Sway House member Bryce Hall and Hype House leader Thomas Petrou are having drama yet again, as Bryce called out his fellow TikTok star and claims he challenged Thomas to a boxing match.

Bryce and Thomas have naturally bumped heads before, being members of rival TikTok houses and capitalizing on the tension between them to generate content.

In May, Thomas took aim at Bryce on Instagram by screenshotting his youtube videos about YouTuber RiceGum and calling them “unnecessary” drama. He praised his own videos as “quality content.”

The drama kicked off again on August 8th when Bryce uploaded a YouTube video titled “Listen Up Hype House Owner…” He shows a series of screenshots of a war of words between the pair on Instagram.

One comment from Thomas reads “instead of talking s**t let’s talk about Lebanon” in reference to the recent tragedy in Beirut.

In another comment, Bryce made fun of his video filling a pool with plastic balls and says “we’re on two different levels buddy…stay in your lane.”

In his video, Bryce shows a clip from a paparazzi video via the Hollywood Fix in which he calls the Hype House’s content fake, following it up by saying “did I f**king lie?”

He then claims that he “tried to set up a boxing thing with him” in a similar style to the Logan Paul vs KSI fight of 2018.

However, he claims that Thomas “doesn’t want to do that type of stuff” because he knows Bryce will win and claims he’s “scared” of getting embarrassed.

When Thomas was asked by paparazzi if he would consider boxing Bryce, he responded that he “doesn’t think there would actually be enough people” would turn up. He said he would “rather fight someone off-camera” to teach them a lesson.

By the looks of things, this inter-house drama won’t ever draw to a close as long as the Hype House and Sway House are up and running, as it’s a huge part of the generation of attention toward their content.


Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
