He's definitely holding out buying a new camera in the hopes a company will see his vlogs moaning about the broken one and will send him a new one. He's so gross.

Hopefully none will. All he does is damage them, then make out it's the product's fault. That's not a good look for any company willing to send him one.

Casey Neistat gets cameras sent to him all the time. Maybe Alfie believes he's up there with Casey and will have someone send him something one day haha.

I totally got the vibe today that he was at the beach to kill time, he wasn't allowed home yet. Either they are moving and wanted to hide whoever was at the house or Zoe has whipped him good and he can't stand up for himself.

It's so annoying because Alfie has the potential to be a great man. Great as in, living life through himself, using his own skills and enjoying it! Same thing with Zoe, they have their positives but they're like two drug addicts who are trying to get clean, but find their way back to each other. They feed negatively off each other and it just creates what we see now.


Does anyone know if they made Zalfie into a brand? Could that be why they are 'forcing' themselves to be together? Poppy and Sean have been together longer but I feel like they got it right. They actually do love each other.


Also, that one time when Alfie was going to the Beauty and the Beast premiere, without Zoe, didn't he insist on that he was single? And he was totally standing by that statement and I could just imagine what Zoe's face was like because she was like 'no you're notttt' while probably giving him that 'you're going to ruin the Zalfie brand' bitchface.

Wait, when did this happen? If that was discussed on here, I totally missed it!

I can't remember which one. It has to be one of Alfie's videos, because I highly doubt Zoe would leave that in? He was sitting on the stairs putting his shoes on and was saying to the camera how he was single. For some reason I'm remembering it to be when he was leaving to see that movie again, and Zoe was filming him. She was telling him he can't say that because it's not true and I remember him totally owning his statement of being single. I felt like it was one of those things where it was actually true haha. I'll post the title of the vlog when I find it, unless somebody else remembers this?

That pathetic excuse for a motivational speech, Alfie you're nothing to aspire to, you literally do nothing and complain you have a busy life!

The headband at the end if today's vlog.... really!!!

And if he's having such a busy day/week how does he find time to meet friends/walk on the beach/go to the gym ect ect to me these are day off activities... they don't know a days work or what busy means!!!

I don't know why I keep watching his vlogs they are nothing but cringe. He reminds me of a high school teenage boy, but for some reason I can't help but watch this "car crash" channel.

I know, I really do question why I do it to myself! I think it's because I get so angry, I get all my frustration out with getting mad at such a fool he is!

His "inspirational" speech this morning... blimey. He really does think he's God's gift, doesn't he. When he's done this in the past I have got so cross I have left a comment telling him he is ridiculous and naive, but on this video a few other people have done that for me! I am just constantly staggered at how stupid he is thinking that if you really want something, you can get it. He is so unaware of how fortunate he is.

Also, how can someone have grown up in Brighton and not know which "prince or king or someone" made the Pavilion?

@noseyrosey22

It was in Zoe's vlog called Cold legs and rasberry crisps. Around 3.20
Don't know why she left it in. Maybe to make him look bad.

Would be easier to listen to his inspirational speeches if he was living a life to aspire to. Ok they have created wealth. But when I watch the two of them all I see is fake happiness, forced. They are living
The life you think of as "grown up" when your about 12, how you think things are gonna be. You then grow up and realise there's more to life than that.

Atleast when I watch poppy and Sean I see a couple who actually seem to value spending time together and enjoy each other.

Re: the motivational speeches, I personally do ascribe to the whole "if you want something, get it"-thing, but the problem with Alfie is that he is completely blind to how lucky he is. If he could acknowledge that, for him, luck was a huge factor in his success, it'd be easier to listen to. Even with all the hard work in the world, you often still need a little luck to help you out.

His motivational speech in yesterday's vlog was the worst yet, and soooo many of the top comments are saying how cringe it was and how he always talks about how good it is to get things done and be productive like fixing his fence (that broke months ago) and then he never does it himself haha

the gleam team must be deleting comments again because the only one i saw that was kinda negative was still kissing his ass. it's so embarrassing because half the comments are like "idk why everyone's complaining about the intro, i thought it was great!!!!" but there are no comments complaining about the intro anymore, so it's so obvious that someone's been deleting them lol.

also can i just say how sick i am of him trying to be casey neistat with the whole "just do it!!!! put in the work!!!" thing? gross.

I agree with all of the above. I hardly ever see any criticism in the comments on his videos and EVERYONE on youtube has criticism in their comments. Plus, there's nothing wrong with trying to be inspirational, but he lacks self awareness about his own life. If he's sharing the highlights of his days in his vlogs - WOW - he hardly does anything of value with his time. I think he genuinely believes that him pushing merch, uploading vlogs of nothingness, and finding ways of pandering to a pre-teen audience is actually admirable and something that others should aspire to. His head seems so far up his own ass that I don't think he realizes there are plenty of vloggers who actually leave the house to do and share exciting things - not just get takeaway again.

They definitely are! The first thing I noticed when I first watched the vlog was the staggering amount of comments slagging him off for the self-obsessed delusional hypocrite he really is. I scrolled for ages and every third comment was about his cringeworthy "motivational speech". Alfie normally never moderates comments so that should tell you how many thumbs up the comments were getting. What an absolute idiot.

If anyone hasn't already, check out BBC 3's new comedy called pls like, it's on youtube.

It's a mockumentry style show that pokes fun at vloggers. You might see some heavy Alfie influence in the first episode.

"I don't know how some daily vloggers manage to fit doing their washing, cleaning their house, like, I don't know how people fit it into their life. Like going to get their car washed. Even that took time the other day."

I............ He's EXHAUSTING to watch. How can he not hear himself? I don't understand how he could possibily think he doesn't have the time to do anything. He wakes up early in the morning, he goes to the gym, 6 hours magically pass and it's suddenly time for lunch, another 5 hours pass and it's time for dinner and then either TV or going out. He vlogs for 15 minutes a day at most. How hard can it be to edit that kind of footage after years of editing experience? Do those '''meetings'''' really need to be 6 hours long? How long could washing take for literally TWO people living in that house? I'm going to stop watching his vlogs cause he's turned into a parody of a parody of himself. Truly unbelievable.

I'm dead
That "Plz Like" sketch is too fricking funny.

And the fact they renamed Gleam Beam
And Zoella to "Millipede"

I'm dying

He's had THE most privileged life
- Dad is a Director at London School of Economics. So never faced money issues.
- His parents never divorced. Tbh Alfies mum probably was just a stay at home mum since she does nothing but gardens now. So had a loving family life.
- Never bullied. He said he was quite popular at school. No childhood issues.

So he's had the most linear life. I'm slightly jealous as someone who's had every obstacle in the world. But it's made me more resilient and a humbled person.

If Alfie went bankrupt tomorrow it'd be hilarious.

The wax figures bit had me laughing cause it's obviously about them. I bet Zoe and Alfie will try and make it a positive and say that they are so famous look it's all about us!

I guess I hate myself, because I went back to watch the 'Honest Q&A' video, even though I knew it would be insufferable. But boy, it was special wasn't it? I did love this comment though, which is currently the 3rd top comment (!). I can't believe it hasn't been removed.

I can't believe that comments still there and it nearly has 400 likes. It looks like some fans are agreeing as well
