He definitely has the potential to be very high up on the hypergamy scale even at his age. Even the reporter seemed into him.

Why in the modern world it's all about money???!! He didn't invent cure from cancer, he hasn't created anything amazing and he is not a person who saved millions of lives, he just became famous doing what???...unboxing stuff on YouTube! And now he's reselling, not even producing anything good!!! Wow!! What a dumb society we live in!!!! You folks deserve to extinct like pointless dinosaurs!! While watching reality shows, getting fat and swiping right buying crap

I’ve made 60k once because my parents promised me they will take me to the Maldives but they had to got to work so they gave me 60k and I didn’t even care I was crying because they never spend time with me and I could care less about 60k they think they can buy my happiness and I might sound like an ass but 60k is nothing and nothing to them and it was my 13 birthdays it was probably the worst birthday ever

Unfortunately, as this is a 2 year old story, it doesn't look as though it panned out. I can't find Flogg on the app store, and there are multiple copies of Impossible Rush, and I can't find the original. I would say the closest thing to Flogg is Wish...

Just because you watch this do not drop out kids. You will not end out rich like him. You will most likely become a prisoner. I would know, my brother is serving 35 years for murder and he dropped out at 15.

The moment I saw his hair I new this would be bad
richard (14 days ago)
He might be technically brilliant, but I think the biggest problem of being a CEO at such a young age is that everybody tries to outplay you and use your lack of experience for own benefit

richard Yeah that's what sucks about it

4:45, remember that episode of Rick and Morty in which Morty became a confident broker at wall street? And had a red-hair girlfriend?
claxcyr (17 days ago)
Why do newsreporters in the US always speak so fake, like if someone would speak like that in a regular conversation, you'd think they're nuts. I would feel so patronized watching the news everyday. You're doing the news, not reading a bedtime story.

Breezy Mods (17 days ago)
If I was his dad I’d let him know that he sounds like a douchebag when he says shit like Justin’s Bieber wants to be my friend. What a loser couldn’t even finish highschool. I never went and they passed me. Also humans don’t like being told what they need and are very jealous creatures so these stupid got rich quick stories are annoying as fuck. I will never use a flog or an eBay I’ve got better shit to do craigslist is the only good site
Breezy Mods Why you getting butthurt over stupid shit, Tf?

I commend the kid. I just hope the money doesnt send his morals and values downstream as he gets older. Kudos to the parents for being so supportive. I can tell he has very nurturing parents
