Popular YouTuber David Dobrik has said he doesn’t think Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul are in their relationship for the long haul.

Known for his crazy pranks and stunts, Dobrik boasts over 13 million subscribers on YouTube and is slated to host the 2019 Teen’s Choice Awards alongside actress Lucy Hale of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ fame.

While at Variety’s Power of Young Hollywood event on August 7, Dobrik shared his thoughts about Paul and Mongeau’s relationship with Entertainment Tonight.

What did Dobrik have to say?

When ET’s Katie Krause asked Dobrik if he thought the YouTube power couple’s relationship would be a “forever thing”, he simply replied “Of course not.”

“Tana and Jake? I would be surprised if their marriage lasts another three days,” the YouTuber said, before recalling his marriage to Lorraine Nash, which only lasted a month. “We ended on good terms, I don’t know if Tana and Jake have that in them.”

Jake Paul, InstagramMongeau and Paul’s highly-publicized wedding ceremony was broadcast on the pay-per-view network Halogen.

“I think they’re just too young, and too crazy to stay with each other,” Dobrik explained. “I think they’re both lunatics – in a good way – and they won’t be able to handle each other.

The YouTuber also isn’t convinced that the pair’s wedding was even legit. “Is the marriage real? No,” Dobrik replied with a laugh. “I think someone looked it up and they didn’t have marriage papers.”

“It doesn’t matter because at the end of the day it’s so entertaining, and the fact you’re even talking about means they got the job done,” he added. “So, they’re killing it.”

So… did Jake and Tana actually get married?

To make a long story short: kind of. They went through the motions and had a full ceremony, but Mongeau herself admitted that her union with Paul was not legally binding due to finding such legalities “unnecessary.”

“To everybody that’s calling it fake because we rushed into it or because I don’t do things traditionally, because I wanted to not do it legally,” she said in a video about the wedding. “Any wedding I have, if I have three more fucking weddings, I really wouldn’t want to do it on paper because I think that legally binding yourself to someone takes away the love.”

So it seems like Dobrik was partly correct about Tana and Jake’s wedding not being 100 percent official, but whether his prediction that the couple won’t last much longer is accurate remains to be seen.


Mr Beast teases chess match with grandmaster Hikaru

The Beast’s Gambit? After YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson revealed his ‘addiction’ to chess, and his wish to play with other creators, esports org TSM offered the services of their chess grandmaster, Hikaru Nakamura – and it’s looking like a collaboration is on the cards.

Chess has seen a big resurgence in popularity over the past year. After streamers like xQc and Forsen picked up the game early in 2020, chess.com established the Pogchamps: an amateur chess tournament. After the success of the first tournament, a second edition was completed in September.

Then Netflix released ‘The Queen’s Gambit’, a miniseries about a chess protege on a quest to conquer the chess world. The cultural impact has been insane. When the series was released, the International Chess Federation found that Google searches for people wanting to learn chess quadrupled.

MrBeast has already made his wish to get involved with esports abundantly clear. While chess isn’t technically an esport, the two overlap a lot nowadays, and this latest development seems like a definite step in that direction.

Mr Beast’s epic rise on YouTube has seen him do, and play, plenty of different things.

MrBeast teases match with TSM chess grandmaster Hikaru

After MrBeast tweeted out his desire to be matched up with chess content creators, TSM responded by offering the services of grandmaster, Hikaru.

“Just started playing chess a few days ago, any creators want to play? I’m addicted,” MrBeast said.

MrBeast then talked about his fascination with Hikaru’s work, explaining how he “watch[es] all his videos.” TSM looked to seal the deal, and replied: “Let’s make it happen.”

A chess matchup between MrBeast and Hikaru, or even some sort of tutorial, would be an exciting piece of prospective chess content. Hikaru seems keen to capitalize on the current hype around chess. After the success of the first two Pogchamps, Hikaru tweeted his desire for the third edition of PogChamps to be created.

He’s already had responses from big names, with Fnatic League coach YamatoCannon and StarCraft commentator Artosis willing to get involved.

If Hikaru’s bid to put together a new tournament comes to a head, perhaps we’ll be seeing MrBeast lining up as one of the competitors.
