Connor Franta Part 2

illegal_mind wrote:the price of the coffee isn't that surprising. everything that youtubers sell is overpriced. but $1? that's a really low value. i mean, with a higher price like that, it should be $5 to charity. and the rest of the money to the people making it. since it is for charity, he shouldn't make any profit, but as long as his cut is smaller than the cut that goes to charity, it's not that bad. but i'm gonna guess that's not the case and he's probably getting $5 per bag sold
Tbf the capital costs of coffee production are probably pretty low but the market prices of similar products are much and such the same. Plus the company that makes the product, the distributors, advertisers etc etc need to all be paid. It's super unlikely that Connor even gets $5 of the profit. $1 is actually pretty reasonable to donate.

Also, why shouldn't he be paid? He's the driving force of what's selling the coffee? Yeah it's for charity as well but he's probably put a lot of effort and his own time into making this.

Honestly I just don't bother with YouTuber merch. TRXYE jumpers are 40 dollars, and I just think that's a waste of money. I know YouTubers need to make money, but 27$ (including shipping) for coffee? I'm not a coffee drinker so I don't really know the standard prices for good coffee beans, but that seems a bit much. I can only hope that with the extra expense comes the benifit of it not being produced my child laborers.

I know that the coffee seems like a lot of money, but for really good coffee beans that actually isn't too bad. I'm not a coffee drinker either, and I don't think I will ever be a coffee drinker. My mum is all about coffee, and knows a lot about it, she's pretty obsessed haha. She doesn't like the grocery store coffee, so usually she gets premium coffee beans from Guatemala, she gets the medium sized bag for a week, and sometimes gets the large, but rarely ever because she ends up not using it all, and the medium size is perfect for her. It's 50 dollars for one bag of her Coffee beans, (the medium size, it's actually a better deal to get the medium size.) I know it seems crazy, but I think because his coffee is premium, good coffee he isn't overpricing it. Most premium Guatemalan coffee beans cost around the same price, or even more. But the only thing is I think that the people who buy it should really love coffee, because that means that the purchase will be completely worth it. I don't think Fan girls (who don't even like coffee) should buy the coffee just because they want to support Connor. I mean, that is really nice of them but they may as well be spending their money on something they'll really enjoy. My friend was thinking about getting a bag of his coffee, when she hates coffee. She doesn't have a lot of money, so I convinced her to save it for something she's really going to use. So yeah, for the real big coffee lovers I think that it could be worth it, but for people who don't like coffee than I don't think it's worth it.

okay, thanks! I didn't know it could be that expensive (and I thought Starbucks was overpriced lol). I totally agree, don't buy the coffee jsut for the brand name. You might as well just donate the 27 bucks to charity imo

Yes, he left with Troye. They ended up on the same flight as Tyler and Korey. Interestingly, I didn't see any pictures of Troye that didn't have Connor in them too except from his M&G.

I wondered why Connor left early? Do you guys know whether he has something to catch in LA? Troye went back for the Grammys and so did Tyler but I wasn't aware Connor has any commitments for that event.

Maybe it's something related to the Grammy's, like one of the viewing parties.

I don't know why he's not attending the actual award ceremony because he announced the nominees! It seems unfair to me, especially when bloody Ingrid is attending the Grammy's and she has nothing to do with the music world. And I remember Mere (Stilababe09) attended the grammys last year, so I don't see why he's not going, since 1, he's a musician, a pretty popular one I might add, since 2, he announced the nominees, and since 3, If people like Ingrid who have nothing to do with music are invited, shouldn't Troye be invited too? After all he's actually in the music world.

Capitol Records might also be throwing a party. Who knows why he isn't attending, but if he is flying right back home after a few hours at Playlist
i imagine he is working 24/7 on his record.

Yeah at Grammy weekend they have a lot of parties building up to the big night (and after the awards) where a lot of really important people attend. Record execs, producers, writers, everyone; basically the top people so that is definitely a place where a musician wants to be. The show is just optics while everything else is the perfect networking opportunity.
Guess we're protecting them now :? ;)

Connor's new video "First dates" should make lots of people happy, as it's not a hipster type of video. Back to doing skits.
I enjoyed it, and the ending was very sweet.. As much as I'd love to see Connor and Troye out together on Valentine's Day, I hope they get to spend it in peace somewhere.

Tbh I wouldn't have been surprised if Troye had been his date :D But I loved the video, it was absolutely adorable and reminded me of why Connor is one of my favs.

Ah unfortunately I was quite sure that he wouldn't put Troye in the video (even though that would have been an amazing way to reveal their relationship if they had wanted everyone to know about it!), but I still held my breath when he opened that door :D

at least he's being truthful. like, he dated girls back in the day when he was in denial, but his "now" date was a guy, instead of him wearing a wig, pretending to be a girl, just to pander to the fangirls that wanna date him. so i'm glad he opted for showing the date was a guy.
glad it's a skit, and not some love and relationship q&a/advice, like so many vloggers normally do for valentine's day

Yeah that's actually what I expected when read the video title, like a thing where he gives advice on how to dress, what to talk about, where to go etc for a first date. SO glad he did the skit instead! And you're also right with the girl/guy thing, very well done on his part.
