You Wish You Had Mites Like This Hissing Cockroach | Deep Look


Is there anything more lowly than the lowly
cockroach? Uh, yeah there is. That’s a cockroach mite. It lives its entire life on this cockroach. But these hitchhikers are doing a lot more
good than you might think. The mites are only on one type of cockroach – these
guys – Madagascar hissing cockroaches… …which are known for their hiss, of course. They do that when disturbed or looking for
a mate. They only live in the Madagascar rainforest
on an island off the coast of Africa. And they’re bigger than the cockroaches
you might find in your kitchen, like these brown-banded roaches. These pests will eat anything: food scraps,
poop, trash – you name it. As a result, they can spread disease or trigger
allergies. Hissing cockroaches are detritivores – they
mainly eat decaying leaves, tidying up the forest floor. They can even be kept as pets, because they’re
more docile than their common cousins. And most importantly, they’re a lot cleaner
… thanks to a permanent population of tiny housekeepers. Ok, yeah, it looks pretty bad. The mites crowd together in the crevices – places
where the cockroach can’t brush them off. They get their meals near the cockroach’s
head, gobbling up the food bits and saliva that the roach leaves behind. When they get thirsty, they head to the spiracles:
the openings the roach uses to breathe. The mites get water vapor from them. The roach also has one special hissing spiracle
for that signature sound. The mites live on a single roach, unless they
get passed on from roach parent to roach baby. They’re doing these cockroaches a favor. By cleaning up the old food and debris, the
mites help keep them free of mold and pathogens … potentially extending the roaches’ lives. Really, both a hissing cockroach and its mites
have the same important job: keeping the world a little bit neater. Not so lowly, after all. Looking for more wild science adventures? Journey to Earth’s most remote laboratory

STUNG by a GIANT HORNET!


