After a few minutes of hesitation, his co-host Luke mentioned the offer he had received from someone looking to buy the company.

“No, No. I don’t regret that actually. I worried I would. Did I ever say how much the offer was? Well, it wasn’t six figures, and it wasn’t seven. It sure as hell wasn’t five or under… it wasn’t eight either,” Linus revealed.

They went on to mention that this was before the ever-popular Linus Tech Tips branded backpack and ratcheting screwdrivers that tons of fans were quick to snatch up from the store.
