The venture arrives with an all-new monthly series dubbed The Hot Seat, which will see the YouTube star interviewing celebrity guests, with TikTok star Noah Beck appearing in the very first episode. “These videos wont be demonetized,” Merritt teased on Patreon, “so you know it’s going to get spicy.”
The first 100 Patrons will receive a personalized merch care package, and Merritt has vowed to eat a Carolina Reaper once he surpasses 1,500 Patrons.