(intense music)
(buzzing) – I’m Coyote Peterson, and I’m about to enter
the sting zone with the Japanese Giant Hornet. One, two, here we go, three. One, two, here we go, three. One, two, here we go, three. (suspenseful music) Oh searing pain! Absolute searing pain! (intense jungle music) (lion roars) There are moments
we have brought you on the Brave Wilderness
channel that the world will never forget. (grunts) Oh it’s stuck in my arm,
it’s stuck in my arm. (yelling and grunting) Then there are the moments that we know the
world is waiting for. I’m Coyote Peterson, and I’m about to
enter the sting zone with the executioner
wasp, here we go. But before we get there, first, I must face one
more horrific sting. Ah!
(grunts) The Tottori Prefecture is one of the most remote
stretches of wildnerness in all of Japan. And mysteriously hidden deep within it fog
covered mountains, a world of giants stalk
this ancient landscape. For days we searched in
every place possible. Yet much to our chagrin, it seemed as an encounter with
Japan’s most notorious insect would allude us. Then in our second to
last day in country, when it seemed as if
all hope was lost, the very encounter I
had been searching for presented itself in the
form of a giant hornet. (gasps) Hornet, hornet, hornet,
hornet, hornet, hornet, right there, right
there, right there, right on the edge of that weed, look at that, it’s huge, right there, right
there, right there. (suspenseful music) Got it, hornet! Hornet, giant hornet 100%. – [Cameraman] You caught one? – [Coyote] Yes, yes, yes,
yes, yes, hold on a second. Yes, right there, right
there, right there. – [Cameraman] Dude you got it. – Got it, hold on I’m
gonna put this Go-Pro down. – [Cameraman] Wow
that is a big hornet! – Where is it, where
is it, hold on. – [Cameraman] It’s right
here, it’s right here. – Right there, right
there, right there. Let me trap it up against
the front of the net. – [Cameraman 2] Where is it? – It’s tangled up
within all these plants. – [Cameraman]
Mario, look at that. – [Cameraman 2]
Where, where, where? – [Coyote] Look, look, look, it’s biting right
through the net. – [Cameraman 2] You
can barely see it. – Here let’s do this, I
gotta get it in the capsule. – [Cameraman 2] Let’s
get it in the capsule. – [Coyote] Hold on
a second, here, uh. – [Cameraman 2]
Do you need help? – Hold the end of that,
hold the end of that. Ah!
(mischievous laughter) Yeah you guys will be
able to see a lot better if I get it into here,
hold on a second. I don’t wanna get
stung through the net. Okay, opp. (suspenseful music) I almost got it. – [Cameraman] You’re
sure it’s a giant. – I’m 100% certain
dude, it’s huge, there’s no way this
is anything else. Look at it, it’s
biting onto the net. Probably chew right
through there if it could. – [Cameraman] Hasn’t stung yet. – Got it, got it, got
it, got it, got it. – [Cameraman 2] Let’s
take a look at it. – Look at that, that is it, yep. – [Cameraman] You got one! Man! – How about that right? Oh my goodness, look
at how big it is, my hand is shaking. – [Cameraman] How’d you find it? – It was just on top of
the plants, I saw it, it was about ready to
take off and I was like, (gasps) I don’t know if I got
the shot on the Go-Pro, just dropped it into the dirt, I just had to make
sure that I got it. I swiped down right on
top of those plants, got the plants, and got the
hornet at the same time. It is huge. Wow. I guess that’s why they
call it the giant hornet. Man, okay, well, we’re
starting to lose light, but we definitely still
have time to get the scene. Let’s hike back up this
way, find a flat spot. Yes! We have got the
Japanese giant hornet! Man! Ho yeah! (suspenseful music) There it is, the
Japanese giant hornet. And I would say the giant
is an understatement. Not since the tarantula hawk have we encountered a
more intimidating insect. Look at that beast. From its head to its thorax, down its legs, which end
in grappling hooked feet, and then of course, that
enormous pulsating abdomen. Everything about
this creature screams run in the other direction. Yet here we are, on the door
step of the executioner wasp. And what we’re gonna
find out today, is just how painful the sting
of this hornet really is. Now on the insect sting
pain index it only ranks as a two, can you believe that? On a scale of one to
four, this is only a two. Maybe its bark is
bigger than its bite. Or in this case I
should say its sting. Today, I’m going to be stung by the largest
hornet in the world. Alright, what we’re gonna do now is get a couple of
really cool B-roll shots, I’m gonna walk around,
address the Coyote Pack, and then, we’re gonna
enter the sting zone. (deep exhale) I am nervous. The Japanese giant hornet
is considered to be one of the largest stinging
insects in the world. This nightmarish creature is armed with a 6.25
millimeter stinger and it injects a venom
known as mandaratoxin in a high dosage that
can destroy tissue and attack the nervous
system of its victim. And while a single sting
is not likely to be deadly, over 30 people die
every year in Japan from taking multiple stings. (grunts) In most cases, these
deaths come as a result of anaphylactic shock. But no matter how
you break it down, this sting is
incredibly dangerous. (deep breath) That is a big hornet. That is a huge hornet. The biggest hornet on
the face of the planet. And I have a feeling
that the sting is going to be intense. Now it’s rumored that the sting
of this insect can kill you. Guys, a single sting
is not going to kill me unless I go into
anaphylactic shock. Now if you were to be
swarmed by 30 or 40 bees, and be stung repetitively, yes, there is a good chance
that you will die. Now I’ve also heard that
the venom is going to cook a hole in my arm. (deep breath) Not exactly looking
forward to that, but, it all depends on how my
body reacts to the venom. Everybody reacts differently, you guys have to remember that. So, I’m gonna go
through with this. I know a lot of you
are probably running to the comments section
right now saying Coyote you don’t
have to do this, you don’t have to do this, I do have to do this. We have climbed the
insect sting pain index, and this is the only
one guys, the only one that I think we just have to
find out how bad that sting is. It’s so big, it’s such
a dominant character throughout all of
Japanese culture, and certainly when it comes to
the insect sting pain index, I don’t think that we can
leave this stone unturned. So if you guys are ready,
I think the crew is ready. It is time to enter
the sting zone with the Japanese giant hornet. (deep breath) Here we go. (heavy breathing) Warning, never attempt to
recreate the following scene as a sting from the giant
hornet has the potential to be lethal. Alright guys, this is it, the moment that you
all showed up for. Now before we go
through with the sting, first let’s talk a little
bit about the safety. We do have an
epinephrine pen with us. Now a single sting from this
hornet should not kill me. However, like most stings, you can go into
anaphylactic shock. It just depends how your
body reacts to the venom. I should be just fine. I will experience
some pain, discomfort, potentially some pretty
extreme swelling, but I shouldn’t die
from a single sting. I do have my etymology
forceps with me, what we’re gonna do is get
the insect into the net and then I’m gonna
