What is Kids Next Door??

Kids Next Door (K.N.D.) is a collective group of 9 teen influencers who already have a huge fan base with millions of followers on social media platforms. The credit for forming this group goes to Marcus Olin, the 21-year-old who moved to L.A. from Oregon and launched Kids Next Door, a “content house” in May. Sharing a house with eight other influencers, including his girlfriend Stephanie Margarucci, they created a buzz with their multiple posts and creative content.

Kids Next Door Mansion..!! Where is the Kids Next Door Located ??

Since they and their mansion have quite been mentioned in the news and in discussions, you are bound to be eager to know all the details-

Located in Los Angeles, California, these members are trying to live up to their name by respecting their neighborhood and showing content can be created even without causing chaos and building the so-called college vibes.

The residence is a million-dollar manor with a capacious backyard, photogenic amenities, a luxurious pool, and extensive outdoor space in a quiet street. 

The concept of collab houses makes it easy for new arrivals to Los Angeles: They have a nice place to live in, a built-in friend group, and of course, constant access to collaborators. On top of it, if a brand or a management company is sponsoring the house, the tenants may only have to produce a few TikToks and a YouTube video every week as a form of in-kind rent, and they are good to go.

We know the pandemic have proved to be the trigger of many such houses in order to provide a safe place for creators to collab; as a result, many creative groups have announced their formations, like KND, who declared their appearance on May 16, 2020, with a group Insta account and settling at a modern, spacious mansion.

Who Are The Members Of The Kids Next Door?

Marcus Olin, having 8.5 million followers, conveyed that he always wanted a collab house and saw this time as a perfect opportunity, thereby becoming a founder of KND. He bought along 7 other Gen Z influencers, including his girlfriend, to make this new collab house a success. It is one of the many TikTok houses that are set around the United States where house members live, eat, sleep, and, most importantly, brainstorm unique ideas for their videos. From this, they also get in contact with brands that can bring money for the creators.

Transition in Kids Next Door

Age is just a number, proved Marcus Olin when this 21yr old launched a content house ‘Kids Next Door.’ The house gained its name because of the power couple that was well known for their matching Neon-coloured hair.

 It was a luxurious house full of teenagers whose profession involved making videos, having fun, and having parties any time of the day, that too with no supervision. Of course, it was going to be crazyyy..!! And it definitely was with all its college party kinda vibes. Initially, people in the neighborhood were disturbed by their lifestyle and started complaining about their frat-like behavior. 

Olin concedes-

At first, like, the neighbors were definitely not happy at all,” “But we’re trying to be as quiet as possible.

Seeing the fuzz they were creating, the group soon changed their ways. Marcus and other members realized that partying should not be the purpose, and if they have to maintain their house, they need to be disciplined..

TikTok at danger- TikTok influencers say ‘everybody is going to take a big hit

With all the love and fame from the audience came a startling blow from the government. After an order from the U.S. President Donald Trump that will ban all the social media apps if their Chinese parent ByteDance does not reach a deal to divest it by a specific time period

Adam Miguest said-“For two to five months, maybe, everybody is going to take a big hit. Everyone is going to lose a stream of revenue. I think it’s really stupid… what Trump is doing,”

If TikTok goes down, so will the career paths of all the TikTok creators. While few have some backup plan or ideas, others have no suggestion about where to look and what to do next..!! They are concerned that this will majorly affect their livelihood and lifestyle. Also, due to the massive impact of TikTok on generation, any change will be directed seen.

Orona said.

“If it does get banned, I have a backup plan, of course, which is to move to the YouTube platform or use the Reels on Instagram,”

Another industry that would be deeply affected is the music industry.. In today’s times, many songs make their way to the top after being viral by TikTok videos. Their value would be seriously affected if all the usage and promotion will suddenly stop.
