YouTube star Kathleen ‘Loserfruit’ Belsten has revealed why she decided to leave the Click Crew’s famous Sydney content house just eighteen months after moving in, and what her plans are now that the Click House is no more.
Loserfruit has already had a huge 2020. Alongside Nathan ‘Crayator’ Ryan and Team Liquid content creator Fasffy, the 27-year-old led a 36-hour livestream with the Click Crew to raise more than $300,000 for the Australian bushfire crisis.
In the behind-the-scenes world of the Click Crew, however, the content house that the group had established back in mid-2018 was coming to an end, at least in part. Eighteen months, and a house swap later, Lufu headed out the door.
Why did the Click House come to an end?
According to the Australian star, who broke down the main reasons why she had walked out the Click House door in a YouTube video, the house began to drift apart after the group made the call to switch locations a year in.
Whereas the first house boasted Lufu, Cray, Brodey ‘Bazza’ de Meur, Elliott ‘Muselk’ Watkins, and Marcus Butler, the second house began to shrink. Muselk never moved into house two, and Belsten’s boyfriend Marcus left Click soon after.
All of this, as well as the fact the group who were left, seriously slowed down production of their regular videos, to the point where they released nothing in January and February 2020, made it all feel like it “wasn’t Click.”
“It just didn’t feel like the Click House to us anymore, and if it didn’t feel like the Click House then why were we doing it in the first place,” Loserfruit said.
“Basically, we realized that it just wasn’t useful [to be in the same house], because we could still make Click videos and not live in the same house. It was that kind of vibe, we started to ask why we were in the house together.
“That all came alive in the second house even more so, where we never filmed, we never did anything. The only thing we really did do together was stuff for my videos, so at least I was capitalizing on it where I could, in the end.”
Lufu believes Click will be better after ditching the house
Click Crew’s lavish Sydney content house may be coming to an end after two years housing some of Australia’s biggest online stars, but Loserfruit doesn’t think it’s going to be a bad thing for the group at all.
Sure, it will be “scary,” she admitted, and the Aussie YouTuber knows she’s going to be “sad the house has ended” for a while, but if it means Click can continue to grow again, and not get stuck because of the house, she’s game.
“We were already seeing each other a lot, and when you see your best friends every day, you don’t have new things to say, so when you then have to film together on top of spending time together it’s like ‘what do I say, what do I do?’” she said.
“I don’t think our houses crumbled, both were incredibly successful, and I believe that. They were great, and now they’re just coming to their rightful end. I think it’s the best decision we have made. We had to end the Click House."

While Loserfruit living at the Click House has come to an end, the Click Crew — which also includes Fortnite stars LazarBeam and MrFreshAsian — itself is far from over. In fact, their multi-month hiatus just ended with a new video.
Lufu also believes it will be for the best. “It will give us more pure energy for our content," she said. "It’s going to make everything we do with Click so much better. It’s sad we don’t have the house the way it was, but I think it’s for the best.”
Keep your eyes peeled for new Loserfruit videos too. The 27-year-old has her hands full moving out of the Click House, and has confirmed she'll be “doing a lot fewer streams," but the Aussie will be back on YouTube soon enough.
