TikTok star Noah Beck crashed into the spotlight early last year, and now, he’s getting his very own reality show with Viacom’s Awesomeness TV. Here’s everything you need to know to tune in.

Noah Beck is a hugely popular influencer across multiple platforms, although he’s best known for his status as a top-tier TikToker.

Breaking into the world of internet stardom in June of 2020 with Sway House, Beck has since made a name for himself in his own right, now boasting over 23 million followers on TikTok alone.

Since then, Beck has started dating Dixie D’Amelio, and on January 12, it was revealed that he’s even getting his own reality series.

What is ‘Noah Beck Tries Things’ about?

‘Noah Beck Tries Things’ is the (humorously accurate) name of Noah’s upcoming reality show, which will feature the collegiate soccer player-turned-TikTok star on his journey through internet fame.

The show follows Beck from his introduction to the Los Angeles lifestyle just after kickstarting his career as an influencer, and will include a ton of hijinks along the way, featuring big names such as James Charles, Blake Gray, and, of course, Dixie D’Amelio.

It looks like Noah Beck Tries Things will include a shirtless cooking competition… for some reason.

As for what fans can expect the series to entail, it seems that Beck will be scouring Los Angeles to find his “thing,” and, as the show’s name implies, trying all manner of activities to achieve this goal — from “making diss tracks to DIY crafts.”

Where to watch Noah Beck Tries Things

Fans can tune into Noah Beck Tries things on Awesomeness TV’s digital platforms, which appear to include its official YouTube channel and website.

The show will kick off on Friday, January 22, 2021 at 7 AM PST / 10 AM EST. Make sure to mark your calendars — this isn’t a broadcast that fans will want to miss out on!

Beck isn’t the only TikToker getting his own show, either; the D’Amelio family similarly announced their own upcoming reality show in December 2020, which will follow the group amid their daughters’ struggles with internet stardom.

It looks like TikTokers keep breaking into the mainstream — but the jury’s still out on whether or not their shows will live up to the hype.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