get it under control. Same way we’ve done all the
sting videos in the past, are you guys ready? – Sounds good, are
you ready to do this? – [Coyote] Here we go. – Alright. – Alright, net coming up. This is probably one
of the most risky bits, we do not want to
lose the hornet, and I do not want to
get stung too early. Okay I’m gonna
gently stand up here, put the basin of the capsule
at the bottom of the net, alright, and hornet is
going live inside the net. Let me get the platform out. Here we go, platform
is out of the net. And, come on guy, out you go. And, come on guy, out you go. Alright, hornet is out of
the capsule, there we go. (sighs) Okay, so I’m gonna
keep the capsule close, you guys know the
goal is to always get the capsule back
on top of the insect before it flies away, place that there
for just a second, and now it gets intense. I have to figure out the best
way to pick up this giant. I want to grab right onto
the back of its thorax behind the wings so
I have full control. Alright, you guys
got a good shot? Alright, I’m gonna slightly
have to maneuver myself just a little bit here. Ooo, it is not happening,
this is one angry hornet. Hold on, hold on, got it. (suspenseful music) Oh it’s turning,
hold on a second. (deep sigh) My hand is shaking. (grunts) Control your nerves Coyote,
control your nerves. My heart is racing a
million miles a second and I can’t keep my hand still, I’ll have grab onto
the insect, hold on. Ah, the hornet is actually
biting onto the forceps. (suspenseful music) Okay, I’ve got it, I’ve
got it, perfect hold, that’s what we want. (sighs) Wow, alright, everyone just
take a moment to soak this in, that is an enormous hornet. Look at its abdomen pulsating. You look at the mandibles,
those are used for chomping. I think I may also take a bite
during this video as well, which I’m kind of afraid of, and if you zoom in on the legs, you can see that they
have these little hooks, they almost look
like grappling hooks, and one thing that
also scares me there is the chance it’s
gonna latch onto my arm, and sting more than once. I can’t stop my
hand from shaking. I haven’t been this nervous
since the tarantula hawk. – [Cameraman] Sure
you wanna do this? – Yeah, there’s no
turning back now. Alright, you guys ready? – [Cameraman] Ready if you are. – I’m Coyote Peterson,
and I’m about to enter the sting zone with
Japanese giant hornet. (suspenseful music) One, two, here we go, three. One, two, here we go, three. One, two, here we go, three. (suspenseful music) (loud yell) Oh, the stinger’s
stuck in my arm. (loud grunt) (painful noises) – [Cameraman] How bad is it? – Oh man, wave of
dizziness really quick. (loud yelling) Oh, searing pain,
absolute searing pain. There’s where the stinger
went in right there, did you guys see how
slow the sting was? – I see blood. (painful yelling) Oh my gosh. (painful yelling and grunting) Oh my gosh. – [Cameraman] I know
it’s tough to describe, but you gotta
describe it for us. – Okay, okay, okay, okay. My hand is completely seized
up and locked in place. This is like the tarantula hawk, look at the swelling that’s
beginning to form on my arm, forearm is incredibly total, only about 45
seconds have gone by. – [Cameraman] Careful
not to go over this cliff edge by the way. Let’s move over there. – Back up, back up,
back up, back up. (painful yelling) – [Cameraman] You gotta tell
us if you’re in trouble. Are you gonna be okay? – When the stinger
went into my arm, I had this like wave, like a wave came over me
and I got super dizzy, almost didn’t feel
what was happening, and then the pain just
was like immediate, immediately searing. (slow motion yell) (grunting) – [Cameraman] Look at your
arm, oh my gosh, look at that, look at that. Wow, you are
swelling like crazy. He’s swelling up bad. (loud grunt) Hang on a second, let’s put a circle around
where the swelling’s at to see the progression of it. This is the outer, and then that is the immediate
right there. (loud grunting) – Oh man, not a two, far
surpasses the tarantula hawk. Far surpasses the
tarantula hawk. (grunting) Here, here, here, look at this, if I turn my arm sideways, look at the welt on my. (grunting) Okay, can’t touch near it, sharp shooting pain
if I touch near it. – [Cameraman] Wow. – Oh my gosh. – I [Cameraman] I can
see that your wrist is starting to swell, do you
wanna take your watch off? Need help? – I got it, I got it, I got it. Ah. (loud grunting) No relief yet. It’s just a matter of
harnessing the pain, controlling the level of pain, and, rolling around
on the ground and screaming at this point really isn’t doing me any good. Alright, let’s cut
cameras and come back in about five minutes. Let me get a drink of water. (suspenseful music) – [Cameraman] Alright man, well,
I can definitely see that– – [Coyote] Don’t touch it. – [Cameraman] I’m not,
I’m not gonna touch it. I just wanna show
everyone at home, the swelling has
completely gone outside of these initial marks, I mean, and I don’t think you’re
out of the woods yet, I think that’s gonna
swell a whole lot worse. Yeah, we are only 20
minutes in a this point. 20 minutes since that stinger went deep into my forearm. You can see the discoloration
in my skin there, the massive goose
egg that has formed, the venom has worked
its way up my arm. – [Cameraman] Can
you show us the lump, can you hold you arm up at all? Oh my goodness. Wow. – I’m sure you guys
wanna know how this feels as compared to some of
the other tops insects on the sting index. It blows the cow killer out
of the water, no comparison. It definitely trumps
the tarantula hawk. And we’re talking blood ant, I would definitely say that
at this point it is on par and in just one month, the episode you have
all been waiting for, the sting of the
executioner wasp will determine who the true
kind of sting really is. We’re gonna monitor this
sting for the next 24 hours, and see what happens, I can promise you this much, I’ve got a world of pain ahead
of me for the next few hours. Alright, let’s get an outro and get back down to
civilization, you ready? I’m Coyote Peterson, be brave, (sighs)
stay wild, we’ll see you on
the next adventure. Oh that was a bad one. (suspenseful music) The hours following
my brutal sting we’re some of the most
painful I have ever faced and my arm continued
swelling to nearly double its normal size. The trauma that my
mind and body endured, today seemed like a blur, yet when we look back, there is a strange
similarity to the scenario I faced with a bullet ant. Both insect’s stingers became lodged in my arm, and as a result they put me
with a higher dosage of venom than I had originally
intended to take. When I compare the
stings side by side, I am completely
honest when I say that the Japanese giant hornet is an overall more intimidating and overall more painful
sting than the bullet ant. Absolute searing pain. (grunting) – [Cameraman] You alright man? – Yep. There’s no question about it, through my personal experience, the Japanese giant
hornet ranks as a four on the insect sting pain index, and in this very moment, I consider it to be the most
painful sting in the world. But will it be able to
hold onto its prized title as the king of sting? Stay tuned, we all know,
what’s coming next. Hey Coyote Pack, are you excited for the
conclusion to my climb up the insect sting pain index? If so, learn more

