If his comments weren't so censored I'd think he'd be seeing this a lot more. One of the most irritating things about Alfie is that so many of the things he complains about are OBVIOUSLY his own doing. Particularly bad is the "I wanted to be doing (fill in the blank) but I had to edit this vlog for you guys". Dude, that's you're own decision! He has so much control and yet almost never puts the blame on himself for not planning or taking initiative.

it's gone now. the gleam team strikes again.

i'm so sick of PointlessWhinging.............. like does he not realize that he has twenty times the flexibility of someone with a more traditional job?? i don't know how much longer i can even hatewatch him. he has no concept of his privilege at all.

His views are going down as well, none of his videos have reached 1 million. In the next couple years he'll be irrelevant begging successful youtubers to collab with him

when you just can't stop yourself from rolling your eyes at yet another mini inspirational speech about "taking time out" in Alfie's latest vlog. out of anyone, he among other youtubers are the minority in the world who can afford and make the time to have "time out". what about those who work every day 9-5 all year around and some only get a few weeks off in an entire year at best? He is so so so disconnected from real life

So I got an email from the social bakers and this event in Prague and the thumbnail looked like Froggy and when I checked YT it was him.

So I looked at the cheapest tickets for the event and he was a "guest speaker" last year - nearly £550 over $700!
What cut did he get??ImageImage

And what a horrible example to set for young viewers, especially because I can't believe this is true. "Your grades don't matter! Apply with your YouTube videos and you'll get in!" So entitled..

Wow lol. Sounds like something Trump would say, in all honesty. Actually it was probably a scam school like Trump University that offered him a place lol.

BY THE WAY, if this is true, it's certainly not something to be proud of-- it means that some school was more interested in the exposure from an online 'celeb' than academics, and all it does is prove what we've all been saying and they constantly deny-- that YTers are handed things they don't deserve. Alfie thinks it shows they were so impressed by, what? His filming of the Yoga challenge? There are students creating actual short films that still have to apply for a spot at school.

Hi everyone, extremely long time lurker first time poster, hopefully doing this right! :)
Slightly o.t, but has been bugging me for a while. I feel like if he was a girl more people would notice this? But I'm currently in recovery from an eating disorder and he is so freaking triggering sometimes! He's always talking about how he hasn't eaten anything that day yet etc, I mean obviously he then goes on to eat a load of rubbish (don't even get me started on his and Zoe's eating habits) but I just feel like it's a classic example of how unaware he is of other people and how what he says could have an effect.
Bit of a ramble sorry, probably just me but I kept thinking it recently!

There is NO way a serious university would ask someone like pointlessasshole to apply without any qualifications. He's lying.

from the same interview
"BI: Presumably some people do now set out to become famous deliberately. It seems to me that authenticity is a huge part of it. Someone who sets out deliberately to become a YouTube star, that sounds a bit cheesy."

"A: Well, in the UK, being a YouTuber was the No.1 suggested job from teenagers, of what they wanted to do in the future, last year."

The only evidence of Mr Deyes comments were from a Daily Mail article from 2014.

Who is lazy Alfie trying to kid with all this running everywhere. We know you have at least 23.5 free hours every single day to do anything you want you fraud!

He probably did get offered something like that from a bad uni with a degree that could be done over a weekend. Uni is just big buisness now selling education.

Also, that uni thing is absolute buuuuuullshit. They gave him an unconditional offer based on his crappy 2010/2011 videos?

ha i remember him saying in a video about how he was offered that place in uni. I am from Ireland but you cannot get into university here unless you have done your leaving cert exams and got enough points or a pre college course and got certain grades and this would be normal for media related courses so I reckon like said above it was a tump uni scam.

imagine if he had fell for it, maybe he would of learned some real life lessons. he shouldn't be allowed spout bullshit about education, he is barely educated and it's strange his father seems highly educated. so dumb.

His little message at the end "thanks for the tickets Ed." Bro fuck off your management contacted his PR team. You had/have 0 interaction with him.

Aren't we supposed to start a new thread after 40?

Hmmm... my friend was accepted to university without doing any A levels, just based on her personal statement. It was Portsmouth though, so not the best university out there, but not the worst either. So, I guess something similar could possibly happen?

Yeah, there was once case in my school where someone was offered an unconditional offer on their predicted A Level grades. She had pretty good predicted grades but it was quite a sub-par uni which is why she got the offer. It maybe have been a similar case for alfie

And didn't Alfie do science based A levels? Maybe he was applying for a media based degree so he showed them his youtube for supporting evidence of his "talent" :rofl:

Wow yet again he's late to a meeting, so disrespectful it's unreal. And it was a very important meeting, I don't know why anyone still works with you, you're a child.
