Popular content creator and beauty guru James Charles has surprised fans after announcing he would be hosting his own TikTok version of The Bachelor.

James Charles had an incredible year in 2019, as the YouTuber continued to gain new fans, despite the controversial feud between him and Tati Westbrook, even causing a traffic gridlock in Birmingham during one of his meet and greets.

The beauty star has even more planned for 2020, announcing that he would be kicking the year off hosting a TikTok version of the popular reality TV show, The Bachelor.

Although he admitted he was hesitant to post the video to TikTok, Charles explained that he didn’t feel like there was much to lose, “I feel like this can’t hurt and I don’t think it will turn into a scandal.”

The popular content creator then explained that many of the TikToks were made by couples, “I made one major observation after downloading TikTok and that is that this app is pretty much a dating app, let’s be real.”

“Everyone on here is either in a very cute relationship or is painfully single,” he expressed reluctantly, “Unfortunately for me, I fall into that second group of people, surprise, surprise!”

The YouTube star revealed he wanted to change that going forward and came up with a new idea for his followers to take part in, “In 2020 I’m trying to change that and put myself out there a little more and I want to get wifed up so I want to play TikTok Bachelor.”

Similarly to the popular reality show, Charles then started to describe himself and his hobbies before making a call for those interested to get involved and introduce themselves by commenting or to use TikTok’s Duet feature in response.

Despite his confident approach to the TikTok Bachelor announcement, at the end of the recording, he could not help but laugh at the whole idea of it, saying “oh my god what have I done.”

Even though asking the general public to get involved in such things as this can usually result in being trolled and other risks, Charles otherwise seemed to be quite optimistic about his unusual selection process for a new boyfriend.

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
