, but they want to be remembered as kind and well-intentioned, too.
"Our goal is not to be dramatic and be problematic and get into all these issues," Presley continued. "Our goal is to have fun, be entertaining, have something there for everyone to love. But at the end of the day, keep our noses clean and our shoulders upright."
The decision to leave Beverly Hills wasn't easy for Presley, he says. But when he started discussing the idea with the rest of the Clubhouse internally, it quickly became clear to everyone involved that a split made sense. The boys had a natural rapport from years of knowing each other prior to joining Beverly Hills, and that was reflected in the content they filmed together.
"Every single girl in the house has now become like a sister to me especially, and to all the other boys," Presley said of the female creators who comprise Clubhouse Beverly Hills. "But I think we all just realized that the dynamic of the boys, you know, there might be something there."
Presley said he wants to make the new collab house diverse in more ways than one
11选5精准杀号法Presley himself is half-Latino and starred for two years on Disney Channel's "Stuck in the Middle," a show that followed a Latino family through the eyes of 14-year-old Harley Diaz, played by Jenna Ortega.
11选5精准杀号法"Seb and Chris and I are all Hispanic or Latino or Spanish," Presley said. "We're all kind of from different areas, but, you know, us Latinos stay together."
11选5精准杀号法It's one thing, Presley said, to pay lip service to diversity, and quite another to act on it when you have the chance. With the introduction of Clubhouse FTB, he finally does.
11选5精准杀号法"I don't feel like kids should ever feel like unless they're a certain race or ethnicity or age or look, that they can't be famous," Presley said. "Because growing up acting, I've seen everything. I've seen from tall to small to every ethnicity to every age to every type of gender and sexuality. With acting, it doesn't matter. It's talent."
As Presley sees it, creating room at the top for non-white creators is part of his job as an influencer.
"I think if more kids see kids who look like them doing things that they want to do, it'll inspire a new generation," he added.
In the days to come, FTB will be adding other names to its growing roster — including, potentially, Gen Z fan favorite But Presley says he plans to be discerning and selective in his recruitment efforts.
11选5精准杀号法"I come from a background of acting and I grew up on sets," he said. "And from a very early age, I realized the controversies that can come when you toss a bunch of teenagers, young adults together and have them be together all the time. And working together, especially. Because one thing is conflicting interests and personal lives. And then, once you add work into it, it can sometimes cause problems."
Clubhouse For The Boys will be a 'sister house' to Clubhouse Beverly Hills and Clubhouse Next
Infighting is a no-go at FTB, but pranking, on the other hand, is a different story. With three "sister houses" in the Clubhouse network — Beverly Hills, Next, and FTB — Presley said the opportunities for hijinks and shenanigans are endless.
11选5精准杀号法"I remember Daisy [Keech] and I were having a laugh about how, now, we can all just abuse each other and then run away to our own houses," Presley recalled, adding "There are already about two or three pranks the boys that I have in mind that we're excited to go do over at BH."
11选5精准杀号法That said, Presley may have met his match in Clubhouse Beverly Hills member Kinsey Wolanski, the professional stuntwoman best known for .
"I feel like my pranks are like, I'll put a bucket of water on the door and spill it on you," Presley said. "I feel like Kinsey's will be, she'll wake me up in the middle of the night jumping out of an airplane."
At the moment, the group is staying at a rental in the Hollywood Hills while they search for a permanent home for FTB. Even so, TikTok royalty Charli D'Amelio and Avani Gregg have both stopped by to visit the boys' new digs.
11选5精准杀号法"There's no worry about numbers or money or anything like that," Presley said of FTB's group dynamic. "It all just comes down to, at the end of the day, we all are trying to succeed. And we're doing it with our friends, and I think that's a beautiful thing."
