FaZe Clan’s Call of Duty professional player unveiled his new ride during a video he uploaded to his YouTube channel on June 23, giving fans not just an idea of how it looks, why he bought it, and also hinted at his plans for the future too.

While it’s not exactly brand new, he managed to pick it up with a 2019 registration plate, an impressively low number of miles, and for a snip of what the original price would be it if just left the showroom.

“I came in there and he gave me a price. I ended up only playing $44,000 for a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I got a third of the price off just because another guy decided to take the car, drive it around for two months and take it back in,” he said during the video. 

The original price of the SRT model vehicle, if purchased directly from Jeep, would be around $68,000 – according to the companies website.

According to the YouTuber, the previous owner decided to take it back to the dealership to upgrade to the Trackhawk model, a step up from the SRT, and that car is available from $86,000 – depending on the specifications choices.

Censor was clearly delighted to have come across such a good deal and it was made even cheaper after he traded in his 2015 Chrysler 300, contributing a further $14,500 towards the deal, making the actual financing price just $29,500 for the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT.

Pointing out its main selling points, he said: “I really wanted a car where I could be sitting up higher when I’m driving because, I love the Chrysler, but I just don’t like being low.”

He also says that the purchase is very much for the long-term as well, after revealing some of his future plans in the video.

“I’m at that point in my life guys where I still want to compete in Call of Duty full-time, still want to win championships, I want to expand into acting after I do Call of Duty. I still want to be a gamer, livestreamer, YouTuber, vlogger,” he says. “But, I do want to become a father by the time I’m 30.”

Censor went on to describe his new ride as the “perfect cool dad car” as he walked viewers through some more of the Jeep’s interesting specifications.

Thomas Petrou slams Bryce Hall’s accusations of stealing from Hype House

TikTok stars Thomas Petrou and Bryce Hall have sparked quite the feud after Hall accused Petrou — co-founder of the Hype House — of stealing money from his own content creators.

It’s no secret that the Hype House and the Sway House aren’t on friendly terms, with the two getting into a fierce beef throughout this past year (remember that time the Sway boys drove to the Hype House to confront Chase Hudson?).

While Hall has confirmed that their feud with the Hype House is definitely real, it seems that he’s going “full send” on his distaste for the group by accusing co-founder Thomas Petrou of outright stealing money from the HH’s content creators.

During an interview with Tom Ward on October 8, Hall made some serious claims about Petrou’s business practices, stating that he’d “stolen” money from the TikTokers working underneath the content collective.

“I’ll say it — he steals money,” Hall stated. “He steals money from those kids. These kids are — I love a lot of people in the Hype House, but they are not the smartest people. …maybe not now, because I haven’t talked to them in four or five months, and maybe somebody said something to him, but he, at the beginning, was stealing money for sure.”

Hall’s claims didn’t go unnoticed; Petrou responded to the accusations shortly thereafter, denying having ever stolen money from those in the Hype House in a pointed Instagram reply on a tea page.

“That’s a complete lie,” he wrote. “I’ve never taken a percentage of anyone in the Hype House. Ask everyone who’s a part of it. The whole reason I started this was to help the people around me make sure they weren’t getting taken advantage of by their managers and agents.”

Thomas Petrou denies Bryce Hall's allegations of stealing money from Hype House creators.

This isn’t the first time Hall has struck out at Petrou in recent days, either; the Sway House TikToker also slammed Thomas’s spending habits, claiming that he “spends his money like an idiot” on pricey cars instead of saving up wisely.

For now, it doesn’t look like there’s any love lost between these two social media stars as things continue to escalate between two of TikTok’s biggest creators.
