Internet celebrities come and go, but there are a few that have hung on longer than their 15 minutes of fame usually allow. Jake Paul gained fame as a teenager for his crazy antics and the YouTube videos he posted “Everyday Bro”. As he’s gotten older, both he and his brother have transitioned into the boxing world, where they have become fighters that everyone loves to hate. But how did Jake get to where he is, after “coming from nothing”? Have all of his money-making ventures been on the up and up? And I guess the real question, why does anyone care about what he does? We’ll dive into this and a whole lot more on this episode of AHC Podcast.