What Gall! The Crazy Cribs of Parasitic Wasps | Deep Look


Plenty of animals build
their homes in oak trees, but it’s another thing
entirely to get the oak tree to do all the work. To build your house for you. Say you’re an oak tree,
just sitting there minding your own business, when suddenly
this tiny wasp comes along. She says hey, why
don’t you build me a nursery for these baby
wasps I’m about to have? And then she injects her
eggs under your skin. You find yourself creating an
entirely new structure, one you would have never
built for yourself. What nerve, you
might say, what gall! And you’d be right. This thing, this parasitic
wasp house, it’s called a gall. There can be dozens of types
of galls on a single tree, each one built to order for
a specific species of wasp. They’re called
gall-inducing wasps, and each gall is weirder and
more flamboyant than the next. Sometimes the wasps
prefer a mobile home. This one is called
a jumping gall. It falls from the
tree and bounces across the ground like
a Mexican jumping bean until it finds a
safe place to hatch. As a protection
against predators, galls can taste
incredibly bitter, bitter like the bile produced
by a gallbladder. In fact, the earliest doctors
believed being bitter and angry meant an excess of
gall in the body. Anyway, back to our tree. Inside the gall, the
larvae mature and develop, and as they grow they
release chemicals that tell the tree
how to build the gall. The tree is tricked
into funneling nutrients into the gall to feed
the hungry wasp larvae. Scientists call this
a physiologic sink. For the larvae, it’s like
living inside a giant banana, an endless supply of food. But the peace and
quiet don’t last long. All that free food starts
attracting uninvited guests. That original wasp
itself becomes a host for another set of
wasps, called parasitoids. One study in the UK found
17 different wasp species living in one gall. But the oak tree? It does just fine, in most cases
unharmed by the tiny rivalries in tiny houses on its
branches and its leaves.

