Reality TV star Harry Jowsey, who made a name for himself on Netflix’s Too Hot to Handle, has explained how the Impaulsive podcast changed his life and helped pull him out of a terrible depression.

Harry Jowsey rose to fame when he appeared in Too Hot to Handle in April 2020, a show which encourages their young contestants to attempt to forge meaningful relationships with one another and encouraging celibacy — if contestants fail to do so, the $100,000 prize winnings get decreased.

Jowsey was a joint winner with Francesca Farago, but things started to take a spin after the show finished filming.

Jowsey and Farago announced their breakup in July 2020.

On episode 202 of the Impaulsive podcast, he said that the show has “changed his life” before explaining how it pulled him out of a seriously troubling state.

“I was in a bad headspace,” he said. “My mom fell off a horse and broke her knee, ribs… Then I had a loss in my family, and then someone really close to me tried to kill themselves. In the space of a week.”

He continued “I spoke to my girlfriend at the time, I was asking her to pretty much just be my friend… and she said I was doing it to ruin her trip. I was so heartbroken. I told her exactly what was going on, and I told her I’m destroyed.”

Jowsey then went on to explain that one night he watched an Impaulsive episode with “this crazy guy called Charlie Rocket” and it completely changed his outlook.

He goes on to say that he’s sent the video to all his friends, advising them to watch it whenever they feel upset, and has got ‘winning streak’ — a phrase Rocket used throughout the podcast — tattooed on his hand.

He also shows hosts Logan Paul and Mike Majlak his ‘quantum’ book from the show — in which he wrote a number of things he wanted to achieve, including becoming a millionaire by 23 (“I might be a couple of months late to that”) and, ironically, being on the Impaulsive podcast.

It’s fair to say that Harry is well on his way to achieving many of his goals — and is most certainly on a winning streak.

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
