Jake Paul Career
Jake began his video career in September 2013. After Vine was acquired by Disney in January 2017, Jake was cast in the sitcom “Bizaardvark.” On the show, his catchphrase was “It’s Everyday Bro!” (As an aside, that catchphrase is grammatically incorrect. “Everyday” refers to something that is commonplace, ordinary, or routine, as in “these are my everyday run-of-the-mill socks.” I’m pretty sure Jake means “It’s Every Day, Bro!” which means something that happens every day…)
During the second season of “Bizaardvark,” Jake was fired in July 2017. By that point, Paul had sparked a slew of controversies, including complaints from his neighbors about wild parties, pranks, and fire hazards, as well as massive crowds of young fans who gathered in the street outside of Paul’s rented house after he posted his address on social media. Paul confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he was fired from the Disney Channel show due to the uproar over his parties and the local news coverage of it.
Jake Paul established Team 10 in January 2017. Team 10 is a creative agency and digital influencer marketing platform that creates and promotes entertainment for teenagers. In May of that year, he released “It’s Everyday Bro,” a song and music video. In one month, the video received over 70 million views. Paul posted a video titled “I lost my virginity” in early January 2018. The thumbnail for the video showed Paul and his then-girlfriend Erika Costell semi-nude on top of each other. As a result, YouTube age-restricted the video. Paul changed the thumbnail to a photo of the couple dressed up.
On January 20, 2020, Paul made his professional boxing debut in Miami. He competed against fellow YouTubers Gib. Jake won with a TKO 2:18 into the first round.