Fig Wasp Story

Fig Wasp Story


In nature, interactions among organisms
take many forms, and can have either positive or negative effects on the individuals involved. Competition is a type of interaction where
both individuals are negatively impacted because they are fighting for the same resource,
such as habitat or nutrients. Predation is a form of competition in which
one individual benefits while the other is harmed. The predator feeds and the prey… well, it
dies, when the predator is successful. Parasitism is a specialized form of predation,
where a larger organism is the host of a much smaller and sinister tenant. Parasites thrive
at the expense of the host. They have quicker They have quicker generation times and are
specialists, so most live their entire lives within a host. Mutualism is a relationship where both organisms
benefit from each other. Plants often recruit insects, to participate in a contract that
provides food in exchange for pollination. However, mutualism may share many characteristics
with parasitism, as is the case of obligate mutualism. Here,
instead of one thriving at the expense of the other neither can survive or reproduce without the
other. This is the definitive case of the fig tree
and the fig wasp. The fig is not a fruit, but a hollow garden
of flowers. A female fig wasp has laid her eggs and pollinated the flowers, which have
now reached maturity. The fig is a nursery, it has cared for the
future wasps by protecting them within its galls. The male wasps mature early. Wingless and
almost blind, they are the first to emerge from their galls. Then their essential ritual
begins, as he mates while the female is still in her gall, ensuring she has everything she
needs to produce eggs when she reaches maturity. Soon thereafter the females emerge. They look
very different, with antennae and large eyes, powerful wings
and a long ovipositor. They are not built to be enclosed, they are
meant to be free. They don’t have much time, for the fruit ripens
as soon as the galls are empty. Male wasps cut stamens and offer the pollen
to the females, which they take as a parting gift. Finally, the males proceed to dig a tunnel
to set the females free. They briefly witness the light of day in their
dying moments, while the females fly towards their quest
for another fig. The fig left behind rapidly ripens, which
attracts animals that will eat them and disperse their seeds.
This is the legacy of the wasp; she provides the pollination that completes the fig`s reproduction. Female wasps have very short lives and to
cope with this and the risk of missing out on pollination, fig trees randomly fruit throughout the year. And so the pollen-laden wasp reaches an immature
fig. But her journey is far from over; ahead lies the greatest challenge of her brief
life. Clawing and squeezing her way through the
gate her wings and antennae are ripped from her.
She makes the ultimate sacrifice, as the final push to enter bursts her abdomen. In an epic struggle between sacrifice and
survival, the mother wasp crawls through the narrow labyrinth towards the inner chamber. She is wounded
and weak, carrying only her eggs and the pollen gift of the former fig. If the wasp fails to pollinate the flowers,
no seeds will ever develop. Fig fruits with no future are costly to the tree, so they
will not receive an inflow of nutrients. If the wasp does not pollinate, the entire
fig may be aborted. However, if she devotes herself to pollination
as well as laying eggs, she ensures the fig will hold the promise of seeds. The tree will
pump sugars and nutrients into the fig, securing the future of seeds and larvae alike. When
they mature and leave, the fig will ripen, thus completing the cycle of mutual benefit
that has existed for millions of years. After so much effort, she finally reaches
the nursery to complete her mission. The pollen she carries will ensure the fig remains, and
so will her developing offspring. Struggling, she lays her eggs with her ovipositor
into receptive flowers. Finally, she unpacks her gift of pollen and
fertilizes the fig. After perpetuating the relationship, she lays
down in her grave of flowers. She has ensured life continues beyond her;
the tree will care for her young alongside its own developing seeds. In time, some seeds will grow into centennial
trees, and somewhere, out there, a mother wasp looks
for a fig. And so the mutual cycle starts anew.

