TikTok creator houses are on the rise. You know the Hype House, Sway House, and Clubhouse, now meet the Shluv House, the latest collective comprised of even more popular Tiktokkers including Spencer X and Micheal Le.

The Shluv gang moved into their massive LA house in the first week of May. Here’s what you need to know.

Who is in the Shluv house?

According to their social media, it looks as though current members probably include: Spencer X, Michael “Just Maiko” Le (its founder), Jonathan Le, Javier Romero, Matthew Gonzalez, Michael Uy, Derek “asapgoku” Graham, and couple Jon Klaasen and Elyssa Joy.

Who are Spencer X and Micheal Le?

Spencer X is a seriously talented beatboxer, and lots of their videos as a collective involve dancing to Spencer’s tracks. Michael Le and his little brother Jonathan have made a big name for themselves on TikTok for their dance moves, but the group often involves Jonathan in comedy skits.

Jonathan Klaasen is a musician well known for his appearance on the X Factor in 2013. The other members are multi-talented dancers, photographers, and pranksters.

When did the Shluv House start?

The Shluv Gang has been around for much longer than the house. It is essentially the collective name for fans and the group of creators surrounding Michael Le. Merchandise for the group was launched as “Shluv Clothing” in March this year.

Micheal Le announced the Shluv House on his social media just after they moved in, in May. He said: “I now introduce to you the Shluv house. This is the biggest accomplishment of my life that’s happened so far. words cannot express how happy and how thankful I am because of social media, my family, my friends, and all my fans.

“This house is the result of all my hard work, dedication to my dreams, and perseverance through every single obstacle that was thrown my way. I can’t wait to show you guys what I have planned for this new chapter of my life, but all I can say, for now, is thank you”

The Shluv house joins other major TikTok content houses in Los Angeles including the Hype House, Sway House, and Clubhouse. The Hype House is the most high-profile with popular Tiktokkers such as Chase Hudson and Addison Rae, but their ranks are changing with lots of new faces joining and some old faces leaving.

Sway House has also had two critical members leave, and there are rumours of the Hype House and Sway House joining forces to create the “Swype House”.

LS reveals how xQc reached out to him during T1 fans backlash

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