Woman Lived With Cockroach In Her Ear For 9 Days

Woman Lived With Cockroach In Her Ear For 9 Days


Is this real life right now these things just
freak me out. Just imagine if you found out you had one
in your ear and doctors cant take it out for 9 days. I would be freaking out and would for sure
need medication to calm down. Hows it going Youtube I am landon Dowlatsingh
and this is where I talk about the news or anything else trending in the world. And make sure to stay till the end of this
video because I will be replying to all of your questions from the last video. Ok this right here is Katie Holley who woke
up one day with strange pain in her ear. So she investigated it to see if she can find
something and she actually discovered two coachroach legs poking out from her ear. Her husband tried to remove it with tweezers
but the cochroach would just wiggle deeper in the ear canal. Katie was taken to the hospital to have the
coachroach removed from her ear canal. Later that day an ear, nose, and throat specialist
managed to removed the cochroachs entire head, upper tose and ramining limbs and its antennae
in pieces. When everyone thought it was all removed Katie
still felt something in her ear and guess what 9 days later she had 6 more pieces of
coachroach still stuck in her ear. This next story is pretty messed up and its
becoming to common. A woman in her 20s in London was doused by
acid. Police and Fire fighters were called onto
the scene and you can see fire fighters hoseing down this woman and trying to stop her from
burning. Police right now are hunting for a man who
is believed to have carried out the targeted attack and fled. People took it to twitter to say this. Feel physically sick after walking past a
poor innocent person getting hosed down by firefighters after being caught in the middle
of an acid fight in Brixton. So scary that this can happen on our doorstep. Hope they are okay. Moving on to 13 yr old Trenton McKinley who
was involved in a very serious accident. Trenton was playing with his friends in March
in a trailer being pulled by a dune buggy. Well his friend suddenly slammed on the breaks
and the trailer Trenton was in flipped over and slammed his head into the concrete. He was rushed to the emergency room at USA
Medical Centre where doctors told his parents that he had seven skull fractures and he would
most likely be in a vegetative state where he can be kept alive by machines. Imagine this happens, someone you know or
love goes into a vegtable state what do you do. Do you keep that person alive or do you pull
the plug I would feel like I am killing that person if I pull that plug it’s a very taught
situation. Trentons parents were in this predicament. Trenton was declared brain dead, and was barley
breathing. His parents actually made theheart-breaking
decision to donate his organs to children in need of transplants. 5 kids actually needed organs that matched
him. The parents also said it was unfair to keep
bringing him back because it was just damaging his organs even more. So the parents were thinking about the kids
there son can save. The day before Trenton was meant to be taken
off of life support he began to show signs of brain activity. A miracle happens and Trenton woke up from
his coma. He has had 3 brain surgeries so far and was
finally allowed to go home. His life is for sure different now but its
insane this kid was just a day away from getting his power pulled and all the machines turned
off. Right now Tesla has been having a ton of problem. They are so backed up in production and by
the time every get there self driving cars all the other car companies will catch up
to Tesla. I mean they are already catching up with self
parking vechiles and lane assistance where you don’t need your hands completely on
the wheel. People are predicting that Tesla wont be the
innovators anymore. Well Elon Musk the CEo of Tesla believes in
his company so much he just bought shared worth close to 10 million dollars. That’s about 33,000 Tesla shares. I think these days its hard to bet into the
car industry. If Tesla doesn’t work out maybe we should
be investing in Uber. They seem to be the innovative ones. Nasa has been working with Uber to create
Uber in the Sky which is a Taxi and delivery service. Nasa is ensuring they will be the first ones
to dominate the air. So imagine ordering Uber Eats and it takes
just seconds to be delivered to you. There might soon be thousands of drones flying
in the sky delivering food, or packages. And also Uber has been working for a long
time on uber self driving cars or helicopters that can transport people to destinations
very quickly. The future seems to be here right now. A huge fortnite update, Thanas has just arrived
in the game. I have more updates on the Team 10 situation. Team 10 was a team create by Jake Paul and
has grown to become one of the most successful youtube squads. Well it seems to be un-folding under Jake
and his empire seems to be fading away. We all know CEO England is my city Nick Crompton
has stepped down. Chance & Anthony has also decide to quit team
10. These were Jake Pauls best friend. Tessa Brooks has also left and I might have
the reason why this is all happening. There has been a management shift in the company
and everyone is hating it. Apparently Jake Pauls dad Greg Paul has taken
over Jakes business and Logans business and for the past month Greg Paul audited both
companies and realize a lot of money is being spent in the company so Greg decide to cut
a ton of expenses. He fired some editors and other employees
in the company. CEO Nick Crompton doesn’t like this direction
of the business, and it seems to be rubbing people the wrong way. There are other reports saying that Greg Paul
might be fusing Jake & Logans businesses together to just make one super company. I am not sure that would be the best deicison. Well it seems like the Youtubers who quit
team 10 might have another job working with another massive Youtuber Faze banks. He took it to twitter to say this. Got open rooms for all you guys @TheNickCrompton
@imchancesutton @ImTessaBrooks Right now Jake paul has been losing a ton
of views. Hes still making millions but his company
seems to be going into the wrong direction. Instead gaining 6-7 million views a day on
Youtube he is gaining 2-3 million. I really hope Jake figures his company out
and hopefully hiring his dad can work out for him if not I hope he has the guts to fire
his dad. As soon as they hired him things seem to quickly fall apart.
